I guarantee if you were a verified casino servalance person there would be a ton of questions and lot's of chatter.



I assume that most knew I was, since I mentioned it so frequently over a number of years. I think I had maybe two members question me about it for the whole however many years I've been here, and one was a short lived guy that got the axe after <100 posts. The other was EB, and we talk about everything anyways.

In short, I assumed no one really cares for what happens in the dungeon. But whoever mentioned MST3K, yeah. It's mostly just that, all day long.

It snowed today. I prefer the suspense rather than the set up ;)

Besides, old folks are the only people I get along with. If they're in the hospital, I'll have no one to talk to.

Bah, I missed the reference, what with the show being cancelled 12 years before I was even born. All I remember was grandpa watching repeats while I sang "The Fishing Hole" with grandma.

The avatar came from some old WoV codger who dubbed me The Sheriff and used to rag my ass everyday. I guess I took it all as a compliment and stuck with it =)

I have not put up my opinion on this question before now, because I think it was an excellent place for regular members to discuss it without moderator input, but I'd like to make a factual comment. I was offline from Saturday night late until Wed. am with other activities and travelling (3 1/2 days on Eastern US time). I came back to 8 pages of recent threads, most with numerous comments, so well over 100 active threads, approximately 1000 posts, about 25 new members, all of which took me about 12 hours to read (and comment on a few, and do a few administrative tasks). I really can't call that kind of participation a "dead" forum, regardless of traffic trends.

If someone says you have a Barney Fife complex, it is usually not a compliment. hahah

I didn't know this. The fact you're in green may have something to do with lack of questions (-;.

12hrs?!
you read thru EVERY thread?! Why not just rely on people clicking on the 'inappropriate post' button?

or do you take weekly turns w/the other volunteer mods (face/mission) to read every post?
