I registared again and got my old name back because I don't want anyone else using it on a Texans Board. But, I think I'll be staying over here now.

Glad they made the decision as I will now call in there more often. I know some people will stick here but I'm going to flit between here, there and my own board.

Ask a mod, they switched me from my previous user name. As for the other site, I may log in to keep my name over there, but I'll use that more as my alternate source of info. Like others, I'm liking this house.

Thanks again to the original TTr's for welcoming their HT relos.

It has been about 2 weeks since I visited there; guess my feelings were hurt when they did not listen to the fans. It just never felt the same since the original change, you know? That's the problem with losing fans. You take the risk of never getting them back.

That's weird. While my password no longer worked, when I requested it be reset, I got an e-mail instantly. I'd try it again. Since you enter your e-mail address, and that's where they send it, I don't know how it would go somewhere else.

Thanks for the support of those that are planning on sticking around here. Since this board is run by us fans and not by a corporate entity we don't have to worry about it going away or changing as long as the fans are happy and want it to stay the way it is. I too posted a lot on the main board before however have no plans or need to go back as long as the majority of quality posters stay here.

BTW, I'll be back in the states on Sunday just in time for preseason to start. I'll be more active when I am back, I have limited internet access over here.

Thank you for your support, Hookem! This place wouldn't exist without you, and speaking for myself, I can't tell you enough how much I appreciate you opening the doors and inviting us all in.

I think there will be a place for both forums. TexansTalk has a very mature fan base, even to the point of being able to support a 'smack' forum for jabbing at/with rival fans. But it takes some maturity on the part of posters to allow that kind of interchange to happen, because many times internet arguments just devolve into flame wars.

The official board would never work with a smack forum, and due to the constant influx of new members through the official team site, the forum must be heavily policed to enforce the rules and keep it from becoming a pile of spam mush. I can't even begin to tell you how many posts/threads were deleted at the old boards, and how many posters had to be banned because of it. And being that it is owned by the team, there has to be tighter modding to protect their interests.

So I think there is a place in Texansland for both. Like Vinny mentioned, many folks over here know each other, and we tailgate together and have a great community that continues to grow. We are friends at the local neighborhood Cheers bar. The official site will be more of a sports bar, where people don't necessarily know each other as well, so the internet posturing is much more evident.
