I haven't seen the admin controls here, but couldn't you get around this by just rotating the "home" location every few months?

06/22/2018 - 2:05pm That's right. Without an end…

That's right. Without an end date, I'm not sure the game would ever end. The smaller participants would eventually get run out, but with the number of people playing for Michigan, Nebraska, and Florida, those three teams would just continually swap territories. They can't be eliminated.

FYI, to add more detail to this: when I posted the previous comment, there were 4 image tiles across the top of the page, with the post titles bottom aligned with the tiles. Below the tiles were additional front-page articles.

Now, there are no tiles, and the layout is large thumbnail images with some article text below the image.

Again, not really a huge issue, but just confusing as to why it changes.

06/14/2018 - 9:45am I don't really have too many…

I don't really have too many complaints with the site. For an enhancement request, I'd like to see a different design for the comments/replies. It's hard to track who is replying to who. I think it's because of the white space, and not having a super clear delineation/nesting.

06/14/2018 - 9:35am Not sure if this is my…

Not sure if this is my browser settings, or adjustments being made by the development team, but it seems the format of the front page is different each time I visit the website. The variations I have noticed are:

  • Tiles aligned horizontally across the page. Each tile with a corresponding title to the blog post.
  • No tiles, but instead large pictures from the post, with just the title of the post below the picture.
  • A smaller picture from the post, with the first paragraph or so from the post appearing on the front page.

I have tried resizing my browser and haven't noticed any changes when doing that. I am using Chrome on Windows 8.

I did the same as Ken. After resetting my password, I haven't seen the error again.

It's a little bit wonky. This is what you have to do:

1. Click Update Sub Karma.
2. Click Update Rating twice.

You should then see all your stats update.

That said, the only karma that they count is your karma on CFB. So if you have 500 karma total, but not all of that was gained on the CFB subreddit, then you don't have 500 karma for the game. It's only your CFB karma.

Anyone else notice that the red territories in Michigan/northern Ohio look like an awkwardly dancing dinosaur?

Are there any students (or professionals) who have practice with rendering data from a database in a visually-consumable way? Not talking tables or charts; more graphics. If so, there is a project you could help with to assist the cause. Reply here if interested.

Using Chrome. I don't think I'm blocking cookies. I do use an adblocker, though I wouldn't expect that to matter here.

05/24/2018 - 2:07pm Authentication page

Whenever I go to the CFB Risk site, I hit an authentication page asking me if it's OK for CFB to access my Reddit account. Clicking Allow takes me past that screen, to a blank white screen. From there, I can access the site if I go back and click the link to launch again. But is there a way to suppress that confirmation page? Or to make it remember my choice?

I posted my Discord username at the bottom of the last thread, so just in case that got overlooked: Molesyn is my Discord username. I submit myself to the vetting!

05/09/2018 - 5:58pm Genuinely curious

I'm genuinely curious if this game will ever end. With end game criteria being one team remaining, this probably won't be resolved by the start of football season. Unless there reaches a point where there's a precipitous drop in involvement.

05/08/2018 - 10:20pm Varies

These days I usually travel with a team. So it's usually getting dinner and drinks after our meetings, then back to the hotel to do work to catch up on the things I missed during the day.

Amazon Prime is also clutch. Netflix too, especially that you can now download content ahead of time. Currently watching through The Americans on Prime.

Did I miss something about HUEL being replaced, or is Nexus something else entirely?

05/07/2018 - 2:14pm This is a great point. Maybe

This is a great point. Maybe the thinking is that most people will just lose interest once their team is eliminated, so not everyone will become part of "team chaos". That said, I wonder if there is anything in place to keep things balanced in case a large percentage of people from eliminated teams DO stay engaged with the team chaos.

04/29/2018 - 11:44pm YouTube TV

The only thing I'll add is that if you can get some friends/family on board to share the monthly cost, you can share with up to 6 people and have up to 3 active streams going at once.

04/15/2018 - 7:38am Bummer

My brother just came home from his deployment there a month ago. Just missed Brady.

04/02/2018 - 11:57pm I'm expecting no

If he can get drafted and make money, then he should. I think the only thing he could improve is his consistency shooting, as well as his defensive presence. He plays soft for being 6'11". Agreed with others though, if he stays next year's team will be very good.

04/02/2018 - 11:43pm Good memories

Was a great run. they went further than I really thought they would this year. That Villanova team was really good.

03/22/2018 - 9:42pm That was crazy

That was crazy

03/18/2018 - 12:30am YES!!!

YES!!!

