I have an account on every forum online I have seen related to this football team. The Cowboys reddit, Cowboyszone, DallasCowboysUniverse, etc.

I have been a poster here for a long time. And I love some of the users here. And enjoy some of the subjects discussed. But the quality of the content found here pales in comparison to the other forums. And I have no idea why this forum has gone downhill, but it has, big time.

If I want news about the Cowboys, I go to Cowboyszone. Then I go to r/NFL for insight. Then I discuss either there or Cowboyszone. I don't venture into this place anymore; unless I want to argue about music in the fireside chat. Because the info I find here is worthless. It's just not good information.

The content here is much more opinionated and negative. There are far more trolls than on the other forums, and people who literally don't know what they're talking about. Or are just looking to stir up trouble.

This thing needs a major change. ASAP. And I don't really care if this thread gets locked or deleted, which it likely will.

And yet you created a post because?

My guess is he likes this forum and many of the people here, and he wants to see it get back to what he perceives it once was.

My guess is he is confused.

This is the 4th time over the years that I've seen this declared.   And this place hasn't changed.  


My doctor told me to start killing people.   Well, not  in those exact words.   He said I had to reduce the stress in my life.    Same thing, really.

Not locked or deleted, but moved to the correct forum.

It's gone downhill because some of the great posters have left, whether permanently or just for the off season, and they've been replaced with people who want to do nothing but complain about the team, coaches, Goodell, and the forum...........You should've checked into the Pointless thread once in a while.

as a long time redditor I disagree, it's very droll there and being a newb here  ....  I've been pretty intrigued with the atmosphere 'round this joint, some of these posters make me laugh out loud

 

i've never understood message board peeps that seriously think their opinion matters

Ksk, my main man. I've been here for 5 years and I think it's changed a lot. But that's just me.

What is the difference between you and i?

felt the same way many times before Blue. Like Runny said, it hasn't really changed its just some of the people we're used to seeing around for so many years don't come around as much. I still love the people here and will always feel a debt of gratitude towards those people for helping me get through some really tough times in my life. Things im not sure I would have been able to get through without some of them. I'm trying to get back in the swing of things and post more often and not take things so seriously. I know sounds weird coming from a guy who doesn't wear pants right?

I liked it better when we could post comments after the articles and not have to use a separate forum to comment.  But those days are apparently gone forever so this will have to do.

I'm an old fert!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

I think it's because I've seen so much.    I've seen so many posters come and go.    So many come in and post a lot, but then w/i the next year or so leave.    Ebb and flow, ebb and flow.    You may just be seeing an ebb right now.  

 

Plus, I respect several posters on here a ton, and I love to see what they have to say.    Maybe just learn who to listen to?

That had to be fixed, as those articles were the super highway for spam. The spam got so out of hand that every thread was full of them, and we were getting multiple complaints every single day about them. The way it used to be set up, anyone could post in the articles without having to register an account (Which is the screening process ) and spam bots were almost exceeding registered posters.
