Yes, it amuses me. tOSU, tSMG, tTrib etc and so on. It can be used as a term of respect, arrogance, or a not so subtle way of making fun of and drawing attention to.

I hope that helps.

I just went there and got the following message


The discussion boards are down for scheduled maintenance. We expect the maintenance window to end sometime in the afternoon on October 2. Thank you for your continued patience.

I think most here ran out of "continued patience" :lol:

3 days? Either they are shutting er down or totally revamping the site. A few years back the board shut down for about a week. No warning...just gone for 7 days. When it came back...it was supposed to be faster...had a slightly different look etc. It was having problems within the first month. Trying to post there is just annoying.

I will be curious as to the explanation for the shut down. I would bet money they are trying to update it. Maybe after 6 years of waiting they will finally get the site clicking. Ok...no they won't. :lol:

i've been on the various other versions of that board since '97 give or take- and everytime it has been down for an extended period - it has been to 'revamp' the site.

since they have recently re-done the SteelersLive site, my guess is you are correct- they are going to launch an updated version.

Does anyone really care that the negative, gloomers and doomers don't have a place to go. Only a couple of guys still over there say anything worth reading. All you have to do is look at the thread title and the poster and you have a 90% probability of knowing exactly what negative BS they are going to spew for the 1000th time. A bunch of "never have beens" and "never will bes" trying to prove how much smarter they are than people who get paid to do it.

I don't care, but I will say that there are a few quality posters I wish would migrate here and post their insights. Call me nostalgic, but if I didn't find that board, I would of never met half of the posters that are currently posting on this board. The braintrust that has gravitated here are a bunch of really informed fans that not only offer a good perspective on things but are also great resources of material (i.e. NKy and Fordfixer). Their research into Steeler material and postings make this place a great buffet of 411.

If I still lived in the Burgh I would have been at the game to meet all you knuckleheads. Had it been a Sunday tilt I may have drove just to tailgate. So, if there's a fecal point at my former residence in Pittsburgh, you'll have to deal with Grandpa Pappy and Grandma Pappy and that wouldn't be pretty. :P

Looks like they just upgraded the servers, which they needed to do. Two things wrong with the process, noticeable instantly!

1) The background is Washington Redskins color, there's no black and gold.
2) They threw a lot of peoples' posts out, anything older than 365 days. Lots of whining and nashing of teeth there, it's amazing what is important to some people !

HHH is so exaggerted it's actually funny to me (in a sick twisted, not a "haha", kind of way)




And does anyone remember this guy from the "other" board. He hasn't been there since around or before the time of the great exodus of posters from there several years ago.

His handle was WV Steeler Fan or something very very similar. Now I know there's been a handlefull of folks there with very similar screen names. But this guy stuck out. He was HILARIOUS. Every time he posted he had some funny sh!t to say. Y'all would remember this guy I think because he consistently posted comedic crap of professional quality. I mean, HOGEFAN I found funny quite often but no where near the consistency and quality of this dude. I believe in his signature he had Jeff Burton's (or maybe another guy's?) NASCAR with a waving Steeler-logo flag on it. Did he go to that other other board during the Great Exodus? Anyone know if he is still around?

I set the rule for myself years ago when I found myself getting serious on one message board or another that when internet discussion boards/rooms stopped being fun and made me uptight for any reason it was time to step back from the comp because the whole purpose of these cyber-places for me was enjoyment (and sometimes education but I've found both are easily doable)

That's why I left the trib board and will never return. There is no enjoyment or education to be had there. None.