03/15/2018 - 8:22am I am feeling very "meh" about

I am feeling very "meh" about the Tigers heading into this season. Really, the only things I'm hoping to see are: 

  • Improvement from Fulmer and Norris - for Fulmer, it's moreso maintaining what he did last year. Proving that wasn't a flash in the pan (I don't think it was). For Norris, it's more realizing his super high potential. If both these guys step up, we will have a very good top 2 SPs to build around.
  • A breakout year for Castellanos - I keep waiting for it to happen, and I think he's poised to finally have that happen this year. He made such excellent contact last year, and he hits so many line drives, it's just a matter of time before that starts being reflected in his stat line.
  • Can we find some reliable arms for the bullpen? That has been such a trainwreck for multiple years now, I just want to see 3 or 4 guys emerge as dependable pitchers here.

Anything above that will be gravy. But the Tigers will be bad this year.

03/14/2018 - 3:18pm And they missed on Nate

And they missed on Nate Solder, though I wouldn't have expected him to pick Cleveland over anywhere else. Browns o-line will be worse next year than last.

03/03/2018 - 12:57pm The good news

Is that he's managed to play at a really high level for 4 years.

The risk here is that heart stuff can be tricky and obviously serious. I hope for Mo's sake that this ends up being nothing serious and that he is able to pursue his dream.

03/01/2018 - 5:25pm He was clutch

I also hadn't realized he won B1G 6th man of the year. Nice final season for him. Hope UM makes a deep tourney run to see him off.

02/28/2018 - 3:05pm This sounds interesting.

02/17/2018 - 1:57pm Hard to tell

I think that article was satire, but not very well done.

02/11/2018 - 6:40pm I would second this

Haters like to say he's too conservative, but he has an easy plan to follow that, if you stick to it, will see your net worth grow. It's really just common sense though.

02/11/2018 - 6:35pm I use Mvelopes

I think it's similar to Every Dollar. There are lots of options out there, and generally they are free for you to create a budget and track it manually. Mvelopes and Every Dollar both have paid memberships that will give you the ability to link your bank/credit accounts to the app and more easily track expenses.

01/23/2018 - 2:29pm That's sort of where I'm

That's sort of where I'm leaning. I have the car paid off and have no plans or immediate need to replace it, so I intend to keep it for a while. And I'm not looking to add value, as much as I am trying to prevent future problems.

01/18/2018 - 12:56pm Meh

I don't get the outrage. I think he's a fine ref.

01/08/2018 - 3:05pm Honestly

The best thing is to just ignore it. It seems you have good intentions, so don't worry about it.

And go to bed.

01/04/2018 - 11:54am The thing that stands out to

The thing that stands out to me is his accuracy with the deep ball. Granted, this is a highlight so we don't know how many he under/overthrew, but I can't remember the last accurate deep ball I saw from a UM QB. They all either same way overthrown, or way underthrown.

01/04/2018 - 11:51am Right, I mean that's been the

Right, I mean that's been the scuttlebutt. I guess my point is more that we haven't seen any official reports of other changes within the staff, which makes this report rather odd. I would expect to see news first of the changes to existing staff members, followed by reports of replacements/new additions.

01/04/2018 - 11:41am Did I miss something? I know

Did I miss something? I know rumors have been floating around, but has Jay been officially demoted from coaching RBs?

01/02/2018 - 7:59pm You're not wrong

Jackson really hasn't done a good job coaching, but I also don't think anybody else would have done a better job given the hand he was dealt. Sometimes you're just set up to fail, and I think that's been Jackson's predicament the last two years. When Brown paired down the roster as far as he did, then set up a rookie to be the best QB on the roster...well, that's just a recipe for disaster. They still should have won some games, but I think the foundation is being set to start being good here soon. I've had to stop listening to the guys on 92.3 though. Two weeks ago, they were piling on Brown, making it seem obvious that he was so to blame and Jackson couldn't have done any better...then just today they're saying it wasn't all Brown's fault and Jackson needs to go. They're blowhards there.

01/02/2018 - 7:53pm Well

When you were quite literally the worst team in the NFL for at least a decade (thinking mid-90's until Lewis came in), consistent mediocrity with a playoff appearance here and there doesn't seem so bad.

I don't know, I generally think fanbases are pretty dumb when it comes to managers and such. Things start to go bad and people think they need to stand up to DEMAND CHANGE, thinking that will actually do anything productive. Sometimes change is good, sometimes not. Fanbases aren't really good at determining the good from the bad.

01/02/2018 - 10:14am I'll watch at least the first

I'll watch at least the first episode. I'm hoping it will give an inside look to the program, and that intrigues me. Even if it shows warts and/or dysfunction. If it's more of fluff material, then I probably wouldn't watch the rest.

01/02/2018 - 8:21am But how does the one 5 loss

But how does the one 5 loss season invalidate the two previous 10 win seasons? Nobody is saying they are OK with an 8-5 season, especially losing the games the way we did this year. But flipping out and saying "Harbaugh needs to go" is an irrational overreaction. The man has earned a long leash, and I will continue to wait for the turnaround.
