There doesn't seem to be a lot of posting in the evenings and at night. I was curious as to whether people were just lurking or not on the board at all.

I have been around a little, trying to do some other things as well. Our night staff does seem to be lacking.

I use a free ISP . . . its a crap shoot whether or not I even get on within an hour of the 1st attempt at night.

I wish we could have a scheduled live chat every week night . . . that would be interesting.

at that rivals site or whatever

I generally check at least once per night. Our night crew hasn't been keeping up it's end of the bargain, though.... Sometimes it's so boring here, I'm forced to get my Chiefs fix at the other place I used to call home.....

I've thought this board has been kinda slow since the beginning but I can never get any suggestions on how to get this board marketed. Who knows, if it's slow during Raida week it's never gonna be busy.

I have an advantage on you Central Time Zone guys. I'm on Pacific (Las Vegas) time. Usually swing by here after the little guy falls asleep. I'm a "newbie"...it has been real quiet over here the last couple of nights. We'll make some noise after we annihilate the Raiders this Sunday.

I'm back. The BNC was on her Braves BB (yuck).

It has been slow lately, but I don't think we should read too much into it. There is life beyond the computer, after all. Plus, we've been speculating about the Raider game since the minute the Seattle game ended. Eventually you kind of run out of meaningful opinions/smack/gripes about whatever.

I think we're doing just fine. I'm bored of waiting for Sunday and wish it would hurry up and get here.

Welcome 5decade. I hope you continue to post and spread the word about the planet. It has an intelligent fan base but it's still rather small. Perhaps our moderators do to good of job keeping the "riff-raff" out!

Pam, I've tried to post adverts at the Star board but it always gets pulled down!

Man, we've got to beat the Raida's this week! I wish we could find the team that put 54 pts up on the Rams. We've got to start fast and finish for once. NO LET UP!!

Who is the BNC?

5 things I don't want to see this weekend:
1. Gannon "dink and dunking" us to death.
2. Wheatley running free through are front seven.
3. The soft zone.
4. Rison converting 3rd downs.
5. A Chief fan getting stabbed in the gut.

Considering that it was the day crew that skipped BB's, I was afraid that we would be slow at night. I end up just going over to arguing BB, which I think I'm going to find something else to do instead. What a waste.

I think a lot of our night crew lurks waiting for someone to do something, and we all end up waiting.

Really fellas, I wouldn't worry too much about this board being a bit slow. After all, it IS relatively new. It hasn't had nearly as much time to build up a base of regulars like the other board has. Remember, that one's been around for a LOOOONG time.

We get more and more people as time goes by. I'd say about 2 years and this one will be just as busy, if not busier, than the other one.

Wanna see a REALLY slow board? www.chiefstalk.com (http://www.chiefstalk.com) was my first one, a few years ago when I started going to the boards. Boy, you get fewer than 10 posts PER DAY on that one. See? This one isn't so bad.

elvislivesinkc
11-02-2000, 11:39 PM
Well, its seems like the board's finally come back to life.

The only thing I'm shocked by is the fact that there's a new political thread up and Russ hasn't posted on it yet! http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Azchief and Kphobia, thanks for the "welcomes". I guess I saw posts on a different BB talking about "the planet" a couple of months ago...I honestly can't recall where I first saw the web address, but at the time I made a mental note of it--it's easy enough to remember. Lately, I've been getting more and more annoyed at the Raider's #1 fan east of the Rockies, Denise. She's completely out of the closet. So, I came over here, and I'm looking for REGULAR status. If trolls can acheive it, I know you'd "rubber stamp" me right away if you knew my love of the Chiefs.

5d, I'll give you "regular" status in 23 more posts. http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/smile.gif Once, you get to 30 you're official. Trust me, you'll miss the lurker tag when it's gone. Mine should say..."needs a life!"

Jack
11-03-2000, 12:24 AM
OK...fair enough, I'll reach 30 before too long. Another reason to give thanks for later this month (good health, nice family, KC in 1st place, etc.).

I feel certain that if we start out well on Sunday that we really can punish Oakland. If we don't start well, it's nice to finally have some firepower on offense. We need our Special Teams to get a "wash". Our offense SHOULD be good for 30 pts or more on their so-so defense, and our defense has the talent to hold the Raiders to FGs, with a MAX of 2 TD's. If we don't get burned repeatedly (more than 3X) by Gannon's scrambling, his day will be long and painful.

ColoradoChief

There are plenty of things for me to do, procratinate going to the grocery store (I hate that place), cleaning the apartment, killing all the damn spiders, sucking up radiation from my computer screen, talking to the cat, training the cat to stand and to walk over to me when called. See I do lead an exciting life!

I've been spending a lot more time at work lately, and usually only have time to hit and run on this board in the evening.
Pam, on that poll regarding the biggest rivalry, I meant to type 396 but typed 399 by mistake and didn't catch it. That's why there was a discrepency.
Time to check my post count.

JOhn - Interesting, but no. If my cat could open the fridge I would have some serious problems. I guess when he is full grown that might be more of a worry, he already is trying to figure out some of the other doors. He is 6 months old and already 9 lbs, and not fat. This cat is going to be bloody HUGE.

My wifes cat can open most doors. Started out with the french doors we had going out to the back porch (had those lever type handles).

no can get the front door open, by leaning over from the table and push the knob, which causes it to rotate. Had to by a chain, got tired of waking up in the middle of the night to find the door open. http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/confused.gif
