Hey all...there are two new mods here, myself and Tony Hipchest.

Feel free to let us know about any problems you have (within reason) and we'll do our best to take care of it quickly.

I think I can speak for both of us when I say that we enjoy a relaxed and friendly environment, but won't put up with spammers and incessant trolls. Feel free to bring to our attention though anything that you find extremely out of line, as we may not see every single thing that is posted.

If you have any input, suggestions or concerns, feel free to post them here for discussion or PM either one of us.

Please keep the COC guidlines in mind when posting, we're not ultra uptight or restrictive, but things will not be allowed to get out of hand either.

Thanks and hope we can all have some fun! :drink:

my modship is tenative at best until i ATLEAST speak with pete74. my offer to help was with him in mind, and i told the board admin i will wait for his input and recommendation before anything is "official".

until then i got the blue tags.

SCM and i half heartedly joked around about tossing our hats in the ring a while back when this board was in disarray, and it really wasnt that bad of an idea then, so it cant be too horrible now.

i think she will be an incredibly fair and balance mod.

as for me, i like to talk shit.

i kinda take pleasure in being a dick.

but i really like talking steelers, and believe fairness and balance makes for the best atmosphere, so i expect myself (and even others) to try to lead by example.

you'll learn as you go. if you place a thread or post into moderation it will dissapear to all members but be visable to only us. the infraction system will ban members after a certain amount of posts, i use that for spammers. regular members get a warning unless they do something very wrong. you'll notice we get at least 1 spammer everyday

Yeah...I perma banned two members today for spamming. One that was hiding the spam in their posts and one that had a spam link in their sig.

Do you think Matthew would get upset if I unbanned a couple of people myself? The one I had in mind specifically right now was permanently banned by CantStop85 and no reason was given, but he's a really cool guy. Posts over at SU only at the moment, but I'd really like to have him back over here.

Emotions ran high, and a lot of people said and posted things they normally wouldn't have. Unbanning them all is a great idea.

I'd start with that Preacher guy. I'm going out on a limb, but I'm pretty sure he got the boot. :chuckle:

not necessarilly. most who got banned did so on their own accord. others who got banned and werent trying to commit board suicide by mod, have already made an appeal and have been reinstated.

preacher has been back and told he was allowed to post almost 2 months ago. he said his piece and is now where he feels most comfortable.

We should make a game of it. Who do you think got banned??

That way nobody will slip thru the cracks! :chuckle:

It's time to unban them all .....if you know where to look, you can easilly see the majority of those who got banned.

hardly anybody has "slipped through the cracks".

pete has done a damn good job giving back the membership to those who want it.

plus the majority of the membership who no longer posts here are still members and many are active who check in on a daily basis.

as a message board we provide a product and a service.

doing what we can do to ensure this place is as informative and entertaining as possible, is all it will take to address those you speak of.

It helps that you don't see it unless you are logged in, which will help keep from people signing up.

I was just browsing through this thread earlier today (it's been a while since I've seen it). And I stumbled across the Salma Hayek posts. And now you mention Salma Hayek again out of nowhere. That's freaky. I fully expect birds to start falling out of the sky or something. :wink02:

I'm hoping to get it taken care of soon. Yes, I forgot a little bit...but Jon hasn't had much time anyhow. Between a full time and part time job, dealing with his band and shows, and the holidays, he just hasn't had a lot of extra time. Everything is calming down a little bit, so hopefully I can have him at least take care of that soon. All the other extra stuff will probably have to wait. My ideas just had bad timing.

the date needs changed for the "war room" , forum.

i see several draft thread discussions starting in the steelers forum , is this now
acceptable since there isn't much other news ?

tony hipchest
02-27-2011, 08:39 PM
thanks for the heads up. several sticky threads also needed to be dealt with. unfortunately, i cant see where us mods have the power to change forum titles or move them around. (nfl draft and war room should be right next to eachoither).

acceptable? we'll see where it goes. i think some leniency is in order at the mods discretion.

for example a topic saying "steelers look to trading up for julio jones as ward's replacement" = ok.

a topic saying "we should draft julio jones because he dated my sister and i think he is a cool guy" = bad

i think the draft forums are appropriately placed... war room = steeler draft talk ....NFL draft = general nfl draft talk...:noidea:

I'm trying to figure out how to change the title on my own...but I'm computarded. I've been trying to find a good day to have Jon help me update a bunch of stuff (still), but one or both of us have been pretty busy either at the same time or alternating times, so it just hasn't worked out yet. I'm lucky to get a 15 minute conversation with him most days lol. Every time I think we're going to have a few hours or so to spend on it, something or other comes up...so that's why I haven't said anything about it lately. Hopefully soon though.

I think some general articles about the draft are ok in the Steelers section (i.e. and article about why the Steelers prefer to use the draft over free agency to find players would stay in the main section whereas an article about looking at CB's early would be moved), partly because there isn't much other news and partly because they're not mock drafts and such....but everything else should go in the War Room or NFL draft section. I'll check to see if anything needs moved...I've been slacking the past week or so lol.
