General Question/Comments


Recommended Posts

Aren't they better in the same threads as the events they're for? They're part of us celebrating those events, after all, and that's where people who are interested would most easily find them. And why do you need a separate sweeps forum when we already have a dedicated competitions forum?

And fair enough if you want to do them for all events and sundry, maybe the board needs that bit of regular fun. But in the past we've only done sweeps for the two biggest events followed on GamesBids after the Olympics - the FIFA WC and the Rugby WC. I doubt we'd get much interest for any but those two. It's not that fun unless they're fully subscribed and everyone's closely following the event.

Yeah, it would be Fun if more members participate in these Competitions/Sweepstakes.

I don't think there's any "maybe" about it. Absolutely nothing has changed apart from the volume of posts. Personally, I consider that reduction a mercy to the rest of us.

NO. Repeating things over and over are not constructive posts.

Tony, 3 things here.. 1) The thread title may be Ask the Moderator, but this is still a public thread. If you had something you wanted to say to GBMod privately, this wasn't the place to put it. An

They're just not that popular outside of the WC and Euros and the Rugby WC. I was very lucky that my commonwealth games sweep was as successful as it was.

Hey Tony - why don't you do a sweep for the logo comp? :P

Think of it - I could be krow, and krow could be you and you could be Baron etc.

I'm not sure. Unique idea though. :P

Absolutely staggered that my "Je suis Charlie" post on the 'Terrorist attack against French satire magazine' thread has been modded !!! :(

Can anyone tell me what I did wrong?

(Apologies to all if this is the wrong place to post)

I guess it was because of certain comments by one poster...

You lead a very sad life.

Well, takes one to know one.

Actually, I lead a very varied and full life and I don't spend my time 2nd-guessing how other people lead theirs...because I don't really care how you lead yours. Capsice?

Go onto his YouTube channel and see the type of comments he's leaving on the types of videos he's watching. That's how he's leading his life.

I know I'm gonna regret posting this but wtf.

Am flattered that you're taking more time learning about me than me caring about you. I guess that's how you lead your life. And who do I harm? Do I harm you?

And yes, I am retired -- that is why I have all this time and a wide range of interests and opinions. That is why they are called 'social media' - so one can connect/be part of a larger world -- not just being stuck in a filler for "Middle Earth." :P God forbid you should live so long and have so many interests.

Get your own fulfilling life, you empty soul.

I was hardly dirt digging, I just was going to watch you video on your book, clicked on your channel and was presented with your comments on cat videos, a couple anti-islamic videos and a ****-ton of ceremony videos on which you suggested people but your but not owning up to being the author of it.

And anyway, aren't I on block baron

Can't figure out where else to post this question: Why does my poster information on the left have "0 Warning Points"? I mean, I'm glad to have zero of what sounds like something I don't want to have, but nobody else's posts seem to display this. I checked my settings and can't figure out how to delete this--what am I missing?

I would be amenable to leaving it up but only if everybody else's WP's can be displayed. I want to know who's been naughty..... :P

Is there enough interest for a sub forum to discuss the Paralympic movement?

That actually seems like a good idea, although I think the Paralympic movement news is included with the Olympic movement news.
