it should be working with IE 11.  What is wrong?

Have you tried chrome or firefox?

It won’t let me quote or type anything. When I try to use the like icon it only likes I cant choose from the other options. Perhaps it’s the result of a firmware upgrade at work. Never had the problem before. Now I can only respond from my phone. Just wondering.  Says I’m logged in but almost seems like I’m not. I’ll give it more time.

Another question for @Nadine regarding the new site....

 

When you click on "Schedule" all you get is the regular season schedule.    There pre-season schedule is NOT there.      Also, in the past,  you used to be able to access past schedule/results in a pull-down menu.     That too is no longer available.

 

Will any of that change?

 

Many thanks for your efforts....

I cant Post either while using IE. That is all I have used in the 3 years I have been here. What was happening to you was happening to me, it started Sunday. Download Chrome if you have a laptop and you wont have that problem. It only takes a couple of minutes. After I downloaded Chrome on Sunday I haven't had any problems. Chrome is faster as well.

That's in IE11 right? What happens when you try to quote someone.

Is the like not working properly anywhere?

Quoting is fine on my iPhone. iPad is slow but that is an older device. IE11 nothing happens. Then when I like on IE11 it refreshes the screen and just likes but it doesn't give option to respond or quote. Like you said maybe older versions aren't capable but hopefully it gets improved.

@Nadine

I wanted to report that today, I was unable to access the forums or personal messages for at least 2 hours. I could sign in but once I tried to select a forum, I received error messages or the format looked completely different (3rd pic). Also that circle (2nd pic) appears very frequently and lasts at least a minute, most of the time a lot longer. I have also received "504 Gateway time-out" messages, but I have seen those in the past.

 

The site also has been significantly slower since the last change. Hopefully some of the these issues can be corrected so that we can continue to enjoy the forum as we always have. Thank you. :)

@Savage @NFLfan @2006Coltsbestever

 

What browser and what browser version are you using? When you use another browser, is it better?

 

I use Chrome 67. I also tried my phone's Samsung Internet browser and received the same error messages when I tried to select one of the forums. If I am remembering correctly, this occurred around 4:30 pm to about 7 pm ET on Sunday. Some of the mods were logged in at the time. I wonder if they experienced the same issues.

 

Edit: I checked the first screenshot that I took. The time on there was exactly 4:30. That means that the issues I was having started before that.

I use Google Chrome now. Since I have been using it I haven't had much problems. I was getting the 504 Gateway Timeout yesterday for about an hour but other than that, for a week I have been good. I had to download Google Chrome though because this Site wouldn't let me Post using IE. I have used IE for the 3 years I have been here up until last week. When I try and use IE it is like the Site doesn't acknowledge me, I can sign in but cant Post.

YEah same with me with IE. I can’t download on work pc so I can’t chsnge browser. Posting from phone on data is a pain until I get home. Hopefully there will be a solution to include these other browsers or traffic will certainly slow down I would imagine.

I am not sure what that deal is. I was Posting on IE last Sunday just fine, I logged off. Then logged back on an hour later and it wouldn't let me Post. Very odd as when I went to Post it wouldn't let me do anything. It doesn't acknowledge you. Google Chrome has been great. I Post from a laptop and I am able to take it to work with me as well. My work computer also has IE so I am lucky there. It is a Website problem because my IE works on YouTube and news websites.

Yesterday, you posted a comment in the Baseball thread. Soon after, almost no comments were posted anywhere on the forum for at least another hour. I assumed everyone was having the same issue I was having (see a few posts preceding this one). Did you attempt to post a comment after your post in the Baseball thread?

I do like the new look for sure, does anyone know how to make the i's normal. i's look more like lower case L's.  I use google chrome normally.  Wondering if there's anything I can do with the font.

For @Nadine

 

Apologies that I keep finding more and more glitches.    As I surf around the new website,  I'm not looking for issues,   but I am stumbling upon them.

