View Full Version : Game Threads Forum

As promised, we now have a game threads forum.

There will be a thread for every game. You are welcome to discuss anything related to that game in the thread. Before during and after the game. Each thread will have a standard name 'Week 1 - Vikings @ Saints - 9/9/10'.

Users cannot create threads in the game threads forum. In order to maintain some continuity and avoid duplicate threads, a small team of well-trained, highly skilled individuals (who spent 2 weeks at 'game thread mod' camp in Sioux Falls, South Dakota) will be creating all the threads. They can be recognized by the 'GTM' patch beside the OG patch in their post-bit. If a game thread is messed up, or we miss a game, feel free to yell at a gtm.

Each thread will have a poll. Simple who will win poll, which will hopefully (but probably not) get closed before the game starts.

The Game Threads forum will be a mess. We are not going to wait until the week of the game to start the threads. I am hoping to create a 'game finder' that will go at the top of this forum so you will be able to find games by week or by team. I will post another thread explaining how to find a particular game before I have that piece written.

The forum is already populated with threads for all preseason week 1 games plus the hall of fame game. Please use this thread for feedback and only use the game threads to discuss those particular games and/or teams. Let us know what you think. We will begin putting all the other game in once we finalize the format.

Whew! When I saw the title of this thread I thought you were creating a forum for video games! Seldom have I been so happy to be wrong!

Perhaps a subdivision in the game threads by week?
Gamethread Forum
--- week 1 forum
--- week 2 forum
etc. etc.

Otherwise by week 10 it could be messy. I have no idea if that would be a ridiculous amount of work or not. I've never designed a forum :p

I though about that, but you still wouldn't get all of 1 teams games on a page. I wanted a way to search by week or team, so I came up with a search by tags method. The forum will get messy, but hopefully you'll just be using the game finder (assuming I actually write it), not searching through the forum.

So far so good. I just put up Preseason Week 2's games with polls. I also added game location, kickoff time, and if and which channel the game will be broadcast on.

Let me get it started... ahem.. Bucs will win the NFC South.. Panthers, Falcons & Saints fan go ahead and cry like little girls when a 3-13 from last year takes it all.. you know it will be true

Also good job on the game threads guys, I already have a place where I post/rant for the Bucs games but it will be nice to have a place to talk about other games with. Greatly appreciated.

/note the author of this post may or not believe what he just typed about the other NFC South teams and is high off the preseason so please excuse him for the moment.

Now I realize I am opening up the floodgates here, but if anyone wants a piece of info on the post that we left out, please suggest it. We will see if it can be done. Furthermore, if you don't like something, let us know in this sticky thread, and we will see if we can institute some change.

Looking forward to contributing to the workings 'round here. When I finally saw football on TV this past week it was like white doves being set free overhead.

Is there an option buried in the code to have polls automatically close at a pre-determined time?

Andy had a little poll class so we can close polls whenever we choose now

Week 8 seems to be missing. I had a good post idea too. Well, a mediocre post idea that only I would have enjoyed.

But still.
