We are using this thread to collect all the (fixable) feedback for the new site in one spot, and if you're seeing it on the main page it means I've updated the OP content.

If you've noticed any bugs in the site post them here and if you have constructive criticism we very much appreciate it. The developers are also going to be in this thread. Even if we can't always respond, you're being heard.

UPDATE 8/23/2018:

We met at HUEL HQ today and worked through a lot of things.

The way I feel about "advanced" sports analytics is the way I feel about instant replay and cell phones: the world was generally better off without them. And yet, I plan to attend this event so I can make partial sense of all the gobblety-gook stats you millennials keep throwing out on this here discussion board to prove that somehow a pitcher with a 4-13 record is more valuable to his team than one with 20 wins. If an advanced metric can make signing Phil Coke seem like a good idea, well then we are all damned to hell. And what are all these kids doing on my lawn?

Since we've got a breath between football and basketball, I thought I'd bring back some folks favorite offseason topic for 1 week only.

So - the 2018 numbers are final and the industry is ready for a slight slowdown in 2019. The biggest thing in America is tall station wagons. Er, "Rugged Offroad SUVs". Er. Really they're tall wagons with black plastic near the wheels and faux roof racks to look taller... but I digress.

The holidays are officially over. Most of us are suddenly hit with a jolt of the real world. Or maybe we just need to unwind from the drunken craziness of Christmas. I know I'm not the only one.

Just opened a new bottle of Laphroaig. AFTER the family has left town, of course (so I don't have to share).

John Engler and company cancelled a $10 million Healing Assistance Fund. The fund was established a year ago to help with counseling Nassar's sexual abuse victims.

If you have followed this story you know that Engler and the BOT has been very callous towards the survivors.

There is a push to try to apply pressure to MSU to restore the fund.

As many of you know, I'm a pretty sentimental guy. This story appeared in my TL late last night, and I thought it was too heartwarming not to share. 

This is the story of Charles Barkley and an Iowa scientist, as told by the latter's daughter. Remember, no man is a failure who has friends...

Can we remove the reply button when trying to comment on a post? I don't know how many times I have hit reply instead of save only to have everything I typed deleted and then I have to start over. Super frustrating and I usually end up not commenting at all.

Wondering how many other people have this issue.

OT: Slow Morning Question: Best Way to Locate Rare Beer?

Submitted by WichitanWolverine on December 6th, 2018 at 9:47 AM

Slow morning so I thought I'd seek out some help. Long story short I'm looking to find some Pliny the Elder in the Denver area (via store, not restaurant). I have the Untappd and Taphunter apps but feel like it's still a crap shoot trying to locate some.

Does anyone have any better suggestions on how to find rare beers?

Presumably a byproduct of the Nassar scandal and all the other messes going on there.

This article has a box showing applications to all Big Ten schools.  I didn't realize Michigan received more applications than any other school in the conference - and that number jumped almost 10% in the past year. 65,684 high school seniors hope to become Wolverines this year.
