    One idea would be to have a poster awards similar to what we have had in the past. Something to where we can recognize people for their contributions to this site in numerous ways.
    Agreed. It sounds like fun and it would give us something to talk about in the offseason. If no one else is willing I would be glad to organize it...

    Saveafan has always done it in the past and did a fine job in my opinion.

    Though in the whole scheme of things it doesn't really matter to me.

    Would this be one of the awards?

    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids

    On another forum I post on they have a HOF ceremony. Just one forum strictly for the RZ HOF and 1 thread per season for some arbitrary number of inductees (5 per year?). Each inductee gets some sort of internet style plaque and a small pic of plaque under his/her avatar/post count. Each member posts his/her acceptance speech in the thread and the thread is locked for good.

    10 years of RZ and 10 years of coming to this site faithfully almost daily says this is a special site in more ways than one why not a special yearly celebration of recognition for those who have made it what it is. I know some might think that it's a bit much for a message board but I think it's kind of cool to be able to pay homage to those posters who have made the RZ experience a special one for a lot of people. We are not just a message board here we are a community of people devoted to the Reds, the game of baseball and to a larger extent each other. Time to show some love and have something to look forward to every year besides the Reds.

    The teams have been dismal, but the site has been excellent. A tribute to the fans of Redzsone!

    Hey Boss/GIK, any thoughts on modifying the site's logo to celebrate the 10th anniversary that's coming up next season?

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    Assuming GIK is, too, I'd be more than open to that if someone much more artistically capable than me can come up with something.
