Cool.  Looks like I was in a small minority of those liking the forums but wishing for some improvements.  It's been discussed before, but can you confirm that you and Shawn can't do anything about this one...

The forums not truly tracking post view history.  My primary gripe.  Logging on, but then having to bail before reading all the new posts, then coming back to all those new post indicators gone.  I'm confident that other forum platforms do this right.  Anything you can do to fix this?  Even if it requires some kind of upgraded subscription?

A much lesser gripe is the ads, but what is the cost of eliminating them?  Tell me it's not worth looking up but please don't say AdBlock plug-ins are free.  

Thanks!



HAVE THE SAME ISSUE

Adblock Plus bitch!!! laughing

Well, I don't know a solution for the first one but if that can be fixed I would love that as well.

As for ads, it appears that I can pay forumotion to punt those. There are two options...FOR MEMBERS or FOR MEMBERS AND GUESTS...obviously it isn't worth paying to remove ads for guests. So here are the prices...

6 months: $6.30
1 year: $12.40
2 years: $22.30
3 years: $32.10
4 years: $41.70
5 years: $51.40


I never see ads so it doesn't cross my mind but maybe I should be building this small expense as well as the domain name into our fees? I don't mind paying for the hosting shit because I would do that for MFG anyway. shrug

The survey is a good indication that the ad portion isn't worth becoming an expense to you or the league. Thanks for the numbers, though. Maybe if/when I win a big progressive payout. I am wondering if there is an upgraded level of subscription that buys us the unread post history piece, though. I have launched more than one Google expedition to find that out with no luck. Would you mind opening a support ticket or whatever to see if there are options? I know from my visit to your place that you play the same game, having to wait to start reading shit until you have time to read it all to make sure you don't miss something.

I don't have an ad-blocker and the only time I see ads is when I am logged off but when I log in I don't see any. I use Firefox so I don't know if that makes a difference or not...I know nothing just thought I would share.

I don't know Forumotion like I do MFL but there is the link if you want to ask them. I just went to do it but logging in is proving to be useless...they clearly have an account associated with my email address but it's not helping me figure out the username and password for shit. Fucking irritating.

Hahaha.  It's actually a privilege to be able to see the real Rich now that we have the new photo cards on the message boards.  When's he going to stop by to put in an application?

He plays in one dynasty, but trust me he doesnt know what the words IDP mean. Wait he calls is "I Dont Play"

This is the only way to go. It sucks. Unread "since your last visit." Most forums leave them marked unread. I don't know why forumotion has issues with it.

As for the ads, what are you guys using to block on mobile?

I have no idea...I might just be wicked good at ignoring them on my phone. Dude I work with says I have "the gift" because I can sit in the breakroom and completely tune out all the tards I work with and look at shit on my phone...maybe I also look past ads. shrug If they're blocked on there, then it was a default setting of some sort.

If you're not constantly being redirected to the app store, then you're not getting the ads. What browser are you using?

Yes. That right there. That is the annoyance. In 2013, the ads used to be bigger or maybe it was how the site was laid on (viewed on phone). Now they don't get in my way, but somehow I keep magically triggering trips to the app store.

THIS.

My phone does some annoying shit (fucking group text is a shitshow) but apparently this ad issue was handled perfectly.

I used to have problems with mobile trying me to go to google apps or something, but that issue was squashed a couple months ago for some reason. I don't show ads on my laptop either, where I used to.

On my phone now. ...everything looks right with no ads. The only thing that's off is on the main page the content needs more space than it's given so it spills over the background but honestly it's not noticeable so whatever.

I'm cheap and hate hassle....I will rock a phone until it completely stops working if for no other reason than I don't want to go to the store and go through their whole process and have my wallet punched in the dick.

You can go with the Tyrants quick and easy phone service. Simple as one decade free of RW, you pay nothing up front! Just sign this contract, don't charge me league dues, and I will send you a brand new phone of my choosing and voila!

I've had issues with the site since going to an iPhone.  With my Note I didn't see any ads and was able to pull the desktop site.  Now I always get a mobile version of the site and about 1 out of every 3 shots I get redirected to a page telling me that I won something.  I can't go back or do anything.  I just need to close my window and reclick the link.

Russ, there should be a menu link in the upper right corner of the mobile site where you can switch to classic mode. Not sure that will help with redirects but you will have the regular site back.
