OT: How did you find the Planet
 
Ok, this is really more of an off-season thread, and one we've touched on before (I think), but just curious. How did you end up a planeteer. I'd even be interested in hearing from some of our non-residents from the Cowboys on how you found us.

For me, I was recruited by the Pookster in early 03 (a co-worker at the time), though I ended up lurking for nearly a year before registering.

P4E 10-10-2007 10:45 AM

Looking up Tom Brady photos and there was one that Patriotsplanet had done of him,so i checked out the site, and the rest is history

Annihilus 10-10-2007 10:46 AM

Found an obscure reference to it on the old Patriots.com boards back when they really, really sucked (Oct 2003). Can't remember who it was, but they mentioned the place. Annihilus came over here and one of the first posts that Annihilus saw was something Hawg posted. First post was in the Karma Thread in November of the same year.

Of course it was all downhill from there.

Alk 10-10-2007 10:47 AM

I was doing a search on google for leather assless chaps and bingo!! I wasn't even a Patriots fan then but I figured I would fit in just fine.

FU TOM 10-10-2007 10:50 AM

Funny, I was thinking of this last week and I have no firm recollection - for some reason I think it may have been mentioned in a Nick Cafardo mailbag back when he was covering the Pats. :shrug:

I know I was initially "drawn" to the Girlie Pic thread, and then, after lurking for well over a year, started to post...

FromDallas 10-10-2007 10:53 AM

Starting in week 2 whoever the Cowboys were playing, I've been going to a message board and posting the entire week (and the day after). I just went to Yahoo and typed in New England Patriots Forum and this was the first one on the list.

Some boards have sucked (not many posters) but this one is pretty good. The Bills have a good one too called Two Bills Drive.

bishbash 10-10-2007 10:54 AM

Once was a regular at the Globe's Pat board at boston.com. I got fed up with the utter lack of moderation as a particular Colt troll bombarded the board with his multiple personalities (still does). He'd be Assclowned in about 5 minutes here. (Dashoe, is it you?)

I sought out a new home and found patsfans.com. (Patriots.com is still too awkward of a website and seems to wallow too much in just "smack talk"). At one point, about a year ago patsfans started having all kinds of board/server problems and there was a kind invitation sent out by the good folks here for a place of refuge. Been here ever since. Thanks folks!

freak 10-10-2007 10:55 AM

I forget......

I saw it mentioned either on Patriots.com or KFFL. I was a regular at the latter, but had become less so at the former.

I'd used to be a regular at both, and KFFL's predecessor MouthOff Sports, going WAAAY back.

I used to pimp the Planet at KFFL and occasionally Patsfans/Rivals2/Rivals1/ NFLfans (again....I go WAAAY back), and I know a few people came here as a result.

cka203 10-10-2007 10:56 AM

I saw references to this place over at IndyStar, and one day decided to check it out. IndyStar was never a good place for posting, and even colts.com kinda bored me, so when I found this place, it was very different from what I was used to!

I lurked for a loooong time, got the feel of the place and it's posters, and finally one day decided since I visited here every day, may as well sign up!

If someone had told me years ago my internet home would be a Patriots message board, I would've laughed in their face!

But hey... this place and it's posters kinda grow on you....

you know, like a fungus...

:p

cadmonkey 10-10-2007 11:01 AM

I was a member over at Chiefsplanet, and someone over there told me to take my patriots sh*t over here.

okhrana 10-10-2007 11:02 AM

I was a regular poster at patriots.com but then one day mgoblue mentioned something about the Patriots Planet being back up and they were going to go over there instead. So I knew the name, then one day, after the second super bowl I did a web search and found it. Joined up later, forgot my password, found it again, but I am not a Planeteer, at least not until I get post #'s in triple digits.

bideau 10-10-2007 11:02 AM

Found it in November, '02. I was a lurker at the official Pats board, rarely posting there. Saw an announcement that the Planet had just gone online. Checked it out, liked it and started posting. You haven't been able to get rid of me since them.

