Welcome Forum Members Of Scout.com
I would like to formally welcome the members of the Scout.com Raptors message board.

They have decided as a group to come and join us here at RF, and I wanted to extend them an official Welcome.

For those who don't know, Scout.com has been around for a long long time, but the activity over there has ran a little dry, so they have decided to join us.

Some very good posters will be joining us, and I would like to thank them for choosing us over the likes of some of the "other" raptor forums.

I would also like to take the chance to thank the members of RF, who continue to make this the place to hang, for the cream of the crop of Raptor fans.

Scout boys, feel free to use this thread to find each other, and any questions, please dont hesitiate to ask.

Hey all,

I've posted the link to this thread over at scout.com, and hopefully we'll have most/all of our posters come over to this board. I was gone all day, and haven't had time to link this thread yet, but just put it up...thanks for the welcoming words already.

So people have a little bit of a background, our forum at scout.com was once very active, and most of our members have been there since at least 2002 - however, years ago, there was a split, and some people left. Then a couple of years ago, on scout's main page, they removed NBA and NHL links to our forums, which subsequently lead to a cut off of new posters. That, coupled with the lack of success with the team, it being hard to watch all of the games on national TV, and the posting on our board had slowed down to a trickle.

Our posters (the few who have remained) are known as very knowledgeable, mature posters, and as said... when the decision was made to move, we didn't want to join one of the "other" boards out there, because I've been an off and on poster here for a bit, and thought we would be a good fit here.

To help y'all get to know us, I figured I'd put a few fields that our posters could fill in, so you don't think we're a bunch of noobs - because everybody knows that posts = knowledge. :)

Why I joined a Raptors Forum in the first place:

"Known as": long-winded, mod, the cup is half-full poster.
Why I joined a Raptors Forum in the first place: I had looked for a while, and decided that I did not want to join other forums, because of maturity levels. Living out west, where there are less fans, I wanted a place to talk to people about Raptors (and NBA) ball.

Anyways, thanks again for all of the kind welcomes, and I hope more of our posters come and join this board.

I live in Calgary.

I have lived in Halifax, London (Ont), Collingwood, Calgary, Canmore, Vancouver, and Whistler.

Actually grew up in London, and moved out west in '97, and ironically, detested every other Toronto team because of ridiculous over-coverage in Ont. I was always a basketball fan, from the Jordan days.

It's hard being a fan out west sometimes, which I think has actually made me more of a fan. When I lived in Vancouver, and the games were sometimes not on national TV, I'd head by myself out to this little place for brunch and asked them to turn the games on, on Sunday afternoon games.
