So, has it? If so, how? Please be specific. Has the "tone" changed? Have certain posters changed? Other?

I ask for a very specific reason, so please be honest.

Thanks.

Oh, and not a slam on noobs, but I would appreciate it if you didn't comment unless you've been a member for at least one year.

The posters were funnier and more caustic, sarcastic. This place used to be a blast, but it has become very blase almost boring a great deal of the time.

The other thing is we all knew each other better and it was a closer knit group.

It has changed for the better IMO.

I used to hate the off-season because the board was always flooded with odds & ins topics.

I'm one of those sick individuals who can basically start talking draft as soon as the season is over.

So that Draft Planet is perfect for me. A nice addition.

As far as how people have changed? I don't know. I probably don't post enough to be able to answer that question.

Phil was here then sort of left and then came back again.

Going into the political section makes me feel like I rolled around in a prositutes feces like it always has.

Endelt used to do fat chicks and apparently has been eaten by one or arrested on charges of elder male molestation.

And I haven't been around that long.

Used to be more of a community, while it did get confrontational at times, there was more discussion and less bickering. I think it started to change around 2003-2004. That may, however, just be my perception, because that coincides with my divorce, and I've spent a great deal less time here since. It may have seemed more close-knit to me simply because I was here more.

There was less people to keep up with.

Phil kept this place in order.
Offseasons are the same every year.

Washington D.C. created or the main forum would be full of only political threads.

That's understandable.Somewhere around late 2003 to early 2004. It interestingly enough is lost in the great database purge. But it was the the time of the great nightcrew threads. Gaz ruled the day. Day posting was for civility for the most part, night posting was for unbridled insanity.

I would agree with this....It seemed to be an older more mature, closer nit crowd. Somewhere around 2005 it seemed to have a big influx of younger fans that don't even remember era's as recent as the Barry Word's of the Chiefs world. In the first couple years I had about 14-15k posts, in the last couple years I probably haven't posted another 500. There use to be more football discussed and seemed like a lot more passion about Chiefs football. I don't know if the demographics of the board caused that to change or the continued struggles of Carl Peterson and the lack of success has caused it...but it has changed and not for the better from my perspective.

There was definitely more football discussion, and I would characterize it as both more interesting and more...knowledgeable, for lack of a better word.

I've said this before, however: I think part of it is burnout. A lot of us have been online for a decade now (or longer). It might just be a cyclical thing.

DaWolf
04-30-2007, 09:14 PM
I dunno, quite honestly when I joined, what, 7 years ago many of us were making the jump from the Star board to here so there was a common bond and we built our own community here, and there was a closer sense because a lot of us knew a lot more about each other, going back to the Star board and even for me as far back as the Chiefs newsgroup discussions with Kent Pulliam, then the Chiefs writer.

Back then of course I was super active on the board and was posting stuff all the time, right there in the top 6 or so in posts. Then of course as with everything, the community starts growing, and you start growing with it, other things in life start taking priority, my time here becomes much more limited as I have to take care of other things since I graduated way back, and yeah, the people here have changed, a lot of familiar faces have kind of slowed down in showing up, new people come in, and it feels different.

But hey, in reality the more things change the more things stay the same. It was eerie seeing the parallels between the Huard/Green battles last year and the Grbac/Gannon war of 1997-98. While the latter was definitely more intense, it's nice to know that we as a fan base have not lost our passion one bit (although I think there is an overwhelming sense these days of being resigned to King Carl's rule whereas there was a lot more overall passion about getting rid of him back when this board was young)...

I'm still here quite a bit, and I agree with your assessment. It may just be because I haven't "bonded" with many of the newer folks, but we seem to have lost some of the shared sense of history and community. Back in the day, it seemed like half the posts were self-referential inside jokes and plays on our own history (like the lexicon). Now it seems like fewer and fewer of the people here really get it or care to indulge in that sort of stuff. That being said, I don't think it's necessarily a change for the worse. I just think the party has gotten much bigger, which makes it harder to keep the same feeling of closeness.
I don't like the Planet less, but it has changed.

