Yes...wide is starting a poll. I have now officially become a message board geek.
Just curious what you guys think about this...
Of the eleventy billion new posters that have joined since the playoffs started...or late in the season...what percentage will actually be here this time next month?

47 people have joined this forum since Monday 12-12-05. That's when I joined. wide-e-wide pulled me in, its his fault. By the way wide2 I don't hate the cowboys anymore, I just feel sorry for them, (but that's a whole nother tread). I've been a regular reader of this forum for 2 football seasons, but always talked myself out of joining, but now i'm here. You won't find me in the Main Statewide Board much, (I think it is a confusing mess with to much trash talking) but you will find me on the NFL, College, and Off-Topic Discussion boards. That's where my knowledge is. Another thing I don't like about the Main Statewide board is all the misguided ill-informed information being past around. To much of it is based on here-say. I've notice that when I post a news article about the subject being discussed the thread stops or takes an abrupt turn to another subject. Maybe some posters don't want the truth. I also think some posters should have to take a common sense test before they can start a thread. Anyway, I voted that less than 10% would be around in 1 month.

make that 48 people. 1 more joined while I was typing and submitting the previous thread. That makes 2042 members on 12-17-05. It will probably slow down now that the high school football season has officially ended.

Not yet...but I do count the threads and give them each my own little title. This is one is called super-duper poll #4343234AJ5...I file them not in alphabetical order...but rather in order of which letter the 4th poster's name begins with. It's a complex system...but I have to do it or they will revoke my membership.

I'm voting less than 10%. Here's what my numbers say:

We have over 2000 posters, but I only see joined dates for about 1600.

Look when people joined.

April 250 and I was on Page 6 because the board didn't transfer over for a while for me. I think LPMOM was the only Hall of Famer to join after me.
May 63
June 86
July 68
August 193 (73 after the first game) They're posting because the games are coming.
September 205
October 217
November 376 (330 after the last regular season game)
December 184

Over 500 have joined since the playoffs started and over 1000 since the season started. Considering we had a little over 400 before August, I'd have to say a lot of people are about to disappear. I didn't realize we went all summer with that small amount of people.

I was on another forum for the last 4 years when I found this one in Oct. This one is far more interesting and at times more personal.....and I was hooked. I guess Wide, Lonny D08 and the rest of the Vets will have me to pick on during the offseason. Anyways, it was a wonderful 1st season and I'm looking forward to many more.......as long as I don't get BANNED!:D

If you don't want to get banned, read what Wide says and don't copy it!:p He's got Lazarus beat. He only came back from the dead once!:D

Hey, you can plan on getting picked on if you stick around. Nobody is excluded from my teasing from myself to the admins.

Same thing here, texasprepxtra.com was like a ghost town the entire year, even in the playoffs, thats when I decided to join this site after reading it for about two years. The people are much cooler here too.

The important thing is to have a system...like with the beer frig...I use FIFO...First In, First Out...no stale brews...no warm brews...:)

See Lonny, no period...:D

My beer system is very complexed...
1 in the beer fridge which is slightly colder...1 in the freezer....and 1 in cool down mode in the fridge in the kitchen...when you get one out of the inside fridge (cool down mode) you have to shift the other two...so you go to the garage...move the one in the beer fridge to to the freezer...take the one in the freezer to the fridge in the kitchen...and lastly grab the one in kitchen....then repeat once you finish that one.

Everybody following me?

I have done that a few times...Pisses me off more than it does her...that's wasting beer!

If you can ever perfect this system...ahhhh baby...it is wonder-fuss I guarantee....On that day you will feel as though you are in the zone...the consumption timing is right on...and every beer you drink will have little bitty flakes of ice in it...whooooo! Hell yeah...that's what I'm talking about.

my system is before I go to school or go to work, is to get out my cooler, sit it next to my chair, put six beers on the bottom, poor half the bag of ice on it, place 6 more beers on that layer of ice, poor the rest of the ice on those beers then put the remaining 6 on that final layer of ice. I then have the emergency 12 pack in the frig as well. This usually gets me through a ball game as I try to finish a beer per half inning. Never having to get up to grab a beer out of the frig. By the end of the game I usually go to bed or just bust into the emergency pack and drink till I pass out, which usually is only a few more after that.

I, for one, visit this site serveral times daily but I usually find that someone else has posted something that almost mirrors my opinion. I find aggressive posters enjoyable, and sometimes annoying, but there is always a balance with those who are sensable.:)

We gotta hang out bro...definitely this baseball season. I won't even get into my bar-b-q/beer drinking routine. It is only for guys that can really...really...really multi-task.

the key is to use those gallon size plastic bags. That way if you forgot about the one in the freezer it just explodes into the plastic bag and does not make a mess.

Either that...or you could constantly have a running tally of how many you have left and how many you have drank...that way you always have every beer accounted for....

But I know what you mean...sometimes in the wee hours of the night you lose count...I thought I was completely out one night...and suddenly I remembered I had another 6pk that I hid from myself tucked away in one of those little drawers in the bottom of the fridge. I actually did a little dance when I found them!!

The problem that I have is one is in the freezer and then I get a phone call and then something else distracts me and then I go to sleep. The next morning I open the freezer and there is beer everywhere. That is why I now use the ziploc bag method.

By half-time of the second game I'm out of the zone...hence the freezer burn...:mad:

I am not allowed to get the dreaded dirty/30 anymore...something about I don't know when to quit...yadda,yadda...But at one time it was a staple of the Wideman household (at least my part of it).

I drive my wife crazy...counting beers...counting pennies and which way is economical...and which way is a ripoff...you could learn a great deal of math just by being a beer drinker.

I can tell you which beer companies are scamming their comsumers the most....

Right now it is Budweiser...the 16oz Bud Lights only come in 4pks now...but at the same price they used to charge for the 6pk!!:eek: :eek:

So what does Miller Lite do?....they jack up the prices for their 16oz 6pks hoping to grab some of those pissed off Bud drinkers and profit off of them at the same time.

But it is usually Budweiser that rips off their consumers the most...and that crap taste like.......well crap.
