Okay, I caved and went over to the CH for the first time since February. The bit about Lilly being banned was the last straw, and I had to check it out.<br><br>
Good lord.<br><br>
We're going to have more people on our hands. We're going to have the people who derided this place and didn't want to come here. We're going to have people who want to re-create the CH as it was last week.<br><br>
I'm not sure I'm up for that. I quit as moderator of the CH because I couldn't take it 5 years ago.<br><br>
We need an enculturation before we're swamped and overwhelmed. I don't want to be the one that has to hit people between the eyes with the Guidelines all the time, but if I have to do that I will.<br><br>
What are your thoughts guys?

Grizz - I lurked over there just now too because of the thread at PRT that said the CH was dead, so I looked at a few of the threads over there and how everyone is jumping ship because they aren't willing to tame down their animal house humor. I agree with you, that they'll be converging over here - at least the majority will. I'm not a regular at the PRT, but some days I like hanging around there and posting something once inawhile. I already know that if the same CH humor, language, instigation, etc. happens to PRT, that that will simply be one area of Kick I won't visit anymore.<br><br>
I wish I had a good easy solution for you. I don't envy you one bit. I guess it would be too much to expect grown-ups to read the guidelines and just abide by them, still have fun and be a bit edgy in their humor if they want w/o crossing lines or being downright offensive to others . . . <img alt="roll_eyes.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/roll_eyes.gif">

The challenge is in not letting what we have be overrun. I see that there's a bit of animosity towards our style, and some comments about "wearing us down".<br><br>
Gee, I DON'T want this to be the CH as it was a week ago. I'm quite happy with the CH as it was 7 years ago, which is basically what we have...

i am not sure what to do except maybe heavy handed moderation? Be very on top of personal attacks, etc. We can all keep an eye out. HOWEVER, in the past couple weeks i have not really been paying attention to most threads. I am sorry Grizz, i wish there were a solution. I was hoping the Ch regulars would give active a chance and see if they could adjust to the new format, etc, but it seems not.

We do have have a couple of days to develope a game plan. If they arent already here and activated, they wont be until after we get moved to the new server. So that might give people a bit of time to either get used to active, find somewhere else to go or think about what we expect here and decide if they want to be part of it or not.<br><br>
Grizz...I'll be around to help too so you wont have to be the only "enforcer" As rich said in a thread..... I DO know how to be a bitch when I have to. <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif">

Thanks.<br><br>
There are some folks (McGoofy I think, and Jan) who are convinced that they are banned. Bad timing with the server...

Grizz, at this point, Rich told me NOT to activate anyone new. I need to check with him and see if includes "reactivating" people who are currently in "inactive" status.<br><br>
He told me that as he was on the phone talking with the server discussing what needed to be done about our level of usage So I assume we are right on the brink of pushing the envelope just over the edge as far as server usage goes. I dont want to do anything that ends up being the "last straw" and shutting us down, which I think we are very close to.<br><br>
I plan on emailing each new person that registers letting them know whats going on and why they are not getting activated quickly.<br><br>
As for Slojan and McGoofy, I dont recall that they ever registered in the past. Can you give me their usernames and I will check and see what the status is on their accounts. Or you can give them my email addy here and I can talk to them directly. Up to you.<br><br>
Oh, and NO ONE has been banned, ever!

Perhaps a small group of mods for the PRT would make it easier to manage the shear volume and make Grizz less of a bad guy?<br><br>
Close communication would be needed, perhaps this is where the infraction button comes in?

I think this could be a good idea. Not that I'm volunteering.<br><br>
I used to moderate a chat room for an online game, and they tried to always have mods from different time zones, so we wouldn't have people going berzerk in the wee hours of the morning.
