Well I thought this decision could be put off...but the board has grown so quickly that I need to add three moderators.

Any nominees?

I was thinking of KCWolfman (Russ) and Luz...
any objections or other suggestions?<P>

Kyle, Very good choices. I am convinced that they would be fair and consistant.

Mosbonian
08-21-2000, 06:05 PM
Kyle - Fine candidates.

May I be their agent to negotiate an equitable contract on their behalf?

Luz/Russ - my take is only 30%. Think about it.

I don't mind helping, Kyle. I monitor the board quite often but I don't know what the temperature would be.... I think I'm well liked and know that I'm fair. If I can't help in the moderator arena, I'll volunteer elsewhere (FWIW, I'm a 'puter geek too and live down 290 from you)....

BroncoFan
08-21-2000, 06:16 PM
Also, Luz & Russ are fine. No objection here....

AustinChief
08-21-2000, 06:19 PM
Alright unless I get any MAJOR objections... LUZ
KCWolfman(Russ)
KPhobia

...will be our new moderators.

I'll give this thread until tomorrow than make the decision.

ChiTown,

I may need some assistance negotiating an equitable rate. First things first though. Your take is 8%. 8% of nothing is still nothing. Congratulations on your new career. http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/wink.gif

Quick question. Why do I have to hit refresh before I click on a topic to have the latest replys? When I click on a topic, it takes me to the last topic in my brouser. Any suggestions?
Am I questioning this correctly?

Cool, thanks.

AustinChief

It should be fixed now. Tell me if you start to see it again.

Thanks,

It just happened when I clicked on this thread. The first time i saw my "cool, thanks." reply..then i used my back arrow and clicked again and your reply was there.

Austin Chief,

Excellent choices all.

If we continue to grow at this pace we may need a late night moderator as well. Suggest one from the Pacific time zone when the time comes.

Good idea.

How many fans do we have in Australia?
They would have the PERFECT time overlap.

Anyone, anyone?

BroncoFan
08-21-2000, 07:12 PM
Good point, Jim. Anybody in mind? Raider & Seahawk fans need not apply. http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/biggrin.gif I know Luz posts frequently in the evening, at least moreso than myself. Russ is mostly a day poster & early morning.... I spend a lot of weekend time here, especially during the regular season.

Proctor would have been a nice choice in Korea but he's gone now... I know we have a lot of Cali fans.

Readers Digest Version:

The BBA decided that she needed to practice censorship and started deleting all Political threads with the simple words:

"No Political threads"....no explanation, no request to take our discussions elsewhere..just a simple cleaning of the board without so much as an explanation(until today, once the BB started looking deserted)

Kilgore-

Well I'm sure whoever pays for those banner ads at the top of the page appreciates that.

Thanks, I could tell it was something to do with politics.

AustinChief
08-21-2000, 08:22 PM
Michael - Long story short....

A political discussion ensued in several threads. Words were tossed, gauntlets thrown and the liberals were limping off the field of honor faster than confederate families in Atlanta when Sherman came to town.

The BB killed ALL the political posts, even those of us that were not engaged in the throws of the battle. When we asked why, we were told "No Political Discussions", nothing else. Many people asked for an explanation and none was given.

Of course Denise took the advesarial position from the rest of us, defending their actions all the while supposing what their motives were with no basis in fact.

For me that was the last straw. For anyone to defend the actions of the BBA with no basis as to what they did ruined any support we had to reach a reasonable resolve.


And from there, Kyle invented here, Chiefsplanet.com

FWIW-

Someone may want to tell them that NFL films is producing a 1 or 2 hour piece comparing politics to the NFL. It will run right before the election.

Just hanging around enjoying the new digs. I think I'm going to enjoy this here place a lot. Beats the heck out of the ugly purple BB I thought I was going to be forced to have to read to get any decent football talk.

God knows you can't get that on the Sporting News BB, CBS BBs, NFL.com BB, ESPN.com BB...

Hey guys.

The guy who created this said something about this being a short term solution and that he might write one of his own, or am I delusional?

I really miss having the reply be on the same page as the thread, that could make things painful.

Its a brave, new world, Morph. I guess we'll get used to it.

Morphius,

Someone brought this up earlier. I'm looking at hacking these scripts to add that feature. It shouldn't be too hard. I'll keep everybody posted.

Thanks for the input...any and all suggestions are appreciated.

Mystery Dude,

(I've been chasing you around a few topics to give you this reply...hold still!)

Your email has to be unique...so I can delete the Mystery Dude profile and let you re-register.

Cool?

Austin - Cool! I just wanted to make sure, I have been gone on a 4 day weekend and am way to far behind to play catch up, still watching Sat's game.

The only other thing I would really like to see is the Subject and Post of the original thread on the page you go into, I have always liked that on the other. That one might be a little harder, but not impossible.

Can't believe I'm a lurker...

I sure hope these elected moderators don't fly the flag of the hammer and sickle. Although KPhobia may break out his stars and bars flag now and then, I guess I'll give him a thumbs up. http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif

Austin, if you need a volunteer to moderate the night shift I would be happy to help out. I live out West and always stay up pretty late (usually past 1am). I have no clue what "standards" you'd like to hold your "planet" to but I'd be happy to help.

Az,

Very early on in this thread I suggested that Kyle might want to consider a late shift moderator. When you stepped forward, I just thought it would be a good idea to give you an endorsement.

Well I have to get up early so off to bed. It has been a great experience, looking forward to many more.

Thanks again AustinChief, get some sleep you deserve it and probably need it. http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/wink.gif
