  1. Where were you sitting? I've heard the upper bowl is a bit tighter. I was in the lower and thought the seats were great. (I'm about 6'3".) The legroom was deeper than what I recall from the Joe, and the seat padding.... that was awesome. Pillows.
  2. Goal Horn Devastation

    I gotta say -- when you're in the arena the goalhorn sounded just fine to me. Very loud. Not sure how to explain why it is on the tv feed other than maybe that because the horn is digitized and going through the speakers that the tv broadcast is capable of muting the in-stadium audio feed a bit so it doesn't overpower the talking heads? Pure spitballing. But it definitely IS loud in the arena.
  3. Recent Korean Spammers

    To add: There was a software update last week that I performed and it seemed like the spammers showed up following that. Another update was released today which I just finished installing -- hopefully that takes care of it. If not, we'll be vigilant.

  9. The Streak is officially over

    What a weird feeling. Never had to NOT put the playoff wins counter up there. Earlier on this season I was on the "fire Blashill, trade everyone" train... I'm still on it. Time to break everything down and build it back up. I'd rather deal with a few down years for a proper rebuild with the right people in the front office than continue with half-measures as everything wilts.
  10. 2016-2017 Around The League

    Late to the party, busy with the holidays, but @kickazz has it right: no mega-threads. Just start individual ones.
  11. Interesting Vancouver Stat

    Posting threads for 'smaller items' is better than having no items at all. I wouldn't worry about it. Your feeling that you are 'cluttering up the forum' is the exact feeling I want to eliminate. People should feel free to post. If it gets crazy then I'll have to address it, but I really (really) don't see that being a problem.
  12. Interesting Vancouver Stat

    I'm well aware of that, but when the 1st page of the main discussion forum has topics on it that haven't seen a post in a week there's certainly room to break the discussions out. If it becomes a problem in the future then I'll address it then, but it certainly isn't one now.
  13. Interesting Vancouver Stat

    No need for mega threads as catch-alls. The forum isn't useful (and discourages new visitors from registering and commenting) if there's a half-dozen threads total with any regular activity. I'm putting a moratorium on the mega-threads.
  14. monthly schedule wallpaper?

    It's no problem at all. I'm also exploring ways to make organizing site downloads a bit better, and integrated better into the forums here (besides me just listing links in a post). I did that previously with the main site, but in lieu of that I'm looking at adding the "Downloads" add-on for the forum software. That way it'll be organized (and I can better track downloads to determine what's popular and not) and leaves options to add additional downloadable content. (Such as non-calendar wallpapers, mobile/tablet wallpapers, etc.)
  15. monthly schedule wallpaper?

    Sorry, I devoted pretty much all of my free time in the lead-up to the season to getting the forums upgraded and rebuilt. By the time it'd be ready October would be nearly over.
