    [QUOTE]


    Just a quick update about the formatting issue here. Chris can now see the problem with a link to page 12 of this thread, so he is aware that its real. Lets leave page 12 uncorrected for future reference for the developers. His last words to me were "stay tuned". I requested an estimated repair time and as always I will pass this information along when I get it.

    Thanks for staying on this.

    67, I have started to get rid of the white noise, or copy and paste what I'm responding to, out of respect for the other posters, who are. I held out hope it would be fixed but apparently it won't be, anytime soon.

    The problem is when chris looked at one of the threads he didn't see white space.  If he can't see the problem he won't fix it.  I suggest we don't cut and paste so chris can see what's going on.  That's what I'm going to do.  No dead body, no crime.  No white space no problem.


     



    That was my original thought process too, 67 and why I didn't eliminate the white spaces. I saw the mods posts where he/they was working with BDC regarding the issue(s), so until they're fixed, I'll do what I can to help the forum be more user friendly.

    Well Mod2 if everyone here loved Bill-806 and he was a huge asset to the forum such a thread "Does anyone like Bill-806" would not have been removed, and you would not have issued a warning to me.


    But because he is scorned and such a negative lightning rod you take issue with me thread.


    Let me know if you would feel the same way if I started a "Does anyone like Moonslav59" thread.... 


    [/QUOTE]
    You make an excellent point in your "Moonslav59" comparison.  However, I think Mod2's warning has to be taken in the context of the recent issues here.  


    While I am of the opinion that Bill brought much of the criticism upon himself he now has avowed to clean up his act.  Therefore we have no choice but to back off on Bill a bit until we find out whether or not he's actually sincere. If he is sincere his presence here is no different than any other poster's presence.  If he's not being sincere that will show soon and I'm of the opinion that there are certain posters here who will be down on him like flies on feces.  


    I think you're a good poster.  A little "off the wall" at times but I always enjoy reading what you have to say so I'd hate to see you get banned over this. It would be terribly ironic if you got banned and Bill didn't, so don't go doing anything stupid, ok?  :-)

    To me..the point seems to be that it is not a popularity contest. Bill has the right to post here regardless of whether or not people like him...as long as he is not violating the TOS. I don't feel the need to reply to or address each and every one of Bill's off the wall comments. I guess I still don't understand why anyone does. Guess what? I don't like Bill's politics either...but I also never respond to his politics in this Red Sox forum because I don't come to this forum to talk politics. There is a very lively politics forum for that.


    I guess I just don't understand what everyone's fixation is with Bill. Just pass his comment by. It's really that simple.


    I will say that one thing I have never seen Bill do is start threads aimed at fellow posters. Starting threads aimed at other posters is really a very immature thing to do..so regardless of how childish Bill can be...I suggest that certain posters take a look in the mirror before casting stones.


    I have to say..as a woman..I am really surprised at the overly emotional reaction to Bill by some of the guys on this forum ;-)

    Hey Ms C.  i cant speak for other posters but i can say that after years of watching certain posters:



    • sticking political jabs into threads out of nowhere

    • making veiled (and sometimes not veiled) racist posts

    • apologizing in 1 post and 2 minutes later doing exactly what he/she posted an apology for.


    There was recently a nice 1-2 week stretch in which there was some really good baseball dialogue going on in these boards without the political rhetoric and without a dozen new threads popping up on how terrible our DH is. 


    Emotional?  yup, i think i have reached that threshold.  i plan on monitoring this situation very closely and will jump at the chance to rid this forum of someone who i believe is simply a troll that is only here to stir trouble and not even a Red Sox fan.

    I don't understand the cavalier attitude of some posters regarding white space. While at times we're a dysfunctional bunch, at the same time we're all in this together.  Shouldn't we all be doing what we can to make it a better place to post?  


    And if these temporary (I hope) glitches drive other people away, who loses?  Not BDC.  They're not collecting any money from us for the right to post here.  We lose.  We lose because we've lost this place to exchange ideas & thoughts. 


    Since this is a baseball forum I'll put my 'case' in baseball terms:


    If you were the CF on a baseball team and it was obvious to you that your team has a much better SS than the guy who's playing there,  would you say, "I'm going to quit hustling until they take this guy out of SS" or would you decide to do whatever is necessary to help your team win?

     i cant speak for other posters but i can say that after years of watching certain posters:





        • sticking political jabs into threads out of nowhere







        • making veiled (and sometimes not veiled) racist posts







        • apologizing in 1 post and 2 minutes later doing exactly what he/she posted an apology for.




    There was recently a nice 1-2 week stretch in which there was some really good baseball dialogue going on in these boards without the political rhetoric and without a dozen new threads popping up on how terrible our DH is.

    Hmmm.... possibly it would be more beneficial to all posters to accept what's above as a primer as to what's appropriate and what's not than to portray themselves as a "misunderstood victim".  


    JMO!

    And I don't have any idea what's going on now with all the white space.  I took ALL the blank lines out between the bulleted items and they reappeared when I added my post.   Sorry.

    Hello fellow posters! Got some good news this morning (I hope). Here is the latest communication I received from Chris Rattey. Perhaps the sea of white will soon be history. Then we can work on some of the other issues posters have raised:


    Good news. Got this fixed overnight. Just need to push the fix through migration to the live site, which I'm trying to fast track. Let's hope I can wrap this up asap. Please pass along to the members.



    Also... FYI... also fixing the mods abilities to read PMs as well. Hopefully that will go through quickly as well.

    No, the issue persists. I thought it had already been fixed, but its still there. Neither of us has any intention of snooping around the pms of other posters, but even the ability to do so should not be available. In any event, this should be fixed soon.

    I don't think anyone should start a negative thread about a fellow poster.  I have said this before.  I think that kind of behavior is juvenile.  School yard tactics.

    Wasn't there a problem with the private message function a while back too? There was some glitches that were allowing some posters to see other posters private messages? I seem to remember this. I haven't used the private message system in many, many months..and I can tell you that I will not send a message to any poster using this system again.
    Those posters with whom I want to communicate "offline" with have my contact information. Otherwise, anything I have to say..I will say on the public forum. After all..I am sure we all realize that our private messages are not really private.

    Suggestion for the moderators....


    Maybe you could mention this to your contact at BDC. Is there a way for BDC to block members from having multiple screen names at one time.


    It's a tad bit frustrating when you are going back and forth with a few members only to realize, that two of them are the same person.

    I will ask, but I don't think that is possible. Since posters cannot be banned by IP address all you really need is a new email address to get back on the forum once you have been banned. Of course, as we did with Pike who could not help but behave badly, we can make life difficult for banned posters returning under another username if they continue to violate the posting policy. I was going to mention the other suggestions to Chris once he solved the sea of white problem because thats the most flagrant remaining problem here. Other posters have asked for the stars to be reinstated (they take you automatically to the last new post that you have read on a thread), spellcheck, and the ability to insert pictures, among other suggestions. Lets let them fix the formatting issue first.
