"RedsZone: A Decade Under the Influence"
". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008
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.

Holy crap ...... is it really 10 years?
"Whatever you choose, however many roads you travel, I hope that you choose not to be a lady. I hope you will find some way to break the rules and make a little trouble out there. And I also hope that you will choose to make some of that trouble on behalf of women." - Nora Ephron
I kinda wish they titled it: Decade of Dominance.
But Im cool with Excellence.
The teams have been dismal, but the site has been excellent. A tribute to the fans of Redzsone!
Talent is God Given: be humble.
Fame is man given: be thankful.
Conceit is self given: be careful.
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.
