So many memories. So many hours spent on this forum. Where did all the posters go..

My opinion: most just grew up. The old user base was mostly young, and many likely just stopped posting on a hockey website.

I remember the game chat sessions we use to have, it was quite a few joining in every time. I think possibly remarketing this site might pick up a few more. Also adding twitter Facebook and possibly Instagram could possibly revamp the traffic. Just a thought.

What MH said as well as the poor performance of the team in the past few years has led to little if any worthwhile discussions.  As for the various social media options, I have thought of all that however I just don't have the time for it these days.

True. It has a lot to do with the highs the team reached in 2006 and then the mediocre seasons ever since.

Holy smokes, haven't posted here in 5 years. I remember 10-12 years ago this site had a lot of traffic. Memories... I suspect a lot of folks have moved to Hfboards. I admit it's kind of been the case for me but Hf is just unbearable to read most of the time. I'd rather read about hockey here but damn, looking at the forum... it's indeed a bit of a graveyard right now. :(

'Docawesome' ??? I must've been really young when I went with that name. Lol

Like Metal says alot of the posters were young but im curious why new posters didn't replace the ones that left. We just need the Sens to become a very strong team again and then we'll have the old sensnet back.

Im on Battlefield 1 forums lol.

Funny I should pick today to check back in on this old site.  Nice to read you again Doc.


I don't do a lot of online Message Forums anymore.  Not enough time for the arguments and Trash Talking anymore.


Go Sens Go.

P.s


I used to be on HFBoards but spend most of my time on Hockeyfights.com these days, but even that has lost a lot of traffic.

I can't believe it. Time flies. I started posting here when I was 20, now 34. I remember JL giving me relationship advice when I had my first serious gf. Lol

Wow...   Has the site been around that long?  At least we have outlived other forums out there.  I'm turning 59 this year.  Getting closer to retirement. 
Title: Re: Graveyard
Post by: Dagwood on April 19, 2017, 04:20:15 PM
Well, this sites longevity is all thanks to you BD.  I keep coming back expecting it to be shut down but alas, here it is   :mrgreen: .


I retire in 2 years myself @58,  it's the CPP loss for two years I'm not sure I can handle but I'm going to try.

Like Dags says sensnet's longevity is all thanks to you. Wish we could revive it again.

Do you still work with the fella from tmlfans?

Post by: Viper on April 19, 2017, 10:23:39 PM
Yep, you're the man BD!


Man, you guys talking of retirement gets me pretty jealous. Although in saying that, a musicians life isn't
at all bad.

Doc, I seem to remember the big Donut Hole Fiasco, not so much about Szuper giving you relationship advice.  :smily1263:

Haha Dags I remember that.

I was recently going over some of my private messages from 2003-2005-ish and wow cringe at some things I said lol. I must've been really young

I joined when I was a 20 year old, single, unemployed student. Now 36 married and have little 2 year old boy.

How I wish this place would get busy again. Lots of fun memories here.

Edit: lol my monkey avatar is finally gone

Post by: Metalhawk on May 11, 2018, 01:37:57 PM
What do you mean? The monkey is still there.

Myself, things haven't changed that much. Same wife, same job, same hobbies. Hell, I even still look the same, with only a few gray hair added to it. (and a few extra pounds) :laugh2:

The only things that has really changed is finally buying a house (condo, actually) 4 years ago.

Wow.  I thought of this forum and clicked in to take a look and saw this thread.   Not one of the main folks like metal et al but I still managed to crank up 14k in posts, way more than any other forum, when I was active.  This place had a special and great vibe that is missed.   A  :drink: to everyone.

Check on here every once in a while. Hopefully, we can all crank this board back up to where it used to be.

I think the "forum" format is just dying out. Unfortunately things like Facebook and twitter are becoming the more popular media to chat on however I dont think theyre as personal as places like this were... People become friends (as much as they can be), have good debates and discussions here.. Elsewhere its like people yelling on a soapbox...


Its too bad its come to this point, but what a great place this was.
Title: Re: Graveyard
Post by: Dagwood on November 17, 2018, 07:28:33 PM
Popping in to say Hello Ol Fellas!!!!   


Hope all is well.  Lets see now.


I reached 404 Lbs in life,  Felt Like shit...that was in 2016.
Since then,

Quit smoking (2.5 Packs a day for 35 Years)
Change my Lifestyle
Had Stomach reduction surgery Feb 2017
My Wife left me in March 2018
I met my current Girlfriend April 2018  (hahaha)
Down to 246 Lbs  (158 lb s lost)


I am living life like i never have before, I'm off all the Meds I was on except for 1 Crestor/day
My knees, Back and Mind are all healthy as heck.
I can retire as early as next year.


Go Sens,   Love these New kids we have on the team.  Since Karlsson gone, team plays much more of team game versus get the puck to EK all the time.    I think we'll have a lot to talk about in the next couple of years.


Thanks Again BD for Keeping SN alive.   Can you port it over to FaceBook?  LOL   :icon_bowdown2:

Glad to hear all is well.  I wish more people would come to the site and say hi but these are the times of social media.  I do have a facebook page for SN but I don't have the time to maintain it or anything.
