even though you knew these boards wouldn't come up until today, how many of you still checked back periodically over the week-end hoping that something unexpectedly good would have happened? I plead guilty with about 7 or 8 fruitless visits. Good to be back!

I think if you download TapATalk, you can view the boards better. I'm pretty sure it's native in TaT on mobiles.

I plead guilty with about 7 or 8 fruitless visits. Good to be back!I checked maybe 2 or 3 times over the weekend and a couple times right before the noon eastern estimate. Glad they are up and running.

lol, I guess we all could have MUCH worse habits! haha thats for sure....I don't watch much TV.. I come on the boards in the evenings and read...I missed the place for few days I also checked in serveral times over the shut down hoping for an early start up ....It was worth the wait tho everthing seems to work here....they done a great job and brought everthing over which had to take a lot of extra effort...not sure many other org would have done that...

Roosevelt
07-23-2012, 08:19 PM

Great to see these boards coming back to life, better than ever! :cool:

I was kinda deprived the last 3 days. I kept checking and hoping for an "early unveiling," but alas there was none.

This made my Monday a lot better. (yes, it is sad)

Yeah guilty of checking back here. I'm really thankful for the new forums otherwise. I accidentally locked myself out of these forums over a password issue. Had they not updated it I would've banned myself here forever *phew*

I finally got back on. On the old boards my stuff got FUBAR'd and wouldn't come back up. Even tried emailing mods to no avail. New boards, new password, back in action.

when i surf the web, i instinctively type boards.giants.com now. It's second nature. Even when i want to elsewhere, I still end up going to the boards out of habit.

Yeah I know. I couldn't remember the email associated with my gumby742 account. I could only grab my older gumby74 account (which was perma banned before ..lol). Here's a tip don't ever talk about politics or religion here :)

I admit to checking like 3 times a day lol. and Gumby I had a similar issue, I just just had the site send the password change to each of my emails since it also told me which account it was under.

What about "Gumby2"? Saw one of those logged in hahaha Haha. Yeah that's me too. I think both of them were banned at some point. Again, talking about religion and politics is bad :)

Same thing almost happened to me....I couldn't remember the email assoc with my account either. I had changed to a different carrier and never got around to updating email on here. I went back and looked and was able to find it and it was reduced down to a non paid free acct through aol I had not used in years. Almost had to re register with a zero post count

I'm not too happy, it was a pain getting my old account back. The threads look okay, the "new" features are okay. I honestly had no problem with the old boards at all. They ran perfectly fine for me.
