I have an idea for the forum. It's obvious it's gonna be almost impossible to police every thread. Make the whole forum protected. Only BOD members can post. Tds can send tourney info in and have it posted and later the results or any other info needed. Completely cut out all the garbage that goes on here. It really gets old seeing the dame crap over and over again. Just my 2 haha.

I guess we all have it in for Zinger too now. *rolleyes*


For the record I pushed to make the first ban 45 days.

Yep. Can't believe that Terry got banned for beng a nice guy. Apparently nice guys finish last in the good ole Southern Nationals. Since ScottyD was spot on, MAYBE WE SHOULD MAKE HIM A BOD MEMBER.

HAVING A GREAT F'N TIME EVERYDAY
My F'N head hurts after this. Can I get a F'N aspirin?

Go back and read again. He was "warned".

True that Justin, I still feel as though ScottyD is a significantly bigger threat(violations) than Terry on any given day.
Re: BoD Minutes 2/2/11
February 03, 2011 07:49AM
Maybe so... but he essentially tip toed around the guidelines, much like many of you guys are doing day in and day out here.

Zinger called me up and knew he was going to get a warning for what he posted. He expressed some concerns about our process and I took them in but in the end he clearly violated a guideline and a warning had to be sent out.

I am 100% certain that Zinger will show restraint and not get himself banned. He may never get another warning again. These are the growing pains that we will have to go through.

It isn't much different than the board setting the first ban at 90 days and the people saying that was too long so we changed it to 30 days. We made a mistake and corrected our action. I'm pretty sure I'd rather a single PM and post on the subject vs the backlash that we got on here over our mistake. But that is life. We take what we get and make the best out of it.

As far as conduct and character representation, I agree with you, but the BoD voted that he didn't actually violate any guidelines. Most of his comments are insulting and unnecessary, but we don't have any guidelines for that.

Thanks for the response. And, by the way, thanks for reducing the length of banishment. It seems much more appropriate now.

Re: BoD Minutes 2/2/11

Scotty, our vote doesn't give you the green light to continue on the path you are on. We certainly don't condone your behavior and if you can't figure out a less confrontational way to express yourself I imagine we will have to revisit this topic shortly.

The board does reserve the right to warn/ban on a case by case basis, regardless of the guidelines. Example would be Victor who is perm banned here for very much the same kind of action (granted a bit more over the top).

We appreciate the fact that somebody is recognizing that we're doing our best to try and meet the requests of the players. To my knowledge, we haven't instituted anything that hasn't been requested by players. Granted, our initial response and action to what players request may be problematic to some, we're going to continue to work to set it right.

And sadly we probably spent about 75% of the meeting on this junk.

Our hopes were that this would be the last time we would have to focus so much energy on it.

Does this mean ya'll are reducing Mikey's ban or does this go in affect for the next person ban?

Of course it wouldn't only effect new bans.

Kernan has another 15 days. Then he will be back on probation for 3 months and if he violates a guideline during that period his next ban will be for 90 days. Make sure that is well understood.

Why even have that statement in the answer? I don't understand why you are on a crusade to make smart rearend comments to me?!?!?!

How are we to know what ya'll decided to do or how ya'll are going to handle the new guidelines? No where are they explained how the changes will be put in affect.

Please answer the question without treating the people on here like a 5 year old child.

Keith... I have NO clue how you got that out of my response. I was simply saying that of course we would be retroactive with our decision. No condenscenion what so ever.

Some times you should just call a brotha if you think he is coming off incorrectly to you. I would have gladly corrected my statement if you would have called and after I explained myself you still felt it didn't sound right the way I typed it.

How many conversations have we had Keith... though we don't 100% agree, we do agree on most and we have never had, as far as I know, a respect issue between the two of us. quite the contrare we have always discussed our differences like gentlemen. Why would now be any different?

Like Dznutz and Mike S. I thank the BOD for reducing the length of the initial ban for violating forum guidelines. Thanks to all of you guys (and gal).
