Where is everyone? Haven't seen things this quiet here since a late era Hobbs offseason.

It's the new format.

I agree - the shift from version t-2 to the previous version t-1 was a downgrade, and the current switch to the version t is a disaster

 The swirling red balls, they mesmerize the reader

jae12/21/2016 2:41:30 PM

And you can't hide behind "Poster" any more.

Was wondering the same thing ...

     I think it looks and works great.  It might be a little different, but the added functions are cool.  It's also a little funky on my devices but so was the last version.  I especially like the thread stats, the like and block function, and the fact that IP addresses show.  I have been reading past threads, too, which are much easier to access. The only thing that this site is void of that I liked from the last two versions is the menu along the left hand side that had the most recent threads, as well as when the last post took place on those threads.  It helped to figure out which I have already read and which have new posts.   I think the lack of new posts has a little to do with a week between games as well.  Its easier to add photos too!

I like the format.

 

ziik12/21/2016 3:13:45 PM

I also am sick to my stomach, because of the red swirling balls.

just kidding.

I'd like to see a last time the thread was updated in the threads list.  But then I want everything.

Not a fan of the new layout

remember Herve does this out of his love for us and for the measly contributions he mainly doesn't get.

My antediluvian mind has trouble wrapping itself around almost any new technology, so I'm largely non-functional with the new system.   But anyway, hope everyoine has a terrific holiday season .. including the men and women hoopsters.

another new update and still no video games section.  Sad!

The new board look is going to take some getting used to.  I agree I miss the listing of threads on the left with the number of replies since we want to see how many NEW replies there havebeen since the last time we looked.

But I can now post from my Samsung.

invictus12/21/2016 4:58:37 PM

Feasible to get the thread counts back?

herve12/21/2016 5:17:53 PM

I can do thread counts on the drop-down and under the "more threads" link. Thread counts and last updated?

invictus12/21/2016 5:23:10 PM

I think that is a great idea.

ziik12/21/2016 5:27:21 PM

How about changing the red balls to blue? Most of us know them better.

cutis12/21/2016 5:38:18 PM

By not seeing several threads when first viewing the site , one is less inclined to respond to any thread. I believe this new format will result in less posting. Perhaps, this is a good thing.

2cents12/21/2016 6:17:18 PM

Thanks for the thread count, Herve! 

2cents12/21/2016 6:17:36 PM

AND BLUE balls!! Haha

tennessee colonial12/21/2016 6:41:10 PM

Are you going to keep all our historical comments and do a research paper on them? Just to go along with all the tapes and DVD's I have of past games. Like all the explectives of the , was it?  Fairfield, meltdown, or 17 point comeback against UNCW in the NCAA's, many years ago.  tongue-out

gw6912/21/2016 9:31:06 PM

Much prefer old version.Ill figure it out.

rkelley12/22/2016 1:58:39 AM

New layout is kinda hard to navigate, @Herve. Love your willingness to put work into this, respect it. Thank you. But I think the old layout with some improvements to responsiveness, duplicate requests, search, chat would've been a better way to go. Keep it simple.

jae12/22/2016 8:54:13 AM

The "More Threads" button seems to be a random time machine. Threads from years ago or threads that are recent but have no additional posts.

No one cares about my opinion, but I liked the old layout more. The old one had a more 'profesional' look and feel to it, if that makes any sense.

I can post from my phone. Haven't been able to do that before.

I like the new format. 

bigfan12/22/2016 4:18:14 PM

Hadn't been able to post from my phone before. Will try.

In the meantime, Ziik blue balls post for post of the year.

herve, lots of good stuff here. Please don't take the critics seriously. I have found that people post if they have something to say about basketball now. THat's the best present for the holidays that you can give. Thanks so very very much for the work here.

tuna can12/22/2016 6:25:41 PM

Bigfan, I was able to make the last post on my toaster oven. This one, I am doing on my bath mat.

What are the red balls? I don't see them.
