I admit to being surprised when I logged in tonight. The orange seems a bit "yellowish" to me.

Can you bring back the "Roll Along" logo - and maybe a Falcon logo so visitors from other schools know they are in the right place? I doubt many people from Boise know what "Ay-Ziggy-Zoomba" is.

As always, we all appreciate what you do, Grant!

Sir,
I apologize for my non-specific post. I love your website, and visit it daily. As sappy as it might sound, your site is the reason I realized the value of reconnecting with my university. The enthusiam provided by you and the rest of those posting on this site showed me that I can have immense pride in my education at BGSU and the high class sports programs that exist there and in the MAC.
Thank you!
Change? I wish my brain could keep up.


Gregg Brandon ladies and gentlemen!! Gregg Brandon. ;-)

Seriously though, thanks SO MUCH for that post! THAT is the reason I keep this place up and running!


Who's Gregg Brandon?

Sorry the orange-ish background took away your trademark orange text Transfer... :-(

FYI, a thin bold bar at the bottom of the box to the left of each thread indicates that you have a posted a response on that thread...I think that is correct ;)

What does the STAR mean?

I think the star means it's considered a hot topic. Just scrolling down the list, it looks as though if there are over 10 posts, it's a hot topic and starred. Perhaps this could be bumped up to 15 so that a starred topic must get to a second page?

I agree about the second page thing...I'm pretty sure that's how the old one was set-up...the button on the left would turn to orange with white in it.

ya know...I decided to wait awhile before posting my thoughts on the new site just to let myself adjust to it. And I have to say that it's growing on me. But then again it would be hard for it not to since I come on here at least once a day. It's quite a change (mostly) from the old site, but as BO mentioned in another post, I'm happy as a pig in slop that it's back up and running :-D

It's set up so that there are 15 posts per page and it doesn't get the star until it's over 15 posts.... are you seeing otherwise?

I think I saw it add the star on the first page, but there may have been 15 posts, just not a 2nd page/16th post yet. Couldn't tell you what thread it was.

Scroll down the topics in the Website Feedback section. There is one with the title "A new forum suggestion" that has 14 replies (15 posts). 15 posts is one page. It would need to be 15 replies (16 posts) to make 2 pages.

Wow, you guys are sticklers for detail! I have changed the "hot topic" threshold to 16 posts (15 replies).

Didn't notice it until tonight, but I dig the "Birthdays" bar at the bottom of the main forum page. Kind of cool.

Yep, go into your user control panel (upper left) to enter your birthday so the system knows!
