Question for WKU posters
With so many headings and posts regarding WKU on the CUSA Conference Talk section, why don't you guys ever post anything on the WKU section? I just went there to see what the latest was with your basketball news and no one has posted anything there since March.

I understand that your fans likely have another forum somewhere that they post on instead, but why not have it all under the conference's message board - CUSAbbs - for convenience, both for yourselves and for your conference mates?

You probably aren't alone in doing that, but I was honestly going to check the WKU section for your latest when I noticed that nothing much was there.

I think most of us have migrated from the Hilltopper Haven over to the WKUINSIDER on the Scout board. I dont know if anybody will ever use the CSNBBS board, probably more for privacy reasons

Privacy reasons?

In other words they are one of the few fan bases that refuses to let anyone associated with other schools post on their board. By now you all have figured out why.

You can on the scout board , just not on the haven. Having the main site here would make it to convenient for others to jump in , the same reason MT don't have a active board here

RE: Question for WKU posters
I understand what you have stated about keeping it exclusive to WKU fans by having that other fan forum. What doesn't make sense though is that many times topics that are solely about WKU are started by WKU fans on the CUSAbbs Conference forum where all conference fans can chime in on. That seems to defeat the purpose of the other forum as stated.

I enjoy having WKU in the conference and also enjoy reading your thoughts about what is going on with your teams. In many ways we are all in this together since we are conference mates. It is just a lot easier to find things about the other schools when they are just a click away instead of trying to remember what forum they are using instead.

Edit: I feel similarly about other schools fans that don't have updated fan input on their school's CUSAbbs forum. In some ways it seems like just another thing that the conference teams (schools/fans) can't get together on.

Many of our fans are not as social and stick to the main board only, I personally enjoy mixing things up here 05-stirthepot

Speaking just for me, I can't even remember the last time I went to UTSA's CSNbbs page (lol). I'm sure it's been almost 2 years by now. My main 3 sites for sports social networking are here, http://www.rowdytalk.com/forum.php, and Twitter.

After going through the list of schools using the drop down menu above it appears that Old Dominion and Southern Mississippi are the only two groups of fans that use CUSAbbs as their main fan forum. Wish things were more centralized, but I understand. Guess it is kind of like having a comfortable pair of old shoes that you have enjoyed for years. It's hard to get rid of them and break in a new pair.

I did see some comment about the possibility of Niner Nation forum site going down. Don't know if that will actually happen, but hopefully if it did then the Charlotte fans would migrate over here as their replacement. It would make it easier to keep up with their teams as a fan from another school.
