    I'll just piggyback on what some other users have said, an improved APP.

    I used this site all throughout high school and college when i was spending hours per day on the computer. Once I got a real job and stopped spending hours on a computer, it was no longer convenient for me to post here.

    I also don't watch soccer and many of the others don't watch. There is no option for NFL or MLB and those are the biggest threads on this site. If I log on and want to see a score, I have to go to another site. It wasn't like that last year.

    Also, there is a bit of hypocrisy regarding some of the taboos and rules while there is "Boobies of the Day" and "The Hotness of Sports" and "WAG of the week" sitting beside the sports stories.
    I can't say sh-t or a--hole and can't make an un PC comment or one about giant **** but the owners of the site are happy to put a giant set of **** along the side and very un PC comments with it?
    That is presuming that the vast majority of PSD are straight males. So I think they should put some guys with huge cocks on the side. You don't even need the guys, just the dicks, because all we see is the ****.

    Edit- so ironic and quite funny that the breasts can be displayed but the word t---i---t cannot. Every bleeped word was that word starting with a T, ending with a T and I in the middle.

    I think the rules are too strict in general. Mods step in and warn or give infractions way too easily and it seems like they are given to those who actually contribute most frequently and most productively.
    There are many occasions where there is an obvious troll and the thread starts to sort them out but the mods ban everyone involved. This is similar to what Jaysleafs98 said but not as harsh. I think you can let people sort themselves out, until you can't. We know when you guys should step in and I have actually suggested it a few times when things were getting ugly.


    I digress. I know that the latter two ideas will fall on deaf ears but I would really love it if the score scroll could be changed back to how it was.

    Landry - 64 GP, 57 GS, 400 catches (70.2%) for 4,038 yds (10.1 AVG), 22 TD

    Huh. Wonder why Landry is getting paid so much...

    improved app #1. I use tapatalk but still don't use it much. I'm on PSD at work (desk job) and that's about it anymore.

    I just think a lot of people don't sit at a computer much anymore. If they do, it's social media and not sports forums. Maybe contests and making this more a 'gaming' forum would boost interest. Contests all of that.

    The Redrafts use to be the best thing about these sites. Interest has been lost but I could see more interest being gained if awards were given to those winners.

    1a. Gifs in signatures should not be auto-play. Click to play would significantly decrease page load time.

    Post quality problems with certain users are bad enough already...

    Don't most sites get around that by allowing authenticated users to turn on 'adult mode' so they can see through the sensor while a bot scan would see the censored version?

    I placed your concerns up for discussion among the mods. We'll also compile a list of things to improve that will be sent to SDI in hopes that they can be accommodated.

    To me, I don't see why it shouldn't be a quick fix for adding scores atop the pages. As for the uncensoring some words, personally, I would hope to be able to uncensor certain words, but we'll have to see where the discussion leads.


    Thanks!

    Well played.

    Not these. These are part of PSD. At least on my psd screen there are all those pictures. I do not mix sports chat room and masturbation sites. It's too confusing. My psyche couldn't deal with the inevitable transference from one to the other. Which would cause me to become visibly aroused by a touchdown but then when my GF was feeling randy, i would tackle her and scream at her for dropping the ball.

    As far as the WAG of the week and all of that, again, SDI controls that from a content perspective. As far as why certain words are censored, I will hazard a guess- it has to do with advertising. Yes, it does seem that those contradict each other, but most places use bots to scroll what is typed out, not actually looking at things like the homepage. At least that is what I experienced on another site that was blacklisted by Google Adsense for that.

    We are looking at re-writing the rules and seeing if there is some way we can have expiring infractions. However, going with that, I would also want to look at escalating infractions as well.

    As far as moderation goes, I think that the staff we have does a great job at discussing things and giving more informal warnings rather than infraction points, and it is because we realize that there are finite points. We try to take history into account- both recent as well as in the past (used to try and give leniency if someone hasn't been infracted for two years.) However, if there are some specific things that I am missing with this, I would love to hear more.
    Much appreciated. The scroll is basically useless right now. Even the soccer teams are on break. It would be nice to have NFL and MLB scores back up there.

    I do agree that things have been less rigid and I think we all appreciate that. I also am well aware of how quickly things can get out of hand so I don't envy your jobs.

    Maybe we could have an essay assignment on why we chose PSD over the others and that could reduce accrued points?

    I know it was rejected but clearing the ban list is probably the best idea. The site hurt itself badly with a stalinistic purge. It would be a quick way to get back some users that generated discussion

    I clearly don't know what sort of revenue is being generated by posting 1-3 new naked ladies on the homepage daily, but I don't see why PSD would value this revenue as anything beneficial to the forum. People come here for sports, not for boobs. Well, maybe I'm wrong, but that's entirely the point - the people PSD should want to attract would be coming here for sports, not for boobs.

    If you want to drive up activity, and in turn generate more revenue, depending on something superficial and irrelevant to sports seems nonsensical. This could either drive existing users away or be a huge turnoff to new users when that's the first thing they see on the homepage.

    I can see the logic of a lot of faults with PSD and how the site has declined, but I cannot understand in the slightest why this has become a focus, or how anyone can think it's beneficial to the site.

    All that being said, I understand if there's nothing you can do to change this, but I'll hold out hope.

    Maybe the news/article section actually needs to post legit news and not all hypothetical articles are repeat/copied articles.

    You make this a legit news site and the forum/comment sections become more frequent. You look at facebook, mlbtr, espn, twitter, etc and you have multiple upon multiple comments on specific articles.

    It's a little different than a forum, i understand that, but maybe there can be a way that the articles link to the forums themselves.

It seems like too many people now want to just throw something out there and then use the defense "well that's my opinion" when someone actually brings research into it to show their "opinion" is flawed.

    The challenge is I don't know how you get more quality posters active in the forums
    You start by banning the people who answer every question with "well I use the eye test and I say soandso is great".

    Activity comes from fun, active communication and discussions. Other things are things some members may care about, but don't matter to general new users.

    You just need to have engaged communication for active and repeat members. Which means, new members can't be attacked for thinking differently and discussions should be encouraged.

    Sometimes, discussions are so easily discouraged around here that it makes people not want to come back.

    My opinion of course, but we as a community, tend to attack when an opinion is ridiculous or different, and instead need to be welcoming and encouraging.
