As to the beta testing; I think they gave the old hamsters a new task to keep them busy. Nothing else makes much sense. 

07/18/2018 - 10:10am On the white space; I…

On the white space; I specifically avoid this site at night for exactly that reason. I'm trying to relax my brain, not wake it back up. 

07/18/2018 - 10:09am It's "not great yet" is…

It's "not great yet" is being just a wee bit charitable. You sit on the fence too much, and equivocate too much, and you are in the distinct minority regarding your opinion. The masses here have made their viewpoints heard, rather loudly, and have largely been ignored. I would call that a lack of care, on Brian's part. Seth has at least been somewhat responsive. If Brian can't be bothered to pipe in on the board that essentially created his livelihood, I'd call that a lack of caring. Optics matter. 

Further, the few bugs that the old site had are nothing in comparison to what we have here today. I have very little faith that the issues will be fixed prior to the season, there are so many things to fix, and that's without even getting into the awful layout. It's bad. It's okay to say it. 

07/17/2018 - 9:21pm I don't know. I just don't…

I don't know. I just don't like the new site, like, at all. I've been stopping in a couple times a week, and haven't been staying long either. Feels bad, man. I really would just wish for the old site back, but here we are. 

07/11/2018 - 5:57pm I don't think most people…

I don't think most people care enough to go through that trouble. I certainly don't. 

07/04/2018 - 12:45pm Jesus. Fucking. Christ. 

Jesus. Fucking. Christ. 

You took it there. You guys are complete clowns, and borderline cult members at this point. There is nothing that can be said at this point to anyone who is dug in like "you people" seem to be. So where do we go from here? Discourse has become completely dishonest in every conceivable way, in order to seemingly "win" the argument to your side. This is happening across the board, left and right, but one side is taking it to a very new and very dangerous extreme. Which side is that, now? So again, where do we go from here? 

I'd posit that most of "you people" have become brainwashed at this stage. I really believe that, I've witnessed it first hand (as have most of us, I'd think). When you only listen to thing that fit your world view, and immediately shut out everything else as noise, or "the other", how can anything work itself out? How can a society grow? 

I don't know why the fuck I'm writing this here, to someone making the statement that you did. But here I am. I can't comprehend how you guys can support this "man". It's crazy. It's scary. 

06/27/2018 - 8:44am Dig up, stupid! 

Dig up, stupid! 

06/26/2018 - 2:18pm You make some seriously…

You make some seriously ignorant comments when trying to "burn" another school. Look in the mirror, dude. What have we won recently? At least they have played in a title game recently. Why is it so difficult for you to be intellectually honest? You make yourself, and to a far lesser extent-our fanbase- look stupid when you make dumb arguments like this. Stop it, please. 

06/26/2018 - 9:50am This place has really gone…

This place has really gone to shit, and I don't say that lightly. I can barely tolerate even reading the board these days, and that's on a good day. 

06/21/2018 - 11:38am You'll never get it. 

You'll never get it. 

06/19/2018 - 9:55am That goddamned man-ass ad…

That goddamned man-ass ad. Please make it go away. I have clicked the "report this ad" at least a dozen times now, with multiple selections as to why I don't want to have a man-ass on my screen. Yet there it is, every damn time. Stop it.

I wanted to upvote this, but apparently I already have...

Thanks for reading, and responding.

It now has an https protocol. Which is a good change.

looks too much like Eleven Warriors 

white space, bitches 

general layout is weird 

other stuff that I'm not remembering now. 

 

06/13/2018 - 2:57pm They did a fairly long…

They did a fairly long period of beta testing, from my understanding. You would think all of these issues would have been addressed before taking the new site live, but wtf do I know? I'm not very tech savvy. 

06/13/2018 - 2:53pm I missed handle jacking…

I missed handle jacking people on Halo-scan after the first change, but that was it. The second version was far superior, and seems like it was apparent pretty quickly. But that could be my memory distorting things, it's been a while. 

06/13/2018 - 12:10pm Old, by miles and miles. I…

Old, by miles and miles. I really, really loathe the new site so far. I get that there are bugs (so many bugs) to work out, and maybe it'll grow on me. But as of today... kill it with fire. 

06/12/2018 - 8:50pm Oh, and after you comment,…

Oh, and after you comment, it's cool how it just takes you to the very end of the whole thread. Then you get to go back to edit, but nope, can't edit. So you have to comment to your comment, even if it's just to vent about having to do exactly that. 

I feel like I'm taking crazy pills. 

