Points seemed to work for about five minutes early this week but quickly went back to the new norm, i.e. broken.

07/19/2018 - 10:24am Maybe?

Unless there is a delay in points being added/subtracted, I'm not seeing any change to your point total after upvoting.

Seth, since you're probably checking this thread periodically, just wanted to point out that the points system is broken again. You mentioned in the bug thread that it was fixed but unfortunately this is not the case.

I think Brian was too far down the Drupal rabbit hole to pull himself out and start over on a different platform.

To wit, someone negged the above post and yet my post total remains static. Making new posts also does nothing to change it.

Human Element sold you a bill of goods.

I don't think user points are working. I just upvoted several posts in this thread and then viewed the user pages of each poster and all had the same point total before and after.

If Texas Tech is 2-4 after playing TCU I could definitely see Kingsbury being shown the door. And even if they're like 4-2 if they lose Kansas on Homecoming he'll be fired the second the game is over for sure.

In the upper-right corner of the screen, it should say "Welcome ____" along with your point total (static for the past three weeks) and links to create a diary entry or create an mgoboard thread.

Here's a link in case that isn't showing up for you. For about a week it wasn't showing up for anyone so maybe you're one of the unlucky ones who still is having issues.

The URL in the address bar stays the same but when you hover over the numbers at the bottom of the Secondary Articles screen (after clicking "More Articles") you will see that each page number has its own unique URL. From there, just right-click one of the numbers, select "Copy link address" (I'm in Chrome, other browsers will have something similar) and paste that URL into your address bar. From there you can change the "page=X" variable to hone in on your desired time period.

For example: July 2008 stories start on the 939th page (URL of -- the first page is really the "0th" entry).

It's definitely 23 based on the picture. You can see that the second number curls to the left at the top and bottom with clear indication of no continuation on that left side (so can't be a 0 and 8 isn't eligible as a second number). Now compare what you're seeing on Johns's jersey to the "5" on Nunez's (looks completely different) and the "3" on Iggy's (looks exactly the same). Has to be 23.

(Obviously your link says it's 23 but I like using the picture as proof!)

UA was also rumored to have paid for Silvio De Sousa's services on Maryland's behalf before Jim Gatto swooped in and steered him to Kansas.

You're an OSU fan. Stop pretending you like Michigan.

From what I understand, the back-end was the main focus of the switch to be more stable and to haul over the massive amounts of data that needed to be migrated. That appears to be have been a success, which is obviously important since no one, from Brian to the lurkiest lurker wanted to start over again in terms of their contributions and content from way back on 6/30/2008 (which, BTW, happy 10 year anniversary to those mavericks).

HOWEVA, it appears the front-end did not get nearly enough attention throughout the process. I wasn't involved with the beta testing but I cannot imagine people interacted with this UI and said, "Yeah, it's good to go!" There are just so many things that seem completely at odds with common sense, from the massive banner to the huge tiles, the overabundance of white space and gigantic pictures that lead the front page stories before you even see the headline. These all seem like no-brainers and I haven't even gotten to the message board which is far, far less user-friendly and functional than before.

Oh well.

There appears to be a reason for that. When you attempt to visit you get the following message:

It seems Maizen has worn out his welcome again.

He's not using a scholarship so there's no "deal" -- this is low risk, high upside.

If this really has you that upset I suggest redefining the priorities in your life.

06/26/2018 - 9:30am You are very welcome, sir!

You are very welcome, sir!

Also, just realized I wrote "want to by" when I meant to write "want to be." Guess I didn't cross my fingers tight enough!

06/26/2018 - 9:26am Thank you and well done.


Thank you and well done.

I'd upvote your OP if that was, you know, possible. Expect to find yourself with many upvoted comments that would otherwise seem unspectacular as a show of appreciation. Just don't expect those upvotes to actually, you know, increase your point total.

Is there anything in this world that you don't shit on constantly?

Type in the word you want to by hyperlinked, in this case LINK

Highlight the word and click the chain icon

Paste in the desired URL and click Save

Finish your post and click Save

Cross your fingers and hope you didn't make any typos because you can't fix 'em!

Which is especially rich considering Franklin has openly whined (and incorrectly, according to all accused parties) about schools (specifically OSU, MSU, and UM) negatively recruiting PSU in the past.

My guess is the latter. Try reading it like this:

Sounds like 'crootin'!  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

URLs don't automatically turn into clickable links like they did in mgoblog 2.0 -- yet another casualty of the site "upgrade." To do that now you have to click the chain icon (third from the left, next to the italics icon) and enter in the desired URL.

Of course not, they were all just done as a favor to Harbaugh to make his offer sheet look better! You'd have to be a simpleton bozo to not know that! Haven't you ever heard of a blue chip ratio?!

06/24/2018 - 9:19pm This about right?


This about right?

*Michigan gets a commitment*

*Bluey runs to 11 Warriors*

*Bluey runs to mgoblog to tell everyone what OSU thinks*

Once again it's beyond sad that you think this to be some kind of biting insult.

I do have the slightest idea because I follow recruiting more closely than any of you bozos on this blog.

It's quite sad that you think this is an insult.
