Yancy, now that you have admin' powers do you still need the Squid move PotG threads that you've closed? Squid will be happy to accomodate whether you prefer to move them yourself or let the Squid do it.

I love that the Squid talks like Mr T

Actually, I model GSLC after Rickey Henderson.

Correction: That's the GandMGSLC

I can do the moving and the closing.

Especially during this period when I'm trying to get May re-voted. It's a juggling act; I don't want to flood the main forum with beer, but I want to get each May game voted. So I'll be rotating sets of games in and out.

So far it seems to be working.

As I re-open the threads to save them at the old CPF, It's striking me that closing isn't really necessary. If you record the votes as of a certain post, and announce the results, why is it necessary to end the conversation? It's not like anybody's ever contested a vote.

You have to close the voting at some point, though, or else people could go back and add votes, which means someone would have to go back to the monthly totals, and that would just change everything. Not worth it, methinks. Might as well just close 'em and make it official.

If the final tally is annouced in the thread by Yancy (or whoever) any changes would be irrelevant. If somebody insists that the final total doesn't refect their vote, gently point out that there is a stamp noting that their post was changed at an hour subsequent to the official closing of the vote.

Do you mean that locking the threads is unnecessary? That, I agree with, for the reasons you stated. I think I confused "closing" and "not allowing anyone else to post at all."

You're right; it's probably not necessary to lock the threads.

For the moment, though, I'm using the lock icon in the 2005 POTG forum to help me remember which May games I've presented in the Baseball Forum and which ones I haven't. When the dust settles from May I suppose I should (and will) go back in and unlock them.

I also might temporarily lock a POTG thread while I'm doing the final tally for that game.

But your point is a good one. There's no need to choke off further conversation. Although realistically, once it's moved to the POTG forum, few people are likely to comment.
