It took me a while to get my head around the concept of the disconnect between front page and user content, but I think we now have something that will help (Note: You must be logged in to see this page).

Are we in the same area code?

Caught the tail end of an episode of this show..... Seems good.

My favorite show on television currently.  Superbly written and really good character development.

What show, if I may ask? I haven't been watching all that much TV and even have all of the episodes of True Detective to watch (DVR is wonderful). Could use a couple new shows to get into.

BBC's Sherlock.  Benedict Cumberbatch stars as the titular character, and Martin Freeman as Watson.  So far, they've done three seasons with three episodes apiece (all 90 minutes), and it's really compelling stuff.  Not as deep as some other shows, perhaps, but it's just a damn good time.

True Detective seems phenomenal, I've only caught one episode so far, I take it it's living up to the hype?

I have no idea yet. I started watching episode 1 but had to get up early for a morning run (training for the Cap City Half) so I went to bed early. My roommate has been raving about it but I just haven't had time to sit down and watch it yet. Hopefully I'll get there soon enough, but I still need to catch up on several shows so who knows at this point. But from everything I've heard, the show is one of the best, if not the best, show on TV right now.

About Sherlock, I'm with you, Hodge.  It's on the PBS Mystery series.  Understand they have agreed to do another year.  Probably won't be aired until January, 2015.

I would highly recommend giving Greg Kinnear's series "Rake" a shot.  You can watch the 1st 4 episodes on free Hulu, here:

Airs Thursday night on FOX.

Sorry to just jump in here, but I'm going to go ahead & do just that & mention that True Detective is an absolutely amazing show. Everything about it is pretty damn stellar, but the role of detective Rustin Cohle as played by McConaughey is some the finest acting I've seen. Also, whoever writes the stuff, give that person an award. Watch it Hodge!

True Detective is freaking amazing... Such a good show with brilliant acting.

I started watching Sherlock on Netflix and they only have the first 2 seasons on there so that's as far as I've gotten... Need to wait to until they have the next season on to continue.

It's one of my favorites so far... I really like the show Elementary on CBS and I think I like Sherlock better.

I love this concept! Is there/will there be a direct link to this somewhere other than this post?

Or is it like Fight Club: The first rule of Premium Content is you don't direct link to Premium Content?

Also, Jason, kudos on the new site. I like it more and more every day!

Echo the question about double secret premium link.

 

It would be sort of cool if there was like a secret place to click on the site that wasn't marked by any icon or photo --- just like a secret active link buried somewhere to the side of the regular content that took you over to the premium club lounge.

Happy to hear it's helping to bridge some of that gap. My initial thought was not to put a link to that page anywhere and leave it up to you guys as to whether you wanted to let the plebes know. What do you guys think?

That's fine by me ... I went ahead and set it up as a "favorite" on my browser so I can just use that to refresh the list ..... thanks again

Love the concept - thanks.  I'm sure we'll all have more feedback as the days go by.  The quick reaction to user concerns is just another reason why this site is so great.

 

As an aside, I'm thinking the 50k helmet sticker threshold is going to be broken more quickly than any of us realized.

What would a real helmet look like with 50K stickers on it?  I bet the wearer of it would have no worries for concussion.  They'd have 6" of stickers and a helmet that touched the guys lined up on the left and right of them.

Jason,

I  like this.  Yet I still see plenty of white space (firefox viewer) under that "recent Posts" section that just SCREAMS for "recent comments" section.  Jes' sayin'.

Great to see pistol monkey again ... I hadn't heard from him since the new site was launched.  Always gets a little nuts when he starts firing off rounds around company ... but it's all in good fun.  I mean it's a monkey carrying a pistol .. it has to be awesome.

Crimson, we need you to be a little more subdued in the Premium Lounge. You're making the other members cry and then cry again.

Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition. Not quite the tracker of our youth, but this looks like a much needed tool for use "old timers" who've been around the Cantina for a while. Thanks Jason, and keep up the great work.

Jason, I cannot imagine the undertaking it is to run this site. Thank you for your hard work and creating that link a great first step. Two more suggestions.

Two things that I'm really missing/wanting back:
1) The Tracker on the "My Account" page. The Tracker was one of the most important tools...ever. Made it so easy to continue "conversations". I understand a few people used it to downvote others, but I believe the vast majority used the Tracker for its intended purpose. Please don't punish the masses because a small minority abused it.

2) Original Post Upvote/Downvote
Why was this taken away? I won't lie, getting upvotes for a blog post or forum post is a motivator for me. I typically put several hours into my blog posts. Since I'm being honest, I used to write a weekly college football column that was carried by 1-3 Central Ohio newspapers (2005-2009). I stopped writing when my second child arrived. After a couple of years away, I decided that this site was the perfect place to make my comeback and share information with dedicated Ohio State fans. I stated it before and I'm serious about it "Money is overrated. Will work for upvotes."
