Although I am not a MOD, or have any connection with this site, I would be interested why all of you come here?

I would love to know why the regulars post here, read here, and vent here. What makes you tick, why here at Packers Home?

I AM ESPECIALLY INTERESTED IN THE ANSWERES FROM PEOPLE WHO LOG ON REGULARLY, READ, AND NEVER POST. I KNOW THERE ARE A TON OF YOU!

GO AHEAD AND MAKE YOUR FIRST POST.

Is it the people or members posts that make you respond? Is it the thread content and education? Is it because you have been to other packer sites and it was not as well run?

Is it because you love some of the naysayers and love reading their conviction of how the Packers "Suck"?

Is it because you have no life and have been spanking the monkey all day on porn sites and just needed a little NFL Packer Talk this off season? :icon_smile:

Be candid.

Like I said.... I am not affiliated with this site...

I just am a very inquisitive guy. Some times I just need answers to thoughts that burst into my mind.

Praytell... Readers and Posters..... Why The Hell Are You Logging On?

Wow......HEAVY post R.P!!!

Me.......as you know, i was on that "other" site when it kind of went nuts. So when Zero told me of this place, i figured I'd check it out. Been here ever since.
Me, i have several reasons i come here. I have alot of people that i have met here (and on that other site) and i consider them friends. And except for a few, this is my only way of connecting with them.
I enjoy the interaction with people. Even those i don't agree with. And i DO take and look at everything fairly before i make up my mind on what to think.
Sometimes, people here have made me change my stance on some things, because of their posts. Other times, what some have posted have made me get behind what i feel is right even more.
Plus..........i think everyone should get their daily balance of "Cheesying", and how else can they get it if I'm not here??? :thumbleft:

I enjoy the camaraderie between Packer fans in this forum. Most, if not all of the posters here are entertaining and insightful. It's rare in forums unfortunately.

And although it's refreshing to hear differing opinions, sometimes after a long day's work/uni I just want to relax and cheer up on some positive news from my favourite sports team. Some of the forums which are less moderated, like in JS Online tend to have constant bickering between people which isn't very nice to read all the time.

Because "Vikerules" posts here and I need a good laugh every day!!!!

And of course it's the best packer forum bar none.

I don't take anything I say or post on here seriously and I believe the majority of people on here are like minded.

And the streaming, don't forget that.

Like cheesey, I started at that "other" site, and ended up here when it went down. I enjoy the give and take of Packers fans....even when I disagree with them....provided they do so in a respectful way.

Although I have never met any of you folks except ToPacker, I have a feeling of knowing some of you who have been around a while. Great camaraderie......

I've been asking myself the same question lately. We have over 1500 members. That's not too bad for a site that doesn't do any advertising or anything like that.

I originally came here because I have lots of idea's for web design and I needed to explore them. I figured what better way than to make a Packers website. It combined two of my hobbies. Another reason was the NFL didn't like me having my video's on YouTube. I was advised if I hosted them on a non profit website that they could turn the other way. It all just added up.

We had a few good members posting here, talking Packers with me. Then one day. PF took the dump of website hell when we were at 359 members and one month later we were at 581 with more posts than I could keep up with. Now we're about 9 months later and sitting at 1525 ... seems pretty crazy to me. I never seen this coming.

It's pretty cool having you all here and posting and reading. Thank you.

I also came here from PF and some other forums. This is a good Packer site and I like to read and talk about the Packers. The forums are set up very nicely. It's fun to keep up on the "latest" and nice to get a little scoop from the people around GB because I grew up not to far from there and I know there are are always rumors going around about the Pack. Some of then are even true.LOL

Also, the people here seems to respect people's other points of view. Members are pretty knowledgeable which makes for a better discussion. The personal attacks are minimal.

Of course, a little "Cheeseyness" helps bighten my day. Best of health to you my forum friend.

Great site, keep up the good work.

Also, it's hard to neglect the simplicity of the forum design. It just feels cosy and accessible. Some are either too generic or very cumbersome.
