Just noticed that the older threads are gone and may have been archived or deleted altogether. The oldest posting goes back only up to a year ago July 7, 2004. When I first joined this forum, there was a main thread(can't remember what it was called anymore) which was more dynamic and where posters can chit-chat and post questions that won't entail a separate thread. As there is currently no main clubhouse thread, the funshoots and matches thread has served this purpose but this detracts from the purpose of that thread which is to coordinate upcoming matches and post results, pictures and experiences. One other advantage of a main thread is that it would lessen thread hijacks(which I admit I'm guilty of at times ) that results when there is no thread to engage in light banter. If I may, (with deference to the BOG founders who can voice out their objections) I would like to reactivate the main clubhouse thread. I'm not familiar with server restrictions but if really needed, like the Funshoots and Matches thread we could limit the threads to say 30 pages and anyone can start the next one. Forum rules are, as always, in effect and everyone is asked to be nice to one another like civilized and educated people. All BOGs are also enjoined to exercise self-moderation and remind others to behave. Occassional trolls should be dealt with by simply ignoring them and not thru confrontation. In extreme cases, just let the moderators deal with the problem.