It seems like the current posters are either turd-stirring youngsters or the same few old-timers. The Offseason thread's a good example, it was doing its job well till someone decided to be a jerk-off and it went down hill for a bit. It's also the offseason and that makes it seem worse.

Honestly I can't believe I have been here for almost 4 years. Time flies.
Anyway when I first came here there was alot more football talk and great discussion. The last year or so football talk is not as prevalent but that maybe due to the apathy that has set in.

Also I would add that I think it is frustrating for alot us during important times during the year when we can't log on or post because the database crashes or is extremely slow. If you can't post during those times then maybe some people would like to go else where.

I must say one of the more vocal and more active posters seems to have a problem discussing a topic without the person immediately turning it into a name calling and insult slinging fest. That is the kind of change I have noticed. Naming calling and insults have always been tossed around but in the past it usually only came about when a topic got extremely heated....this person seems to go to the insult card at the first sign of someone disagreeing with them.

I agree with Naptown and keginkc....

I post here less because of the lack of civility.....and quite frankly because many of the topics on the main board don't appeal to me anymore. That's OK, I don't necessarily think things should stay the same because they seem to wither and die when change isn't occasionally introduced.

But to be honest, it really has become a more confrontational place....less a place where good spirited discussions can take place. It's probably me, but there seems to be more of a "F.U., no F.U." type of debate.

I don't want to be labeled an old geezer, but I come back more for my "old friends" from the Star Board/Early Chiefs Planet group. It's fun to see a Frazod rant, and Iowanian thread, a great analysis of the upcoming draft by hawaiianboy (too bad he's gone), a defense diatribe by Gaz, or Phil's off-the-wall and deprecating sense of humor. I enjoy 4th and Long's artwork, Bwana's story's of life in Montana, Baby Lee's very well thought out rebuttals, Logical's battles with Denise, and KCTitus's "research and destroy" skills. I still enjoy Bob Dole's 3rd person sense of humor, htismaqe's even handed sense of fairplay as a Mod, (even with his recent "retirement"), Big Daddy's health tips, Joe SeaHawk, Ugly Duck and Mile High Mania's "look from the outside in" and morphius' constantly changing avatars.

I miss KC Wolfman, Clint and Red, Cannibal, Luzap, MrBlond, and a few others too numerous to mention.

I've been here since 2001 or 2002. I used to post on those famous nite crew threads, and they were a good time. I'd stay up til 2am in the summer just posting. We all liked it because it was essentially a chatroom.

We don't have the nite crew threads really so much anymore, but I don't mind. There's still the drama and controversies and community there seemed to be before.

When I started posting as Jenson71, I was about 15 years old, and naturally, everyone thought I was annoying and brushed me off for being young and talking about political or current events. I remember getting into a debate with Bwana about if Hitler was evil or insane.

dawson, or noswad, was basically memyselfi's little sister, and everyone jumped on her back. And then I think she got cancer, and may have died.

And back a few years ago, I was really interested in film, and Miles, who had another part to his name, like MilesDavis but not that, and FloridaChief would talk some good film with me.

I agree with Naptown and keginkc....

I post here less because of the lack of civility.....and quite frankly because many of the topics on the main board don't appeal to me anymore. That's OK, I don't necessarily think things should stay the same because they seem to wither and die when change isn't occasionally introduced.

But to be honest, it really has become a more confrontational place....less a place where good spirited discussions can take place. It's probably me, but there seems to be more of a "F.U., no F.U." type of debate.

I don't want to be labeled an old geezer, but I come back more for my "old friends" from the Star Board/Early Chiefs Planet group. It's fun to see a Frazod rant, and Iowanian thread, a great analysis of the upcoming draft by hawaiianboy (too bad he's gone), a defense diatribe by Gaz, or Phil's off-the-wall and deprecating sense of humor. I enjoy 4th and Long's artwork, Bwana's story's of life in Montana, Baby Lee's very well thought out rebuttals, Logical's battles with Denise, and KCTitus's "research and destroy" skills. I still enjoy Bob Dole's 3rd person sense of humor, htismaqe's even handed sense of fairplay as a Mod, (even with his recent "retirement"), Big Daddy's health tips, Joe SeaHawk, Ugly Duck and Mile High Mania's "look from the outside in" and morphius' constantly changing avatars.

