To make this transition faster I am asking for a favor...a scavenger hunt! What are we looking for?
We are going to go to other 24/7 sites and take a look at their set-up. For example, Maryland has a separate VIP section that will avoid some of the confusion that we are currently having. I am sure many of the sites have some interesting things that we don't. If I do it, it will take a week. If we all do it, it will take a day. Crowd sourcing at its best. :-) So in the upper right hand side you will see a link to other schools sites. Report back here and if you find something cool you will win a prize. I don't know what yet, but it will be cool. :-)
This way we can do some changes fast....
So if I find something we might all like then I will get what I asked for this whole time.
This is a new year. A new beginning. And things will change.
Well, I am not going to ask that question of you....who else will dare to?
Aw come on.
I checked out a few other boards and honestly I didn't see much there that I haven't seen here. One thing I notices was that on a few of the sites there was a link to purchase tickets with the football schedules. It might be neat to have something like that here. Maybe a link to fanfaretix.com. They are a sponsor on the IU radio network.
I know Zach mentioned in another thread that the setup was not here for a chat feature. I understand, but I just want to mention again how much I will miss that.
Finally, I looked at the PUke site just for laughs and saw nothing worth copying there.
Of course Purdue doesn't have anything here. :-)
The chat is on our wish list and shouldn't be too hard to get going. If you remember, our old site took a long time to get going...it started out as Kentucky Blue! Then I tried to get an IU red but it wasn't even close. Chat didn't work for the first week and we tried a shoutbox that corrupted a whole crop of widgets...Very few noticed but the count down was an hour off and I could never get it corrected! It will all take some time and this is why we are doing it before the season. :-0
It doesn't look like any forum that I looked at (several) had put any effort into making this rather bland software look or function any better. The options available seem to be almost non-existent or at least never used.

I don't think you guys will be letting us get away with that...but it takes time.
Get away with what?
I noticed Illinois fans haven't figured out how to set up a site yet.
Oregon has a countdown clock. I know we had a bad experience with the one on HSN, but if it works, it's a cool feature.
Get away with not doing anything to the site
We have one! We just have to get it going...
give me what I want and all will be ok
actually just wanted to see how the vid thing worked, looks like not so good. Kinda like the photo thing. ok, better than I thought it would be before posting
Buy the latest Kids in Glass Houses album here:
UCLA has a smog alert widget.
And Kentucky has a family tree that shows how all the posters are related.
But I'm not sure how helpful those are for us.
Tried the UL, T A&M, PSU and Georgia sites. Nothing really stood out as different from what is here.
Extensive, many-limbed family tree?... vbg
Thanks for trying...we will be the point then!
If we are posting songs.... A great cover to one of the great songs of my punk era.
"I Need a million"

Chat rooms are incredibly easy to set up. You can almost do so with the click of a button. Getting them configured to recognize user names is a pain, unless you are using one of the many standard forum software options, which this site is not.
I was looking at Teams and noticed the conferences listed. I was wondering when Rutgers and Maryland would be added to the B1G listing?
There are several very, very good alternatives to imbedded forum software. Some honestly better.
We are going to be looking into all of these closer to FB season, with hopefully a few test runs.
The functions on this forum are terrible compared to HSN. hopeful for a upgrade SOON!
"Coming home, It's Indiana"
Patience has been begged of us, yet you cap (scream) "SOON"?
Make a few jokes about jaybob, get BigFishy40 talking about Cody, and get boiler worked up. It will feel like home before we know it.
Dude I could talk for days on that heck I could even write a book.
