Title: Happy Birthday MUScoop!
Post by: TallTitan34 on October 23, 2007, 12:26:56 AM
I see that one year ago today MUScoop was created.

I'd say 823 members and 34241 posts later it successfully filled the void left from RingOutAhoya.com

A big thanks to all the admins!

Thanks guys - it's been a good year!

We've got a great admin/moderator team, but without the 823 members & fans, the site would be nothing.

As always, if you've got thoughts on how the site could be better - drop them in the Suggestions  (http://www.muscoop.com/index.php?board=6.0)board.

thank you for giving me a site that I can interact with others that have the same passion of college basketball as myself, and a place to talk MU basketball.

I was out of town when MU played Pitt, and had no TV access whatsoever.  Kept up with everything (ESPN Game Day, the kid who was rejected for wearing a warrior outfit, THE WIN, etc.) with a now old Treo and MUScoop.  Despite missing the game, I had the ability to keep close to the action and, by hitting the refresh button learned of the win instantly.   I, therefore, have the needle firmly implanted.  Happy Anniversary!  Here's to many more.........................!

AND SoCal!!! Without him this site would be a tenth of what it is.  One less moderator, no season prediction contest, no iphone updates..

And thanks to all of you for your very kind comments.  I am just ecstatic that it has served a beneficial purpose for so many of you.  I/We look forward to many more years together with you on this site!

I am relatively new to this site.  I was surprised this morning to learn that the site is only one year old.  It seemed much further along and established than that.  So thank you for your hard work and congratulations.

Thanks for all the well wishes.

.. Indeed, I was really shocked that the site took off as quickly as it did.   When you think about it, starting with a blank slate, now 34,000+ messages and 840+ members in 12 months?  That's amazing growth.

I have to admit, when RingOutAhoya.com folded, I was very skeptical that MUScoop.com would gain traction and build itself into the community it is today. I'm happy I was wrong and I'm proud that I was one of the first members to sign up. It's a great site and I thank everyone who takes part in providing me this oasis during my work day. Special thanks to the admins. Go MU!

It'll be weird in ~3 years when MUScoop will have been born before freshmen at MU.

And in 7 years, when MUScoop turns 21 and can drink.

Hah, yeah.  We're holding off the party until we can throw the bash as usual :)

My wife's b-day was early April, and well...was sad.  But she's gradually grown less angry because it seems everyone will get a "covid birthday"  (unless you don't, RIP).  The next bummer though, around her b-day this year she was aggressively planning an international girls trip for Apr 2021.  Whoops, probably not going to happen either.

It'll be weird in ~3 years when MUScoop will have been born before freshmen at MU.

And in 7 years, when MUScoop turns 21 and can drink.

Indeed, the place is nearly an MU institution at this point.  If nobody visited/posted - we wouldn't still be here.  I've called forums a dying breed - but we'll be here as long as the fans will have us...

Now that Scoop is older and more mature can we finally start talking politics?  I have some thoughts on Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Mitt Romney and Barack Obama that I have been saving for just the right time.
