FoxSportsNext - New home for Scout.Com

FoxSportsNext - New home for Scout.Com 


Hey Everyone..

Just wanted to let you know that, in case you've noticed things getting a little wonky here, that Scout.Com has been rebranded as FoxSportsNext, and all of the forums are being moved over there now. It's still a work in progress, and I don't have a ton of information around when it will be complete or how it will affect things long term, but it's definitely happening.

The new forums (if you haven't been forced there already) are located here:

http://community1.foxsportsnext.com/t5/49ers-Hardc ore/bd-p/1922

I don't know if all the other forums (draft, etc.) will be migrated as well.

The site, currently, is very slow. In the meantime, if you can still log in here, great.

I'll try to get more info around this as soon as I can. I'll try to check with Craig if he has info, but it looks like he's not really connected with the forums much anymore (he's still writing a lot of content, however, for the 'Digest').

Put any questions you have in here, and I'll try to forward them along to anyone I can contact.

Thanks,

Pudding

Wow, not a fan of the new board, hope it's greatly improved soon.

On a side note, I have a SF 49ers credit card from mynflcard.com They called me two days ago and offered me four free tickets to this weekends game against the Bills. Needless to say, I'll be there with the fam. I was shocked, but they asked me to tell people about it, and I am! After winning a Kimber .45 at an NRA raffle a couple years ago, and now free game tickets...this is probably the luckiest I've ever been. Huh, maybe Karma does come back around!

Agreed, I tried testing out the new site and it was a disaster. Pages wouldn't load, I just got the spinning beach ball. After finally loading I discovered its a poor layout IMO. Maybe its just because I'm not used to the new design but I don't see how its considered an improvement.  IMO this site should remain up until the other one gets all the kinks ironed out. Seems like the off-season would be a better time to transition to a new board... 

NN7- that is a SUH-WEET handgun, I would love to get my hands on one of those. Also free tickets to the game, doesn't get much better than that! I need to make it to some more games before I get priced out at the new stadiumtongue

It came with NRA branded laser grips from Crimson Trace. It handles like a dream, and I only spent $100 on tickets. lol, I had completely forgotten about the raffle until I got a call while grocery shopping...that was a good day!

So far the other site sucks the big noodle!

I hope they can fix it or I'll have to find another message board.

Click "reply" and it takes you college.

Go back and click reply again and is says "database not available"!

I agree, thus far, I've gotten more database error pages than pages pages.  The new site really sucks, did Fox buy scout to bury the message boards?  Cause it sure seems like it.

I believe FOX bought Scout some years ago. They're just rebranding it now (FOX Sports NEXT) and rolling out new software. That's my understanding, anyway.

That said, I also quite dislike the new site, both from a useability standpoint and the functionality seems quite poor at the moment, extremely buggy and slow.

Also they categorize users in college terms. Sophmore, freshman, prospect etc. This isn't a college board!

Does anyone know how long the old board will remain up?

Yeah, that new board is horrific.  Apparently the designers just completed their fifth grade computer class project.  WTF!  Great way to ruin a perfectly good site.
