    Re: New nominees to the ORG

    I was accepted into the ORG recently (thanks to all for that); but as luck would have it, I recently also have developed computer issues -- so I have been unable to post as much as I would like. Hopefully my sick computer gets well soon.

    I'm not exactly sure what you're getting at. I just mean that making quality posts, regardless of how few, gives you a better chance of getting elected to tORG as opposed to making a large quantity of posts lacking substance. That's only my opinion, of course.

    Maybe I was just confused on which forum you were talking about.

    Re: New nominees to the ORG

    I just post when I see something interesting or have an opinion on and that pretty much sums it up.
    However one thing about this voting process. It seems the ORG wants to make it similar to the Hall-Of-Fame voting. Well...when the HOF results are announced, they show who got what % of votes.

    My propostion would be to not just "say" who wins but show the results of voting. This would show Sundeckers who desire to be in the ORG , how much improvement they have to do to get there.
    Only a suggestion but one that I think seems fair.

    Just my opinion, but I don't think publicly advertising when someone fails to get in is such a good idea.

    All users who were voted in received at least 70% of no less than 50 total ORG member votes (or a minimum of 35 "Yes" votes).

    I've pretty much figured out that if you post a lot, every now and then you'll make a post that some don't see eye to eye with and that will keep you in the Sun Deck for eternity. Or until the Reds win the series and we all get grandfathered in as part of the celebration.
    I have to say that I agree.Many of the people gaining access to the ORG don't seem to be heavy contributors in the Sundeck.There are a few that I have never even seen post.

    They can take whoever they want though.I'm ok with sticking around here.

    Or, you could just not care. I don't.

    Re: New nominees to the ORG

    I don't understand the complaints, given that recently the ORG has been voting in members much more leniently than before. I think that I am a good example. I never make the giant posts, but everything that I say in the ORG is something that I firmly believe in, and attempt to backup, when possible, with statistics. I always try to be nice, and I understand where you are coming from. I remember being voted down a couple times, but I eventually got in.

    From what I have seen, everyone on the ORG gets a chance to input their opinions on each nominee. Some may fall through the cracks, though most have earned it.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    I don't remember the exact conversation in the discussion thread for your vote but I think you mostly got in because ORG members thought you were an extreme professional folk dancer which at the time of the vote seemed pretty rad...

    It was either that or the asterisks....

    Yeah it seemed like a good idea at the time.... :

    Yeah, that or it was the constant use of "..." at the end of each post...

    I'll make sure my last post here at RZ ends with a simple period...
