prepare for posts like you haven't seen since the days of CC:
And spelling like I haven't seen since Michigan State week.
Voting is back up too!
Edit: Though the front page is still wack.
Seriously, do you know how hard it's been to read the board without people being able to vote? Very tough to read a topic with 200+ posts and pick out what's good without reading each and every one.
Yeah, I found myself reading a lot more comments I wish I hadn't.
Of voting ability that I may go on a personal pos-bang fest for anyone who took the effort to keep the site going via their iPhone during the quarantine. Thank you, Blog-Warriors! You helped me keep semi-sane in the last 48 hours!
I can spell, honest I can.
Negged for your edits. C'mon man, you're better than that.
This will NEVER EVER get old.
This was my picture on facebook for a few days.
GO STAEE GO!
The guy next to me at the Gator Bowl said this car's owner lived in his house. As if anything could make that day worse, and then this happened...
How many wins will it take for RR to come back?
7 as long as one of those wins is against MSU or OSU. And be competative in a bowl game.
What are our cupboards like right now?
I can return to normal life!
I think most of us are on emotional life support at this point.
Also, prepare to be negged if you're not ardently opposed to Hoke.
(not a threat; rather, from having been on the receiving end...)
I was going to head back and find some of the posts that pissed me off the past few days.
My MGoPoints are buring a hole in my MGoPocket.
That was the first thing I did.
Take that anonymous internet user!
that guy deserves some serious +1 action
+1! Back to the pile everybody! Pos gangbang!
Thank God (Brian?). I had resolved myself to doing real "work" while at work the last few days instead of reading endless discussions on here. Glad to have order finally restored.
I have been in Mgoblog purgatory. My point total is not indicative of how I am as a poster. I am just glad that my work productivity will return to normal.
I will pray for your MGoSoul to ascend into MGoHeaven. In the meantime...keep posting!
I think we are all a little brain dead because of the last couple days. I barely have enough energy to finish this senten
No more insane usage of the app... *sigh*
elaydin... we, who have app, cannot thank you enough for maintaining log-in connectivity.
I continue to +1 you on sight.
I really had nothing to do with the fact that it worked, but it was nice that it did... posbang away
but you did develop the app and for that you should be applauded:
I would, but I can't install the app on my first-generation iPod Touch. I shall be filled with a furious envy-fueled rage until I upgrade to some kind of newer gadget (*shakes fist at barren wallet*).
you based on the assumption that you have a Droid ap in the works.
droid app is being developed by a different board member. Can't remember whom, but it's in progress.
I didn't realize until the last few days how much work is involved in actually going into the Intzerwebb to track down all of this news-type journalistic substance.
MGoBlog truly is a gateway to knowledge, that of course, we all gorge and poison ourselves with... but nonetheless it's good to have it back.
20 mgopounds since Monday
Thank God, because without the validation/skepticism that comes with the ability to +/- posts, I was having a hard time sorting out what was crazy and what was not, and getting on with my day had become a nearly unbearable state of ambiguity.
I go back and wreak revenge on a buncha people. :)
omg i thought i was banned or something
We were hoping...
I've missed your famous photoshops. Can you treat us to one this fine afternoon?
I have a few in the works....probably tomorrow.
I was in the midst of conducting a survey of how many people use an iPhone, smartphone, etc. to post on message boards such as this one. 8 years of college down the drain!!
What an inconvienient truth!
Unfortunately that doesn't include yesterday. I'd be really curious to see how much higher it went.
I wonder what the record for a sport's blog is?
Judging by our results, the site is clearly lying about the job search. Just look at these charts.
Dizzam. Sweet MGoNumbers.
That's a crazy increase. Thanks for the info, I was wondering how astronomical it got.
I was wondering what the blast off looked like in terms of numbers. +1 to you, kind sir!
Brian needs to collect his check on the 'hits' revenue from the 4th and then DB can add a signing bonus for Jimmah.
And to think, with the site down my productivity at work had a similar spike... but will now return to normal
Wow. The site traffic tripled overnight. That is crazy!
exponentially less fun without the mgoboard
Not to sound sappy, but I really missed you guys over the past couple of days!! I almost switched to an iphone just so i could post.
OMG! Thanks Josher! I missed you too. You are so sweet
I love you too Lucy!
Miles cause he wins+MM / crazy+old+kinda SEC cheats
Hoke cause he safe+MM+made progress / old+not impressive background
Harbaugh cause he wins+MM+rock star / wins+MM+rock star+everybody else wants him
Various P people because young+are winning / not MM+why would they come here?
Now post the above threads in various formats 100 times...and there.. you.. go..
"Life not worth living now that RR is not the coach."
"DB having no coach within 24 hours = failure, even if he hires good coach."
Thank God regular posting is back.
Seriously made me realize how much I value this board as my one-stop-shop for all news Michigan related.
Was a royal pain in the ass the past couple days to have to scour the internet myself for Michigan news, rather than just go here where anything of note is collected in one convenient location.
Not tagged META.
like me who can't figure out how to get things to show in yellow on my posts, don't even try to post pictures let alone clips, and actually do not even know what the word cached means, why exactly could not log in the last two days, and who could log in, and why did it happen, and so on and so on?
Magic. Or specifically, a lack thereof.
I guess people using the iPhone app could still post, but everyone else could only read. This was done to keep the site up and running in case of breaking news. During times of emergency (like this week) the site gets overloaded with the crazies so its probably just easier for them to close it down temporarily.
Woot. Now I can try and remember those posts I've been meaning to upvote the last couple days.
Or at least I would if I could remember the last couple days. Thank you sweet alcohol.
I already got my first 503 error! *Sniff* It's like old times...
Is anyone else having trouble with the site? I can't upvote or downvote and when I'm looking at front-page articles the site thinks I'm not logged in--it shows "Login or register to post comments" instead of the voting stats at the end of each post. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Same here. Think it's largely an effect of the site getting major, major traffic these past couple of days.
for posting a new forum topic now? I finally reached 100 posts but still can't start my own thread. Oh the humanity!
