1. Time to create a new sight and start the migration. 2. Would not be too difficult to start a new forum. WMITC 2.0


Heck, 1) it was and 2) it wasn't.

I think we can confirm at this point, "Stanley" was someone from TOS that probably crowd-funded the purchase of this site to effectively let it die a slow death.

Hell, even the images for the years old stories are no longer working.

TOS was a spinoff from this website. a few members decided to start their own after they were scorned for some reason i forget. to think they wanted this site to die several years after the 'great departure' is odd.

Well, an extremely regular soapbox-shitstirrer buying the site then disappearing forever with the only Admin powers is also "odd".

Yeah it really makes no sense. I'm thinking the guy found an untimely end and left no instructions for the management of the site post-Stanley.

At this point our only hope is that someone does a benevolent hack and takes over management - if that's even possible.

Photobucket recently got greedy and disabled hotlinking pics from their site without having a paid account. That means millions of pics all over the internet quit working this month unless the person pays or moves the pics to a new host.

I (and maybe EERCrazy on rare occasions)still engage in this site from time to time but mostly we're at the aforementioned "TOS" aka ****.com
I enjoy both sites but am predominately a member of TMN. Please believe me, NO one on TOS/TMN G-A-F about what happens here. It just isn't a blip on the radar anymore...I really did enjoy the old days and people here. I hope some new life gets pumped into this website, it really is a strange,slow decay.

EDIT: And still the butt-hurt is in place with the site that hordes of former WMITCers created and migrated to as it's name remains blocked. SMFH, explains a lot.

Trust me when I tell you I'd do something if there was anything I could do. I've lost count of the number of emails I've sent to Stanley with no rely.

I probably wouldn't have agreed to moderate this site if I had known Stanley was going to disappear forever. Even the test site he gave us to try things no longer works.

What is "TOS" and "TMN" if I might ask?

I've been on here a while and regularly check in, but I hate to see this place slowly phasing out. I've heard mention of this "other" site too, but not sure what it is, I'd like to join if WMITC's members have migrated there.

Google, The Mountaineer Nation Index Page. It was created early in 2009 by former members here. There was some issues with trolls and former owners not standing up for members plus never proved but denied yet often suspected they were reading personal messages on the this site. Lots of threads on TMN encompassing a wide range of topics.
C'mon over and sign up, you can belong to both sites, we're all Mountaineers after all.
Conservative right-wing enthusiasts preferred! J/K!! Libs and Consv have a good time going at it but the Mtnr sports is the heart of it.Tell them Tito sent you..

Not surprised you didn't recognize them. That was Maadman and Jude. Was there a little Korean slinking down in their car?

This is the only Mountaineer board I have ever been on, but I just signed up for TMN. I don't live in Bama anymore so I changed my username there. I wish I could change my username here.

I think in maybe a year's time I'll be the only person here typing in all caps about how bad the refs are.

TMN seems kind of dated. To me the best one is Scout's forum. Easiest to read and usually has latest news.

What's that saying about glass houses? I know no one here has control over it, but everything about WMITC (even the name) is VERY dated. But yeah, Scout does have a nice setup.

There has been talk recently about a new layout, but honestly we dont care about it much. TMN layout is pretty much the same as it has always been, and its about the content more than the design. And to be fair, imo TMN layout is way better than this hot mess here haha.

My first post here in 8 years!

Re: Scout/BGN/etc... yea there are more people on those sites, and sure they are pretty.... but those are also cesspools, you get the absolute WORST of the fanbase there. I prefer posting with the good people I already know, tailgate with (we have had several site tailgates over the years), with good info coming from insiders that post.

Feel free to come on over and join us :) We have had 10+ users sign up from here just since Tito posted that yesterday.
