It looks like there's a heck of a lot more traffic, and I have PM's and copies of PM's that confuse me.<br><br>
What's been happening.<br><br>
I'll be back to normal life over the weekend, so bear with me. No pun intended.

The SHORT Version: We got more free advertising at coolrunning. Their thread went to 12 pages before it got deleted...<br><br>
That sent a lot more of new users here.<br><br>
Regarding RippleRun - I tried to do your job and screwed it up and that caused a lil' more work than needed.. I apologized to her for jumping the gun and we had a hug fest....<br><br>
Pretty much it...<br><br>

Free advertising, as in "it's better over there, come on over?" or as in "there's a bunch of doofuses over there who can't stand the heat?"

To summarize the thread over at CH: all the usual stuff with the added element that a the reason people got really upset about anyone leaving is that this time Torque and Griz disappeared.<br><br>
Good to know you're missed, eh?

It started with <a href="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5108" target="_blank">this thread here,</a> along with a concurrent (now deleted) thread over in the CH regarding "why was there a mass exodus to Kick?"<br><br>
The usual antagonism and banter ensued, with great explanations on why people left. The best conclusion I read was that the "CH needs a thread about how great the CH is every day or so..."<br><br>
I wish the CH thread was still around for you to see. Both mageline and Maven made appearances. But the disappearing thread act happened again.<br><br>
Yes, great to know Grizzly is missed.

Does it matter?<br><img alt="surprised.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/surprised.gif">ccasion5:<br><br>
You guys have done such a GREAT JOB setting the tone here, that all they have to do is include a link to the site and the site sells itself.....<br><br>
I created the site and domain - but YOU GUYS created the family and atmosphere...<br><img alt="notworthy.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/notworthy.gif"><img alt="notworthy.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/notworthy.gif"><img alt="notworthy.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/notworthy.gif">

Maybe we can ask all the controversial people in the CH to please link to the front page with advertising for the next iteration of the quarterly "Why did they leave" thread. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

Well, after wading through PM and emails it is clear that:<br><br>
1) I led some sort of exodus to this place. (what, in 2005 when I was a latecomer?)<br><br>
2) I somehow hurt Mags feelings. How? Something about some email message.<br><br>
3) I have to talk some sense into Brian and not be a follower. Huh?<br><br>
I wish I could say to them: "Go away all of you and leave me alone!" I don't think that this place was ever marketed as an alternative to the CH. I never left in a huff to come running to this place. I just left. Never looked back, never will.<br><br>
I left and didn't anticipate the flood of people who invaded and have made this a whole new and different world.<br><br>
One thing I will do is try to head off any of the "we're better than you" if I see it. I hated that when Riff Raff started and I don't think that you build a great site by stepping on another.<br><br>
Thanks all for the update!
