I'm still here. Never been a huge talker, but I've been coming since about 2006, I think.

Been with DS since 1999, really just started posting regularly in the past few years. I do miss some of the "old timers" that have moved on. Hopefully these boards will get back to how they used to be when I first joined- lots of participation from a lot of members, vigorous discussions, great advice.

I don't know how long I have been with DS, but I think it was pretty close to when they first started. Jared - can you look that up? The "joined" date in my profile was when I first posted to the boards. I think I went on a rant about how much better Cedric Benson was than people were giving him credit for. :oops:

These days I post when I think I have something to add (whether I really do or not :D ).

Maybe I can hit the 5,000 mark this year.

I'm in on the chat room too, though I think we need a new one as last year's is no longer valid. That said I'm at Disney World right now so I probably won't be on much this morning. Next week for sure.

Someone shoot me an email if a new chat room gets set up. Jkseger@yahoo.com

Been around since 2001 or 2002 myself. I used to have a different handle..."Dead Money" that was a Great White also, but sometime between the 2005 and 2006 season something happened with my handle and I had to start all over as "Damn Yankee". I think John Miller had something to do with it. I probably didn't stroke his ego enough one day and he deleted me.

Greek Lightning, HawkeyeGirl, Rickyg25, homer, sproles, Mag900, mcghee3, lobster, Hobbes4166, Simakos, Steel, maddog, BabaORiley....hell, even that A'Hole Casinator LOL. Miss those guys...they and many others made the board great. DS John (Miller) ran a lot of them off when he ran the board like a communist.

I've been around for 10 years or so myself, but unfortunately, my advice hasn't improved at all over all these years. (Had to re-do my profile due to log-in issues)
My post count says I'm a rookie, but I've been giving bad advice here for years!

I'm around as well, but I feel like the forums are becoming outmoded by new forms like Twitter, so I tend to spend time there reading stuff from across the industry. I don't spend time with Start/Sit advice because there's already a ton of good advice available. I save my $hit talking for my league mates in the DS Keeper league.

I guess I qualify.

:-)

But yes, a lot of people have moved on, unfortunately.

Look forward to the chat room though my attendance is definitely impacted by my daughters soccer and basketball schedule.
