Re: AHS Turns One!

While I've only been on here for a few months, those few months have been great. I love the passion and love for sports and design that everyone has, as well as the overall respect and kindness everyone here shows.

I think the best part is the community itself and the ways we can connect. The Atl Sports Universe has been fantastic as well as my own attempts with the NAAF (having people add prospects and vote for awards). I'm game for more interactions, and even collaborations, for sure.

I also love the like button and especially the quote notifications ideas a lot.

And one last shoutout to the mods, for keeping everything running smoothly and helping whenever and wherever they can. Keep it up and Thank you!

I took a little break from this site, but since I opened up the old files on my fictional league, I knew I couldn’t league this community forever. Everyone here, from the creators to the commenters is extremely supportive of one another and it’s really nice to see people’s best skills shine. Where they might have gotten ripped on CCSLC for their designs, story is a lot more appreciated here than it ever was on SFF, outside of the American Family Association ;) [just f’in w you veras] and PHL. People also seem to be a lot more willing to accept criticism and evaluate their uniform/logos on an objective level, which has allowed for better progression of design skill and proficiency. It really feels like there’s a close-knit group here, and it’s nice to experience that online outside of just CCSLC, but there it seems more clique-y. People comment on all of the threads and I like that.

I like the closeness of this community, but I’m wondering if there’s some way to contact the CCSLC mods and talk about possible advertising on their boards? I don’t mean spam them or the boards or anything, but I’m sure that plenty of people over there who have interest, or possibly lurkers who want to find a community like this, haven’t clicked on DrPepper’s sig. maybe we could talk to them about putting a something into the rules & guidelines section, or pinning a post in concepts talking about where to go for content like this.

^^ I know all of that is probably insane and would imply too close a connection for Chris or the mods to be comfortable with, but it’s just a thought.

Also I’m a broke boy, but I’d love to contribute if I ever get some spare change.

I like this. Both the idea and the post itself. This is way funnier to me than it probably should be. I'm changing my sig quote to "I like this."

I like this, too. I would also like it if it were easier to quote more than one post at a time. It would also be cool to not have to prove my humanity every time I try to post, though maybe instead of being slightly annoyed by it, I should be grateful for the frequent confirmation that I haven't been replaced by a synth.

​I like this, except for the part where my name is in such close proximity to the bad AFA, lol.

EDIT: I meant to say this before, but I would be interested in contributing to board upgrades, provided my financial situation stays as bizarrely stable as it has been recently.

I used to have the Captcha when I posted, but it doesn't show up for me anymore. Maybe you just have to reach a certain number of posts before it knows you're a human?

I'd like if our like button said "I like this". Veras, I'll have to join you in changing my sig to that.

Re: AHS Turns One!

When I first started, it sometimes made me do it twice and the first time it said that I would only have to go through the process until I had a certain number of posts (I think it was 10?). I now have more than 10, and it no longer doubles up or tells me that it will eventually stop, but it still happens maybe once every 3 or 4 times I try to post. Maybe it has something to do with the number of images that I upload or how quickly I post after hitting the post reply button?

Not sure. Hopefully it'll stop soon.

Re: AHS Turns One!

I've had the Captcha come up several times, but I'm fairly certain that only happens when I post pictures.

Edit: NVM, It made me do it this time as well ironically.

Re: AHS Turns One!

And I access from my work computer, home computer and occasionally my mobile devices (which I hate, the site just isn't a good mobile experience), and never get a Captcha.

EDIT: I'll join the "I like this" signature group

Re: AHS Turns One!

Thanks everyone for weighing in, it's great to hear your thoughts and ideas. Please keep them coming! I'll be replying to each one of you as I can.

Well then. A year already, huh? I'm proud to be here for it.

As to suggestions, being able to post images directly to the site would be helpful, and maybe optional themes for the appearance of the boards. Otherwise, I love our little acre of the internet. As long as this place doesn't become like the CCSLF boards, we're golden, my friends!

Glad you're here too! Image hosting can get very expensive so even if we did upgrade to our own host I'm not sure how much image hosting we could manage. It's definitely something I'm looking into though.

Wow a whole year! Congrats everybody on a year full of greatness and here's to more!

Let me just say, when these boards started a year ago, I never thought they would be this successful. The moderating team and all the contributing members deserve a ton of praise for helping to build a community and for leading these boards to thrive. 

I think a unique domain could help as it could bring in even more traffic. I can't make any financial promises, but if you did a fundraiser, I would love to contribute if I can. 

But cheers to everyone and to the future of these boards!

Thanks! We're appreciative of everyone who helped this thing off the ground in the beginning, which you were part of, so thank you.

Super glad to have been a part of this community since basically day one, even if I didn't start posting regularly until several months later. I think the general consensus is the desire for a like button, but to my understanding that would cost money to upgrade the board. I'd be willing to make a financial contribution, but I'd also like to know what other options are possible.

I'd like to thank everyone that's commented on both my NAAB and Robin Island threads as well as every creator who's been working hard to create something unique for everyone. The AltHL and AltFL have been fun (if a little stressful, and I apologize for that) so far and I'm excited to both get to the fantasy part as well as the creation of new leagues in the future.

Here's to many years to come!

Glad to have you aboard. I've been enjoying your projects and the evolution of your style and presentation. Who knew Charlotte, North Carolina would be the primary cause of trouble around here? Haha, jk. (I actually grew up just northwest of Charlotte, btw. About 30 mins north of Statesville) I was also really stoked to help you in your cartography journey and can't wait to see that develop further.

After further research I'll be presenting our options as far as cost versus features and such.

Haha jokes aside, the alt community is a good one! Have made more friends here in the past year than I had in my previous 7 years with any other design community (I mean I’ve only ever been part of one other community.... not to name names but I think my username gives away the other one I’m part of).  These boards have made me much more comfortable presenting what I have to offer, and it has dramatically accelerated my skills in the process. I’m not even talking about what I have out there atm, I have so much to share that I have just waiting in my TYHDA folder right now.

Special thanks to the guy who shot out the original post, Steelman, he deserves a lot of praise for turning design from a “here’s what I have judge it” experience to a collaborative and personal experience that has helped me build relationships with like minded people. His fictional world has inspired so much creativity, and even though I am not as active on that THL thread, believe me when I say Torland is about as real and important to me as the actual NHL.... until the Sharks start doing something again. So that means you have my full attention for at least 5 more years Steelman haha!

Also congrats to Section30 taking on responsibility, you have really shaped this community and it’s only right you look over it. I know I might be the harshest on your work, but I truly believe it is all unbelievable and can never wait to see what you have next.

Lastly, yes. I’d cut my weekly beer money to contribute to this site financially.

​Haha, thanks man! Hopefully the Sharks continue to suck then. I've really enjoyed our collaborations and you've definitely helped push me as a designer as well. Y'all, Scratch's design skills have literally blown up over the past few months. He's got some unreleased stuff that I'm truly amazed by. It's a testament to community, collaboration, critique and being willing to work on your skills. Glad to have you here man!

So glad to have been a part of this from the get go!  We now have over 160 members with over 40 sports histories having been made.  So yeah in one short year, we really have come a long way!  Can't wait to see where this board goes from here!

Mr. Sticks! Your support of this board and all of the creators here has been exemplary. I really appreciate all of your detailed feedback and positivity. It really means a lot to me personally, as well I'm sure others on this site. We're really glad you're part of this community!

It's been fun to see universes pop up, now if I only could focus in on some projects. But I'll join the crowd and say