Costanza 10-10-2007 11:03 AM

Well, when big ol' Lolo Mankins #70 was drafted I had to find out everything about this here team that my high school buddy went to. This is how I found Patriots Planet. Actually I found Kffl first, but they are nazis so I came here after I found a link talking about one of the threads.

^^Taken from the bandwagon thread I just wrote in. Kffl and Patfans.com were both so uptight, they'd chastize someone for forgetting to put a OT in front of something non-Pats related. A lot more fun here! Plus over there I was "some girl that said she knew the new rookie posting threads". They weren't very welcoming, very "we are cool and the newbies suck" kinda attitude. So yeah, lovin' me some Planet!:thumb:

Major A$$hole* 10-10-2007 11:03 AM

I don't recall. Probably saw it refferenced @ KFFL or Patsfans. lurked for a while. I have no idea what made me register and post though. I haven't posted at KFFL in years now. Heck I don't even lurk there anymore. I mostly lurk @ patsfans. I chime in every now and then.

You registered in 2005? eeek eeek Wow. You are a post whore.

I was googling "ATM" and wham-o. Here I am

Darth Despot 10-10-2007 11:07 AM

I was a semi-regular at Patriots.com chat room and an occasional poster at UK Patriots.com. I clicked a link to the Tedy Bruschi best wishes thread as posted at UK after his stroke. While perusing the site I noticed Hawg was a mod and I "knew" him from Patriots.com. I lurked for a couple of weeks to get a feel for the place, liked what I read and jumped in.

You still talk to Logan?

As you can imagine he is a busy man! I talk to his ol' lady and brother in law. We're trying to make it out there next Christmas for a home game for a visit:thumb: .

Direct him to the board. He seems the type that would fit right in here.

He's not really the type that is into technology. He might have a cell phone. He is a silly fun lovin' guy, but I can imagine fatherhood has calmed him down. We's just country folks, ya know?!

LOL. Yeah. I think you filled your posting quota till draft time.

desi-patsfan* 10-10-2007 11:17 AM

Patsfans.com crashed so i searched for Pats message board on Google and got here.

mikiemo83 10-10-2007 11:17 AM

an Eagles fan told me to leave some eagles board, this was after I got kicked off some other teams board and I had no where else to go, I was looking around at lunch time one day and found this place so I signed up and posted..... it felt good so I did it again and again and again.... I think at the rate I post I should be blind by mid march 2008 and my hands look like a werewolf

LOL. Come on. Anyone working for the pats has to be some hacking/stealing/cheating genius. Don't the pats screen their draftees to see who can use a camera and a hidden mic and who cant/

SamBam39 10-10-2007 11:19 AM

I think I first heard of PP either on the Patriots.com or KFFL. I was probably one of those people that heard about it from freak as I remember him from Patriots.com. I registered right away and then kind of drifted back and forth between this board and KFFL. But this is where I like to spend my time. This board has without question the greatest group of diverse fans and characters I have seen. It really is a fun place to be.

Major A$$hole* 10-10-2007 11:21 AM

I can't wait to find out how Dirty Old RG found this place. I Haven't seen him aound here lattely. Did he get himself a fembot?

sonsofkraftybob 10-10-2007 11:21 AM

I think Shasta or DW told me about it.

I was strictly an ambassador of patriot nation on opposing boards until i retired after securing the Title of "Smackmaster" on Colts.com.

Then I came here to live out the sunset of my internet existance.

WisColtFan7 10-10-2007 11:22 AM

I was recruited from colts.com by SOKB, liked what I saw here, generally behaved myself, and eventually became welcome. :D

He's been in and out. Seems to come and go in spurts.

Oh... you were asking about his POSTING...

P4E 10-10-2007 11:26 AM

It's weird i actually dont think of CKA,ICB And jaric and the rest of the colts as actually colt fans because of the way they have just fiited in

HarpoonIPA 10-10-2007 11:32 AM

I subscribe to Patriots news through Google’s e-mail service and one day this board came up. So I checked it out about 14 months ago lurked for about a year and then decided to join because it reminded me of a local pub atmosphere that I longed for, now IM addicted and can’t look away… There is only one other board I belong to and that’s dbstalk.com for Directv issues and new programming.

