OT: Let's Hear Your Unpopular Opinions

Submitted by Cereal Killer on June 7th, 2018 at 1:52 PM

Okay, I know I'm getting sent to Bolivia about 8 nanoseconds after I post this, but here goes.  I'm not trolling.  Absolutely for real.   I like Jemele Hill . . . 

AND

I think she's pretty attractive.

Got any unpopular opinions you are willing to share here?   

See you on the other side.

Is there a new website training program?  I can't find the new website.  If I try to bring up MGoBlog, all I get is a dancing Norwood and a bunch of links that don't work.  Instead, I have to go to Google, search for MGoBlog and then click on its link for MGoBoard.  Once there, if I click on oMGoBlog at the top of the page, I am back to a dancing Norwood and a bunch of links that don't work.  HELP!!!  PLEASE HELP!!!

You have clearly expressed the fact you are not good with change. 

Question for you. What are your expectation by continually posting your displeasure with the change? 

Brian & the team have been working at this for well over 18 months with an outside agency. He's not going to listen to a handful of people after only 48 hours and decide, gee, they are right, let's revert back to the old platform which had a lot of issues.

I know it is hard to accept, but given the overall volume of site traffic, the number of people complaining is pretty small.

I've seen several other people mention this and it's more of an annoyance than an actual issue, but swapping the Diaries and Message Board sections would make a lot of sense so you don't have to scroll down as far to see active topics off the main page. The Board is updated much more regularly and gets far more traffic (assuming based on post activity) than Diaries.

I've actually been to several other teams boards over the years for the excellent schadenfreude after a loss to us, and time and time again, as much shit as they dish, someone always complimented our board. Who knows now but I don't think it's all that bad. Take some time to get used to, like any change, but we'll live. But I'll be the first to admit. Embarrassing as this is, I totes fell for the temp faux blog, went straight to the MGoBlog FB page and flipped out. I know. I'm 12.

I'm not a fan of the new design as well and especially the board. Just feels very disorganized - the eyes don't know where to focus and it seems that the design goal was "as much white space as possible" but keep old design elements. The reverse type with/in the blue headers is just painful.

Also, get the SSL working - you use Cloudflare so you can do this for free.

Well, it sucks now, but I hope they're working on fixing some of the stuff. People have already talked about all the white space. And how it's not that easy to see who is replying to who.

Also, does commenting suck for everyone else because after I submit a comment it takes me to some random place in the comments and I have to go back to the board and to the post just to return it to normal?
