It’s time for everyone to step down in my estimation. This board has become trash, my contributions duly noted. The death of this board is upon us. Message boards in general are dying off. Get a Twitter account folks. Time marches on.  

This thread is awesome imo. I do Twitter also.

It can be awesome. Used to be. I love Atlanta sports so I’m thankful for this place, but the decline is real. Make no mistake. Twitter, Reddit, Insta, Snap, places like that are drawing folks away. This place is for dinosaurs like myself and we’re getting old lol.

What’s the difference in what Twitter can offer vs what this place offers

Popularity, I would rather cut my arm off and beat myself to death with it over using Twitter and Facebook for anything sports related though.

Just too much cancer.

Twitter sucks. And there’s way better football content here than ESPN. There’s dumb stuff in the off-season sure. But this is a great board. Not sure what you’re talking about.

I disagree with this. This board is like it’s always been. The only difference is the mods have vanished. And THAT is why it’s been awful as of late. It’s  not because of social media. Make no mistake, this place will be full of people again when the preseason starts

When I joined this board in 2004 it was way more active than it is now, even in the offseason. I'll come here and for a week straight the same topics are on the front page.

I agree. Social media is so terrible when it comes to talking about sports.

If you don't wanna go beyond a pre k level of understanding of sports, ESPN is your place to be...:lol:  Think now.  Stephen A Smith is a  millionaire off of talking about NOTHING.  The NBA coverage is " house wives of Atlanta".  Pure gossip trash.

What's that? Mods stepping down? Just Mono in that timespan.

idk thought I heard a couple others had as well especially since I've not seen a certain one who isn't very good at his job anyhow.

Its almost like these forums are a sounding board where topics can thoroughly vetted.  Thats why i like different viewpoints..id be nice to be able to express those viewpoints without trashing each other..

Let's just stop letting stuff get personal and get back to talking sports. This place use to be an awesome board. Lets find a few mods that have more time to monitor things and get this place back to what it use to be. Thanks for your many years Monoxide.

Mono was and always has been a very fair and reasonable mod. This place will miss him. I'm rarely on here any longer. One of the main reasons is Twitter. I have found a ton of fellow Falcons fans on there, and the interaction I've had with them all has been very good. I enjoy it, but I certainly get why it isn't for everyone.

You know, that's a great question. For me, it's probably the brevity. Because of the character limit, people need to get their opinions and/or points across rather quickly.

I enjoy that part of it a lot.

do you think there should be a character limit here?  or is that too constricting and that forums are just verbose in nature?
