Getting Our Bearings

Hey everyone. So as you have surmised, I was asked (politely) to make Wednesday my last day of work at the Advertiser. Nobody should be upset with the Advertiser; they are keeping to their word and sending me on my way with what they agreed to give me. No hard feelings.

I am hopeful that Brian Woodham, who recently left a part-time gig with ITAT to take a full-time job as a copy editor at the Advertiser, will be given an opportunity to take my old job. Brian would be a great addition. I'll let you know if I hear anything about that.

As I explained on Facebook, we will have a board at AuburnSports.com with a stricter standard when it comes to cussing and any off-putting shenanigans. Personally, I'm good with the Bunker and have read it for a long time. They get a little upset when things don't go well, which is understandable, but I feel like that board's reputation for savage commentary far exceeds reality.

With that said, we will have a HABOTN-esque board over there for people whose tolerance for cussing is at zero. Just want to make that clear.

I'll be starting at AuburnSports.com on Monday.

Take care, errybody. Thanks as always for your support!

Someone did bring up an interesting question.

To clarify an earlier comment of mine. I don't understand why they blocked JayG from being on 2.0 all together.

It does sound like a very corporate thing to do. But a nonsense type of thing.

Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I don't understand that, Bubbs.

A former co-worker told me today that they're upset because I was steering people toward AuburnSports.com.

The HABOTN and Advertiser content is free online. And only a small percentage of the Hot Ones reside in the tri-county area.

I'm not mad, though. They're just trying to defend their most important online element. I get it.

Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Steve, I'd rather just lay low with the Advertiser. I'm not mad at them. I wish they hadn't given me an IP ban -- I think that's going too far -- but they haven't slighted me financially. They are doing what they said they would do for me.

My Official Stance® is that each Hot One make her/his own decision about what to do and where to go. The HABOTN community won't die or anything.

There may be enough room in everyone's life for HABOTN and the new place.

12:24 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Laying low for a little bit until things settle down makes a lot of sense. I am just glad this sight is still around so you do have a voice to the non-facebook hotties.

BTW - for those joining auburnsports, you can get a free subscription to auburnundercover (1-6 months depending on if your month by month or a yearly subscriber).

Here's what I think should happen for the multiple versions of HABOTN. JOMHO, BTW - take it FWIW. OK?

For those who have the scratch, 3.0 will be at the Rivals site and would more-or-less replace 2.0 as the go-to site for JGT substance.

2.0 would then become the blog of whomever the MA hires/designates/appoints as the new AU Beat Hack. It's their property, so they can do with it what they wish.


Personally, I'd like to see 1.0 reborn as Jay's personal non-AU oriented blog. Kind of a 24-7-365 Puppet Hour. Lose the MA ads in the masthead, but (hopefully) retain the archives, which are invaluable for umm, archival purposes. Unlike 2.0 or 3.0, he would have exclusive dictatorial powers - not unlike Michael or Dear Leader have in their respective empires.

Thoughts from the panel?

I've got no agenda. I'll just bounce around to wherever whenever. Right now that means 1.0 and 2.0.

I know everyone would like to know how things will shake out, or have marching orders, so to speak. But things rarely work that way.

We're just gonna have to wait and see how things shake out.

I understand why MA did as they did. Most companies have things in place for when an employee departs. That isn't a big deal normally, but when you are talking access to a forum they make public, it looks like they would have just removed Jay's admin rights. If they had just done that, I would say no biggie.

As for Jay trying to get people to auburnsports, he better. That is basically his job now. I don't believe he would do it by advertising in 2.0. He goes to other forums other than HABOTN and isn't spamming them with ads for HABOTN. Jay draws readers by excellence.

On 2.0, I reported a bunch of people to the moderator as a joke shortly before I was aware of Jay's removal as admin. So, you know, if you get your HABOTN account deleted by the new admin, sorry.

3:38 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

I think the important question is, who specifically did you report to the moderator? I mean, other than Steve of course.

4:08 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Jay, want to give us a heads up on what to expect from you for media days?

4:29 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I've got a better question. Who the heck is Sara?

4:30 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

Doc - my guess is that we know her mother well.

4:42 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

MiniWEG? Come on, help me out here. I don't know real names, only HABOTN handles. For example, I have no idea what your real name is, Norm.

4:48 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I just know you're from Johns Creek, GA, USA.

4:49 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

as an example, even in person I frequently call Cincytiger "Cincy" cause I'm afraid I'll call her Rhonda if I try to use her real name. Why Rhonda? I have absolutely no idea.

4:51 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

oh darn, I just realized we're more than 2 hours overdue for my predicted page flip. Rats.

4:52 PM  
Blogger bubbs said...

Switching handles does make it difficult to figure things.

For instance, if Art started posting under the name CincySteve, I would have no idea how to read it.

Come to think of it, I don't know what Art is talking about half the time anyway. So maybe that's not the best example.

Idiots.

Sara from earlier = SJT = My Wife. Wrong account longed in when I posted earlier. Sorry if I got all you dudes excited. I know what the presence of Carmela used to do to you all.

Blogger mytommyd said...

Gee, thanks for that let down Micahel

8:14 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

Guess I need to update a profile somewhere since I no longer live in either Johns Creek or Georgia.

8:47 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

So Norm's saying we know Machiel's mother-in-law? I've actually met Sara once a few years ago, but can't say I've had the honor of meeting her mother.

8:49 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

If MJT speaks the truth, then my guess was wrong.

9:04 PM  
Blogger Jet said...

I've been blocked from HABOTN!

Not really.

I thought we were working toward a page flip. We're more like a bunch of geezers waiting on the 4:30 dinner seating at Denny's.

10:18 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

I'm not exactly sleepy but at this pace I don't expect to sit up and wait for a page flip here.

10:24 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Let's worry about it tomorrow.

10:40 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

So will Carmella show up before it's time for Norm to flip the page?

11:46 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Jet, are you saying we are all invited to Denny Crum's for dinner?

11:52 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

I am so starved for football I am reading the bleacher report. If this keeps up, I will have to enter a 12 step recovery program.

12:20 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

We're definitely getting there a lot quicker than we did on the last thread.

Michael, that was exactly what I thought. It must be that great minds thing.

5:23 AM  
Blogger Norm said...

Morning.;

7:02 AM  
Blogger michael said...

Yeah, so what if it is, Norm?!

7:38 AM  
Blogger michael said...

Hey Norm, I looked on the internet, and in the comics the Flash is either tied with or faster than Superman in their various races.

7:49 AM  
Blogger Norm said...

Thanks MJT. I either didn't recall races or wasn't aware of it. It was a most serious question posed to me yesterday morning and I just didn't have an answer.

Blogger Eddie McCoy said...

Crow tastes pretty darn good THT. Given enough time, we all say stupid things when talking about the future because we all have no effing clue to what is really going to happen, whether we think we do or not.

8:03 AM  
Blogger bubbs said...

That's just because you don't own a Magic 8 Ball, Eddie.

Or MJT's astrological knowledge.

8:30 AM  
Blogger Eddie McCoy said...

True Bubbs.

Where is Norm? He better be getting ready, or he is going to miss his chance in the spotlight, and we know Norm never likes to be out of the spotlight on the big stage.

8:32 AM  
Blogger Norm said...

Shut up.

8:36 AM  
Blogger Norm said...

"Norm" is already in use on auburnsports.com

I wonder if I signed up some time back and forgot. Now I have to figure out something else.

8:37 AM  
Blogger Norm said...

"gatiger" is no longer accurate for me.

8:38 AM  
Blogger Norm said...

What to do? What to do?
