Hope we're just adding posters, no more to the core group.

Core group is set.

As mentioned, we will make group decisions on all important matters.

We are basically the board of directors, with Integ being the chairman as he created the site. I really believe in having all being equal, though. By voting and thinking rather than just acting on impulse, were far less likely to make any dumb mistakes, it also forces us all to be rationale and not use emotions in business decisions. I think ken does that all the time and it's not a good habit.

We need to get rid of some of the old threads. It has info about the "core" group and our plans. The new guys will be a part of it but it's basically us as the core. So they can't read that stuff or they'll want in, too.

Good deal

and I'm only chairman in the extent that I'll run the admin on here, but I want to stress that we all have an equal voice and must come to agreements as a team if we all want to work together for common good

We have a good group here and can do great things if/when we put all of our minds together

Well we should really decide exactly what we want to do with this place. Document our policies, rules, etc before we let too manty people know.


Remember that we ideally want to have a solid product before anyone really sees it.

Yup, all the core guys should absolutely be mods.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I do think we should run this place in kinda an Integrity style. We should try to be as respectful as possible to our posters and let them help us make decisions on things. That will really give it that community feel. There isn't really site out there other than OGD which basically lets the posters make choices about what goes on. I really think we should be as light handed as possible with editing/deleting/moving threads. I really want people to speak their minds regardless if we agree with them or not, that has been sorely missing at EOG the last few months.

Locking that thread was absolutely uncalled for. That's the kind of thing I hate. What's next? A banning? Locking that thread only proved my point.

Just so you guys know, I'm not going to be pumping money into this thing unless everyone else does. If we're going to be all "equal" then let's all put in equal money.

If no money is put in, then I have great ideas on making some. Fairly simple as long as people aren't lazy.

Of course bud.

I assume that Integ will be running the finances with my assistance since I am an accountant and did financial planning for Microsoft. We will cross the money bridge when we get there. Most of the costs till we really go live will be nominal.

When we have our first meeting (I think tomorrow?) we will certainly address the money issue. We can also think of some things that we can do before we actually have traffic to bring in some $ to offset expenses. I have spoken to both Chute and Integ and they have 2 ideas that should fairly easy to implement and should do alright for us.

We should also address what us mods should do, how she should position this place, who should be around at what times, etc. There will be tons to talk about, everyone will have some questions and concerns we can discuss so we are all on the same page.

I really think the group we have her is an amazing management/operations team. We have fairly diverse personalities and backgrounds. I honest believe in what we are doing 100% and I hope you guys do as well. If we all try our best to make this place great, I think it will be just that, great.

No need to lock stuff, we are all adults here.

Or, as Mo would say-

Fuck you you faggot ass bitch kinger. You are nothing. I know all, and know you are a bitch.

I'm approaching this as a business venture. Why should I put money into something while you sit back and lock threads and I can't even look at some of the HTML stuff? I'm not going to put money into anything where I have no say. If we're all truly equal then we all put in equal money. That's how business works. If someone puts in more money than another person then that person has a higher stake in things. Economics and Business 101. That's all I'm saying.

yeah... i figured if he had something else to say, or u guys, he could unlock it

in my view the lock was the end of the thread since he said he was done

i guess he wasnt

but i offered up an explanation/apology on the thread and it seems he didnt accept it

whatever

Hahaha.

Yeah, I was looking at some of the other boards. They have some fantastic layouts and better colors. If we made this site even better looking it would appeal even more to the new comers. They'd say, "Ok. These guys are serious about this" and be more into it.

I think Razz should be the next newcomer. As long as we know that he's not getting paid - which I doubt. The guy has IDEAS like no other person I know. Very smart guy, too, as you can see from his writing.

Threads that mention the core group must be erased though. But I feel he should be next. What do you guys think?

Completely agree that at some point we should consider even paying for a 'nicer forum', yet another down the road sort of thing to do.

Once I am able to gather all the data and pricing stuff I need, I will do some forecasting spreadsheets for everyone to take a look at. I will run some different senarios, with different business models and we can see what makes the most sense. We have to be realistic, and, most importantly very very cautious about the laws.

I was even thinking of possibly forming an LLC and putting it's name on any paperwork he will eventually have to do. Most importantly probably is making sure the domain is registered to a company, rather than one of our names. This is very gray area of the law. I have a friend who is lawyer who be will be able to occasionally ask for help on little things here and there. I have a small retainer on file at his law firm that we could use to consult one of his associates who has a little back ground in online gaming laws.

This forum here was always just to be the gathering place

When we 'open for business' so to speak, we are def gonna need a diff forum

This one here is just for planning/meeting getting everyone together- Forming our Union

Then we yield our power over the forums-- and when we have great momentum, unleash our REAL site and have that open up successful

Absolutely agree, the more I think about it, the better I think he would be here.

Very smart guy, and if I know ken, he is probably only letting Razz do like 1 out of many things he has asked to do for EOG. I was thinking perhaps since our core group is now locked, we could think about using the fact that he can use this place as an outlet to implement some of his new ideas. What do you guys think about that? I think we really need to think how to go about getting people to be loyal, and work hard to make this place good, without $ necessarily being the incentive. We should all think what manner to approach each person.

We really gotta be careful about the initial people we get over here as they will truly be our 'core group of posters', right? The guys that get in at the ground floor will be happy they did, as they can grow to be the respected poster, I really think the most important thing to make that happen is to NOT have anyone be heavy handed with Mod powers. Seen so many of the best posters leave one site or another simply bc a mod abused his powers. I hope we never lose a single poster to that. Each one is potential $ for us, remember that before you light someone up, or move their posts.

I agree but I think a nicer forum here would show that we mean business.

These other forums that I'm looking at with the better layouts are all free. Some good stuff going on. Same website that we have going on here just a different skin and other features that we can use. It makes the place look a lot more serious. Just my 2 pesos but if we keep it this way - that's fine. I just think putting a little more thought into the forum shows how serious we are about this. It can motivate the new guys.