I miss KC Wolfman, Clint and Red, Cannibal, Luzap, MrBlond, and a few others too numerous to mention.

I've only been on the board for 1.5 years, so I cannot say it has changed much. I can't reminisce to the old days of the closely knit community of the Star board or the chiefs radio discussion forum, or the HAMM radio discussion group nor the tickertape morse code telegraph community of pre AFL days.
BUT...this place has given me a fun, informative, 24-hour place to learn and talk about Chiefs, something I can do to practically nobody out here in Los Angeles.
So, for that, I'm thankful.
Plus, all the other Yahoos like me on here keep it interesting. You guys are my computer friends. My watercooler at my desk.

My wife cannot understand why I am on here all the time. I say, "This is my entertainment and news. It's like "Best Week Ever" or "The Soup"...people report current news, and other people say sh!t about it, some funny, some not so funny.

I feel for some of you veterans. Looks like you had a really cool thing going years back. I think what has happened is just change. Things change, its just the way of things. Folks get older, get more into family, or start a family...etc. etc.

I'm just glad there isn't a bunch of threads whining about the good old days. I am not talking about this one at all, there was a spat of them a few months back. I saw it on another board before...folks started bitching about the good ol days, and that was the beginning of the end of that board. At least being big. Well lame drama had a part too.

The veterans are out there lurking, that is for sure. That stuff drives them off, IMO.


For me, I had found ChiefsHuddle through using warpath. Someone linked a thread to this place, and wow. Wild and funny as hell. Very active forum too. Seems there is more drama and not as much fun as two years ago, but I still find it entertaining and there is a whole lot of real knowledgeable posters about the Chiefs. There is a number of people on here who's football opinion I would trust over any talking head.

mcan
05-01-2007, 03:21 AM
I joined the Star board a few months before this one was created and joined in here as soon as I found out about it.


When the board first started, it was pretty wild. The Star board was a censorship machine and everybody on here was anxious and willing to lay into people and say whatever they wanted. All things were discussed from football to politics to music to women. There were no subforums and each topic got a TON of participation. So, in turn, you would get to know everybody really quickly. You'ld spend HOURS on here at a time because there were always at least three or four threads that you were glued to. If you had to leave the computer, you'ld come back and check it every hour or so to see how it was going...

Basically, everybody participated in all discussions because the board topics weren't segregated. It annoyed people that threads like "The Chiefs are Racist" would get started by trolls and then stay on the main page for weeks. But, the board policed itself, and those discussions were fun for almost everybody involved, so the complainers were in the minority.


THEN: The heated Bush/Kerry election.


That was it. There were times where 90% or more of the main page was covered with the same old garbage over and over. At first, they threatened to ban the 6 or so people that were doing it. Warnings... Then, there were NO football threads to speak of. Just Bush/Kerry threads, and threads complaining about how there weren't any football threads. So, while everybody was good and pissed off, there was a vote: Create subforums...

The new forums definately solved that problem. But created a whole slew of new problems, not to mention a sea change in the overall attitude of the board. Suddenly it wasn't a place to go and talk about anything with a bunch of people. It became: talk about football with a bunch of people, or talk about something else with a small group of extremists who aren't any fun to talk to and sit around flaming each other.

Now, the board seems to only still be good for the occaisional laugh and as a repository for any and all Chiefs news and rumors. Which makes it still a pretty cool site, but certainly not a community like it once was.

I agree, this place changed significantly after D.C. was created. Anything you wanted to talk about was right here on the front page. When you signed on it was like going to your neighborhood bar. Any number of people talking about everything under the sun.
Unfortunately, when it came to politics too many people couldn't just agree to disagree. The end result being segregation. It hasn't been the same since.

