@Nadine  Don't know if my work pc got an update...still shows IE11 but I can now quote and post like the old days from my pc. So kudos to whomever fixed this. I took a little vacation and came back and now everything is working great! Just wanted to share that with you.

Thanks for the update.  They're currently working on it.  You'll notice we're missing our colts.com header for the tiem being.

 

If you lose ability in IE 11 again, let me know

First of all how do I get to the desktop wallpapers now?  2nd.  Horrible minimal design.  Things that were once at your fingertips and a click away are hidden or impossible to find or you have to drill through multiple menus.  Absolutely awful.  I have an idea.  Let's send all web designers back to school.  Somewhere along the line they forgot how to make a good looking and functional web site.  The new colts.com is not functional, at least it doesn't function very well, actually it is awful at function, and the design is horrible.  1 first page just scrolls and scrolls.  Menus are so poorly designed it is unreal.  Fans menu used have a nice hover drop down and I could get to anything in a heartbeat.  This site is pure garbage.  My 10 year old could have designed a better looking more functional website.  It's horrrid.  I will stop now.

You still managed to make your way in here to complain about it, so apparently that functionality is good to go.

There are not any wall papers right now but there will be.

I'm sorry you are so unhappy with the site but, the scrolling thing is part of making sites work for people using mobile devices.  It's very much like what's happening across the entire web.

Just because it is happening doesn't make it a good design.  It's actually a terrible design for tablets and desktops.

Why in the world would you even launch this?  Beta is not even a good word.  Half the stuff isn''t there or working.   Oh yea.  Just like Microsoft we are the testers.  Unreal.  I am done with the website.  To put a piece of you know what out like this shows total incompetence on the part of the faculty at colts.com.  You should be ashamed.

One last thing.  There's a reason why we have Mobile versions of websites and we have desktop versions and the 2 shall not meet because when they do the desktop people always get the shaft.  And we got the shaft once again at Colts.com.

@HooksalotWhat is not working for you? I know that we have some issues with Internet Explorer.  Is that the browser you are using?

I'm Back!  IDK if it was a rebuild of the forums or what, but i've been gone since the beginning of last season. I've tried to log in multiple times since the offseason began to no avail.  (I log in via FB).  I have had SOO much on my mind, and have missed the comments of all you guys SOO much that I tried 1 last time...and GOT IN!  You just don't know how excited i am of this...lol.

The site locks up with the dreaded spinning wheel whether I am using my Mac or my PC (brand new and well equipped).  I get message "not responding due to long running script" very frustrating as I cant jump from topic to topic without a substantial waiting period if at all sometimes.  Even going from say page one to page five might shut it down.  I assume these are common, or known issues and you are still working out the bugs?

Yes pretty much all the time.  I first thought it was just heavy traffic, but it doesn't matter what time of day really.

My Mac has a little older version of Safari and I always used it before without issue.  If you remember I PM'd you for PW change so I could use my PC as I had forgotten my PW.  I was hoping to solve the problem then.  It is under 6 months old so whatever version of IE that came with it plus updates.  I use it for everything else without any problems.  I don't care for other browsers really especially Chrome, but I suppose I could try it.

I think the problem is with IE.  See if FireFox or Chrome is better for you. 

The older version of Safari is also a problem.  I have the most recent Safari and it works well.

I don't know if it will always be a problem.  I hope not but from what I hear, people having problems are using IE

 

I haven't used IE in a while.  Is it called Edge now?

Newest version of Google Chrome here.......

 

This forum sticks, and freezes multiple times every time I open it.  It worked at first when you changed it to the current format, and now it doesn't. 

 

Extremely frustrating.

I'm so sorry! I just logged into your account with chrome and navigated around.  No freezing.  Maybe the issue is resolved for you now?

I've been talking to IP and it seems we've got some kind of a javascript conflict that requires NFL to create something specific for us. I've asked for NFL to look at it but, am not expecting this issue will be at the top of their priority list.

 

When you run into that slowness issue, try closing the window and reopening.

If that doesn't work, try closing the browser and reopening.

Ok, thanks. 

 

I'll probably just close it out and come back later.

I have had my browser lock up when I tried to change my profile pic and when I click on who reacted to a post.  This has happened on my Mac using Safari version 11.1.2 and on my phone using the latest Samsung browser.  I do not get an error message it is just a spinning thing.

on the forum or on colts.com?

FYI, clicking on 'who reacted to this post' or 'who's following this thread' will pretty reliably lock your browser up. For now, avoid clicking those

Thanks Nadine for confirming this problem. I seriously thought my computer was possessed or something. Good advice. Will this ever be resolved or just accept that this feature will never work smoothly again?

I hope so.  Until then, just avoid those things. Same thing happens when I try to change a profile image

For the mods --- @Nadine --- or anyoe who can help.

 

A new bug has cropped up.     Typically, next to the "quote" tab,  there is also an "edit" tab, so you fix or change what you've typed.     It's important for someone like me who unfortunately makes a lot of typos.

 

But in the last few weeks,  the "edit" function disappears.     It's literally gone.     And then,  from time to time,  it mysteriously reappears.

 

Don't know what to make of it,  but hoping that someone can help with this....

 

I try to go back and fix my mistakes.     The edit tab is one of my best friends!

 

Many thanks for your help with this...

The edit link should be there for 30 minutes after you post. Are you saying that it sometimes is not there in the 30 minutes after you post?

No...   I believe it’s there for roughly 30 minutes....

 

But after that,  it’s gone.

 

So this is deliberate?    It wasn’t that way before.    Can you share why they made the change?    What benefits do we gain by not being able to edit posts after 30 minutes?

 

Thanks.....

I agree I don't like it either. Not sure why the change is made but after 30 minutes you can't edit.

It should always have been limited to 30 minutes.  The reason is, people post, then people reply to the post.  If the original post gets changed, then the conversation can make no sense

 

In addition, sometimes people make baiting posts, which causes people to take the bait.  If they change the original post, then moderators cannot tell what happened.

 

So, the idea is, that there is a window to correct typos.

I am back and I will say this.  The new website has now been up for 3 months.  3 months and this thing is still a steaming pile of dog crap.  How in the world any sane person thinks this is normal business is beyond me.  This is the worst implementation of a website I have ever seen.  I used to come here daily.  You can see I complained 6 weeks ago and still no desktops pics.  No way to maneuver fluidly.  No friendly drop downs for PC users just a mish mash of garbage and links designed to work with a tablet.  It looks like someone who knows absolutely nothing about designing a website designed it and then went crap, a ton of stuff does not work.  Let's just leave this big steaming pile on the internet and hope people don't find out we are as incompetent a development crew as there is.  And trust me when I tell you I should know.  I have only helped launch web based application for 15 years.  Crap like this would never pass muster where I am from, but then again we do not use our clients as beta testers the way the Colts do.  I will come back in 2 more months but I do not expect much.  It is clear no one on the development staff has any clue how to design and implement a website.  The sad part is you had an amazing website that actually functioned.  This one is garbage.  If it is the same pile in 2 moths I will never return to Colts.com.  ESPN, sad as it is, is a far superior website.  I guess I will get my Colts info there.  At least it actually works.

    • Supe it's not an angle whatsoever, it's purely the truth.   I am, of course not talking about you, or what you do on this board in terms of evaluating players. I always enjoy hearing your take on players.   I am obviously talking about the people spewing bile on here after the loss to the Raiders, and every other loss for that matter. And a lot of that includes tripe about Jacoby Brissett that just goes way over the top.   We can disagree on Brissett, it's not really a big deal. And I apologize for quoting you in the other thread and giving you the impression I am including you in this. I'm really not. I quoted you because I would rather debate the topic with someone like yourself than get sucked into a flame war with some troll, which has happened to me a time or two. That's all. Me and you can have a somewhat interesting discussion. I always enjoy it.     
    • Nice thread...    There have been some arguments for a while now about the relative value of pass-coverage vs pass-rush. Teams offensively are turning to faster and faster game plans and this affects the pass-rush a ton. You can practically scheme the pass-rush away if you have good enough QB and receivers that get open quickly. The latest advanced analytics seem to favor positions like CB and WR value-wise over long-held champions like EDGE rushers or OTs. I will also take into account your characterization of the rest of the roster(average players as opposed to straight up trash). At some positions the improvement between pro-bowler and average/JAG is higher than at other positions. Those are just part of the considerations that will inform my choise here:   Offense:   1. QB: not controversial take here - most important position of all... he handles the ball and makes a decision that might affect the game pretty much 100% of the snaps. I want the best passer and decisionmaker to run my offense.    2. WR: yep, give me a beast of an X-receiver. Pass-catchers are incredibly important.   3. LT: Yeah, I know, this goes against some of the things I said above, but time and time again we see what a great LT does to an offensive line. Leremy Tunsil is not even that great and he almost single-handedly turned around the HOU OLine. Same with AC last year - we missed him mightily when he was injured to start the year and then turned the line into a great unit. And again - he's not even at the level we are talking here. He still has not had a pro-bowl or all-pro recognition(maybe he gets one this year, he deserves it). But yeah... give me Bakhtiari, give me Armstead, give me Tyron Smith level player... I think this raises the level of the whole O-Line, especially if it's filled with average players at the other positions(rather than horrible ones)   ------------------------------------ Those will be my selections offensively. I think a QB masks a lot of deficiencies and I think he elevates average players and squeezes everything out of most of them. Just look at what Luck used to do with players like Jack Doyle, Donte Moncrief, Eric Ebron, Inman, Coby Fleener, Dwayne Allen...    Defense:   4. CB: yep, I want a shut down corner. Like I said earlier, newest research shows pass-coverage and especially on the boundary is paramount. and it affects pass-rush more than pass-rush affects CB play.    5. CB: yep, give me one more... I'm shutting down both sides of the field and hoping this gives additional time to my pass-rush to get there. They will play on island and I will scheme out everything else(i.e. slot receivers and TEs)... if I have to I will double away from them.    6. WILL: I want a sideline to sideline monster to clean up the run game and take on crossing routes in the short-intermediate middle in coverage.     7. EDGE: I still want a player capable of beating his man one-on-one on the line and creating pressure/affecting the pass when my pro-bowl CBs lock down their match ups.    So what do you think? Does it make sense?
