HF Boards for Bolts Newbie

As a total newbie I just wanted to thank HF-Boards and all you Bolt-heads for having this forum to yak about da Bolts. Was on Facebook and the Lightning Forum is totally inundated with trolls from other teams bashing and ranting and blabbering all kinds of trash. Impossible to even get a conversation started. VERY refreshing to have a place to actually talk Lightning hockey.

Does anyone know if anyone from the Lightning organization actually wanders in here? Just curious, used to message with Andreychuk occasionally and he stated there is a big push within the organization to get their name/logo out in the community.

Along that line I was at a local Sport's Authority (what a joke for a name!) late last week and they had a whole section of sport's logo gear and the ONLY thing they had for the Lightning was ONE pennant that came with a Lightning sticker. No hats. No shirts. No sweaters/jerseys. Had a bunch of Red Sox and Yankees gear, but no Lightning stuff AT ALL. WTF? When will the community get on board?

Anyway, thanks for the outlet.

lol. The main forum is filled with people who don't follow, and therefore are often misinformed about our team.

People love/hate main forum because they don't discuss Community.

Hmmm, not sure if I even want to know what forum you're referring to except maybe to make sure I avoid it. A forum on the HF-Boards? National Hockey League Talk?

Correct. It's also known as the "Black Hole of Knee-Jerk Reactions".

The one on Tyrone Blvd has a bunch of Lightning gear...all with the older logo. They do have some t-shirts with the new logo.

Welcome to the HFBoards. Don't get your hopes up that this will not be invaded by trolls and flamers.

Send a message via MSN to Bish please
There's a member of the Lightning who posts here but sadly his job is to keep the wifi from crashing. That is as close as we get, officially.

Welcome.

Ahhh... consider it avoided (unless I want to be entertained by the strange ability of humans to speak without actually rubbing two living brain cells together). Saw a few Leaf trolls in here, I guess we should look at that as a compliment as I have no intention of ever visiting their forum.

A sig?

User CP > Edit Signature

You may not be able to have a signature yet, as there's a waiting period for new members to get full privileges.

Signatures are usually pretty lame though if they're not quoting me.

You can't have a signature if you are a rookie poster. You have to wait 45 days and have a minimum of 15 posts for your rookie restrictions to lift.

Here is a list of features that won't turn on until you become a regular member

Thanks for the info, says that you have to wait 45 days and post at least 15 posts.... I can cover the 15 posts (per day?... just kidding) but I don't control time....... yet
