I plan on going to Ann Arbor for the football game this year with a few other recent alums to scratch off another B1G school from our list of schools we've been to. Unless our plans get mixed up and we end up just going to Northwestern we'll be there too. However, once we finish our football tour, we probably will travel to each B1G school for a basketball game. If you wanna share your recommendation for which cafe' to check out go ahead, I'll add it to my sticky note under things to check out on campus. I can always start a thread asking for advice and recommendations for my trip or ask my friend who went to Law school there to get more input as the time gets closer.
This sucks that I have to wait til I get 100 points before I can post something!!! I have something I want to talk about and get off my chest something about the Mich vs. Mich St. game at the Joe yesterday (Feb.2nd) that happened to my girlfriend and I. I just joined this blog site the day after the game to discuss it with you guys now I have to wait til I get more points...
I sincerely doubt it is worth its own thread, unless your girlfriend gave birth at Joe. If by some chance it is worth its own thread, someone will help you out.
It is worth a conversation, and I am interested if anything like this has ever happened to anyone else at a game. It really offended me the things that were said by Mich. St. fans.
Then put it in the thread from yesterday's game
Just as a general rule of thumb, if it's something you want to "get off your chest", it's definitely a good idea to think twice about posting it. A couple questions to ask yourself:
1) Is it repetitive? That is, is it something we've all experienced and discussed a thousand times before? We all have stories of bad behavior by opposing fan bases, and the topic has been brought up many times in the past.
2) Is it noteworthy? That is, does it bring something qualitatively (not merely quantitatively) new to the table? Take for an example, a study by a research foundation that indicates that OSU fans are statistically more likely to be meatheads. That's worth its thread, because it brings something new to the conversation.
In summary, one fan's tale of abuse isn't particularly noteworthy, unless something truly momentous happened. The typical internet adage "LURK MOAR" applies here; this community does come down harsh on "bad" threads, but the benefit of that is that you don't have to wade through seas of "Cool Story Bro" type posts to get the good stuff most of the time. Welcome and I hope you like it here!
I use a Mac (I use safari and chrome), and I have a glitch where anytime I try to access beyond page 1 of board topics, I see older blog posts, etc. Anything BUT actual board threads. Is there any fix to this?
first, you can click "recent" and that will let you scroll through pages sorted by most recent comments. The other thing that works is opening the second page in a new tab, just by right clicking and selecting "open in new tab".
Thanks for the help!
Sorry to ask this but if you want to block quote a statement, how do you do it? Not sure if you switch to plain text editor then add something else then switch back. Thanks.
I currently have 138 points and I am not seeing any arrows to upvote/downvote posts. Is there something wrong with me?
is a set of two arrows for threads and diary voting, and then every comment should have a scroll down list and a button that says "moderate" centered at the bottom of the comment. Are you seeing all of that or no?
No I am not seeing anything you are describing. And wow, Flamebait for asking a question on a frequently ask questions thread, ouch.
Interesting, PGB said the same thing with his new username yesterday. I'd try emailing Brian, this is above my paygrade.
I will try that, thanks for the help.
it's saying you have 73 points, and that usually comes around at 100.
Edit: On the page here it says 146. This is kind of confusing, actually.
Edit II: It doesn't look like you had any points given that might have expired or taken away, so I really have no idea what the discrepancy could be.
Yeah, I is confused. I will email Brian to see if the confusion can be remedied. Again, thanks for the help.
Just give him 150 points and see if he can post. Not like points matter.
Hi, My dilemma is this: I have a great true story about Trey Burke but being new here I cannot post it yet. I've been meaning to tell this story for months but now would be the perfect time. Would it be possible to send you my idea and if approved post it as soon a possible? I read M-Goblog every day but would never be a reguar poster or commenter. The list would really appreciate this story.
Link in the "How can I bold stuff, insert images, embed videos, etc?" FAQ above no longer works. In trying to find it, I noticed a bunchof old articles in the forums noting it was gone... but it's still here.
In my opinion, a link to the "META: Embed Refresher Course" article here would be helpful. I found an older one which ranked higher in my Google search but didn't work as it pre-dated the current software.
I've tried loading a few different photos for an avatar but none will load. I keep getting
- the selected file could not be copied
- failed to upload image, the pictures directory doesn't exist or isn't writable.
What file extension are you using? Could you possibly upload the picture to a different website like tinypic.com and then link it here to this thread? If so, I might be able to help you out.
Just trying to test out an embed feature:
Alright, why can't I embed a video to start at a specific time? I wanted to use a different video, but I figured this video would be a good one to test on.
Here's my embed code without the opening and closing arrows:
iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/v7Ic3g9Hn1U#t=23s" width="560"></iframe
Testing something out here:
The problem with your code is you are doing this #t=23s. Well that only works to post a youtube link that makes the video start at a certain time on the youtube page. If you want the embed link to work you have to do this:
<object width="560" height="315"><param name="movie" value="//www.youtube.com/v/v7Ic3g9Hn1U?version=3&hl=en_US&start=23"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="//www.youtube.com/v/v7Ic3g9Hn1U?version=3&hl=en_US&start=23" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="560" height="315" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>
That is the correct code to make an embed video start at whatever time you want.
Hey. I am a HUGE Michigan fan living in Tennessee. Does anyone here have a watchespn subscription they would be willing to let me use so i can watch michigan when they are on espn. I have a btn2go subscription by watchespn is unsupported by my dish network subscription. Anything would help! Thanks
Real basic question - can we send messages to other posters? Don't see a way to do so.
Either email Brian or get agreement with another poster to share emails and I'll set it up.
Trying to start a thread. Was able to paste in the title area, but not in the body.
Still can't paste in the body. Anyone else with this problem?
Copy whatever it is you want to copy. The when you want to paste it in the body of a new thread. Click in the body of the thread and then hold down ctrl or command. Ctrl for a windows, Command for a Mac and while you're holding that down hit V. It will paste whatever you copied into the body of the new thread.
Is there an easy way to see if another poster has replied to one of your posts? If not, can it be developed?
The only way I see to go back to an exchange I was having is to click on "My Account" and see the posts I made. When I click on them, they often take me to the beginning of the thread and not my post. That means sifting through multiple pages to find it, only to sometimes see there was no response.
I've been at other forums that have notifications when you have a reply, and a link embedded that takes you directly to the reply.
Is there a chance we could deal with the downvoting of old posts issue? Brian had mentioned that he wanted to address this. Some psycopath has just downvoted about 300 of my old posts in the service of some creepy vendetta. Any chance this can be fixed?
When I go to my account and see the list of my posts, sometimes when I click on one it takes me to it and sometimes it doesn't. Why is that? Does that only work for certain posts? Thanks!
If you're clicking through your recent posts list and the thread has been deleted, comments locked or something along those lines you won't be able to see that reply any more.
There could just be some kind of a glitch, but that would be the first thing I'd take a look at.
Oh, they're not missing, sorry for the confusion. What I meant was, when I go to "my account," it shows all of my posts as hyperlinks. When I click on the hyperlink, sometimes it takes me dierctly to my post in the thread, and sometimes it just takes me to the thread generally, and then in order to find my post, I have to scroll and scroll.
Please guide me the way to check my earning points. I am a new user here.
Now I can see my points. It was so simple and easy. :)
New User here. Testing out the embed. Summer workout highlights with jabril Peppers, Funchess and more!
