    Just wondering

    How long did it take people to become regular posters on here? Did you join and hit the posts or did you wait and read for a while? Just kind of curious to see.

    I read for a day or two, then posted occasionally for the first few months. Some time around the third or fourth month, it became the first place and last place I went every day, and my posting really picked up from there.

    I used to check out "the other" Cyclone sites now and then until I heard about this one. I've been watching and posting on CF since. Thank you Jeremy and the rest of the CF crew! I'll definitely have to come over and introduce myself at the CF tailgates next year.

    Re: Just wondering

    I've been on here for a few months over a year now. For the first few months I would troll for the most part, making the occasional post. Probably about 6 months or so in I started posting more regularly. It kind of goes in phases though. Sometimes there will be stretches when there's not many threads I'm interested in enough to contribute, although I enjoy reading the opinions of others on a daily basis.

    btw, merry christmas

    Re: Just wondering

    I stumbled upon Cyclone Fanatic very early in its existence (under 10 registered members) but didn't register until it became mandatory to view the boards. Even then I was just an occasional poster. Then again, I guess I still am for the most part!

    Re: Just wondering

    i found it through google and started right away if i remember right.. at first it wasnt as much but once i got going.. i found it addicting


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Re: Just wondering

    I also found CycloneFanatic pretty early on, I think I was one of the first hundred registered users and I only checked it out because everybody was ripping on it on the "other" site. Read for a few days, started posting, and everything went from there.

    Re: Just wondering

    I was late to the game. I actually used CF until they made it pay only. Whenever that was, then I started posting here only. So I have not really been posting all that long.

    I found this site the day before my 18th birthday. Don't know how but all I know is that it was a very good birthday present.

    Re: Just wondering

    I was a regular poster and subscriber to CR(cy'dburnz), then a couple weeks after CF was founded and the whole WM fiasco took place I canceled there and picked up right here.

    Re: Just wondering

    I found cyclone fanatic right away. I had a subscription with rivals and Jeremy was posting coaching change information on the rivals free board when Morgan was fired. So I was over here looking from day one, but didn't register till it became mandatory. And I have been posting alot recently but I imagine ti will drop off again. Always a regular reader not sure if I qualify as a regular poster yet

    Re: Just wondering

    I started reading this site when it 1st came available but didn't register until recently and didn't really start posting anything until we started getting credits for posting. I love the new betting board.

    Re: Just wondering

    I have been a member since the very beginning - something like the 82nd registered member. I read several times a day, but only post when i have something to add to a conversation (thus the relatively low post count of 780 or so)

    Re: Just wondering

    I found it early on, only a few hundred people or so. I hadn't taken part in a cyclone forum since the early days of AOL and Hoiberg was on the team. I don't think their was any moderation back then and their was swearing and such on it. I remember being ripped a new one for spelling Hoiberg, Hoidberg. Stopped using forums until I found this one. I stay out of posting in sports I don't get to see, Football (when not televised) or recruiting which I don't follow, but I love hearing from people in the know. It's hard to get good info in LA. I'd say I've always posted since the beginning, but mostly a troller, unless someone starts ripping on Soccer.

    Re: Just wondering

    Thanks for sharing all your stories everybody, it's fun to read. It's been fun to watch the stats on visits vs posts vs threads, etc. An interesting stat is that we've increased visits every week and that the number of daily posts and threads has also steadily increased. We haven't really lost any of our posters from day one and we keep getting new ones each day. It's been quite a ride and hopefully it only gets better.

    Thanks and Merry Christmas!
