Housekeeping

Wednesday, May 6th, 2009

Just a quick housekeeping note for you guys. I have been fiddling with ways to allow people to best use the comment section. I’ve settled on the quick tags plugin. For those who don’t know HTML, using this plugin should help. If you want to use the gray box (or any of the other tags)

1. Click the tag (i.e. b-quote for the grey box)
2. Paste or type your text
3. Click Close Tags
4. Resume mindless rant about why Ryan Theriot is good / bad

Finally, here is a you tube video for your enjoyment that goes with the housekeeping theme.

A Quick Review of Commenting

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

Lately we’ve had some heated discussions of the merit of Jake Fox, the ability of Ryan Theriot and the reliability of rechargeable vs. non-rechargeable batteries (not actually, but that may be a good discussion).

As is the case when people have disagreement, words are said that shouldn’t be said. For example, instead of saying “Pablo, you’re an idiot saber nerd….Ryan Theriot is a god”, a better way to handle it is to simply continue to make your case without the ridicule against the commentor.

I really like the disagreements we’ve had over the players we’ve been talking about, particularly Jake Fox. Let’s just try to get along. As far as the language, I’m trying to be more lax with that. Just keep it somewhat PG. Don’t be dropping any f-bombs and things of that nature and we should be good. In the meantime, carry on.Herbie Rides Again release

We Want You

Monday, May 5th, 2008

With the addition of diaries to the site, it’s apparent that reader interaction is our priority. Our readers are good thinkers and know this team. With that being said, I wanted to make the readers aware of a spot open for game recaps. I am looking for someone to write two recaps per week to ease the burden on me, which would allow me to focus on providing more editorial coverage, breaking news, and farm focus.

If you are interesting in pursuing this opportunity, send me an e-mail to joe@viewfromthebleachers.com
