    Football Squares game

    Hey everybody,

    We're running our Football Squares game online again. This year, the prizes are stays at the Mount Washington Hotel and ski lift passes to Bretton Woods. About 3,000 people have signed up so far.

    You pick one square, and it's good for three games: the divisional Pats v. Texans playoff, the AFC Conference Championship, and the Super Bowl.

    You get different numbers for every quarter so that nobody is stuck with bad numbers for a whole game. We'll generate new numbers for each game.

    Here's the link:

    Why did you not announce who won last year as you promised?

    Re: Football Squares game

    trying to get a squares game out here with some people.  We would only have 25 squares.  How do I do that?  Is it 0/9, 2/8, 3/6, 4/5 across?  Or do I group the numbers differently.

    Thanks for any help.

    Go 0-9 and everyone picks 4 squares.  You can have the same numbers for the whole game or re shuffle the numbers for every quarter like BDC does.

    Talking to Dottie is like talking to a brick wall, one of the most useless and unhelpful 'moderators' of any newspaper website forum in the nation.

    Also, if you notice, when you click on a message on someone's profile page, you get directed to the actual message now, not simply to the thread it is in. Slight improvement there

    Still only have 25 messages listed in each profile though, so the utility of this returning feature is limited

    Sorry I've been away guys -- my father is ill and we had to put him in a nursing home today. Age 95 and he's been able to be at home all this time.

    Glad you like that we restored the last-read gold stars and the ignore feature. Right now one of our devs is working on restoring all of the WYSIWYG tools along the bottom of the comment box so that you can add images and emoticons, spell check, etc.

    Hi Dottie   I hope your dad is wel and the family is coping as best as can be expected.  Being we're all full of suggestions, and from me their free, I'm going to give you one. 

    Pick a handful of resident mods.  Some of the perpetual posters.  Not me.  This way this place can police itself.  That takes the political heat off you and gives you some go to people to solve issues with personality issues.  I did mention their free, didnt i ? This way you and yours can just keep on the functionality of the joint    Oh yeah buy oil futures now and sell just before Labor Day.

    I nominate Muzzwell for the position

    He seems like a wise, old head to me. He'd overlook most of the trash talk that goes on here and intervene only when absolutely necessary. Just like any good moderator

    Who else is fit for the position of "resident mod"? Any volunteers?
