Doris -- I am curious about the existing skaters that need OP updates, and sorry if this has been covered elsewhere. Is this a request for the mods? The person who 'owns' the original OP?

If someone else wanted to update the OP, what would be the process for that? Would they just type up a document and send it to you, so you could paste it into the OP?

And another thing I am curious about: I noticed that several OPs in the Fan Fest are owned by a banned user (Liza Tuk, Shumo Uno, Alexander Petrov, Polina Edmunds, etc.) It's just a small thing and probably not really relevant, but a little distracting to see a great OP update inside a banned user's post. I am not sure what technologies vBulletin might allow to correct this, or if GS Staff has considered this at all. Just my two cents. :)

The easiest way to do an update for an OP that you don't own is to append it to the end of the thread, and Mrs. P or I will copy it to the beginning of the thread. Post to the Summer Fan Fest Update that you've done it and we will get on it quicker, but we will find it in any case.

I am not an expert, but the easiest way I know to give ownership of a thread to someone other than the current banned owner is for a person who posted on GS prior to the date the thread was started to agree to own the thread. vbulletin does not allow me to change the date of a post, so to get the first post on the thread to be someone else, I have to use a dummy post to do it. AFAIK, there is no way for a non-mod to do it without the assistance of a mod to merge threads. I use this method to get the yearly Programs thread to have all the data in 4 or 5 posts at the start of a thread that someone usually starts before I get around to it.

I will then copy that early post of the new owner over to start a new thread, then merge the fan fest with it., I will copy the OP (or at this point, the new OP owner can copy the OP, over the top of their post about whatever.

I am not sure that makes sense of whether there is another way to do it.

I could give the banned poster a new name, unban it, and a changed password, but people would be looking for who this WiliamofOccum or whatever that suddenly had over 2000 posts was. It is a lie, and I would not do it.

That does make sense, although I had to read it twice.

I wish I could help in one or two cases, but I'm not sure the date issue would work out.

Btw, one particular banned poster currently owns 8 active Fan Fest threads. Not saying that erasing someone's entire existence is in order here, but it would be nice to see some of the more high-profile OPs owned by actual participating GS members rather a banned poster who no longer exists.

Also, this would help in the spirit of spreading around the Fan Fests with many other posters, instead of looking like they are all created by the same handful of individuals. ;)

Ngl, if something could be done about that particular OP I would be grateful. As a fan of Shoma, for example, it chafes me that someone I remember as rather, er, trollish has their name right next to his every time I open it.

I am thinking of volunteering to do a thread, but am a bit intimidated by the task. How hard is it to find all the things going back years? My google-fu is not that advanced!

What you don't find, Mrs. P and I will fill in.

Give it a shot!

You could not take over Shoma's thread from the current owner, because the she started it March 15, 2014, and I don't think you were a member until April.
Do you have any others in mind?

BTW,some of this project is exactly because the OPs were never otherwise going to be updated with the current owner banned.

Oh, no, I realise that I couldn't take over Shoma's but I meant that if anyone else was willing and able that would be great. Such a sweet kid should not have to sit next to someone, er, not sweet, IMO. ;)

Okay, thanks, I will take my life in my hands and volunteer for Papadakis & Cizeron. It may take me a couple of weeks to finish though as I have a few large work projects on my hands.

When I posted that mini Fan Fest post for Marta Garcia in the Team Spain thread, I assumed that Sonia Lafuente already had her own Fan Fest thread. So, I was shocked when I subsequently discovered that she hadn't.

Sonia really deserves her own Fan Fest thread.

I am reluctant to start a thread myself, as I am already finding that managing 4 Fan Fests is going to be a big enough workload.

So, would anybody else be interested in adopting her?


As for the issue of sky_fly20 owning so many Fan Fests, there is always another option: un-ban him/her. Although I don't miss their extreme views, I do miss the information they were able to find for us.

(And that is coming from somebody who disagreed with nearly all of sky_fly's views!)

I will adopt Daniel (and maybe Moris). :) I'll try to post something later today.

Thank you!

Thanks for all you do!

I will try to start a thread for Sonia, although I am a bit up to my eyeballs right now.
