Hey Folks,
It's only been a few days of moderating and it seems like a few years. I really didn't fully understand the issues that are here. A few of my pet peeves are infighting and people not taking accountability for their actions. To that end I will NOT tolerate instigating fights or personal attacks. If you want to criticize someone, including myself, do so in an adult manner and it will stay up and unlocked. Don't do it in adult manner and you might be stuck with what you said, without the edit function. I am also seriously entertaining doing away with the other board. I have spoken to several folks who's opinions I respect. (and some I barely do ) and have some further thoughts. I want feedback on the following scenario. Have this 1 board, and it's front page segmented (maybe referred to as hyperthreading). The potential segments could be:

a. Pre-WWII Baseball cards
b. Post-WWII Baseball cards - 1980's
c. Memorabelia
d. Photography
e. everything else

Each segment could have it's own B/S/T thread.
I know I said I would not try to change too much too fast but if we can make it better, and the collective group agrees, why not? Your thoughts please....and sorry for the issues....One other thing. There was some very advanced programming in the old B/S/T thread that can not be duplicated by myself or Brian McQueen so regardless of anything else some changes can not be avoided.......regards all.......your collecting buddy...

and enjoy other collector finds and learn some information. What you decide is fine with me. It would be nice to have only one board but if things get beyond what I want to read then I'll just leave - no harm no foul. I agree that some things are taken too far and people begin to attack other people for really no reason at all but I just skip over those and move on. This is great place so far and I'm sure that your choices on what to do will work fine or everyone - if not then they can leave. Keep up the good work leon!

I like the idea of one board with multiple areas of discussion as outlined in your post. Then each can pursue or ignore each area according to their specific interests.

Leon:

Frankly, I'm not seeing a whole lot of difference between two (or more) separate boards and "one" board (or front page anyway) partitioned into logical segments/threads/links.

Maybe my ability to think "outside the box" is hampering me.

As long as the content remains segregated, people will still have to navigate in some fashion to those areas that interest them the most rather than just clicking on a thread header that is staring them in the face.

Personally, either way is fine with me.

Kevin

I am soliciting feedback to try to get better. Ya'lls opinions are very important......I guess in the end I am striving for a little more focus to whatever we decide...and the best way to get there..Also it has been suggested to go back to just one board and one segment and ask for more focus? thanks again

Leon, as you know, I am all for this format. I'd suggest adding 2 catagories, autographs (since there seems to be way more than enough people into that here) and eBay alerts to cover scam alerts, bogus auctions, etc. that way everyone can have fun with their favorite reprint auction and other general eBay stupidity or mention free listing days.

I am ssuming that general discussion area would be the place to talk about off-topic stuff.

This Baseball Card Collecting Forum seems to be more confrontational and controversial than a meeting of the UN General Assembly to discuss the situation in Iraq. When you finally get it ironed out, perhaps you should offer your services to Kofi Annan.

Have you considered asking all respondents to submit their college transcripts, so we really know who has a Masters degree, and who does not?

More importantly, does anyone really know why T206 Eddie Plank cards are so scarce?

I think one pre-threaded board, each category with its own old style "bump to the top" BST thread, is the most ideal situation for all. It eliminates the problem of off topic posting because off topic posts would be allowed in one of the categories. Also, we'll be able to engage in more focused discussions in a number of specific areas of interest. I think Jay's two additional category suggestions are good ones as well.

I'm all for the multi-threaded board. Sounds like it should work well, and if it doesn't we can always go back to the current format.
