Thank you Hicks for making PD the Frank Vogel of both Pacers and basketball sites.
Now, is there a way that a mass e-mail could be sent out from the member list here to notify both old inactive members and currently active members of what the new site will actually be? That might spur some former posters to return, as well as making sure that those of us who are currently active will make a smooth transition?
Thanks for all your hardwork Hicks.
Sorry to here you are stepping down. I think you did a fabulous job running this place. Putting up with all the day to day crap and handling it very fair and classy manner. Best of luck.
Hope you hang around as just one of the guys.

Thank you Hicks for being a part of the best fan discussion board on the internet. Thanks to all who contribute to the success of this site. See I can be positive too. I hope you keep posting always enjoy reading your posts.
TELL ME THAT HICKS DID NOT TAKE HIS TALENT TO SOUTH BEACH
what's the minimum amnesty claim on Hicks?
I am under the cap.
Seriously, though... thanks for all your hard work.
The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)
Thanks a lot Hicks!
Its been a pleasure discussing Pacer basketball with you over the years.
Youll truly be missed!
Stop quoting people I have on ignore!
I came after the great schism. I lurked for a # of years b4 becoming a Pacers Digest member. The Star and Realgm wouldn't open me up an account, LOL, but Pacers Digest did. I've truly enjoyed the 4 years here, and can say THANKS HICKS for allowing me to be part of PD!
I have no idea what you are off to do in life, but I wish you all the success in the world with whatever your future endeavors might be.
I hope Hicks didn't step down because of how underwhelmed he was by this offseason, and how underwhelmed he's been by Walsh. I don't think that's the main reason, but I think it's been a determining factor based on some tweets/posts
Thank you for everything Hicks. Crazy to think I've been here since I was 15 (8 years). Back then I thought EVERY team had forums like this. Then I realized oh how wrong I was, and how lucky we were to have this community.
Good luck on the next endeavor.
Edit- oh, and add me to the 'Pacer Nation' fan club.
And also would LOVE to take a swing on a new logo, whenever that times comes around

Thanks Hicks for all you have done to make PD a quality fan forum. There are few team dedicated fan forums that match the quality of PD and part of that is due to Hicks work.
Just to throw out some suggestions, besides Pacers Nation, for the renaming of PD what about
- Gold Swagger?
- Pacers Refresh
- Pacers Ponder
- Also, Pacers Domain (or something that starts with a "D")
If Hicks is retaining the domain name Pacers Digest I am curious to see what he has in the works for it.

Well Hicks that is the lamest way of going PFFL I have ever seen. I gotta say sir, you built one helluva site here and you should justly be proud. Best of luck in all that you do....please keep posting and showing up for pizza/Pacer talk.
As to Shade.......I hope there is a firm order of succession in place just in case you decide to do a header out of the balcony when the draft goes bad for you. Mods, take note of his suicidal tendencies and keep a close watch on him.
If you get to thinkin’ you’re a person of some influence, try orderin’ somebody else’s dog around..
There's no doubt he is either on his way to Orlando to get DwightHoward traded to Indiana for Hansbrough... (we need a backup PF) OR... He's off to NYC to become Special Assistant to Commissioner Stern in charge of wieldi ng the " For Basketball Reasons..." stamp...
Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.
Thank you Hicks for all your hard work. PD is by far the best site to not only talk Pacers on, but to talk basketball on. I hope you stick around and post still, you are always a voice of reason on here that I find myself agreeing with more often than not.
Also, enjoy the season tickets!
sidenote, I also approve the PacersNation movement. And I also can't wait to see what rel would come up with for a logo.
Thanks Hicks for making this the #1
blogforum on the intertubes.
With the #3 pick in the 2015 draft, your Indiana Pacers!
My thanks to Hicks for all of his hard work over the years in maintaining a quality site. And my thanks to Shade, in advance, for his upcoming efforts in keeping the legacy going.
Le roi est mort, vive le roi.
Hicks, you always were my favorite poster. In fact, without you I wouldn't be posting today. Tip of the cap to you and good luck in the future.
So long and thanks for all the fish!
"But, first, let us now praise famous moments, because something happened Tuesday night in Indianapolis that you can watch a lifetime’s worth of professional basketball and never see again. There was a brief, and very decisive, and altogether unprecedented, outburst of genuine officiating, and it was directed at the best player in the world, and that, my dear young person, simply is not done."

Lol at the people that are talking like Hicks is dying or something
Do we know if he is going to keep posting? and now that Shade is in charge are they going to open an special side to talk about J Bayless? And are they going to change the site name to www.JarrydBaylessisthenextsuperstar.com?
