Yes, that used to be done all the time. It was called the Mega Standings.

It's basically similar to a "best of the year" show. You'd have two guys "presenting" it and going through some of the best...and worst matches/promos/segments written over the past year (or, perhaps, from the start of BTB to the current day, but the past year would make the idea more "repeatable" in the future). If possible you could even have several different guys present different segments, rather than just two main presenters. Just to clarify what I'm suggesting is less like us "real" members talking and more like the whole thing being presented with 'characters' like in the old WF BTB.

Just a thought. It'd take some time but if people like it I'd be willing to help. Like I say though, I think it'd only work if certain people wrote it.
Not a bad idea to be fair, would have my support.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

The one thing I would say is that whilst it's a cute idea, I do think it'd be better done when the section picks up a bit of pace. I think the place is undergoing a bit of a change and eventually, there will be a new crop of guys that appear and may kick the asses of people like myself back into shape.

An interview I'd say is fine, but a BTB Newsletter seems a bit pointless without much to really talk about and such a lack of interest.

you mean like a BTB version of "Slammy Awards" or something along the lines of that?

And Stojy - I wouldn't mind helping out and doing an article in the newsletter if you are in a shortage of members.

I deliberately omitted the word "awards". I guess the format would be similar but it's not an "awards" idea, it's more of a look back at the best and worst of the past year, hence why I linked it to a "best of the year" show.

As I said before though, my idea is for the 'characters' of users to 'present' the story in the thread, not users talking as themselves, presenting it.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

That's a good idea. Again, willing to support if it's getting started up.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

I'm all for it, Kingpin.

Nice to see all talking about these things. Stojy or whoever else is thinking of running a Newsletter, I think I'll throw my name in that hat to help any way I can if anything might be needed. Although I do kind of share DC's sentiment on that in that perhaps we should do it when the section picks up a bit. Of course, we can't predict if it will pick up and we run the risk of not capitalizing, but I guess it wouldn't hurt to start working on it for when that opportune posting time comes.

And while we're kicking up discussion on all these sorts of things, anyone know if KOP or anyone was thinking of doing the HOF this year? It's not a priority, I understand, it's just I haven't seen someone take a stab at it quite yet.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

By the looks of it, the section is picking up SLOWLY, judging by the incremental rise in activity in this very thread.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

That's because we're awesome.

If only we could drive this sort of activity into the activity of writing.

The sad truth is, I've come to the realization I just can't be fucked.
