Regarding the name changes; it'd be cool if the mods here took up the names of the bosses from Cool Hand Luke. :D

I have these names collected for initiation into the MVP club - thanks to everyone who donated this year! (Still not too late).

If you donated, want the MVP badge of honour and don't see your name on this list, let me know!
If you 'forgot' to donate and see your name on this list, get on it.

If the Corner raises $$ to their cover costs to third parties, great job all.

But I am sure donations are still appreciated. There is labor involved in moderating, there is the potential for upgrades in the future, and I'm no Canadian lawyer, but I imagine there could be some risk being taken on as well. And if that extra scratch gets used for "free" coffee and donuts, well, good! Lots of us would gladly buy a round as a modest recognition for hosting this community.

All donations go straight to Brian to cover his out of pocket costs. I'm not sure if we're 100% there yet, but I've been harping on everyone for a week.

Without these donations, Brian wouldn't have much incentive to keep the site going 'just for us' at $500+ a year. He has moved on from hockey interests to concentrate on his Lions site. Us mods volunteer a bit of time removing spam and bots and reminding posters where 'the line' is.

There is a slight legal risk involved to the site and years ago the Corner was named in a suit for defamation due to a poster repeating online rumours - so we strongly discourage that kind of talk. In that vein, we're also trying to keep the site balanced between free speech and current cultural norms. For a lot of us old guys, that can be a challenge. ;) So there's still work to be done in that area.

Thanks for everyone's support, cooperation and time in making this a fun community.

And a final note - this is just a goddam hockey board™, don't take things so seriously or personally.

If the cultural 'norms' are based on the posters here, we are fine. If it's based on non-canucks fans, we are so screwed!

Took a little WD-40, but it was worth it. Should be a little easier to open next year. ;)
