Not too much. Working and I know this will come as a shock to you. But really enjoyed my first year as a full time substitute teacher.

That's sad.

You do realize if you continue down this road you'll end up like me one day.

That won't be good for anybody...

Two Bucks is better then one isn't It? I really did enjoy it and considered going to get my degree in the field. Talk me off the ledge.

I've never taught 8th grade. Got my certificate to do so but never happened. Been teaching history since the beginning of time. It gets boring unless you find new and exciting ways to relate the material...usually by torturing them.

Even from my school days History fascinated me and still does. The only class I never fell asleep in.

Sadly know. A cynical prick could have been entertaining though.

I'm half clown/half teacher.

It's a calling. It's a gift.

I even offered Mike a mod role. I did everything I could and I cared. But ultimately, it's their decision, don't blame me...

Oh, and you know, I can't remember the last time I actually got some thanks for any of you appreciated the work I do. Maybe if you had better attitudes I might have more energy to do things, but you all beat me down just like the morale of the boards has been beaten down. I am only criticized and the only one who seems to get me now is Ellis. I know I'm not perfect, but I do some things right and it would be nice just once to feel appreciated...
BTW Marc...

Do you really believe if you lie with enough conviction that it will come true?

Even when you are addressing people who actually talked to the persons you've referenced?

Inexperience? How many admins do you know have run boards for 9 years? And I've served leadership positions on much larger forums in the past, providing more experience.
I stand corrected. You know it all...

And what exactly gives you the credibility to lecture me on experience and administrative duties running a site?
Like I said before, I stand corrected.

I was silly enough to think that about 38 years of sales, marketing, scheduling, ordering, hiring/firing, delegating, maximizing employee talents, trouble shooting, problem solving, etc., with 22+ years of those in my own business in the real world could somehow compare to the trials & tribulations of buying the vBulletin software with Dad's money & toiling hour after hour at home while 'constantly tweaking' a "life's work" on a sports site on the world wide web. Shame on me...

I stand corrected once again...

We have good mods in place on most of the boards. There isn't a need for more mods; there's a need for more regular posters. Mods are there to enforce the rules and keep things in order, but also be my eyes and ears and an extension of me. The site is too small to need all this bureaucratic organization and levels. With a few active mods, it's fine.
Yea, you listen and read well. Who said we need more mods?

Quote:
Again, this site simply needs posters to talk sports and quit worrying about things. These posts deter new members. Take some initiative and keep your chin up.
"Take some initiative""...& did you really say "keep your chin up"?
