    We need some volunteers. I plan on sprucing things up here but I’d like to know who would actually help with the following:

    – Interviews: We have been approached by a handful of authors/influencers who would be open to an interview, I don’t want to do the interview but would rather someone from our forum do the honors. Volunteers?
    – Reviewers: If the bootleg section is going to takeoff, we need more reviews. Who is up to the task?
    – Historians: Those of you who know more than just the Stones trivia… which decade/time-period would you consider yourself most knowledgeable? If we were to put together a proper and detailed timeline of the Stones, the music, etc, which section would you like to help out with the most? Personally I think I would be most helpful in the 77-83 and 97-07 periods.
    – Forum: Who would you nominate as a forum moderator? Yes, this is an ‘inmates running the asylum’ type of site, but that doesn’t mean it is unmoderated.

    Thoughts?

    Having done some already, I could do more bootleg reviews — in fact, you still have a couple that I sent you (Get Satisfaction, Taxile).

     

    For the timeline, I could be very helpful with the ’64 to ’69 period.

    Maybe we should have a weekly or monthly “partychat”. Playing a Stones record and saying our thoughts on the chat while drinking a few beer’s, smoking a few…………I enjoyed the listening partying with Virgin Priest, and the live chat’s was kind of funny when the submit button worked, why not give it a try ?

    About moderating, as long as it ain’t moderating on a BV level, i’m happy

    –I could do interviews. I’d prefer to interview dead Stones via seance but could also I suppose in a pinch interview live people, too.

    –I could bridge the gap between Stonehearted and you and cover, say, 69-77.

    Sorry Drake i missed this encouraging post from you, i only saw the negative one on the END thread.

    I could do the Stones from 07′ up to the present date if that helps,  and i would nominate Nita as a moderator.

    I would nominate Stonehearted as another moderator.

    Good luck guys.

    Though I do like to take life in moderation, I would never take on the role of moderator for any online forum. I’ve been told that anyone who has held that role here winds up being cursed. I can do my best work here in other ways. Thanks anyway for your vote of confidence.

    Drake, I’m not smart enough to contribute anything much worthwhile…but I’d like to take this opportunity to suggest that the dear munichilton (was it one “h” or two? be somehow brought back to us and installed as the head of the Language Arts Department, a.k.a. the old “HAIKU THREAD” which he originated and tended to diligently and always, always so politely.

    he he Riffhards and thank you, but seriously i can never do that, i ain’t gonna moderate anyone, i have to learn moderating myself. My sister asked me at a family dinner recently if the latest Stones tour was named after me, and everybody laughed and have fun on me he he I think we should think controvercial and invite OnlyStones back as a moderator. And i see Tauk mentioned MunichHilton, hope he will be back and take care of the snack machines

    I would be up for doing interviews occasionally.  I think I could do a decent job, especially if people here gave me input on what sorts of questions to ask, if needed.

     

    Maybe LongerBeach and I could split them, depending on our interests.  🙂  I’d also be open to doing an interview about my book on RS fans and other related work.

     

    ‘Nita, that’s hilarious, the tour was named after you!

    It is … though I would defer to anyone who actually saw them in 69. I didn’t see them till 72.

    Angeeee–is your book a work-in-progress or is it done? If so, can you provide a link? (Sorry if you’ve been asked this before, but I’d really like to read it, and then perhaps interview you.)

    Hey, how sweet.  It was finished and out late at the end of 2014.  Thanks for asking, SB!

    I’d be glad to do the interview with you,  if you feel like it after reading.  Drake had talked about me doing something similar a while back.

    Cool. Let me figure out how I want to read it. I’ve given up on my Kindle but may download it to my iPad and go through it there. Thanks for the link; will keep you posted!

    Drake wrote this in his opening post here : ” Historians: Those of you who know more than just the Stones trivia… which decade/time-period would you consider yourself most knowledgeable?

    So I say ask Dreamer to return. It was Dreamer’s idea waaaaay back when EOMS was starting up to have Decades/Eras/Sections of Time for people to post in. It’s a brilliant idea! Dreamer had the idea; perhaps he’d return. Perhaps he’d help set it all up? Just a thought……………>

    I’d like to volunteer to be the webmaster.

    Do I need any special computer skills or is a working knowledge of WORD sufficient?

    I also know a bit of EXCEL, if that enhances my candidacy.
