Questions to the group...

As quasi de-facto default interim blog administrator of this here lawless society, I figured I'd post a few questions to the group.

First of all, the only reason I am blog administrator is because I set it up first and the Blogger computer sees me that way. I do not see myself as being better than anyone. I see myself as just as equal here as anyone. But I do know how to work the Blogger setup, so I will handle that end of things for now unless anyone objects.

I do want to ask everyone how we should do this thing in the future. Because I have been asked some questions in the e-mail and I want them to be heard.

1. This question is better asked by copying it from the e-mail I got.

Why not do it in team format and assign a day to each person. Monday’s are one guys day (hopefully someone who can get the ball rolling on what happened during the weekend), etc. Friday’s are someone who can set us up for the weekend (funny predictions, over/unders, etc.)

I don’t get many hits on Saturday and Sunday, so I don’t know that anyone needs to post then. But if you got 4 guys who wanted to post Monday through Friday and left one day for guest post day, that might be away to keep it fresh.

I would hate to see more than one post a day, because you will lose the frat atmosphere of the comments…too many conversations to cover.


What does everyone think about that? Should we assign days to each person who contributes, or should we just let it be open to who wants to post when they feel like it? With 5 contributors, posting whenever we feel like it could get overwhelming, but maybe overwhelming isn't a bad thing. We've already had more than one posting a day, and I've been OK with it. And maybe we as the contributors to the front page can simply police ourselves and wait until the next day if a couple have been put up on one day. And perhaps if we assign the daily thing, we get a little too organized and we lose a bit of the lawlessness that made us interesting at first. Thoughts?

2. We now have 5 contributors. I do believe Zeke has accepted the 5th spot. I wanted to open it up to contributors so I didn't have to be the one who posted every day. And it was open to the first people who asked. Those guys you see listed were the ones who simply stepped up quicker. Now my question... do we want to open it up to anymore? Or should this be it? It's up to you guys. I'm happy to add more, but I understand where we might need a limit. And I know some of you might be happy just being commenters. Let me know.

3. I am getting requests for links from here. I have no problem with that. I can set those up for us. If you leave them in comments, I'm sure I will see them. And I will post a few from commenters that I know will be relevant. I will reserve the right to say no to links if they are not relevant. The blog doesn't have to be about sports, but it should be at least a little relevant to something, and it should belong to someone who comments over here (with the notable exception to KC and Simmons).

I'm going away this weekend to Boston, so I will be absent through Tuesday. But I am now sure you will carry this on without me over the weekend, and that is a good thing. This is more your blog than it is mine. And I want it that way. Besides, someone told me this in an e-mail, and I thought it was really funny...

No offense, but I’ve told tons of people how your blog is ok, BUT your commenting is legendary.

This is why you may see me more in comments than actual postings. And I'll let the other guys post more than me. But you never know when I may pop up.

Thank you all for contributing. This started as me responding to Zeke's comments as a joke, and it seems to have really turned into something. I'm impressed.

That is all for now. Carry on, and let's hope some babes show up and start commenting. What's a good lawless society without babes?

GM-Carson said...

I had a rotation like that in mind too. It would be up to us individually to adhere to it.

Besides, it's not like we wouldn't get our daily say. We would get our say in the comments each time, and just take turns moving to the top.

Can we police ourselves that way?

jugdish said...

Suddenly the lawless society has laws...I like...:)

As a commentor I think 2 a day is plenty. Any more and you're like a kid on Halloween night who went Frank the Tank on the candy. Next thing you know you lost 2 hours where you don't remember what happened and the work day is almost over. Do you think KFC is still open?

anonymous said...

i could totally go for some of those KFC biscuits.. oh goodness.. and with honey..

d'oh!

The Rev said...

Them KFC bowls is tasty.

Fried chicken, gravy, corn, and mashed potaters all mushed together... BRILLIANT!

temwr said...

I like the idea of 1 a day, with a special one every now and then to kick us up to 2 for a day. Any more than 1 a day and the comments get spread out between too many threads and that loses the feel of the revolution.

Right now there are like 4 posts today and it is just too much. So yes, bring some laws to this "Lord of the Flies" society we have here.

Also, I was thinking that if someone else wanted to contribute an "article" that it could be posted as a "Special to Sons of KC." That way some other people can get some posts in, but not have the responsibility/pressure of posting once a week. I expect this would be a rare thing though.

JFreak said...

The whole thing that made KC's blog interesting was the comments...so we need to keep posts down so people have the chance to comment. I woke up this morning and there were three new posts. I got all flustered and crap. I didn't know which to comment on. I lost all direction.

We only need one or two a day...and if we see the need for another topic...like the NFL vs. College one...someone just puts it up, and goes on with it.

Isiah Thomas said...

I think one a day does sound better. Keep the comments centralized and streamlined. I say one a day, can I get a seconding motion?

The Rev said...

I said two a day on the other thread, but I'm cool with one a day.

temwr said...

I like one a day, with a variance allowed for up to two a day.

Sometimes topics will pop up that need their own thread ASAP.

whocares said...

Is this how America was started?

They make it seem so legit in the history books but I bet it went something like this. Just some dudes who initially rebelled.

Then they were like, shit, I guess we really do need laws and stuff...

Isiah Thomas said...

What is our new country called? Revolution Sports? We'll need a name.

anonymous said...

i feel so honored to be a founding father. it's like watching a baby grow.

we need an anthem though.. we'll have to work on that.

The Rev said...

Yeah, I feel all historical and revolutionary. Now all I need is a powdered wig.

Our anthem will have a beat, no doubt!

THE CHAMP. said...

Damn I'm Native American, does this mean I have to give you my blog in return for a lifetime of alchoholism? Trail of tears, I walk you once again.

The 5 man rotation is great. Works good in MLB, who are we to argue. I say one post a day with a possible 2nd post if a major story breaks (or something that just has to be said).

anonymous said...

indian, go skin me a bear and go back to your hole.

also, bring me your finest meats, cheeses, and young virgin.

you make'a white man happy.

THE CHAMP. said...

REPIRATIONS!!!!

whocares said...

In this new society, can I be The Minister of Defense?

anonymous said...

you can be our reggie white.

The Rev said...

Bryan is a Native American, eh? Nice.

Don't worry. You'll make all of our white guy money back in one of those casinos eventually.