That's a pretty good way to put it. I've been around here way too long... since the KC Star daze. There's a lot of posters that no longer post and that sucks. There's a lot of posters that still don't understand the Internet.

However, overall the place has evolved into a solid community. I agree that the addition of the DC Forums changed things, but I don't think it's negative. There would be days when this place was an absolute ass whip with all the non-sports drama. Hell, had the forums not been split... I likely would have bailed a while ago... you guys missed your chance. :p

The big positive is that people have learned to not be so friggin sensitive to posts from others. It's still bad at times, but for the most part I have noticed that people are more easy going.

What do people expect. The tone of discussions is expectantly male. Lot's of blustering and over the top rhetoric. And the nexus of early contributors were more homogeneous. To continue that approach requires to have an edge without cutting to deep. That is a high wire act and you are bound to get casualities when new and different actors show up over time. I would like more football entries but it is hard to discuss nuance if the course is full out blow. Just settle in, try and find the pace and build until that rhythm develops and holds. It still shows up at times.

My dumbassery was pointed out in short order, wow. I have actually learned some things about football, and look at the team totally different. I would have never said anything negative about anything to do with the team, prior to joining this place.

I might also add, I'm not nearly as tolerant to the general stupidity that runs rampant on here at times. I've slowed way the hell down on posting - primary out of lack of interest on topics. But also, I just don't have the same bond with certain posters that I had a number of years ago. Shit happens, but I still enjoy being here - more as a lurker vs. a poster these days.

The personality has changed, that is for sure.

In the era of free agency Chiefsplanet lost the football insight of Hawaiianboy for the drooling skunkweed mumblings of overhead and autumnwind....Traded the factual statistics and regular historical archive smack of the Titus Brothers for Mecca and Hootie.......a plethora of humorous posters who were actually clever no longer or very rarely post here any longer, and were replaced by an influx of the Icy Hot stuntaz.

There have been very solid additions in new posters that have kept this place alive, and thats a good thing.

The days of The H-back conversation, before it was talked about on NFLN, Skinsbras of lore and common villains are gone.

Maybe its just apathy from those that have been at this for so many years....and you can only talk about things so many times, or life and maturity take over.

I think alot of it is just specific personalities that are gone.

As for the lack of civility....I accept my portion of responsibility and really don't enjoy that aspect. Its not fun for anyone. That said, the planet used to be a RUTHLESS place.....Brock is a teddy bear compared to 5 years ago....Cannibal, otter and CiW among others were brutal.

Mcan always whines about the DC forum, but rarely participates here......the people who post there with 80% of their posts+ are doing the entire board a favor by not being in the main forum.

You can't talk about politics or religion in a bar either without trouble.

It is losing its burst. I'm not sure if its the board that has changed....or my perspective with 7 more years of age.

The posters were funnier and more caustic, sarcastic. This place used to be a blast, but it has become very blase almost boring a great deal of the time.

The other thing is we all knew each other better and it was a closer knit group.

Bingo ..... so many of us came over from the Star BB and we knew each other pretty well.

Seriously, as we get older,more things come in to our lives, we usually post less, new members join and you wake up one day and say, "Who are you ? " to a new member .

There are several members who for whatever reason quit posting (or drastically limited their time here) that I miss. The vacuum caused by their absence has been filled, but generally not a good way.

It used to be that the core group of this place were people who were friends not only here but in real life. That has certainly changed. Again, not a good shift. :shake:
It's just different. Different people, different friends. I had never met roughly 75% of the Planet people who showed up to my BBQ last month. I enjoyed that but it's certainly different.

I don't think it's different, bad. It's just not the same. Nothing ever is. I don't have a problem with that. The NFL isn't the same as it was 7 years ago either and I whine about it a lot but I keep watching every game.

