As you can see, we have added three new fora and brought back one of the retired ones... Also, much of the board has been shuffled around.

We're not kicking the wrestling fans off of the site, but it seemed right to move the wrestling section down as it is a lower priority for both Chris and I than it has been in the past.

You may have noticed that the time zone is now reflecting Central time as well. If your time zone is displaying strangely, please go to your profile and check to make sure that it is set properly.

The > and < will not work on the new fora until you mark them read one time.

Please try to post in the correct forum - we'll probably continue to move some of the old posts from Random into the correct new areas, but it may take a while.

I'm a little bummed, in that it was wrestling that led me here in (or the old EZBoard) in the first place, and it's probably taken a little less significance to me in recent months as well. Acknowledging this means acknowledging I'm getting older.

I like the new variety, personally. It's more specific. Good job, folks!




There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

Although wreslting isn't a top priority for me anymore count me as one of those sad to see it drop. I'm not even sure if quality wrestling can make me feel as I used to ... I think it probably could though.

It'll be interesting to see if the changes bring in a different crowd or not.

I like the changes, nice idea. This site moved past being a wresting board long ago - I think the move was for the best.

Well, I'll come out of the closet, my swansong with wrestling was WM20. I haven't really enjoyed it since early 2001, and the interest started to decline way back in 98, but I stuck around hoping it would come back, it just became more meaningless clutter.

Most visions of what wrestling should be is forged in the youth, and I know that isn't EVER coming back. So...how about an old school wrestling thread while we are at it?

Changes should be good, the only thing, and I don't know how to phrase this correctly, but since your no longer targeting wrestling fans maybe have some catch phrase or something as to the purpose of the board. Just seems to be a void up at top of the front page, don't know if that will draw well or not.

Sheer panic...then I found the wrestling folder. I have a feeling this is a way of de-emphasizing that it is what started this board?!? Anyways, COOL, NEW, FRESH, and improved W!

To Guru and CRZ,

Nice job with the changes. You two do not get enough credit for the job you do.

I must say: "It's different - I don't like it." just on principle.

The return of the Ladies' Forum means that I find-out that all kinds of people that I didn't know are ladies. (Dude, he's not a dude - he's a she!)

I guess we really aren't Wieners anymore.

Like the changes - though it hurts to see the big slash thru the hockey folder (Bettman, the owners and the players brought that on themselves but that is a post for another time & forum)

I'm a bit confused. Wrestling is no longer a priority of the board? I always think of this as the wrestling message board, and wrestling is the only section of the board I really even bother with. I have to say this really surprised me. I'm not really complaining..as the wrestling stuff IS still around and I'm aware I could just find another board if I became too unpleased with this one. But I thought that this was a wrestling board with other topics as side options. It seems wrestling is one of the side options now.
The changes are fine for the most part, again I'm not complaining. I just get the feeling I may have had the wrong idea about this board.

In the beginning, this was just a wrestling board, with the other areas as side options. However, as the board grew, and CRZ/Guru grew away from wrestling being their main focus, it became obvious that this was a board for everything, and wrestling was just a part of that. These changes reflect that.

I think the 11,204 threads that aren't wrestling (or Guest Columns, or Site Bashing) would argue that this is more than just a wrestling board.

Well, let me talk about this change from my perspective.

My last new thread in the wrestling forum was on April 9th. Before that, it was January 22nd.

I watch Impact about once every two weeks. I've deleted the last 10 or so Smackdown's off of my DVR without watching them. I haven't watched RAW except with liberal use of the FF button in the last 6 months. In the last two years, I've gotten Wrestlemania as the only PPV as far as I can remember.

Chris hasn't written about wrestling for almost two years now.

In my opinion, this community is much larger than the wrestling forum, and so when I was talking with Chris about moving some posts out of the Random folder, it made sense to put the areas that we currently use and enjoy above the area that we do not use and enjoy.

We can always move them around later.

In the mean time, I'm working on a way to exclude forums from your index page. This will only work for registered users.

Anyway, it's not the end of the world. Change is a good thing.

I really do miss my One Stop Shopping that was the Random forum. But I guess if the board continues to grow (is it growing?) that we could get to a point where the whole first page could be filled with posts within an hour as it is in some other places.
