  • Welcome New Members | Introduce Yourself Here

    We have had a few sign up over the past few weeks. I thought maybe we could welcome them in this thread. Maybe get to know one another. I know on forums its hard to integrate as a new member when you dont have an official welcome forum. But i wanted this community to step up and welcome these fans of the Chargers. Id like to show them that we are alive and well here at TPB and still support this team despite them moving. Nothing better than this community of Bolt fans.

    We have been together for almost 15 years. Maybe more. We were once Thenflforum.com and moved to this new place a few years ago. Other than the official charger forum at one point we were the most active charger forum out there. Then we started losing games. lol

    Anyways welcome to the new members. And introduce yourselves to us. I think you will see we are a very supportive community. And a very knowledgable fanbase when it comes to the team and the sport we love.

    I dont accept hate for the team on this forum. And the former members that dont support the team anymore have been great and still behave. We had a couple days after the move with some drama and everyone is happy now. We all have our places here. We all respect one another. We still have a place for them to vent in the Legacy forum.

    Cheers to you all.

    Welcome, Been here going way back 15yrs thenflforum.com days my self. I am more of a low to moderate poster but heavy active reader on the board, we have all kinds here. Just want to say there are some really smart minds on this forum and it is like family in its unique way. You won't find a better Charger board. With the Chargers leaving San Diego and the Raiders coming to Las Vegas (my hometown) I considered jumping ship. But could not do it and will continue to root for the Chargers. The draft has re-energized some and helped pull us up from the darkness.

    To any new members I hoped you enjoyed the draft on the board and feel that is just a taste of what is to come. This is the place to be if your a Charger fan and Love football. Fleet is first class and goes above and beyond running this place. Welcome all!

      Welcome lads. Signed up on the original forum back in August of 2001. Thankfully Fleet took over and opened the PowderBlues.

      Can't wait to talk Charger talk with everyone.

      Cheers!

              Welcome brother. Its starting to pick up again here. You have any questions about technical stuff just ask me. We dont have all the little fluffy bells and whistles of that BT xenforo forum but i think most here cringe at all the notifications. lol I may end up upgrading to Vbulletin 5 one of these days. Then we would have all those little options. But its a completely different looking forum when and if we do that.

              Hope you stick around.

                Welcome!
                This place has some of the best football minds anywhere posting here.
                I am not one of them.

                I'm more of a drive by clown. I use sarcasm, but not as a weapon. What I lack in actual relevance to the ongoing discussions in various threads, I make up for by getting out quickly.
                Cheers!

                      I tried to buy that forum. But i guess i didnt offer enough. Ray said he would think about it next year. But i think im going to pass anyways. All Charger forums are dying. We will thrive. I stop in every now and then just to talk football. I think today was the first time i actually had the intention of saving some of you supporters. That forum seems pretty hater heavy.

                                Definitely hater heavy, and you'll have to keep an eye peeled for some of the more juvenile and butthurt haters trolling in here (Lance, I'm looking at you). Yet there was still a core of solid posters who I will PM an invitation to join The Powder Blues!

                                  It just wont happen here man. I have a quarantine. I put those who want to act like douchebags in a unique usergroup that completely removes their ability to post in any forum other than the Legacy Forum. Which is essentially our smack forum converted into a place where the haters can congregate and get it all off their chests. We dont do trolls here. If the owner of the forum you are on hates the Chargers i would expect it to be allowed. Because from what ive gathered by only a couple of our non supporters is that they want to attack those who still support the team. I can get downright mean if i have to as well. And i will always go to bat for my members. Especially if they are under attack for supporting the chargers. I got our backs brother.

                                  I will say this though. Those on this forum who no longer support the team respect the hell out of the community here. And have been amazing about taking the high road toward those who still support the Chargers. We have a couple that have left. We havea couple that are screaming on the inside because they want to attack so bad. But they dont because they know i wont tolerate it. One of them is one of your own from BT. 420 is harmless.

                                  Anyways cheers to those non supporters here who are taking the classy road by not trying to troll us up here in the main forum and draft forum.

                                  ETicket was always my favorite at D-Land. You could do anything with that.

                                  Glad you're here, ETicket!

                                    Bolts4lyfe, been here for a little while been slowly transition over here, long time Chargers die hard, will follow this team where ever they go, love talking draft, love making 53 man predictions and love talking about Fantasy football and talking about the games throughout the season. Good to see Eticket on here, he's a good dude, been over at Bolttalk for a while. Also want to say Thank you to Fleet for keeping a site alive, (even started to notice the .com site getting trolled with millennial like posters saying "It's my right as an individual to be upset, I will post how upset I am where I want" hahaha

                                    Cheers to all
