did this message board even exist before the merger?

or is this message board just a day and half old at the most? Where are the posters and their posts that have always been here, before all us HI guys got here yesterday and today?

The message board debuted yesterday. It was built in the months leading up to the merger.

So…the merger has been in the works/known for months OR the message board would have been a competitor to HI?

In the works/known for months. But they couldn’t tell us because Scout would get snippy. Which it did.
