Former Eagles
Why are they all "Fomer Eagles" lumped together in one link? It would be nice to have each with their own link by name like the current members, as well as a photo of them on the homepage. Just a thought. Many Eagles fans originated from the music created by the members who were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame... And a big reunion gig would be amazing. There's not time like the present!

Re: Former Eagles
Welcome Allison Ė Glad you found us and hope you enjoy yourself here on The Border. The reason we donít have separate forums for Bernie, Randy, and Don F. is simply because of the amount of activity. Even by combining this forum for all three former members, it simply does not have a comparable number of topics as the active members. If that changes in the future, Iím sure the admin would consider separating them. In the meantime, feel free to contribute to the activity here if you would like to see this happen. :wink:

I have also been a fan from the beginning of the band, and I love every incarnation of members. However, I always joke and say that hell would have to freeze over twice more in order for a reunion of all 7 members to ever happen. But, I also have learned from following this band to never say never. :nope:

ETA: Allison, I thought of this after I originally responded to you. I don't know if you are aware of this or not, but we do have separate fansites for all 7 members that you may be interested in checking out. The links to the sites for each of the former members are:

Hope you will check them out and find them informative.

Re: Former Eagles
I'm with Allison. Bernie and Randy deserve their own link. Felder, I'm not so sure...

Re: Former Eagles
I've not joined a website before with posts, so this is quite fun. Thanks for the quick replies and warm welcome!

I am aware of the seperate, individual websites; however, perhaps the former members have less traffic because they are lumped together and attention is not so easily drawn to them (a marketing/website traffic issue, with poor billing)? Or not. Regardless, if this website is truly for the 'current' members, then it is nice to have any mention of former members at all. My comment was my first impression, first day on the site, fresh eyes. The impression was that the individual current member links, and photo at the top of every the page, gave them all the credit for the playlist/music catelog. But I guess it really only matters if the former members are happy with the format... not me. This was just my observation.

P.S. Nice to meet you all!

Re: Former Eagles
Hey Alison! Glad you've joined us!

In terms of the former members IMO I think the reason their forum has less activitity is quite simple; Bernie Randy and Don F are less visibly active than the four current members so it makes sense that their forum would be quieter. JMO of course 8-)

Re: Former Eagles
Nice to meet you, Allison!

I understand where you're coming from. I've considered divvying up the forums many times, but it looks kind of bad for the guys when they have so little activity in their individual forums. This way, the forum looks pretty active. I don't see why anyone who wants to talk about Randy, Bernie, or Felder wouldn't do so just because they're in a combo forum.

As for the banner at the top, I've actually designed several board styles, many of which include the former members in their banner. This one with the current members is the default, but anyone who wants the former members in their banner just needs to scroll down to the bottom where you see a white box that says "EOC Default." That's a drop-down menu, and you can select different era styles (For instance "One of These Nights") which will change the banner to show the members of your choice. You can also change your style in your User CP under "Edit Options."

ok, let's give Felder his own link.

But no way for Irving Azoff!!

Re: Former Eagles

That's more like it:thumbsup:. Personally, Irving sounds like a complete butthead, but we gotta take into consideration that the Eagles love him and his methods, especially Henley who is very close to him, and it's quite possible they may not have risen to the top as fast and stayed there all these years without his obnoxious little self battling everyone and everything every inch of the way:hilarious:.

That said, no damn link for Irv!!!
As Henley said at the HOF induction---"he may be satan, but he's our satan". :hilarious:
