So this is the new site for now. There are several features I'm going to add this summer (ignore button, "like" posts, live stats, etc.) but I'm tired.

Well, this is exciting.  Great job Herve.

By: ziik (2,950 posts) - 5/21/2015 2:24:45 PM

Is this Duke Blue?

Thanks, Herve

By: herve (9,159 posts) - 5/21/2015 2:30:09 PM

Both the buff and blue are from the GW style guide.

By: THE DUDE (529 posts) - 5/21/2015 2:50:13 PM

Great job as always Herve.

Is the change in the place to type temporary?

By: Free Quebec (6,340 posts) - 5/21/2015 2:53:29 PM

Thanks Herve!

By: herve (9,159 posts) - 5/21/2015 2:54:34 PM

Not sure what "place to type" means, but this is pretty much it.

By: THE DUDE (529 posts) - 5/21/2015 2:58:49 PM

(The box in which one types content) 

Great stuff, thank you Herve!

By: herve (9,159 posts) - 5/21/2015 3:00:04 PM

It is not appearing correctly for you? You are obviously able to type in it so it works. Anything specific?

By: THE DUDE (529 posts) - 5/21/2015 3:04:56 PM

Yep, works just fine Herve, thank you.

The 2 changes I've noticed are that the content box in which to type is now quite a bit smaller and that its spaced below a few old threads?

By: herve (9,159 posts) - 5/21/2015 3:16:12 PM

The "old threads" are the related threads to whatever you are looking at the size is deliberately smaller to try and keep manifestos to a minimum. However the box will scroll nearly forever.

By: THE DUDE (529 posts) - 5/21/2015 3:22:09 PM

Gotcha, wonderful stuff Herve.  (A user's board name seems to appears now as a default entry, without having to type each time, great addition as well.)

Your efforts here do a fantastic job helping foster and enhance GW fans passion, its is tremendously appreciated. 

By: ziik (2,950 posts) - 5/21/2015 3:29:03 PM

Yes, the user name does appear. Who gets "Blue Seats?" 

Damn, I am sick of the BS chatter. (I sold him a couple of shirts, so I know I met him. But, cannot recall the guy.)

This is a wonderful sute, Herve. Heck, it always has been.

Thanks for the hard work Herve. Felt a little "too soon" though to see a banner image of Kethan right when I open the page!

By: herve (9,159 posts) - 5/21/2015 3:53:50 PM

Keep refreshing and you'll get a new banner most everytime. There are some hilarious court shots from after the Dayton game winner which sometimes come up.

By: THE DUDE (529 posts) - 5/21/2015 4:04:05 PM

Herve, 2 favs are in fact:

1) The indeed hilarious post Dayton court rush, Togas!

2) The old black and White team photo that looks like its from WW1

By: herve (9,159 posts) - 5/21/2015 4:06:13 PM

For other users of the Android app, the app will probably not entirely be up-to-date until Monday as it needs to be converted to use the same "stuff" as the new site.

By: Omar Comin' (555 posts) - 5/21/2015 4:11:21 PM

Congratulations and nice work, Herve. Like the increased white space, makes some of the more self-indulgent posts easier to skim rather than just ignore. I might actually stop ignoring some of you clowns.

By: Mentzinger (3,646 posts) - 5/21/2015 4:54:06 PM

Thanks Herve! 

By: Goo Colonials Go (68 posts) - 5/21/2015 5:00:37 PM

Awesome stuff, Herve! Many thanks for your dedication to the board. Love the "latest" feature under the recruits tab in the header. 

By: Mentzinger (3,646 posts) - 5/21/2015 5:01:32 PM

Thanks Herve! 

By: GW Alum Abroad (2,456 posts) - 5/21/2015 5:03:39 PM

All hail Herve!!!

In the ost name line, I got The Dude (using android on a tablet). other than that, the only other complaint is the absence of any arcade-type games on this site!

By: THE DUDE (529 posts) - 5/21/2015 5:08:54 PM

I got Goo Colonials Go as my last default.  Might be a bit of a kink, earlier it appeared to default to whatever name you had posted last, it might now be defaulting to whomever last posted period.

By: 2cents (32 posts) - 5/21/2015 5:17:14 PM

Looks great, Herve. Many thanks. However, I do most of my browsing on iPhone, and none of the threads appear on the left hand side. Just an FYI.  Thanks again. It really looks super otherwise!  

