[> [> [> [> Subject: I think the problem is really with USB mods. Qban, Pageant Stacey, Christi and pageantrella. They clearly do not have technical skills to maintain this message board up to date, let alone attract new posters. They refuse to leave their mod positions due to 3 of them being involved in the pageant industry. Many regular posters, with technical skills and good knowledge of industry would EASILY restore the prestige of this message board. As of now, Mr USB is redundant, keep it in the facebook group, we don't want it here.

Those first 4 or 5 Mr USB contests were a lot of fun mainly because it gave us a chance to know some people who we interacted with daily (whether they won or not): JayBay, ICEMAN, Sucker4SilverGowns, Qban, MoNkayMaN, etc. For whatever reason, the board no longer has that sort of community, so the contest makes less sense: anyone who enters is inevitably going to seem like a "hit and run" candidate because, in a way, we are all "hit and run" posters these days.

[> Subject: I think Mr. USB stopped being fun a few years back. I seem to recall there was some drama when Mr. USB was not invited to a party with board regulars in Las Vegas, because it was being hosted by a guy who lost. Poor sportsmanship and a cliqueish attitude is what I remember. Can anyone elaborate on this?

Ever since the famous voy shut down and the creation of the USB facebook page, it's certainly true that the voyforum has been much less active. I guess people enjoy not having trolls, porn, etc., and that's more easily controlled on a facebook page. And it's easier for people to post pics, etc. Most everyone who has run for Mr. USB in recent years have been and continue to be regular contributors to USB Facebook. I was very resistant to primarily using the FB page and not the Voy forum, but after time, I too can see the advantages and don't really blame others for enjoying a troll free, hatred free environment. i mean, just look at the some of the replies in this post. Sad, really, but, as a former Mr. USB myself, I know it comes with the territory and I accept it. Mr. USB always has been & continues to be a once a year event where we just have FUN with the guys who support pageantry (and many of us quite literally do work in pageantry) and have a little show-down not unlike "Homecoming King." It was eight years ago that I won (on my third attempt) and it continues to be a blessing. I've made great friends with the other Mr. USBs and believe it or not, we communicate with one another on a nearly daily basis. It's sort of like that "Forever Miss America" thing. I encourage any of the guys of pageantry to give it a try. We have a blast.

All of them would make a great addition to our group. Its silly for people to say there are no good options so we should just stop having Mr. USB. Just off the top of my head, I'm torn between six guys who are probably running for it this year. And I also agree becoming part of this brotherhood has been the best part. Our daily chats brighten my day, and I love keeping up with everyone.

[> Subject: I really enjoy the Mr. USB contest! It's nice getting to know the contestants and why they love pageants. I know last year the top three campaigned strongly on this board, and if there were nine contestants in total, then it pays to campaign on this board as well. I suppose the trolls will always be around because there is always negative and positive people in pageantry just like in life. I don't let the trolls bother me and I hope all the the Mr. USB contestants campaign on this board, because you will get a higher placement, as proven in last year's contest. I've only been on this board a few years and all the Mr. USB contests have been fun. So, I hope this year's contest will be just as fun!

Just because you choose not to join facebook group doesnt mean we cant talk about it here and there. Just scroll past the thread if you have such an issue with it.

So effectively you have a FB contest that has no real connection to this board, except in name only. Why would I be interested in a contest for guys that have conciously excluded us here, and that we cannot follow. They may represent a pageant community, they just chose not to include ours on this mesageboard.

Do not think that any of the Mister USB winners (including myself) are not on this board.... we are.... we may not choose to post because at times the response to any of us has been horrible.... and in my case, I don't personally care to bash anyone which is what has seemed to have happened these days. If this could become a respectful forum again then I think that many of us would return. Right now, FB group is thriving and there is an a amazing amount of dialogue, argument (respectful), and fun.... I have just put my farewell speech there. I am proud of USB and the community it has built but with everything there must be change and I hope that over the next year, this message board can find a really happy medium to be a respectful place to make comments, agree, disagree, debate and so forth..... but again to repeat what I first said... we are all here.

