If something can't be worked out and this site truly does close I guess I'll be heading over to B arking Hard. They also have a political forum over there, but I'm not going to feel at home like I do here.

It honestly looks like their political forum over there could use an injection of regular posters. Its nowhere near as prolific as ours is

They couldn't handle the rogues gallery here that call the Political Board home. We'd all be mod-banned within a few months.

I look forward to that. Most of us have unique enough handles to make it just like the good times.

They ban people very easily over there. The core group of members there used to be members here years ago, until they tried to dictate to stan how to run his board and went behind his back PM'ing members of this board to recruit people for that board. I would never even attempt to join it under another name.

Hard to imagine signing up over there. I really have nothing against those guys it just seems like the moderators are pretty full of themselves and love micromanaging everybody from the once or twice I have stopped by, but that's been years ago.

As I recall there was some kind of bug over top of the messages that he had to sign in to get rid of, but I never did join.

Actually I'm a moderator and haven't heard a thing.

Activity in regards to small merchandise sales that use to help fund this place dried up years ago. I mean, I don't even believe a Browns stocking cap was purchased in several years. That left this place showing red for awhile. We waited just as you all did, for things to turn around.

 

This season, we went out and invested in having (60) I HATE THE STEELER shirts made, in hopes to off-set the costs with their sales. I guess we under-estimated that 90% of the folks who now use this forum have no clue where that iconic shirt idea came from (ED, the longtime member of this group/forum, tailgate cooking shirt - snow, rain or sunshine). So, now we only added to the expenses.

 

I'm not hurting for money, in fact, I'm as financially comfortable as at any time in my 49.5 years on earth. That is not the point. With no interest in merchandise, we weighed that against not so much interest in this forum and entertained the idea of shutting things down.

 

Guys like Hoorta took shots at my frequent Vegas trips and called for me to un-facebook friend him ... some greeting for the 13 years I did fund this place, and the 20 years we've rubbed elbows on a Browns internet Message Board. He then followed that post with a link to BarkingTard (good grief). CalFox called out the forums mechanics, another stellar Thank-you for long time service. Others cracked about how they could easily donate money .... yeah, sure (temp fix).

 

The post/thought was removed. I don't think there is a way to bring up the financials of this place without taking a beating and looking like a beggar, so we will just move-on business as usual, privately. I'm sure the thought has already gotten the ball rolling for others to create a new place and recruiting is already taking place behind-the-scenes, been-there & weathered-that.

 

Your a longtimer Bear, this place was built for you, me, and a dwindling group of others (RIP to some). I've stuck it out to create a home for others like the group we assembled from/into from the 1990/s. If the interest is still there, we will continue to provide, but I don't think that it was too much to ask for a sound-check at this horrible time in franchise history.

 

We're going to make some changes, but the forum will remain. Let the snide remarks continue! Cheers!

Never even checked out Brady Quinn Homo Fan club never will. I wish Stan would still post here, I still remember reading Zombo's post back in the day that read "Skippy went and offed himself" And IMO this p[lace was never the same. I for 1 am some of the "goofs" are gone I will not even bother saying any of their names But I can't understand people crying to Stan or any of the mods over what somebody said. BUT THE BROWNS BOARD WILL NEVER DIE I hope

Awesome. One of the main reasons I stopped posting here is because whatever my opinion was it got turned into the sites opinion. If I were for D.Anderson, it was perceived that the forum was for him.

 

I think I distanced myself away long enough to shed that era.

 

I had a long talk with Ghoolie today about why we set out to create this forum. I lost some of that drive. I'm much, much, much busier these days, but I'll try to show more effort here.
