    Default Qotw


    Hey Guys,

    We have some really good conversations around here and through all that sometimes posters come up with some very memorable quotes. Some are insightful or enlightening, while others are just flat out funny. I think it would be a great idea to try and save some of these for the future. So this is a test thread. If you see something written around here by a poster that you think is worthy of the "Quote of the week" then please by all means post it here along with the link to the quote. At the end of the week I'll create a poll and we can vote on which one we like the most. If this idea is good then I'll create a main thread which lists all of the "Quotes of the week". If this is a bad idea I'll only do this once and it will die with all the other bad ideas I've had around here.

    Great idea Apollo.

    Will reward those people who choose to think a little bit more about what they write.

    It's a good idea so I hope you don't let it die if it doesn't start off with a bang.

    We have a great bunch of outside shooters. Unfortunately, all our games are played indoors.

    And here's one for my man Bargnani:

    Thanks for contributing but this is concerning actual quotes written by Raptors Republic posters.

    Just trying to lighten up the mood.

    Like Bendit, I'm on the natural side. Hopefully an upbeat one as well, as this will be a long summer, the way it's going.

    Anyways, I like the idea. It could end up being a thread with legs. If it remains in the RR spotlight I would think it'll have success.

    I could not agree more because I have always found that "Nature never hurries. Atom by atom, little by little she achieves her work."

    More specific to the Raptors, though, reviewing this season makes me hope that "The rainbows of life [really do] follow the storm."

    Alright, some good points were made in here. The first QOTW will last for two weeks to let people warm up to the idea. We'll do two more, spanning a week each, and if it catches on we'll keep doing it. That said, let's say the cutoff point for posting QOTW candidates is Jul 24th. We'll start voting on the 25th for the 1st ever QOTW and also open up a new thread for the second QOTW of July.

    LeeZ's 100th post! He doesn't get a cake but his response to the Alabi prediction thread gets him in the running for QotW:
