Ever feel unwanted as a poster? I did too.

I’ve been posting here for close to 4 years now and I’ve gained some insights though my chats with many very knowledgeable people.  These discussions have been sports related, and related to general life as well.  Throughout all this time however, my main concern was “How the hell can so many people continue to post on this forum with all the viable alternatives?”  The admins of this site have proven themselves corrupt and incompetent time and again, and I’m not the only one to notice.  From removing all avatars that weren’t sports-related (only recently have they relented this policy after much public backlash) to deeming certain threads and posts “off topic” just because they didn’t conform to their standards, the ivory tower dwellers here at CBS have proven their ignorance time and again.  This led to me and a few others asking: “Where can we go to find a home that is user-friendly?”

The answer, my friends, is NGS Forums.

Paste that into your address bar.  Bookmark it.  You'll be glad you did.

We at NGS have you, the poster, in mind.  Our staff, moderators and admins, are all regular posters like you so we understand your concerns.  We have no militaristic restrictions on avatars.  We have a Sexy Avatar Thread just like here on CBS.  The only difference is you can actually post your pictures without the giant “oops!!” that is so prevalent here.  Of course, there are rules, but they are set in stone and easy to follow.  We cater to the die hard sports fan, as well as the more casual observer.  All your standard general chat, bar threads, and music areas are there as well.  We have something to offer everyone, and perhaps our most important feature is the ability to eliminate trolls.  Any troll that enters is removed by ip, never to return.  You won’t find a troll creating dozens of accounts; that is impossible.

In conclusion, I hope you give NGS Forums a look.  Come over and create an account; you will find several great people around to help you.  If you’re reading this, you probably have me as a favorite so you can presumably trust my judgment on this.  Don’t settle for mediocrity!!  Come join a very special community where you will be treated like family.  Come to NGS Forums.  Our address again is:

I made the switch 2 years ago and have not looked back.

As a mod myself at NGS, I can echo the comments Blitz has made.... we care about the posters, and are very easy going.   Trolls do not run rampant there as they do here, and if you have an issue... please... just let the mods or admins know.  It will be handled immediately.

One the WAYLT thread I'll sometimes be left out in the cold. I try to get involved, but the people there just won't have anything to do with me.

I'll check it out.
