    Yeah, that's true. I have psychologists appointment next month. I asked my wife if I should bring all the voices with me when I go. She just shook her head.

    I will say what kept me around a certain other board for a long time was the heavy B/S/T activity.

    I can keep it promoted. I'm not a very good writer. I have tried in the past but it never holds up.
    Its not entirely on you to have content worth reading but there are other boards that attract collectors and sadly this place is no longer at the top of many "must see" lists anymore. This place has been up and running nearly 10 years now and early on it was the place to be but sadly many were run off by the asshats who felt it was their place to police grammar, spelling and any number of other issues. I would love to see FCB return to it's previous glory but sadly, others have taken it's place. I may be the lone voice in the wilderness when I say that FCB's time has come and gone and it will always now be "that place I used to go to allot". When the front page of the most popular board on this web site still has posts from two days previous, it is obvious to anyone who drops in for a visit that there is not much going on here and certainly not much to read.

    I Know I may be stepping on toes when I say this but FCB is a great little coffee shop to hang out in and see some old friends but it will never be a Starbucks.

    I appreciate what you are saying.

    What you are saying has merit.

    I just don't like it.

    I Am glad you took it in the spirit it was meant. I dont like it either as this board has always been a great place to come to and I hope it does return to it's former glory. I am more than willing to help in any way I can. I have not written anything in the last year or two as I returned to school and work a 60 hour a week job which has left little time for anything else but I will do my best to add some content going forward.

    We should have more "eBay buyer to block" threads, those are ALWAYS great.

    I'll say this, FCB obviously doesn't have the traffic BO does, but I think it's much better people (excluding myself, D2R and all Jake Peavy collectors) and FAR less drama. I would like to see more new people but I like quality over quantity.

    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    I dont disagree with you. I rarely, if ever go to BO as that place is generally a cesspool of craziness and at my age I dont need that! With the exception of Net54 I think places like Facebook groups and other such places have taken over where message boards used to be. The Net54 guys are just too old and cranky to join social media!

    This thread's title made me think Chris wanted us all to speak to a shrink.

    Which isn't a bad idea, mind you.
