Where did everybody go? Sad to see it.
This was a good example of what not to do with a message board. After the change last year I was unable to log in. Went through the process for the new board, Said confirmation was sent to my email but I never received the email. Sent message to the board admin but never got a response back. Checked through my junk filter and found an email from the board after about 6 months. By then I had pretty much moved on to Landthieves. Not sure how many people might have had a similar problem.
Pretty much everyone.
Yes, I have had similar problems. This was one of the best boards some years ago when the football and also political and dark discussions were vibrant. However, SF has been mismanaged in a number of ways, including lack of attention, allowing buddies to be administrators, idiotic insider cliques, insecure old men administrators who ban clever new posters, etc. Now I recognize many former SF members on LT, a very active and informative board which is unfortunately full of young, immature members.
This place is pretty much dead. I think it was mostly due to technical problems with DOS attacks, changing software that locked people out multiple times, etc. LT is just too crowded to be very useful. Sometimes a thread is worth reading for maybe a page at most, then too many "me too" quips, thread-jacking and trolls. The football brainiacs is the only place to get solid info on the football program, which is my main interest. It does publish rumors which puts off some people, but I actually find it interesting whether the rumor pans out to be true or not.
I guess we'll see if this place ever comes to life again once we get to the next football season. I assume if the football list is dead, then the other forums have long decayed too.
same here. I think from many. many posts to this now 2? or 3 posts? not sure what happened but I really liked the old board.
maybe not the best place to ask...but where is a good Sooner Message board now days...
Soonertimes - a little bit neurotic
Olevet's Hideout - a little bit coarse
Land thieves - will give you diaper rash
OU Hoops - doesn't like football, I think
I visit Soonertimes mostly, but don't post much, because you could have a post deleted without warning or notification, for no apparent reason. There is often good information there, though.
We aint just Coarse, We be Rude, Crude and a whole lot of Lasciviousness Plus we got some Great emoticons and a Casino
I still lurk for the most part, just not as much to lurk. I'd love to see this site return to glory. Think of the current state as the blake years.
Dang, that there is a big word. You have to look that one up.
I have been starting threads that would have blown the place up before and now they sit idle. So sad.
I come back now and again. its so quiet, not a lot to post about, since some of the threads haven't had new posts for months/years. I miss the good ole days
