I don't know if this is the right thread for this (although I strongly believe it is) but since it appears this thread is live, I'm gonna post it here anyway.
I'm not sure what the site ownership's feelings on membership / publicity are...
But this site is not currently being archived / located by the major web search services in the way you would expect. I have to assume this means that the appropriate meta tags are not applied, or that the site is being protected / blocked from being located in this way.
Searching "WVU message board", "WVU Mountaineer Message Board", "WVU Nation", "Mountaineer Nation", "The Mountaineer Nation", and numerous other likely search terms DO NOT retrieve this site.
Searching "themountaineernation.com" does, but its highly unlikely that anybody is going to search the exact name of the site.
You also don't get the site if you search "discuss mountaineer football" or "WVU recruiting" or "Mountaineer recruiting."
The fact that TMN doesn't show up when searching these common terms (all of which describe TMN, and that you might HOPE would show the site) means that WVU fans looking for a place to come, aren't going to come here because they don't KNOW about it.
So that more or less limits the membership to spreading word-of-mouth. That may be the intention of the site administrators, or it may not.
But I just figured I would pass this along, in case it was something people hadn't thought about / discussed.
I know that, while I love this site, I wouldn't mind some more WVU fans to share it with. And I know that if I were a WVU fan, and didn't know about this site, I would really have been dissapointed to find that a search for a site like this turned up only other sites like BGN and crap.
Oliver Luck: Why? Why is that impossible? You're so concerned with squabbling for the scraps from the BCS' table that you've missed your God-given right to something better. There is a difference between us. You think the people of this state exist to provide you with position. I think your position exists to provide those people with victory. And I go to make sure that they have it.
