I forgot about Hagrid. I liked reading his stuff.
yes Hagrid the eye.
before becoming a mod, I was mad at him sometimes because I thought he always was "regañandome" ( sorry i dont know the word for that its like when a dad call his children for doing things wrong) but then I understand his role and after that I always look his Mod. method and learn from there.
I admitt I use the thing he used with me a couple of times.
I miss his contributions and posts here.
Yeah, I miss hagrid, as well. He was definitely the strictest mod, but his philosophy was important in keeping this place family friendly.
By the way, I think the "I forgot about hagrid" thing is why nick is proposing a HOF. Yes, it's honorary, but more than anything I think nick is trying to preserve the history around here a bit. There have been various incarnations of this blog, and a lot of the site history has been lost and/or forgotten over time.
As nick related to me via a PM (hopefully he won't mind if I disclose this), 20 years from now, hopefully Celticsblog will be thriving. However, it's unlikely that all of our most influential members will still be around. There may be a time when people ask "Who was Bob Day?", much like some have no familiarity with hagrid and others. A little section of the site where some of that can be preserved is, to me, a good thing.
I'm not all that concerned with people's egos, I guess. We're all adults here, and if somebody's hurt feelings are the cost of preserving this site's legacy over time, it's something I think we should be willing to sacrifice. I would ask people to take a step back and recognize that this isn't meant as a slight towards anybody, but is rather a way of remembering the highlights of an earlier time.
