How many of you have come over from other boards?

Run into some old friends from another group or board? Want to do a little schmoozing, talk over old times? Or just some off topic stuff, then this is the place.

How many of you have come over from other boards?

Post by Funkytown » Fri Mar 22, 2013 9:43 am

Hello! I'm Melanie (obviously you can tell that by my screen name), and I've been blogging under the screen name "MelanieMFunk" for about 5 years or so now. I was one of the top posters on the official Vikings fan site of "WeAreVikingsFans.com" and then I was recently one of the top posters on Vikings.com's message board. Both have shut down. WAVF ended a couple years ago, and the Vikings.com message board just randomly decided to shut down last week. I have no clue why. But either way, I'm just curious on how many people have come over from WAVF or the Vikings.com message board? And what were your screen names over there?

Thanks!

Melanie

Hello! Yeah, I saw that you came over. I saw that Jeffbleedspurple did, too--as well as tjbucvik23. So, that means 4 of us have come over so far. I'm just curious how many others will--and how many others have come over from the past.

I was back on Alt.sports.MinnesotaVikings or whatever it was called. Back in the late 90's. It was a Usenet group and was getting over run by trolls. Than I believe this site was started and everyone that was a good poster followed to here.


This is the only place I really read and post about Vikings. I lurk the KFAN Vikes board but it is filled with so much stupidity, immaturity, morons etc, that I never did take the time to even register.

I love talking about the Vikings but I don't need all the immaturity some people bring.So I basically just post here, not very often I might add, and read this board for my fix.

I was on Alt.sports.football.mnvikings too until it was run over by trolls and Kansas Viking (Mike) started this board - been visiting it almost every day since but I don't post much - have to admit that my interest (for all things NFL) waned considerably since bounty gate (even gave up my season tix)

As Greg and NDVikeFan have mentioned, a lot of the people here (myself included) came from alt.sports.football.mnvikings. It was a good newsgroup for years before the trolls finally destroyed it. This has been my Vikings "home" ever since. :)

Favre didn't wear purple long enough to wear off the stench of green and gold. So I still don't like him to much.

But that's all history, so good enough for me ;)
Well, I was extremely bummed. I know a lot of us were. It sucked! It still sucks! lol As far as you not liking Favre and getting a hard time for it--you'll be alright! Rub some dirt on it! :D

I'm a very rare poster (avid reader), but I came from the newsgroup also.

'Sir Francis' destroyed that awesome newsgroup, but this place is better :)

SKOL VIKINGS!
It's nice to see more familiar members here. I guess this is the site for now since the Vikings.com message board is down for good. Just like another member said, I typed in, "Minnesota Vikings Message Board," and this was the first site that popped up.

I like this site though. It's much more active than the old site and I can only imagine how active this site will be when the season starts. Hopefully we wont have to deal with guys like Plainsman. You'll get a break from RudyTudy. And Melanie wont have to debate with Lethal and his "stat sheets" lol
