Marc 02-01-2001 07:12 PM

Tell us how you first found the boards. Was it through a link? A search engine? A friend? This should be interesting. :)

Wedge231 02-01-2001 07:50 PM

Some guy named Marc told me about them. I wonder who that was....

iFroggy 02-01-2001 09:32 PM

I was asked to moderate it by Marc.

Nate 02-01-2001 09:46 PM

umm...Marc ;)

Wedge231 02-01-2001 10:24 PM

Everyone has had the same source so far. Well, we are some of the first members. We need some newer members to post and we can see what brought them here.

Spike 02-06-2001 02:59 AM

I hate to be redundant but I'm here because of Marc too, hehe.

Because I used to post at a place called, "The Sports Post" over on the ezboards and Marc came by and invited me here.

iFroggy 02-06-2001 09:46 AM

Marc... you stole visitors from another sports site! I'm shocked! :eek:

Just kidding ;)

H. Tiemann Jr. 02-06-2001 06:58 PM

Marc?? I think that name sounds familiar..

Yeah, now I think about it, it was Marc. :)

Yes, I was a mod with a few other sites and Marc asked me to be a part of Sports Central. Thanks again Marc :)

NickHammy 02-06-2001 07:52 PM

Uhhh......
 
Marc i remember 2 years ago when u would only talk about this site (when u were in UA) you told us all about this stuff....

Yeah, Nick, my old friend from when I lived in Columbus, OH, is referring to when I used to talk about SC back even then, when I first got off the ground with this stuff.

It seems the common theme here is me. But, all that matters is you're all here. :) Now that most of the regulars have posted, some of you lesser-knowns tell us how you got here.

Wedge231 02-06-2001 09:06 PM

Cool. If I told any of my friends about this site they would never come. Has to do with the fact that they're all computer illiterate idiots brainwashed by AOL. Where's some of the < 100 post members?

Marc 02-25-2001 12:25 AM

Just bringing this thread back up for some of you who might have missed it. Some of you who don't post as much, we still are curious how you found us!

SC-Jared 03-06-2001 06:22 PM

some guy who spells Mark with a C.... like the Warriors' Marc Jackson..... weird.

:)

snowman 03-09-2001 12:56 PM

actually, coach tom told me about this place @ the msnbc board! thanks, coach! oh, by the way you guys are #1.

Dre2g 03-18-2001 12:34 PM

I used to post at the ezboard back in August or so, but lost the link. Today I was searching for it, and found that it had switched here. :)

Hi, welcome back, then! What was your name on the old boards?

Dre2g 03-18-2001 01:11 PM

I only posted there a little. My name was Dre2g, I think. I mainly just read posts, hardly ever replied.

Miscreants 04-28-2001 07:16 PM

So I gather this is just a community of previous friends who got together and said "Hey! Let's start and internet board..." Anyone get refered here, by hearsay? Like: "Hey, you ought to see this place! It rocks/sucks?" Anyone?

I'm sure there are... difference is that most of people who I referred who are my friends posted, those who found it other ways, some of the less active posters, haven't added their thoughts yet.

As a matter of fact, I only knew four or five people who post here and a lot of the posters I met from posting here. So we all act like friends because we met each other here. :)

Oh, and welcome Miscreants.

Miscreants 04-28-2001 07:53 PM

Thanks for the welcome...

It just always intrigues me how these places get started. I'm hoping more people answer this post, just to get and idea.

Nate 04-29-2001 12:45 AM

Yeah, welcome Miscreants!

I'm sure Marc would like more people to reply to this thread. He's tried to bring it back several times, but no one will bite...

Wedge231 04-29-2001 01:03 AM

Maybe alot of people don't check out this section of the forum. Many people probably only look at sports related threads.

Brandon 04-29-2001 03:32 AM

Well, after writing an article and checking it out on Sports Central. I saw this Message Boards link and clicked it. Didn't like it at first, so I quit, then Marc encouraged me to start posting again.

Wedge231 04-29-2001 12:52 PM

Why didn't you like it? I love this board, some great people and a nice overall experience.

I think he is referring to back before we got vBulletin. If so, I can see why. :rolleyes:

Wedge231 04-29-2001 02:46 PM

eZ Board isn't doing so well now. They use popups now too.

iFroggy 04-29-2001 04:56 PM

Yeah, with the slowdown in Internet related advertising they brought out the big ads. :) However you can get them all taken out for like $5 I believe.

Wedge231 04-29-2001 07:05 PM

They made a Gold membership program and you pay for I think several months. Maybe $30 for 6 months...

Brandon 04-29-2001 10:57 PM

Yeah, that was before VBulletin, it wasn't the prettiest. But I've never been much of a message board guy. It's kinda grown on me since then though.

Wedge231 04-30-2001 08:07 PM

Same here. I am more of a instant messenger user guy, I don't like having to check out all these threads, etc. But it helps pass the time when I'm bored.

Jersey Devil 05-21-2001 04:14 PM

Marc brought me here ...
 
I've been on these boards (and Sports-Central) for a long time ... years and years ...

Wedge231 05-21-2001 09:41 PM

How many years did SC even have boards?

I remember when it was on Tripod with a black background..... :cool:

Two years, maybe? We were on Boardhost first, then ezboard, and finally, vBulletin.

Believe it or not, Nate and I still have screen shots of old SC designs. Maybe I'll start a new Lounge thread called "A trip down memory lane..." when I get some time. :)

NickHammy 05-21-2001 10:29 PM

Oh I remember those good days. Starting at geocities, and Vivek was helping you with the nintendo section...LOL:D . That was funny

Wedge231 05-21-2001 10:35 PM

It nice to see how successful SC has become. I was once a writer too. I don't think I did too well of a job though :(

loganfan 10-29-2001 05:48 PM

I was over on the "other SC".
It's down, I was fiending, and here I am.
It's nice to find somewhere to relate to, but I think I need to drag some more SoCals in here.;)

Ross 10-30-2001 10:22 AM

If you don't know what "the other SC" is, I do.

LoganFan comes from the Jim Rome Smack Chat boards, which, as he mentioned, recently crashed.

LF, have you been at Hostboard at all?

loganfan 10-30-2001 12:20 PM

I haven't, Ross, I'll check it out in my "free time".

SammySosa400 09-21-2002 01:07 PM

I found the Boards through " News Links from Len- Net's Entertainment Web
