Just trying to write an article link on SteelersLive and noticed it's crashed again

If I can get on there I may just post a topic letting people know that they're more than welcome to come here especially for the game day thread.

Well, I got banned from TrollLive so I can't help you. I wish the 10 or so decent posters left there would go ahead and make the damn jump. That place welcomes racism, idiocy, and trolls but censors and deletes rational discussion, even when its purpose is to make the board better.

Awesome site. :|

I've given up posting over there. Not worth it. There are at least three discussion boards for the Steelers that blow the TribLive board out of the water, so why would I bother?

I would consider going there to invite newbies, but I don't know if anyone would follow. My guess is that the best bet would be to toss out a few names here of people who still post there who would be a good addition here who aren't already here. The one name that just leaps to mind for me is Patrick Williams. He should be over here, at least.

The best way to get in touch with anyone there that should be here is via PM. I'd be willing to personally contact as many TribBoard posters as possible to get them over here. This is a good spot to discuss Steelers football.

I'll start a list ( I know we had one when this site launched originally but it can't hurt to try again ).

Feel free to tell 'em that I got banned for trying to make that craphole a better place. I doubt it will make a difference but who knows.

I really only post there to mess with tammiesteel. Other than that, the place is troll central. :?

So many good posters over there have been contacted and they just don't come over for some reason.

I don't get it.

If people are that hung up on post counts and/or join dates perhaps admin can help out in that regard?

I gotta guess a lot of it is laziness/familiarity. And maybe some of them enjoy the trolls/racism/idiocy/obvious results if incest.

They have made some improvements over there, so I'm not going to completely bash it. It is much quicker than it was and does offer up more discussion than over here, but the troll factor is embarrasing to this fan base, and I don't mean the outside fans. I mean the Steeler fans. Call this a kool-aid board if you want, but that is the opposite of kool-aid over there. It's like the Pabst Blue Ribbon board.

That site is a joke. But at least I've found something I'm going to post in every one of tammiesteel's new threads:

It wouldn't if the guys who are serious about discussing the Steelers and the rest of the NFL would come over here and leave the genetic throwbacks* to themselves over there!

I wouldn't call this a kool-aid board. I'd call it a rational board. Since the Turkey Day holiday is almost upon us I'll use an analogy based on that. PS is the adult table and the Trib board is the kid table.

I love this MB, but still post there. There are good threads, and just ignoring the trolls works for me. I'm here more than there, but like them both.

I just quit posting on Stillers.com recently. Don't know why I stayed there so long. That is the "I know more because I swear more than you do" board.

I post and look occassionally. I too, still enjoy some of the threads/posters. I have a very practical reason for not posting more -- it is blocked now at my work. This site is still under the radar.

Yea, that's my only frustration with this board, that it isn;t as active as triblive. True, most of the posts are trolls, but there is still a lot more activity.

If only that were the case for everyone.

I really do miss some of those posters and wish they'd leave that board in their wake for good. Here we have people in place who can deal with the folks who are negative to the point of ridiculousness 100% of the time. Over there they just don't care.
