      UPDATED: MESSAGE BOARDS CLOSING AFTER DRAFT   03/08/2017

      After careful consideration, we have decided that we will sunset our message boards after this year's NFL Draft. Since we opened our boards a decade ago, the digital landscape has greatly evolved. While we understand there remains a smaller group of highly-engaged fans who participate in conversation in our forums, a significant amount of the dialogue about our team and our games has migrated away to other social media platforms over the past several years. Our message boards will remain up and running through Friday, May 5th, and will be removed on May 6th. We recognize that this change may upset avid members of our community. However, we look to utilize our time and resources to focus on how we can best connect with our fans across an array of digital/social outlets. If you are not already engaging us and other members of the Ravens Flock on our Facebook page, Instagram account, through Twitter or Snapchat, we invite you to follow us on those channels and continue to participate in our social communities. In addition, the commenting feature on our website articles will remain intact. Members will be able to continue using their boards account to log in and share their thoughts at the bottom of every news story. We’d like to thank all the Flock members and our moderators who have brought thoughtful conversation to this space and made our community great for the last 10 years. Ravens Social Media Hub »

The most immediate issue I see is being hosted on boardhost. It's going to limit the software and features and the like in many ways. I'll PM him and talk to him about some concerns and we'll make sure we get this kicked off good and proper, the Ravens and their fans deserve nothing but the best!

would not mind paying a small  yearly contribution to have a good working site.

Me either. People like you and I are probably affected the most. I have literally no one I know that follows the nfl where I live

Thank you, Fly!

 

I, also, would have no issue making a small yearly or monthly contribution. I learn so much by just coming here and quietly reading posts by people much more knowledgeable than myself. I can't imagine not having this resource.

LOL.  I have been a Redskins fan since '71 and over the past 4-5 years have been warming to the Ravens.  These last few weeks have been the final straw with Daniel Snyder and I have decided to move my support to the Ravens.  Not exactly an easy decision.

 

So I found this board and registered, only to learn that it is shutting down.  I'm not having a good week.

oh im sorry man, that hurts - i think its safe to say no team deserves bruce allen but in terms of boards there's some hope - this one has been extended til after the draft and there's some options being created and thought about for the move - there's time for it all to work out - welcome aboard

Thanks for the welcome.   This move goes against everything I stand for as a hardcore sports fan.  You pick a team when you are 8, you have one and only one team in each sport, and that's your team for life win or lose.  And with the Wiz, Maryland Football, Redskins etc I took plenty of shots as I stuck by my rules.  But this is different,  just can't root for anything but failure for those 2 in Ashburn.

As I live in Carroll County a few times a year the Skins were not on Comcast so I had to break out the backup TV with rabbit ears.   It will be nice not to have to do that but I had to do it, I have missed 2  1/2 Redskins games in 45 years and only because of circumstances I could not control.

I registered for the site the other day, it be nice to see everyone here go over there. I will say though, the fact that we haven't even met each other in real life, don't know anything about one another except we are Ravens fan. Yet the solidarity we have where we have Bold that is willing to make a new site and everyone willing to join and go over there, says a lot. If this was any other forum, any other team's forums, I think most would take the news of it closing as just "whatever". 

Shows that much like a family, we may agree or disagree with certain posts, have our moments but yet we all respect each other. This is the only forum besides Operation Sports I'm on and seeing other team's forums, I don't think any one of those members would do something like this and make another forum and everyone follows. Just too bad those in the higher ups don't realize how great of a community we have here.

Probably picking the wrong battle here but how was that any difference than the O's blocking baseball in DC?  Washington adopted the Orioles, Baltimore rejected the Redskins.

That's it Dave.......you're out!     lol

While there's big differences in the fan bases and the ways each team was supported/rejected, I don't think anyone would say there was much difference in the butt head owners.  PA is every bit as bad as DS.

New board is just getting started, not much action.   My posts here are still under mod approval in case I say stupid stuff.  Redskins are still owned by Daniel Synder.   I feel so....so....alone.

You are going to be on preview for the first 15 posts as IM sure you read when you signed up.    An ancient  established community is Here on Scout  an infusion of new blood is needed.  Once you are approved there you can post to your hearts content

Oh I did not  mean to appear as if I was complaining.   I've been a mod and totally get that you need to make sure a new poster isn't here to sell Ravens gear made in Thai sweatshops.  Just looking for a home.  Interesting you would link another site, is there a relationship between the two?

As a moderator on the scout site I invite all our old posters back, and am looking forward to approving any new members that would like to join an established site with multiple forums. Security in place, and discussions are up to date and active.

Wish I could but apparently Scout is blocked at work as a "malicious URL."
