    Anyone else rather be in the Sun Deck?

    Hey, apparently along with many other posters, I have lost my status as an ORG poster. Some may be angry at this and be disappointed, but I'd rather be in the Sun Deck myself. I find that the dialogue is much more candid and more like what you would find at the park. Different people and many different opinions. Anyone else rather be in the Sun Deck?

    I would rather have access to both forums but I can live with the Sun Deck if I must. I'll miss the Game Threads though so I guess I'll have to go to the chat during the games to discuss what's going on.

    I HATE not being able to post on both forums.... I don't like being able to read stuff and not be able to give my opinion.

    Me too. It's hard for me to read something that I disagree with and not have the right to refute it (in ANY forum).

    I think I may have to NOT read the Sun Deck forum, as I know it's going to become frustrating.

    I do think there should be a game thread in each forum.

    If you can't reply there's no sense in even entering the forum.

    I'm waiting for Natty Redlocks to compose a song called 'Sun Deck" to the tune of Gordon Lightfoot's 'Sundown'.

    Of course, Natty's gonna have to dig up the file on Napster to do it......

    There's no question it's completely strange too me. I have yet to even try to post, so I don't know where I am able to post. But I am not gonna like not having the ability to post my opinion on a thread. Oh well, we will see how it goes, my guess is not very well. But I sorta understand the logic behind making some type of move, I just don't feel this is the right one.



    Check that I must be ON DECK because I no longer have an Avatar. Hmmm, that really makes me wonder?

    OTOH, if you don't enter the other forum how do you judge the quality of posts made by people who apply or get nominated for admission into ORG?

    Sorry if I'm not supposed to have details on this topic since I never had access to ORG, but did some sort of Survivor type voting off occur to send people down to only Sun Deck posting capabilites with this board change?

    I dont understand what happened. It said for access the ORG you could go to user CP then go to groups or something and get approved if you met the criteria. So I did that made one post in ORG then got my privilages revoked again.

    I dont really know why there cant be 2 game threads if we cant post in the ORG. The chat is alright but I would rather have the game thread available to post in.

    I am going to miss the all negative points from the elites... one person in particular saved some up in the off season just for me. He is a very thoughtful, nurturing person. I kind of liked having every one of my posts scrutinized by this hole.

If a user chooses to apply for Old Red Guard access instead of being nominated by an existing member, these users must be registered a minimum six months and have a minimum 200 posts."

    In reading this I thought the applying consisted of being a member for 6 months and having at least 200 posts.

    Maybe I just read your link wrong now that I go back and look at it again though. Just because Boss said he removed any members taking advantage of this flaw doesnt really consist of him saying I cheated the system. Sorry, just been a rough day overall.

    It was a flaw in that users could join the ORG group without application/voting ( not that they were purposely trying to do that). I know that you didn't try to cheat the system - based on the provided vB documentation, I was expecting all users who applied to be placed into a queue pending moderator approval. Instead, however, once someone tried to join the group, they were immediately part of the group. I'm working right now on finding out how to get it to function the way we intended.
