    Well, this didn't turn out as planned, and I know I'll hear it for a decade. :D

    For those not familiar with what happened to our old site, it still exists, but in a very "bugged" state.

    Long story short, the old site was running on a database that was over 6 years old. The recent upgrade was an attempt to add some nice/cool features. However, they are still buggy. I would take some time to get them all sorted out.

    In the end, I think you'll like this site better, and will be MUCH faster!

    I sincerely apologize for having to rebuild the site. While posts, threads, and user information is able to be seen by the staff, consider it gone.

    Upon request I can transfer your join date from the old site.

    Enjoy the new site, and tell me how much better you like it. :D

    BEAR DOWN!

    Rick

    Its the least I can do for forcing a new re-build.

    I am confident everyone will love this place much better.

    I still have much work to do, like styling etc.. I think I have the majority of it set up, with only minor adjustments left.

    I can't believe all of Mr. D's badass posts have been deleted.

    Thankfully SoulMan's ridiculously long posts have also gone by the wayside. hehehe

    Trust me, you don't want to post on the old upgraded site. That place is slow, and buggy. This place is rocking fast!

    This site is much faster. Thanks for all your hard work Mr. Ski-Whiz. You run a tight ship on here and I think you have the best Bears message board on the net. Mr. D. appreciates the privilege of being on here.

    OK... Cool cool... a link would be appreciated when you're ready... or who knows... maybe a new avatar is in order. I feel like I just moved to a new city and I can be whoever I want!

    Also, if you could direct me to a way to sort of universally "unwatch" threads, that'd be cool... or if that's something you will get to for everyone, then just disregard this request. I just don't want an email every time someone posts on this board...

    That being said, I already like the feel of the board... and as someone who has laid out a lot of dirty laundry on this board... I'm not sure this re-boot is such a bad thing for me. hahaha
