Merry Christmas 2015 and Happy New Year 2016 from The Greenhouse

Image
Image

It is that time of year again... time to wish all the members and followers of The Greenhouse a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. It has been three years in a row that the Raiders have not had a shot in the finals, the first time that's happened in history. But the team is building, with some smart recruitment and some young players becoming more experienced. The signs are good for a finals campaign in 2016!

We have 2,900 members of the forum, over 20,000 followers on Facebook and over 4,000 on twitter. On all our social media platforms, including Instagram and Pinterest, we have more than 35,000 followers.

It's thanks to you, the members and followers of the site, for continuing to make The Greenhouse the number one Canberra Raiders supporters website! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!

Merry Christmas everyone! Please stay safe, have fun and return next year!!

Thanks to everyone who contributes to this site, it truly is a the best place for Raiders fans to mingle and support our team no matter if you live in Canberra, Sydney, Brisbane, Darwin or anywhere else in Australia or abroad this place is special and makes those distances seem like metres to the shops.
And lets be honest, some of us outside of Canberra might not have too many other Raiders fans to talk too!

As a female fan on this site, can I personally say thank you for including me and accepting my weird ideas at times :) Not many club forums would be so nice to female fans and so respectful so thank you and hopefully a few more will join up!

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

Best wishes to all the Greenhouse family!