The Chiefs are also responsible for the change around here. DV brought us one of the most dynamic offenses ever, Trent was putting up elite numbers, Holmes broke the TD record, our OL was HOF worthy (remember that Falcons game). But nothing lasting was accomplished. Like the Marty years. Or the Gun years. Herm isn't the kind of HC that breeds excitement, look at the anti-Herm campaign. We might be on the cusp of a new era of KC greatness but, based on the past, we're probably just going to get 4 years of almost good enough. That's rough on even the most die hard fan. There's only so many ways we can have the "Herm sucks. No he doesn't." discussion.

If you guys don't mind me throwing in my opininon, you can throw it out, heh.

Regardless of how many people like me or not, in my opinion the new n00bs have become more annoying than I ever was. There are about 5-10 mults posting here daily, the gochiefs 10 threads a day, then the blatant unethical journalistic threads he posts to garner attention himself; I had though for most of my time here he was contributing alot but now it seems ot be about himself, just to display his "news items", so I don't like that - I detest grandstanding.

The hypocrisy of one mod in particular, and the people who basically follow his line of thinking; on one hand they bash away on traditions that many here hold dear, posting blatantly offensive comments then hide behind freedom of speech then when someone fights back they cry racist, misongynist, etc.

I have seen more censorship specifically because of him, against a specific group of people, in favor of another.

The garbage threads posted by folks like percysnow, and crazy coffey when he first joined up, autumn wind here, it's not entertaining at all some days. Yesterday I think was the worst display of threads at any given time since that one day htismaqe allowed political postings on the loung a few months back for a day (I know he was trying to prove a point).

Hopefully the buffalo bills girl will come back and get railed on, I miss red-n-feisty and Clint In Wichita.

Og The Caveman hasn't been around in a while, heh - I miss that guy.

People keep mentioning the fact that it's not a tight communtiy anymore, all I know is that everyone seemed to know each other and that some newer people here don't show up at parties and that might make it not such a tight knit group too. My own opinion is that if you have 3 hours to play flag football, and you live in the area, you should attend a bash, a tailgate or something. Too many folks here simply don't participate in the bonding that can go on at a party, etc.

Anyway, some thoughts there.

IMO, 2003 was the heyday of place. Things that have happened since that have contributed to the decline:

The slow but steady decline of the Chiefs themselves.

The absence/diminished presence of certain key interesting members, like Brian and Russ.

The end of 37 Forever.

The DC forum. Not the forum itself, which is necessary, but the fact that certain people MADE ITS CREATION necessary.

The Athan fiasco, including the rift between Kyle and Phil and the rift between pro and anti-Phil factions.

OVERCROWDING. Like a sprawling suburb that was once a nice quiet place, the BB has vastly outgrown its infrastructure. There are simply way too many people here now, and quantity does not equal quality. (How many "server busy" messages did you get during the draft?)

The metamorphasis of one certain poster from an amusing, cantankerous old fart into the egomaniacal self-proclaimed lord of the n00bs (this may be more of a personal thing for me, but I can't be the only one).

It just isn't fun like it used to be. And that's sad.

Whether that is good or bad is up to individual taste but there is no denying the place has changed.

GoChiefs and a few other newer posters remind me of that loudmouthed poker player in "Tombstone' played by Billy Bob Thornton whose obnoxious behavior drove away all of the regular clientele. That is until Wyatt Earp walked in, bitch slapped him, and threw him out by his ear. It was only a matter of time before the real-world losers found this place and glommed on, making their virtual lives here.

You might be surprised, but I completely agree. I don't like the subforums; that's true. But your post seems to imply that I'm one of those guys that only talks politics. I don't think you meant it to, but I'm certainly not one of those "DC Forum" people. I think I've posted on there once or twice since it's been created. I don't want to talk to the people over there any more than you do! I would, however, love to talk about politics with sane, rational, and fun loving people... But those people don't ever venture away from the main board.

Maybe I'm wrong about the reasons why this place isn't as cool as it used to be, but I'll give some specific examples of what I'm talking about.

