No post before or after first football game. Site done. Right?
Very disappointing if so.09/04/2018 at 10:59 AM #133954
Tau, fyi nearly all the regulars have moved to a different site.09/05/2018 at 3:30 PM #133955
Yep, many are at the new site: https://www.packfansnation.com/
Even some old-timers who dropped this site a while back have shown up.

Maybe the head fag can give out lectures on hate speech and liability.

I know, I have been there. I was just hoping that this site might not actually be dead. It was my favorite State site for years.
It’s all the same people minus the blog posts and politics.
Think of it as just a different URL and forum skin.09/08/2018 at 5:27 PM #133959
Too many went against the grain here, the glorified group text moved to another site so not to be intruded on…wait, it’s a public site too….DAMNIT!!!!!!!!!!!!09/08/2018 at 7:09 PM #133960
Same people, different results. Ummmkay. Wait till the younger target demographic gets hit with “I’m going to rip your head off and ——- down your throat”. A real classic. I’d rather talk to myself than read that garbage. The bathroom thread was stellar as well. Sure is busy for a dead site. If you want to know what killed SFN, roll the body over and pick out your own bullet hole or stab wound.09/09/2018 at 8:14 AM #133961

I couldn’t agree more. I’ve been coming to SFN since Sendek left town. So, I witnessed the search and all the plane tracking that ensued.
I haven’t posted in a lonnng time though and it’s largely been because I’m not in the secret society with all the old codgers on here that speak in some type of ancient code. They all “know” each other, and that’s cool, but they make us guys on the fringes feel unwelcome.
People apparently don’t like political undertones but I think, together, we can Make SFN Great Again.09/09/2018 at 9:40 AM #133963
Appreciate the feedback, fellas, even if I have to get it over here. I’m actually part of what’s been described over there as the “under-40-‘me generation’-know-nothing-IT/Engineers” group so I get it. In fact, I actually think that comment may have been aimed directly at me and not literally everyone under 40 (at least I hope so) because there is a tiny faction who are upset I’ve began moderating politics out of the forum.
There’s also been one disgruntled user (see above) who is furious that we moderate posts to remove epithets at PFN. *shrugs*
I’m learning as I go over there, but I’m going to continue doing what I believe is right for the greater good of the new site, and a few folks toes are inevitably going to get stepped on in the process.
JimValvano, sorry you felt unwelcome.. I’ve been going out of my way at the new site to try and welcome everyone that joins. New and young blood posters are definitely wanted and welcome!
If you do happen to stop by just leave your politics at the door.09/09/2018 at 1:07 PM #133964
The more you try to control it, the more people will hit the road. It is damn funny, akin to how State College is so tone deaf in dealing with the fan base.
So some epithets are to be banned, others not do much…..my oh my how you’ve already created that which you dislike. So I knifed skinny jean wearing homos and you took a stand, shrug.
I’m not furious. This is a silly message board after all and I’ve a number of things to do from clipping my toe nails to scribbling on bathroom walls across the southeast.
Good luck with the lifeless banter of statistics, what ifs and bad parking.
McCallum09/09/2018 at 2:11 PM #133965
People who are offended (how ironic) that we don’t allow racial and homophobic epithets I would encourage to hit the road.09/09/2018 at 3:12 PM #133966
If you do happen to stop by just leave your politics at the door.
Like the 2nd Who farewell tour but I couldn’t stopping laughing!!!
Well said pot and hey….you can’t offend me. You can fail to be humorous and you’ve done that.
McCallum09/09/2018 at 3:40 PM #133967
This thread is a perfect example of how lack of moderation leads small fraction of the user base to derail threads into a steaming pile of sh!t.
I’ve said my piece.. I’ll yield back to the disgruntled fellow and let him have the last word and any final personal attack(s)!
You all have a great Sunday.

This thread is an example of why the site is dead. It’s dead because we have:
– A blog based side with no blog content
– Outdated forums that aren’t actively moderated.
– The site has gone down a couple of times and taken quite a bit of time to come back up. It’s not really “owned” now.
At PFN, there blogs, but at least have an active forum and a supported site. That’s a good thing.09/14/2018 at 7:26 PM #133971
I’ve been through WolfChat where we bi**hed about Mike O’Cain and Les Robinson on a daily basis to Rancho De Nada (aka AccBoards.com) where politics was discussed so much, they had to create a separate board for that subject.
One thing about that board though was that it wasn’t moderated for very much except for flaming and profanity, otherwise, people said what they wanted.09/17/2018 at 12:00 PM #133972
If it’s a safe space, no thanks.09/17/2018 at 10:31 PM #133973
I have been reading this site for years, and have posted a few times, only to be ignored by
the ‘in-crowd’. So, I just continued reading only.
If there are others that are in the same boat, maybe we could generate enough
posts and interest to keep it going for a while.
Anybody have time to start a thread about the next game?
Also, a few weeks ago, I noticed a thread on the UNx site asking for new pictures of Kenan.
Somebody posted a pic taken during the Wilmington massacre of 1898, in which the namesake of
Kenan stadium was included. It is suspected that his group murdered a bunch of black citizens. The post was
only up for a short time before they deleted it. It was very amusing to read the responses
while it was still there. I think it is just a bit hypocritical of them to remove Silent Sam but ignore
who Kenan Stadium is named for.09/18/2018 at 11:16 AM #133974
At one point this site had the best information of anywhere. It is perplexing and I don’t know why everyone left other than yeah, it eventually had that group text feel.
As far as political banter goes, it’s no secret that the alumni fan base probably leans right or at the very least libertarian. I’ve noticed most of these sites have content produced by or are run by the wannabe journalist/writer types and even in the sports world you guessed it, they are left of center. There is naturally going to be conflict there.
In this era we don’t appear to even understand the other side and unfortunately decency has gone out the window from the tippy top down. It’s a blood sport because money and power are at stake. When I think about it it’s kind of astonishing that the façade of decency was held on to for as long as it was in this country. Well, it appears to have dissolved now.
