Default Texanstalk.com versus HT message boards

Anyone have any idea why this board seems to always be more active than the official message boards on the Texans website? I usually post on both but I always check to see who has the most active users and this one always has more......like right now it it 49-1 for the TT boards.

Maybe because this is where the true fans come.

This board was "THE OFFICIAL MESSAGE BOARD".....Until they changed the format and alot of people didn't like the new board. This board has more members and gets more hits, because this is the original Texans message board.

It's like if someone brought back and hosted the old "TOMB", that would instantly become the #1 Titans message board.

Default Re: Texanstalk.com versus HT message boards

for me it goes like this

a few years ago. I used to go to the official boards all the time and met everyone there and would lurk on the TT board The official board was getting different software and the Texans were kind enough to let TT have all the post history and software, and Hookem and others took all that and incorporated into this site. To me this became the official board in my eyes, and most of the people from the official board moved over to TT.

I did go to the Houston Texans board at first (after they redid the site) but it seemed very strange. this board seems to be more mature than the official board (IMO ) and however I haven't been to the official board in a long time (probably over a year) so things might have changed since then


guess you didn't ask for my testomony

This, except for going back and lurking on the other site. I never go back there, this place is much better. When the switch happened, all of the regulars came here and it just seemd like the natural place to be. It felt comfortable, like the bar in Cheers.

This isn't the official Texans board? In my opinion, there is no doubt where the real Texans fans hang out The rest are amateurs... take that for what it's worth

I joined this board before the 2-14 season. When they re-did the official board, I went over there. But like others have said, it did not feel right. So I found this place again, and have never been back there.

Default Re: Texanstalk.com versus HT message boards

I lurked when this was the official board for about a year or more and then decided to join. After the switch over here, I didn't know all of our history had been moved. I tried staying with the "new" official board but just gave up and was pretty upset my favorite place for Texans news seem to disappear. And then, out of nowhere I saw a message in my junk mail, a response to a thread I was subscribed to before, I followed the link and BAM! I was back in business and miss several months of what others seem to already know.

Cjeremey, you mentioned it felt like Cheers, here was my first post when I re-discovered this board.

I had not thought about the Official board in a while. I signed up for an account over there in 3-31-2007 and have not signed in since 5-7-2007.

This

I go there during the season and draft time occasionally.

This MB is the best I've seen in the entire NFL. Thanks Hookem.

Having the NSZ and other sports section on the MB helps keep the family together during the offseason. The official MB site took these options away.

I like having a place to go where we can debate politics and disagree. But wish each other Happy Birthday,offer condolences and offer help (if needed) to our fellow MB members. Like extended family

Default Re: Texanstalk.com versus HT message boards

This is a privately owed board, by Hookum Horns, thus we have a lot more freedom. Maybe I shouldn't say this, but, I have to be honest. I liked the old TT much better, before the switch. I understand why Hookum had to acquire the old MMB, but, the old TT was more like family, not as many jerks around as we have now. BUT, there are no words to express how much I appreciate what Hookum has done for all us TEXAN fans! Sometimes you just have to take the bad with the good!

TK really nails it! No rep, no decent "other" discussion. A lot of the football discussion there is very childish (seems like a lot of "are the Texans perfect or only awesome" analysis).

Of course (like most people I think that) people who agree with me on things are really smart and people who disagree with me - not so much. Even so, on this board even the people who disagree with me (usually) make a more coherent and logical argument than most of the people on the other board.

That is the main reason I visit this board way more than the HT board. The people on this board just seem to be more knowledgeable about football than the people over at HT.
