The moderator list appears to be shrinking daily?how many moderators does EOG need anyway?

Paid-posters...who needs them?

Perhaps a poll of who gets dumped to the curb next is in order?

Are there replacements in the wings or is this the beginning of the end?

Re: The Shrink is shrinking EOG?

This summer, I interned at a startup in San Francisco. The CEO was quite a legend in his own right. He was the sort of guy that you couldn't help but like. All summer, he threw out pearls of wisdom when he was CEO at an online site (you definitely know it) before he took up this project. Long story short, he said when he started the previous company in 1998, the thought they would have to pay posters to post on the site. Who would ever post any worthwhile or significant for free?

He laughed pretty hard at himself for that one.

This site needs quality gambling and entertaining thoughts other than the circle jerks that are prevalent. After that, the traffic will take care of itself.

Shrinky, give the green pooch a job. He passed the audition better than Carrie Underwood and needs the beer money ...

Football season is over....there isn't as much of a need now....to remain at full staff would be silly.....maybe seasonal mods would make transitions feel smoother to the eog public.

We are in the midst of a severe recession. Most sectors are not immune to this, and neither is gambling ...

EOG will be down-sizing until the economy gets stronger...

That would be a hoot

Ya should have done it as a joke just to see how quickly Mofome would
have ordered his EOG Posting card that allows ya to load up to $100
at a time on the card

Re: The Shrink is shrinking EOG?

Bullshit..

Blondie wants an EOG bailout so she can get a big fat ass bonus
Doc, what's the upside to saying this? True, false, or so what; why do we care???? From what I know of you, you are a true believer in actual, true, human rights. Why denigrate Blondie b/c of your perception of her size?? If I'm out of touch b/c of joking, etc. . .I apologize in advance. . .:cocktail:cocktail:cocktailand all that that entails. . .

Re: The Shrink is shrinking EOG?

I dont think sites need paid moderaters. Is it posters or moderaters that attract people? What Shrink has done right is made good poster like Mofome mod. I think he could mod the whole place by himself, actually he pretty much does that as is.

I go to Beyondcapping to read AlanBoston, not to see any moderater. I want to see what this tormented soul is going to pick next. I go to Madjack because of golf forum. If I were a site owner I would pay superstar posters and not 8 to 12 mods who dont attract an ounce of friggin traffic.

I agree with much of what you just said. I have tried it all.

When you allow a forum to be run with no moderation, you end up with a failure such as OGD. I don't know any sponsor/sportsbook who wishes to affiliate themselves with that cesspool.

When you over moderate, the TRUTH about certain sportsbooks gets deleted, and the posters often feel less important. You end up with a site like TheRx has become...

When you have little or no useful traffic, you get rid of your forum like gambling911 had had to do...

The only other forum I respect these days is SBR.

Although they've been in business for many more years than EOG, I believe both forums started around the same time..

Each place tolerates a lot of FREE SPEECH, but we are also accountable and responsible for monitoring threads when necessary...

Bottom line: It's a combination of posters and definitely a few superstar employees that make the difference in this industry...

All I try to do is stay out of the way and allow this place to grow...

Re: The Shrink is shrinking EOG?

Shrink good thoughts but I think the majority of the posters wonder why you pick the ones you do to keep and get rid of others.

J man surviving this round of lay offs and getting rid of Hache and Gyno is nutso.

We realize times are tough everywhere but any insight on how you decide who to keep and who to fire?

Rail I have seen a million of your posts and respect your opinion but this is 1000 percent off base. If you have not seen it now you have to realize that it takes the following and it cannot be any more clear than this.

1. Head Mod- (Mo)- A mod that is able to communicate with all the public, maintain all his energy and energize the board along with having a passion for it and maintaining the ability to attempt to come up with ideas to keep the board fresh. Even though Mo's responsibility is to moderate he entrusts those below him to do this so that he may spend more energy on the things mentioned earlier.
2. Admin/Mod- (Blondie) Someone that does what mo's does in connecting with posters but also doing the technical ends of the entire forum while at the same time moderating the forum.
3. 3 other moderators. These moderators jobs are to maintain moderation on the forum on a needed basis. Attempt to interact with the forum as much as they can while doing their duties. And then running contests when possible to keep the board involved, we all love contests, especially the free ones. On top of this these moderators maintain contacts with books in the ability to possibly keep the free play contests as well as paid contests in order.

This is just thoughts on what makes a forum run smooth. I could very well be wrong. Times suck right now and from a gamblers prespective I dont even spend as much because, well it sucks.


To say one person can moderate a forum is a stretch. You need a core group as mentioned above imo to keep a forum running as smooth as possible for the owner.
