    I'm not sure who put this website together, but they deserve a lot of credit. I have been on different bear websites since 2000. I like how this website is put together and functions. I get through the year by reading what others have to say and their perspectives about the Bears. It is nice to be with like minded Bear fans. One again thank you very much for creating and maintaining the website. Go Bears!

    Thanks. The members, including myself have gone through a LOT. We actually started the site over at DaBearz.com. We eventually purchased this domain name, ran both sites at the same time. Then I pulled the trigger to merge them.

    We have a pretty funny, and long history here! This site was been maintained by not just me, but the "staff" here, especially while I was deployed (I was active duty U.S. Navy; I recently retired).

    While we have issues some times, I have the same frustrations, so I try to resolve them. I also try to keep things fresh here.

    While we may not be perfect, we make up for it with good times!

    Thanks for the compliment, but honestly, the members and staff deserve more of the credit. I usually give out more headaches than anything. Have the time people don't know what I'm doing next.. lol

    This morning, I found some colors that were cooperating. So I'm tweaking them, without affecting other colors on the site (it's a pain since most colors are connected on here).

    BEAR DOWN!

    Isn't there some sort of law that says you can't just work on some colrs and ignore the rest?

    HAHAHA! Nice! Somehow I bet we could debate this in The Bar Scene..

    Funny thing is when I tweak one color, it also affects another area. Since there are a lot of share color "variables".

    I added a more advanced text editor. So it's a little harder, but adds a LOT more function for those that want it.

    Click "Insert"--> Smilies.. The smilies will pop up as normal.

    If you hover over the smilies a window will pop up on the right, but that is a terrible way to get smilies.

    So click the Insert --> Smilies.. Then you will see them all separated by tabs and categories.

    I started this place because of the cbmb and how they didn't care about their message board.

    many people have tried to copy our feel and ideas but we still remain solid while they have collapsed.

    how long have you been visiting the site?

    Well the sole credit for the idea and the incubation goes to Ski-Whiz. Back in 2004 he got tired of all the trolling, trash talking and juvenile bullshit that went on the Bears official site and decided to start this site recruiting a number of us from that official site along the way.

    It's been about ten years now (don't we have an official tenth year anniversary coming up?) and not only are we still going strong, we've grown tremendously in membership as well as having increased the sophistication of the site ten fold or more.

    Glad to have you with us sluggo. It's good posters and good members who help keep this place alive with lot of help and assistance from Ski and the rest of the Admin Staff. It works well because they all work hard to keep it this way.
