I broke it out from the FAQ and added a bunch more recent bits. It is now available in the header under "About" or here:

Let me know if I've left anything out. Remember the point is to help integrate new readers into the community, not to create an exhaustive list of all the things people talk about on the boards.

I've thought about it a few times recently with all the new users I've seen pop up over the last couple months. It would be interesting to see a graph highlighting the volume of "new user" accounts created overlayed with the historical events.....RR, stretch gate, shitty season, Hoke hiring process, sugar bowl win, DB disaster, Harbaugh, etc...

I came around and hid in the weeds during the RR years and then finally created an account one drunk night when I thought I had something important to say. I spend admittedly too much time on here...mostly reading....but it just seems like there has been a huge increase in new users lately and thought it would be interesting to see how the Harbaugh era compares to the other events on the blog.

It would be interesting to see.  What tends to happen is they show up in droves before the season/after a coaching change, most leave once the novelty wears off, and a couple provide real insights.  One thing I do notice is that the expectations for discourse around here are a clear step above the Yahoo/MLive comment sections standard, and lots of the new users are shocked when "Gardner sucks!  He don't have no heart" gets negged to oblivion.  

I'd imagine that if Brian and co. did a query on his user table of people whose posting history lasted less than 3 months, he'd probably have about 2/3 of the entire MGoBlog community.

Is "HIJACK" a term in this glossary?  (Sorry to not just read it myself.)


In a picture of one of today's visitor I noticed something on the home jersey that I think a few of us will be happy about.  One less block "M" on the uniform.


Between that spot and the helmet bumper.  It was too much.  I'm a pants only kind of guy.

BKFinest and Raback as the former predicted Antony Zettel to Michigan and was negged to Bolivia after Zettel picked PSU and Raback before him predicted Demar Dorsey to Michigan and was pos banged after Dorsey picked Michigan over Florida.

You need to add "harbaugh" in its myriad usage. Noun, verb, adjective, adverb forms and visual connotations. Cross reference "khaki" and "guarantee a win" inter alia. HARBAUGH.

I'd add STAEE, partly because I think it's unclear to a lot of people and partly because I love that shit.

Actually, though, I'd like to propose an amendment to STAEE/Staee.  I think it should be "StAEE."  One of the special things about that photo is that the "t" is inexplicably not capitalized.
