I'm going to start drinking now too. Last night when I thought that I was done around 11:30 I had a celebratory bourbon. It went (criminally) undrank. Undrunk.

But now that I can do @Smiling Joe Hesketh and poke you 24/7 all is good.

BTW the subscriptions are totally hosed. Like as in gone. They barely worked anyways. Will need a better way to pass around the hat with this new place.
Hey Guys - Decade+ lurker, I am unfortunately going to be a much more attentive employee and spouse/parent without access to P&G. Let me be first in line to re-subscribe once you figure out what that is.
Bless your souls, this is the Lord's work.

The mobile application (also known as an "app") is down, though I assume that will take a while to get up and going.

It seems that tables are not displaying properly. See SFIP's tables in the death pool thread. Quite the mess.

Yeah that was the point. Can it be brought back?
You are asking if Sumner & Nip - who've been working for 30 hours - can bring back your post on Phil Simms? Because what was contained in that post was so special and unique that they should put off drinking on a Friday night after doing a ton of (unpaid) work?

No, you're not asking that. I'm a total prick for even entertaining the idea that you'd be that guy. My apologies.

I saw that post. The earth shook. The skies wept.

Edit - Oh wait, that was someone's post about Fritos.

HEY EVERYONE

Nip and I are going AWOL before too long. I know it's a bit of a shambles at the moment, we'll be working on stuff tomorrow. But if there's anything that's a total deal-breaker (can't post in game forums or something, not just inconvient UI crap), holler now and I'll try to address it before I take off.
Nip's gone and I'm rolling out in 10 minutes unless someone has an absolute deal-breaker.

Nip gets all the credit for this, I only jumped in this afternoon after he was up all night.

No, it was a new thread in the media forum, not a single post. But to answer you're question, yes, I'm an enormous dick.

I sent Sam a nice note and some flowers.

Click on the top of the page where your handle is. The personal preference page is there, and a avatar selection. and go from there.

but keep your mitts off Sam

sorry for the double post.
Thanks, Sam. Last time avatars were lost for a board change, I went with something else, but some guys complained, so Miss Sochi Beach, or whoever she is, lives on. I'll change mine when Reggie Cleveland does. BTW, to Nip, I like the bigger sized avatars.

The Our Errors are Mistakes forum is listed under Other Crap in place of P&G when I'm on mobile.

ETA: on the app.

Not related to the upgrade, but I've never been able to access active game threads from my cell phone using the app. (Game threads from prior years are accessible, but not threads from the current year.) Is that a bug or a feature?

I think my avatar has reverted to my original EZ Board one. Crazy

Nice to have the board back, BTW.

Might've been mentioned, but subforms aren't available from the main page (I.E. Views and News Game Threads isn't visible from the forum home page).

Super quick response time now, great job guys.

But it's fugly. Fix it now! ;) (reuploaded my avatar, feeling comforted again)

Nip and everybody- love you guys and the site. been lurking since 2000, and the last year, being laid up a little
without work- I did the incredible- read every post of the Mega thread, including the legal thread.
Thanks from Queens, only eight miles from the Terlet.

The "Other Crap" forum (Including P&G/V&N) should now be unborked for paid members.

Unpaid folks can't even see those forums, and won't tonight. And there's no workaround since you can't pay currently. Sorry. Lots of irons in the fire.
Can't see them, and I think I'm all paid up.

Edit: Just checked my old email account that SoSH is linked to, and I got a renewal notice today (I think I am set to expire on the 14th). So I guess, just hang tight until the renewal process is figured out?

I think it's just a glitch in the transfer over to the new board. My renewal was in March and I can't access them either.

I really wasn't a fan of the default theme but once I changed it to the one you guys set up as "SOSH" the new site looks great.

Is there a way that you can make that the default for people who haven't set one? Maybe others will disagree but this theme is massively better than the default one that was initially selected.

That's the one I'm probably going to work on. Haven't had much of a chance to play with it though.

In the default style, subforums are somewhat hidden. Under each forum title, there's a line detailing the number of discussions and messages. Subforums would be the third counter on the line, and if you click on it a drop down menu will appear with links to the subforums within. Those work fine in Safari for Mac.

You can also go to your account profile and select Preferences under Settings. The first item you can change is Style, and you can change it to the other available option: SoSH. Set Style to SoSH, then click on the Save button on the bottom. Then return to the main page and refresh it if necessary. The SoSH theme has the subforums visible under each forum, much like we've been used to.

Hope this helps.

Yeah, I paid my renewal in April and don't see the Other Crap forum at all either. Looks like all of the folks who are having this issue have the Well-Known Member tag, as opposed to SOSH Member.

Edit: the new site looks great, BTW.

Obviously this is way low on the list, but are we still able to see who (how many and which users) are reading a thread?

Damned if I know.

There;s that green blinking thing to see if people are on line, of course... apparently...

Until we learn how to kill it.

I actually don't know very much.

I tried to pay a while ago, but there was some bug with my account that Nip couldn't fix. He told me to forget about it, but now it is affecting me. I want to support SoSH and I'd like full access. Will there be a workaround soon?

I can imagine you guys have been very busy with this transition, and the hard work is appreciated. The new site looks beautiful. This is just...unfortunate for members like me :(
