Anyone else like to moderate? It is a well respected job. Lots of perks. Selection criteria is simple - you have to be almost conflict free / breach free in your history.

That just about omits everyone that holds any sort of strong conviction about anything, and those who have been baited to such an extent that they have bitten back.
An old umpire once told me that the best umpires were the ones who transgressed the rules frequently when they played. He figured that with such experience, they could easily pick out the difference between major and minor transgressions, and the difference between accidental and deliberate contact.
This is not a forum designed for the Good Sisters of Mary to read. It is for Saints supporters. We are a motley and eclectic lot, often given to intense frustration at our team's inability to win more than one premiership. The discussions should not be of the pious sanctity of the Convent cloisters, but the outer at Moorabbin, around where the bar-b-que used to be.
Quelling the spirit of the outer will lead to the demise of this forum.

What are the non-negotiable items in your mind? Would you be presenting your own non-negotiables to Damien and asking him to agree or will Damien just be invited to come on here and have an open discussion. For the record I think open discussion should be how we move forward and that includes all questions asked of Damien and his responses.
The other element is that the constitutional panel should have voices from a wide cross section of posters - old / young / male / female / new / old etc
Absolutely, and by constitutional panel do you mean the 7 person board up for proposal? In any case I think it would be a good idea to initiate the survey of as many SS members as soon as possible and ask them the simple question of "do they want to participate?". If they respond with "yes" then they should be added to a list of members that have explicitly stated that they wish for their voice to be heard. Otherwise we may start debating items that are supported without little fact or figure or just not be representative of the general SS community.
The panel MUST be prepared to meet around a table to discuss and develop the constitution UNLESS they are interstate and even then we could use skype
Again if we are talking about the proposed 7 person board then I personally agree. I also think that the agenda for these meetings should be communicated and the discussions minuted and/or open for public viewing in some way, similar to the transparency shown in most local councils.
youve gone from nothing to making it as complicated as hell
just update the f****** forum into the 21st century and appoint some mods
constitutions and meetings
i mean seriously? bit over board isnt it
just update the place

Maybe once we've done this we can also form a body corporate?
Once that's been tackled, maybe there'll be time to take on updating the functionality of this place ??

A 7 man board to run a fan forum, there's some lateral thinking. Edward would be impressed.
How is one meant to keep up with all the developments, takeover bids, the impending lobbying for a seat at the board table.
This could be more interesting than the game itself.
hoping that your family situation is being taken care of by yourself and that all is going ok
look forward to seeing you about the place soon
to all other admin
it seems youve done nothing to help simon in his quest to improve the site
no one took over the mantle when he had to go away for family probs
maybe you have issues yourselves, i dont know, and certainly hope not
someone needs to contact the owner of this site and see if he wants to either be a part of it or not.
one bloke cannot do it all
