In no way am I saying that the posters here are inferior to those at the ORG, but the quality of some posts seems to be missing. For example, I believe I count four threads that were started and are currently on the first page of the SD that are one line comments about the what happened during the specific game. I don't believe one line observations merit their own thread. Reds44 has started posting post game observation threads in which I think those type of posts are more appropriate.

    Two reasons I think this hurts the quality of the Sun Deck board. One, it is hard to have a meaningful baseball discussion in a thread that only contains one sentence. If you are going to start a thread, put some thought behind it and make it a solid post. If you have a one sentence comment or observation try to find the thread in which it might belong. Secondly, the threads that have been started that are well-thought out and solid get lost in the mess and I have a hard time finding them. This hurts the quality of the conversation and the posters who are making good posts.

    So I guess my point is I don't think a thread should be started unless you have a developed and well thought out point or question. Right now I see a lot of "useless" threads that are hard to comment on. Am I off base here, what do others think?
    This is the most useless thread I've read on here since I joined.

    Can you say smug?

    What are the other reds forums on the net?

    I for one like the separation.

    One thing though. I feel that there should be 3 Reds forums here.
    1. Baby Red - Unmoderated forum. This is where all the really crummy posters (like myself) are allowed to interact. ORG members aren't allowed to even access this forum, thus eliminating most of the potential complaining about "quality of threads." Also, if a poster wants to get promoted from Baby Red to the Sun Deck, all they have to do is whine to any Mod or post any thread about "quality of posts" and they are instantly "promoted" to the Sun Deck, losing their "Baby Red" posting rights in the process.

    2. Sun Deck - This is where all the posters go who are just kissing butt, making posts that they feel will give them the best chance to make it to ORG. This is where the true "Pre-ORG-Quality-Threads" are. Think "George Grande" and you are getting warmer.

    3. The ORG - This is where the cool kids hang out. You better be a long time poster, kiss some serious butt, or be really close with a Mod, or don't even bother asking. To keep numbers down, every month, 5 ORG members will be demoted to the Sun Deck. Each member may then write a 500 essay explaining what a privilege it is to be an ORG member. Only 2 essays accepted per month, no exceptions. Except for the exceptions.

    The only way to keep RedsZone the best Reds forum out there, is to protect us from our own crummy posts. This is for our own good, people. I would encourage everyone to read every post in ORG. Study them. Know them. Become one with them. Only then will there even be a chance to hope to even come close to the quality of posters with ORG and the solid gold that spews from their keyboards.
