Like JI & JN -> Fin Heaven & The Fins

Recommended Posts

Sorta kinda like what happened at here between JI and JN, the Fin Heaven (http://www.finheaven.com/) split up and became The Fins (http://forums.thephins.com) with a lot of the posters left one to go to the other.

Anyway, looks like Max followed me over there, so might as well stop by and say hey (no personal smack, just football stuff).

That wasn't me, I am just so famous that people steal my username everyone. Fame, has its price.

What did they split up over? Anything cash-related or just disagreements in general with the hierarchy on Finheaven?

I heard it was something about a $55 surcharge for useless stuff. :bag: Anyway that's what I heard. :biggrin:

The Phins is the place to be if you want to talk intelligent enemy Football. Great site.
Thanks bro. Things didn't work out. The whole staff, and a lot of awesome members made the move. Don't want to bring up the past, but this is the best thing that could of happened. I am an admin over there.

It is ok. Your bad humor and terrible grammar always give you away.

BZ made a funny yesterday in another thread. For those of you keeping score at home, that means he is done making us laugh until 2009. Adjust your records accordingly.

Am I now the class clown? Am I here just to make you laugh?

They are doing pretty well, 1,471 members in just over a few months almost half of what JN did in 3 years.

Building a website with a fourm is easy, building and maintaining a thriving community is difficult.

Their site is huge -- I think they obviously benefited from the main site being down for awhile. I never understood how or why the other site finheaven was offline for so long. That was weird. One of the biggest sites out there and they are offline for months. Wow.

Anyhow getting people to post on a forum is a lot more work than most people realize.

Good luck on your new site- we know how tough it is to create a new site from scratch- ask Tom Shane.

POW! faba, once again flying under the radar and landing a haymaker. If we had a POTW award here, I would definitely nominate this.

I think the story is that some people took the money and didn't put it back into rebuilding the site right away. That is why the mods got mad and left.

They certainly got a lot of those users from FH being down for 3-4 months, but still, 1,400 is an impressive start.

Is the new forum less blindly homerish than the old one? I used to lurk there and saw many crying fits and bannings of posters who dared to suggest that the Dolphins were anything less than living gods.

Brother there was issues such as things happening in the staff's lives, all volunteer staff, security issues, new upgrades, servers, getting backup site up and running, keeping members happy, and other behind the scene issues that didn't help.

Bro when the ownership started asking for new staff members without talking to the existing staff members first, that is not very cool.

We are having respectful football conversation over there. Take a look and see what you think for yourself bro.

I have only been there for a few days, but my guess is they are no more Homerish than here or anywhere else.

That being said, I used to really enjoy FH. Sure they were a little rough on the outsider, but as long as you made a valid argument as opposed to a "Phins SUCK" comment, the mods would stand up for you and let you be.

The new site is smack free, but I am sure a good debate or two on sports stuff will be allowed.

We appreciate the members here who have stopped by the site.
