    Try 15,000 and 800 rep points.

    You guys are far from the only ones. I don't see what good it does to complain about it.

    If we still had rep, I'd give you some for the good attitude.

    Agreed. I know RichRed wasn't on the initial list, but I'll be the first to admit that he's a very good poster and attitudes like this one are the kind that I like to see. That doesn't mean you should be happy about it losing something you previously could access, but it's certainly not the end of the world, either. If ORG access, in its current format is what you want, there's a very viable solution.

    I have a short temper when it comes to Reds baseball. Short temper + game threads don't match too well. I was doing better lately of avoiding the game threads but I was a little too late. I'm disappointed but I understand Boss's decision. No hard feelings from me. I love this board too much (I spend hours a day on here) and I would hate to think I am bringing this board down or anything like that.

    Pretty much how I feel OBM. I'm more hurt then anything. To see Boss doesn't think I am in the top 240 posters on the board hurts. I'm not mad, but I take alot of pride in my posts and being a Reds fan. So to see that was definatley dissapointing.

    They can be hard to find when mixed in with Game Thread minutia

    After thinking about it a little more, I'm up for giving it another go, but it will have to wait a bit. This summer is going to be busy for work related reasons.

    I sure some might think it is strange that people might have to work at posting, but my personal knowledge of baseball is limited (particularly when compared to many here) and I have to use my curiosity to go find interesting items in order to add to the boards. To learn more about the Reds and baseball is why I visit the RedsZone to begin with, but it helps when you can be part of the discussion rather than just lurker.

    I certainly had input, but it was not solely my decision - GIK and I had the final call, with input from the moderators. But I'm not here to debate why certain people are in and certain people are not.

    OK, one more question. I know I've had a few. Without the rep system and with the separation. What type of policing can we expect in the Sundeck? While the ORG will be free from the trolls (and I think we all know who they are), they're now free to run around and pollute the Sundeck seemingly at will. Will suspension and bans be handed out more freely, or will those of us in the Sundeck just be better off ignoring those that are constant offenders?

    Boss and GIK -

    I think I have read through all the questions about the changes but if mine has already been asked please excuse it...

    I am skeptical of how the changes will affect the board, but I am willing to give it time and see how it works for the long term. I know that you two have the best interests of the board and quality Reds discussion in mind and I certainly appreciate that.

    Here's my question: If users before were reluctant to give out negative reputation points, do you believe that users will now be more likely to "vote against" someone coming up to ORG? If not, then I don't see much difference between the reputation and voting systems.

    Thanks also for being upfront with all the different questions, complaints, praise, etc..

    Yes, I do, because it's done anonymously. Additionally, the fact that >= 75% of the total votes must approve a user, that alone makes it more difficult to receive access than the reputation system that, toward the end, allowed several users with high reputation the ability to leave upwards of 30 points for a poster. That's certainly not their fault that they had high reputation scores - it's just a system that needed to be replaced with a better long term alternative.

    good work guys...

    While, I still think the org could/would/should be able to post in the Sun Deck... I don't know the reason behind why they cannot.

    I think it should be noted that no reading access has been affected, only certain posting privileges. How else can the moderators modify negative behavior if they don't occasionally withdraw or bestow privileges?
    Lets think of the overall good of the board, rather than our own specific situation.
