Welcome to the Hardcore Husky Forums. Folks who are well-known in Cyberland and not that dumb.
I just wandered over to ShaggyTexas for the first time in ages
Their former owner helped me with lots of advice when I was creating Hardcore Husky back in 2012.
I just went over there to see if they were doing anything innovative or new. I was shocked to see that their board is dead. Nothing going on at all.
(Still not sure what happened but this is a good read, apparently scat gifs were involved)
I think there was a lack of realization that Shaggy was a collection of ~500-1,000 friends and acquaintances that generated content that occasionally garnered national attention, but was mostly an excuse to hide from wives, kids, and work and occasionally get together to eat, drink, and play casual sports. If the site generated positive cash flow off of that, great, but positive cash flow wasn't the main goal of Shaggy.
1. Charlie Strong making Texas Longhorns football irrelevant.
2. ShaggyBevo poster Thujone ending his hilarious MSPaint artistry.
There was a legendary photoshop thread from the time Lamichal James cried at Disney's space mountain
My favorite, which I haven't been able to find in a few years, is the one where they photoshopped him crying in the spinning tea cup ride.
Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!
The Shag (& Land Thieves) died when an investor sued and won. Supposedly when asked in court how much his website was worth the site creator said “about tree fiddy.” Surly Texas was launched by a friend of the Shaggy Bevo guy the same time the servers were being handed over to the successful plaintiff.
