      Hi. I notice that occasionally some threads get "taken over" by two arguers. Usually these participants are not the OP and the argument is not on topic. Is there a way to remove these guys from my view of the thread but not from other threads that they may be contributing to?
      1. Ian
        There's not yet, unfortunately but that's certainly a good suggestion and I'll look into it to see if I can come up with a solution. But otherwise I appreciate your kind words, and thank you for taking a moment to reach out :)

      Hi. Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy this site. I use it daily. It's the best way for me to gather all news Patriots and participating in interesting conversations (mostly reading not posting). The feature set and overall operation of this site is the BEST of its kind. Thank you and your colleagues for your efforts!

      Hi Ian, I am not sure if you care, but in your most recent submission, you spelled Ted Olson's name two different ways. Certainly no big deal at all, I just didn't know if you cared one way or the other.

        Actually, I appreciate you pointing that out. Obviously an error on my part, so thank you for reaching out to bring it o my attention :)

      For the past several days, after I log onto the the PatsFans website, I receive malware on my PC which inhibits my use of the Google search engine. I can clean up the malware with several software packages that I have installed, but it is an annoyance. Yesterday, I did not log onto PatsFans and had no problem. When I use Chrome, the problem with my search engine does not appear.


      1. Ian
        Hey Norm, that's bizarre. Do you have any info as far as what warnings you're getting, etc.? I haven't received any other messages yet but obviously I want to make sure there aren't any issues.

        When I last ran one of my malware programs to clean my PC, several of the malware items were named adPower.net, adhigh.net, and ad.360yield.com. They seem to create cookies and track the sites I visit.

      I am trying to attach a video that I taped from nfl mobile that is a commercial they are showing all day long blatantly trolling Brady about deflategate. I do not know how to attach the video - I can also email it to you. Please help

      hey boss....thought you'd like to know. I had to download YesScript to disable a script running on the site. I think it's associated with the drop down box when you cursor over "alerts" up top. This problem has persisted all last month until I finally had to do something about it. Perhaps you'd like to look into it. If not, no worries.The board is trouble free for me now. I'm on a home PC BTW, with jacked up memory.

        I am using Firefox...I use nothing else. I have Chrome enabled and IE also but since I enabled YesScript in Firefox, I have had ZERO glitches. Everything is up to the day up to date Ian.

        I'm an ex-MSCE so I'm not really a newb to this stuff. I noticed this glitch back at the end of August/early September when you made a few additions. Like I said, I believe it's the drop down box up top named "alerts". It doesn't drop down now but I'm not freezing screens either.

        I know you're not a noob ;) But the Alert thing isn't mine, that's a Xenforo thing so I'll have to test it on FireFox and see if I can duplicate the problem and see if there's a fix for it. Appreciate you pointing it out and hope things are well :)

      Hello, Ian. I don't know if it's just me, but the site is working very badly at present on my computer (Chrome, MacBook). I think it's because of the tweets at the top. It's very slow, I can't scroll and there appear to be sounds trying to load that don't. Sorry if this is something I'm doing wrong.

      Ian, I tweeted earlier today that the site was down. After I got your response, I rebooted my computer and all is well. Strange thing is that I was unable to get on using my iPhone over the WiFi in my house, but was able to do so after rebooting my computer. That is strange!

      Hey, Ian,
      There was a category in the forum about someone losing all of their Super Bowl recordings when their DVR crashed. That got me thinking...I have the first three "Three Games To Glory" DVD. I'd be happy to give them up if someone would give you $50 or $100 to support your site. It's up to you if you'd like to take me up on the offer.

      1. Ian
        That's very thoughtful of you - but I'm not going to ask you to give those up for that - those are far too valuable :)

      How do you post an article from a newspaper? Just quote a paragraph, and leave an URL? Or just an URL?

      Thank you. Tom444(Dave)

      Hi Ian,

      I am a pats season ticket holder. Unfortunately, because of unforeseen expenses, I need to "sit out" next season (2015). I had someone who wanted to split the games but they backed out last minute. Can I post something? What is the best forum to use?

      Thanks for this site and showing a true fan site.

      New forum's been in place a while now... looks great! My one feedback is the size of our profile sidebars creates a lot of whitespace in the messages. The previous Patsfans forum beat everyone else hands-down in the content-to-space ratio... (some forums felt like 80% signature pics and 20% one-line replies per page). I hope this reply makes sense!

      Hi Ian, nice board.

      Be aware it was necessary for me (for some reason) to clear my patsfans cookie to be able to get into my account. There may be others with same problem.

      Thanx for all your efforts, I'm giving you an additional donation as well.

      Hi Ian,
      I posted a thread in the Draft Forum regarding a possible live draft discussion and based on some responses, I think it might be a popular exercise. A member mentioned an update coming and that it might be nice if it could be held here right on the site in the chatroom if it is working properly. I wanted to see if this would be possible to do here on the site. I was thinking a Sunday morning here in the States so that other members from other countries could participate on that Sunday evening. Please let me know if you think this is doable here on the site and if you are okay with something like this.
      1. Ian
        I just now noticed this message, so I apologize for the delay in getting back to you. I'm working on a new chat function for this season that hopefully will be available in the next month or two. Just need some extra $$ to purchase the license to install it.
