I have like 5 of the Chiefs in. Check out the front page of the Bronco site for instructions on posting pics VA. Enjoy. It will be slow at first. Every great river starts with a small trickle.

There is personal email as well. It is the red envelope below your naked av.

I noticed you guys think you need to refresh after each post? You don't. Make your post and before you can count to 10 it will redirect you back. Have a great day!

As for sports dog. He is one of your guys. I hope he knows I am not ex finally. Have him hit up my Facebook if he wants in.

If you look above, you should see "View new posts" and if you click that it will bring up ALL the new posts on the forum that you have not yet read.
Hope that helps, BTW if you go into the
"Peaceful Corner" forum, there's information that will help the newbies get up to speed quicker.
Enjoy the place, it is pretty cool with minimal moderator intervention. You have to do something a bit over the top to catch their wrath.
:D

I just wanted to drop by and introduce myself.
People call me
"Pollster" and I'm one of the moderators here in the Land of Swiss.
Further on down the road when everyone gets settled in and comfortable, we'll reopen a couple other forums for some fun stuff.

Feel free to drop me a line if you have any issues, or you can just click on the triangle on a post to report it for some reason.
A good reason would be trolling/spamming/harassing/basic assholeness, and one of the Moderators will address the issue.
I have to say that there's not been too many trolls over here, or our previous website/forum in the past.

Enjoy, have a good time and oh yeah..... ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL??

I suppose its time for me to say hello since the moderators are introducing themselves. Welcome everyone to Switzerland. Enjoy your stay. Let your friends know about the place if you like it. Have them contact kicks or Utah with a user name so that they can get in the swinging doors.

A quick semantic question: Do we call it "basic assholeness" OR
"basic assholedness" ...?

Thanks for the welcome!!



WHISTLE BLOW!!!

Yeah I think they both will work, one thing you won't see the mods doing is correcting your grammar.
We're not the spelling police here, even if I might be a little CDO, that's the same thing as "OCD" only in the correct alphabetical order. :D

There are 5 or 6 of you registered. Give it time. Spread the word. Activity is the most important thing. They see a dead page and they won't come. So keep posting away.

I believe the problem is the cite does not allow direct response to specific posts -- It is "linear" - one has to go all the way down to track conversations. Several years ago I posted on a site "Wild Bill's Chiefs" which was exactly like this site - however - it had posts organized in which the was posting as to specific subjects - much as UPS does with his C&P's - and people then comment on that threads. This approach leads to excellent football discussions. My sense is the mods should adapt the site to allow for a range of specific topics / mini-pages under each team page -- That would result in good discussions. Otherwise, a LOT more good things for posting here... I am certain the good folks on the Denver page likely are seeing the same things...

hi...im dred...a Cowboy fan...you can set your board preferences so the last post is on top...

VAChiefsFan. I want to address your issue with the format if you don't mind. I was sent a PM (private message) that you were having a discussion on another site that the moderators do not listen to suggestions. In contrary we do. Having perused the CBS site I have never seen a moderator comment on that site. We are called Switzerland because we are neutral and all teams are welcome to gel and talk together.

As for the format. I believe it was addressed by Dred. But I would like to shed another light on this subject. Have you ever been on another site and responded directly under someones post but the poster that you were talking to was not online for several days and the post was buried and never seen? Well, with the quote format, that does not happen. It allows for you to directly respond to someone and have that response seen when you see that poster online and use the quote. We are on version 3.0 here and we have made significant changes to please the posters on our site. We do make an occasional presence when needed but feel that it is best to remain silent for the majority of the time. We are here to help you and intervene when necessary. We do take all comments and suggestions seriously but we have to abide by the wishes of the many and not the few. Thank you for your participation here in Switzerland and we value your input. Happy Easter weekend to all.

Morning guys. I have had about 8 Chief fans request to join. Some are just watching I guess. Go to members tab and look at the names. Newest ones are at the end. I don't know some of them so it's possible ex could get in. But we have moderator presence so I'm not concerned.

As for rookie status. Keep posting. See what happens.

All bots are exactly that, they are just computer controlled searches. They constantly search the net for relevant information that is not already in their searches info base. Then they use that information for making the relevant links when people do a search online.
I hope that helps explain it a bit better.

Hey Fletch. Welcome. If you click the Board Index above and then go to Peaceful Corner, there are lots of tips and help there. That is where you can get instructions on loading an av. Enjoy. Feel free to talk in any room that is open.

Hey rdr Joe!! -- A belated Happy Easter!! I see you were able to keep your avatar!! It always makes me think - but isn't it 180 diametrically opposite the Raider philosophy...?!! Come on over to the side that lives in the light!! :D

Hey UPS!! I have visited several times and tried to get an avatar - but I have run into the same problems that you have, earlier: It just does not work for me... I can't get an avatar "reduced" to the right size... I'll keep trying!!


Great seeing youse. He is the light of the world. About the Raiders philosophy, long, long story. The entire team including the logo is founded after the original Marine Raiders of legendary exploits. (this is where and another great reason we must get Hank in here STAT) Living tribute to the honor of the elite team of Sp Ops. My youngest son is carrying on the tradition to this day.

But it would take so long...... today is too short. We can always revisit it, God willing.

You guys take care, have a great day.

Peace !
