    Since that time this board has made tremendous strides.  And all the credit goes to you, the members. We have consistently stated that it is not the quantity but the quality and I am proud that we have stuck to that model.  

    I have had recent conversations with a group of like minded Jets fans who are in a similar predicament. Their board is small and the membership is solid. They are like us.  Respectable fans with no trolling tolerated.  

    I am in discussions with them about merging our membership.  Please don't fear change.  Let me assure you that you will not be flung into an insane illogical crowd.  I have done the due diligence.  This is a great board we would be moving to.  

    Why us move there and not them move here? Simply stated their board is better and you will agree when you see it.

    In theory this is the way it would work, everyone would have an account waiting for them on the new board with a generic password that you can change to suit you.  After a short-while there would be a redirect that would send visitors from this board to the new board.  

    I know we have been through a lot with the move but this new board looks like it could be our permanent home.  If you would like to check it out in advance please feel free: http://nyjetsfanatics.com/content.php

    There is a forum page but also a news page with contributing articles.

    This thread will be reserved for questions and concerns. Do not be afraid, this will be a measured move.  

    very best,

    Jack (MachinaVerde)

    I will check out the board now. I will say upfront I have faith in your judgement after seeing the job you did here.

    I 2nd that. Great job Machina.

    Nostradamus says:
    Having been down this road many times too often, this is your future.
    Everyone will move to the new PAID software board, and things will seemingly go smoothly for a while.
    Then one day you will receive a PM that says the cost of the software and server space has gone up and if it's possible, could you make a small - very small, 1-time donation, of $5 or $10 to cover the shortfall that is occurring because the site administrator lost his job, house burned down without insurance, economy tanked taking his 401k with it.......

    It will be SOMETHING, trust me.
    It will also NOT be a "1-time" thingy.
    In a few months, another PM will arrive, asking for another small donation to cover some unforeseen expense, and so it will go, until the monthly donation drive chart pops up on the front page as a way to prompt your guilt bag into dumping yet one MORE "small donation" into their checkbooks.

    If I posted a list of web sites I've belonged to that followed that road, it might well be my most epic tome ever.
    Paid software = donation requests, inevitably & PERMANENTLY.

    So predicts Nostradamus.

    Hyatt........... if? maybe? You could be right but we are a tight knit group and if that happens we will find a soft landing spot even if I have to make it. Right now most of us have moved so please join us and lets see what happens.

    i agree nick.

    HYATT, it seems like a good group that is interested in talking intelligently about the jets without the silliness that was on the JI/Scout board.

    worst case, if they start asking for money, we can come back here

    Exactly. We don't have to give up this board, even if we go over there. This is our permanent backup, at worst.

    agreed the whole reason for the move is to stir in more members and have a larger group of guys.  These are JI rebels, they rejected that model just like we did which is why they started this new board.  So sure, there are never guarantees (unless you are Joe Willy) but this is a good move.

    So just to be clear, we're keeping this board? Which by the way, I really like. I think you did a great job MachinaVerde.

    i think this board is being kept only as a backup. come on over to the new board. many of the posters here (and previously scout) have moved over. it looks like a great new home, combining many of our/scout regulars with JI refugees who want nothing to do with how that place used to be run.

    thanks man. The new board is my baby too. I want you to think of it as our home. Sure this board will be around but it will be a ghost town because all of us will be on the new one. The new board is OUR board. We have ownership and it's going to be everything we hoped for

    I have crazy busy lately haven't been able to post as much as I would like to... So I am just getting up to speed on this turn of events..... MV great job here, I went over to our old board and it is going downhill fast. No respect for other posters and the heated discussions are just complete garbage, cussing, street talk... So glad this place was created by you, so THANK YOU... With that said I will go register at the new board now but love knowing this place is here for us.

    MV, the other board is a very good community and I am enjoying reading over there. Thanks for the hard work in both setting up here AND giving us the ability to join with the others.

    2 quick comments on the new site.

    1.) Can't seem to get in and can't seem to register HYATT™ or get a new password at any known email either, as it appears to already be in use.
    Go figger, who'd want to be HYATT™.

    2.) Username sidebars are a fukkin real estate MESS!
    They eat up over 60% of the page real estate with nothing but blank space, given that few people are as verbose or prolific as HYATT™ and can actually fill up that much white space with enough cogent thoughts strung together into a single post to make it necessary.
    Forum posters just aren't in the habit of posting more than a couple sentences at a time, 95% of the time, even if they quote someone first.

    Stop being worried about posters petty personal ego issues about post count or other user data metrics - nobody but them shivs a git how many 1 sentence posts they've made on a site.
    It'd prolly be more useful to know now many words they've posted, than 1 sentence LOL or +1 posts.
