The forum which was affiliated with the Bucs official site was eliminated a number of years ago with the promise of a new and improved forum to appear "next fall". We are still awaiting it.

The original Official Buccaneers message board was deleted one day with the promise that a new version was "coming next fall". I believe the CNF message is still up if you go to the official site.

Ahhhh, ok I see. I never hung out at the "official" forums. I have no idea what PR has going on. All I know is that if they are SMART they want a thriving, engaged forum community. Otherwise their traffic will die, no matter how good their articles may or may not be. People can read articles all day, but the interaction with other users -- the debate and discussion -- is what drives engagement.

I was very disappointed with Mark Cook's response to the backlash and his decision to delete links to other sites (so-called "competitors"). It was childish and immature. It was "I'm going to take my ball and go home" tactics at work. I thought PR was bigger than that, but I was wrong, which is a shame.

Well, hopefully you'll all stick around. Yeah, PR may have higher traffic, but it has all the bullshit that goes with that. PR might scale back on the ads some, but it won't eliminate them.

I liked BucZone the minute I saw it. As a former Mod, I LIKED the idea of letting the forum run itself. Not bogged down by rules, not choked with advertising, just quality people. Stick around. Make us better.

I'm sure it is. She's mad to see this board getting more traffic so popped onto PR to try to stop people from coming here.

Yet she still can't help herself from lurking here and quoting posts on other boards.

Oh, Karen, still obsessing about Corsair (her avy) and me (her sig.) For the last time, we are both taken.

Haven't been on that board since Cook banned me for comparing him to Putin ... But I just saw where he told corsair that he never banned anybody for criticising PR. Lol what a putz .

I'm sure some will or already have. I saw that Scott made a lengthy post promising a refocus on the forum community there. Detailing several things they are planning on doing to reconnect with the forum they had neglected and chose to move away from. So I'd blame PR for maybe giving a **** about a forum membership on their site again and interacting with them. The complete archive of posts they always had appears gone forever and the modest, rushed, improvements they've scrambled to make still fall short functionally. Speaking only for myself, I have no intention of returning. Hoping this site provides a more stable environment for the long term.

Is that what got you banned?

I've always wanted the forum I participate to be very generous in their moderation. I have said many things there that I assume would be moderated elsewhere. Have been blisteringly critical of team/coaches/players without any moderation. Have been critical of PR/MC/SR as well. The first post of mine I know of being deleted there was this week. I've never received suspension, so I certainly don't consider them draconian moderators.

I do remember you trolling Jameis Winston pretty hard. Both as a prospect on the field and his character as a person in that back and forth debate over who to take 1. So, I'm hoping you've done a 180 on Jaboo. I figured that's why you had disappeared from around PR. Do you remember why you called MC "Putin" though? The only posts they said they were pulling were the ones calling Jameis a rapist.

Yeah I have said it appears as I was wrong about JW , dude got into shape and is maturing everyday , he always had the smarts it was all the other stuff . I was wrong .
What happened at PR was they made a post saying any sexual innuendos will not be tolerated and a few other things and that just seems like no fun to me . Too many rules and I guess Cook gets emotional about his little website ... I was banned for "continued bashing of the board " which wasn't the case .. I just like to make fun of stuff . Was banned from jbf cause I was a freeman fan and I jokingly asked one of the posters if he just got back from a clan rally ... No sense of humor of I guess .
