    I don't read it everyday, but rather I'll check up/check in on more promising posters that have separated themselves from the overall noise that can be the SunDeck (at times).
    How do you find that the former ORG members are handling things?
    Thank goodness for baseball.

    Some have adjusted well, and are now ORG members.

    Others, not so much.

    It seems that the former ORG members that took the split personally haven't adjusted well. But that's a very broad statement, so take it for what its worth.

    Well I just kind of found it funny that last week I had to go to an Orioles board to interact with an ORG member about baseball. Sad.

    Odd you should mention it: I hadn't read Sundeck in quite a while, then just came back to it a week or so ago and was impressed. I'm not sure that an outsider would be able to tell one board from the other in a blind taste test.

    I've debated whether to respond to this since I read it, so I'm just going to make a short comment.

    I probably fall into this category, but speaking for myself only, I did not take it personally nor have I felt the need to "adjust" in order to get into ORG. I simply chose not to post as much or as in depth as I used to because of the constant feeling like I was in an audition. I came here simply to interact with Reds fans in the best environment possible, not to feel like I need to be a certain way in order to get accepted. Also, I have had a lot of personal problems in my life recently and they made my time here a much lower priority. If I am not ORG material, then so be it, I'm fine with it.

    Please know that I do not mean my feelings as a way of criticism towards the forum or it's design. When the change was made, there was a consensus that a change needed to be made in ORG and I did not agree with that. Now, I know I was totally wrong because I find 95% of my time now spent at RedsZone is now lurking and reading ORG. The quality of discussion that goes on there is just fantastic and something that I never knew could exist in an internet messageboard, and the creators, moderators, and the members of ORG deserve a lot of credit for making it what it is today.

    Okay, maybe it wasn't short but I said what I wanted to.

    Go Reds!!!

    Re: ORG members

    I read it once every couple of weeks. And even then, I find the content to be either totally stultifying or merely a doppelganger of the discussion being held on ORG.

    I see no reason to go there unless a thread title catches my eye.

    Re: ORG members

    I check it out occasionally to see if anyone in the Sun Deck is talking about me. When I find that they aren't talking about me, I get very sad.

    I am a member of the Sundeck and i don't even read it. It seems to me that I get a much more satisfying read on the ORG.

    That thread makes my head hurt too. Honestly, I feel really bad that I don't read Sun Deck as much as I should - especially since I'm a mod - but it's not necessarily the content that pains me, it's the tone. And a lot of it is repetitive to ORG but that's to be expected.

    Take heart. They are talking about you-they're just doing so via code. Any post on the Sundeck containing these words in combination- the, you, was, Reds-is in actuality specifically about you. As always, beware of men in black....

    You mean let the cool kids and the uncool kids interact together? What kind of hippie idea is that?

    Yeah, I went to grade school in a school that had rooms that were called "pods"--no walls separating the individual grade levels. Hippie as hell.

    There's no fighting city hall on this one; the mods' job was made easier, so basically, that was that. When it's framed that way, I have less of a problem with it philosophically. But then, who cares what I think? Right?

    High School for me... and the buildings were shaped like Pizza Hut.

    I like Hippies.. to a point.

    I volunteer anyone who wants one board to be a moderator, it should be easy right?
