    Default 1,000th Post

    Just wanted to say thanks to all who have helped make this board a success.

    Here's a little known fact. The person who is largely responsible for originating this board--Ken Sands--is one of internet journalism's true pioneers. Ken is now the online Executive Editor for Innovation for the Congressional Quarterly. From GUBoards to Congressional Quarterly. Not too bad.

    From the reports I have received, this is one of the most successful independent (not affiliated with Scout or Rivals) college sports fan message sites.

    Thanks to those who moderate this site and to those who report spam and other transgressions.

    Thanks to those such as Section116 and Zagnative who comb the internet for information and links to Zag-related stories.

    Thanks to our friends from other WCC schools such as IronLions, Pilot Nut, Freezer12, and MJGoGaels for dropping by and playing in our sandbox. To those who want to lift their legs in our sandbox, well, that's why there's a delete function.

    Thanks to the many very good friends I've made through this community and to the old friends with whom I've reconnected after many years.

    Thanks to Uber for sucking up more than his share of negative rep.

    Above all, Go Zags!

    Thirded.

    This is hands down the best message board community I have come across, and I've belong to and even run quite a few. It's not of its own accord, a lot of hard work is involved, both by those in authority and members for making their contributions thoughtful.

    Angelo, you're a slacker. You should have been to at least 2,000 posts by now.

    It is the members of this board that definitely make it a success. The contributions from the members are what make it worthwhile checking in everyday if not every hour.

    Thanks Angelo for your help along with BZ, CDC and others who were committed to maintaining an independent board and really made it happen.

    Thanks to all the Admins and Mods..accept (that's for you Uber) for the MIA post-padder general. When he returns, well, we'll talk about it then.

    Sincerely thanks for giving us this gift of a site.

    Default My 2 cents

    I'd also like to echo what Angelo said about Section116, Zagnative and others when it comes to their helping hand in making this site what it is. One of the positive aspects of their efforts is that we are getting more open discussion about recruiting than ever before, which keeps this board from being a wasteland during the offseason. This was a worry of mine when we transitioned over to this site. It turns out that we are seeing more board activity during the offseason than ever before. But that is also a credit to the regular posters on this board who are bringing better and better thought provoking analysis to the table.

    Continued thanks to all who keep it going, while still making it interesting and maintaining the high level of content.

    I want to add my thanks, as well. The members of this board are great. I feel very close to some of them and there are others I would really like to get to know better. Thanks to the administrators for making this such a successful forum. Go Zags! OregonZag

    I don't know who you are, so don't falsely say you know me. Oh, and your "joke" wasn't funny.

    It's comical that a shout out was given to other WCC participants because those that were named is all that there are. We're few and far between.

    Based on Angelo's post, it looks like the Gonzaga board has done pretty well without the leglifters. OTOH, at least one of the other WCC boards thrives because the leglifters like to talk about everything that's happening on our board. Now that is pure comedy.

    My thanks as well for great entertainment value. Getting to know the team well, makes the season that much more fun. I appreciate everyone who contributes. Thanks

    Bigtime kudos to BobZag and Angelo. That's quite a testement for a non - football school's message board forum. The most successful "non - affiliated" website. Awesome.

    As to the high level of this forum, and the effort it takes --- please know that it's a labor of love.

    In my opinion, as is the case with the Zags -- I believe the best is yet to come.

    BZZZ. Wrong. There are many more actually that have met in person, welcome one another in each others home college towns, and dialogue outside this website.

    You guys should have told Angelo that each post was worth a billable hour. Clearly, I find coming over hear worth a few precious minutes periodically.

    Lets debate the coming season starting October 15th after all the pundits have spoken. I seem to recall a few good exchanges about Gael and Bulldog matchups without flames. Last season was closer than some believed on this board, and to the extent I contribute to a reality check or just fun so be it.

    Freezer12 - just for you even though we've never met.

    Debate the season soon enough MJ. Soon enough. I just notcied that the WCC is predicted to be a multibid conference for the NCAA tournament. SM, Zags and possibly Billy's kids in SD. Hope it's true.

    Meanwhile though, I don't know if we understand how hard the owners, Mods, etc work to keep this board going. It's really quite a treasure. And so, I issue a hearty "THANKS" to the Mods.and THANX to ZN without whose work we woudn't be so entertained or informed. Well done peoples.
