The right thing to say......

HTG, FS, and X-term have the board up and running. Before I give you the link however, let me ask everyone a favor.

This board, and their mods have been absolutely FANTASTIC to us over the last few days. No hazing, very accepting. In light of that, may I suggest that if you are headed over to the new board, you keep this posting on this board as well.

This board reminds me of SF about 3 years ago. Young, fresh, vibrant, with real opportunity. I think they enjoy the boost we have given them as much as we have enjoyed having a good place to land.

With that said, the new site has been create. Please contact Preacher for the URL.

Like I said on the other thread...

They have been very good to us here... can we wait to get permission from the mods before we do this? Just cancel out the post?

Just a way of showing a little respect. They HAVE been very good to us.

I have an email into one of the mods concerning it.

Good idea. I thought the same thing. The guys/gals here have been great to us.

But I just unpacked!!

If there's a silver lining in what happened at SF, it was finding Planet ... If Ben can have more than one home, then so can I.

Nothing personal, but to me this seems....well in bad form. Come stay for a day eat our food sleep in our bed then say well thanks, but we found some place nicer. This place isn't good enough now... Just me talking. I kinda take offense to it.

Sorry we couldn't give you the Steelers Discussion you were looking for.

I wouldn't have spammed the board with the other addy. At least 3 of us in this thread have already said we plan on posting here still.

Bad form IMO.

I dont think the guy meant anything by this post....some have already stated that he should have got permission before doing so...no harm done.

They had a home and it was abruptly taken from them, so they felt like they needed to rebuild it...very understandable...best wishes to all of them whether they stay or not.

YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I do think it was bad form as well. Well, I might as well post the PM I sent to a mod (He's off line, so he didn't get it).

However, this was what I was asking to post.


From our old board, SteelersFever, the mods have put together a new board. It is now up and running.

I was wondering if you would allow me to post a thread for all teh old SF members. I would ABSOLUTELY exhort them to stay here as well, and post on both sites. Matter of fact, if you allow me to do it, here is the post I would use!

With that said, the new site is (a mod asked me to change it to receiving PM's. I think that is absolutely fair. Please PM me if you want the new web address) BUT ONLY IF YOU PLAN ON SHOW SOME LOVE HERE AS WELL!!!!!!

I hope to see you all both HERE and THERE.

If not, I completely understand. I just thought I would ask!

Personally, I no longer think of myself as a Fever refugee. I now think of myself as a member of the Planet community.

I'm not going to criticize anyone because it's been a very emotional few days for a lot of people. Sometimes out of anger or excitement, we do things without thinking it through. I'll leave it at that.

personally, i don't think it really matters at all and in no way does it reflect on any other Steelers Fever member.

for those posters who would like to continue posting here at Planet Steelers i welcome your future thoughts and look forward to disagreeing with you soon... :D

for those who only used this website as a temporary place of refuge i wish you well in your life and future posting, hope the new website turns out as wonderful as your last one seemed to be.

i have already made some new friends, there really are a bunch of cool people that were at Steelers Fever and i'm glad i got to meet a lot of you. i'm sorry for the circumstances that led you to coming here, but you guys and gals have already made this website better because of it.

I have loved the new influx of members coming and adding to the collective. I know I'm speaking for the others when I say that we don't consider the new membership as "refugees." The brethren has expanded and when talking about Steeler fans, its always a good thing. I invite all the new members to please stay and make plans early to attend our official Planet Steelers Tailgate on week 10, 11/14 against the Cheats!!! Like last year, it will be a blast and we are sure this one is going to be massive!. Welcome aboard my brothers!

I'm also a new SF refugee, and I've been lurking for a couple days, but I have to say I love this place. I plan on being a member of both for sure.

Actually, as far as I'm concerned, it's a little refreshing to have a fresh start and meet a whole gang of new like-minded fans. Being on the same forum talking to the same couple hundred people gets catty and stale at times. You want to really know, if steeluniverse.net becomes just a lifeboat for steelersfever, you guys will be a better forum than us. Everybody is excited and a little apprehensive right now, and the other forum is riding a wave of enthusiasm, but there's not telling how the hell it will work out long-term. (I wrote a fairly extensive message about this on our own forum here, if you're interested: http://www.steeluniverse.net/forums/sho ... -Helped-Us (http://www.steeluniverse.net/forums/showthread.php?70-Helping-Those-Who-Helped-Us).)

Just please, bear with us. Things are crazy. But I don't think anyone means anyone any disrespect. Most of us are just excited that we've found a great group of people to interact with here, and hopeful that we can make this into a critical mass one way or another.

There is no superiority, "our site was bigger" or "our site was around longer" here. Or at least everyone ought to realize that. Our forum doesn't even exist anymore. I'm overwhelmingly happy that there are people who would actually hold their arms out for us instead of telling us to piss off, like at one other baord I shall not name.

I wholeheartedly agree with Preacher and the other former Steelers Fever members! You guys are so daggum nice that I plan on sticking around, like it or not!!!! They way you have embraced us is as classy as it gets and a model on how we, at SU, should well remember as we grow with new members.

You are all invited to the housewarming party SU. Bring a covered dish. Drinks will be provided.

It all comes down to one thing anyway.........

I should also add that there are some very cool people that came over here and I hope a good many of you stay, if not all of you. Yinz really livened up the place and mixed in quite well. I mean that in all sincerity. :)

But the OP...18 posts and 12 of them were to spam our forum to get the message out about SU.

I agree and understand that losing your posting home is rough. I only pointed out that I personally felt a little put off by the post saying another forum was available. The main reason I was put off is because of the quality of the posts that the new faces had brought to the board in such a short time. I hate to see good people go. I was not complaining about you all trying to stay together. Just that manner in which it was executed here. That is all.

It was just my personal feeling and shouldn't be reflective of the other members here. Good people they are, and I like to think I am as well. Just speaking my mind. Thanks for posting here. It has been much enjoyed.
