Hey guys, just wanted to let you know that I'm taking over managing the site from Top, who has been awesome.
That said, I'm in conversation now about getting things reset and getting up and running for the new year, so get ready!

Also, since I'm running more of the site now, would anyone else be interested in running my upset pickem game?

This is going to be a great thing for the site!

 

I just kind of ran out of gas with it and don't have the drive I once had...

 

BUT I will defnetly stick around and talk in the forums and do the contests.....

 

With that said, if Timm can get things rolling, I would LOVE to see the site get back to the way it was in its best days!

Congrats, ASJTimm.  I'll be here this season and ready to roll with my comments.  Ready for the season.  Ready for Clemson to do their best in the post DW era.  Go Tigers!

Couple of things:

 

1) good luck

2) I have tried and tried today to reply to messages using chrome browser and its not working. Whats the deal? having to use Edge now and its horrible.

3) dont take it personally but I love straight up pickem or confidence games and not a fan of the upset game. Are you planning on running a standard game? maybe through espn or poolhost?

I'd love to see it get back to the way it used to be. I'm here for the season, but probably limited. I'm also starting pharmacy school, so things will be busy and hectic.

For LSUZilla:

Everything is working fine for me on Chrome, so I'm not sure what your issue could be, perhaps local. As for pickem, we have a straight pickem game on the main page; the upset game is separate and just runs on a thread.

For GO UTES:

What do you mean by "the way it used to be?"

When I first joined the site in 2008ish, it was booming. That's what I would like to see. I think we've got better games and interactive things now, but we lack the people.

We reached a peak in traffic around 2011....but thats when i ran out of ideas on how to find new people, and I got a job, and I just didnt have the same amount of time....

 

Hopefully via social media we can build it back up!

Oh I definitely agree on that. If anyone has any revolutionary ideas on how to get this thing fired up, send them my way!

Top, that's awkward. I was on my mission in 2011...I missed from October 2010 until October 2012. Before I left, it was fantastic. I know somewhere in there, you had the whole struggle with the guy whose name I can't remember.

 

I tried a while ago tweeting about Fans25, but I don't think it worked. I could try Facebook, but I don't know.

 

What are the chances of somehow teaming up or starting a group on Firefan. They have gotten huge really quick.

UTES, whats awkward?

 

Sure, we can try to start a group up on Firefan. Never heard of that.

 

Maybe let's wait a few days so Timm can get it all going as far as Pick'em COntest and all that, and then yea, lets go recruiting!

I'm just kidding. It's just awkward becasue I wasn't around during that time (2011). Firefan is a sports game app. You pick games and there are a bunch of questions for each drive, or each 4 minutes or anything like that. It's pretty cool. It's still new though, so last time I played it, it was buggy.

 

Sounds good to me.
