Fellas, as per the e-mail I just sent out to you all, I am on the brink of implementing a significant change that I actually have alluded to in the past.  It may seem somewhat small right now, but actually it will probably be the biggest factor to our growth and gaining popularity.  Well, stay tuned!  I'll have it done and announced in a jiffy here!

It's all about spreadin' the word, PA!  All of those automatic re-direct pages have "keywords" embedded in them.  These will eventually, probably in about 6 to 18 months, get picked up by search-engine web crawlers and, well, we'll be lookin' PHAT!  Also, ultimately, the value of existing at multiple domains, especially the pretty darn good ones I have gone about acquiring, is inherent, right?  Think it through!  Anyway, woooo, hoooo! I'm pumped! (That's the closest dude we got to a body-builder!)

Fellas,
 
The site move is upon us, upgradin' servers.  I am going to work on it hardcore starting RIGHT NOW.  Expect somewhat of a rocky road this weekend.  I may even have to close shop for a bit from time to time over the next 24 to 72 hours.  Thank you for your patience, understanding and cooperation!  Soon, no more "Internal Server Errors"!
 
Peace out,
Steve Steg

Okay, guys,
 
Here is how things are going to transpire with the "big move". We are still on the old server and will be until sometime between tomorrow afternoon and Monday afternoon. When the new account becomes able to go live, I will switch what is called the DNS. We will still be on the old server at that point. When the DNS pointer switches from the old server to the new server, "the Gridiron" will go DOWN (no, not like that... sheesh... these smilies have "minds" of their own); no error messages, it will just be DOWN. I will then furiously go about downloading the rest of the forum that I could not beforehand as some files are subject to change, like, e.g., thread- and member-related files. After the download is complete, I will upload it all to the NEW server. How long the downtime will actually last is contingent on what time of day the DNS pointer switches. The "download-and-upload" process in and of itself will probably take about six hours. I have done a dry-run with this on the FFInsiders.com domain and it went smoothly and I was able to acquaint myself with those little unexpected things, so I do not expect to incur any problems or glitches during the "big move". It is just a matter of doing it all and then it'll be smoooooooth sailin' into a brighter, "error"-free future for all Gridironers. Our new server should make for an even MORE PLEASURABLE surfing experience here on "the Gridiron".
 
Between now and then, by all means, feel free to keep beating up our old server on the way out. No reason to stop now!
 
Over annnnnnnnd Out,
Steg

Kudos from the southern end of your state too... I'm glad it's working great now because I was getting perturbed Monday when I was jonesing for the mock to start and the whole site was down.

Steg - One idea I have been thinking about would be a real chat room (vs message boards). A lot of times I see a lot of the other guys in here and it would be fun and informative to be able to all get together in informal chats.
 
We could even set up regular get togethers (weekly?) that could be more topical. Some ideas for this time of year could be : draft strategies, sleepers, position discussions, team reports, etc.. For during the season: start or bench, weekly best performers, trade advice, etc.. I realize we cover all of those things on these boards, but in a chat environment the responses are immediate, allowing more dialogue and potentially more synergy to develope. Not better or worse than a message board, just different.
 
I don't know how hard that would be to incorporate - or even if it would be worthwhile, but I do believe it has potential.
 
In the meantime, if anyone would like to "chat" with me, between about 3 PM and 5 PM EST on weekdays I hang out with some friends (including my gf) at Yahoo 30s room 8 under the ID "jacktatang" or "bgsgfan".

Interesting you bring that up about a chat room!  I've weighed it in my head a few times now and I am leaning in that direction, even maybe in lieu of converting "the Bleachers" section to a message board.  I mean a chat room in combination with "the Bleachers" sticky thread and the occasional "Get to know your Gridironers" threads on "the Sidelines" may actually be exactly what the doctor ordered for "the Gridiron".  And, it ALL would be quite unique.  There is a chat room mod for the YaBB forum...

Heya... I know I've responded to some of your threads here, but never gave you an official hello KKS.  There's not a whole lotta BS here.  We're all FF fans/players and, for the most part, are straight-shooters.
 
People here will take the time to actually read your posts and respond thoughtfully to them, unlike some other sites where everyone is looking for the next flame opportunity.
 
Enjoy!

Well, fellow Gridironers,
 
I am at one of these junctures where I'd like to (in the spirit of slow, but steady progress) garner some input from you all regarding (reasonable/small) upgrades/modifications to be considered for the offseason.  At this time, I would like input on the following...
 
1) Our "FF-specific Team Reports" section, which is featured at the top of the pages of the forum has, thankfully, grown by leaps and bounds this year.  That section along with the other "added" (non-forum) related links in that area above the forum is really pushing the forum itself down, however, necessitating quite a bit of (extra) scrolling.  How would you guys like to see the stuff up there reorganized/consolidated?  The "Donations" link ain't going anywhere.  But, besides that, the rest could be consolidated under two headings:  "FF-specific Team Reports" and "Other Featured Content".  I mean, one quick case in point, as things stand right now "the Newsstand" and "The REAL Feed" links are in fact redundant.  Also, do you guys like that stuff up there where it is or would you prefer those links to be off to the left?  Or, what other ideas do you have regarding this?
 
2) This is a very small one...  Is it time to remove the "smiley memorial" to 9/11 up at the top center?  Do NOT get me wrong.  I like it.  I like those who like it.  And, I like that it in its small way helps us not forget that event.  BUT,...??? ...
 
Finally, please understand that at this time I am asking about these two issues in particular as I am, given what I perceive to be their particular importance at this time, willing to add getting them done to my already full plate.  So, I want input about what I can (make the time to) do.  What I don't need is a deluge of unfocused recommendations.  So, please limit your suggestions to these areas of inquiry.  And, ON THE OTHER HAND, if you kind of like things as they are, please let me know that too (though I don't think this is totally going to be or even should be the case as I myself think something, even if just something small, needs to be done, at least with respect to #1 above).  The point being, if you guys think things are fine as they are with respect to these issues, I can consider directing my energies to other "projects".
 
Please do feel free to chime in here.  Just do so thoughtfully.  There are few, if any, sites out there where your input on such developmental matters matters.  Here I ask for it.  I implore you all to take advantage of this unique opportunity to "make a difference".  Thank you for your anticipated thoughtful input!  I am...
 
...Sincerely,
Steve Stegeman
