GID not a victim of contraction

Recommended Posts

Apparently not

Good to see the ole' GID back up and running.  I thought you were DOA and headed for the message board scrap heap, like so many before you.

But alas, here we are.  

Looking forward to more enlightening conversation with the members who return.

Happy New Year to all!

DT

Will the true heart of the GID,  the Out Of Bounds forum, which was championed by the late, great Tim Adams, be created soon?   There is so much to talk about and discuss.

Just when I thought I validated an IMPOSTER, you have eased my concerns:  😀

yes, the OOB will be built.   Its still on the list of items for @DK_Barons to build, which he has done a tremendous job. 

Again want to say thanks to @77Jimmie for providing the in house server for our community.  Our last one I believe was housed by 3rd party in San Diego!!   

as the late great Jim Nabors once sang so gracefully:

Good, my concerns are unfounded.  And yes,  DK_Barons has performed a herculean task.

I don't quite understand why the GID would allow a political sub site like the OOB to exist on its football discussion bandwidth.  Aren't there enough other options for posters to engage in political discussion?

Is the OOB propping up the GID relative to on line user activity?

This is a good opportunity to abolish the OOB once and for all.

I respectfully disagree.  The OOB forum was not explicitly created by the late Mr. Adams as a "political sub site" but rather as an non-football topic subforum, which I believe is healthy for a forum the size of the Gridiron Digest.

Looks to me like 95% of the OOB discussion takes place on Trump related threads.  Inappropriate for this site.  Just my opinion.

I believe the percentage of "Trump related threads" in the OOB was not near that high,  but just my opinion.

Not sure it's all political discussion.

Even if it were, we have a good cross section of people that participate. Not to mention several who hang out in the OOB forum have personal relationships. Having known TA and discussed the forum with him some, I think it's pretty close to what he had envisioned. And most of us still have a common denominator, we love high school Football.

Cant you just use your Facebook page, or twitter, or whatever platform you desire to engage in your non football conversations?  I vote we shut it down.

and because its a forum that can only be accessed if the USER CLICKS THE LINK INTO THE FORUM, those who choose NOT to participate (cough cough @DT cough cough) can enjoy our website without stepping foot digitally into said area.  

We call that in this country:  #FREEDOM

That’s guys for getting us back up and rolling.  Volunteerism in regards to football in our state is a Godly endeavor IMO!
