MGOBLOG 3.0 sticky for bugs

Submitted by Seth on August 23rd, 2018 at 10:15 PM

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.

After all of the despicableness going down in Columbus, I figured it's a good time to recognize a fellow Michigan Man and the work he is doing to help make a positive impact for others. Around the 4th of July a friend of mine told me about a company founded by a Ross School grad called Socks of the Brave. It is a new "Bold Sock" style company with military themes (think casual camo street and athletic socks) that provides donations to Service Members and Veterans through a Buy 1, Give 1 model.

So with as well as 3.0 has been received, I was pretty surprised to be served an ad from Human Element (which I believe is the company that did the new site).  Not only that, but the ad said something like "Did your brother's friend's nephew design your website... it shows!"    (Maybe that guy works there)

I'm curious how many users here would think "They did such a solid job with this transition, I'll hire them for my business!"

Almost out of OT time on the board, so get ye to Craigslist, Cars.com, Autotrader.com, or your car buying site of choice and find the best damn dream machine you can for under $10K. Last week we talked about democratizing HP, this week let's cap the price so that we can all equally look for steals.

Seems to be a lot of excitement and optimism around the upcoming season. So of course this got the Maizen side of my brain thinking; what event in Michigan sports history caused you the most disappointment or embarrassment as a fan (or even a player for some of you fortunate few)?

After what happened in Maryland recently, watching Sugar Shane get put back in the game after an obvious concussion is mine.  Made worse due to the lack of awareness and headset worn by Hoke.

 

OT: Received email from BrightCrowd about confirming my UM Diectory info

OT: Received email from BrightCrowd about confirming my UM Diectory info

Today I received a message from a company called BrightCrowd with the subject "Confirm your information in the Michigan directory".  

WARNING: THIS IS NOT THE MICHIGAN DIRECTORY. 

I looked at the website and they are essentially building a new social network, looks sort of like LinkedIn.  

Their website says they "partner" with universities but I don't know if they are partnered with UM or if they are just grabbing email addresses from the public directory. 

Couple things I found interesting from their site:
