As well any teams that don't have links on their main team website to a fan forum, should seriously consider getting one. It brings a lot of traffic to your site and your fans are missing out on networking with each other. If I have to do a Google search to find a fan forum for a specific team, you are losing many potential daily hits to your site. Probably hundreds and even into the thousands by the look at the numbers on some of these forums. How many fans bypass the team main sites and just go to the Fan Forum URL's? I am sure thousands.
Yes Toronto, I am talking about you. You don't even have a link to your online shop - last time I looked. And if you don't want to support PNP, there are some great things happening at Argofans.com.
I personally think links to CFL gear shops and fan forums should be mandatory on every team site. We need fans showing their colors - clothing and via the written word. Even if fans are ranting about how bad their team is, at least they are talking about the team and probably going to games or at least watching them on TV or listening to them on the radio.
Ya - we are getting rid of the postnuke sites, actually getting really close to launching the new forums. Unfortunately due to some technical hurdles (converting from PN to strict phpBB while maintaining all User data, getting new servers in place, etc.), this process has taken significantly longer than we expected.
All I can ask for is a bit of patience - you'll likely see an announcement in the next few days with regards to the forums, so keep an eye out.
Other forums automatically return you to the previous screen, or at least have a link in the same window you log into that tells you where to go. This way you have to look down the link list on the left to get back in, and then you have to find the thread you wanted to reply to.
There was another glitch that was just recently fixed, where every time you logged in, it went back to the new site so you had to go back through forums, etc.
Like I said, I had brought these issues up to a moderator who said they would pass the info along, but I still seen these issues after a few weeks so I thought I would send these questions out there.