In 2000 I started a thread about "How to beat the Rams" a week before the game. Nobody gave us a chance at that game, and it was my theory that we needed to "fight fire with fire..." I said, "If the Rams want to play video game football and run up the score, we're not going to beat them with three yards and clowd of dust football. We need to try and beat them at their game." The thread garnered a lot of attention and debate through the week. There were also a bunch of NFT threads on the board, but when a good football thread came around, it got a lot of good attention.

Two years ago I started a thread where I attempted to go back and breakdown the film of every play of a Chiefs/Jets game. It was a massive undertaking that I had a lot of fun doing: at first. But it was meant to stir up some actual football conversation. Instead, it just got a bunch of posts from people saying "I wonder if you'll actually finish this." A few people responded saying that they were reading, but after getting through every play of the first quarter, the only people replying to the thread were REDICULING it... "I wonder what's going to happen next?" "I'll bet THIS happens :rolleyes: " etc... It kinda pissed me off. All people do is bitch about the lack of good football threads, so much so that we segregate the board: but it became REALLY clear to me that most people here don't WANT to talk about football. They want to talk about getting drunk, and rip on people. So, I don't post very much anymore.

Phobia
05-01-2007, 12:31 PM
The Athan fiasco, including the rift between Kyle and Phil and the rift between pro and anti-Phil factions.


I guess I'm not aware of any Kyle/Phil rift. We're good. He calls when he's in KC and I think we've even hung out since the split. Yeah, I don't like the way he makes promises he can't keep and he knows that - I'm not shy about saying what I don't like about people especially when we're business partners. Clearly, we both had different ideas about the future of the Planet and it turns out he was a lot smarter than I am in hindsight.

I was also not aware of any significant pro/anti-Phil factions. It might be interesting hearing more about that. Or maybe not.

I definitely agree in some regards about the overcrowding comment from your post. Though, I think it's an underperformance issue more than an overcrowding. There are thriving communities on the web with tens of thousands of members which dwarf this site. There's no reason we can't have a large site that provides a lot of entertainment value.

JazzzLovr
05-01-2007, 12:35 PM
I have to agree with Logical (did I really say that?? ;) ), keg and Frazod on the points that they have already made. I think you may see a difference between "veteran" posters who describe the Planet a few years ago as a tightly-knit community and those who saw it as a larger community for football analysis. I think for the most part, the football analysis perspective comes from day posters and the tightly-knit community is the perspective of the old "Nite Crew." As Logical posted earlier, daytime was more serious, and nighttime was when a serious thread would get hijacked and become the place for the Nite Crew to talk about everything and nothing and just basically give each other hell. :D

There were fewer members online at that hour, so everyone who posted regularly after midnight got to know each other fairly well. I think during that time, I probably met about 90% of those people in person and considered at least 50% of them to be close friends of mine.

I think the best time I ever had at a CP event was when a group of us met at Gator's on the Friday night of 37 Forever weekend (I think that was 2003). Until that night, I think I had only met two of the people there in person before, but I had talked to so many of them online for so long, that I never felt like I was among strangers. And most of those people were part of the Nite Crew. Off the top of my head, I can remember Frazod, Rausch, Boozer, ENDelt, KCMizzou, raiderhader, Zach, KCWolfman, stevieray, and LVNHack that all showed up at some point that night. (To this day, I can't hear the song "Fat-Bottomed Girls" without thinking of ENDelt and stevieray singing it onstage together :D )

This past year, in the weeks leading up to the fundraiser, I remember talking with Frazod about all the people who were going to be missing. When you hear former Nite Crew folks reminiscing or wishing for the "good ol' days" as someone else called it, it's not so much complaining about what the Planet has become--although its collective personality has definitely changed--as it is missing some posters that we considered friends. To use the bar analogy, we're not complaining that the menu has changed or that the place has been redecorated, we're just trying to figure out why Norm only drops by every once in a while and Cliff hasn't been heard from in months.

That's my take on it, anyway.

I joined the Star board a few months before this one was created and joined in here as soon as I found out about it.


