I noticed that my fellow refugees from Steelersfever.com have all been posting on their migration in the Steelers forum, when clearly they should be showing PlanetSteelers a tad more respect and posting in the Whatever Else There Is in the World Besides the Steelers sub-forum.

Anyhow, the new (or is it old?) owner of SteelersFever - Matthew - finally logged on and posted the following:

Hello,
Yes Steelers Fever is introducing paid membership system. At this time this is mistake from Developers. They implemented system for testing without informing me.
They need 24 hours to test system that is why all folks get this problem. Apologize for inconvenience. I request to all of users to cooperate with us.

Paid membership is not too much expensive. Its in rang of users. For your convenience we also added different packages, so you can choose that is good and according to your needs.

Steeler Fever is good community just help it to grow. As you all know we need support of our members, as this community is because of you and for you. As soon as we tested system successfully I will notify to folks about future plan. At this time I just want to request you for cooperation.

Thanks

Many AT&T Customer Service, Apu and all-syrup Squishee jokes followed. I normally frown on that sort of behavior... but this time I think it's safe to say they had it coming.

Many thanks to PlanetSteelers for welcoming us, and for agreeing to waive my $45 entrance fee.

"They suck bad word"?

Under normal circumstances, I would agree with you. But this isn't a normal circumstance. With so many new members flooding Planet Steelers at once, I'm sure the existing members are curious about what's going on. The Steelers section is the most-read section of any Steelers forum, so we entered in a place that was most-likely to be seen. We didn't want to sneak in the backdoor. And we've kept it to a few threads rather than each former SF member creating their own thread.

The Planet Steelers community so far has been very understanding of our situation. And I don't think we've done anything to disrespect them or their wonderful forum.

Yeah.. but you have to remember, this is just another day on a forum board for them. So it is probably best if we don't clutter up the boards here, post in wrong forums, and generally make it feel more like an infestation than a joining.

You're right though, they have been quite gracious. It'd be good for SF refugees to kinda self police for a while... just until we get the hang of this board and add too instead of disrupting it. Remember how we felt when others would come and do that at SF?

i'm sure the rules here are probably pretty much the same as they were at SF so it shouldn't be a problem conforming to the board. if you don't know the rules and if its not defined in the COC, i'm sure a moderator or a veteran poster would be happy to answer a question.

Do the good folks here at Planet Steelers have room for a Raiders fan?

I see this is where most of you that I know from SF have gone. I'll just lay low and get a feeling for this place before I dive in... if I'm welcome here. :lol:

The funniest is reading articles with "Bad Word Lebeau".

Personally, I liked the word filter at the old triblive better - it was "Wickerbasket" Lebeau.

That and jelly beans cracked me up everytime.

For the SF folks, it's fairly lax since most everyone is good natured around here. How long were yinz on the SF site? Sounds like some folks had a lot of posts over there similar to the old trib board.

Some fans of other teams can be real bastages that only want to start trouble. They don't last.

However, we have a few fans of other teams that are good guys that want to come here and just talk football like rational fans, and they are always welcome (such as Bengal fan Jom112 and Chiefs fan HardlinerKC). As long as you belong to the latter category and not the former, you likely have found a new home to post. Welcome!

Hey Flippy
I was at SF for a couple of years, but wasn't a huge poster..about 300 posts in that time. But some of the others (Preacher, tony hipchest, HomeTownGal, Dino 6 and others) have been there for years and have had many thousands of posts.

Yeah, I was up near 7900 as of yesterday. I loved posting there and built a good relationship with some of the other posters, even if we disagreed on things, politics, the OC, the playcalling on Defense, or the color of the moon, it was a lot of fun over the years to just debate and chat and talk and hear other points of views.

Now its like changing schools, I got to get to know everyone again.

I'm not here to start trouble. I keep tabs on the Steelers because most of my friends are Steelers fans... and so is my own mother :( .

I've been a Raiders fan for 43 years, and I love the rivalry that once was. I hope it can be rekindled. Thanks for taking in the SF crowd... they're a good bunch.

Well since he has the highest post count of all of us, he has to stay behind and turn off the lights, eat the leftover's and drink the skunky Iron City before he can join up.

Hey Vinny. Some shenanigans, huh? How do you opine? I haven't heard anything from you during Entropy Days.

I'll say several things that probably won't be very popular.

First, If Mike owned the board, it was his prerogative to sell it. And it is the prerogative of the buyer to do whatever they want to with it. Doesn't have to make sense or be popular.

Second, the behavior of "some" posters in the wake of the Apocalypse demonstrates the need for mods. Frankly I was surprised, but then again, why would that be surprising.

All that said, the reactions are understandable. I posted my requisite finger wagging.

Hey, its an Internet board. Let's not make more of this than is appropriate.

Vincent
05-29-2010, 11:37 AM

Hard to say. Too early in the game.

I will say this. I like the black surround vs white. More "Steelerish". Also, for those energy conscious folks among us, the dark surround is ecofriendly, if spending hours staring at a screen can be at all ecofriendly. :lol:

:Boobs Wondering what relevance this particular "smilie" could have to anything that might be discussed here, but I'm confident that someone will work it in.

But I distinctly remember Preacher saying he had to try now to get his wife banned as well... and yet he was posting there yesterday. Did I imagine that?

Like I said, it doesn't really matter, except that it would be interesting to see just how desperate the new owners are to try to fix their problem. To think that they are somehow going to win Preach over, after making his stance quite clear, is delusional, I would say.
