Hey everyone, we wanted to inform you about the most recent progress we've made with the site. Starting today, we will officially be known as the MetsRefugees, and if you type in/click on any of the following addresses you will be brought to the forum homepage:

So what exactly does this mean to me now?
- Right now it doesn't mean much, except that our homepage is an address that you might actually be able to remember off the top of your head and/or possibly tell a friend or twelve about.


Big deal, my little sister is 9 years old and has her own website.
- Patience padawan, this is merely step one in our multi-step plan for world domination. Next on the agenda is waiting (yes, waiting) for forumup.us to finish their Database backup feature, so we can move the board as a whole to a privately hosted site. Thankfully that function is in beta testing as we speak, so the move is coming sooner than later.


Why do you need to wait?
- Well we could start a new site on the same software tomorrow, but then we'd have to start from scratch. We'd all have to re-register and we'd lose all of our glorious threads and post counts. Losing

would be a true crime against humanity.


Why move at all?
- Essentially with a privately hosted site/forum the sky is the limit. All of a sudden tons of elements open up to us that we either had very limited or no control over in the past: Improved graphics, new features, expanded content, etc. etc.


And of course, Metsrefugees.com will always be free.

Thanks to everyone who has helped us become so successful as a community. We are reminded everyday just how popular we are becoming, and without you guys we'd be nowhere.

2007 is going to be a great year, in more ways than one.

Lets Go Mets!
Lets Go MetsRefugees!

Yup, but we've been meaning to do it for awhile now. Plus it was pretty cheap through GoDaddy.com

Yeah, we're going to have to pony up the cash too. Anyway, jmb is right. metsrefugees.com doesn't work but the others do.

It's too bad we couldn't have had this domain when jmb and JD made the shoutouts on the FAN. I'm sure there were at least 50 or so people who were saying to themselves, "who the [CENSORED] are the Refugees?" only to type in "metsrefugees.com" or something to that extent and have nothing show up.

Hopefully you'll do a better job at your site.

I'm not criticizing you, phunk. I was just simply stating a hypothetical case.

Good point RB...blurting out metsrefugees.com before you get dumped is a lot easier than blurting out mets.forumup.us before you get dumped. I'm sure that's why they're paying for the domain name now... Rolling Eyes

Hey no picking on RB for this. I got his point, and his intention was a sound one.

I don't. You did make a good point actually, but like most times, I felt like being an asshole. Right now when I have free time I'm usually working on my new board, so you'll probably be seeing less of me. But that's probably a good thing for you guys.

I don't think so, unless you take the guys like SalFromQueens with you.

Not true Dan. Although you are a Skanks fan, I like your opinions on the Mets and Rangers. You definetly are a good poster here


And RB, like I said before, you are losing all of your board cred Laughing

I've already seen Sal there, Hire. He is "RuthMantleGerighContanza" or something like that.

But I will drop in with a post once a day or two. And once the season comes around, I'll be here. Just need to get my site in order is all. And the blog that PHA shamelessly plugged here earlier...

And Eagles, thanks man.