 

So, for example,  the team announced promotions for a bunch of executives under Ballard.     I went to the page that holds all the names of the execs....     and the names are only names.    They are NOT links as they've been in the past.    So, for example,  you used to be able to click on Ballard's name and get his profile and resume',  same with Hogan and Dodds and other execs.     Not any more.    They're just names and there's nothing to click on.

 

And the same with the highest execs....   Irsay,  his daugters,  and the other front office top execs.    Nothing to click on.      Just names.  

 

Have to believe this was not intentional.      Hope this will be corrected at some point.

 

Many thanks for your efforts on our behalf in these and other matters.....

I like the new format. The whole not being able to Post on IE kind of threw me off but because the Site made changes I figured it would work on a different Browser. I like Google Chrome better anyway, it's faster.

I find that the lower case "i" looks like the lower case "L" on the desktop version. It is hard to see that there is a point on top of the "i". They look fine on my cell. 

 

Btw, I tried accessing the site from my work computer that uses IE-11. It was terrible. I could not write comments, messages, or give "likes". Worse, I was unable to sign out. So, I am still signed in on my work computer. I will check tomorrow morning if I could sign out. I don't want to be signed in permanently.

That is what it was doing it to me last Sunday and still does it. IE still doesn't work on my Laptop either. When it doesn't let you sign out, just X off the Site and clear you search history. By clearing your search history it will log you out.

It’s pretty dead as far as football news goes so it probably isn’t a big deal and I would say people have browser options except those like myself on work pc. But a lot won’t go to the effort to download a browser just for one website...so if it isn’t fixed by season it could cause some to leave. I mean I couldn’t even send a private message either on IE. I would assume it’s still a popular browser.

All I have ever used is IE since I have had a computer or Laptop and that has been years. I just figured what the heck, I will download Chrome and see what happens. It only took 2 minutes, it's safe and runs faster than IE.

Check if the IE on your work computer is the most recent version. If not, update it.

Nadine, I don't know if this has been addressed but I noticed that when I click on the icon to see who reacted to a post all I get is a box with a circle going round and round.  I end up having to exit the browser and then relaunch.  I looked at a couple of other areas too, the same thing occurred when I clicked on my picture, if I wanted to change it, on my profile page.  It does this on my computer and my phone.

If you are using Internet Explorer, make sure you are using the latest version.

In fact, whatever browser you are using, make sure you have the most recent version.

If the problem persists, let me know

Chrome is all I use on desktop, & I use Safari on mobile since it's the default browser on Apple devices. Both are light years better than IE, welcome to the revolution!

If you scroll all the way down, you'll see preseason games show up underneath of the regular season schedule, & the dropdown menu on the top left allows you to select past season's schedules with results of each game.

Same thing has happened to me on my cell. I had to close the window and re-open it, as it seemed to freeze the website. However, that circle (picture below) will stop spinning after about 2.5 minutes (I timed it a few times). That feels like an eternity nowadays.

 

I use Chrome and it is the latest version.

My guess is, NFLfan's settings on her computer are probably set to clear her Cache when she when she shuts her computer down. That would automatically log her off without her actually logging off while in here.

