    It will if you give it a chance. (it won't be yours in the sense of owning it, but your site meaning the site where you're part of a community etc etc)</p>

    </p>

    Give it a chance guys. Or else you'll regret it. I really mean it. </p>

    Il take my chance. I'm sure you guys worked hard and all, but your going to lose A LOT of members. There's no way your getting more then 30 members to stay here and post active. Sorry but thats just how it is.</p>

    Hi guys,</p>

    I'm an Admin here, and I've been an Admin on other sites/forums before. I know change is a hard thing, but what I always look at is why there is change. We didn't want you guys to join us so we would neglect you, but we care about your community and want to add other aspects to it. Team Leaders and Mods from BBW will of course be welcome here. All of your posts are here. All of your forums are here. It's just a different way to access them. We have 5 advanced programmers working on the site, some with Video Game experience.</p>

    Now I know you might not be baseball fans, but this is for example:</p>

    http://sportstwo.com/Thread/View/AL/NYYANKEES/197122</p>

    Now that game thread is 100% automated. People who are not able to watch the game can follow along besides the usual imput from members. That will be incorporated for all sports that we support.</p>

    http://sportstwo.com/NBA/TeamStats/NEWJERSEY</p>

    We have stats built right in that are automatically updated.</p>

    Maybe some of you guys know of StoryTeller and his NBA salary data? He will be working with S2.</p>

    But if you have concerns please feel free to reach out to us and we'll try to help the process along.</p>

    -Petey</p>

    </p>

    This is rediculous..everybody is saying the exact same thing and its like you admins at S2 arent hearin what were saying! Now, I've had history with BBW...I signed up at hoops city..everythings was cool there but it wasnt everything considering we were on invisionfree. Then, Tony made the wise decision to make his own forum named it something so simple as Basketball World..I was the 50th member to join and I liked that place a lot. We then moved to an IPB and let me tell you, that was probably one of the coolest things ever. Everybody was so excited when Tony posted the news and the link and it was great. Then at BBW on the IPB, I had some issues with some guys and ended leaving, then coming, then leaving, and then coming back again..lol so you see what I mean by history.</p>

    </p>

    Now from what I saw yesterday when I came back to BBW was a growing site...we were the leading Basketball forum on the net, having over 4,000 members and a hell of a lot of posts. Now, just because you guys imported all of our stats into this new place, doesnt mean that we are just going to became BBW all over again..its never gonna happen. We're now S2, and BBW is dead..after atleat 4 years of hardwork, BBW is dead and it happened without us members not even knowing.</p>

    </p>

    Honestly this sucks in my opinion and I dont care what the hell you guys do to make this board "better", it's never going to be the same. I want BBW back, and I want our shit up and running again.</p>

    </p>

    You can take the members out of the forum, but you can't take the forum out of the members.</p>

    I agree 100% with Iverson3. It doesn't matter if everything from BBW came to S2, it isn't the same, the skin, the banner, the off topic sections, the articles, GFX.. everyone on BBW just knew each other and knew the staff.. it was like a close community even though we were a pretty big basketball site. I'm devastated that Combs sold the site after all of Tony's hard work to keep BBW as one of the top basketball sites on the net. All that hard work from Tony, and all the members at BBW esentially went down the toilet.</p>

    I'm out, I doubt this forum will become even 1/3 the forum BBW was. </p>

    I have to apologize.</p>

    I've been focused on making the site run fast, and it appears I have succeeded.</p>

    I totally appreciate where you guys are coming from. It's certainly a shock how the site was moved and sold out from under you guys. We're being as truthful and honest about the situation as we can, though.</p>

    Now that the site is running fast, you should be able to check out much of the site and its features in a reasonable (fast) manner. </p>

    Our intent certainly isn't to destroy your community or to piss people off or any of the kinds of reactions I'm seeing in this thread and at least one other.</p>

    Why, exactly, is it that you want to move to some other site that's still not bbw?</p>

    </p>

    Combs didn't say a damn thing about this, not even to Tony, who actually built the site himself. Combs is a loser. He just made a big profit (I heard he made 20 G's) off of everybody else's work. All the work Tony put in, all the posts by our loyal members, and the homepage... he didn't do anything until members complained. Everything on that homepage is me (not trying to brag, but telling the truth). He never responded to members' PM's, he was always late with updates (especially on the homepage).</p>

    The plus to this is that Combs isn't running it anymore. The minus is that everybody is leaving, so this change meant absolutely nothing because you lost all of BBW's core members. We're all joining Tony's other forum. IM me at Chapsketball32 if anybody wants to talk.</p>

    Bye.</p>

    Respectfully, that goes both ways. You guys should listen to what we're saying too. There are things that can be improved, sure, but we need input about who should be contributing and what should be done.</p>

    You can take the members out of the forum, but you can't take the forum out of the members. </p>

    </div></p>

    No, I completely hear that. Most of us spent several years building up another site, and once it was sold we watched the new owners take things in a very different direction than we would have taken. We understand that very well, and that's exactly why we're asking for your help and input.</p>

    Obviously you're right. S2 isn't BBW, and it's never going to be exactly the same. I'm not going to BS anyone and say that. But you're also right when you say the members and their contributions are what makes a forum tick. From the getgo, we've been trying to develop S2 as a place that'll be fun to post at and let people have a great sense of community, if people are just willing to give it a shot. </p>

    Ok if you want feedback, Ill give you some.</p>

    This forum blows. Overall the setup of the forum is terrible and you no longer have an off topic section, which sucks.</p>

    Well BBW was good while it lasted, if anyone has a good forum that they would like me to join please send me an email to mattbern1989@yahoo.com</p>

    PEACE!</p>

    If the owners of this forum bring back the old BBW...that would save everything. You can own it all you want...make all the money off of it that you want...as long as we get the old bbw back.
