Precip is correct in that I can not devote as much time as I would like to adminning these boards. I have a day job that eats a lot of my screen time, and sometimes I just don't even want to look at my computer when I come home from work. There are just too many conversations, and to be honest, it's diffuclt to remember to pay attention to the ones that do not personally interest.
I would like to see more management of threads, moving threads and consolidation of threads that would make using this board as resource more effective.
Going right along with that idea, I'm finding that some of the threads are being deleted or "auto pruned", thus requiring new threads on topics that have already been covered in great detail (i.e. teenagers at Burning Man.
this could be a full time job for at least one person. what a blast it would be, how connected you would feel to the community!
cool - someone who predates me & robthewop. what handle did you post under back when?
Allanon03 - I don't know whether that was an offhand comment about Precipitate or the posing of a legitimate concern, but it came across as personal and petty. If you wish to raise a legitimate concern about this, please contact me privately (as others have done) and I'll be happy to discuss it with you.

3) Go with the letter of the law. It's a violation so delete the post (since the conversation is still bascially healthy it would be wrong to freeze it), contact the poster, and give them the warning that if they do it again their posting privileges will be suspended.
OK so option 1 is easiest, but I worry about setting a precedent of arbitrariness. Same issue for Option 2, plus it wold only feel satisfying itf the poster really understand that it wasn't cool, which is a gamble. Option 3 seems clear and justified, but feels heavy-handed given the fact that no one seems overly concerned. Even the original complaint-giver merely pointed out the infraction, with no apparent investment in the outcome.
Anyone have thoughts? Other options?
