Aran's online interaction

I don't know how the rest of you feel, but it kind've bothers me that he runs the site & does not take time to interact with us on our thoughts/opinions. Like I said it would be great for the site, if he along with Adi, conduct a weekly forum Pod Cast to hear different users views etc. on certain topics.

Does it bother anyone else on the site that he does not acknowledge you when you are directing Threads, Posts, Suggestions to him.

I know he may be a very busy person, but doesn't he get paid to run this site? If so it should not be nothing for him to acknowledge us when we are reaching out to him.

What suggestion of yours is he ignoring?

Just wondering, there have been a ton of these types of post and I do not get the beef. He has responded to serious inquiries, and maybe yours are not? I mean, you do ask some google worthy questions. I think their is little need for him to address about Mock Drafts, as he posts his Mock Draft with comments and that he does indeed listen too posts and posters, maybe without directly responding, but he watches. If he didn't, than I would have never had an article posted on the main page, after Aran saw something I had written on the message board and asked if he could post it. Not to mention, as the draft is only a few weeks away, and the Euro Camp going on as we speak, it is indeed probably his busy season.

I'm not tryna bash him over

I'm not tryna bash him over the mocks at all.

I'm just tryna figure out why he does not interact with us.

I have no beef with him, I

I have no beef with him, I mean i was shocked about the mock draft recently but there is news that hes really impressed, plus knowing that this his job he probably knows a lot more then me, which i havent even ever seen kanter play just some highlights. How do you even message him anyways, since I never thought about it. Like Mikeyv said this is a pretty busy time leading up to the draft and all these workouts, I dont blame him for finding little time to actually respond or post anything on this site.

About what though?

You only talk about the podcast, if you are going to make this public, why not have actual suggestions and examples? I want to see why people are feeling neglected, just so I can maybe see if there are legitimate reasons why.

Also, scottoant or whatever your name is, I think there should be contact info somewhere on the bottom, and I am also pretty sure if you click on his link it may have his e-mail.

Tyga, what you want to know?

Tyga, what you want to know? I am in Treviso, Italy at Eurocamp. Watched Biyombo and Motiejunas workout today and a bunch of European level players. People that liked Biyombo before his workout probably like him still and people that liked Moti before his (like myself) probably still do. We see what we want see to some degree. Anyways neither had a great workout.

Sorry if I don't answer every inquiry on the forum.... If it's something urgent email me and I'll try to get back as soon as I can. There are times when I am too busy to stay up on the forum, so threads go thru without me catching them, unfortunately. i do read them as much as possible however. I appreciate you caring man.

Aran

Thank you for the feedback.......I'm sure you are a very busy man around this time of year, but could you give any thought to incorporating a Pod Cast for the forum this upcoming BBall season? I'm quite sure, I along with others would love to hear from you via word of mouth.(Don't be the mystery guy)

Whatever, Whoever is willing

Whatever, Whoever is willing to step up and do it..

If Aran didnt have the time before, hes not gonna have it now..

So, if your that interested in a podcast, then we, as a forum, should step-up and do it, it'd be great for the site, and just a cool idea...i'd recommend you since it was your idea, wouldnt you want to participate in your own idea?

I would not mind in

I would not mind in participating but I don't believe I would be a great person to host it..... Jorrye is one of the most likable posters on this site who has the BBall knowledge to conduct it.

Make one like every Thursday(for example)

But i remember QHaynes did something like this before...they had a problem getting people to tune in, very low count of listeners..

Im not gonna like tho, it was kinda boring..

I only tuned in to hear Jorrye accent... (:

Like I said after you felt like bashing Ron Harper and his speech probles, I'm sure you're the most well spoken individual.....lmao

"but it kind've bothers"

"If so it should not be nothing for him"

"I'm not tryna"

"I'm just tryna figure"

Dude

You use so many malapropisms in your ebonics, you should probably cut down on using them. Unless you are trying to be PLIES, you should probably just chill on that whole thing. Lord have mercy, Jesus Christ, he just nice, he just slice, like a Ginsu. We all love hip-hop and all, but you should probably just try to write posts unless you are writing rhymes or using things as clever wordplay. Just surra-sayin'.

The

The admins are always trolling the forums and paying attention to us.

In fact, I'm almost positive I ruined the ability to edit and flag posts as offensive because I heavily abused both of those features.

Now that I'm getting a

Now that I'm getting a macbook and such, I can add music and other good things into it. All I need

  • Co-Host
  • Your Backing
  • A little email side where we can get the people to leave questions

That's all I need, I can hook up a U-Stream, podcast page ( we need you to make one on the site), and whatever else needed.

BK Knick Fan

If you are serious you should ask Jorrye to help out, he is a respectable poster majority will love to hear from.......Not trying to bash you, but quite a few posters probably will not take you serious looking at your negative point total.

Only the noobs. I think most of us know that BK is a lot smarter than his point total indicates.

Lol why wouldn't they take

Lol why wouldn't they take him seriously??? That would be stupid to overlook him because of that. He's also had a podcast in the past. I'd be interested in being apart of the podcast, but as a co-host. I don't know how to create a podcast at all.