Thanks
Rich

patsfanroach 10-10-2007 11:37 AM

OK so here is my story:

I was tyng to find a Logan Mankins jersey. (Yes Jh, your Logan). I googled "where do I find a Logan Mankins jersey". One of the options was my question word for word. It took me the the thread about Which Patriots jersies do you have? I have waaaaaay too many so I had to post my list. So I registered, lurked for like 12 seconds, found the thread and posted. Now here I am 1000 posts later still rambling on about the best team in all of sports.

Thanks to all of you for accepting me here and actually reading a few of my posts. I have already met Mr and Mrspats forever at Foxboro (Sorry I missed you Mikiemo-maybe for the Stillers game in December?). But anyways it has been a fun few months and I look forward to posting 1000's more meaningless banterisms (is that a word?).

Whoo hoo go Pats, beat those Cowpokes!

I was over at Bengalszone when you guys were playing them, got into it a bit with SOKB, and he was so impressed with my awesome argument skills that he invited me here.

So you all can blame SOKB for that. :D

How did you end up a planeteer.
The memory is pretty hazy, but it starts out with me walking to my car across a dark, semi-deserted parking lot one night.

I remember hearing some hushed whispering as I approached my car, then as I was opening the door, something hit me from behind & everything went dark.

I don't remember much between that and 2 weeks later... I'm pretty sure I had been in a basement somewhere.... and I think there was something involving a pirate, a goat & a trampoline... but I'm not sure.

Anyhow, when I regained awareness I was back at my home computer desk and The Planet was displayed on my screen & saved to my bookmarks.

and.. well... I've been here ever since.



Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night with "it puts the lotion on it's skin" echoing through my mind. And since then I've had this thing for clowns that my therapist can't explain.

Yeah, and there was a post-it note on the monitor warning you of punishment if you ever told the story. Errr. not that I KNOW that or anything, that's just a guess. I wouldn't know anything about it.

I liked you better when you were Lithuanian instead of the Major A$$hole you are now :eek:

I originally lurked and then joined PatsFans back in '04 to learn more about the Xs & Os of football and saw a link posted about the Planet in a thread and decided to check it out

IIRC the very 1st thread title I saw here was "What Are You Having For Lunch Today?" and I knew I was in trouble :shake:

add in crazy-assed, potty-mouthed trash-talking woman members that know more football than I could ever dream of, my original entre into the murky world that is Goth-dom, those wacky Sex Poles and last-but-by-no-means-least my into to RealDolls.....I knew I found the football forum of my dreams :thumb: :thumb:

where else can you tell lies that people will think are the truth and truth that people will definitely think are lies and everybody wanders around baffled by the bullshit? :archive:

i did basically the same, except i think i just searched Patriots Forum. I got this site and a forum called patfan or something. I lurked on both for a few months and then decided this one was better and signed up... I never looked back.

Brownfan80 10-10-2007 01:14 PM

Patsfans died for a while. The refugees came over (prior knowledge from the Great ESPN Poll-Cheaterbot Wars) and the rest is history... unluckily for all of you! Bwahahaha.

Thank you for this thread. It is invaluable in learning where to concentrate efforts to lure in new victims, I mean members. It took a long time to get us at or near the top of the search engines, and it looks like only about half of members find us that way, while the other half are word of mouth.

It's much more crowded, less humor, more strict policies, and more trolls. But there is more football talk there, but I get all I need here from Box_O_Rocks (another Patsfan alum), Oswlek (another Patsfan alum), AWTE and those guys each game.

When I first started posting on another Patriots site, I heard about this site. I was a virgin to message boards back then and thought I had to be a very serious football guy.

I registered and was greeted by a couple of people who scared the shit out of me. I tried to get my email address deleted but it didn't work.

Then my normal Patriots site crashed last year. By that time I had become a message board crack whore instead of the lily white virgin that I once was. None of these guys scared me anymore, probably the opposite is true. So now I share time between the two very different and non-competitive sites (IMO).

It's too bad that a few people both here and there don't "get it", the differences and accept it. They would have a lot more fun if they did.