06/12/2018 - 8:48pm Agreed. Probably my biggest…

Agreed. Probably my biggest gripe (other than general look/layout). That's exactly how I used to follow threads. 

Another super annoying thing; I started to reply to your comment, then decided not to. Click back, and it goes to the middle of page one of this thread. WTF? It does this if you're on say, page four of a thread and click back also. 

There are so many damn things that don't work, I'm pretty stunned it was decided to go ahead with the roll out. I guess the beta testing wasn't very rigorous. 

06/12/2018 - 1:26pm The new site needs a LOT of…

The new site needs a LOT of work. There are just so many things that are not at all pleasing, difficult or impossible to use, and the "feel" is not great either, IMO. 

I've been stopping in maybe once or twice a day, when historically I check in at least a dozen times, or more. I can't be the only one. I hope you guys are taking it seriously, but I don't see a lot of feedback from staff. Not a good look, again, in my opinion. 

06/10/2018 - 9:30am I don't really care for the…

I don't really care for the new layout, like, at all. I didn't think that I would, given what the descriptions were when it was being discussed. I never liked Eleven Warrior's layout, at all, even a little bit. 

Too much white space. I liked the old layout far better, as far as the feel goes. 

I haven't used the new site enough to offer more. 

I fear change. 

06/04/2018 - 11:05am A "break-out year" is by

A "break-out year" is by default, big. 

06/04/2018 - 10:36am Shocking. 

Shocking. 

06/04/2018 - 9:33am Because he would be walking

Because he would be walking away from the thing that he has been building, just as everything is falilng into place. I would not appreciate that in any way at all.

Scotty doesn't know.

90% of statistics are made up on the spot. 

05/11/2018 - 8:36pm So much irony in this

So much irony in this thread. 

05/11/2018 - 9:34am I disagree with much of that,

I disagree with much of that, but whatever. 

05/10/2018 - 7:04pm Okay, that's one season, and

Okay, that's one season, and I don't disagree with you on that one. Others? They went, what, eight times? 

05/10/2018 - 4:28pm Agreed on all counts. 

Agreed on all counts. 

05/10/2018 - 4:22pm Maybe. But I'd still point to

Maybe. But I'd still point to my original argument above, that the Bulls had a tougher path to the finals every year than either the GSW, or any of LJ's teams have. Maybe they wouldn't win, that's something we'll never know for sure. 

05/10/2018 - 2:17pm The NBA still plays defense? 

The NBA still plays defense? 

05/10/2018 - 2:15pm In your opinion. 

In your opinion. 

05/10/2018 - 2:08pm I can't disagree with you on

I can't disagree with you on much of that. 

05/10/2018 - 2:08pm Look at the quality of teams

Look at the quality of teams the Bulls had to go through to get to the finals, every year they went. Now compare against what LJ's teams have had to play against. Outside of Golden State, the old school Bull's teams would have destroyed all of them. And probably GS too. 

05/10/2018 - 11:46am I mean

That narrative exists for a reason. 

05/10/2018 - 11:43am Rodman didn't join the Bulls

Rodman didn't join the Bulls until very late in MJ's career. By that point, he had already peaked, and needed more help. 

05/10/2018 - 11:42am You're arguing something that

You're arguing something that I didn't say. I said if you put MJ on any decent team today, he'd be demonstrably superior to LJ. I didn't say take the '96 bulls into the current league, though I may argue against your conclusion there too. Maybe. But that's not what I said. 

And I don't think players are much more athletic today either. Stronger, perhaps, and maybe better conditioned, but that isn't the same as more athletic. 

05/10/2018 - 11:31am Do you remember when his dad

Do you remember when his dad got killed? There was a reason, it wasn't random. 

05/10/2018 - 11:24am It was. The story is out

It was. The story is out there, if you look. 

05/10/2018 - 11:22am (No subject)

05/10/2018 - 11:10am Seriously

People lose perspective over time. There was much, much more parity in the NBA when Jordan was dominating. Put him on a decent team today, and he'd slay all. 

05/10/2018 - 10:05am You mean what you just did?

You mean what you just did? Because I'd agree with that. 

05/10/2018 - 10:04am Your take is bad, and you

Your take is bad, and you should feel bad. What if he's completely innocent? You still okay with your stance? 

05/10/2018 - 10:02am Good job, Toby. The

Good job, Toby. The dissonance in your comment here is impressive.

He's referring to khat.

There was a lot more parity in the NBA back then.
