Just a couple pointers from a resident 247er...
Instead of posting a +1 or a this, you can push the green up arrow on the bottom right of a post. If you dont like the post feel free to use the red down arrow. This creates a star ranking for specific users that get up-voted or down voted. You can see in under the handles and if you scroll over the stars you will see the actual ranking
edit: If you upvote or downvote the OP 5 times, the topic will be rated and will have a + or - value you will see on the board... Kind of equates to the star value given to threads on TOSr
You can PM people by using the "inbox" on the top right of the board
The Blue Board is a all team message board, lots of football and lots of OT stuff, comparable but better than the main board on TOS.
If you "follow" a board there will be a link along the top of the page next to inbox that says "my boards" you can easily pass from board to board quickly. For example I follow the VOTH board, the OT board and the Blue Board...
Cant think of anything else at this time, but thought I might help a few of you out!

but how will i get my post count up? and since i can't figure out the smiley thing now --maybe it is a work computer thing -- i will just add this: =)
thanks for the info
To do you just type ["biggrin"] with out the quotation marks... you just gotta learn the key words...
On all computers I have been on there is a smiley box next to this box I am typing in right now. The mobile site does not have that.
And feel free to still +1, just letting everyone know of the other options... I mean how you think Hawkifish has got over 6k post...

ahhh, i was clicking on the icon to the right of the box, and then it brought up the list and I clicked on the word with the  thinking it would bring it up...but it just gave me a box with the original message in it that I would have to close out to go back to typing my message,
uh... havent seen that before
might be a work computer thing (the computers we use are pretty slow to begin with)...will check it out on my computer when i get home in about an hour or so from now.
Also gotta work on that avatar and sig brah
Haha messing with ya fish... Do you think itd be a good idea to pin this thread and use it for getting people used to the features for our new members?
i never had one at the other site...guess I need to work on that.
Yeah good idea. No guarantees that a Todd won't unpin it though, I hate having a bunch of stuff pinned at the top.
You can say that. BUT, under no circumstances will jokes made about me be tolerated.
Good call on posting some pointers for the new people. I've pinned this, so people will be able to refer to it whenever they want.
I agree, but just for a week or two while the masses start to venture over here... it's nice to get everyone to join in on the voting and learning some of the ins and outs... I'll change the thread title to be more politically correct...
I was just about to suggest that.
Gold medals aren't really made of gold. They're made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.
Roflmao smileys will be perceived as insults. Ban ban ban ban ban ban ban.
i But you post pad so much that it's hard not to joke about you....
Sine Missione -- Never be a spectator for unfairness or stupidity, argue for arguments sake; the grave will give plenty of time for silence.
I don't post pad. I just tell everyone how I feel on every subject. Honestly though, most if my posts come from tBB. I have almost 1500 alone in the LNC.
was definitely a work computer thing.
Good to hear
there...got the sig set up....all pics taken by me.....it works for now
Very nice.... Good seats for the fball game!
yeah, guy i used to work with, him and his brother have like 8 season tickets. 2 where I was at, 2 on the other side of the field in about the same location, and 4 somewhere else.
he offered me a few games that he still had tickets for, and I couldn't go...was home watching my boy. then he offered me the michigan game, had my schedule clear and I was all over it. The next week I had seats way up in the north endzone for the michigan state game that I got from the hawkeyesports site.. it just didn't feel the same after that michigan game.
i told him to keep me in mind for a game or two next year. I get to about 2 games a year ---sometimes one, sometimes 3. I like going to the games....but there are days I just like to watch from the comfort of home, or at a bar, so I am content with the games I do get to a year.
