With the impending release of the All-Access VIP, I know people over here are worried about having an increase in Vol fans trolling the board. Even without the All-Access VIP, there has been some concern and a lot of you have asked that we make this board Vandy247 only.
I wanted to explain why I've kept the board open. Because this is a smaller site and still very much in growth phase, I want to keep this board as open as possible to keep it active, keep conversation going and encourage others to try it out. Most sites on our network that are member-only boards are sites that are among the network's biggest: Alabama, South Carolina, etc.
But here's how I hope to make this a place that yall can be comfortable and not have to worry about Vol fans or trolls from other boards staining this place. We're going to assign some volunteer moderators to help keep things civil for when I can't be around the board to police things.
Essentially as a moderator, your job would be to lock or delete threads that get out of hand and you would have access to ban users from other sites. It's pretty simple. I don't think too much policing will be necessary for Vandy247 folks but it will be a good safeguard against outside trolls.
Please let me know if you'd be interested in being one of our moderators and if you're someone that plans on being on this board a lot.

I could do it. I don't post all that frequently but I'm on here several times a day.

I am on this board constantly (admittedly more than I should be at work, haha). If you need an extra set of hands, I could help. I also tried emailing Dan at email@example.com to take advantage of the free until kickoff offer by switching from monthly to yearly, but I have twice gotten the dreaded "mailer-deamon, email not delivered" response.
Deputize me Barton. There would be a troll jihad unlike no other. The swift hand of justice would send them away from our boards and back to their own site, where they would be forced to endure the "insight" of their own idiotic, delusional fanbase.
Oh what's that, you come here in peace? BANNED!
You really respect what James Franklin is doing but... BANNED!
You do WHAT with boxed wine? 1) That's pretty sick chubbs. 2) BANNED!
Somebody educate me. I thought all-access meant you could read what was posted on other VIP boards but there was a limitation on your own posting there. If so, what is the limitation?
Edit: Okay, I read the FAQ. Many (most?) sites will be closed for outside posting, but smaller sites like ours will be open for outside posting, at least for now.

I'm interested. I mod at another site and know what it entails.

I'm interested if needed.
I can, too. I already read basically every thread...
I nominate Moto.
I could do it but I take shit personal sometimes so Id rather not. Moto is a great poster and would be a great moderator.
follow me on twitter @country_cookin
I'll "po'lease" them "sumbitches". Lol. Pick me hot Damn.

I vote moto too. He's the best poster on here that isn't paid.
Happy to do it. My fear is people being banned just for being a fan of another team. It has happened to me before. If someone gets a happy trigger finger then post will be from the same very few members of this board
My vote is for Dev. He might boot Vandy posters for not being hardcore enough, but they should have stepped up their game when they had the chance!
You da man, Dev!
You know it DC. Boot em all
I will visit your board, and expect you to visit ours, but I will never degrade those here, and your university.
I read the VolNation message frequently but rarely post. I know that's not really representative of the GV247 board but I'll take a gander once in awhile. The key is to not take what is said too serious. And to know that when you venture into enemy territory, it's likely there will be some negative things posted about the school you hold allegiance with.
I would suggest not going to the UT 247 board. The orange writing on the white and grey background is extremely taxing on the eyes
Sorry for the issue. Don't know if i gave you the wrong address or you just read it wrong but the email is support@247SPORTS.com (as opposed to @247.com).
Sorry for the confusion. I'll also have Dan reach out to you via PM.
thanks barton... I indeed read it wrong.... I got the PM from Dan.... I will be upgrading shortly. Thanks again!
