  1. There should be an arrow to the far right of the green bar that you can click on to re-expand it.
  2. A "UND Athletic Department" forum would be obvious and easy enough. Is there really enough traffic to justify it, would it be better to rebrand "Other Sports" as "Athletic Department and Other Sports", or do you think this is a situation where the creation of the forum will drive additional discussion on those topics? I'm less sure about the other. The basic idea is to separate UND-related news from other (Grand Forks, North Dakota, and regional) news?
  3. Hmmm... the "UND Sports" category title is gray on green. But, it is clickable. (Though clicking it just narrows the list of forums from the full list to those in that category). Am I looking at the right thing, or am I on the wrong track?
  4. In a thread, there should be a "Follow" box near the upper right. Click that, and you'll be following that thread. What following means is somewhat up to you. It can notify you when you load the site, send you an email with any new replies, etc...
  5. Ok, I think this works. Thanks for pointing it out everyone.
  6. Yeah, this is nothing more than trolling at this point.
  7. Huh, sorry about that, I honestly hadn't given that situation much thought. But you're all right, it has to change. I could move it as a subcategory to other sports, and add a "(retired)" tag, but then it would still float at the top of other sports because its a subcat. I could just merge the posts into other sports, but then it would lose its individuality as a separate forum. I could also just add an "archive" or "retired" category, and move it as a subcat to that. Then it would still have its separate identity, but clearly be historical/not seeming more important than active
  8. Hmmm.... do you see them all now? http://siouxsports.com/mens-hockey/schedule/und/ I do, but could be a bug in the HTML that makes it fail on some browsers.
  9. Yep, hawks is tough to work with. No doubt about it.
  10. I almost went undfans.com during the transition, but never got my act together. Now I feel like I should go Hawks, the name seems to be sticking.
  11. Don't believe I've managed to snag any of those. I have some close--undhawksfans, undhawksports, undhawkstalk. Believe me, I've been testing these names on people for years. No one agrees, which is why I still haven't done anything.
  12. I've joked about how if I held a vote, I'd still just do whatever I want (just like the nickname process!)
  13. As I mentioned above, "Hawks" is such a common (generic) name that all the best variations are taken. hawksnest.com, for example, is taken. hawksperch.com is as close as we've been able to get.
  14. After testing the waters 2 years ago (and reserving quite a few candidates), then debating with a few different groups of friends and supporters last Fall, I was actually just pondering a site name change this Summer. The problem still is that Hawks is such a common team name that all the really obvious Hawks-based domain names are in use. As a prize for reading an obscure thread in the admin forum, I'll let you in on some leading candidates... ndhawktalk.com was a leading favorite a couple years ago among people who wanted a more generic ND/UND association, and liked the rhyme. The
  15. I see. Ok, I've got that working now, too. Let me know of anything else!
  16. Probably. I made a permissions change, try again please.
  17. I'm cutting siouxsports.com, including the forum, over to a new server tonight. The transition is gradual over the course of up to a day or so, so there could be some weirdness as some people are on the old one and some on the new one. I'll keep an eye on things and hopefully all will be well.
  18. With Denver's win, a huge tie. Congratulations to: UND-1, Oxbow6, Redneksioux, iluvdebbies, Stms http://siouxsports.com/hockey/bracketleaders.php
  19. Thanks! I see what happened, it wasn't scoring those right. My mistake was spot checking johnboy's bracket, but he didn't get either game outcome correct. Should be fixed now! Looks like there's going to be a tie no matter who wins.
  20. Yesterday's games were unkind to johnboy. http://siouxsports.com/hockey/bracketleaders.php Edit - the sentence below was wrong. Looks like its going to birdman with a Duluth win or Diggler with a Denver win, though johnboy is guaranteed to at least tie for most overall correct picks.
  21. Hahaha usually people don't start complaining about that until June. I don't switch to the next season until August 1, because that's when the next season's schedules are reliably finalized and posted on the sources I use for schedule data. But, I suppose I could just hide the scoreboard a couple weeks after the last game, or something.
  22. I'm baffled. Will try to look around on the forum software's support pages, but I haven't heard of it before.
  23. Broke this into its own thread.
  24. I'll update the links on the front page soon. Here are your traitors leaders: http://siouxsports.com/hockey/bracketleaders.php Here are the picks: http://siouxsports.com/hockey/bracketpicks.php Until a surge very late today, it looked like UND wasn't even going to be the favorite, a rare occurrence here.
  25. My bad, bracket is open until sometime tomorrow afternoon! Try again.
