    Then maybe you shouldn't be a mod or have more mods.

    Or maybe we could just go on a banning spree?
    I hit them as hard as I could on the mouth right from the start of the game so they were thinking this was going to be a long day. Sooner or later one of us had to quit. And it wasn't going to be me.

    The site would be closed down for a few days then if you did that.

    I like this site because there is a lot of posters who actually seem to know a lot about football.

    I also like this site because you don't need to be a football nut to be an everyday member of this site.

    The hockey forum on this site is livlier than many other hockey specific forums, the v-bookie forum is a wrinkle that does add a little something to the site.

    The "other sports" forum is also pretty lively as it actually covers other sports than the big two of hockey & football.

    The only issues I have with the forum, I believe you'll find at every other forum, a) when the home team struggles the forum tends to get overly umm...negative almost seems to light of a word & b) the "inside jokes" tend to go a little far

    All in all though, I commend the mods on doing a good job and hope this thread doesn't scare anybody away because all of us together make a unique dysfunctional family

    Can't say enough good things about this site. Enjoy going on it every day. The info. about training camp and post game comments is a million times better than that reported by any of the media outlets. Most of the posters here have a really good knowledge of football ,plus a passion for the EE that comes across in their comments. It's good to get different views and respect the opinions of others. ...Love the humor section...Mrs. asks me every day " did PIZMO post a new joke'.

    I think the first step would be to identify the audience you are trying to target.

    Then you structure the environment to cater to that audience.

    If you are happy with the people you have here now, and want to attract more of the same, then nothing has to change.

    If you want to lure some of the old posters back and bring in more diversity then you have to change.

    Re: Site content Poll

    I for one love the site. I have no issues. If someone says something I don't like, I just roll my eyes, continue reading and chalk it up to the guys or gals blowing off steam in their own unique way. I just skip the parts I don't like and continue on.
    Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and sometimes we'll like it and sometimes we won't . It's human nature. So don't take offense, just move on to another thread or something.
    JMOH. But I really don't see the need to get bent out of shape about things. It's an internet forum., with many, many different personalities, so of course their will be head butting or nonsense. Meh it happens.
    I for one will continue to be on the site no matter what things are said here. Just wish it was more often

    Esksfans has made adjustments in the past with a little push from the media on *somebody's miscellaneous* avy. Sites adjust generally on their own, finding that the majority of posters who contribute will be the direction of the site. Once that majority has run its course the next in line seem to step up and it is at this point that Esksfans seems to be at. Once the mods get to a point where they feel things are becoming more of a task to run, more rules are applied.

    I see that Angelus has laid out his wishes, but rather than apply them, he is asking for input, well done. But utilmately, these types of discussion forums may be looked at as more of a media outlet and go more main stream. If that is the intention of Angelus then the site has to be adjusted from the sheep dip that goes on, avy's toned down and some posters will enjoy it more, yet others current ones may find an alternative.

    You are never going to please all the people, as can easily be seen from your own mods being split on this. So the bottom line is where do you want to go as a site, and that answer will dictate where you start drawing lines.

    If this site stopped being edgy and turned more 13th man type, I wouldn't bother posting. Some may see that as a plus.

    If I want news, I look at a news site. If I wanna have fun, I come here.

    No, it has more to do with the stupid Staples warranty guys finally getting off their sorry asses and finishing my laptop.

    Re: Site content Poll

    are you guys referring to the threads that go on for 10 pages, and only involve 3 or 4 people, and nobody reads the rest because it's just one big pissing match that usually involves morals and religion, and everyone keeps talking and repeating how they feel on the issue, thinking that somehow it will convince everyone that they are right, yet no one budges from what they believe and it usually just ends up with everyone not liking eachother?

    those ones?

    Not EVERYONE not liking each other. Just the 3 or 4 people who participated who didn't like each other to begin with.

    Oh, wait...I'm thinking of the threads about DM's coaching.
