    1. This layout is uber confusing and doesn't look good. That's my main complaint.</p>

    If you somehow can get it back to the way BBW looked, I'm sure most of us will stay. </p>

    This is for wwb member and sportstwo members. You have to realise different people react differently to change. Sportstwo ppl, please realise this was done overnight without any heads up. bbw ppl are in shock today because they had no idea this was coming. Kinda like the colts bolting from Baltimore overnight. It will take ppl some time. Part of that time will be lashing out.</p>

    BBW, you can't be so harsh to judge this site. they've gone through a big change too with all these new members and the admins have to adjust and try and set this site up in better working order and a better layout. This will take some time too.</p>

    Here I found this from a quick search, it somewhat applies.</p><font face="Arial" size="2">"Reality is a state of mind.<span> </span>People don&rsquo;t see life as it is &mdash; they see life as they are.<span> </span>In making corporate changes, managers who understand the predominant traits of people involved can go a long way toward helping make proposed changes work. </font><p class="MsoNormal"><font face="Arial" size="2">The ability (or inability) to change is more than just desire, more than threats, more than rewards and more than just skill &mdash; it also involves basic human traits. You can increase the chance for effective change by identifying the various personality styles in your group.<span> </span>Here, we&rsquo;ll deal with five different perspectives, or outlooks, on life:<span> </span>surviving, learning, competing, relating and teaching."</font></p><font face="Arial" size="2">"</font><font face="Arial" size="2"> <p class="MsoNormal"><font face="Arial" size="2">Learning </font></p><p class="MsoNormal"><font face="Arial" size="2">Basic Attributes: These people view life through the limits of rules &mdash; needing someone or something to provide structure and tell them what to do.<span> </span>Life for them is very simplistic and follows a rather rigid pattern.<span> </span>Learning about rules is most important, to the point of aggressively defending what is &ldquo;right.&rdquo;<span> </span>They want everyone to follow the same rules and don&rsquo;t tolerate ambiguity, innovation or &ldquo;free spirits.&rdquo;<span> </span>A favorite activity is making rules for everyone else to live by.<span> </span>Those in positions of power can be quite demanding in their quest to enforce rules.<span> </span>Their motto is &ldquo;Do it my way or else!&rdquo;<span> </span>(About 15% of the US population.) </font></p><font face="Arial" size="2">Reactions to change:<span> </span>Overwhelmed, confused, thrown off balance, disoriented, disorganized, rioting, resistant.<span> </span>When they are faced with unexpected change, they may come apart.<span> </span>When faced with extreme change, they may become unbalanced and confused.<span> </span>They may react with belligerence and irrational resistance to even relatively small changes.<span> </span>For example, they might react to organizational changes beyond their control by attacking their boss or coworkers, by arguing or even fighting.<span> </span>They might become unable to do their normal job, due to their confusion.<span> </span>Resistance to lesser changes might show up as bureaucratic delays, calling in sick, losing important files or paperwork, or not doing their job competently.<span> </span>They may appear overly stressed, confused or angry to their coworkers, or they may withdraw and deny the change by burying their head in the sand and refusing to deal with new procedures, new rules or new demands. </font><p class="MsoNormal"><font face="Arial" size="2">Competing<span> </span></font></p><p class="MsoNormal"><font face="Arial" size="2">Basic Attributes:<span> </span>People having this outlook view life as competition with others.<span> </span>The focus is on making money, becoming a success, getting recognition, and being &ldquo;politically correct.&rdquo; Their motto is &ldquo;I want to get mine first.&rdquo;<span> </span>The United States was primarily a &ldquo;competing&rdquo; culture focused on extreme competition with everyone and everything until the late 1980&rsquo;s.<span> </span>Now, the country is shifting into the &ldquo;relating&rdquo; orientation.

    Ive already given constructive criticism, and its to make it look exactly how BBW looked...times-a-ticking...most of the people will end up at another forum if yall dont fix this quick...and the whole point of buying BBW is for the community(from what i understand) and the community is about to leave...so you fucked up our forum and you wasted money for absolutly nothing. </p>

    </p>

    EDIT: And make BALLAHOLIC an admin if he isnt one already.</p>

    <div class='quotetop'>QUOTE (Kid Chocolate)</div><div class='quotemain'>

    Honestly, the way these guys act, I'm not gonna lose any sleep if they leave. The Sportstwo guys have been diplomatic and nice enough, and probably will continue to do so, just because they are good guys by nature.</p>

    The main part of a forum is the community and the posters that make it up, and that will still be here, but instead the majority are showing that they are immature fools who want to complain and complain, and offer nothing when the sportstwo admins are here to do nothing but help, offering to mold the site to their liking. Instead of offering constructive criticism, all I see is cursing and whining, like a bunch of pre-pubescant e-gangsters. If you want to leave, go ahead & leave, don't act like a 10 year old (although, it seems like a lot have to be 10 year olds with the act that is being put on).</p>

    I don't see the harm in giving the site a chance, if you don't want to fine, but stop acting like d-bags. </p></div>x2

    A couple things I have to say:</p>

    1. For those of you concerned with the server over at <font size="4">Sports Evolution</font>, it did not crash. Tony is in the process of switching servers, and he said it could be back up later tonight.</p>

    2. I don't think Tony is going to admin here, or be active at all, so stop suggesting that he should get an admin position. He is running SE now, where all of BBW's core members went (and by the way, we are very happy with it, and most members see SE's homepage and forums as an upgrade over BBW anyway). It's also not just basketball, it's an all-sports forum with a ton of potential.</p>

    3. To the BBW members: stop freaking out at the SportsTwo admins and swearing at them. I don't like the move any more or less than you guys do, but these are clearly good guys that are putting forth an honest effort to make thing work. I feel sorry for them that it more than likely will not work out, but at least show them some respect. Be mad about the move, be mad at Combs for not telling anybody, but don't sound off on the S2 guys. </p>
