Site Feedback: What would you like to see more (and less) of?
 
Hey all...

In preparing the site for the upcoming season, I'd like to get some feedback from you. What do you guys like to see here? What would you like to see more of? What would you like to see less of. What do you wish that a site like this would do to keep you entertained during the offseason? What do you like about this site? What don't you like about this site? What do you think could be done to improve the site? What would you do if you were Taco John for a month? Or a year? And, no, The Seniorita is off limits.

Any feedback is appreciated. Whatever it's about... These questions, or ones that you would like to address yourself.

:coach: "We got a season coming up!"

Less drive-by-trolling would be a godsend but after surviving a year here and learning to tolerate Chef fan somewhat, I guess I'm more mellow towards the idiot post-and-run trollers... its the repeat offenders that bring nothing to the discussion that need a timeout box for a few days. Maybe a mini-ban of a week or two for the worst offenders?

How about a direct link from the General Discussion to the off-topics (Underground) area. Its like they say, out of sight, out of mind... and unfortuately, even though the off-topic area can be found from the main forum panel, its just death to post there because no one checks it. The Underground will have to be more visible come football time just so we can keep the inane posts off the main board when it gets football busy.

Other than that, the forum rocks... Is it football time yet?

I'd like to see less of all the Bronco fans. Who do these people think they are posting all over the board like this? I'm here to talk about Smarty Jones and his orange mane, I don't get all the football. The horse racing season doesn't end at the Belmont, folks.

I'll second this...the "Jibba Jabba" area deserves the direct link.

The only other thing I could suggest is my usual whine of bringing back the avatar sigs....I really miss those.

Rock Chalk 06-08-2004 07:36 AM

I'll third that Hogan. Get things back to the way they were before the season ended.

TheNextStep 06-08-2004 07:49 AM

Well, there's too much ****ing orange around here, for starters...

Rock Chalk 06-08-2004 07:50 AM

Bugger off you degenerate! :cuss:

watermock 06-08-2004 08:50 AM

I want LABF hung by his thumbs so we don't have to talk politics in the main forum. Crucifiction would be a second, more humane choice.

I also want my Diplomatic Immunity back.

TheNextStep 06-08-2004 08:54 AM

Yeah... when did mock's diplomatic immunity get revoked... and why did you give to LABF of all people?

RhymesayersDU 06-08-2004 08:54 AM

1) A section for porn, seriously.

2) Swifter bannings on trollers. Like last week when all the Chefs people came over. Now if a Chief fan comes over and says "I'm a chiefs fan, but I want to talk football with you guys" that is fine by me. Different perspectives and takes are awesome. But last week there were bullshiit topics like "Should Elway's face be carved into mt. rushmore" from Chiefs fans trying to be funny and those are annoying.

broncoholic 06-08-2004 08:57 AM

I'm pretty much just a lurker. I read the Mane everyday at "work." But, in a cube environment it would be nice if I could resize my window so I can just see the text of the posts. When I make my ie window smaller and scroll to the right to hide the avatars (they are a dead giveaway that I'm not working) I get half a screen of orange (also a dead giveway)....just a thought.

watermock 06-08-2004 09:00 AM

In all honesty, it's probably time to crank down the off topics, but I can't really tell you if anything is wrong.

My only thought might be that you further seperate the politics room and create an off topics room. I guess that's the underground.

I don't see any reason to split the board up any more.

One thing however, it seems hard to find the last post. When you click on last post, it brings you to the last post.

Read first unread you have to know what page your supposed to be on.

What am I doing wrong? Do I just go to page one and click first unread?

In the User CP, there are boxes you can check to "turn off" avatars, attachments, and sigs, broncoholic.

On the subject of direct links to the subforums, there is a drop menu box at the bottom of every page that will take one to those boards. :thumbsup:

This is a great site and really, very little is wrong with it.

Some of the obvious ones have been covered already.

I would say since we have a lot of people here that miss watching some games it would be great if we could get people who know what they're talking about to give in depth (per quarter, possibly per drive) analysis of O-Line, D-Line play, how our secondary is doing, who stood out etc. You know, exact info on how certain players are doing. This doesn't have to be live obviously but during the week threads/reviews would be great just to get a more intimate feel for how the team is doing.

broncoholic 06-08-2004 09:09 AM

That works...Thanks Blue!

I gave a play by play in teh chatroom during games last year.

I cant do it this year though.

The Titty bar report will be making its return.

Moon§hiner 06-08-2004 11:00 AM

I too give play by plays when I can...either in the chat room or on the game thread...just tune in on game day....hell, I hope one doesn't think that I got all these posts by saying something intelligent!... ;)

Tredici 06-08-2004 11:09 AM

Moonshiner, don't give anyone the idea that posts need to say something intelligent. We'd all be banned.

Are you still planning on more photoshop fun TJ? I always enjoy those.

MrBlond 06-08-2004 11:23 AM

How about a single forum open to any discussion? Politics, religion, sports, etc. No topic is off limits and none are relegated to the "back room". The members will be held accountable for spam and moderaters will enforce the established policies without bowing to the pressure of a few vocal BB terrorists.

And a beer tap.

BroncoMatt 06-08-2004 11:24 AM

More naked bronco cheerleaders, for real.

Definately more photoshop, those are what got me hooked on the site.

We already have an "anything goes" forum, MrBlond... the Horse's Butt. :P

On second thought I think you do qualify for handicapped parking course you would have to be smart enough to drive first which is unclear at this point.