By: Me (138 posts) - 5/21/2015 5:18:53 PM

Site looks good, really nice on mobile... but I am unable to change the threads on my iPhone

No video games????

By: 2cents (32 posts) - 5/21/2015 5:48:53 PM

Apparently there's also an echo echo echo. Sorry about the earlier double post post post. 

By: The Buffaroos (7 posts) - 5/21/2015 5:49:37 PM

Thanks for all the hard work. A few minor, uninvited style critiques, meant entirely as constructive feedback. Any thought to bold the text on the menus and list of threads? Kind of hard to read. Also, I miss the total number of replies posted for each thread. Made it easy to tell which threads were really taking off, and which ones were pretty stale. Either way, will continue to enjoy your great hangout for GW fans. Thanks again.

By: herve (9,159 posts) - 5/21/2015 5:57:54 PM

The threads shift up or down depending upon the last time they were updated. So the items at the top are the most recently updated.

By: The Other MG (69 posts) - 5/21/2015 6:22:08 PM

Thanks, Herve, for the update, the diligence, and the commitment.

By: kaj (51 posts) - 5/21/2015 6:36:21 PM

Great work as usual, herve.

By: Rich Maier (17 posts) - 5/21/2015 7:36:09 PM

thanks Herve!

By: doug sandels (783 posts) - 5/21/2015 8:46:58 PM

Looking good, herve.  Thanks for continuing to do all that voodoo that you do so well.

By: ziik (2,950 posts) - 5/21/2015 8:55:21 PM

Few Internet basketball sites would include references like yours, Doug. Nice to see it. Herve seems to bring the best.

By: Shooter (249 posts) - 5/22/2015 6:55:34 AM

Great Job Herve!!!  

Not a criticism, just an have some 404 errors for file references that are not found.  Not sure if they are needed or will affect the functionality of the site.

Look at it in Chrome in the debugger and you'll see the files referenced.  Hope this helps.

Thanks Herve

By: herve (9,159 posts) - 5/22/2015 7:43:53 AM

Thanks shooter! Missed those errors (obviously) which have now been corrected.

By: GW Fan (509 posts) - 5/22/2015 8:21:45 AM

Thanks for all you do Herve! The new features you noted above sound great. One thing I've noticed viewing with an iPhone is no longer being able to zoom in on text. Not sure if anyone has mentioned this yet. Thx again. 

By: notta hater (2,492 posts) - 5/22/2015 8:27:53 AM

nice. BTW, how do you have time for this?

By: NJ Colonial (1,980 posts) - 5/22/2015 12:47:19 PM

Great new site herve, thanks!  But PLEASE change the blue color to Dark Blue or Navy Blue - GW's true school colors.  This is noted in the style guide, where the GW Athletic Dept. was accommodated to use the university's traditional (and official) Buff & (Navy) Blue instead of the various shades thought up by the people who designed the new logo and graphic identity system,.  Navy Blue and Buff - the universityl colors as well as General Washington's uniform colors!

Great job Herve!

By: Bigfan (2,829 posts) - 5/22/2015 2:20:02 PM

Thank you for everything you do for us and GW basketball, Herve!

By: Class o 70 (10 posts) - 5/22/2015 2:30:02 PM

Love it!!

By: herve (9,159 posts) - 5/22/2015 3:06:23 PM

I'll work on the color change.

By: squid (1,510 posts) - 5/22/2015 3:58:50 PM

This is awesome, thanks! One suggestion, could you make the content area wider? For me the banner is the full window but the actual content area is maybe half the screen.

By: BC (1,645 posts) - 5/22/2015 5:57:16 PM

Herve, I tried CHAT but I didn't seem to get any response.   It that expected?

By: Cutis (243 posts) - 5/22/2015 6:20:34 PM

The site is outstanding. The top scenes of games ,players and fans are a terrific features. I would keep the blue color. Nay Sayers would have voiced a desire for any color change regardless of what was selected.Blue offers strength and power. First choices in colors and wives are usually the best choices.Stand  pat and be proud.

By: Tennessee Colonial (1,179 posts) - 5/22/2015 6:21:27 PM

Good Job!

By: herve (9,159 posts) - 5/22/2015 9:39:20 PM

Still working on chat. It'll be ready by the time the season starts...and should be less buggy.

Thanks Herve!  U Da Man!
