What was all the drama? I remember at the time PCF was probably the biggest political forum but it seems to have lost that stature. I still see a lot of old posters though, so hello!

I'm the former IronBrigadeMike (IBM), by the way.


Howdy!

Brief explanation here:

http://www.answers.com/Q/What_happened_ ... ire_forums

The original PCF went down due to hardware/software failure. The site was still running on PHPBB2.0 and did not have an active administrator/coder to work on the site. Forum user Quell had proposed setting up a backup site in case PCF had a large crash for users to go to and keep in contact, however the site staff deleted threads about the backup site, citing forum policies about not advertising other forums. After a few crashes, PCF finally went down permanently and quite a few users found their way to Political Panic - the backup site started by Quell - though the majority of the site membership was lost.
Political Panic ran into its own set of problems and eventually turned into Political-Crossfire.com. Only a few of the old PCF posters remain on the site, though it is still active currently as of Oct 2014.

heh, yes indeed.

And thanks for the answers yall.

And yeah I remember all the old timers here. Good to see the old gang. Glad a part of it is still together. It's unfortunate what happened.

Edit: Actually, any way to change my name to IBM? Wasn't really thinking when I signed up and just threw something in there.

I can do this for you; your name will change and all other information (such as pass) will stay the same. let me know that you are okay with it, and, if you can't log in after, realize that it is because you need to change the login to IBM, IronBrigadeMike, IRON_BRIGADE_MIKE, or whatever it is you ask

which is it, by the way? please confirm (and then I need to see if that's available)

I'll do "IBM" to keep it simple (without the quotations). Thanks!
