I don't know if this is the answer, but it seems to have created a happy medium for the live threads. I don't know much about programming, so I am only guessing here. But staff seemed to be content in letting the live threads remain, so-as-long as we turned of the voting. Which I can only assume bogged down the site and created unnecessary space.
Hey-Hey! Ho-Ho! Those pleated pants have got to go!
That's where I don't have an issue, '05. If you have a topic that is off-topic, clearly spelled out in the title and is meant for furthering conversations, have at it. Hell, I may join, who knows. I think the owners of the site may have a different take, because it's taking up bandwidth and space. And they have an obligation to keep the site maintained.
Nope. Big 12 would send Champ in this scenario
You mean, if I keep wishing my wife would learn to cook, it might just happen?
And I agree on the freedom part from CalPoppy. But there is the point where conversations do start to pull from the original thread. Isn't there a way to just eliminate the conversations and not nuking an entire thread?
That is why I have always enjoyed the live threads. Because there you can carry on a conversation with other members.
Yes and no. That was a live-game thing that was off-site. So there was no registration required and thus, no accountability. Which is what started the shit show.
Hell, I'm as guilty as others when it comes to getting into a 'conversation' inside a thread. It would just be nice to be able to take it into a chat room instead of bombing a topic.
As someone who has been around these parts for a while, I tend to agree with you Jason. But it's mostly falling on deaf ears (or eyes in this case). Too many senseless forum topics. And the ones that do have content seem to go off topic way too quickly. About a year ago, when all this seemed to have started, I suggested a 'chat' section to the site. Where folks can go to carry on conversations without killing a thread (or worse, creating one just to do so).
I wouldn't even be opposed to eliminating the HS all together, as that seems to be the incentive to further the banter. Or just start jailing offenders instead of threatening to do so.
The site is still the best, far and away. But I will say, it has become less enjoyable this past year.

Busting a nut in a cemetery just doesn't seem right.
Not to mention, an unlucky loss to MSU, but very lucky wins against Minny and Indiana.

So here's the thing. If it's all BS, the good for Herman to address his team and shoot it down. But if it IS true, I am not a big fan of addressing a rumor as a rumor when you know it's not. Either ignore it and move on, or acknowledge that there might be something to it. But don't lie.
Well, we are back to the number one class, so there is that.
Light night on the ice. Only two games on the frozen pond.
At least we get to beat a top 10 team now.
Seeing a trend
Sure, we can save it right next to his other wonderful post: http://www.elevenwarriors.com/forum/ohio-state-football/2014/11/45026/tom-herman-sucks
That's my kind of H20!
I think our Db's are pretty 'hands on' as well. So I won't complain.
Talk about a weird situation down there.
His fantasy numbers are good. Ran him a couple weeks.
Holy shit this MNF game is awful. Although it's nice seeing Brady get hit all over field.
I live in Cali. If I throw in $20 can you ship us some H2O?
