    Well, I logged in on the main website, and they took "boards" off for now. I guess they are still forwarding everything over. If they were going to switch back to that, why did they even go with those dumb boards in the first place?

    Turns out my profile is still there. I just had to change my password.

    Good to know that they improved the board, but I'm cool here.

    yep, pretty much.

    The front office heard the voice of fans and decided to override a corporate decision. Power to the people!

    All the cool people are at TexansTalk, tho'. :fans:

    You should try him at the red courtesy phone.
    I think he disconnected the white one.

    Exactly. I don't think I will be going back though. I already feel right at home here. They made a big mistake over there.

    It seems like official NFL boards are pretty lame in general. Lots of flame wars, trolls, and people that just don't write very well.

    It's nice to know that I can go back there if I want, but I don't see much of a reason. Almost everybody that I really like to read is over here anyway.

    Big thanks to Nick on this one and I'm not sure he really enjoyed the last transition of webmasters either. A few things were broke in the move but the good news is that the new webmasters listen, and Nick has a genuine interest in pleasing the fans. vbulletin produces a really powerful and dynamic commercial grade message board software that is easy for the end user and easy to administrate regardless of the forum size....long run it's going to be a win/win for all the fans. The official site will be more of a catch all for all the fans since it is on the official site and will tend to 'surge' more often. imo, HPF and Texanstalk are both in position to flourish as private forums since the communities are a little tighter and a higher % of the fans have actually met. I think with all the blogging sites and with all 3 of the main community message boards all revised we are as overhauled as the Texans offense with Green and Schaub in 07.
