Questions...

1. How many mods do we have now?

2. Is there a difference between mod and super mod?

3 and no. Super Mod and Mod are the same.

Thank you! It is an honor to be working with SCM, LITP and SF to moderate this awesome place! :thumbsup: I want everyone here to know that I am going to give this privilege my all to help keep this board as the very best anywhere on the net! :smile:

Pros - I was shocked and sorry to see that you had stepped down but I hope you continue to post the excellent thoughts and opinions you have in the past. You're a classy, intelligent and energetic young woman with a good head on her shoulders. You did a fantastic job here and don't you ever forget it. :wink02: Please don't be a stranger, OK?

HTG congrats IMHO you will do an awesome job !!! :cheers: :tt02:

LITP???:banging: I don't get that one. I do not usually agree with you but that doesn't mean you can't be good. :cheers: I'm not writing you off, just yet, only time will tell. I'm just trying to remember the last time you had anything positive to say about the STEELERS?

IMHO it seems to me that there are plenty of STEELER faithful that belong to this board that can do the job just as well. It just adds to some of the curious happenings on this board.

Liz as Mod? Excellent! She's fair and knows the game...

LITP? What in the name of all that is holy and good were "you" thinking? It's weird to even have an opposing fan as a regular POSTER at an opposing board...why? Think about it. Why would any Steelers fan set up shop at some other board? They wouldn't.

It'd be different if LITP was really open minded or progressive or understanding, but, for Christ's sake, the very name he uses is an insult to the Steelers, more particularly their fans, stating that we, as Steelers fans are "Living in the past" compared to his Pats who win Super Bowls (Which made a lot more sense BEFORE last year...now his insult loses it's lustre a bit)

It's a mistake to have him as a mod. He should more likely be banned. That's a pretty big disparity, I know, but it is what it is. Then again, it's you guys' board...if you like him and think he contributes in a positive way when he subtly mocks you and the board everyday, Good luck and God bless...

Welcome back.

One of the signs of personal growth is being able to put the past behind you and move on.

I see you aren't quite there yet, which is a genuine shame, this remains an excellent Steelers forum and you missing out by posting here so rarely.

I caught quite a bit of 'stick' for my i.d. on here when the Steelers brought home the big one last year, while the Patriots bowed out earlier than I hoped.

I took it in good spirit, and probably had it coming...after all its only a name and there's no need to get too wound up about it.

No, the fly fell into the sly spiders trap, and the spider ate him.

There are a lot of flies on this board...and only one spider I can see that eats flies.

Hmmmmm...what if there was a spider trap? Something that could catch the bad spider?

It's been an easy ride for you, hasn't it? They let you in...and it's doubled by the fact you were somehow elected to mod status. But the fundamental questions still remain.

Anyway, considering your situation, being elected "Mod" was about as big as it gets, isn't it? Oh, wait. Didn't you just get a car...a really expensive car? Like a $200,000 car? Wouldn't you want to talk about that on the board?

Hmmm. Yes I bought a new car a few months back, I wouldnt quite put it in the $200,000 range though - gets me from a-b.

There hasn't been any problems with Nigel as a mod yet, and it hasn't kept poeple from coming here. Some people may have left and some people may be splitting time between forums now (me included), but I would wager to say the majority of it has nothing to do with LITP.

If people are leaving b/c of Nigel they need to re-examine themselves. There are people on this site that are 10X worse than he is. People don't like Nigle b/c when it comes to talking football, or being a smart-ass most people can't hang with him.

It has nothing to do with "Hanging With Him". Is that suppose to intimidate us?? And should a Mod be none for being a" Smart Ass" ?? Is this what its all about?

As far as his football knowledge, and life knowledge for that matter, I have had his back as much as anybody. How about the Thread about him being a Mod.

All the mods do an exceptional job, and thay should all be congratulated for the job they do. This forum has grown so much, there is way to many people to keep track of. When I was asked to becoem a mod, I turned it down, because I didnt think I could keep up with everything.



See where I had his back? That was just once, there were many more. But just the fact that there was a thread about a Pats fan being a mod here, makes me wonder about the reason behind some of the departures?

I`ll be honest I think I was treated unfairly, no big deal though, its a forum not my job, my family or anything like that. Its not life and death. But I was here almost in the beginning when there was some complaints about racist, or sexual preference comments, and a stop was put it. I thought that was the end of it, now that the site has grown ,there is more little personal attacks i guess. I had to take a couple month hiatus from the site and never noticed the thread about these attacks. i called someone a puke. Wrong? Yes according to the rules. I didnt realize that this was to be considered a personal attack, my fault! But I know back in the day Mike or Matt would have PM`d me and said" Hey buddy you no longer allowed to call someone names" and " if youdo it again you`ll get an infraction, withe the possibility of being banned" My response would have been 'Sorry, I didnt know"
I didnt have time when I came back to read over every thread.

Perhaps, but I joined here last may and there was alot more traffic then there is now. I have also noticed that some of the old orginals are no longer here. But to say is that litps fault nobody could predict that. There could be several other contributing factors. Like new memebers comming to the board that some old posters may not have cared for. Or people found lives outside of the board. I myself was away from the board for about three months while dealing with personal issues as well as a job transfer. I dont think naming a patriot fan would clear members out of here imo.

You are exactly right I joined in February of last year and dont have nearly as many posts as you. I just dont have the time.

I too dont htink that having litp should have anything to do with people leaving. I think it is a testament to this board having someone who is not a steeler fan as a mod. it speaks highly of its commitment to maintaining its integrity and while people dont have to agree with his opinions or choice of team to root for. Imo it is a good thing to have another point of view on things as long as it is clean and doesnt involve personal attacks on other members.

One difference of last years traffic compared to this years traffic is this. Last year we won the superbowl in feb. then by the time all the excitement was over the draft was going on, then bens accident, then the preseason started. This year we do have to cowher specualtion to hold onto.

Cleve, I wasn't calling you out, and I certainlly wasn't trying to intimidate anyone. This is the internet, if anyone gets intimidated by any words other than, "I know where you live and I am going to kill you" then there are problems.

I know you have had LITP's back, several people have, things have actually been running fairly smoothly until someone had to stir up a hornets nest.

Hell, if I recall I think I had your back in a roundabout way over your puke comment. I think its pretty asinine for you to get shit about that, especially with some of the things I have said and not gotten dinged for. Anyways, I agree with the guy a few posts above me, that one of the main reasons we are losing "posters" is that the Steelers haven't been in contention since November pretty much.

Anyways, I have asked to become a Mod, and the more I post the less I think I would want the job. What the hell is ...................... anyways?

Yup...'tis all MY fault that Cleve (one of the original posters here) was pretty much run off before I even came back and posted a couple little jabs.

So, again, I see that nothing has changed. The bottom line is there should always be a few posters from other teams on this board (or any other board, for that matter), but you NEVER let the inmates get the keys to the asylum. Even when (well, Hell, especially when) they seem on their best behaviour.

The internet is a big place. If one forum doesn't suit you, there is always another. This one seems to suit those who hang out here. I don't know why you need to bend it to your expectations.

The only person it needs to matter to is the one who is paying the bills for the software and bandwidth. If I hated it as much as you seem to, I wouldn't waste my time poking at it with a stick, unless I had some other motive. I mean, why stir up people who seem to be satisfied? Why not just start another site that fits your vision? This group works well as it is.

Unless, again, you have other motives.

Frankly I think more people would leave if LITP was bounced as a mod. In my world it's possible to understand color loyalties (B&G, RWB) as minor things when judging people; I try to judge them by the ways they manifest themselves in their communications.
