    We need more Posting Fans!!



    Ok we need more posting fans on here. I do enjoy the fact that our small group of regular posters is fun and we all share different views.

    However I would like to have more of us challenging our thoughts and our knowledge. I think we can all agree that even when we do not agree we all learn something new about the team, the sport and our fans!

    I would challenge us all to try to get 3 other friends involved in the posting to add to the mix!

    I don't drink and all my Raven's fans friends DO post here.

    I've been really busy this semester finishing up my degree so I couldn't post that much. This off-season and next year I'll be doing much better.

    I'd love to see this board as busy as Orioles Hangout. Especially with the whole Tex thing going down right now, that board has been hoppin' lately. It would be great to see this place get something going like that. I'll be putting the word out when I can.

    something regarding the Orioles is "hoppin"? That's a good thing!

    One small flaw in this board is the threads all too often get side-tracked away from real debate.

    Another is that the threads get too long when people 'quote' full posts including videos etc. The idea of a quote is that you take the most relevent bit from a post - not the whole thing.

    It's still a very good board

    Ever thought of posting onto the UKR's section

    UK I will post with you guys too now. I also agree that to many people do not know how to copy and quote one line so they hit the Quote button and drop in the full post.

    As for the thread gets side tracked, I for one enjoy that since it shows the debate moving towards new thoughts. I like the challenge.

    I understand that sometimes we get used to things one way and once that changes we feel like it is going down hill. However, one thing I know from being on the internet since GENet (long before AOL and Prodigy) is that groups of posters and chatters grow over years. People might see something and start posting. Maybe even a basher who only can get excitement from hateful post, however they tend to go away in a couple weeks and only the true people that fit in stay.

    Some of you were on the other boards that merged into this one and are now friendly posters even if you do not agree all the time.

    That is the goal ..... More posters and more friends !!!

    One thing to remember about the UKR's that post is that we are 6 hours in front of you all. This means that the debate, when you might have wanted to post an immediate reply, may have moved on greatly from one of out posts.

    TL hosted us on this board after the Insider / merger. We got 'trolled' on a lot when the boards merged. We needed a clear area for some admin bits as well as a board for chatting to the rest of you. I think the deal was sealed when Admin came up with the and smilies.

    I blame Darb. I remember when he really *did* kill joo with his sword thing.

    East Coast is 5 hours behind us UKRaven. Do you wonder why you always turn on to catch the kickoff and its halftime. Only joking.

    I went off the boil posting and reading,as I found it was having an affect on how I thought and regarded the Ravens.When people would jump off the roof like the world was ending,it would really sour my Raven experience.So I keep myself to the UKRaven section now.And enjoy the Ravens like I did back in 96.
    Happy to have a team to finally follow.

    Nothing will compare to the first years I joined the Ravens Insider boards.
    And they had a strong group of characters posting.And it was a joy reading what they had to say.

    No you don't. I can't stand having to work through 700 posts when 650 of them are not relevant to the discussion. That site is nothing but people who agree with each other and when you don't you get negative feedback and chastised by the people that have all the time in the world to sit on the site all day and post. No thanks.

    This place has enough posters that keep the threads to a reasonable amount.

    Re: We need more Posting Fans!!

    I'd love to post more often. I read through these boards on a daily basis, but for the life of me I don't know why. Every topic seems to follow the same 1 or 2 patterns: thought stated, a few rebuttals, 1 or 2 posters take it way to personally, idea gets lost, I fall asleep.---or---thought posted, someone over-reacts, people over-react the opposite way, let the emotional rollercoaster begin.

    The need for some sort of mood-leveling prescription by half the people on these boards is overwhelming. Frankly, I just don't feel the need to try and voice a sane, level headed, even-keeled response to someone who is saying the Ravens are Super-Bowl bound in one post, and then declaring us worse than the Bengals in the next.

    So, I read quietly, not typing a single letter, in my darkened office, drinking by myself, and sobbing ever so slightly.
