@  METS FANG : (07 Jul 2015 - 13:55)

understood, thank you Dru

@  Drucifer : (07 Jul 2015 - 13:55)

I have emailed Dan the dissatisfaction over the closing of Chat. It is his ideal, so it is his call to make.

@  METS FANG : (07 Jul 2015 - 13:49)

but Yogi is right, you're taking something away that the current members use for a futile purpose. Membership with thrive when the mets are better than a .500 team

@  METS FANG : (07 Jul 2015 - 13:48)

dont get me wrong, I think the upgraded forum is a huge improvement over the last one. I really like it, its smooth and is a great base

@  yogib8 : (07 Jul 2015 - 13:42)

Since the forum upgrade, metfan23 is the only new that has posted more than a handful of times. The growth of the forum is team success driven, not chat board related

@  West Coast M... : (07 Jul 2015 - 13:37)

So what I am hearing is you want to attract new members even if the new formats turns long-time members off and causes them to leave the forum.

@  METS FANG : (07 Jul 2015 - 13:25)

Dru - is that all you take from this discussion?

@  Drucifer : (07 Jul 2015 - 13:19)

I'm not stoppng links to tweets, blogs, new stories, etc. You guys are not smarter or better then other mets fans with opinions. Get over yourselves!.

@  METS FANG : (07 Jul 2015 - 13:19)

as for impressions, I think Yogi's analysis is accurate: Play ball... crickets...

@  METS FANG : (07 Jul 2015 - 13:18)

Personally, I think its a mistake, go onto CBS, ESPN, they all have live game chat occurring because people want to talk in real time, not in spurts reload, reload, reload, post

@  brian stark : (07 Jul 2015 - 13:09)

Maybe a compromise? No tweets, blogs, articles or the like posted in the "game" thread, just put all that stuff in the "series" thread. That way, if you want to talk about the game, you don't have to slog through a bunch of extranious crap and just focus on the game. If you want research or quotes from the blogshpere/internet, check out the series thread? Just my suggestion.

@  Saxon : (07 Jul 2015 - 12:52)

This is what I see when I show up here as a guest: Posted Image

@  DC23 : (07 Jul 2015 - 12:24)

As the forum grows, the shoutbox would cause xomplications and is less feasible

@  DC23 : (07 Jul 2015 - 12:23)

Drew is in charge of thread formatting. The purpose of removing the shoutbox during games is to encourage forum activity within the fame threads. This will show more activity, engaging other users more and incline guests to register

@  West Coast M... : (07 Jul 2015 - 11:51)

Obviously that should be "too" not "to"

@  West Coast M... : (07 Jul 2015 - 11:50)

This move from the shout box to the game day thread is another. Anymore "improvements" and this forum may become to sophisticated for me to continue.

@  West Coast M... : (07 Jul 2015 - 11:49)

I personally do not like some of the latest "improvements" to this forum. Starting with the linking to media articles and blogs clogging up every thread. I go to the threads for the conversation not to look for links to blogs. Most writers of blogs have less knowledge than I do, and I don't know much when compared to some of you guys.

@  yogib8 : (07 Jul 2015 - 11:22)

Every visitor to the site lands on the home page first and the first activity they see is the chat box. Now they will be greeted by ;pb; followed by

@  METS FANG : (07 Jul 2015 - 08:57)

and I fully believe this will cut down significantly on the in game chat/traffic. And maybe I'm confused, but isn't that a BAD thing?

@  METS FANG : (07 Jul 2015 - 08:56)

then factor in having to sort through the massive list of tweets that none of us care about

@  METS FANG : (07 Jul 2015 - 08:55)

Personally, I hate live chatting in a thread. The responses are delayed. You need to consistently manually refresh the page, and it becomes less fluid

@  METS FANG : (07 Jul 2015 - 08:54)

do we really need the drivel discussed during games saved long term?

@  METS FANG : (07 Jul 2015 - 08:53)

apologies, Dan.

@  Saxon : (07 Jul 2015 - 08:50)

I think that the perception is: the shoutbox is a temporary storage (it's gone in a few hours); whereas by having it in the game thread, it shows visitors that there is actual activity during the game...

@  Saxon : (07 Jul 2015 - 08:48)

I believe Dan is

@  Saxon : (07 Jul 2015 - 08:48)

scott isn't the big cheese anymore...

@  METS FANG : (07 Jul 2015 - 08:28)

Scott, I thought the point was for easy game-day communication between board members - what is gained by having the posts in the game day thread rather than in the chat box?

@  Saxon : (07 Jul 2015 - 05:40)

and that my friends, is why I believe that Grandy belongs batting 2nd, not first...batting leadoff, they can bunch all their infielders up between 1st and 2nd...you start having someone faster than him on first base, they can't overshift on him without being worried about the runner exploiting the lack of defense on the other half of the infield

@  Saxon : (07 Jul 2015 - 05:38)

Would the 9th inning have turned out differently without "speed" on first base with a lefty bat up? (yes, I know Cuddyer is not fast, but the Giants treated him like a guy that could run the bases)...without the 1B holding Cuddyer, Kirk's "double" was a routine groundout to the 1B...instead it became a 2nd & 3rd situation with no outs

Why is chat off line during games??

OK, ShoutBox Is now OFFLINE

@  brian stark : (06 Jul 2015 - 21:03)

Except for Gardner. I voted for Dozier.

@  brian stark : (06 Jul 2015 - 21:01)

Same here...

@  Drucifer : (06 Jul 2015 - 20:54)

OK I voted at least 50x for Famila & Gardner until I kept making errors

@  Saxon : (06 Jul 2015 - 19:25)

we have a series thread? Where?

@  brian stark : (06 Jul 2015 - 19:10)

Jeurys should be on the team. Won't be (unless someone drops out), but should be.

@  Drucifer : (06 Jul 2015 - 18:31)

Just Mets ‏@justmets
Update: Jacob deGrom selected to All-Star team, Jeurys Familia in Final 5 vote. http://wp.me/p5IeT0-2ly #Mets

last question. who says its not working? 2 bad starts in 7 games...

@  METS FANG : (06 Jul 2015 - 13:48)

plus, why would you bump someone who has gone 33 innings in June with a 3 ERA (11ER/13R),

@  METS FANG : (06 Jul 2015 - 13:46)

also, give it 3 starts, and the cycle becomes standard
