Lack of activity

Lack of activity 


There sure does seem to be a lack of activity over on this board this season.  I don't know if we are all quietly cautious or what the situation is, but we have not heard at all from several of our regular visitors and there has not been much spirited discussion that would be expected from a 6-1 team.

Where are ya'll at?

Re: Lack of activity 


I can pretty much sum that up for ya in the lyrics of a Boston song///More Than A Feeling...

"Faces Fade as the Years Go By"

This site was held together by a close-nit bunch of friends...who enjoyed each others company...back in 07...this place was kicking...but the years have passed and life has brought new priorities...this forum never was one of the bigger ones compared to other Saints sites...you had your regulars...new faces came and old faces left...but you always had that group of friends who kept this place alive...I for one have had so much change in the past few years that keeps me from being on here more...I still check in by habit to see what's happening and share my thoughts...and I'll continue to do so...this place is like an old friend...with a lot of memories... the Saints could be 1-6 and I'd still be here...

There's still a few regulars who support this site...they know who they are...and it's appreciated that they come in [from other teams as well] and support this place...social media has exploded and some may find other places to get their Saints news...

In the meantime....Geaux Saints....kick some J-E-T-S azz this Sunday.....biggrin

I have never understood how some of these sites just disappear. The Braves site on scout.com was hoppin' for years and years and something happened to make the publisher angry with scout and he took off and the site completely died. Which I think is odd, because it's the posters who make the site, right?

I don't have the energy to go hunt up sites. This one is linked to a site that I have about 26K posts on, so I can come here upon occasion, but it does seem rather dead around here.

Re: Lack of activity 


I fully understand what you mean by life moves on.  I have a high school senior and she is in the middle of applying to colleges.  I have battled health problems over the last 4 years and in some ways it takes time away, but in other cases it gives me nothing but time.

My mind costly races thinking about the Saints and it really doesn't stop.  I'm thinking about the draft, about the schedule, about the salary cap, about free agency, about the OTAs, about the preseason practices, about the preseason games, about the roster moves, about the 53 man roster and ultimately the games.

I'm just excited about the Saints and would love nothing more than to come over here and have several active threads of give and take.  Talking Strategy and Game Plans and so on.

Just sayin.  Who DAT.

Re: Lack of activity 


I started coming here in '05.  I had just moved to Vegas after Hurricane Katrina.  No one here cared two poops about the Saints and we were coming off the dreadful last year of Haslett. I was always looking for news online.  I ran into this board quite by accident.  Bubba, Saintsational, SuperSaint , Cass, JP and a few others that I have forgotten were posting every day on here.  For a short time that I was here, we had another board that we were posting on. 

We were having a blast and like Bubba, I feel like our golden year was '07.  We had such a good time.  Even though that wasn't a particularly good year for the team,  I couldn't wait to get online in the evening and see what was going on.  The Bourbon Street forum was hopping and lots of people that were fans of other teams were coming here to hang out.  Vette, Worx and BNGbabe were among those I remember fondly.  It was just like hanging out with your friends at home while you had and ice cold beer. 

I've had groups of friends in my life that will hang out for a while and for some reason, everyone moves on in their lives.  People got married, got jobs in other towns or just other reasons, their lives changed and dynamics in a group of friends can change with a very minor change, but for a while, those groups can be fun and sometimes almost magical, but in my experience, they always dissipate after a while. 


I still come one here every day.  I have this set to one of my homepages so I see what's going on every day.  I have gotten out of the habit of posting so much.  If no major news is happening with the team or the board, I will move on to other things.

Me too. I'm not local so I come here for news and insights. I'm not a big thread starter but I contribute if something interesting is going on.
It is slow this year.

RE: Lack of activity 


I started coming to this site at the beginning of the 09' season before the Superbowl. I had been enjoying the late Kenny Wilkerson's website, neworleansprofootball.com, until the webmaster William, decided to do all the posting and let everyone else comment on his posts. Both he and Wilkerson had a great site, but the new format drove everyone away, and the site's now no more since Kenny's passing.

There were about 20 of us there since the late '90's and I don't have the slightest idea where ANY of them went, unless it was to NOLA. There were fans from Canada's Northwest Territories, Japan, Europe, and everywhere in between. So I never saw the '07 activity on this site, which you all call its apex. It's kind of like applying that real-life saying to the internet: you can never go home. Time and location never merge just the same way again.

The entire Scout network has gone to complete chit the past couple years fellas not just here. Many boards that were thriving are now dead including Atlanta board. The powers that be at Scout don't give a fk about the team boards, they make their money on the high school scouting part of it.

You may be right.  I am always on the Auburn Board and there are always several thousand people logged in over there.

Memories.....
This place was almost magical at one point.
Football brought us together but it was the chemistry of the group that bonded us and kept us coming back here, at least for awhile.

I've often equated a forum to a river.
Always moving and always changing.
New things added and old things carried away.

I still check in but like most of the others, I don't post near as often anymore.
Just for old times sake, I posted today in the Poydras St. Forum though.... cool

Thanks, everyone knows the real reason for the lines waiting to come here was my Singing... and the watered down beer at Bubba's House of Shrimp.

They needed the water-down beer to survive through your singing.....tongue

The real reason everyone came  here was to see all the fine women BRT and Super posted from their portfolio of photographs they took...
