I'm going to miss people nagging about their posts getting negged.


Me too. Without negs how am I going to know who to hate? Oh well.

I'm going to miss negs because sometimes it helps to decide whether there is a sense to read long essays on this board.

hmm. good question. I don't see the media button anymore.

Actually Jedi started a thread for just this kind of stuff with the forum upgrade.

It appears as though the media tag was consolidated under the "Special BB Code" button (it is the top row, third from the left that looks like a photo -- right before the "Font" dropdown). Inside that pop-up you can select the media you wish to insert and then paste it in the corresponding box. It'll handle YouTube and a variety of other embedded media.

My only gripe is that there are no longer links to Red Wings stories from the various media sources. I liked having all the wings headlines in one place. Other than that I like it.

So here's a stupid question. Where do I find the area where I can change the skin from white to red? If someone could help me with this that would be great, thanks

Scroll to the bottom. In the lower left corner is a "change theme" button. Click on that. If you change to red, you won't be able to see it, but it will still be there if you hover over it.
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Very clean and modern, I love it. One thing I noticed, and I might be retarded, but is there not a way to jump to individual pages in the thread in the mobile version?

Site looks great, if you cant find out how to embed vids (like me) just use this:

Was just coming on to ask about that as I relied heavily on the stories to know what was going on as an out of state Wings fan. Would LOVE to have that back!!!! PLEASE!!!

Love the red theme.

I'm currently looking into a way to integrate this back. If I can get it to work correctly (and not slow down the site) what I'd like to do is create an "expand for news" tab that will push down the content of the page slightly and offer headlines from a variety of sources instead of just one. (For instance, four columns of different bullet lists of news/blog articles... but will be hidden unless you select the tab to expand/view it. It would also be able to be toggled back.)

However, this is VERY early in that stage. I'll see if I can get it working like I hope -- if not I'll have to shelf it for a while.
