Have you been having trouble with this site today? This morning was unbelievable -- I couldn't post anything to save my life, comments OR new threads. I'm not getting any reply from blogger about the situation, but I wonder if it's because we've had a sixfold increase in our traffic. It really seems as though our capacity here is limited.
There are also limitations with the 'blog' format. For instance, good threads get buried, because there is no automatic change in priority when a new comment is added. I've added it to the 'wish list' at blogspot, but it has been ignored. There are actually a lot of issues with navigation when we try to use a blog in this manner.
Anyway, I'm strongly considering moving to a message board format. Not like the archaic PI or Times forums, but one of the more modern ones. There are several services I'm looking into. But before I go any further, I really wanted your input. After all it's really the collective that make the site what it is. If I set up something that's not really desirable to the most of us, it's really for naught.
So what do you think? Has this site been working for you? Should we stick with the now? Can you think of a better name than 12 Seahawks Street?
One thing I'm considering, too, is making a site with three different subsites: Seahawks, Mariners, and Sonics. We'd have to recruit Moderators for the other two, but it might get nice cross-support.
Let me know, guys. You have an important voice on this one.
