Haha, give in to your instincts! What are my fake internet points for if not to provide a vessel for glorious sarcasm?

All I can say is be careful about tailgating at the golf course if you want to leave at a reasonable time. Went there for a night game, walked back to the car at the golf course immediately after the clock hit zeros and I waited in line to leave the course for legitimately 2 hours. The traffic cop stopping cars to let people out of the golf course left after like 30 minutes and then no one could get out after that. It was the worst.

There is an undeniable psychological effect for both the downvoter and the downvotee. Just look how people freak out about how toxic or homer the community is when the get two downvotes or something.

Look on the bright side. Despite the general incoherence and lack of value of this post, it is not OT. This could happen in season as well!

We've been alerted that a person named "Joseph Rodriguez" is representing himself as a member of the Michigan staff to HS prospects. There is no one by that name on our staff. This person has no affiliation w the Michigan softball program or Michigan Athletics. We don't know him.

I remember the good old days when we at least had CFB risk. Now all that I subsist on is WolverineHistorian youtube videos. Just trying to survive until September.

I would pick pizza or sandwich because of the variety of toppings you could apply. If that's cheating, I choose nachos.

Can we avoid actively wishing for someone to be murdered?

I believe that can happen if you take orders but then do something other than your orders. It messes up the counts for the strategy.

Can you imagine the fan reaction from those that shelled out for tickets?

They have a LOT of 5 stars. They have time on r/cfb or karma to get to 5 stars. Other fan bases may have more users on r/cfb for longer because they don't have an mgoblog equivalent to compete with it.

06/28/2018 - 11:11am If Florida takes first, it…

If Florida takes first, it will be in large part due to their superiority of star power. While their western assault strategy has paid dividends, it is also bolstered by their defense of the southeast. If you have no buffered territory, aggressive play just gets you the expected territories that your team's star power balances out to (you'll lose territories when you've over extended).

06/28/2018 - 11:07am The odds of eliminating a…

The odds of eliminating a team with as much star power as OSU or Wisconsin are very small, even if you sacrifice nearly all of your other territories to do so.

That's also assuming that no rankings change between now and the end of the recruiting cycle. It's still June, lots of changes to come.

Yep, someone leaked an post from a Nebraska mod about how they were going to kill their allies to win it for the Reds yesterday, then Nebraska users denied it vehemently, even going so far as to say it was a false statement to try to get their rogues to stop attacking allies (whaaat?). Then the next day they killed Stanford. Cold blooded. Actually, corn blooded.

The buttons seemed to have disappeared. But you can still use this LINK to post to the board.

Having a board-only app seems like an unnecessary bandaid.

1. Run the kickstarter to fund the app development.

2. Be involved with the development so that it works well with the site/servers (when there is time).

3. Put ads in the app in a not too annoying way.

4. ...

5. Profit.

He hasn't commented in almost a year (LINK).

You're right that the mechanics could be changed to be more like Risk, but it is not as trivial as you describe. First, there is no "margin of victory" in the way that a victor is currently decided. It is just a random selection of all the users weighted by star power. Second, there is no territory indicated from which an attack occurs. Sometimes you have multiple territories bordering that which you attack. Third, there are more than two teams involved in many battles for a single territory simultaneously.

These lists are even sillier than way-too-early preseason football rankings, but it serves as a fine point for launching discussion just the same. Founders is better than Bells, but Bells would be better if they actually bottled the best beers that they make.

IPAs have evolved a lot in recent years. They're not just bitter tongue decimating syrup bombs anymore.

Short's Brewery has very limited distribution. They're not going to win a voting contest. Soft Parade is a fine summer brew, but Dirty Blonde is very pedestrian and doesn't stand out over any other wheat ales you could find from a hundred breweries.

Not disagreeing because your logic is apt, but curious what breweries in Michigan you think deserve to be in the top 24 nationally?

If Engler steps down, who do they hire instead? My money is on Tom Anastos.

Does that work? Are you still in ketosis if you only do no-carb for 5 days at a time?

06/14/2018 - 3:57pm I don't know the gritty…

I don't know the gritty details that could point to cronyism at UM, but at least at the top, there is no comparison. Hiring Schlissel compared to Engler is polar opposite.

I'd love to have some notification if someone responds to my comment. That would be very helpful for facilitating conversation.

I second the Amazon Fire TV. I use it for Netflix, Amazon prime streaming, and PS Vue. Have never had one issue with the Fire TV.

You don't need a playstation to use PSVue, btw. It works on Amazon Fire TV and other devices as well.

Also contributing to lack of activity is:

1. The difficulty logging in ("Too many failed attempts" error).

2. Some people are still seeing the '90s version of the site because they haven't cleared cache. At least as of a couple days ago I know people that were still asking when the site would come up.

FWIW, I have to reset my password every day to log in on every device. Otherwise I get the same too many attempts error. Pretty annoying.

Because you can't see what other replies were made to that same comment. You could get 100 nearly identical replies spread out all over the thread.

It seems like only locally hosted images post now, so I had to download it and upload it here instead of linking it like the old-style.

It ends abruptly July 3rd, leader takes all.

No disrespect intended toward Seth, but I don't think the purpose of this post was to address users' issues with the new site. It looks almost like it was written for mgostaff and he shared it with the community at large to be helpful to those users who do write legit content in this method.

06/11/2018 - 2:33pm If I read a comment and…

If I read a comment and decide to reply to it, I want to know if someone else has already replied to it. What if they said the same exact thing? Then I'm just spamming the board with redundant nonsense. Or maybe someone else's comment makes more sense to reply to in the subthread rather than the first comment. With the quote style reply, there could be hundreds of replies elsewhere and there's no actual communication.

Brandon Sanderson was chosen to finish the series for a reason and that reason is he is an incredible fantasy writer. Check out his other stuff if you haven't already (start with the Mistborn trilogy).

Loved how Oathbringer had more blatant tie-ins to the other worlds. "Azure" was especially awesome.

Magician's Nephew could make a good prequel style movie, but Silver Chair and Horse and His Boy would not translate well to the big screen, imo. And Last Battle has such a bizarre ending that it would make a pretty weird movie also.
