Woah! First rule of PTATE, you're not supposed to talk about PTATE!

 

:whistle:

Yes, but in Super PTATE (SPTATE), we're allowed to talk about PTATE because it's one of the lower levels of hell and we're elevated above that... it's funny though, in our SPTATE meeting with Jeff (most people call him Mr. Lurie), we were laughing about all those poor slobs in PTATE. Then he handed out the Cubans and poured the Cognac and served the Lobster tails and Caviar and we watched some Eagles football.

Ah the perks...

I could deal with some lobster tails while watching Eagles football!

I actually haven't had any lobster since I was a kid. My parents would get it on New Years Eve, but they stopped doing that back in the mid to late 70's.

The forum should be called Super Posts About Da Eagles.

Call a spade a spade.

This problem has been around for the past couple of upgrades. Any time I quote something in my post, then under the quote, I make a comment, when I submit the reply my comment from under the quote is moved to be inside the quote.

Here's an example. Go to the post, you'll see that I quoted a paragraph from Wikipedia. The last sentence in the quote box (where the Wikipedia paragraph is), is actually a comment that I made about the question of color rush and alternate jerseys. When I typed it, it was outside of the quote box. But when I submitted it, it got moved inside the quote as if that belongs there, when it doesn't. In order to fix it, I have to do several things and it's really rather annoying.

Dave: Jones has been activated to active roster.  But the depth chart on the front page has not been updated.  Please look into that.

Don’t stress, regardless of a website depth chart listing, Jones will play.

Winning fixes everything, & the whole team just won the Super Bowl, but what was wrong w the D line? Was the flu bug going around? I know the Pats are no joke, but I expected some kind of pass rush & pressure on Brady; don't think I heard Cox mentioned once.

Ignore list and notifications.

For some reason, when those put on ignore respond to any of your posts, you still get a notification that they responded to you.

For example

You've chosen to ignore content by bobbywizdum. Options

I've had that happen a couple of times too, even though all of the check boxes are ticked.

Youtube videos, Tweets and article links don't seem to be embedding.

 

Signed out, then signed back in, that seemed to resolve the issue.

Articles don't seem to be posting in the Eagles News forum section.

Time to slap your IT folks around.

So it appears no one cares that articles aren't being posted to the Eagles News Discussion forum.

Why don't you just delete it from the site.

You'd probably do better if you started a new thread. I don't think Dave comes into this thread.

Good Morning Dave!  I have been posting on this site for over 10 years now and am finding it very hard to continue. The IT department is making it harder and harder to post our thoughts. If this is what they are trying to achieve, they have succeeded. Right now, we are not even reading most of your articles and going right to the last article we could post against which I think was a month ago. So not only are you not getting read as much, but many are getting tired of trying to post their thoughts here. Net result is many have just left the site and given up. I will be doing the same soon. Been rooting for the Eagles since Norm Snead was QB. Not too many know who he was....

 

   Thanks for listening. I realize there is little you can do. Wish we could go back to the previous format....

 

Steve

How is it hard to post your thoughts? When you posted this post, what happened to make it difficult? I post my thoughts on here, pretty much on a daily basis and don't have any difficulty.

  Well, I rarely ever see your thoughts posted, so you don't go where others do. Look, if you like this format, great. I do not and neither do many others who have been posting on here for 10 years plus. We enjoy reading new articles on the Message board and posting comments on that article after we read it. Problem is, no new articles are posted on the message board now. So we are still posting on one that is over a month old.

Old posters like Brizer (GK), JB99, TBone and I have issues with this format. Heck I have been on here since 2007. The others just stopped a few years back and I doubt will return. I email some like CETS, HAMBONE and DWD on a regular basis.

We've talked about this before Stine and I agree. No matter how much we don't like it, the IT peeps keep changing things and not for the better. We've struck up online relationships over the yrs, which isn't appreciated by IT. So much so that I'd rather chat with them elsewhere than here. My allegiance is to myself, the Eagles and to the friends I've made, not to THIS Eagles board who don't seem to want to satisfy our needs. Runs against every successful business model I've ever seen.

I have nearly 80,000 posts on this board and have had over 20,000 posts 'liked'. Are you sure that I'm the one that doesn't 'go where others do'? lol

I've been on the EMB since 2000, 'this format' has been the 'format' since about a month after we lost to the Bucs in the NFCCG, so February 2003. It's had some changes here and there along the way, but the basic 'format' has stayed the same, with the exception of about 2 weeks back around 2012 or 2013 when they moved the board to a whole new platform and then moved back.

I think I have the gist of what you're complaint is though, it used to be that whenever Dave posted a new article on PE.COM, it would also automatically be posted as a topic in the forum entitled: "Eagles News Discussion", is that correct? I just scanned through about 10 pages of that forum, and it looks like it was a seldom used part of the EMB, in terms of both comments and views per posting. Have you been to "The 411"? The sole purpose of that forum is news articles and posting your thoughts on them.

All of that said, I do see that the last article that Dave wrote and was posted to the EMB, was May 8th. I believe that around that time there was an 'upgrade' to the EMB and that probably caused the linkage between PE.COM and the EMB to be broken. I don't believe that Dave reads this thread any longer (and hasn't for a long time), so for this issue, I'd suggest that you either PM @Moderator5 or post a new thread about this issue in Ask Dave to bring it to his attention.

  Yes, that is what I am talking about!  IF you were on this site since 2000, you must know all of the oldtimers I was talking about. Remember DDD? He has disappeared..... I email Lupes all the time.

Did I just hear Nick Foles is going to start tomorrow night against New England? Is Doug Pederson crazy? New England is going to be looking out to hurt someone especially Nick Foles.
