OBD Forum is Back! What to KNOW...(Please Read!)...and NEW Introductory Video to View!

Recommended Posts

Charles, what do you provide us, the Members of the OBD Forum?

 

--I provide the forum platform, (the thousands of dollars spent originally and now with reinstatement) along with a ton of work and time to get it back up and keep it going.

 

--A free forum offering protection from those out there who are mean to others.  This is a big gift to so many, as the absence of aggression and tension is nice to read in all our posts.

 

--Directions on how to do everything, which is something you don't see on other sites.  It is frustrating to me, in how easy everything is ... if you know how to do it. I am not "tech-intuitive," thus I need someone to show me. My directions are meant to help the vast majority, but you also have to do your part and check with them before emailing me please. (See link to Directions in upper panel on front page)

 

--As Media Credentialed, I will pass along the official Oregon Sports press releases which will give you some of the “news” each day about Our Beloved Ducks.

 

What to Know:

 

--Everything is created for YOU, the OBD Forum member. So many of the rules, the methods with some of the tasks are all created to make your experience at OBD Forum that much more enjoyable and easy.

 

--We have directions for using this forum where each task only takes 1-2 minutes to learn, and only seconds to actually complete the task—once you know how to do it.  It really is easier than you would think, and do check out our short intro videos coming out soon too!

 

--Don’t have a picture for an Avatar/Profile Picture?  (What everyone calls an "avatar" elsewhere--this software calls "Profile Picture.") For those who do not have an Profile Picture--I will pop in an Oregon helmet, but there will be a ton of duplication. Yet it look will look better than the duplication of tons of capital letters for put in automatically for Profile Pictures. (A Profile Picture is the picture or letter next to your Posting Name when you post.)

 

--The Moderators have light green colored posts, while your administrator will have light yellow colored posts.

 

FishDuck Members: Will you do YOUR PART?

 

--Know the rules and follow them. Make it easy on us as over 99% of all FishDuck members have.

 

--Fill out your Profile and help me to help you. The public does not see anything but your Posting Name!

 

--Bring Oregon Sports News to the forum for everyone else. Bring article links too!

 

--Flag any posts that you see breaking our rules; you have to follow the rules, so  let us know when someone else has broken them!

 

--Start threads about interesting items you are pondering. Get a discussion going!

 

--Post your opinion, don’t just read all the responses.  Jump in, as the water in this Duck Pond is just fine! 

 

--Volunteer a little time.  I work during the day and I can only provide my part of this; can you do your part?  Are you retired?  Can you spare a few hours out of the 168 hours available each week to help this special site?

 

--Frustrated with a loss?  Please read here, and remember we don't go after fellow devoted Duck fans who may disagree with you.

 

Charles, why are you doing this when you announced you are “Retired?”

 

Articles on FishDuck:  On July 20th, I did not announce I was retiring, but instead that the daily articles would discontinue due to the workload.  Since that time the writers and I have come to an agreement that allows them to write, and yet I do not have the duties I had prior to July 20th.  Hence nothing has changed for me personally with FishDuck since July 20th.  I do not have the extra duties of the prior ten years and the writers can write—everyone wins!

 

Our Beloved Ducks Forum Returning:  There are three reasons why I brought back the forum that was up originally from late December until mid-March this year, as things have changed since last March.

 

--1. I now have help to begin again, as last March there were not enough volunteers for moderating to continue. This time, due to recent events, a number of people have come forward in the beginning to help make the OBD forum possible once again.  If I have just a few people helping—it can happen, and now it is. Please consider helping out...

 

--2. There is a real need for a free Oregon Sports Forum (Message Board) where you can discuss all the topics of the day in peace. A forum that has every post read and checked, and protects everyone from the nastiness of the rest of the world.  A place that is truly a GREEN REFUGE.

 

--3. Mr. FishDuck did not have anywhere to go to post his thoughts on items not related to the daily articles on FishDuck, as there is so much to discuss, but there was no safe forum for him. He wants access to a safe forum too!

 

Do I Have to Choose Which Site to Belong To?

--Of course not, since I have been a member of other sites for 20 years, although I do not post on them any longer.  Conversely, anyone who wants to join the OBD Forum can certainly do so, regardless of past history on other sites or with FishDuck. We can all start anew!

 

Watch the Introductory Video below, as I GUARANTEE you will learn something!

I gotta admit that with all the flaws...it is amazing.  So much upside!

Yep, and it was putting pressure on me, because when you average over 100 comments a day from Saturday through Tuesday--it means this community is SO READY for a forum where everyone is safe to post what they want.

 

Great to see you!

Glad to have this forum. I'm an original eDucker that has missed good old Duck interactions and info. Thank you very much.
