    I hope you play FF, Fishy. I always follow areally good year (silver/detteam medal) with a terrible season. You can get easy revenge for the two beat downs you received at my hands last season!! We can talk crap right on the front page (you will win the game(s) but don't get too happy because you will still get clobbered by me playing the dozens. :brick:

    You can just read. The downside is that you will be 100% responsible for not getting sucked into replying!

    I've had to do it. It is doable to read and not reply. Not easy, but doable.

    14th spot for JJ would be quite a fall for the guy who once touted for getting his leg farthest up the wall.

    I think someone mentioned on Facebook the other day that we needed a PF/FB name/cross reference list.

    I concur, everyone chimed in during the first day or two who they were, but I already lost track. Probably need someone here to do it at the end of the week once everyone has checked in and then we would know who is making all of the classic posts...

    and have the name list pinned for reference.... I spend more time right now deciding who said what then what they said. But from the small sample we have so far it seems to be working well... only draw back I see right now is a chat during the game.... is that something somebody could help out with. When I was gaming back in the day we had vent for chats... not sure what is out there these days.

    Maybe this is a chance to reboot perceptions and judge the posts for what they say, rather than who is saying it. :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:

    I think the kids use Discord now. It is a chat server that has voice chat capabilities.

    We will figure it out. I joined some other Pistons' Facebook groups so I can copy best practices. Of course, feel welcome to offer all ideas and any feedback.

    This is very true. I hadn't realized how much I picked up folks avatars here while reading posts and how it swayed me one way or another.

    Perhaps I missed it. Has anyone asked about a chat room opening a couple of hours before closing the place once the date and time have been determined? I think it would be nice to *aggravate people one last time* *hurl a few parting insults* say our final farewells and share our final memories of the forum. Or in some cases bid adieu to or fellow forumites. Many of us joined up within hours of each other so as someone said "close the circle". Food for thought.

    Don't be a wimp. Do it here and now. I promise CJ won't ban you for it.

    It is official that we're done at the end of the month, Slippy informed our host to turn off the machine then.

    I am hanging around to catch stragglers, and send out a couple more emails.

    We've had a LOT of people come over, and I am hoping for a few more. It is different, but when we moved here from the DetNews, that was really different too.

    Woow Roscoe! I did not know anything about the age of this forum, and all that had cost to you.

    Although I am a late member, I have enjoyed a lot.i am proud of it .I have learned a lot about Pistons and English ;)
    I have no Facebook, I never wanted it, but I think this is a reason to create an account.
    All I have to say is thanks for this forum and Sorry again for my English.
    I see you all in Facebook soon.
    Muchas gracias Amigo!

    I guess the situation is that I received 3 new friend requests in the past two days and I figured out who one if them was from PF... other two could have been forum members, but I don't know?.....:noidea:
