This board was developed to provide a "meeting place" for those of us who grew up in the Bronx, who feel that the Bronx instilled a karma in us that we carry, for better or worse, to this day. It's an online service to be used to find old friends, talk about the old neighborhoods, and keep our Bronx heritage alive. This board is intended to serve former Bronxites. This is a privately-owned and operated online service.
Here is what this message board is not intended for:
Initially, The BRONX MESSAGE BOARD lists all of the currently available messages under the "Announcements" box. Original messages are listed in chronological order, with the most recent at the top. Each entry lists the subject, the author, and the date it was posted. There's also a number in parentheses to the right that represents the number of follow-ups, or responses, to the original message. Follow-up messages are listed directly below the corresponding original message.
Messages in the list are indented to keep "threads" of messages together. In other words, when someone posts a response to a message, the response heading will appear indented beneath the message to which it's related. If someone posts a response to that message, then that response will be indented beneath the original response, and so on.
To read the text of any message or follow-up, click on its highlighted subject. This will display all of the details of the posting and the text of the message.
A message may contain an email link to the author. If you click on the author's highlighted name, you can email her/him directly, provided that your browser supports this function.
You may always return to the list of current messages by clicking on "Nostalgia Message Board" or by using your browser's "Back" button.
You must be registered to post messages or responses. Here is where you register.
To post a new message, click on the "START NEW TOPIC" link on the left. This will display a message entry form.
The following is required when posting a message:
Once you've entered everything, you must then click on the "Post Message" button at the bottom. You'll receive a confirmation of what you've done if all goes well. If you're not happy with what you've entered, click on the "Reset" button to clear the data-entry boxes.
Posting a follow-up is not much different from posting a new message. While you're on the screen that displays a message, click on "Post Followup" to go to the follow-up entry area. The only difference between this and an original message is that the subject is already filled for you (although you may modify it if desired), and that you must click on the "Submit Follow Up" button to post it. Follow-up messages must comply with the same content guidelines as new messages.
Your message may be seen by anyone who browses this site. Some search engines (like Google or AltaVista) will index all the words it finds at a specific site, and therefore your entry may appear in such an index. While we do allow indexing scans to be done on the Bronx Board's server, we have no control over the resulting indexes. Therefore, if there's anything you don't want to be publicly available, we suggest you save it for email.
If you post something that inadvertently contains errors, or is a duplicate posting, etc., there is no way for you to correct or delete it. If the problem is troublesome for you, email us at and we'll fix or remove it. Please include the Reference ID ("BXnnnn" that appears in your message at the bottom right) in your note. Otherwise, your message will remain on the board until it "ages" off, which will probably be in a week or two (based on how busy the board gets). Don't worry about typographical or other minor errors unless they affect the meaning of your message.
There are two circumstances that this topic addresses: not seeing your message when it's first posted, and not seeing it after you've already seen it at least once.
