Can we PLEASE ban rdurr from posting in this thread proactively?
I'm confused by 3B. So any users, whether they're paying members or not, would be able to read premium news? What sense does that make?
It seems like these guys just don't get it
what does this mean?
some nice features. that assistant ranking idea is so money. that should be fun.
I read that as any premium user can read any contributor content, but only have complete access to their main site (can read all premium content)
did I miss the part about Tags in there?
This sounds like the standard model where VIPs can read all articles and national content, but no premium posts outside of their home board?
National Signing Day.
Coming next: 247's rating of stadium food at every school, broken down by index score.
After that, we may get around to improving the message boards.
3A would be awesome
The one problem regarding 3A/3B I could think of is if being able to read all the posts means you could also post on it. Don't feel like dealing with trolls from other boards in premium when there's a recruiting battle with them.
This one would suck.
#1. Users must be members of a "home site" to post on a message board. This is the way it is setup now for most sites in the network. (for example, only a Ohio State fan could post on the Ohio State site – Bucknuts).
I like to see fans from other teams posting here. I liked reading the threads from other big 10 schools when we announced we were joining.
I'm a big fan of 3B. As much as I want to read what some asshat UK fans are saying on premium, I don't want the whole world reading my VIP posts.
If you allow VIP members are one site to go read all VIP boards freely, that info will not stay private very long. Nothing to stop me from going to the NC State board, reading something for their fans that is damning if public and posting it all over the web anonymously. Yes you can do this now, but their is the obstacle of signing up etc.
For example Jeff posts that he has spoken to x recruit and he wants to keep it quiet but he is ours. If someone wants that info badly enough at least make them pay for it.
Also the thought of a board rewrite is kind of scary as it finally kind of works now.
