eplaya Silly Season = Decline & Fall

Postby theCryptofishist » Fri Aug 17, 2012 4:54 pm

The board gets a little weird in the second half of august... People start leaving, others are swamped with preparations. Tensions rise as deadlines loom. Those staying being dig in for a week or more of almost no one on the board... And sometimes the posting gets a little goofy.
Do trolls come out now, too? or is that just a coincidence this year?

I do think that the "wino" stuff has been wonderful.

I guess we all need to channel our playa anxieties somewhere.

Also, last year was so much better.

This year we have more safeguards and obstacles to spammers in place, thanks to Trilo. No doubt there will be spam getting in, and clueless posts. Technically the mods can access eplaya while at the event, but it takes an effort, so ... yeah, that's happening.

Last year you could actually hear crickets in here while the burn was going on. The spammers would shut them up for a little bit...... :lol:

I'm training my replacement to sit in for me on the boards, now. Someone who can fill in while I hit the playa. Seems like a nice kid.... I'm working on that......

You're supposed to see a doctor if it goes over 4 hours.

It will be spammy but at least people stop posting about needing tickets.

I thought my productivity at work would increase due to the declining number of posts, but now I find it hard to concentrate since the burn is so close. I'm spending all my time thinking through my plans over and over.

Same here. I am really useless here. Unfortunately, I've told everyone at work about where I'm going so they already figure I'm useless.

Me TOO!!!
Yesterday my boss called me a "Lame Duck"
For the last week and half I've been asking "what do you need before I leave" twice a day and doing nothing more than the bare minimum. But, they know that when I come back in September I'll be good to roll and get back to the 10 hour days.

Keep thinking of posting a question about Alex and Allyson Grey at the end of every thread. "Are Alex and Allyson Grey selling this ticket?"

Can tell I am giddy and overexcited because it seems hilarious to me, the way adding "in bed" seems so funny to some people when they read fortune cookies. Can tell I haven't lost it because I haven't done it yet.
