  • Holy crap, I thought the forums were dead for good.

    Josh Norris, of Rotoworld fame, is currently tweeting out what the St. Louis draft room was like in 2011. It's a fascinating read, especially how much the Rams liked a lot of players who turned out to be "just a guy" in the NFL. Quote, "one scout comped Kendall Hunter to Barry Sanders."

      No worries, as long as the forums run better. My question is, will the site crash at some point during the draft this year?
      Did it crash last year?

      It might. I mean the peak traffic is crazy. I think having the forum on a separate server may help a bit on that front. Both applications running on the same server probably wasn't a good idea.

        I think the forums crashing during the draft has ascended to yearly tradition status.

          Yeah. The sun sets, the grass is green, and the WF forums crash during the draft. Of course, if it's on a separate server that may help. And that the forum isn't as active as it used to be.

                The good news is we have retired from the self-hosting these forums and are now on VBulletiin's cloud. Which means this forum should run as well as any VBulletin application can. And it should be a lot more stable as it isn't attached to the main site anymore..which we occasionally have to move from time to time.

                In other words we should be set for awhiles.
                Can you tell walt to promote the forum more on the main page to increase memebership? Or do the comment sections bring in more $$$

                  I'll mention it

                  Not sure about which generates more $$$...maybe he knows but they are both worth having...the comment boards are a chance to respond in line to his analysis. While this community is its own thing.

                      I honestly don't know if I would have found this forum if someone hadn't told me about it on another forum lol.

                      Like, I read the main site's articles pretty reliably for a year or so, but never knew of the forums until Token told me about CMD.

                        same.

                          That's what I thought, but apparently he went and became a specialist in the military instead.

                              I'd have taken him off my board completely. Doesn't mean the Bengals won't still take him.

                                Failed a drug test, medical issues, kicked out of the combine for a fight with staffers. I'd be shocked if he goes earlier than the mid 20's. That's way too many red flags.
