Okay, that scared the holy beejeezus out of me coming in here to find THAT layout. I love this place, but EZBoard reminds me of much less good times in my life, so that layout just made curl up and cry a little. That and ALL THE YELLOW!!!! BLINDING!

Remember on the EZ Board there were all of those annoying ads?

Yeah... me too.

It's not permanent. It's just a reminder (and a shameless ploy on my part.)

I go away from my computer for a couple of days, & look what happens. This is hideous! The worst is probably the teal stripes all over the world, left on my retinas from the red stripes on the board. Are we sure this isn't causing permanent damage??? I think I'm getting heart palpatations besides -- anybody got any nitro glycerine?

Here's the short version from me - CRZ will probably weigh in on this later.

Four years ago we set up the first message board for Slashwrestling.com. Technically, I set the EZ-Board up some time in October and we launched it to the world on November first.

We left EZ-Board in January of 2002. Technically this board came online in December of 2001, but the first server had to be transported to San Jose at Christmas-time.

When we left the EZ-board it was pretty much a hell-hole of pop-up ads and giant, annoying banner ads. The site has been pretty much ad free since then, but as a throwback for this week, we're going to run ads.

I'm also doing this for a less dramatic reason - I also want to know how many impressions we aren't getting from running ads to the regular users, and this is pretty much the only way that I can tell. So - you get ads temporarily.

Do we also get the flashback colors for a week? I swear, between this and the Grey W Tuesday, it's like you're deliberatelt tempting the few Blues users you have.

Kudo's for taking the time to have the board look like it took a complete 180.

I never could understand EZBoard. You figure with that EZSupporter crap they would allow for a better interface.

I just got a cable modem and I still find EZ slow as hell.

Ha ha, I think it's TOTALLY EXCELLENT.

I also don't mind that ad down the side at all. Does it have to be clicked upon to get you guys anything, or is it being there enough?

I don't mind it as I had it set as my background already. You don't even notice the ads and if having a few banners can keep this going then I for one am fine with it.

    ... seriously, I don't see any ads.
I've found banner ads at the bottom and top of the screens.

Anyhow, I first joined the board when it was known as Wienerville (on SlashWrestling) so I missed out on this part of history. These colours are....unique, to say the least. :-)

Can eitehr Zim fill us in on the inspiration behind Wienerville and Wienerboard (the names?)?

You mean there's a way to see the board like THIS all the time.

I actually like the color scheme... gives the place more of an attitude.

I DO like the clock. Is that going to be permanent?

I haven't been around that long, but I think it's safe to say that things have improved drastically over the years.
