Onnidan Webmaster as the site enters its 3rd decade kudos
« on: December 01, 2019, 11:33:57 AM »
I can't believe I've been posting here for over twenty years. :lol:
I've read and posted from all over the world. Places like :
Somalia, FOBs in warzones in Iraq, Afghanistan ( was reading one night while and we got shelled ), East Timor, and so many other locations .
The HBCU sports news given here has enlightened me in so many ways.
It made me "be about it" and join the Howard exec board for the athletic boosters which opened my eyes on what alums say and what they actually do.
I hope for may more years on Onnidan.

Thank you for providing us this vehicle to share our love for HBCU sports. :clap: :clap: :clap:

I started posting in 2007, but had been reading before then. GK was the first poster I met in 2008 at the Pioneer Bowl hosted in Columbia.

I came onboard in earnest when the MEACfan.com spinoff Politics board crashed. I must say that I've enjoyed the interaction. Thank you OW!👍🏾👍🏾

I joined in 2004 after relocating in Stockholm. This site afforded me the mechanism to stay connected to something very near and deaf to my heart, HBCU’s.

Thank you OW for this outstanding platform.

20 for me.  Joined while I was teaching high school in Fayetteville.  Congrats Onnidan!  What a milestone!  Even blackplanet didn't last this long!    :lol:

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
