PM me. I'm moving on my friend and you should too.

 

yeah, i did read this post. (who wouldn't LOL?).

 

Honestly there are other great forums out there. And certain ones where 90% of the people i miss from here now reside. The other 10% post on both to this day. And then there are new people with apparently much to offer.

 

Lit you made your bed my friend. I think you're an intelligent person. I also think you ruined this site (you did). Probably a good bit of that had to do with the former owner. I don't know anything about that. I don't really care. But i did read the Microscopes/Quix/Lit thread on another site and, trust me, you aren't well regarded in this oh so important (LOL) on-line buffalo bills community.

 

The absurdity of this all is actually quite amusing to me. I mean, it's a freaking internet forum about a bad NFL team in an obscure market... But, it was one of my favorite things to do. And it was only that because of the amazing contributors this place has had over the years.

 

Even Lit has contributed. But not in a very good way.

 

it took me 2 freaking weeks to get approved on another bills site. They (somehow, i don't know the ways of the internet) knew i had 14k posts on another site. And they knew it was this poisoned well of shame that i came from. And believe me, they were concerned that i was a hack. What a load. Lit not only ruined this site, he ruined it for anyone that wanted to leave.

 

Anyway, i really will miss you all (those of you that aren't the same person anyway). I don't have proof of any of this, of course. I'm too freaking busy living in the real world for that shit.

 

But where there's smoke...

 

That's why i'm gone. Not that i matter around here, but it is what it is.

 

I agree that back in the day, the Range was a great place. I was in California, and looking desperately for Bills news/discussions. This was the best site for that.

 

Now, as everyone has already mentioned ad nausium this place is not the same, and will never be.

 

But there are other sites, I've been signed up on Zone, and the "official" site (sucks), and even on Finheaven. I've tried three times over the last 8 years to register at TBD, but I never got a response. They never answered letting me know I wasn't allowed or anything, just no response.

 

Anyway, I'll still hang around here, I'm a a woefully pathetic Bills fan, and even with all the new media available, I'll always take a peak at what's going on.

Solid post.

 

For what it's worth, there is no place like this place used to be.

 

Social media. Twitter. Facebook. Destroyed it.

 

Media evolved.

 

BillsZone is more populous but it's still barely a fraction of what this place used to be.

 

Times have changed.

 

I don't think that's it Lit. For what it's worth, there has been no drop off on the Fin sites due to social media. The only drop off I've noticed is here. If the Zone has had a drop off too, maybe is a Bills fanbase thing?

the original range was absolutely epic. it was a combination of perfect timing and rick literally driving all around the country to promote it. it was clearly THE dominant bills board on the planet. it was one of the most dominant private fan sites for all major sports, pretty amazing for a small mkt nobody cares team like the bills

 

honestly it only had one way to go - down. and go down it did, pushing rick to the brink of (into?) insanity. once he realized it would never return to a big part of his financial and personal identity, he melted down and took the site with him

 

really its the range by name only. mighta been better just to rename the place so that ppl arent prone to whining incessantly about the once-in-a-lifetime olden days

Not to mention VB has not kept up its software with the trends and has been a PITA if youre an admin for a number of reasons.

 

Once people started connecting with their MB buddies on FB, they felt the need to go to the boards less. Like Lit says, they can make their own groups or pages, stay connected, and its FREE. Overhead for fees, licenses, not to mention time spent as an admin add up. The running joke at DH board was that I was the original MartialTalk.com widow.

That's the sad reality we deal with when technology makes progress. I remember in the 80's we had dial-up Bulletin Boards, those things were alway bumping. When the internet came home with it's fancy message boards & chat every latched onto that and the dial-up scene died. I feel like we're going through another cycle now with the Social Media becoming everybody's new favorite. The days of people sitting at a computer pecking away at a message board are going the way of the dodo. :niterider

We lost a local bulletin board where I am, and the f***book that the owner preferred has no discussion. Just pictures and occasional headlines. Im not saying you cant have discussion groups, but in this case it hasn't happened and I let the owner know of my displeasure in person, although his repeated line was "the public has spoken" due to all the FB "friends" the page had. Most of them were probably unaware of the message board, or what one even was.

 

Very little if any discussion in reality, he just saw it as a better way to announce planned events and such, which I dont disagree with. **** f***book. The range would do better if it's f***book page actually directed people to the board rather than having them get their FB fix and run.

This is yet another instance I need to call out the admins for having the popcorn-eating emoticon in the sh*tbox but not in real life posts. They refuse to respond, let alone do anything about it. Something is wrong with that, in my opinion. I'm going to make a word version until I can get a "second", because the admins dislike me. Seriously, someone second my motion for more emoticons for posts instead of just the sh*tbox, please.

Shit, why does it not come up on mine or for others who have said the same thing? When I was punished for Meathead's threats and Wagons anger, maybe that was taken away too? I can only see a few compared to when I make a sh*tbox entry. Thanks for at least being the first person to reply, regardless of your intent.

Weird, you should be able to just type "popcorn" (replace the quotations with colons) and it should work. :niterider

Thanks man. :popcorn: Is that how to insert images into the sh*tbox as well?

 

And what's the obsession with colons on here? A few hours ago a member talked about someone inserting a finger into their colon.

If the Fins message boards are still as strong as they were 10 years ago, then THEY are the exception. Not us.

 

So youre saying the Fins have a better fanbase than us? I'm kind of hurt, Lit. I thought the Bills had better fans and the Fin fans were pathetic?

 

I'm not sure if I should be happy that there is supposedly proof this board has not been mismanaged numerous times, or feel sad that Fin fans are more robust than my fellow Bills fans. Fin seems trustworthy, especially relative to others on here. I might knock the guy on occasion in good humor, but he seems to be a stand up guy based on my longterm observation of him.

