Take a look at this thread, nerf, looks like you can post media. I haven't tried as I'm still "pending approval" as I posted above.If, as it appears, it lacks an ability to embed social media, it’s gonna put a hurting’ on my game, that’s for sure.
The new board has some kind of minimum standards. They took my one dollar, but when I try to go to the forums, they tell me “You do not have permission to view this page or perform this action.” Ouch!Dang. New Board already has pictures of the Hula Hoop girl posted
well, don’t expect too much content. It’s mostly just a sandbox since I haven’t really used Reddit much in recent years.
I think we should look at this as an opportunity to get something even better for us.
To me, these are the primary criteria for our RFP:
- Free (I toyed with the rokfin thing, but if it costs a penny, it will change the culture a lot). Someone is going to pay for it, but it sure shouldn't be new users, or 1 year old users.
- Some gravitas: BWI has been around in various forms for a long time. My fear with something like Reddit is that it would just get lost in the noise. There needs to be a reason for people to be drawn in. Willie could do that. Or Maybe 247 or Black Shoe Diaries could. Obviously sanction from Cael, PSU, or NLWC would be great but I don’t see it happening. There's something to be said for "come for the football, stay for the HR hate."
- Usability: mobile first, lots of modern web trappings like embedded social media and page previews with links. Ads that don’t get too much in the way.
- Mods. The hidden heroes of any vibrant anonymous online community. We need ones that get it.
No problem. It's an issue with the new board. You'll see a post pinned at the top regarding it. I wish I had more information for everyone, I just don't. To me, BWI is gone shortly. What Rivals does after that, I have no idea. I see no way On3 has the same boards with the same exact name, and BWI doesn't go away. That's just common sense. It's also clear, BWI folks cannot speak as of now.Thank you, ContextLion and Hotshoe! Maybe we can persuade them to keep the old site around as a help desk for the new site.
The thread got posted right away. And there was also a reply right away. I'm not sure why I'm not having any issues and yet you others are.
I thought it might be related to me updating my avatar. it shows next to my user name. I've logged off and back on. Just tried posting again and it's waiting for approval.The thread got posted right away. I'm not sure why I'm not having any issues and yet you others are.
Darn it. Hope I didn’t type my new user name in wrong. But ContexLion is pretty cool. The posting looks 100% identical there including all icons/methods. Agree that the $99 will keep most users from joining even though it is $1 for first year. The current wrestling board is awesomeThank you, ContextLion and Hotshoe! Maybe we can persuade them to keep the old site around as a help desk for the new site.
What?! Your name is ContexLion! I must be dyslexic because I always thought it was ContextLion.Darn it. Hope I didn’t type my new user name in wrong. But ContexLion is pretty cool. …
"Truck stop."Ok, I've taken some action.
New site information will be posted in the truck stop bathroom in Duncannon Pennsylvania.
For your log in information please call the number directly under
"For good time call PawrestlersinTn" This will be the only way to make this transition under the radar. Thanks for your help and patience in this trying time.
I glad to hear that. Will our BWI post counts still apply to tie-breakers?At a minimum, KYPSW will continue on 247. I've been cross-posting it over there, allowing guys from there to participate. I will keep an open mind on the new site, but am not likely to spend more than $1 on it.
