I was wondering how long it would take before someone brought this up in a disagreement.

I just don't really think its fair to hang that over the heads of how we moderate on here.  Our #1 goal should be able to keep it the type of community it has always been.  That community is governed by some posting rules & guidelines.

I can honestly say, I donít think a single staff member has looked at the donation list when recommending discipline. Or, in this case posting a common sense warning.

As someone who both donated and is banned from a certain forum, I can say I totally agree. Whatever donations were made, were made to keep the forum going. It doesn't buy any of us any new influence or power and has nothing to do with the conversation of rules, etc.

to be honest, i am shocked that such a point is even being raised here. the list does not reveal who donated, first.

next, i cannot imagine our mods weighing decisions based upon some sort of list of donations.

this place is better than that.

Agree.

Regarding donations though, do we still get t-shirts if we go over $50? I was at $46 and I'd gladly throw in an extra tenner for my tee.  ;D ;)

LOL I was wondering tho if I flash my threoretical CelticsStrong t-shirt around if someone will recognize it and ask me my screenname etc. Could lead to some "interesting" discussions considering the occasionally inflammatory arguments we have on here  ;D jk. Mostly  ;)

All love, my peeps

Can we get it back to 10 topics on the Latest Discussion panel? 5 seems really restrictive, especially using some of that space for Community and Fantasy posts that have narrower engagement. 

If there's a way to change it in my settings that'd be cool too - I just can't find one so far.

Itís not a settings issue.

My guess is that byennie is maximizing space on the right for ads.

For whatever itís worth, I agree. Iíd like to see more of the recent topics, and the partial return of the menu that contained the memberís list, search bar, etc.

The site has to have advertising revenue. I think everyone would like an exact replica of the last site but I can understand that sacrifices will need to be made so advertising can have it's space.

One of your fellow members channeled Kanye and started ranting about the rules in another thread.  It got merged into this one, which is why some of the titles in this thread look odd.

For sure, I'm just suggesting cannibalizing the Community and Fantasy menus, I pretty much keep those minimized anyway. Or maybe just making Latest Discussions expandable or pageable.

We're definitely open to suggestions, and probably you will see things change periodically as we experiment. That said, it's very difficult to get ads to perform at all on a forum so while I try to keep them tasteful (e.g. NBA on a basketball forum) they probably will get prime real estate from time to time.

The community and fantasy panels, we're hoping to add more structure to those and make them more useful. More official fantasy leagues, community events, game threads always highlighted etc so that new people always see the key stuff.

That said, I could probably bump back up the number of latest posts as things develop. I appreciate the feedback.
