Title: New PC forums
Post by: marklawrence on January 15, 2018, 04:51:09 PM
Welcome to the new forums.

We've attempted to move all the posts, but things posted in the last couple of hours before the move may have gotten lost. Sorry.

We expect these forums to continue indefinitely.

The standard rules apply: PG-13, no politics, no talk of other forums. Leader will continue on as your moderator. Larry and I are mostly retired from that position.

This was a last-minute job and we all had previous commitments, so the move has a few rough edges. Sorry. We'll continue to work on smoothing that all out.

With this new domain, are we going to have trouble attracting new members? Is that even going to be possible?

In a day or two PackerChatters.com will point here.

Will we attract new members? Have we seen "peak NFL?" Will Gutekunst restore our roster to something more competitive? Will Tom Brady win the next ten SBs in a row, leading to millions going on his alkaline diet? Will TB12 Cocoa Avocado Ice Cream replace Cherry Garcia in Ben and Jerry's lineup? Will Danika suddenly lose her massive drive to go 200 mph, discover her hidden domesticity, settle down in Green Bay and start pumping out little Aarons? For the answers to these and other pressing questions, stay tuned.

The move to the current registration process will go along ways to attracting new members or former members from long ago, like me.

Danica is a Bears fan, see might try to get him to jump ship.

With the old forum URL now disabled, and with the relatively fast (and late) decision to keep the forum open, I’m thinking that the lack of traffic here the past few days may be a result of some folks not getting the memo that PC was still alive at this new URL.

I’d hate for us to lose folks who didn’t see Mark’s message and his Re-direct to this URL, and with the old forum link now gone, will those folks even know we’re here?  I typed in “PackerChatters” into a few different search engines and all of the links were broken.  Suggestions on how to get the word out?  I’m certainly grateful we’re still up and running (thank you Mark and Leader), and it would be fantastic if we could get as many folks back as possible.

It won't be until Jan. 30th that Mark will be able to take over the PackerChatters Domain and then things will start pointing to the new Forums.

Only way to get the word out that the Forums are up and running is by 'word of mouth' sharing the new URL.

I'm not saying at all to raid other Forums like was done to us a few years ago.

Yeah, I usually just read and I thought it shut down.  If I didn't stop by a few days ago and see the notice it was continuing I would of just moved on when the link didn't work.  I got here by searching packerchatters and checking the twitter account (dead) and then The Facebook page which had a link here.  Anyway,  figured I'd sign up so I would be alerted to any changes.  So you got 1 new member from the confusion at least  ;D

Yes the entire website is now closed.

I have our Facebook still up and as was mentioned by Schmidty X, and welcome here btw, put a link up to where the Forums are now being hosted.

Never started personally an Official PC Twitter account.

The 'word' will get out and January 30 Mark will be able to start pointing their things to the PackerChatters.com Domain which will get the search engines to do their thing.

I’m more a lurker than poster on this site but appreciate the “small-town” feel this little corner of the internet promotes. Glad to see this community carry on. Congrats!
