I was just looking around and I have to say that there has been a lot of work put into PTE. I am very pleased with the opportunity to grow some of the content started here. I mean, you've got Twilight Zone, Tales From The Crypt, The Outer Limits, The Night Stalker, Lazybox is looking into the old Alfred Hitchcock series...it's great!

I know some of you guys have been concerned about having more members but that will come. The best part about this site is how much good shite is on here.

:clap: :clap:

I am encouraged as I read this.

The majority of the work was placed upon DrM. Although we kind of decided that "enough was enough" somewhere else, and we both agreed that another option should be available.
Lazy and SVB both should be applauded for the work on the TFTC threads. (I have only seen 2-3 of those, and it was so long ago, I need to pick them up)

Also Phineas has done his share as well. I know he isn't here very often, but thats about what DrM and I was expecting, and its working out just fine.
I think we are self-policing enough, where Phineas isn't needed too often, so its a win-win for all.
DrM and I also talked long ago, that if the board ever grew big enough, that we would consider getting another moderator to help, but only if we see the need. So far, the limited time that Phineas has, is a perfect fit.

It rang eerily familiar, that several of us (at the old joint)had communicated through PMs, and talked on IM, and chats and such, and I began to notice a growing dissatisfaction with that place and the direction it was going.
Its not like the idea of a new board just "came out of the blue" to me and DrM. We noticed alot of changes over there, and personally I think it was about the time that Flight33 stepped down. I am not placing the whole blame on Bevis, but on a number of factors actually. He is a decent moderator I suppose, but just a little too strict for my tastes. and a few others it seems LOL

You may have noticed that sometimes I am a bit down on the smaller numbers here, but I too have come to realize what you said at the OLCafe is true.

Just because we don't have the large numbers yet, isn't necessarily a bad thing.

As long as the quality of posts and content are good (umm, barring the picture pwn4ge games :clap: ), thats all thats important.

And rest assured that, DrM and I are doing a variety of things to try and increase membership.
Personally I have tried to snag a couple off of the IMDB boards in the last week or so. I hate those boards, they just aren't very user-friendly , at least to me anyways.

DrM and Phineas have talked about a "portal page", but the jury is still out on that one, we are waiting for a bit more feedback from the members on that one.

Wow, I should have added this in as well.

Thats the one great thing about this site, and DrM and I figured it that way from square one.
HAVING THE ABILITY TO DISCUSS ALL THE SHOWS THAT WE LIKE ---IN ONE PLACE

Its alot easier, and it keeps you from having to go from board to board, to talk about other topics.

Yes, that is the most appealing thing about PTE. Other than the members, that is.

Some fine sentiments were expressed in this thread that I kinda probably should have responded to earlier ... but it's never too late. Great shows, great posters, good place to hang out and relax without the stress. As Whit expressed - members will start coming around and I have been pimping the site - but PJ and I can't do it alone, so we need your help.

Here is your chance to "Pimp PtE" with this lovely sig banner.

Image

For the more adventurous out there, you can code it into your sig at other boards like this:

Code:
[url=http://pushingtheenvelope.freeforums.org][IMG]http://i256.photobucket.com/albums/hh176/pjwhoopee/PtELink.png[/IMG][/url]


which will give a direct link to us when they click on the banner - providing the BBC code is enabled that way.

Image

other choices of the sig banner are as follows:

Image

Code:

Code:

Have fun and pimp our site!
