Maybe we should organize a huge "ESB homework" and ask every ESBer to copy/paste at least one of those threads ...

Because yeah, I really pity the one who does the whole thing by himself.

If you want, I could put your RBR's on the site I created. A bit like my breakdowns and what not.

****, that would be awesome.

Bear in mind, though - there are 542 threads to date...figure on an average of about 3-4 bouts per televised broadcast (running the gamut from one-and-done HBO WCB telecasts to PPV to sprawling 5-hour Euro spectaculars) that's like a couple thousand matches...meaning tens of thousands of individual round posts to highlight/ctrl+c/ctrl+v...

That's not even to mention the time-consuming process of sifting through the many replies generated in each thread that aren't round reports to get at them...

Yeah, I probably won't be able to get it all in at once. May'be a couple of fights here and there every once in awhile. The bigger fights that get thousands of replies, those won't be too bad. I'll just cut those out and just use that feature to get your posts only. So, that won't be too bad, just a lot of fights to get to....and I'll probably have to use up a few sections of the website just for the RBRs. Just to make it user friendly and what not.

That is probably wiser than what I had in mind, which was a massive ever-expanding Microsoft Word document.

What if it got halfway and my laptop went kaput?

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

External storage is an option of course, yeah, but I'd still be paranoid about something happening. Hurricanes or something.

At least online it's got a semblance of permanence...unless your host ****s you over.

Yeah, exactly, that's sort of why I wanted to create a little online website. A nice little home for my breakdowns and a nice little tribute to Kirk's thread.

Of course, I hadn't thought about the weebly website pulling the plug. That would suck, now, wouldn't it?

Just mind your monthly dues.


...and don't post any content that's liable to get them sued. I'm afraid that section you wanted to include illustrating your views on the Israeli-Palestinian situation will have to be left out for the greater good.

All right, so this is a little outline on what it would look like:

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Eh, so, what do you think?

Heck, that one fight takes up a lot of room on that one tab. Hmm, I mean, I'll put a few more fights on it, just to see what it looks like, but I'll probably ended up using a ton of tabs.

That is awesome.

Mainly because it magically happened without me lifting a finger...




Also, nice clean simple & professional look.

Yeah, that's all good. It's a free site.

Yeah, that's okay, I'm making a 1,000 page book on my views on that. It shall rock the world.

IB you completely hijacked my Olympic rbr thread and renamed yourself as TS and that one is probably in the top 10. Not cool.

Actually I merged several of the redundant General Forum 2012 Olympic boxing threads (including yours) of which mine happened to be chronologically earliest, and made before I was a mod. That is how merges work. The TS becomes whoever started the first thread chronologically among those merged.

Also, that isn't really a RBR thread (you'll note it isn't counted in the 1st page archive nor in the "all time top twenty most replied to" of proper RBR threads for pro boxing) as with the exception of the gold medal matches at the very end none of us did any really in-detail descriptions of the action. More of a "discussion thread". So your gripe is invalid on all counts.
