    One thing I'd love: no multiple personalities

    One thing that got real old on UFN was the multiple logins/user names and pseudo trolls. IT just seemed childish. I dunno, maybe I’m alone in that and others got a kick out if it.

  • Nittany Ute

    I totally agree. It got old really quickly.

  • I never understood how anyone was a ‘pseudo’ troll. Either you’re a troll or you aren’t. The ‘pseudo’ trolls were trolls. I liked them though, had many myself.

    • We will rock U

      I guess I just mean the regular posters who also wanted to stir things up just for s**ts and giggles. I just didn’t get it.

  • Tacoma Ute

    Ir depends. Some of them were pretty clever and funny back in the day. Many are quite bad though. I tried my hand on that once but I think I was closer to bad than clever and funny so I quickly stopped.

    • AZswayze

      Huh? Who were you?

      • Tacoma Ute

        I was GregKitesPustules. It didn’t go over very well although a couple people liked it.

  • Uterider

    The Loyter collective is great.

    • We will rock U

      I just don’t get the loyters.

  • Uterider

    Oh neither do I. But that poster’s ability to insult his other profiles crack me up.

  • Tony

    Well, this is one of many “situations” which will surely arise and some kind of policy allowing it or not will be decided, maybe even by the community itself.

    IP addresses are logged for each user, so many times I will be able to tell if someone has multiple accounts.

  • Jumpmasterute

    I can’t help but think that sfork had several accounts.

  • Signing up I was informed my password was very week

    So the first thing that happens here is I’m insulted.

    I think I’m gonna like it here.

  • Tony

    We have an insult package I can install.. Haha.

    • Uterider

      It would be my honor to post the first insult in the insult category.

      • Tacoma Ute

        Insults have more impact when they’re posted outside of the insult category because you don’t see them coming. 😉

    • UteStuckInSeattle

      Does it show an iFrame with UFN in it?

  • UteStuckInSeattle

    LOL.

    The password algorithm does seem a bit wonky in what it considers “weak”. Is it something that can be configured?

    • Tacoma Ute

      Try the Wolfram Alpha app. It has a great function for determining the strength of passwords, as well as a zillion other cool things.

  • Puget Ute

    You need to change your password to something more stout than 6 asterisks…

  • First time poster, long time Ute fan

    Looking forward to some engaging, insightful conversations on this site. Thanks for creating it.

  • Tony

    You are welcome.

  • Anyone find examples of good BBPress forums?

    This one is an example on the bbpress website:

    Looks like there are some plugins that are already developed.

  • Tony

    Yep. Been doing lots of reading.

    Any others you’d all like to see?

  • javadave

    Those guys are all great, but I’m hoping there are many others who will come out of the woodwork and support this site. It would be nice to get some new blood infused into the community.

  • We will rock U

    If they all come, can we get Moose to leave?

    • Lick my balls

      • We will rock U

        There’s the Moose we all love 🙂

    PSA for new users…In order to select the name you would like to appear under publicly on the board, click on your username, then select “profile” and then “edit”. You can then put your public username in the name line.

  • Tony

    Thanks. I didn’t even know that.

  • Edit posts?

    Any way to edit posts?

  • GadValleyUte

    yeah if it’s your post there’s an edit link right next to the reply link in the top right of the post

  • BioUte

    Thanks, I see it now. Although it doesn’t appear in the one post that I want to edit even though it’s my post.

    Biggest Surprise

    Who has been the biggest surprise so far this young football season? I think an obvious answer is Britain Covey. He came in with a lot of hype, but did anyone expect him to star, and quickly become an effective starter?

    I’m also really starting to notice Kylie Fitts. Expectations were high for him, and he’s lived up to it. He’s been getting to the opposing QB and making big things happen.

    Any other surprises, positive or negative?

  • MauchDawgUte

    I thought this would be the year KScott finally had a breakout season. I feel like the dude works so hard but things never go his way. Case in point the flea flicker last night. First time in a while he gets a ton of separation and the ball is overthrown. The guy is so like able and I want him to succeed so bad. Hopefully it can happen during the remainder of the season. 🙂

    • Damage U

      I really like KScott as well, fan favorite and very likeable. Like you said hard worker but a little snake bit as well. He seems to get killed on his blocking. During the Michigan game I chalked it up to going against Peppers. I don’t remember anything off the top of my head during the USU game but he got smoked a time or two last night.

  • I just can’t believe we don’t use Pita Taumoepenu more often, he’s a menace, has had an impact on every play I’ve seen him in. Fanaika has not lived up to the hype.

  • RedLine

    Positive Surprise: Wilson’s production in first two games.

    Negative Surprise: The kicking game. I know we’re only a few games in and the bar is set high for them based on the last year’s performance but overall I think they’ve performed very mediocre. Hope they can turn it around.

  • The offense playcalls have a sense of direction and purpose. They play to personal strengths rather than “do this play or else”. I thought it was all coach speak when they were saying it in Fall camp but it really is true they use players abilities. This team reminds me of the 2012 Utes a lot.

  • Tony

    Covey is #1 surprise.

    Lack of a defensive rush/sacks is a big one too.

  • Direct link from Site Wide Activities

    I was just gonna post about how nice it would be to be able to click straight to a specific post instead of just the thread from the “Site Wide Activities” feed. It turns out you can – the link appears to be in the time stamp. Maybe that’s normal and everyone knew, but in case you didn’t there it is.

  • Tony

    Thanks. For the most part, RED text is a link here.

  • Forum 1 organization

    Maybe this is personal bias but I think ordering the sports either by current season or overall popularity makes sense. I think Football should be top, followed by Basketball and then don’t care what comes below. Having baseball on top seems out of place to me.

  • Tony

    Yeah one DUMB thing about this forum engine is that it orders stuff alphabetically. Thus the numbers in front of the main forums, so I could order them a way I wanted.
