damn...been a long time. I look in here a few times a year. I am sorta curious why this place still exists. It really has not been anything for at least 10 years...certainly not anything since the “Great Disruption”. I do miss the glory years and kudos to you Oats for giving a fuck but ...really? ....Why?

one,two,three,four.........

Still the best place to find and get your Springsteen music fix if you know who to see and where to look.  Which is how this place got started.

I'm guessing you started celebrating early?  Happy Holidays!

Treating this as a legitimate question.  I'll try to explain why, at least for myself.

Besides the obvious reasons of loving Bruce's music and all that goes with it.  The sharing of the news, stories and his music.  I personally have met hundreds of people through this board.  Two of my best friends in the world, I  first met here on the SPL.  Currently, I personally keep in touch with at least 50-100 members.  I have fiends in Europe and all over the world due to the SPL.  One friend from London visited with me and my brother, Ed, twice in the past year.  I have fond memories of the times with my daughter at SPL tailgates.  I met the love of my life  on a forum.  I still get together with fellow members every year for a long weekend at Light of Day.  If it wasn't for CJ and the SPL I wouldn't have these friendships and memories.

I want to see the SPL go on for as long as possible.  It fosters camaraderie and friendships and in its own way helps keep Bruce's music alive and going forward.  Which is exactly how I felt about it shortly after joining all those years ago.

Since this "new look" came years ago, the board started to lose active members. I still haven't get used to this board software. Out of various boards this is easily the messiest one.

How so?  You realize you can customize the look in your settings, right?

And it's so easy to navigate. 

1) Hold the mouse over the FORUMS category at the top.

A Drop Down Menu appears

2) Hold the mouse over the category/forum you desire and Sub Categories/Forums appear .

3) Choose the desired Category/Forum.

Simple as 1,2,3.

The reason I came back to post is I was just chatting with a couple old members of SPL on another music forum. I asked the question after seeing once again the threads started by Oats mainly with no replys... So yea...it's pretty much dried up.

That's not exactly true.  A lot of these posts are informative only.  If you look on the main forum you can see how many folk read that particular post.  It may surprise you.

Who do I see and where do I look? Gerk and Bobby G sent me my first boots, but they didn't fit very well.

It is sorta comforting that I can still access private messages back to 2006...

Don't read them out loud.  After all, you're happily married now.