If s Mr. USB contest is not going to happen on the USB board it should not have the name. I'm not on Facebook. I haven't been for almost 10 years and I won't be going back. It is a cesspool and probably where democracy really went and died.

[> Subject: Here’s my issue with Mr. USB: it started off as a campy fun niche to help time pass during off pageant season. The guys were IN on the joke and silliness of it all. Until they weren’t. And now you hear former winners (in a creepy way) discuss their titles like it’s REAL titles that the ladies win. From advocacy to saying they represent the community and even once heard one of them talking about “making an appearance” Lord, the moment they started to take this too seriously was where I needed to tap out because to be part of delusion is frightening. Get a grip, gentlemen. This isn’t a real title and heck, as evident by the comments, many on USB don’t even find the contest compelling. Stop pretending like you won a noble peace prize. It’s a contest to see who has more family and friends to send an email with your name. That’s all. The whole “I got emotional during my crowning” for what? Telling all your relatives to send an email for a silly basement contest?

[> [> Subject: I'm not sorry that you are so offended by this contest. And I will say Mr. USB opened several doors for me in the pageant world. As a result I've judged several USA state pageants, and I've met so many incredible people in the pageant world that I would have not met had I not chosen to run for the title. I dont think any of us think its a "real" title like you imply. But it was definitely life changing. Not to mention I got a free trip to Las Vegas, recognized at a huge party for winning Mr. USB at the Welcome Party 2013, and now I'm part of a group of guys who I look up to immensely in the pageant world. We've all read your comments on why you dont like Mr. USB, but truthfully, all you have to do is scroll by. The next Mr. USB will be fantastic, considering the contestants. So despite your rhetoric, Mr. USB is alive and well, and here to stay. :)

Mr. USB Nominee - wow. I was warned about what this might be like, but what the hell, I'm brave and have thick skin. So, here goes. I've been a 'observer' of the Voy boards off and on over the years. The off years were when I felt we did more damage and bitching than we did 'good' for the girls who pay attention to our comments (sometimes painfully hurtful comments), etc. but since I am a Mr. USB 2018 (Facebook USB, VoyBoard USB or whatever other 'name' we think it should be given), I wanted to thank those of you who care about it, for caring about it. And to those who don't think it has a 'place' - thanks for sharing that too. Opinions are what pageantry and well, life, is all about. I did want to say that I would have been happy to campaign more here, if I thought folks really did care about it. You see, I'm a successful businessman. I was the CEO of the company that brought a revival to the swimsuit competition at Miss USA last year. I'm the guy who negotiated the site deal for IMG/MUO for Miss Teen USA to be hosted in Phoenix (where I've lived and built a life for over 2 decades.) I happen to have won a 'dude' title back when I was in college and literally was out of money for school - had it not been for that Mr. North America competition - I may not have graduated college. Pageantry in that case actually DID change my life, and for the better. Like so many of you on this Board, I have very strong opinions and a deep and abiding affection for this hobby (for some), sport (for some), lifestyle (for others.) I've run pageants (as a state director who has had to put his money - a lot of it - where his mouth was.) I've coached. I've prepped. I've produced state pageants for television. I've sponsored national and international competitions. I've done a considerable amount more than just lob grenades on Boards like this from the comfort of my iPad under a fake name. And I'm proud of that. Mr. USB? Fun stuff. Not meant to be life-changing (though some claim for them it has been.) For me? It's fun. Nothing more. Nothing less. But I do take seriously that we all have something to say, and should be able to without the nastiness. Not saying the USB Group on FB has all the answers. Not saying we don't slip up and forget our manners and mutual respect there too - it happens. But there's a ton less vitriol and tone there then there is here. Maybe we need to reintroduce some civilized dialogue to THIS Board and that will restore people's faith, confidence and interest in what we all have to say? Just maybe? Meant with total respect. Honestly. - Thom

[> Subject: Why are the photos and bios of the Mr. USB contestants not being put on this message board? I think USBMODSTACEY or Harrison Productions should put up the photos since they are the authors of this thread.

[> [> Subject: Just as you and I have posted, the Mr. USB contestants can post on here anytime. They have chosen not to. This board does not matter to them. This says everything we need to know about them and the contest. It should really be called Mr. USFB.
