The first bump of a diary post. I cosign on this general approach to tackling the site. As a forinstance: in the post about bug tracking yesterday there were a few folks posting links to SMQB and elsewhere; these should probably go on the message board now.
Okay people, so now that Brian has brought us MGoBlog 3.0 I see that many of us are confused about the difference between Diaries, and the MGoBoard, and comments, and why Ninja quite frequently wanders around pantless in public. I thought I'd make an attempt at clarifying some of the confusion, and throwing a couple of ideas out there and seeing what sticks.
So without further ado, I give you MGoComenting for Ridiculous Idiots Who Waste Too Much Time on This Damn Site Which (Amazingly Enough) Has Not Yet Rendered Us Unemployed.
So, here we are with all these options. Brian Cook, or the MGoMafiaDon as he may be called, has given us an updated site with options galore. What's a kinda sane person with an unhealthy obsession with all things Michigan to do? Here's one humble man's ideas:
- DIARIES: This is your own little area of MGoBlog. It gives you the ability to have your own tangential mini-blog, your own little cubby hole in the MGoUniverse to do with what you will. Want a spot to to display your photoshopped pictures of Charlie Weis making love to a chocolate cake? Go for it. Want a gallery of your favorite in-game pics? Here you go. A list of the recruits you'd most like to see us sign? That can go here too. Personally, I'll be using it as a place to list where Kate Beckinsale and I will register for wedding gifts when she finally leaves her husband and decides to become Ninja's sugar-momma. In related news, people can comment on your diary entries much like we can coment on Brian's posts. So feel free to tear down one man's dream of having a beatiful, intelligent woman support his MGoHabit at the bottom of this one. And I hope you feel good about yourself when I'm crying myslelf to sleep tonight.
- MGOBOARD: This is the spot for discussions, basically about anything you'd like. Think McGuffie lacks top-end speed and you'd like to get flamed for it? This is your spot. Interested in talking Tigers? Feel free to make a thread here. Wondering why we don't have a DE recruited yet? Yup, that's here too. I'd also propose a daily open thread in this section for those crack-adled regulars who have the attention span of a ferret on crystal meth. Someone could just start it as "Open thread for July 1st, 2008", etc. first thing in the AM. And luckily for those of you who think we're all nuts, you don't have to wade through it. (And you're right btw- we're all completely bat shit insane. But in a good way.)
- BRIAN'S POSTS: Obviously the reason we're all here, to get a daily and sometimes hourly fix on all things Wolverine. As I understand it the comments section after these posts will most likely be topic based. As Brian has said it's currently open, but the above format would give us the option to self-govern and let him do less babysitting and more digging into the important things in life, like what Mike Barwis had for breakfast today, or what Mike Barwis wore today, or when Mike Barwis will officially turn our 5'6" WRs into laser cannon toting T-Rex's with 4.3 speed and a two story vertical.
So, what think you MGoPeople? Like I said, I'm just throwing it out there to see what sticks.
