    How many people in the front office even frequent these boards? I also wasnt being indignant. Yeah sarcastic, but definitely not indignant. And yes I do realize it it is now a dead horse.
    Enough of them frequent the boards to know that when something goes really wrong and their phones start ringing, it's a big hassle. Trust me, people have called the front office over these boards, and way more than once. From what I've been told, most of those calls were from a time when there was a forum that allowed any conversation. Blame the people who were here before you(and me), because they're the ones who ruined the chances of that kind of forum making a comeback.

      I unfortunately have to agree with DH and the opinion of the front office. Statements often get misinterpreted on a frequent basis that turn into large arguments and become grudges over months because of silly egos. Not saying anyone in this thread would be suspect at that but just browsing around in TAGF, one could see what I'm driving at. This MB simply isn't mature enough for an Off-Topic section and it would require heavy moderation.

        The swag thread is considered off-topic correct? Wonder why no one posts immature **** on there......

            If it's such a problem for you, why not go to another board? Problem solved

            You have a pinned thread in Entertainment. If thats not good enough, then I suggest you move along.

                Go to another board? Is that the job of a moderator, to tell other posters here to go to another board?


                It's okay, infract me for voicing a non-hostile opinion.

                  From what I've observed, most of the posters in that particular thread are a close-knit group of friends and pretty mature. Now mix in immaturity and huge egos and you got yourself one moderation nightmare and flame war fest to handle on a daily basis. It's a risk-reward thing from the moderators' point of view and I'd have to say the reward isn't worth the risk.

                    Exactly. How is anyone else supposed to feel going into a thread like that? It's like a clique.

                      I'm stating the obvious. It's common sense to understand that if you aren't happy in a place, then go to another place. It has nothing to do with being a moderator. Calm down, guy.

                          I'm sure as long as you don't make a jerk out of yourself, it wouldn't be too bad. Guys like Morehead and MattMeyer are pretty nice. Though I think having the Lounge Thread was the correct middle ground to go with. I can't tell you how many times I've had my personal opinion on certain subjects misinterpreted here and then turned into fact. Could you imagine that with more serious subjects? If you have any moderation experience, it's just not worth the hassle when dealing with sports fans.

                            I'm calm actually. Just don't feel the "feel good" aura coming out of a moderator like you.

                            Ill speak to roa about situations like this. At least he answers people nicely.

                            • Lets not start another big deal. We are just visitors here and I suppose people could start their OWN boards if they dont wanna come here. I will just live with that decision cause it is not that big of a deal, it was just an idea. BTW Moke, Die-Hard is a very good mod. And no, I am not kissing butt, he helps when there is a problem pretty much at a lightspeed pace. Same with RO and Mod C to name a few.

                              • With that said.......What ever happened to the NYG Chatroom? That was such a good place to go during gameday.
