What has happened to Coasterbuzz?

Uh-oh....Don't start getting multiple personalities on us, Greg. We've already got one of those skulking around here... ;)

It's my understanding that M:TR's track would need heavy re-profiling to withstand the initial thrust of a launch mode;)

However, that's only what I've heard. You'd actually have to ask someone with M:TR in their track record for a better idea................

I'll stop:)

Please...

Too late for that ;)

It's funny. What this whole discussion comes down to is, CoasterBuzz has become a community of sorts. Depending on personality, some newcomers will fit right in (hi, Dawn!), some may be a bit put off but come for the content, and some may go running for the hills. That's what happens. Look at rec.roller-coaster (that's a newsgroup for those of you who don't use netnews). Same situation, only not as easy for many people to use, and an older community. (In fact, recently an RRC bigot was telling me that the reason he likes RRC and doesn't like CoasterBuzz, is because "RRC is a community, while CoasterBuzz isn't yet because it's too new". I think this topic, if nothing else, proves that CB HAS matured to that point.)

Wow DawnMarie! I just looked at your profile. Ain't you a little cutie*! Between you and me a fight for Justin Timberlake would be no contest - you'd win ;)

I wonder if this thread will ever rival the "content" of the DDR thread.... Where is that thread now? Somewhere near 800 posts?

What I want to know is how I came to be in the CPG when I was nominated to be Most Congenial Buzzer in a poll just a few months ago....

Rob, the "content" of this thread, for MY interests, is WAY better than the DDR thread.....not that I've had the inclination to read the whole thing....Den just won't let that thread die, will he...;)

But this thread, it's like the chronicling of the Fall of Rome...C'buzz used to be so pure...ROFL.

If you wanna stalk in Chambana, I suggest you dont do it in the springtime. The stench of cow manure can be overpowering....(then again, it's not unlike Coasterbuzz at times...;))

And Greg, arent you the veritable "Oat Boy"? What are you denouncing your "throne" in the MOJ? Great, now there will be a scramble for that seat...

I can't believe 'Moosh passed the analogies section....perhaps he cheated by looking at Bass's answers...;)

and jeremy, personally I find you very punny....and bubbly....but not as bubbly as *Champaign*...:)

jeremy-it's not just the *smell* (those asterisks are useful at times) anymore. Out at the south farms, they're using some chemical or something that's poisoning the quad squirrels and birds...there are dead animals all over campus...it's spooky.

Dawn, too old for the stalker crew

rollergator's avatar

yes, dawnmarie, those asterisks *are* useful, aren't they....;). I just fail to understand why "that guy in FL" gets hassled about them....they make the writing more clear, and the reading more FUN....and I don't get asked as much "Whaddya mean by that?".....oh, and you are NOT too old to be stalked. Just too young to be stalked by ME...;)

Mamoosh's avatar

Jeremy - IIRC you didn't too too hot on those oral exams either ;)

Moosh - waiting to get run over by the cart...

Welcome to the New & Improved Coasterbuzz...tomfoolery allowed!

...have to find something to hassle the FL guy about...you know that tomorrow's high temperature in Central IL is 5 degrees..the HIGH...it's similarly cold throughout the greater mid-western U.S. Yeah. You're so darn congenial all the time what else can people hassle you about?

....haven't seen any of my pics, have ya...;)

Moosh: Well if I knew you guys were so *anal* about everthing, I would have studied harder. It's not my fault that you all suck and I dont :)

DM: That's terrible. Well, not really. I always hated those "Killer squirrels" guarding all the garbage cans

RGW: For the last time I'm puny only one "n" :)

I don't think RRC is much of a community anymore. It used to be a very friendly and fun place back in the "golden age" of 1998-2001, but trolls, intolerance, and holier-than-thou attitudes have devastated the place. A lot of the people that were fun left and many of the most trollish and sour folk stayed.

Coasterbuzz right now "feels" like RRC did back in 1997 or so, many people coming together in friendship and learning about different parts of the country. Fortunately, due to the one advantage CB enjoys over RRC (moderation), trollism is not bad at all over here, and maybe that will allow the community to grow and not splinter. I hope that the killjoys don't win out over the people that like to mix in a little fun with their coaster-talk.