All that typing involved jus isnt my style some nights. I like the button clicks. Anyhow, I don't mean to sound like an ingrate, I'm mostly joking. Youve been helpful. Fact of the matter, I think you deserve to be one. You are a proven good poster and are good natured and helpful, even with rascals like myself. I know I need a second here, per Roberts Rules of Laws, but I hereby nominate you to be a moderator. You don't have to be like Michael, yet instilling a semi semblince of order and direction is needed here. Propogate the good fruit, gently pruin that which is needed to expediate growth. I be fading out of this, but I see you have adopted the Good Lord into your life, may he guide you with your decisions. Continue to follow the Golden Rule, and I predict a long run of success. The mantle may seem heavy at times, but not always, and the sense of reward will make it well worth it.

 

I have carried the torch this far, but I to find one worthy to place my trust in for a matter of such grave import. Use your adaopt a bill as strength, and when in doubt ask what he would do. And if you listen very hard, the truth will come to you at last, when all are one and one is all. I think this paragraph may fit more into the spirituality thread. I have found you, you are the chosen. This is what I will call you for as long as I am still able. I'm not sure if you are a proven closer like me, but there will be times when you'll need to be. I hope you shall blossom as a butterfly who now does his objective, contained within these words for one who had eyes to see. Help the disadvantaged, and shine the light of truth on these electonically dancing heathens. I cant practice now, but it isone of the last things on my bucket list, to participate in the jackassery in a much more effective way than those who have shamefully belittled the art into a laughing stock. Much of this board, and it's traditions have been filed. It's like having mostly 2nd -4th stringers(even practice squadders) in, and most of them have lost a step or 2 for whatever reasons temporarily, while others have fallen off the table. Wait, I think that's a metaphor for when a chick no longer is appealing. It often can be likened to the point of no return, except for those who are exceptionally driven and dterred by little.

 

I want to initiate you here, and have you take the yolk and realize a better range, even if the forces of Satan() himself presents roadbumps. I have faith in you, and in all the good members of the board, whom I believe are a majority, even if they can at times be an even more worthless lot of ingrates than those they'd fight, and it could bring back stark images og George Orewell's brilliant novel, Animal Farm. Or thw Who's "Wont get fooled again". this goes for everyone, even if The Lord is the leader. You must make sure to supplicate him when necessary, and make him into the proven closer he was destined to come, like like I once was.

 

With Al Bundy up there, you may be familiar when he went to visit the football god on the mountain, and after plenty of tomfoolery, returned to the commoners with his 10 commandments. I remember at least 1 involved hoothers. Remember, Ozzy Ozzborne does not post here, it's up to all of us to participate. The path will not always be easy. Liken it unto Dareus having to run on occasion. If that rotund, protruding mound of beef can do it now and then, so can you all. Lord, will you take the Oath to honor and uphold the Constitution like our government officials or anyone paid by them to carry guns(police and soldiers) must do when they are officially sworn in? Sometimes opportunity doesn't knock again. This is your chance to be immortalized when you finally set our people free from the oft-undetectable ties that bind. Be the closer you were born to be and the balance in the force will be restored on here and it will rise to greatness against all predictions(other than Fin's and mine). Liken it to being your first day as the joker in the deck and project, those feelings of good will and see which seeds fall upon fertile ground and bear fruit, I wish thee godspeed, The Chosen.While I am here, report to me. When I am no longer, report to finnasty. After that if it reaches the point where all looks lost, you must exercise great faith and report to darys, so that with success it would have to seem extraordinary, if not a bona fide miracle.

 

As the ce up your sleeve, when a newb with no background arrives,test their mettle with an assessment of your own measure. The only other rules are that you are forbidden to become a transvestite, forcate with a transvestite, or allow people to swirl thinly veiled rumors that the true owner of this site is a transvestite. Substituting the word tranny to make it sound more familiar is also stricly forbidden. Just keep repeating to yourself, "I am the chosen", until you internalize it, and it begins to flow naturally like an icy rocky mountain stream, or the endless sea that we will all see again.

:rofl: That's the funniest shit I've read in awhile. I'm sure you can spare a couple keystrokes and upload some images, you've already woven a novel into this place. As for being mod I've already done it and won't do it again. My life can be hectic and it's hard to make time for this place. I'm only here now because I'm on convelescent leave, soon I'll be back in the dungeon working mad hours again. :poop:

this place is weird. It's kind of freaking me out of late.

 

I have totally enjoyed my time here but it has become something else... It has become the playground for weird people that live through numerous on-line personalities. This sort of detachment from the real world freaks me out and i don't want to be a part of it.

 

Man what a cool site this use to be though. It's been real.

 

Sad day for me because i love this bad team of ours and love posting about it. More than anything, i've really enjoyed what everyone else had to offer.

 

I just don't know how any serious human being could possibly want to stay a part of the train wreck this on-line community has become.

 

I don't know who's at fault... I think LIt might be a psychopath. Maybe i'm wrong.

 

Doesn't matter. This place sucks ass and i'm done.

 

Peace out home boys (and girls). Maybe i'll see you somewhere else.

 

probably not. It's been fun though.

 

Shame it had to end this way.

 

anyway, i'm signing off. and RIP buffalorange.

 

To those that contributed. Thanks for the fun times.

 

Yikes, I guess this fake user account has been pulling this act for even longer than I remember.

 

I'm guessing he's glad he chose me to single out and give him the special attention he obviously is craving. Dangit, where is that Pats are done thread? Brewman, I give you permission. Even a well mannered Pats fan is more welcome here than the joker jk123.
