Tell us stupid n00bs your BB history, and what in the blue hell happened to ''the old star board''. I hear this all the time, and I'm interested in hearing the dirt.



Disclaimer: I know it's probably a repost, but I'm hungover and I don't give a shit. heh.

I'm pretty sure it had something to do with Denise, and I think that board is still going, from what I've seen here.

The star board took a stance against talking politics and off topic posts were deleted or moved. Filled with righteous indignation, some members formed this board where we could discuss anything we wanted to. Fast forward a few years and this board took a stance against talking politics, and off topic posts are moved into secondary forums.*






* Off topic being NFL draft, selling/buying tickets to Chiefs games, discussing music or technology, politics, gambling... etc. although some football topics are still allowed in the main forum.

you forgot about www.pigskinpark.com that started with the secondary forums but it was rather weak and folded under pressure from the planet's talk about anything in one forum style....

I do believe that some of the sub-forums here are necessary.

I don't believe that draft talk should be one of those sub-forums.

Agreed. I like the pics and D.C. subforums. I think the Tickets one is pretty good too. Most the rest can go as far as I'm concerned.

Bill P, in a nutshell the old Star board was a text only BBS that sucked. The admin there enforced the rules randomly. People were banned for ridiculous reasons and popular threads were deleted for no reason at all. It was very tiresome. Most people leapt at the opportunity to find something better. That board was shut down months after the Planet was formed and it came back with a slightly better (though still crap) version about a year after that.

Hope this helps.

I remember getting banned there right when their mod went a little crazy and started banning everyone for all kinds of insignificant things. I remember getting booted for making a joke about a farmer and his cock(chicken). IIRC, about 5 people got booted on the same thread in one day.

OK kiddies gather round for the lore of ChiefsPlanet is soon to abound.

Once upon a time in the mid 90s many, many of us like the Senator, Logical, Titus and even ole mean DEnise all posted together in an incarnation of the Star BB that was formatted much like todays Planet. We were a hardy group who harbored much anger and venom and we would fight the nights through. As time wore on our numbers grew and a bond did seemingly develop.

Then lo one night the evil witch Becky suddenly set to banning people for political speech in her forum. Many a poster thought it was at the bequest of the Evil DEnise but she doth deny it but defend Becky mightily did she. Soon the regulars were being banned right and left and lo came a savior nigh onto us with an initial parry to Russ (KCWolfman) and a few other. Lo the Planet was born and things were good and a mass exodus did ensue in 2000 August the year AD.

Now the story is told that the wicked DEnise claimed she would never post here, though I have never been able to document its truth, this is a widely held rumor of truth. For many months DEnise only made a token appearance and went back to the Star to lay claim to her now lonely throne, where only the n00Bs and trolls did now roam. All went well until behold technical problems with server volume did raise an ugly head.

Thence Pigskin Park/Pen was doth conceived and rivaled this board for usage and steam. Now the Star BB did shut itself down and an influx of poster at both the Planet and Park did begin and grow and grow did each board rise.

Now it is told that the Park had and Planet had many dual members but for its technical problems was the Planet Noted.

Meanwhile at the Park their arose a clamor by Gaz and DEnise of separation of political matter. As both were mods the owner did listen and split said board into two forums (sound familiar). Well lo and behold traffic in the sports forum began to dwindle while posting was soaring at the Pen we did quibble.

Well DEnise, and Jamie and Thomas and Logical too fought to the degree it killed the Pen too. Away, away, away went all back to the Planet with a better server to boot.

Together we did post in vastness and health while the BB did grow exponentially as well. Then one foggy fall day to what to our wonder cries did appear but that mean ole gal DEnise did appear. Came struggles and bitterness but a community was still built and it seemed nothing could ever be better than the Planet. Then came the evil, evil elections and what even the mean DEnise could not accomplish those elections did and the fabric of the Planet was ripped like a quilt.

A cry came anew from you will never guess who, sayeth Gaz we need to have a separate forum. Now much crying and screaming did ensue, we will ruin the Planet like was done to the Park.

Many votes were held and still no change when suddenly there came a poll with a story like thunder. Big Daddy switched sides and said yeah we need the separation and finally it happened the separation passeth.

Time wore on and survived we did, yet this was not enough to quiet the masses. Take that DC from sight they said and gone wad the DC link forthwith.

Now you have arrived at the time of today and we look forward each day to a new server. Because through it all we have endure the technical problems because in the end we have been a community and that has held us together.


I know this was not great literature but I have told this story so many times I had to do it different just to amuse myself.

Those of us refugees from when the Rival's boards shut down are forever indebted to those who blazed the trail to this site first. There are only a few of us that I know of but I know I have fully appreciated my new home on the net these last 6 years.

A long long time ago on a message board

their was base and charter members of ChiefsPlanet that included Rainman,KCTitus,KCWolfMan,Bob Dole,KlosterPhobia, Logical, htismaqe, Gaz ect..

Their was constant activity friendly jabs, and was as active as ChiefsPlanet back in the day. People threw friendly barbs at one another. Though their were dark days on the KCStar BB. These individuals were opposing teams spammers that would ravage it too it's very core, and of course the lazyass Star moderators let this activity run for days before taking any real action. As the evil known as the spammers regressed that BB came another rigid truth if one member of that BB wrote anything that fit their guidelines as "non-football" related was deleted on the spot.

Posters like KCTitus spoke anything that concerned politics on their Football BB was deleted without any explanation this inspired rage, and insurrection amongst fellow poster's like any movement their was an ideal that we all craved free speach no matter the topic which was the base creation of Chiefs Planet. When one finally had the oppurtunity to create a eutopia for the posters of KCStar BB they were happier than pig in it's own bawlmovement. Spamers were struckdown with a mighty hand, and we were free to discuss anything on one BB with no subforums .


During the days grey and yellow we had great times laughs, you know shits and giggles. Every poster had their place in the community posting 30-50 posts a day about quality topics with geniune, witty, and uniqueness that defined each of us back in the day. Many emulated Gaz since the KCStar board, and when I joined in '98 the gaz option was already in place, and forever will be for the ones who remember Gaz.

The Girly Thread was created by Big Daddy in 2002, and the reason why original handle was banned. During the 6-10 season , and the sudden arrival of the Rams to STL fairweather posters jumped ship to become Rams fans. This is also where some of the calous nature of the BB comes from too if you are too much of a homer, or a fairweather fan you will get bashed, and hazed. Only the strong can survive ChiefsPlanet,and is shown with every poster here in which you can discern from the weak and strongwilled on the BB.

While this jubilation was occuring their was a dark force going to rear it's head in the form of NEPA, and it's lunatic creator JD Prez. The information their was so maligned due to the NEPA creator's maniacal stalking of Phobia, and going to the point of making threats on Phobials answering machine at his house. This inturn generated a spoof site of NEPA called NEPACheese. I forgot who created it, but I owned Prez in the smack department their, and called the forum provider brave.net to take it down, because JD Prez was being a little bitch.

Which brings things to the 2003 area in which a suddle decline, and friction between AustinChief, and Phobia began to develop which leads us where we are today. I left the creation of 37forever, because I forgot who originally brought forth the idea.

If you want more info contact a KCStar '95 alum, or ask me specific questions that you are mulling over