    • Remember,  we are not debating whether Spring is doable.   I've stated from the beginning that I agree.    It's not as bad as some here think it is.    It's doable,   No question.   We are debating whether Spring is preferable, or desireable.    So, when you write,  that you don't think you have to say more about an issue,  any issue,  I'm sorry,   but NO!     You DO have to say more.  A heckuva lot more.    Because YOU have the burden of proof.    My position is the Industry Standard.   Your's has, by comparison,  a handful of examples.   Some are recent.   That's great.   But I view that as a nod to the position that it's doable.    You view it as a possibility that it might soon become the norm.   I'm happy to wait until that actually happens.   As to your primary argument.....    that all the prep work has been done,  and if you make the changes in winter,  that the GM is not up to speed on what the current scouts and player personnel people have done.    Except there is this......   Your argument that you yourself use to others here who complain that changing in the spring is bad.   To quote you....   it's just one draft.    One free agency period.    And there will soon be another,  and then another....   and another.   One season is nothing in the grand scheme of things.   That is what you wrote (roughly) to posters who think making the GM change in the spring is outright terrible and stupid.    Which I strongly disagree with their positin.   Your argument makes my argument for me.    I want the new GM in the building ASAP.    So he can sooner evaluate his players.    His front office.    His scouts.    The entire program.   Waiting until May or June just delays that.    I want it to begin ASAP.   I'd expect that he can and would be able to make some level of difference in his first free agency and draft.    Plus,  I think you way, way over-dramatize the handicap the new GM has arriving in January.   He's the GM.    He's already got a ton of information in his head,  and in his notebooks, his binders.    He's not in as much of a bind as you like to portray.     So, with your desired scenario, this draft could be used for a system that the new GM doesn't even want to run.    Like Chuck running a 3-4,  when Ballard wants to run a 4-3.    Like Chuck wanted to run a power running game and a deep pattern passing game.    While Ballard favors a zone running game and a get rid of the ball quick, move the chains offense.     In your preferred scenario,  you're the one who is burning the first year the GM has,  not me.     I see little of the benefits and mostly an approach that screams....   "Gee,  I hope this works out."   By the way,  I didn't want this post to end without addressing one of your main points.   Your paragraph that starts with this:   My Point:  There are always good candidates...   same is true for head coaches and coordinators.    I'm sorry,  but I'm going to STRONGLY disagree with that argument.  And I think you'll retract that.    Every so often you'll see an article about how did the class of GM's from a previous year turn out?   Or head coach hires?    I used to tell posters here who hated Pagano that the class of head coaches that included Chuck,  that all of the other coaches got fired before Chuck.    That Chuck was the best of his class.   And that happens with GM's too.   A class gets hired,  and quite often most of them, sometimes all of them don't work out.   I believe my position has far more facts to back that up.    There isn't always a Sean McVey.  There isn't always a Kyle Shannahan.   There isn't always a Josh McDaniels.   There aren't 32 good GM's, or 32 good head coaches,  or 32 good offensive or defensive coordinators.   That's why so many teams struggle for years to get those spots right.   So, no, I absolutely reject the idea that there are always good candidates.    Sorry.   I know you believe what you're writing.   But honestly, this feels like one big thought experiment. Like you're trying to make a case for something you really don't believe,  but you're trying to see if you can make a good argument anyway.   And yet I know that's NOT the case.    That you really, honestly do believe this.    That's what I find so astonishing.    There's lots of opinion,  and not a lot of evidence to back this up.    As I've said from the get-go....   I think this is doable.    I just don't think it's desireable or preferable.  
    • To your last paragraph....   yes,  I agree that if a GM,  any GM, inherits a bad roster,  then no matter how OK his draft picks may be,   they will likely stick on the roster.   But if you're a GM inheriting a poor team,  and you draft players that are only somewhat better than what you originally had,  then the improvement in the team will only be so good.   Again,  from 4 wis,  to perhaps 6-7.    That wouldn't be bad.    That would be reasonable.   But when you suddenly pop to 10 wins,  including 9 of the last 10 in the regular season,  and you win on the road in the playoffs,   then there's got to be something more there than just the GM's new guys.    Those guys have got to be good.    You can't do that well simply because they're better than the previous guys.    They're much better.    Yes, the coaching staff is better and the systems the team is running are better,  but so are the players.    They have to execute.    And we did.   Better than we thought possible.    Certainly better than when we were 1-5 and looked like a candidate for a top-10 or even a top-5 draft pick.    The players are good.   They may not be great yet,  but they're really good and much better than what we had.    The results are all the proof you need.   Again,  thanks for the exchange....  
    • I missed the first couple innings, was keeping track on phone, didn’t realize things got chippy with the benches clearing after the Contreras HR! Seems the Cubs were playing with a little extra edge tonight, I love it!!! 
    • and then NE goes into KC and throws for 350 and Sony runs for 100+ on them. our O, and O game plan just sucked.   i get KC was good, but our O just sucked.
