Umpire in Chief

Site Upgrade

Recommended Posts

One other thing I've noticed. I'm getting emails almost immediately whenever somebody replies. Before the upgrade I might get an email within a few hours. So far, so good!

​I would NOT find that to be a benefit.

MLB umpires change uniforms = gotta hurry up and by 5 of everything.

Website changes looks = change sucks.

:confused:

Another thing, while everything re-caches, things may run a little slower initially, but soon things will be much more responsive than before.

Looks to be a total downgrade.

There goes one of my favorite websites. Tries way too hard to be modern now....

While it definitely looks different and there are obviously things that are incomplete, I think Warren's doing it the right way here. Get the forum back up and running where he can get feedback from the people who use it rather than potentially having it down for a few days and doing it without input.

  • I haven't looked at the site on my phone yet, so I can't offer input there.
  • I don't recall noticing ads before, but it could just be that they're more prominent now.
  • I agree that it seems like there's a lot of white space.

 

I guess I never really noticed what the software was before, but I assume you upgraded from an older version of IPB?

I guess my suggestion to everyone would be to offer constructive feedback and give him a chance to work on things before you pass judgment.

There's no point trying to fix something that isn't broken. Not all changes are necessary. 

@kylehutson Your supercomputer doesn't scare me, come back when your YouTube videos have 30,000+ views. :b

​YouTube views constitutes tech-savvy-ness these days?  So you're saying that anyone who's able to push the right spot on their smart phones the requisite number of times to record something makes them like an MIT grad?

No.  Just ...... no.

​I may be wrong about this great web resource, but for many web sites, user traffic lead to ad revenue. So by using the site we may paying with our visits/posts. Worth while posts can generate more web traffic, and more revenue.

But having a BigUmpire sighting (even a grumpy one) was good to see.

People are so quick to judge a situation now a days.....what ever happened to go with the flow? Change is a needed thing, imagine where we would be if we were still using flint lock muskets to fight our wars......

I'm still having trouble accessing the site on Tapatalk; I'd prefer to use that over viewing the site in a mobile browser.  Is anyone else still having this issue?

​Yes. It isn't installed yet.

​Tapatalk has not released a compatible version. They are working on it, but there is no ETA.

Still can't get the page numbers 2,3,4,5, etc. to work. Also, clicking on the next button doesn't do anything either. However, clicking on the arrow on the far right does take me to the last featured post.

​Mike,
Please try now. There is a control mechanism designed to prevent bots from disrupting the site by overloading it with requests. So give it a few seconds (2-3) before hitting the next or 2,3,4... buttons. 

Let ma know if this works.

I like it....  Sharp and clean, just like an umpire aught to look.
