Roy and Moranis are lawyers.
Dons is, I think, a CPA.
Gouki, I am not sure what he does in real life.
I, am a former business own and manufacturing manager.

I don't think any one of us know how to code in such a manner as to remove that front page picture. That is in the hands of the owner and webmaster, byennie, and if you haven't noticed, his life is so busy he is barely participating on the blog.

Without byennie, there is no CelticsStrong.  So I would be a bit greatful instead of getting all up in arms over a picture.

As for our moderating style, we have a clear set of rules. We do our best to try to look into every thread and make sure everyone is posting within rule guidelines. But hey, if you want the type of environment that you can find on Reddit or RealGM boards with profanity, disrespect, flame wars and the such, those options are available to you. We run this blog to have a different environment and the people that prefer the flame war type environment don't belong here.
Interesting! Didn't know that Don is a CPA.

Yup.  Tax side of things.  Hope everyone made it thru 10/15 in one piece.

Haha it's 15/11 for us in HK, I hope you guys got through the deadline! Also interesting to see accountants in the US specialise in one field, most of the people I know here do a bit of everything.

I understand greece's point may have come off as crass, but he does have a point. Why not hire on a new [volunteer] moderator with some web/programming experience? Obviously byennie has been huge in keeping this thing running, but it wouldn't hurt to have one of the other higher-ups getting involved in the creative/functional side of things.

Losing the CB connection can't have helped this site. Maybe it's time to consider other avenues to gain membership now that we have withstood the separation.

As for the mods, we do appreciate what you do. It is a thankless job. I will say that it definitely seems more by the book than ever, though. I guess after 15 or so years (14 for me), people probably get crankier  ;)

The hosts should be banned for still having that darn picture on the landing page.....

Just saying.....

 >:(
We are a small blog with limited resources and run by staff who have real careers elsewhere. The front page will get done when it gets done.

Meh takes 2 minutes to swap an image out. I think there was big plans when we split from CB and reality kicked in forums don't make any money. While I appreciate the forums still being alive I'm not buying "the we too busy and have lives".

I guess my question would be what's the issue with swapping an image file out? Does no one know how or does no one have the time or does no one have an acceptable image to replace it with?

I accept the fact that this is what the CB forums are and will be. Unfortunately it probably means little to no growth and loss over time of the casuals only leaving the most hardcore of hardcore.


If you're so triggered by it, step up and take the initiative to reach out to byennie and update it.

-Someone who has zero clue how to fix it & someone who has a life outside the blog.  My job is not to appease some user who goes by the name ChillyWilly.

I'll help message me the FTP details. Be done in 1 hour.
I love basketball I love the Celtics I Hate August and October
