You most likely have noticed our traditional ShoutBox that was above the forum index has been gone for the last few days. It has been replaced by what you see on the upper left of your screen (providing you have a screen resolution greater than 1024x768).

The old ShoutBox queries the database every second, even if there was nothing new to display. This was causing a lot of unnecessary database hits and slowing the site down.

Last night I threw together the Fan Shout to replace the ShoutBox.


The GameDay Chat uses the old ShoutBox and will be enabled on days of a special event. (e.g. Packers games, Draft days, etc ....)

I've attached a screen shot to show you what it looks like on a 1366x768 screen resolution.



If you want to change your screen resolution.

since my tweets and recent posts are at the bottom of my page I assume my resolution isn't that high. Does that mean I wont have the fan box or that it too will be at the bottom of the page?

You must be using 800x600 or 1024x768 then. Ramp that resolution up!!

Currently, the column on the left is simply hidden on smaller resolutions. So you will not see it.

It should be a simple fix to change the resolution but I can't seem to find where to make the adjustment.

Click your FireFox browser window to put it in focus and then at the same time hit CTRL + 0 and that should reset your zoom. If not, try holding CTRL and scrolling up/down.

One issue with the fan shout when in a thread.. it resets the focus to the end of the page.

It only does that when I click on "last post" for the thread.

Bring back the permanent shout area, It is like a Chat Room/Bulletin Board. Let's move forward , not backward.

I'd like to see the shout box stay open all day Sunday so we can chat about all the other games. I think it was shut down right after the Packers game was over. Would like to see it open for the late games too.

The problem with having the Chat open 24/7 is (like I said in the opening post) the extensive database hits that cause the site to slow down. Maybe we could put the Fan Shout on top of the Forum index in its place?

I think that is doable and it makes sense too.

Zero2Cool (20-May) : Research projects can be tons of fun!
Nonstopdrivel (20-May) : I don't have any hospital responsibilities, just the endless onboarding process. I'm working on some research projects too.

Cheesey (14-May) : My favorite position on the Packers is the PUNter!😝
Cheesey (14-May) : Does that mean I should be PUNished?🤪
Nonstopdrivel (12-May) : I'd say most of your puns recently have been more of a stretch than string cheese, but Nostridamus was a masterpiece. I wouldn't nominate it for a Pullitzer anyway.
Cheesey (12-May) : LOL Wayne! I appreciate your comment. You and Non made me feel my “cheesiness” is still worth something here.
wpr (12-May) : I will apologize Cheesey. I saw it and considered it to be the typical cheese spread. I failed to recognize the masterpiece of pun it truly is. mea culpa
Cheesey (12-May) : Nonstop, I honestly wondered if anyone would get it! And you probably were the only one! Good job!🤪
Nonstopdrivel (11-May) : "Nostridamus" -- that might be your best pun yet, not least because it took me almost an entire day to get it.

KRK (10-May) : Seriously, IMO he was excellent in the role he was in the previous year
KRK (10-May) : To be fair to the guy it snot all his fault.

Nonstopdrivel (9-May) : Filling out background check applications is so fucking depressing.
KRK (9-May) : Beast, where did you see that...re Watson/Bears.
beast (9-May) : And PFT pulls back information from before his draft (including his own words), to suggest Watson might currently be mistaken.
beast (9-May) : Deshaun Watson tweets "The bears NEVER ONCE talked to me.." when aruging against the Bears evaluating him... on a discussion about teams choicing QB based on race.
Zero2Cool (8-May) : Yup. Make it like week 11 or something. Have some Hall of Fame induction thing or something.
Nonstopdrivel (8-May) : I would rather the entire league took off the same week.
Cheesey (8-May) : I don’t like it either, Zero. But there’s not much we can do about it.
Zero2Cool (8-May) : It'd be more important if the BYE was later. I don't like how the NFL does their BYE weeks.
Smokey (8-May) : Week 5 Bye as important as a game !
Zero2Cool (7-May) : And now it's being said Vikings week 1 vs Packers.
