    becuase someone doesnt understand how things are done!

    Someone started a Thread about the Game many days before the game even started. Then someone made that thread a "PREGAME" Thread.

    Then someone started a Gameday thread, then someone merged the PREGAME THREAD into the GAMEDAY THREAD, then they changed the name to make the PRE GAME THREAD the GAMEDAY THREAD.

    So if you want to start the gameday thread now, you now have to do it 2 weeks in advance to beat out the someone who likes to create all kinds of threads!

    I've merged the "pre-game" and game-day threads since the "pre-game" threads started. Simply b/c folks end up talking about the gameday stuff in both, this way everyone is having the same conversation in the same place.

    There was no re-naming of the gameday thread, I just added the posts from the pre-game thread to it and kept the game-day thread name.

    Those who want ot discuss the game before the game-day thread is created have their thread - on game-day the tradition lives and once folks start talking about the game in both threads I just move the pre-game posts over.

    Is there a problem with that?

    Well to keep the integrity of the day game thread, I vote that Syd is the only moderator allowed to merge any other thread with the game day thread. It is imperative that the Game day thread does not get contaminated by other threads. It takes a special mod to understand when it is safe to merge an inferior thread with the game day thread…Syd is that moderator. Proof you ask? Well I believe we have won every game sense the thread merger has started….what I know for sure is the BOLTS have a EIGHT GAME WINNING STREAK! :yes:

    I don't really have a problem with it....although it has been my experience that the threads have not been merged.

    That's not a complaint of any sort, I just don't remember them ever being merged.

    In fact, the entire reason this thread exists is because I have been posting "why are there two threads?" in the pre-game not merged thread every week since the winning streak started and I didn't want to quit now since it's apparently working. :lol:

    we are just people who come here, and have been here for a few years now.

    Tradition dictates some things, but who cares anymore.

    So with all that crap, we now have next year’s opponent’s can I start a Gameday thread on those guys now and just keep bumping it?

    H8er... I just don't understand what the big deal is. I don't mean that to dismiss you, I'm just trying to understand what the issue is.

    As I see it, no one is preventing tradition. Some folks did start threads to discuss the game the week of, but that's just like "raider week" threads - they are not the game-day thread and the semantics around the thread title has been taken care of.

    Why does Radio Shack ask for your phone number when you buy batteries? I don't know.

    I am not sure if it means anything. Some people get set in their ways and any change to them is bothersome.

    I am sure it will blow over, the Chargers will erase any of these small issues.

    So lets all get our Chargers grove on and do the ELECTRIC BOOGALOO! :abq2: :abq1: :abq2:
