We had a long relationship with Scout.com. However…
…through the years we became frustrated with their technology lagging way behind the state of the internet. For whatever reason, Scout would often ignore our pleas for improvements and changes.
When they forced the new theme on the users, which many did not like it at all, traffic slowly starting dropping off and after a couple of years traffic had dropped significantly. Scout noticed, and sadly, somewhat blamed Coogfans.com. They decided to part ways with us and hire someone who is running all the Houston area.
Scout also was cagey and vague about what they were going to do with the site, and literally booted everyone on June 1st without much warning. We knew they were going to be changing, but they didn’t give us any warning about how they were going to do it.
Scout will also NOT be donating to Cougar Pride.
We wish them well, however, now that Coogfans.com is a sole independent entity, we have much more latitude to create a better experience, respond to feedback and be better all the way around.
Thanks for continuing the journey with us.
