  1. I think I have the bracket working. As usual, I'll start with a "soft launch", so take a look and let me know of any problems with either submission or the layout of the bracket (e.g. do the matches look right?) http://siouxsports.com/hockey/bracket.php Who will join the illustrious list below? 2016 UND1981 / stack / nhockey30 / ringneck28 / bigskyvikes (UND National Championship year) 2015 WiSioux 2014 johndahl 2013 FSSD/Brainerd Sioux 2012 mj3und 2011 tho0505 2009 Big A HG 2008 willtippen 2007 seanpc03 2006 teamsioux 2005 mynameiscuomo 2004 paul62/BigGreyAnt41/brew003/UP2S

    Spaten FTW. But I mostly jumped in for the discussion of Guinness at St. James Gate vs. U.S. They make it quite clear there should be absolutely no difference between a Guinness on draft there vs in U.S. It's all brewed there and should not change appreciably in a sealed keg over a few weeks. Unless you're in a hole in the U.S. with dirty lines and a two month old keg, it's the same. But no one likes to say that, because it makes their trip to Dublin less special The brewery is a destination unto itself, worthy of the pilgrimage, but the beer is the same.
  3. That's fake news. Sad.
  4. I updated the forum so logins are secure, like when you do online banking or shopping (for the techies, it now uses https for logins so your login information is encrypted during transmission). There's a small chance this might cause some people problems logging in, particularly with older browsers. Let me know if it does.
  5. Don't know how I missed this message. I created new versions of those tables/tools on the CollegeHockeyRanked site. I updated the links to point there. Sorry!
  6. Correct. Discussion of the coach's public performance in his job as a coach is on topic.
  7. Please stop with the personal attacks, keep it about the topic. Thanks.
  8. Alright, clearly there's a problem. I'm turning off automatic registrations for a while. Anyone who registers for a new account will require manual approval from me, which will create a bit of a delay. I hate to do it this time of year, so sorry for the inconvenience.
  9. Yep, thanks. The best way you all can help is when you see one pop up, hit the "report" button and that dispatches an email to all the mods. One of us is then able to jump on it pretty quickly.
  10. Yeah, there was a quick flood of new spambots. They can usually sneak a few through before the filters begin to catch them, but now they seem mostly contained. Sorry for the inconvenience.
  11. I personally wouldn't mind having a buy/sell/trade forum. But, normally we do such a thing when there's a problem with a topic dominating a forum, so we split it out into its own. I don't feel like the number of buy/sell/trade threads in any of the sports forums is overwhelming, and I think the people who participate in the buy/sell/trade threads in the hockey forum actually appreciate the increased traffic it gets from being in that forum. That's my one concern with just giving it a shot, is if we forced the sale threads into a separate forum would the decreased traffic harm them? I
  12. Yep, let's all keep the discussions about the topic and not personal details of other posters. Thanks!
  13. Ok, I updated the feed URL. New stories should flow in shortly. I'll check on it again tomorrow.
  14. It seems to be an issue with the W10 Anniversary Update's version of Edge and the CKEditor (third party editor the forum uses): https://invisionpower.com/4bugtrack/active-reports/41132-edge-wont-quote-a-post-r12195/ Because it involves a third party component, I'm guessing it will take slightly longer than usual for the vendor to fix it.
  15. Hmm.... maybe I just see it because I'm a moderator. Well, there goes that idea. I'll do some more digging with the vendor on the edit issues. Again, Android is so prevalent that it's hard to believe it's a general Android issue.
  16. In the little toolbar for the editor window (top of the message editing window) there is a button labeled "Source" in the upper left. It should be there on all screen sizes/resolutions. That toggles you from WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) mode to html/bbcode (shows you the markup).
  17. Silly question, but the behavior on your devices is so erratic... have you tried clearing the caches/deleting local files? If your browsers were somehow running old versions of the files, that could lead to very erratic behavior.
  18. Wow, that's quite a list. Sorry to hear you're having so many problems! If a quote box is selected (if not, click the title portion of it) hitting delete works on all the platforms I have access to, but it doesn't include those you mentioned (though those are quite common, so it's hard to believe they're not tested). In the rare occasion that doesn't work, you can always still toggle to the "Source" view and just wipe out the text and the markup. Pasted links don't turn into something clickable until you actually post. It causes problems with the editing to make them live while in ed
  19. There was a forum upgrade a week or so ago that apparently resulted in that change (see bug report https://invisionpower.com/4docs/knowledgebase/41132-go-to-new-comment-does-not-go-to-last-comment-when-a-content-item-is-marked-as-read-r346/). I applied the patch, and expect it to be fully fixed in the next release.
  20. Sorry, I'm always slow during the summer... Yeah, the way all browsers work is that they load everything they need for the page (which causes the page to keep redrawing as new stuff loads), then jump to the right part of the page only once everything is loaded. This actually isn't a case where the browser cache should matter much (that comes into play when there's a forum upgrade that replaces a file with a new one with the same name, but your browser keeps using the old one that it has cached). But, marking all as read, or even clearing the cookies, might. I'm also a couple min
  21. An opinion piece on the Skins name from a long-time outspoken critic (from https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/im-dropping-my-protest-of-washingtons-football-team-name/2016/05/19/b09e8e7e-1cfe-11e6-8c7b-6931e66333e7_story.html?hpid=hp_local-news_o-mccartney-815am%3Ahomepage%2Fstory):
  22. Please debate the topic, not attack other posters. Thanks.
  23. Taylor Chorney in for still injured Orpik tonight...
  24. Let's just say it's been fun cheering for a team that's up against a Hak playoff team. In all seriousness, no team is more likely to blow so dominating a 3-0 lead than the Caps. So, Philly fans shouldn't worry until it's over.
  25. How is there not already a general playoffs thread? Anyway, tonight's win marks the first time in franchise history the Caps have taken a 3-0 series lead in a best of 7. Somewhat shocking given they've had 2-0 leads 7 times, and hopefully a sign that they've shaken off the demons. Flyers (and fans) completely lost their composure in the 3rd, allowing the Caps to run up the score. Makes you wonder if the coach knows how to coach in the playoffs
