      Some of the best events were meeting fellow posters. Meeting up at Michigan games, meeting up at the CCHA playoffs (met aparch there the first time, and a BUNCH of former regulars- anyone remember the epic Red Wings tattoo?), and the Frozen Four. I really, really, really enjoyed the couple of posters games I played in (and I organized the 2007 one at Yost). And we always had meetings between periods and games at the FF. The number of people I've been able to meet- including some great people from very rival teams.

      And when went on business trips where I could go to some random game, I put in effort to meet people at the games- or even before. I know wT made it her missions to visit all of the rinks in this crazy hobby.

      Having stopped going to FF's, I do miss meeting people. Then again, for the last few, we really didn't try to meet much.

      • Count me in for a new site as well if we end up going down that road. As well as being willing to pay a little if necessary. Not sure what I would do if this site disappeared and there was no replacement. As I've mentioned in previous posts, I had considered myself a slightly right-of-center/independent until the 2016 campaign and started lurking in the Cafe. It didn't take long for me to realize that I had been extremely misinformed the last 30 plus years. I have to be honest, I've had a man-crush on Kepler since I first started reading his posts and, was genuinely disappointed when he took his hiatus to work on the elections. I have a FB account but hardly ever actually go on there. My only request is that we decide on a place we're going to be able to find out what our next step is soon, just in case they shut this thing down unexpectedly.

          Definitely remember that tattoo. That was a fun weekend (and have gone back to Houghton for either hockey or summer vacation every year since).
          Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

              Sweet Canadian Mullet's tattoo? Ahhh yes.

              The CCHA meetups were so much fun. So glad to put faces with names. Need to do that again sometime when the pandemic is over.

              Going down to Detroit for the CCHA Championships, participating in tInvasion, and even attending a few fellow posters weddings were such good times.

                Overall details can get a bit fuzzy though...

                    Funny you mention that - I'm still clinging to my (lower-case "l") libertarian philosophy, however Trump in specific and the right's reaction and response to COVID in general has horrified me. My dad and one of my brothers have both accused me of turning into a "left wing coastal elite" very recently.

                    Well, fine. Then I'll be an elite something.

                      this made me laugh. I am a pragmatist at heart but my actually considering the consequences of simplistic thinking has never held sway with dad les. He has accused me of being a "commie pinko" since my college years when I... gasp... asked about Reagan's trickle down policies because I didn't understand the logic and I didn't get how people believed it would work. And my college professors turned me into a socialist. I think I was the first girl in the family to go thru college and getting a second degree didn't help any

                        • Messaged Board on FB after being unable to get on last night. Who ever Board is, they replied that they were putting in a fix this morning. Told me to file a ticket. Replied multiple people had put in tix with no response so wasn't sure there was anyone dealing with them

                          I asked about the rumors they were planning to shut the Forum down. No plan to do that.

                          Database issues were the cause of the multiple outages. Supposedly something multiple forums were experiencing.

                          So, there you have it

                          • A. The day I met alfa was at the Detroit Marathon expo. It was a good day in a chaotic time (my Mom had passed 1.5 months prior).

                            B. I'm missing poster meetups. Even with school and work, I am eager to actually meet so many of you.

                            C. I think a mod would do well to at least suspend CM and Jeb. In the old days, this was possible, as board cared and struck down trolls with great vengeance and furious anger. These days, Flaggy would be allowed to run amok.

                            • Lets be fair...they let Flaggy run wild too. Every few months they would warn hi or suspend hi which would calm him for a week or so but he would have been banned on any other board I frequent.
