New Site - PLEASE READ

Hello All,
My name is Ashley and I am the one that moved the forum to its new hosting location. This was done for security reasons and try to keep the forum from going down every other day. I understand that the new forum looks very different from the old one but I promise almost everything you had before you still have it might just be in a different place.

Items that are gone due to a limitation of the new hosting/ forum update:
- Awards
- Flags

As I was going thought your posts I was able to fix a lot fo the issues you were listing. Below is kind of a running list of issues an what is fixed and what I am still working on.

Items that I have fixed from your comments:
- Smilie are now working.
- Color/Theme changes
- Signature are now showing up. (Here is how to edit them https://screencast.com/t/OJHzzhiV1)
- Ranking is now showing up.
- Private messaging is now working.

Some issues I am still working on are:
- Missing items from the Calendar
- Like button the posts is giving an error.

One other note I have seen a lot is theme/color related items. I know this is important to all of you but at the moment the most important thing was getting you back a functioning forum with as many features I can get you back from before.

Theme/color is something we can change but it the moment I do not have the time and resources to fix all of the issue and design the site. I did do some theme updates yesterday but it is very time consuming. Please just be patient with the forum as we get it back to as close as I can to what you had before.

If anyone has any issues that they are running in to please let me know in the post below. Please give me as much detail as possible .

    I don't think so, that drive should have ended with a TD and conversion, yes the Ravens had 2 minutes to go but guess what, the pressure then is for the Ravens to come from behind in the death clutch of a SB.

    Pressure like that could of made it worse for the Ravens, than for the 49ers as they had all the momentum.

      Rubbish. The Niners were robbed by the officials. It should have been personal foul and first down for the Niners when the placekicker was bulldozed! And Byonce's big butt and thighs was bad juju and obviously chosen to favor the Ravens. The Niners needed an Elton John or Ricky Martin to pull off this Superbowl.
      Prayers.

        That would be because they are not needed, nor welcome or desired. The team did experiment with them in the 1950s but dropped them after a couple of years.

        The ludicrous Steely McBeam mascot only exists because the league mandated that each team have one. Pure hokum! Again a piece of fluff that is not needed, nor welcome or desired.

        There is nothing wrong with having cheerleaders. I do think it becomes silly when they make news because of non-events like the Ravens girl, or become more of the show than the team, aka the Cowgirls.

              So how, exactly, do you think the Superbowl could be fixed?

              It seems many European soccer games have been fixed in recent years. One way has been to bribe a referee who awards a dubious penalty at a crucial point. Seems a very 'hit and miss' approach to obtain a certain result given all the other variables in a game.

              But it does happen and is apparently extremely profitable for the gangs running it.

                  "At a press conference in The Hague, in the Netherlands, the European Police announced that after investigating more than 700 football matches across Europe, they found 380 of them to have been fixed, including Champions League, World Cup qualifiers, and European Cup qualifying matches."

                      Ball sports breed corruption and violence among both players and fans.

                        Of all the professional sports the NBA is the worst. Not so much with point shaving or fixed games but with helping superstars score points. As great as Michael Jordan was he had more help from the refs than baseball players get help from steroids. Just look at his game winning shot against Utah in the 1998 NBA Finals.

                          Oh get off it Paul. Sports fixing, cheating and looking for an illegal edge have been here since the ancient Olympics and beyond. There are many reports of runners, wrestlers and boxers doing any number of illegal things to win. Note, those are all not ball sports!

                          It isn't the game or what they play it with......it is the people involved and the importance put on it. If college wrestling, judo or swimming brought the fame and money ball sports do we would be reading the same about them!

                              The people? Oh yeah, like the guy who got busted with 500 lbs. of dope?

                              Or the the ones who kill their women?

                                And the boosters and big time college coaches will see that these sports never gets big and makes money.
