Background info on BucZone for our new visitors/members

Postby Caradoc » Mon Sep 12, 2016 7:35 pm

With apologies to Caradoc for hijacking his post:

First off, welcome.

Just want to give any new members/visitors a little background on BucZone. This forum came about as a result of the shutting down of the Official board over at Buccaneers.com years ago (coming this fall!). At that time the shutdown of the board was an abrupt deal so a couple users decided to create a message board to flock to (not this current site). There came a time over at that other board where the owner decided to sell the domain to a money-grabbing douchebag....we call him Larry.

So once again we were forced to hit the road and find a new home...which brings me to BucZone.com. BZ was created by a group of fans/posters from WAY back who have deep roots on all the various Bucs forums. The site is funded 100% by that group of posters and they have assured every Buc fan who visits or becomes a member here that the site is totally free and will remain so.

The group who runs this site doesn't view their role as running the site as much as they maintain it. There is very little moderation here as the philosophy is to allow the community to moderate itself (within reason of course). The community of Bucs fans was at the forefront of the creation of this site and remains the focus of the site moving forward. Welcome aboard and we look forward to the contributions you will make to this community. Go Bucs!

-Admin

Just saw today that several people at least are leaving PR for here. As a refugee myself from a couple years ago, welcome over! Site here can always use more members :drinkingcheers:

Hey fellas, thanks for the welcome!

Was a daily poster there for almost 10 years - sad to go as I really enjoyed the community there but I've heard great things here, so looking forward to getting back to talking bucs (and maybe infesting your off topic forums DUN Dun dunnnn lol).

What happened? Turn your adblocker off or view on mobile for maximum experience:

Anyways how bout them freaking Bucs though!? Just moved to Wisconsin 3 months ago (born and raised in Tampa, followed by 10 yrs at FSU) - and even all the Packer fans around me at the bar were pretty impressed with Winston and this new look offense

Edit: nice avatar corsair, listened to "heaven knows I'm miserable now" on the way home from work today lol :drinkingcheers:

Very glad to see more posters popping up here. Was hoping more would come over and have remained pleased at the level of conversation here since I signed up.

Sad to say it's nice just to have a normal functioning web forum to converse on.

Eh, as the former UTBBB community, we know all too well how being turned into ad revenue, and general mismanagement, can destroy a board.

Welcome to all the new guys though.

I can't believe how many people fell for that on the old board.

Welcome over folks. Not sure what caused the jump but welcome regardless.
