Everyone, please welcome bigfetz as our new moderator.


As of today, L.A.K.E.R will no longer hold an administrator role here at LN.  We had a discussion in the past, regarding his role and the time he has to contribute here.  There's absolutely no doubt in my mind that he can make time for the site, but I'm not going to request that he does.  He has been inactive for over a month now, and his plate is full of things that are, quite frankly, more important than a message board...even though we're pretty cool around here.


Currently, there are no plans to fill that administration void, but there are candidates.  I just want people to keep in mind that staff positions are not rewarding, they are extra roles that you must fulfill without any true benefits.  Moderators are not paid for what they do, but they are asked to patrol the forums AND stay active.  When looking for candidates, I don't pay much attention to how much you post...it's your interaction with others, and not necessarily you suggesting that cooler heads prevail, either (no backseat mods).  Our most dedicated posters aren't always the best for staff positions, and if they were, we would probably have to sacrifice our posting quality to make that happen.


Finally, understand that our moderators are directing traffic based on how they are taught to.  Ultimately, that is up to me.  However, they have the power to make decisions on the fly, and almost always, I will back that decision 100%.  It's their job to be the good guys out there.  They want you to post in an enjoyable environment, and honestly, just talk basketball.  Their suggestions, and sometimes demands, are only good for the message board, and it prevents me from having to go in and handle things in a quicker, but sometimes less enjoyable, way.


Thanks everyone.

Thanks guys, life just got way too busy after I transferred from CC and the general crappiness of our team kind of kept me from really watching much basketball at all. It actually wasn't until this last quarter that I was able to really start watching any NBA basketball again. I did just graduate two weeks ago though, so I'll definitely be stopping by more often this summer at least.


Wait, maybe not after this Mozgov signing. I might just cry myself to sleep this next week. 


Anyways, congrats bigfetz, good luck!
