This thread is a major boxing history lesson for people in the future. If all goes well maybe IB Junior can read up on this thread in a couple decades

Indeed.

Is someone actually saving the content of these threads ? You're never in the lee of a crash.

I've had more people requesting that I make this a sticky, which is now actually within my power to do...



I don't know, it would feel a bit skeevy declaring my personal thread that's a collection of my other threads important enough to stick at the top of the first page of the forum.

With the "T.K.O. in 6", it is a public service and not as self-indulgently masturbatory as this could come across. The 2012 Olympic Boxing thread deserved to be sticky on a temporary basis for the duration of the games, which it was. So I'm not against making my own threads sticky on principle or anything...but this one seems it could be perceived as a bit too much of a ****fest...even though it does serve a practical purpose and several people have suggested/requested that it be sticky...

What do you all think?

Definitely should be a sticky thread.

Just my humble opinion.

This is something else that has been suggested by numerous others, and it's a sound idea but a huge undertaking. I was far more gung-ho about tackling this project before the infant entered the picture.

Maybe when he's off to college there will be time for me to set about all that copying & pasting. (assuming there are no more epic crashes in the next two decades..)

While I understand your hesitation, and appreciate your desire to avoid appearing conceited, having easy access to a thread like this would be invaluable.

As a possible work-around, maybe just change the title to "Chronolocgical RBR" without mention of your name, specifically; and include a section devoted to RPR threads created by the likes of DemoltionDan, Samurai, Bama, (and maybe even my one sorry attempt at doing an RBR thread )? While that would be a lot of work, it would ensure that this was a collective effort (which RBR threads tends to be in any event).

Optionally, you can just keep doing it this way. We'll read 'em regardless of your choice.

Some mod kept editing the "IB" portion from the title, repeatedly like a hundred times, and I kept changing back, in a quiet neverending struggle...until very recently.

Of course I say "some mod" when it's pretty much a no-brainer that it was a certain recently excised female moderator who held a mutual loathing for me...

So if for no other reason than as a monument to the spirit of persistence and an eternal to that person, I'm leaving that bit in.
