    RedsZone Blogs Forum

    Have you guys ever thought of this? Creating a blog forum where a user can share their own opinions, baseball or not, without anyone interrupting? I have seen several other sites do this and it seems to work out well.

    Just a suggestion

    Prior to Redszone or in the early years of this site, it was set up like that. There are a lot of great bloggers on board here too. Not sure if they could link something with this software but they were good reads.

    Awesome find, wolfboy! I'd never known what the original RZ looked like. I'm sure that'll bring back some memories for those who were there then.

    That actually sounds like an interesting idea.

    Man, that's a sharp looking site - especially since it was created using 2000 technology!

    One of the best sports blogs I read for UK basketball and football information is Kentucky Sports Radio.

    A lot of the information there is informative, but it also has a comedic side to it as well. The idea is to present the material in an interesting manner, whether it be using humor or something that is of actual substance.

    I'd like to see something like this get started, and I think we have people who post here that could get it off the ground.

    I was just thinking there are MANY great baseball minds on this site, and it would be cool for those people to illustrate their ideas. I think there would be many awesome blogs here if RedZone did something like this.

    I have no problem with that if you have enough volunteers and want to lead the effort. I'll help with as much as I possibly can.

    Honesty, all you really have to do is make another forum called "RedsZone Blogs" and put it under the miscellaneous section.

    Just make the rules clear (sticky at the top), that all the forums rules apply, but that no one is allowed to comment on it. It would be the posters own little world (thread).

    OK, I have some ideas that can make that forum even more geared towards its intended purposes. I'll get around to handling that ASAP.

    Thanks, Boss. I'd be more than happy to contribute if/when it gets up and running.

    I get all nostalgic paging through the different old school redszone looks.
