By the way, as for the idea of this thread...one thing that occurred for me is that when I opened this thread I read one of the posts from a thread I never bothered clicking on because I figured the dialog/commentary on the topic was gonna be both repetitive and juvenile...but after reading it in this thread I could see I was mistaken. So this type of thread does have the advantage of letting people like myself who automatically skip over, say, the latest "Why McNabb Will Succeed/Fail" thread to discover that one of those threads was actually well written, well thought-out and interesting.
dang I don't remember this thread lOL
Glad to see the TRUE ESers, as in the regs of this forum, can see what is up and can vote appropriately.
Only if I am allowed to sticky my own threads.
To me READ ME threads are for informational purposes and not for real discussions.
I think this is a great idea. ES makes me proud to be a Redskins fan a lot of the time, and it's awesome that there's a way to show people who are new here the kind of quality discussion we have on this board.
Thanks Mark for making yet another great thread to make this site better.
I think it would give the "fly by nighters" something to aspire to. With that said, I think many of us feel our opinion is second only to TK, so I would like to see a way where a someone could not sticky their own post. Also, do we consider their overall number of posts? A grading system which would acknowledge good posts from Cheerleaders, Bench Warmers, etc?
I think if this was done correctly, it would improve the boards overall, and save time for many of us who dont want to read back and forth bashing all day.
I'm strongly in favor of the general idea. It's become much too hard to find the scattered insightful posts (which do still exist) amongst the chaff.
How about this, as a compromise that retains the benefits of such a thread being moderated while imposing much less burden on the mods: have a "Nominated Noteworthy Posts" thread (in the Tailgate?) in which all users can nominate posts for potential inclusion in a separate, perma-stickied "Noteworthy Posts" thread. Mods would periodically go through the Nominated thread and multi-quote into the Noteworthy thread the posts they think warrant inclusion (and could also put in any other posts they felt like including).
While this two-tiered process is a bit complicated, the complexity has the benefit of tending to screen out the knuckleheads who would be most likely to nominate dross.
I was hoping to get it up to 60% by moving it here, and I'm happy to see it up to 70% as of now.
The perma-sticky thing won't work because we have too many threads to perma-stick already. So most of those threads reside in the Feedback Forum.
I personally don't mind the "burden." The trick is getting people to nominate a quality post. This thread has existed for thirteen months, and so far we have a grand total of zero nominations.
The posts in the OP were found by me, and I know there are dozens I have missed, but I can't read everything. Also, I know my opinion is not necessarily shared by all. So I invite the membership to nominate a post when they see one. Just PM me.
I am unsticking this now - until next time. Thanks for your votes!
This link is all you guys will ever need.
Does that mean there are no quality posts!?Originally Posted by TK's Link
Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms.

Follow me @KDawg_ES on Twitter. It's a bundle of X's, O's and Laughs. Both at me and with me
Big yay here. Also, please get an f'n suggestion board so EVERY thread is quality and moderated.
Part of the fun is digging through all the dirt to locate a diamond.
The more posts available and made prominent, like the "chalk talk" type posts KDAWG and other posters make, the better. Really adds to the great content at ES.
