    Someone on the Reds forum at mlb.com suggested it but I must have not visited RedsZone at that time because I remember seeing it on google.

    Re: How did you find/hear about RedsZone?

    When things went to nothing but smack talk and juvenile antics on the old enquirer board, Boss and GIK stated in a thread that they were thinking about starting a new board. VERY shortly thereafter (seemed like a couple of days), they announced they started a new board. I immediately joined and never posted again at the enquirer board. Larkin Fan, rem, RFS62, Phil, Wetzel, and a whole lot of poster who were trying to make serious post joined at the same time. About a year later I think, the enquirer board callapsed under it's own weight of bs and lack of moderators. Then about a year or two later I think, the dayton board collapsed, for reasons I'm not aware of. Then we had a second wave of serious posters join; princeton, M2, etc.

    Reds Daily Blog has all the different Reds links and this was by far the best forum I have lurked at.

    Redliner, until Boss generated a moderated room at the RedsZone site.

    IIRC the official reason was the coverage of 9/11 and how much bandwidth it took (graphics, videos) - they couldn't keep it up, also didn't they shut down all the forums, too?

    Actually the racial discussions on the News board probably had more to do with it than anything.

    A fellow KSR/Cats Pause member referred RedsZone to me a couple years ago. And I've been addicted to this place ever since. Definitely the best Reds community on the internet IMO.
