I'm pretty sure navigation would become even worse. mg:
On a similar note -- does anyone recall an old listserv for fans? It was pretty active and I recall Rafael Vela was one of the major posters
I did post some on the usenet, something like alt.nfl.cowboys
Re: Austin 360
WV Cowboy, VA Cowboy (Jerry-hater), LT Fan, Ravi, Ben-in-Austin, MT Fan, lurker, RP/RS12/RXP, ninja, Cal CBFan, Doomsday101, TheFamily, were the mainstays. Probably forgetting a couple.
Single thread format, limited to like 100 characters per post, zero features, etc. No active moderation.
Was nevertheless a great place for a long time until a couple posters decided to ruin it (Diego & JEM) for fun. Caused me to look for other places. I lurked at DMN for a bit and then found the older versions of this site - masevo? or similar, and encouraged folks to move here. Many were reluctant because A360 had been such a great site but eventually most of the above moved here or eventually to DCC when that split occurred.
One of my favorite A360 posters, in retrospect was NinerHater (I forget how he abbreviated it). I don't know that I have ever encountered another poster like him. He was eyore to the max about the teams prospects but never was critical of other posters - a very rare quality.
Diego and JEM:lmao: That brings back some memories. Actually, JEM was a poster here several years ago. I haven't seen him post here lately, though.
Yeah, I remember him posting here. He had to clean up his childish act though since there were moderators on this site. I have zero respect for people who would ruin a good thing for others just because they can.
Yes, memories, but not good ones.
You ever post on Austin360's "You Make the Call" comment page? A bunch of zone posters did back then.
Sam, :laugh2: is no longer. Now, it's only :laugh2:
The old 370 Series Stuff I'll bet.
It was not a bad site.
I remember being in the AOL fan boards it was crazy and people were full attack mode all the time! Did anyone ever use the AOL ones?
Me either. I even questioned my sanity for even caring about what went on in the CBZ political zone back in it's hay day. People are nuts.