I had just joined the patriots.com message board and my main man Hawg73 tempted me over here with the girly pic thread... Thanks again, Hawg... I owe you.

this is true, there is no competition between the two and both talk football/patriots


but I do spend most my time in the ladies lounge voting with my heart over at the other place

I'm not really here. You just think I am.


If I was really here, though, you could probably blame Krafty. I followed a link to one of his 5 threads praising the Colts (he lost a bet from last year's regular season game).

cka203 10-10-2007 02:05 PM

Notice how Krafty's name keeps popping up?

He's also one of the reasons I came here. I read his posts on IndyStar and colts.com, and knew he was a troll-master. Funny guy, too!

There were/are also some other Planet members who I read on the colts forums, and I was intrigued enough to come here and check out the rest of you looneys.

:D

Resistance is futile. Assimilation is inevitable.

I fell in love with some Planeteers that posted regularly on colts.com (SOKB, JJ) and eventually wandered over to see what all the fuss was about. Cka is right, colts.com is a little boring and the Planet just sucked me in. People never believe me when I tell them my "home" message board is a Pats board.

Actually, the Planet probably owes thanks to Krafty for all of the good resident Colts fans. :shrug:

I was a long-time poster on the AOL board, since the early 90s. While there, I met some strange guy with the screen name "DannyPires". About two years ago AOL did away with it's board monitors and the posting boards turned into a giant playpen, so I decided to leave. DP pointed me this way, and I also joined up with patsfans.com at the same time; after observing both boards, I settled in at this one because it seemed more intimate (as in, fewer people, not sexually... that part came later, LOL) and a bit weirder (which suits me).

My first visit to a :Pat: fan MB was @ the MB at their official site. Too young for me. I googled and discovered PatsFans. "This has to be a great site...they have weekly posts from Steve Grogan!" I thought.

Lotsa in-depth football knowledge can be found there, but the MB itself was (is) too "collar-up" for my tastes. That being said, what really turned me off from that site, was the fact that they would partially or fully ban someone that went by the nick of NEM and allow him to return. Time after time after time after.....

Good info, crappy Mods.

So I did another google and clicked the link to Patriots Planet. As soon as I read all the posts in that first day, I knew I had found my home.

Still, I lurked here for the whole 2004 season, before I finally registered in Feb of 2005. I wanted to know which of the regulars I could frig with that would take it as fun and who I couldn't.

I read the classics forum (I forget what it was called back then, but it's now the appropriately named Oedipus Tex Classic Thread Forum now) to gain further insight on the regulars and visitors.

OMG I've only been a registered member for less than 3 years and yet it seems like I've been here for much longer.

Thankee and Kudos to :bow: Falling Alice, those at Chiefs Planet and anyone else that were behind getting this site going and keeping it going. Thankee to the 25 (or is it 28? :shrug: ) Mods that have allowed a very relaxed attitude to exist here while keeping the assclowns at bay.

And I give a very big special thankee to each and every person that has ever posted here. If it weren't for all of you, this board would not be what it is today.

And that ain't :noshit:

#1Patsfan_chica 10-10-2007 06:03 PM

I used to post on Patriots.com but that place was too boring. So I did a search and the Planet was the first thing to pop up and I have enjoyed my time here.

So im driving across the big island in my borrowed Ferrari, on a errand for that overbearing Higgins, when suddenly i see what appears to be a roadside accident. I get out, shirtless, to lend my Navy Seal trained assistance, when a guy pops out of the bushes with a gun and tells me to give him the money or else. I tell him i forgot my wallet back at Robin Masters estate, and he tells me to "Quit stalling, Louis Berrinton, or I'm gonna kill your kid"

Louis Berrinton? My old Navy buddy? He has a kid?

I play along, since i dont want to get the kid killed. I tell him that i will get him the money. Tonight. I hop back in my borrowed Ferrari and hot foot it back to the Estate.

Higgins is hosting a wine tasting contest as i screech into the driveway. He shouts my name as i jog, shirtless, into my bungalow. Lucky Rick and TC are hanging out to watch the big fight tonight. Higgins bursts in and starts blathering about ruining his wine tasting, until i tell him the story.

