Pittsburgh area man organizes rally for Geauga Lake's Big Dipper

Posted Thursday, April 23, 2009 10:57 AM | Contributed by Jeff

David Mitchell of Cranberry, PA has organized what he is calling a "town hall meeting" to celebrate the Big Dipper at noon Saturday at the Veterans of Foreign Wars across the road from the former Geauga Lake Park in Aurora. It's for people to share memories of the park and the ride. Two experts on coasters will speak.

Slightly OT, but relates to Jeff's mention of "policing" in a way. I've noticed since the re-launch a major drop in locked threads, and a greater tendency to keep like with like (not a million topics for the same thing). I remember when something like Diamondback would have gotten at least six threads on the main page. So - long story short, good work to the mods and the members... :)

Can I close a thread
With high volume of haikus
And prove Gator wrong?

If I were to guess:
it takes more than one haiku
to get a thread closed.

You guys really want me to put an anti-haiku clause into the terms of service, don't you?

Haiku: red herring.
Meaning conveyed is meaning
enough for the 'buzz.

Could the self-policing have got better because of Jeff's video tours?

My ability to still post here is proof that people don't get banned for disagreeing. :)

The video about the forum has only been viewed eight times in the last month. It was viewed a lot when the site re-launched, but not much since then.

It pleases me that people see through the nonsense and drama though. There is a small but noisy group of people who think they have me and my intentions all figured out, but at the end of the day, the only real truth is that this is a fun side business that I happen to enjoy running. People have been predicting the demise of these sites for more than a decade, and yet, here we are.

I do gotta say, if Jeff ever did specifically ban haikus in his TOS, that would probably be unique for a website.

Even better if he wrote that section of the TOS in the form of a haiku... ;)
