    It seems that there are quite a few people with CF birthdays today. How did each of you come to this site the first time. I read a post on CN about this site and have been here since.

    Good topic:) I'm actually coding some improvements today that will help out a lot on the search engines as well. We'll be growing 'till the cows come home...

    Haha... I don't remember. It wasn't from a friend or another board. So maybe a search engine?

    I came upon this sight through a link from another message board. It was at the time of the Wayne Morgan firing and new coaching search. I, like most, was obsessed with tryin to get the "latest" news and updates. I was immediately impressed with the format, the general quality of the posts, and have been an avid reader (and occasional poster) since.

    For those that are choosing other. How did you find CF? I understand Jeremy would be other since he is the creator.

    I got pissed off the other sites charged to view info as well as the people on the other sites seemed arrogant, so my roommate (dbronco7sc) said "hey try this site" and I never looked back.

    Like Kentkel I was looking for info at the time of the Morgan departure. Hands down, CF offered better information, (faster with fewer errors) even though it does not describe itself as a "news" site.

    I found it sort of by accident on Google. I think I was searching for news of goats caught up in tornadoes or something like that. One thing lead to another and BLAMMO, I found Cyclone Fanatic.

    I was told by some random guy. He said "Here's a website, here's your login and password, get on and tell me what you think." He never asked if I wanted to be on the site, but I didn't have much choice.

    It came to me from above...in the middle of the night...message carried by a man with one leg and no arms.

    Or...I may have discovered it from a different Cyclone website. I can't recall for sure...

    Some of you people are odd.....


    Why were you looking for goats in tornados in the first place? That has to be one of the oddest things I've heard someone search for. :baffled5wh:


    Did he at least buy you dinner or a drink before? Did he call you the next day? That almost sounds like CF Rape... my condolences.
