I have to say guys, the recruit search mechanism on this site really sucks. Almost without fail, when I'm trying to search for players and narrow it down by various characteristics, I go to the Rivals site instead of 247. This is a function that 247 REALLY needs to invest in to upgrade. Rivals' version was always better than Scouts, but IMHO, the Scout version is better than 247's as well.
I like the format and functionality of 247's message boards much more than Rivals', but when it comes to the recruiting search function, 247 is way behind.
That is something they will address so it will get taken care of. Thanks for bringing that up, though, because we want to hear what you guys don't like just as much as what you do. That helps us to make sure we are meeting your needs on a local and national stage.
Sonny, fwiw, my screen is still very slow in filling up.. stays blank.......the ads appear right away. running safari. thx
Same here, the speed of the servers is....well.....very slow.
One more item for thought...is there are way that the origination date of a thread could be shown..this way you know if it's an old thread that popped back up or a new one. Some sites have this right under the topic of the thread.

My only complaint is the how we post our messages. There just isn't enough features. Tigerdroppings has the best template. I also like the emoticons there better. There is a large selection of emoticons here but most of them are useless.

Shoot me a PM and let's get this worked out, if we can.

Love the LSU 247 site but my only gripe is why is it when you post a story, it only brings me to another page that has a link to click to see the whole story. Is the reason for this for your website's how many clicks per page ranking and advertising.
That is only on tidbits, which we want to keep just for the LSU members.
For instance, the articles syndicate throughout the network, so everyone reads them regardless of which site they pay for.
But when you click the article and then there is another link that takes you to the Geaux247 board, it's because it is content that only LSU subscribers are allowed to read.
ok tanks for clearing up.
We currently don't have that option but message boards will be one of our main focuses for our Engineering Dept. going forward all the way around. I will be sure and pass these suggestions along.
When we finish our upgrade on the message boards you will have many more options and bells and whistles. That is a main focus going forward.
If the result is that the message boards take longer to load up and refresh, that will not be a good trade off. The site already loads up a little more slowly than competitors'.
That is something that is also being addressed so it will not have a bearing on speed.
I have to agree, the Rivals advanced search function is comparatively awesome.
Since there isn't a original post date tag, can you put:
11/15 AM Recruiting Tidbits
11/15 PM Recruiting Tidbits
Will help to notice if it's an old thread or not
We will start doing that on our Tidbit threads and great suggestion.
