congrats D-Soul !!!

I can't lie some of my posts were merely "bumps" and "+1's"

quality always trumps quantity.

(and the endless useless posts of me going back and forth with troll number what-ever...)

Same thing with blue Mike. It is all about quality vs quantity. I know before I joined and even when I did, I was more of a lurker for awhile.

I remember trolls of the past that would post a lot of crap just to get their post count up and thats about it.

LOL well you know how to fix that right? Keep on typing (hopefully with humor and quality) that will keep your brain working smoothly. And some research to base your arguments or points will also help :)

So i would be gone at times for about 4-6 months.

But at times like even yesterday/today I post a lot, but in general I would probably be 5-20 posts a day in reality.

But thanks guys. Forums are much better then what they were. It is nice. Plus I wanted to hit 10k (with more quality than quantity) before we got migrated to the new forum, and when I saw I was close, I wanted to get it before the SB game. I just didn't realize how much I was typing the last 2-3 days. Cause I was about 200-400 away from 10k around the weekend when I looked.

I've been hearing about new forums for 4 years now.Well yes it was for many years (they do exist lol). But they are waiting for the OFFSEASON to migrate them now. So I guess in about a month if we are lucky we might get them.

No one better steal my sexy name lol.

I liked the Blog that they were doing last year. I guess they are holding it back till the new forums are up, since they can be added with the new forum functionality.

Post counts are funny. Every once in a while you see someone who's been on the boards for 8-9 years make their 30th post. And then you think they must be so smart because they're so quiet.

Then you read the post, and realize the only smart thing they've done is not let others see their stupidity for 9 years.

Then again, we're all fans. Congrats on the milestone! [:)][B]

Tell us what the boards were like in 2002 (if you haven't already elaborated, since I didn't read a single other post in this thread).

Back then, the forums were up and down with trolls, and activity. They had a current event section, that eventually lead to a lot of problems based on Religion and Politics. Because many were unable to act as adults.

Many members left the forums and/or started another forum because they took the Current Events forum down. Personally it was the lack of being able to monitor them, and lack of Mods made it a tougher job.

I am hoping in the new forums when they are added after our season, they will allow the Current Events section up for a 2nd chance. Since many other NFL teams allow it, they just generally monitor it better (based on how many mods are on staff). Plus with the new forums, they are much easier to deal with many issues.

But when the CE section died, and all the trolls who caused part of the problem still stayed on these forums, it caused a pretty decent migration of members (and many of them were very good posters as well as knowledgeable). I came close to leaving once or twice because of it. It was initially why I use to leave for 4-5 months after the season, generally because of the troll.

But with the added mods a while back it has helped a lot. IMHO they still need some more Mods, to help in those off hour situations as it occurred this past week with some SF trolls.

But the MB really has gone in the right direction, and it is a lot more enjoyable then it was back in the day.

Some of those trolls back in the day, are back, but I guess matured, or got some wisdom over the years. And while I may not always agree with them, its nice to have them on.

These forums were changed a while back you are correct. But the NFL is taking (took) over websites for the teams. And they want all of them to have the same look feel. Not sure if the forums are part of that.

But the forums they plan on using are top of the line. I actually offered it to them years ago, since I took down a site that used it years ago.

But you can do so much with the new version of it. If interested check out a preview at www.Vbulletin.com

I didn't think they were implementing new forums. I remember a year or so ago the Mods were talking about it and how everyone would lose their posts. When is it going live? I'm a web designer/programmer and vBulletin is a great forum engine. My favorite option is the points feature.

They said they will have VB up and running after the season was over. Yet we know that it could happen 1 day before the new season lol.

How much would/do you charge to set-up or occasionally maintain VB? I have the updated VB w/blogs & all, but I screwed up resetting it, & I didn't have (spare) time to figure(fix) it out.

So now I have vb sitting and collecting dust lol.
