I requested to take over the subverse since the original mod has been M.I.A. for about a year.
First off, I'd like to take the time to introduce myself. I'm /u/CrackheadControl. Blue belt, dabble more in NoGi. Been training for about 4 years. I'm a mod for /v/MMAComedy, /v/MMAFights, and /v/stolenvalor. They're not very active like this place, but hopefully /v/BJJ can grow as time goes on.
Now, onto business.
- I've had some ideas on how to run this place, but I don't want my word to be the law of the land here. I'd love to have feedback from people as to what should be allowed and what shouldn't.
This place won't be moderated by myself. I would like to have a team that will help run this place smoothly. Two other mods would be perfect for now, but I only need one person that knows how to handle the CSS stuff here. I'm going to be looking for trusted people who contribute to this section and can uphold the rules (which will be discussed later) in a fair way. The last thing I'd want is a ban happy mod. As of now, there's going to be a period of time where I'll be watching who (if anyone) contributes good stuff and gets this place going. After some time, the people will decide.
Rules, let's keep it simple for now: this is for BJJ stuff.Obviously. Gi, NoGi, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, Gracie Barra, Alliance, Machado, 10th Planet, Gracie Humaita, Checkmat, ATOS, Nova Uniao, or your local gym. Funny, serious, techniques, stories, advice, videos, events, tournaments, whatever. As long as it's Jiu-Jitsu related, it's welcome. If it's a submission takes place in a MMA fight, or a street fight that has a guy choking someone with a triangle choke, it's welcome here for discussion and entertainment. Wrestling, Sambo, Judo, and other forms of grappling submissions are welcome if they're related to Jiu-Jitsu, for example, utilizing takedowns and throws into BJJ or defending against these styles.
That's all I have for now, but please, post your input and let's try and get this place going. Also help spread the word about /v/BJJ and let's get this place active!
