Why choose the NYY Stadium Insider Forums?


After debating long and hard, I decided to cease posting at the only Yankee message board I had ever known. The community had grown enormously and had some great posters, but certain things pushed me away. Personal differences aside, the technical specs of the message board were lacking. I decided to utilize a new message board system and attempt to build a Yankees message board from scratch. Obviously, the internet is full of Yankee message boards. At this point, NYY Stadium Insider and the NYY Stadium Insider forums are amongst the newest on the internet. Rome wasn't built in a day and we know it. That is why I am reaching out to you and asking you to come over to the new message board and do what you do best - talk about the Yankees. Even if you average 5-10 posts per day on the current board you post on and come over here and post 1-3 times per day, your contribution has been invaluable.

Here are some of the reasons you should check out the board:

-Quick Reply box - Want to quickly reply to the last post? Do so with one click of the mouse
- Fully functioning search feature
- Block quote text as you are typing
- Fully customizable smilies

(Kaybli is always adding new, hilarious ones and they don't show up with the white outline on the board. You have to see them to believe them
- Built in image hosting - don't worry about having a place to upload your images to - you can do it right within the message board system.
- Link within the toolbar of the postbox to allow linking to your photobucket account. Sign in once and always have access to your photobucket images
- Large avatars (we suggest finding a scrubby OR obscure Yankee from the past and making it your avatar - it is kind of the board theme)
- No limit for PMs (you won't have a full inbox after a couple of arguments via PM)
- RELIABLE, FAST dedicated hosting. We are not housing the message board on our servers - we have gone with (brand new offshoot of EZ Board) to handle that to make sure we never have a message board crash or virus attack.
- Ticket exchange board for people to trade tickets and sell tickets at face value. Any tickets being sold above face will be removed immediately.

- A hand-picked group of  early adopters to the board will make your transition to a new Yankees message board all the more enjoyable.
- The always hilarious Kaybli is one of the owners/administrators of the site. If for no other reason, join the board so you can read his outrageous middle of the night rants about Tony Womack.
- We have a great community of posters from around the globe. There is insight from Yankees fans who live on the doorstep of the stadium and from people in different countries. There will be no "East Coast bias" here.
- We don't have any heavy-handed moderators or control freaks. There is no minimum time you need to be registered in order to post. This is a community based on Yankees fans speaking their minds. Extreme vulgarities and personal insults will be handled promptly if that stuff ever happens at all.
- There are only two admins (Kaybli and myself) and no moderators. We are always checking the board to make sure things are working properly and adding features when possible. We are pretty much at your beckon call - this is our baby.

I can go all day with this stuff, but I don't want to waste any more of your time. At the very least give us a look and register your username. Right now there isn't too much to talk about, but things will start heating up in 47 days when pitchers and catchers report. If you are having trouble signing up your username, it is probably because you were signed up for EZBoard previously and you have a username in the system. The best thing to do is to go to, log into your account, click on your profile and then click the "migrate my account to Yuku" banner at the top of the page. This will enable your username on the Yuku system which houses the NYYStadium Insider message boards.

Thanks very much for taking the time to read this and have a happy and healthy new year.
