OT: Seeking MGoHelp with Possible Relocation to Denver

OT: Seeking MGoHelp with Possible Relocation to Denver

Submitted by WichitanWolverine on June 8th, 2018 at 1:14 AM

A few years ago the board was extremely helpful when I was moving to CA (several members suggested my wife and I move to Claremont; we did and loved our time there). So I thought reaching out again might pay dividends.

Now we're considering moving to Denver. I'd most likely be working South of the city near the DTC. So I have some specific questions for the board:

I really like the new site. Much improved and like that it's a responsive site that works well on different screen formats.

Having said that, I can't find how to create a new MgoBoard post on my phone. On desktop, you just click the 'Post to MgoBoard' button but I don't see that on mobile. Also can't get into my user profile on mobile but I saw someone else already created a post for that.

From some things I have read, the Mobile Apps will not be updated. 

This is due to the site being optimized for viewing on Mobile devices.  

Sounds good - but seeing a few quirks.

My biggest one is that I can't seem to find the Diaries on a mobile device.

Am I blind? 

Post below any other quirks you have found that might be helpful to pass on to the team and HUEL!

Looks like the threads are being ordered by recent post time, not when they were posted, which is a big departure from the previous iteration of the MGoBoard.

I think I preferred the old ordering, as now little spats and sidebar conversations will keep threads at the top of the board far too long, and fewer threads are now shown on the side of the front page so this could quickly bury new info that comes out (like Walker and Crawford transferring). 

Do you guys prefer it like this or the old way?

It's very #OnBrand to ask about brands on the new MGoBlog, but after my 10 year old TV died I'm in the market for an upgrade. This buying guide has lots of good baseline info - like a calculator that gives you TV size relative to viewing distance.

But, being a store, they're going to try to sell whatever gets them the most money. So, who's got a 4K TV? What do you like about it? Would you buy the same model again?

My wife's dog (he came before me) had to be euthanized this past Friday. He'd been diagnosed with a brain tumor recently but he fell off a little faster than what we expected, which I think made things worse. Anyway, I'm worried about our other, younger dog, as he's seemed pretty mopey and down the last few days. Has anyone had similar recent experience? Did you do anything in particular to help your other pets? On a related question, how long did you wait until you got another pet?
