Official Recognition

Post by up7587 on Fri Sep 11, 2009 8:48 am

I got my Pilot E-news from Tricia Miller this morning, and I noticed that under the heading "Follow the Pilots All Seaon Long" they listed Fan Forum: www.pilotnation.net! Congrats to our founders. From plucky rebels to part of the empire!

Is this the first time the U has promoted the website, or just the first time I noticed?

I think that this is a credit to the posters as well. Many of you bring great insights and perspectives. I think the University is recognizing the quality of the posts and the respect shown to the other posters. So a big thanks also goes to everyone who posts on here and keeps it clean. If this was all trash-talk and insults I'm sure the university would not have given it any recognition. Great job by the moderators too (no, not you DTR, you have not been one long enough).

So much for the "respect shown to the other posters." Rolling Eyes

Honestly though, this is a very welcoming place to talk Pilot athletics. I totally agree with Matty.

He drew first blood. It really required an unfounded and unjustified response.

Is this the first time the U has promoted the website, or just the first time I noticed?

We were actually mentioned last year, too. Pretty amazing considering the last couple of posts.

We are always looking for ways to promote the site... and would love suggestions! (The t-shirts are coming along, slowly but surely...)

Anyone volunteering to parachute onto Merlo Field with the game ball and a big Pilot Nation banner? Very Happy

If you've got the money, I've got the time.

I am glad the site received recognition. Now there will be more lurkers, and hopefully posters. Welcome all you lurkers, and feel free to post. If somebody jumps on you with your first few posts(Even if you cheer for Conference Powerhouse GU as long as Its not an "insult" or derogatory,inflamatory coment of Pilot Basketball I can guarantee the "Unofficial" founder of the "Unofficial" Portland Pilots Message board "Welcome Wagon" will probably express his opinion despite the consternation of many of our more civil posters.(2nd longest sentence,sorry+

I want to complement some of the folks who make this board possible, PilotNut,Rob's Jacket,and Sci-Fi. I would like to give you some history on how these three have worked together,and their backgrounds but I don't think thats necessary(or my place without their permission) and also DaRochin for stepping up and helping out.. It is nice to have these three put in countless hours on a "volunteer" board. I don't know if your aware , but you can look in the upper left hand corner of the front page and reach other WCC universitys "unofficial" web sites. One reason I bring this up this site has as has been told to me this site is volunteer administered,where and does not have to sell adds to mantain it's excistance . if you enjoy it feel free to donate to it,I bet even 5 dollars will help. Enough for my soapbox public announcement. I just feel these guys are probably just too humble to accept some of the credit.As in All message boards I've participated in there are difference's in opinions, some times feelings get hurt, or post's are misconstrued(sp) and taken in different context than which the poster really means. I personally want to thank these folks for tolerating some of these post's and this is a higher level board which some decorum is mantained thank to them.

At this time I want to public apoligize(sp) if any of the posters took offense to a "slang" verbage I wrote last week. Sometimes I forget that I am not just Posting semi-private messages to long time posters like Geez,Stoney,DaRoachin PilotNot,PPT,UP7587, Athletic James,Matty Whiss(lol sp,sorry), student posters,onr can tell by their age who they are etc (I know I forgot many of you and thanks for your insight and wisdom shared), others are reading them and may take them as "out of line" and a racist(error in Judgement on my part),sexist and offending post.WORLDS LONGEST SENTENCE,HMM . As my apology in the future with my posts I will attempt to restrain myself and keep my enthusiam toward the the mens program, players that our on the the current squad to a dull roar.Thank you for your patience and understanding for my "error's in judgement" and perceived errors in judgement. I never intended too post much when this board began but I feel so comfortable , and welcomed that some of my personal connections to the team are no longer a barrier to me.I ENCOURAGE YOU TO POST,LURK,ETC...because despite what I think of my "massive" knowledge (sic) I think I have for the team and the game of Basketball I 'learn" much knowledge and history of the Pilot BB Team. Sorry for my personal bio,but every message board usually has one person who "say's too much" and has "diareaha of the mouth" and I guess that is me. It is not intended in any narcistic, egomaniacal way. Once again, Beating a Dead Horse I am truely sorry if I have "offended" or hurt of any of you regulars on the board in the past. Rolling Eyes Whether that be recent or before that. I want to say "Congrat's" to one classy, top-notched board again



Sincerely,


MesaPilot1 sunny[i][u]