When the board first started, it was pretty wild. The Star board was a censorship machine and everybody on here was anxious and willing to lay into people and say whatever they wanted. All things were discussed from football to politics to music to women. There were no subforums and each topic got a TON of participation. So, in turn, you would get to know everybody really quickly. You'ld spend HOURS on here at a time because there were always at least three or four threads that you were glued to. If you had to leave the computer, you'ld come back and check it every hour or so to see how it was going...

Basically, everybody participated in all discussions because the board topics weren't segregated. It annoyed people that threads like "The Chiefs are Racist" would get started by trolls and then stay on the main page for weeks. But, the board policed itself, and those discussions were fun for almost everybody involved, so the complainers were in the minority.


THEN: The heated Bush/Kerry election.


That was it. There were times where 90% or more of the main page was covered with the same old garbage over and over. At first, they threatened to ban the 6 or so people that were doing it. Warnings... Then, there were NO football threads to speak of. Just Bush/Kerry threads, and threads complaining about how there weren't any football threads. So, while everybody was good and pissed off, there was a vote: Create subforums...

The new forums definately solved that problem. But created a whole slew of new problems, not to mention a sea change in the overall attitude of the board. Suddenly it wasn't a place to go and talk about anything with a bunch of people. It became: talk about football with a bunch of people, or talk about something else with a small group of extremists who aren't any fun to talk to and sit around flaming each other.

Now, the board seems to only still be good for the occaisional laugh and as a repository for any and all Chiefs news and rumors. Which makes it still a pretty cool site, but certainly not a community like it once was.

This is an interesting take. And I think I would agree with most of it. I would not be opposed to getting rid of the sub forums. All except the political one. I hardly ever go in there any more. I feel dirty when I come out of there. :shake:

I think the board being a more close knit group was part of its charm. Also, the orginal members where all former KCStar posters looking for a place to share their love of the Chiefs so there were a lot more serious football discussions.

I must say one of the more vocal and more active posters seems to have a problem discussing a topic without the person immediately turning it into a name calling and insult slinging fest. That is the kind of change I have noticed. Naming calling and insults have always been tossed around but in the past it usually only came about when a topic got extremely heated....this person seems to go to the insult card at the first sign of someone disagreeing with them.

Having been around here since the beginning, lurking more than posting, I'd say this board has changed and mostly for the better. I like the fact that there is more diversity now. The Planet was very midwestern and very conservative in the early days, NTTAWWT, and most of those folks are still around. But as new members have come along and the population has grown a greater variety of opinions, both football and otherwise, have come with them. Naturally, that sometimes leads to problems. It's no surprise that the more types of people you gather together the more likely there will be disagreements.

As to football threads, I don't there are any less today, just less as a % of posts. And I would attribute that more to the team than the members. Let's face it, the Chiefs haven't given us much to get excited about over the past few years, neither on nor off the field.

It's human nature for people to long for things past, to miss "the good old days" so to speak, but this is still a great board, just one that's evolved.

I think i first started lurking here in 04 & there is no question in my mind that it was a more rough & tumble place, some of the pile-ons i've witnessed probably inflicted atleast some type of physical pain, despite being in cyberspace.

I actually joined at the tail end of the good n00b hazing, its not nearly as intense as it was & thats not always for the better...

I can understand the old timers & more to the point locals, feelings of things not being as tight knit as before, but the simple fact is that not all CHIEF fans live in metro KC or nearby in Mo. Try to have a heart for your longer distance breathren...

There is still plenty of thoughtful football analysis here IMO, as well as any & everything related to pop-culture & world events...this place can be HIGHLY informative.

The Planet still has its burst.

At some point i hope to meet many of you folks, but until that day, you will be the Falcon & i will remain...The Falconer...

I must say one of the more vocal and more active posters seems to have a problem discussing a topic without the person immediately turning it into a name calling and insult slinging fest. That is the kind of change I have noticed. Naming calling and insults have always been tossed around but in the past it usually only came about when a topic got extremely heated....this person seems to go to the insult card at the first sign of someone disagreeing with them.

It's just different. Different people, different friends. I had never met roughly 75% of the Planet people who showed up to my BBQ last month. I enjoyed that but it's certainly different.

