I don’t think that AG’s should be running other AG’s off. This site needs clicks, not cliques. I hope Gonzo returns soon. It’s not like we’re gaining new guys all the time, FFS.

He’ll be back. Gonz may be a tenacious one topic poster, but he’s tough as nails. A little bickering ain’t gonna run him off.
He’s probably just gathering up more “stats”

Ok, so we end up with a few thick-skinned people here and everyone else can fuck off?

I don’t think AG wants natural selection going on here.

If AG were mine, I’d want it to be more inclusive for more clicks and exposure. I mean, we chased off pretty much ALL of the football writers except for Tony, who owns the site. AG is going in the wrong direction.

you CAN walk on eggshells if they’re unbroken AND standing on end, that’s how they’re scientifically the strongest, you can literally put a raw egg end-to-end between your palms and squeeze as hard as you possibly can and it will not break!

OTOH if that same raw egg is side-to-side you’re gonna have a mess on your hands … or feet 🙂

Tony’s a FOOTBALL WRITER? and here I thought he was an Engineer (and Titanic Logo Maker and Betting Analyst Par Excellance, not to mention he drinks Vanilla Coke and has a true addiction for Kettle Corn – gotta wonder about some people’s children) 😉

I’m with ya, MC … we (AGers) shouldn’t necessarily NEED “thick skins” … two can always play that game (it’s just WAY too easy) but that ends up getting snarky and divisive (we can all “take a joke” when it’s presented as “a joke”)

and all THAT said: 1) I’ve defended Gonz and his right to say what he wants (even he IS misguided on occasion, he does MEAN well and wants the Chiefs to win, as we all do), and 2) Nova’s right, he ain’t goin’ nowhere and he’ll be back around (maybe he’s just off gettin’ another Chiefs tat)

Not going to disagree with you, but somewhere there’s a happy median point. Somewhere, we argue but don’t fight personally. Somewhere we discuss current events (both with the team and not) and it doesn’t devolve into chaos. Somewhere we all self-moderate and think “Yeah, that’s funny but I’m still not posting it because it’ll just set X off”.
Either we get there ourselves, or someone is going to have to do it for us.

As to chasing off writers, can you give an example? Were we mean to them (I don’t remember anything like that)? Or do you think they don’t want to be associated with us (Groucho didn’t want to be a member of any club that would have him as a member, so there is that)?

I’m not sure if they were chased off or just kinda wandered away, but what happened to Adam (01lowbird, if memory serves) and Dan, the “Friday at the Movies” guys?

Maybe I’m being dramatic (probably), but here’s what’s on my mind.

lowbird left because of politics. Big loss.

Dan left for greener pastures. He’s doing radio, podcasts, and youtube now. Big loss but can’t blame him.

I do believe more writers and definitely more commenters left around the time we were having a lot of political fighting going on. Unknown loss.

Nate hasn’t written in a while, maybe because his articles are damn near ignored. Big loss.

Trelyday hasn’t written in a while. Big loss.

Sometimes it just seems a little ghost-towny around here. When I see people arguing over the dumbest shit ever to the point of one leaving (not just zulu and gonzo), it makes me sad for AG.

-1 for AG with no newcomers = sad.

First, Nate. ALL actual “articles” get little traction and comments. Also, I know they were good, and very detailed, but honestly, I don’t have that kind of time to read something that long. Break them up, maybe into 3 parts, and run them T-W-Th, the slow days. My guess is in bite sized bits, they’d get more discussion.
Next, concerning all the people we keep hearing have been run off: maybe we should have a poll. Do we want OT’s to include politics? Music videos? (Personally, scrolling through 50 vids gets a bit much. I say this knowing I add to the noise sometimes like, oh, today.) What do we want allowed? Verboten? We all (well, not ALL) have been guilty of posting stuff that is NOT inclusive. And they get the most votes in a day, so what do we do? Outside of Starry, do we have any active women members?
For the long term health of the site, do we agree to let certain things go? I can promise we will lose people over it with screams of Censorship.
If the majority of people think ANY discussion of politics is bad, ANY hint of religion is bad (I emphasis “ANY” because you can’t just be offended by people knocking your choice. If someone goes after someone else’s politics/religion/lack of either, you have to be equally offended) I’m willing to go with the flow and see what happens, but I don’t want to do it just because a few loudly complain (not directed at you, MC).
I like it here, I like doing the Huddles, if I knew a thing about what I’m watching, I’d write articles.
Thoughts?

I’m the guy who adds the most music videos. Sorry about that.

Like you, if I had more than a surface-level understanding of what I was watching, I’d likely contribute more, but as it stands I don’t have a horse in the race outside of die-hard Chiefs fandom.

Don’t apologize. We all join in, and you do post some nicely obscure stuff. I don’t want any of my points to make anyone feel like I’m pointing fingers.
For example, to make the site really inclusive, Morning Coffee should go. Now I ask you, who usually covers when the Top Barista is on vacation? Yep. Guilty.
I post videos and will continue to. You should, as well. When I get to an OT that has 200 comments and 125 are music vids, it’s overwhelming. Not your problem, though. You’re posting nothing out of line.

Also, I don’t watch football, I watch CHIEFS football. THere is a difference

Slight drift: Anyone know why something that’s pasted is a different font than stuff that’s typed? My question about Starry, I cut and pasted from a different spot for flow, and it looks different.

AG was born out of a censorship issue at AP, so I don’t want to go that route.

I did like having the politics/no politics option the other day. That gave those who can’t handle it their very own place to talk.

To me, the issue is just when it gets personal and people start talking shit and puffing up their chests. I’ve done it, so I’m not one to point fingers at individuals. I just think we should exercise a little bit of self control when the tensions start getting out of hand.

For the long term health of AG, the comments sections shouldn’t be uninviting to anyone that wants to talk Chiefs or anything else. There should be a healthy amount of freedom of speech, but without making others feel unwelcome. I’ve seen it many times, from overt arguments to secret downvoting of every comment someone might make.
