I looked today, had you restricted yourself to insulting me, I would again have left it to other staff members to decide what to do with it. But you didn't. So I did my job. I gave you the infraction and removed the offending text. Live with it.

And you want to know something? We actually do have special rules for you, because if we dealt with you per the ToS we would have permabanned you years ago. But you're part of the community so we always let you back no matter how many times we suspend you. Not that I expect you to understand what I'm saying. (And the irony of your crusade is what makes the whole thing so funny.)
My crusade? Asking questions and making a thread to bounce ideas on how to recruit members is now R-Stars crusade?

You really do like to use word play to dodge things don't you EH. No, the site hasn't lost a ton of membership, and is basically hanging on by a thread. And no one has issues with how the site is currently being run. No. Its me. Probably something to do about me wanting to rule the interwebz or whatever line you have this week.


Get over yourself. There's issues with the site. You yourself are a root cause of said issue according to a large number of posters. I'd like that to be discussed, but I'm expecting a "Look at that! R-Star thinks everythings about him!" or "King of the interwebz!" or "He's drunk again!"


Are you so scared of reality that you refuse to talk about it?

And could we have an honest talk about how some admins are viewed publicly and how to any new user its probably a huge turnoff for the site?



Thank you for fielding questions Basel. Its what the original intent is. And to clarify to Ron, the original post that was deleted by EH said nothing outside of the fact I think this place is run with an iron fist at times. EH just over stepped his bounds and deleted a post, then made up a story since there was no way to prove, disprove that the post said afterward.

I think this is the meat of the issue. We need to institute a plan to fix this problem. Everything else is white noise to me. I'm a solution-oriented person. I don't care to point out anybody else's short-comings.

How do we make this happen?

I don't know what we're planning on doing moving forward. I'm open to hearing all of your ideas and going from there.

I think one big thing we need to utilize is Twitter. We have a BBF Twitter account but it hardly ever gets used. Nobody has the time to run it by themselves although we've had people try. Twitted is huge and could potentially benefit us. We just need to be consistent with it.

We generally don't like talking about staff in public. It's not a good look for the boards. Nobody wants to come to BBF and see regular members and admins arguing. PM me your thoughts on the admins and I'll go from there (that goes for any of you - contact me whenever you like). I'm not going to discuss management issues in public. Sorry.

Re: Forum Ideas

I don't understand twitter well enough to be the guy. How are people going to use it? I mean if its for basketball related news, I'd assume most people just follow ESPN or one of the writers.

As far as the other explanation, fair enough and understandable. It seems you are aware there are actual issues in that area though, which is good.

Re: Forum Ideas

Who on here isn't on Twitter?

Once you figure out how to use it, it pretty much replaces the need for having message boards.

Re: Forum Ideas

I actually don't use Twitter, never have.

That being said, since we don't have any true insider information, we could pose a question once a week or something like that. Something relevant that can generate a discussion, start it as a thread on the board and then post the question/link on Twitter. Some will just comment to the question, but some will follow the link and maybe want to have a real discussion that doesn't have a character limit on it.

Nah, 140 characters is no where near enough to mount a decent argument.

For most stuff, it does. Especially for observations during basketball games that people post here. You could easily just tweet that, and then people would reply to it, and it would all show up on Twitter. To me, that's preferable over a 50 page message board thread.

I never watch games live. I would hate to get updates that ruin the outcome for me. Sounds awful.
