Just a quick note about what is going on here.

 

We have managed to move over all the posts from the old SMF forum. I am in the process of purging some of the older irrelevant threads, searching for links that might not go anywhere anymore, fixing bugs, making people happy, making the place more familiar, etc. I was hoping to have all of this in place before the move, but life just doesn't work that way. I encourage you to ask why things are the way they are. You may or may not like my answer, and that is if I even have an answer. Everyone is going to have something they don't like, but hopefully we can make the greatest number of people somewhat satisfied.

 

Members of the old forum should have access to what they did on the old one, if you can't get to something, let me know. There are still a few membergroups that I have to re-create and assign people to. New members might not see everything the old (sustaining) members can. I am working on a way for new members to become sustaining members. Membership has its privileges.

 

There are still a number of new items in the works, but I have to balance their introduction with the long list of things that is my ToDo list. I want to have the place roaring as we get closer to the new season. I took down the threads instructing new users how the forum features work. Needless to say, I have to work on a whole new set of those tutorials. If you think you've got the hang of how something works, you are welcome to post it here as a sticky. With the ability to embed images, a few screenshots would go a long way.

 

Just a note on some things that will make us visible to the Great Googs. Please carefully consider your Topic Title when starting a new post. This will facilitate searching later on. Also, you can include up to five Tags when starting a topic. As you start to type, some existing ones may pop up. Try to keep some kind of standard with these. For instance, don't tag something as DW. Use Double Wing instead. And if you are starting a topic about Defensive End play, a tag of DE is not going to help you come search time. Trust me.

 

As for Personal Messages, if you get an email saying you have a new message, use the Conversation Link in the email to reply to that message. Do not reply to the email itself. It will not get to your intended recipient. It may go to my dog instead.

 

Have fun, play nice with one another, don't take offense where none is intended, hug your spouse and children, say your prayers, and lastly, be the best hulkster coach you can for your players - they deserve it.

When I post it buffers. Then I get a gateway 504 error. Then I come back and my post is posted.

Why can I delete or edit some posts but not others? My last post didn't error.

When I expand a section to show all topics can we show 50 topics rather than 10? Faster skimming.

Ok...figured it out...its like ProBoards. You cant edit or delete once you leave the exact page you posted on.  So....pretty lame.  Best we all be happy with our thoughts  the first time. 😎  This coming from the king of typos. 

Also what is ....Making Coaches Players Deserve....? Clunky. Odd. Forgettable.  Maybe its me. If JJ wont let DC use his saying.....do something way different. Just a thought. 

DumCoach....its whats for Dinner. 🙃

Love the subscribe and @mahonz function. Something I really miss about Delphi. 

Is there a link to the DumCoach Facebook page or Twitter account? 

I get a lot of notifications on FB from Dumcoach. Whoever is working that....its working. Thanks!

I like how you can quote all or quick quote sections or multiple sections easy. Huge pain in the butt on Simple Machines. Im assuming it will do the same thing across different Threads.

  • I may make background a little darker, but the people spoke and this is what they liked
  • Online Members now appear at the bottom of the page
  • You should be able to see who liked a post. Check out the first one in this thread
  • PM me for access to old PMs
  • Recent topics increased to 50
  • May increase the editing time frame, but not to infinity
  • Bad Gateway errors are pissing me off still
  • Same with the messed up little messages that pop up in the upper right corner.
  • @bdjackson is working the Social Media angle and doing a great job.
  • He is announcing the site to the world today by way of Gumby's article.
  • I will put links back to our SM soon.
  • Still lots to do - leave note about issues in the Site Feedback section or PM me.
  • I have three more websites to migrate to the new server by Monday and then I can refocus my efforts here.

Don't cross my path.
