Doc that is where we are hosting this for now until the full site is done. Then it will be under one domain.

We need to get more people posting on here.  Where do you think the best place to advertise is? (Other than TheMat.com)

We are trying not to. We are doing a launch that includes advertising in June and we should see a big bump in posters here then.

Oh, I see. I thought of that after I posted it.  So this is a temporary home until the launch?

Yo V. I think that you ought to give the active members here at least a week advance notice before the launch of the new site so that we can facilitate current interest in the different categories of discussion. Each member can start threads that are "hot topics" on there particular home state sites. For me it would be class wrestling in Indiana (HS) or should IU find a new coach (college) or what are Hump's chances for the olympics (international) or Evan Bayh for Pres (general) or well you get the gist.  That way when the name of the site reaches individuals from all over the U.S. and people check it out they have something familiar to weigh in on. Thus giving them a reason (even if the don't initially join) to tune back in to see what is being discussed.  

Just a thought.

Drooke,

That is a great Idea and I like it. We will do something like this more sure.

Lots of virtual Cake, maybe that will draw Hardcore back out.

I am getting the feeling that the cake offer was just a ruse.  >:(