I don't think it's different, bad. It's just not the same. Nothing ever is. I don't have a problem with that. The NFL isn't the same as it was 7 years ago either and I whine about it a lot but I keep watching every game.

Interestingly, I actually drifted away from the Planet when I moved closer to KC. I was actually on the board more when I lived in NC/SC than when I moved to Columbia, MO.

Truthfully, I have always respected nap...and I'd be pretty disappointed if it were my posts he viewed that way.

I'd like to think the smack is just something I do....not "who I am" here and that its not used just because. If it is...I need to re-evaluate what I'm doing here.

well, maybe it's not the planet has changed, but the posters...

Maybe some have lost their burst.
Maybe some don't care about "community".
Maybe some don't care about meeting others, therefore remaining veiled in their identity.

I know that the nzoner thread didn't garner much of a response(even from the oldtimers), whereas it might have in the past.

Im pretty sure it's changed since The Man started to block my ways -- even ANALOG -- from getting to the planet.

It's not because of what the team has or hasnt done or more to the point what Carl has or hasnt done, but I will say that playoff performance proved to me we're reliving another Schottenheimer era. Regardless who is the coach or who is the GM, I'll still be a fan, it's just that my company has blocked every way to get to the board. I cant even use my own wireless device to access the site while at work.

Without my witty reparte to lighten your-alls day, Im sure it's been less exciting.

It's affected my keeping up with the team, and I miss some of you guys.

IMO, 2003 was the heyday of place. Things that have happened since that have contributed to the decline:

The slow but steady decline of the Chiefs themselves.

The absence/diminished presence of certain key interesting members, like Brian and Russ.

The end of 37 Forever.

The DC forum. Not the forum itself, which is necessary, but the fact that certain people MADE ITS CREATION necessary.

The Athan fiasco, including the rift between Kyle and Phil and the rift between pro and anti-Phil factions.

OVERCROWDING. Like a sprawling suburb that was once a nice quiet place, the BB has vastly outgrown its infrastructure. There are simply way too many people here now, and quantity does not equal quality. (How many "server busy" messages did you get during the draft?)

The metamorphasis of one certain poster from an amusing, cantankerous old fart into the egomaniacal self-proclaimed lord of the n00bs (this may be more of a personal thing for me, but I can't be the only one).

It just isn't fun like it used to be. And that's sad.

I already posted it and you goddamn well know it, you lying piece of dogshit. I know you saw it because you ran away like the f#cking PUSSYthat you are. I'll post it again so you can go run and hide again.

As for unprovoked attacks, DOPEY, expect one everytime you display the brazen gaul to dare to criticize ANYONE, EVER about anything they've done in their life. I'll tell you one thing about every you rip on here - they all have FUTURES, which is something you don't have. Hopefully they won't piss all over theirs with poor life choices like you did. You are King Dipshit of the Losers, Mr. Ass-Crack-In-Front-Of-My-Entertainment-Center, and have no right, ZERO, to ever rip on anybody. The average homeless bum on Lower Wacker didn't come from money and piss away a free ride through college. How many other people with psychology degrees install cable at age 62? Did your daddy the doctor cry when he realized his son was a drugged out f#cking failure and disgrace? God, what an embarassment you must have been.

So here's the picture of me and my wife, AGAIN, for the benefit of anyone who buys into your bullshit. And, once again, DOPEY, where's the picture of YOUR wife, or YOUR girlfriend? Or at last the last hooker or goat you nailed? No picture, or can you not hook up a scanner to Web TV, you jerkoff. Apparently we can add COMPUTER to the list of things you can't afford, along with the DirecTV you install for other people. Yeah, you're a real million dollar success story, aren't you?

Well, I suppose it depends on how one defines "weak male." Somehow, I think you and I differ on that definition.

I like to pick on women? How did you reach that conclusion?

I live in the Denver area, yes, since the middle 1990s. I was raised in KC. What's the point?

I like this board for multiple reasons. It has taught me a lot about football, for one.
