    Opinions on RZ changes

    As the recent changes impact those of us without ORG status, it seemed worthwhile to see how you feel about them.

    I honestly don't know. At a certain level, I like the definitive nature of x posts and y rep versus an anonymous, black box ORG vote.

    OTOH, posters that didn't meet the old criteria but present valuable new perspectives may get in sooner.

    On a related note, I find many of the Sun Deck threads at least as interesting as what goes on in ORG. Guess I'll just keep plugging away and aspire to ORG status someday...

    Re: Opinions on RZ changes

    I don't post here often and have no clue what happened. Could someone update me? I'd like to know what happened to the Reds Live forum.......that is where I hung out.

    I hate this new setup..........and I just realized it was new. I almost wondered if I had had privileges taken away from me for some unknown reason.

    Anyway.........I think the board sucks now. Just my opinion. Instead of all Reds fans being able to post on here..........and not all Reds fans feel the need to post every 5 minutes, hourly or even daily.........but maybe once a week or once every couple of weeks................this board has become a clique for only those who frequent it alot.

    I think the new setup sucks. I'm thinking about starting a new Reds Board with Forums...........this one has gone down the drain.
    Who's on first?

    I thought the whole rep thing was pretty bloody... what's the word... unnecessary. Were the boards in that bad a shape that users have to be okayed just to get an avatar?

    While I am disappointed to have my ORG privileges taken away, I understand the purpose of doing it this way. And I don't really have a problem with it, hopefully I'll be able to get back in sooner or later. We'll see.

    The ONLY thing that I don't understand is not letting ORG posters use the SunDeck.

    Other than that, I don't really have a problem with any of it.

    Re: Opinions on RZ changes

    The rep system was often used a way for people to attack others without being caught by moderators. Poster A would send a snarky comment and a negative rep to Poster B and what usually ended up happening was that Poster B would be the one to get in trouble for bringing it up in the public thread. This happened often usually without consequence to the original tricksters, so I am glad with the new changes.

    I dislike not being able to talk to the newbies. I feel like General Pinochet.

    Its a forum, our lives really havent changed. I just liked the chance to relpy to all posts but I found I rarely left post in the ORG anyway so whats the big deal?
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    I dodn't care for the rep points much and reall don't like the new system, but, it's not my board, I dont have to do the work that Boss and GIK do, so what works for them is what really matters.
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.

    The one thing I would like to do is talk about tonight's lineup. The problem is that if I started a discussion about tonight's lineup it will inevitably turn into a game thread and I don't want to be responsible for starting a game thread where there isn't supposed to be one. But that's one of the privileges of being in the ORG and I hope I get back there, until then I'll have to wait until after the games to talk about the lineups. Oh well.

    Not just newbies, plenty of us that have been around for awhile that will miss getting into with the most negative Reds fan ever.

    I really don't post that much, but I really miss not being able to discuss the games. I also think ORG posters should be able to post in the Sun Deck. They often provide very good analysis and responses and help create better discussion.

    I have no problem not being allowed to post in ORG, but I think ORG posters should be allowed to post in the Sun Deck. I think the Sun Deck is a very watered down Reds Live.

    Ditto that I'm sorry for those who were kicked out of the ORG though. I am relatively new and while I was gaining Rep. pretty quick, I wasn't a member of the ORG. I understand how it must be pretty upsetting to feel that you aren't wanted in a "Club" anymore after you have been a member, whether it was for a long or short period of time
