This place is on point?

I am chatting in real time about Vikings football.

Cool!
This could get addictive.

the subsilver board setting also loads much faster. (It looks better to me anyway).

Go to your profile, scroll down to board style, and change it from FF to subsilver and see if that helps.

With draft time coming up (high site traffic), it's best to run subsilver anyway.

i always use the subsilver setting. for looks and performance.

when webby first beta tested the new red-themed background he showed it to me and i said it was very "Dracula inducing."

he was not amused.

I don't know if this exactly belongs here, but i've been a little bit irked with the general and news thread posting from some of the valhalla members. I understand we are, for the most part, vikings fans, and that can make us "homers", but when people only post stuff pro-vikings, and/or put down others views without any regard to the validity of other peoples statements, it ends up A) causing a lot of very anti-viking sentiment or B) causing pro-vikings posts to lose credibility. It almost makes me wary to post in the news or general threads, because I feel like anyone who posts there now is labeled as having blinders on, and too die hard to have un-skewed viewpoints on other teams, players, and personnel. It doesn't stop me from posting, but it make the conservation a lot more negatively pointed.

I think a lot of what has happened is that the vikings have had little relative success in recent years beyond AP, the favre years, and now Zimmer and the coming of TB. With us not having a true system born franchise QB in quite some time, we are latching onto Teddy as being the best thing since sliced bread, and we are almost boasting about it in a nauseating state, to the point that anything valhalla posters say about him in other forums is discredited as being a homer-ism.

All i'd ask is that it be tapered back a little bit, and not so boastful. Of course, post what you want, it's a free country/forum, and I have no say in the rules here, but the back and forth recently has seemed to have spurned a lot of quickly accelerating negative back and forth, and people have been getting warnings about it. Give credit to those when credit is due, be proud of what we have going for us in Minnesota, and don't forget that there is 31 other teams out there whose fan base aren't all gushing about what's happening in MN.

Just my two cents

My advice is to always pause and reread before you hit that Submit button if you are emotional when you respond to someone who is purely baiting you.

I generally ignore people who claim that I have blinders on, because often it is they who have the blinders on and don't have an open mind to the possibility that I could be right. It's a waste of my time to respond to them directly.

Always follow this tip:

Idea If you have a negative comment, please be respectful and never make the comment personal. If you get negative feedback on your post, keep an open mind and don't get defensive. We're unique here in that we promote respect and intelligent conversation. Arguments don't add anything positive.

+1... i think that has been one of the bigger issues. I have pretty tough skin, i don't care what people say about my posts, but it almost is embarrassing sometimes how egregious some of the stuff gets between some valhalla members and other posters, and I don't like having our corner of the forums being labeled badly because of a few people who have homeristic tendancies.

This is a really unique and cool place. It should be fun Viking fans chatting with Viking fans. There are other post boards with Vike fans. Very few have this kind of activity on them.

Internet post boards in general attract flamboyant people. Many produce a façade of a GM or football coach that missed there opportunity to be a professional in this field.

It's simply something you have to weed through to chat football with fellow fans. I simply ignore the posts that are looking to have a 20 minute internet war. Even those that bait or try and rattle you. Ignore is always the best option.

It's a shame there are people like that in this world. The population of them is far greater then the others who simply want to talk football.

My two cents.

There is no solution to these people.

Also I will add during inter personal communications it is tough to read the posters emotions or emotional intent. Much of which can be construed in the "wrong tone" leading to problems that never existed in the first place.
