    Where have all the posters gone

    I used to enjoy reading the posts during the games and seeing the give and take among all the posters.  It appears that those days are gone.  In a day when the internet and websites are big business, why would any "news site" take steps to reduce the number of hits to its website as Boston.com and the Globe have done with their forum?

    I know I find it more difficult to browse the subjects - also I guess I was a little miffed that they listed me as a new member when I've been on this board for several years.  Anyway, it just doesn't seem to be set up for the give and take that the old board allowed.

    I miss my friends posting on this board too!
    Just not the same without the give and take on
    the board while the games are on!
    Many of us have disserted this board because
    of the problems.  I keep checking in to see if
    BDCDottie has made changes to the "new" board -
    so it will run like the "old" boards.  I don't know
    why they felt they needed to change.
    Sometimes new is not better!
    Let's Go Bosox!
    Good win!
    AND I'm glad that Tim Wakefield got the
    run support he deserves yesterday!!

    All I can say is don't give up.  I think they've ruined it forever for the most part, but the game day thread can and will be saved, and that's important.  Just keep posting to at least that one thread, and it'll increase from 20-30-40-50.  We can overcome BDC's errors.  Keep the faith like RS fans have done since the beginning of time,

    A  Word to the Mods.  You find a way for us to edit our posts so we can correct a typing error or the use of the wrong word or I'm out of here too.   That should be pretty damn simple for you to accomplish.   I have no illusions you'll fix the other  problems and apparently neither do most of the other members since they're leaving in droves.   Congratulations guys, you really made a mess of this board.

    I don't know what sort of loyalty we are supposed to have to BDC.  This is their doing and everyone here suffers for it.  Staying here is sort of like rebuilding your home in a place that gets flooded over and over.  I'll be honest with you, the more I see of the other message boards, the harder it is to even read this one.  You owe it to yourself to at least look at 30something's link, everyone should.

    jesus christ...

    That site is yours   NICE JOB   = )

    A whole lot of insight, but dont expect lots of folks going over there....for some of them is just easier to stay on the negativity, player bashing and yankee bashing than using common sense and numbers to support any statement.

    Victory, I KNOW that site is mine.  And it's nothing special.  I don't even post much there...

    It is simply the best way to send me an e-mail (to which I can respond with the real link) without having me post either my e-mail or the link publicly.

    Would you rather I gave the link to all the trolls?

    I can't disagree with anything you said.  It's almost like BDC did this on purpose so that they can say they have discussion boards, but without going to the expense of actually maintaining it.  I'd like to keep the group together, at least for the game day thread, but I will certainly check out 30's link.

    There are 515 pages of threads on this site!
    And that is just the Red Sox.
    I think the mods might need to do some clean-up.

    If you go to your set up, you can list all the discussions types, but they don't show up all on one page anymore.
    There is still On the Front Burner, Game by game and Off the Field etc.  Just harder to find and then look to see which discussion might be worth joining. 

    I don't like this new format either.  Too much work, too much time to look up formats.  Plus the default print is tiny - hey mods you know some of us are old and can't see well. Who types in .08 print?

    I'm still trying to figure out the  way.  The #1 rule of computing is 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it'.  The only possible reason to change from a working format is to save money ..... but that would only apply if they were paying someone big bucks in either  royalties or support for the old boards.  I doubt they saved anything with this.

    Joe, you know me.  You and I have had some great discussions here.  The guys and gals here are the best.  But it's really annoying this way.  Sometimes I think faster than I type and after I hit the send key there's nothing I can do to correct things and that makes me crazy.  We used to have a whole list of topics and now it's been whittled down.  I'm hearing the changes were made to reduce the number of hits and thin out the membership.  Why on earth would they do that?  Why not show some guts and simply announce the board was about to close?

    Some folks form here have registered at http://bosoxboard.com. Many more have visited but not registered. I think everyone is waiting for the membership to go up before registering? Bit of a catch 22. I started that board specifically to fill in for this one while they work things out. There is no agenda there and no limit on what can be done with it. Drop by, have a look, leave a note, and by all means, make suggestions. I'm willing to add categories or forum subjects and would even welcome some help running the board as summer is my busy time and I'm limited in how much time I can spend on it. If you think it has potential and are willing to help run the board, let me know. I'll go ahead and add a suggestions section.
