Thread: To the Board Administrators

  1. #1

    To the Board Administrators

    I think that it would make for much more friendlier usage of this board if you folks could find a way to divide some of the threads that
    have have lengthened out to over 100+ pages.

    It is difficult, at least for me, on these long, long threads to find specific topics and reply to them. If the administration could go through these long threads and
    break them down into specific topics the board may get more posts with deeper thoughts.

    The Mods are unpaid and don't have time for this kind of work. If you want to talk about a topic that you can't readily find, just make your own post.

    Ah, come on! You didn't like...

    "Instead of building newer and larger weapons of mass destruction, I think mankind should try to get more use out of the ones we have"

    "I think the mistake a lot of us make is thinking the state-appointed shrink is our friend"

    "If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them down? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason."

    "One thing a computer can do that most humans can't is be sealed up in a cardboard box and sit in a warehouse"

    "If I had a mine shaft, I don't think I would just abandon it. There's got to be a better way."

    "Broken promises don't upset me. I just think, why did they believe me?"

    "When I found the skull in the woods, the first thing I did was call the police. But then I got curious about it. I picked it up, and started wondering who this person was, and why he had deer horns."

    "The people in the village were real poor, so none of the children had any toys. But this one little boy had gotten an old enema bag and filled it with rocks, and he would go around and whap the other children across the face with it. Man, I think my heart almost broke. Later the boy came up and offered to give me the toy. This was too much! I reached out my hand, but then he ran away. I chased him down and took the enema bag. He cried a little, but that's the way of these people."

    "Laurie got offended that I used the word "puke." But to me, that's what her dinner tasted like."

    We barely have board administrators, and regardless, this has always been my favorite place to post. This place has always policed its own well.

    There would honestly be almost no way to accurately do this and would take an absurd amount of work to break up over 1000s of posts in some threads, into separate threads. If there is anything specific you want to talk about, feel free to make a new thread, or discuss it any of the existing ones. Attempting to do this just isn't worth the time and effort.

    It's true, I'm very insubstantial.

    At least during the offseason. I just don't get as invested in discussions about contracts and minor leaguers as I do in the regular-season happenings. But I assure you I log on every day and check up on things. Deleting spam threads, mostly. Also, now that I am an admin and not just a mod, I am able to manually approve each new user, which is why you guys might have noticed a downtick in the amount of "free video game gold" and other advertising topics.

    But yes, you guys do generally do a good job of policing yourselves. I know some of you don't get along, but I'm not going to start kicking people off the site for being mean to each other, unless it gets ridiculous. Everything runs smoothly without me and JB micromanaging everything. Splitting threads would just add more clutter and push active discussions into the second and third pages of every sub-board.
