I think we should...

a) make more categories than discussion..

i know crossx.com has regions.. so, EMO, KC, Central MO, etc.
or we could do divisions..but that's not as effective...

we could also divide this up in terms of.. i dunno... tournament.. general.. suggestion.. etc... i dunno...









B) assign more moderators..

might i nominate myself?

There's only 20 registered posters, and about seven regular posters. Regionalized boards aren't needed just yet.

And no. We only need one admin right now, and he's doing fine.

Yeah, we don't need regions. There are only slightly over 20 posters, as opposed to over 600 on the national board.

I think the person in the computer field on the board should be a moderator. If not that the person in the post lead

I mean bias toward posters; you seem to abuse me a lot and I'm afraid that you'd abuse your powers against me.

Well, if you looked at the stats...

Anyway, everybody wants to be #1. It's only natural.

If you look at the stats your next closet person was like 10ppg or so (i'm not looking going off memory) Where Andrew was only 5-10ppg behind you but had 2 teammates over 20ppg. and the 3 arkansas boys around 30ish. You do the math. You will not find a will to be number one greater than in me, but I know when to use it and when not to. Nor do I brag that i'm number one(even when i'm not)

Are those CBI stats, NAQT stats, or stats from some invitational?

what ever tournament you were bragging about since it has Ark in there would not be CBI. My guess is naqt nationals

Well, the initial claim was made from the 2003 NAQT Nationals stats; but supporting stats could have come from several other tournaments.

lol - possibly, since you've never technically "met" me i guess Jason can hold that post...for now

uhh... yeah, he's pretty damn cocky - saying you're the best player in the midwest is one thing...but

"my entire school was jealous of my intellect"
"i'm cute as a button - won 2nd in some baby competition"

i mean..that's crossing the line

Whatever, I just wanted to show that I wasn't always nerdy-looking. (I didn't get glasses until I was 5).

Well, I wore the jacket because it was cold outside and if I kept it on it was because I didn't want to misplace it. Also, I put my hood down when I was outdoors and even when the hood was up, it wasn't Kenny tight.

That's because we usually see each other in October-February, where the weather usually mandates a jacket. Besides, if you got a drawstring on your hood, you might as well use it and keep your face secure. Also, if it's raining, I may have the hood on a little tight as I'm trying to protect my glasses from getting wet.

How do shorts equal being a man? Excuse me for liking to have my legs covered when the weather's not warm.
