    This is minor , but I find myself forgetting what day the articles like Research , Speculator , etc. , are posted. That should be something I immediately remember after all this time , but maybe others would appreciate seeing the days put back on the link to the articles.

    Yes, I liked having the days of the week in the menu of those articles too. Not only are the days gone, but the order is scrambled now (alphabetical instead of chronological).

    I guess that does answer my question, but now that I look at the menu on the left of each BBHQ page, the research topics aren't in alphabetical order or chronological order: they're just scrambled. Why not list them in chronological order instead of making users go to the command center page (which is a clean lay-out but nothing more than the same menu)?

    Click Salary Cap on the main menu and it goes to Feb. 18 article.

    Click Salary Cap from the Command Center and it goes to Feb. 23 Wild Card article.

    Click Wild Card from the Command Center and it goes to Feb. 18 Salary Cap article.

    I cannot get to the Feb. 25 Salary Cap article.

    Maybe this only happens for me now... but the lefthand tool bar on the left hand side is great, except that the days of the week (Mon-Fri & Weekends) and the text for American League and National League are bigger than everything else.

    What this does on my browser (IE) is to push that text out of the frame to the right a bit....this then pushes all the content in the "main window" down a full page. So I log in...the first page is the left hand toolbar...then I scroll down a full page (past the poll) and then see the main page content.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Default Scarcity Option

    this is more of a question than a problem.....is there an estimate on when the scarcity option for the custom draft guide might be ready?

    I've been waiting for this for a long time so I'm super anxious.

    new site looks great. New custom draft guide is also much improved.

    The Command Center links are definitely reversed. But I believe the reason you can't get to the 2/25 article is that the 2/25 article was actually the first post of the Challenge Indicators data, which appeared in the 'Library' section... and since the archives are offline, I think that got taken down.

    I agree with Michael. I don't mean to nit pick , but it seems that if the posting days are listed for every article in the left hand navigation column you wouldn't need to click on the extra page of the command center. As I said in my earlier post this is minor. My observations in no way reflect a dissapointment with HQ.

    As one who uses both Safari for Mac OS X and Windoze XP, the Mac version is different -- it strangely muted somehow.

    Not sure why...

    Thanks for the return of the Command Center!
    I echo those that still find the days of the week for new articles (Bullpen, Rotisserie, etc) on the Main Menu down the left as a very useful time-saver (and avoids the fear of missing something). It's because the content is so valuable and timeliness is so important, that we don't want to miss a thing! I appreciate the efforts of all the staff involved in the redesign. Don't mind a little "dust" as the progress is made!

    This is the viewing issue I mentioned earlier..... See how the Daily Updates text is too big and pushes it's way into the center "panel"? Then Text that's usually in the middle then starts way at the bottom of the page....Looks this way both at work and at home...

    Any thoughts?

    That's very odd. I can't replicate that view at all. Some questions that come to mind:
    • What operating system are you using?
    • Is that a special version of IE? I noticed the "provided by" in the title bar.
    • What resolution are you using for your monitor?

    Hi Tom,

    The odd thing is that I get the same results at work and at home. (The pic is here at work)

    At work, I'm using IE 5.5 and Windows 2000, resolution is 1024x768.

    Home is IE (unsure on version), Windows XP Home, same res I believe.

    I'm baffled. :-(

    Are you using IE 5.5 in both places? That's a pretty old release. I think I saw something somewhere about a bug in 5.5 that enlarges text size under certain circumstances.

    Given all of the Microsoft security patches, you should probably be running the latest release anyway.

    Hmm...the work one I don't have control over...but I can check the home version. At home I'm able to do the downloads, so it would surprise me if I didn't have the latest version.

    Tom you're a genius. I had my system admin at work install an update to IE 6.0. It looks wonderful. Now I'll upgrade at home too. I had a motherboard die just around the bbhq format changed...so I must have an older version now.

    I don't know if this is a new problem, but I've recently noticed that when there is a poll as part of a thread, frequently it doesn't match the text/title or vice versa. Check out this thread for example

    helloneumn - this might have been related to our forums migration 3-4 months ago in which a number of posts were confused and mixed up due to a database issue.

    I see that the days of the week [ reminds me of the SCTV soap ] are restored for those who like them , and of course the command center is there for those who prefer that. You gotta love this site!

    I missed this the other day , but welcome RedRyder and cool avatar , BTW.

    Default page view problem

    Don't know if this is just my pc, but the "More RotoWire.com news..." in the RotoWire page link looks weird (see attachment). I'm using Win 2000 and IE 6.
