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?
Do it.

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.

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.