Higgins then tells us a story about the time he was in Africa, leading a raid against a German tank position in WWII, which tangentally and vaguely applies to our dilema. We hatch a plan so daring, it just might work. Rick and Higgins do the frontal assault, im in the backdoor. Rick and Higgins get captured, and tied up with my old Navy buddy, his kid, his wife, and her grandmother.

I then swoop in from my rear position and get the drop on the bad guys, dropping one guy with a blow to the solar plexus.

The cops arrive and TC is outside witht he brown and rainbow helicoptor to get everyone back to the kids piano recital, which she was almost going to miss if she didnt get rescued by the homicidal kidnappers at just that very second.

So then, on the way out the door, just before the closing credits, one of the cops leans over to me and whispers, "You ever been to PatriotsPlanet.com? Awesome awesome place. Really"


True story. I swear.

Okay, I'm buying the borrowed car, and something about the backdoor action just seems to ring true, especially as the only babe action in this tale is your buddies trussed up wife, but rescuing the kid just in time for the piano recital? That sounds more like something Annihilus would do for a kid he wanted to torment, it doesn't read like your story at all. :shake:

Ok it might have bene that time that we were all holed up in that barn, and B.A . made a tank out of a tractor, some sheet metal and some PVC pipe. That crazy ass Murdock was running all around singing Ride of the Valkyries, and just when that gang was about to surround us, Face showed up in a real tank he had "appropriated" from the local army base.

I love it when a plan comes together.

Hawg73 10-11-2007 08:09 AM

I didn't even have an internet hookup until the late 90's and I started posting over at the old message board at Patriots.com. I was just a typical nervous newbie who was intrigued at the fact that I could interact with people who were just as much as an addicted Pats fan as I was and I tried to fit in as best I could.

I'm not sure if it is some kind of hubris on my part or just a creative outlet, but it wasn't long before I started posting long pieces, sometimes fictional that I had fun with and I was surprised at the positive feedback that some of them got. I had a chance to talk about Patriots-related (and other) stuff that had been roiling in my system since I was a little kid.

If I did a post that I was proud of and it got a lot of response I honestly got a little giddy about it. One of the first responses I got was somebody asking me "are you some kind of writer or something?" and that was flattering and a little thrilling to think that I could get a reaction like that. I was just a regular schlub that liked words and liked applying them to one of my favorite pastimes-- football.

Of course, with the ups came some downs and I got blasted once in a while and that used to really bug me. To be truthful, it hurt my feelings. I was an internet virgin and I needed to get my cherry busted just like everyone else with the realization that some folks are simply critical assholes and you can't worry about what people say-- you just have to be yourself whatever that is, but at that point I was still.......let's say on the sensitive side. I have rhino hide now, but people could get under my skin back then.

Then came a major shitstorm in the form of a particularly foul and talented Raiders troll that turned that entire board inside out and some posters, ones that I really liked, just dropped out of sight never to be heard from again. I mean this guy wreaked havoc and we didn't have any way to control it. It was total frustration and Fred Kirsch (ran the board at that time) didn't seem terribly interested. It mattered to us more than it did to him.

It pissed me off royally that one ingenious idiot could chase so many nice folks away.

There were a lot of problems with that board beyond the trolls, but in retrospect -- that's what finally did it.

I can't remember that Raider dude's handle and while I wanted to strangle him at the time, I now credit him with being the ultimate motivating factor that got FallingAlice in touch with the Chiefsplanet people and several months later the planet was born. Curious types that would like to read more details of that time can click

here.

Anyways, the intial question was: how did I find the planet?

The simple answer is I found it because Alice invited me here way back in November of 2002.

A more convoluted one would be that I've really been here since 1964 but it took a while for the details to get worked out.

I've been around - reading and lurking rather than posting. Everything's fine, I have just been very busy is all.

patsfanroach 10-11-2007 10:17 AM

Glad to hear things are all good. I had noticed a lack of yours and the Mrs' posting too...didn't want you to think P4E was the only one noticing....lol.
