I take it the Mane will be in full crash mode. Any way out of it? Kill the avatars? Limit posters? Kind of a shame if we get to one of the biggest days in recent Broncos' history and can't talk about it. ???

I won't be on so there is one less poster. I will be at the first tailgate of the season for the CU spring game.

Very good point Ro. You should PM TJ and ask him that question. There should be a draft day plan.

Shut off avatars & sigs

registered members only

archive all other threads and replace after the draft

delete meaningless threads

turn off HTML

I'm sure guys like Alec have other ideas too.

you and i (as well as everyone else) know that there is zero chance of the Mane being up and operational come Saturday...esp when we make our picks...

heck i'm keeping my fingers crossed for Sunday...

with that said, it will still be fun on Monday going back and forth with debates on on the Mane, on how we did...

i stay loyal...down or not down, i am committed to the Mane...

There's got to be a way to keep it up we had over 800 posters at one time on here and that was 3 versions ago.

Use chat.

Merge as many of the "OMG, TEH BRONCOS CAN PISS OFF, WORST DRAFT EVER, OUR FRANCHISE IS RUINED, FIRE MCDUMMY" threads as soon as they pop up.

Maybe make an "official" thread for each pick so we don't get 200 new threads on who we pick.

A couple of my thoughts.

That is good. Is it possible to let mods only start new threads?

I'd be willing to accept the responsibility of starting all the new thread. The down side is I wont be around this weekend you will have to wait till Monday. The good news is that should help keep us from crashing.

24 hour ban of all divisional teams fans that come here (crazy, Bob, etc).

I am not sure if it would help the server or not but I would enjoy it.

When we give the Chiefs both our 1st rounders for Sanchez, there will be total mayhem. I personaly expect that the only safe place to be in Colorado over the weekend will be NORAD.

What's the over/under on number of threads entitled [Insert Username here]'s take on the draft? Like their opinion is just too good to get put on the prevailing draft thread.

I understand that people want to feel important, but damn....we don't need a new thread for each person that feels slighted because their post wasn't good enough to get a response in the larger, active thread(s).

I vote that anyone that starts said thread earns a timeout.

Remember that people when you get all pissed this weekend. Oh and trust me ye will be pissed about at least 2 picks.

Oh wow. I loved those spring games. I even traveled with my father to Ft. Collins for the Green & Gold game. He was a graduate of CSU. My heart and diploma is all CU.

I gather that something bad happens here when the draft is underway. I've never experienced any problems logging on here. What changes with draft day?

Sorry if it's a dumb question. It's just something good to know.

I will be killing the avatars and the sigs, and limiting the board registrations so only registered members can participate. Hopefully that will help.

The best thing to do is open a chat window during the event. That way, even if the board crashes, you'll be connected.
