I don't think that is exactly an issue.
Lee used to post game recaps for the "troops" (the U.S. military). Basketbills wanted to make sure you alerted the troops about the forum shutting down.
Many things have changed over the years. But not all... I always write it off to Laimbeer's formal education terminating after 3rd grade. Or drunkeness on weekends. Like I said, some things never change...although now his drunkeness is no longer limited only to weekends.
LOL. You guys ... One for the road I suppose. Nothing wrong with being home-schooled. I am an autodidact myself.
Saw the title. Is the forum closing?
A request to anyone joining the PF Facebook group. Please provide your PF username. Have most figured out but there are a couple not ringing any bells.
I just tried some of those other forum's you put out there. EEEWWW, I don't like them. One look and I can tell they suck compared to here.
LOL. We have a pinned post now where new members are supposed to announce themselves. A lot of people made a new post when they arrived.
Before this place closes shop for good, there are business matters to be settled...
I don't get it.
Can't close the place until Vinny formally acknowledges us another title in the TPG HOF
Sorry to see the board go but life does move on. I don't follow the Pistons or basketball as closely. One, I don't like the direction of the play in the NBA with the three ball domination. Two, the Pistons can't seem to get relevant with a good team. And three, I don't like the Team NBA's that the players are making. But I can't help peeking to keep up on the latest Piston talk anyway and post still now and then. I started after the Det. News board folded in 2005 I believe. I have one amusing memory for everyone. One night, I think it was in the year after the championship, Micro (Roscoe) and Lee were arguing back and forth. I was on with a separate comment. Finally, I think Micro posted to Lee, something like we two and LA Piston are the only ones still on the board--like time to sign out for the evening already. It was very late by mid-west time. In those championship days, we couldn't get enough of the Pistons. Three guys wanting more...But we put it to sleep until the next day and started all over. When the Pistons were really good, any little flaw became a big discussion. Kind of counter intuitive. You would think just the opposite. I will probably try and get on facebook. I am starting to political blog so I might use Facebook some anyway as I am approaching retirement in the next year and will have more time.
Send him an email, and remember to be nice. He has had a rough year.
I actually remember this. We were so rabid when the team was good. I remember this forum pumping out 200 posts every day, day after day after day. And the post quality was generally pretty high. The packed game chats, with nearly 25 people in them night after night. It's hard to maintain that sort of interest when the team starts to degrade. I'd love to have you with us on Facebook when you're ready.
Remember you on Detnews and here on PF in the early days...all good. Interested to learn about your political blog. Please PM a link.
I know I haven't been on the forum for that long now, but I have been playing fantasy sports with this group for over ten years now. I'll miss all of the unique personalities and interesting but different perspectives on the Pistons and all sports. This forum was a great outlet for so many people. I never had a place to share my passion for statistics and sports before here. I enjoyed all these years even if the Pistons weren't all that good. It won't be the same and there will definitely be a small hole in my heart when it's gone. Not sure if I'll migrate to Facebook. I tend to use Facebook for more personal matters. Finally, thank you to @roscoe36 and @Slippy and all the other admins for your effort and patience over the years. I appreciate all the work that must go on behind the scenes to make this site as smooth and functional as it is. I wish everyone the best in all their endeavors!
@Slippy Most of us realize the forum in all likelihood won't be saved and that it's a done deal after much consideration. But we are going through the grief cycle for death. First step is denial. I hope you play fantasy football. You and @MotownPride and @linwood were my first real friends here and I don't want to lose touch with you.
Some forums are meant to be saved....others should just slippy away quietly. Good-bye...........
It is hard to overstate what an absolute force of nature @Lee356 was back in the day.
