Please note, we are still developing community guidelines.  We want this to be a community where everyone can have fun, however we also want it to be one everyone is comfortable visiting.  In general, lets not have exposed lady (or man) bits, people in their underwear, or overly sexualized imagery.  However, if you do post something deemed inappropriate, rather than delete it we will openly and politely discuss it with you so that the community can learn from it (unless its genuinely offensive).  When in doubt, ask Kwon Yuri.

Also, be warned, if you do not select your own avatar, one may be chosen for you.  

User Tips

First rule of AG, the right arrow key is your “next unread comment” button.  Second rule of AG, sort by “newest” at the top right of the comment section.  All other rules will be update by Sporting.  He’s smarter than me.

Posting images: Copy the url address from a hosted image/gif and simply paste it into the comment text box.  Its that easy.

Site Suggestions

Rather than forcing me to continue to find new and creative ways to say “the wizards working on it” please use the comment section of this article to post suggestions…that have not already been suggested. 

We are working on adding a “greened” feature for up’d (the new rec’d) comments as well as better options to see who was being replied to.  Also in works is a profile page that lets you see your comment history.  Another issue I’ve noted is have the cursor just to the text box when you click reply, and yes we’re aware the “unread comments” feature behaves like a pre-teen at times.  These are all longer fixes but things we’re aware of.  Please add your ideas below.

Is there a way to track your comments? I make comments but don’t know how to go back and read replies unless I do it manually which is a bit of a crapshoot

Is there a bug with green comments? I think only comments that are loaded on the initial page load show up as green. so if you scroll down to load more “old” comments, they don’t show as green even if they have enough up votes.

`Tony, we gotta have a thread to talk @ game plan, matchups. Everyone can put their plan and theory forward. We can be like DCs and OCs, can discuss Xs and Os. We can even have honorary AG OC and AG DC. Pls?

Minor suggestions/questions here:

When clicking reply for a comment, the tab stop order goes to the b, i, link, etc… buttuns.first. Could the first tab stop be change to the comment box itself? Or better yet, just move the cursor’s focus right to the comment box with the onMouseClick event.

Couple of nice features from the site that shall not be named. User’s comment history and using nested comment link that takes to you the parent comment were really handy. Don’t know if those exist on AG or if it’s in the works or even possible with this with the WordPress framework.

after a LOT of issues i’ve finally gotten to a point where i can read the comments MOST of the time. However i’ve only gotten the right arrow (to see next comment) to work once or twice…i’ve clicked all over the comments trying to get the right arrow key to work…what do i need to do??

BleedingRedAndGold

Right arrow doesn’t do me much good, either. The Z key, however, advances me to the next unread comment just fine.

that works, thanks! i use that over at AP but never tried it here since the ‘first rule of AG’ above is right arrow…

I sent a file to the gmail acct and to the facebook messenger for greened comments. Could you forward it to the wizard or who ever does the site programming for testing?

The white space on the right on mobile is really annoying. I constantly end up like this when scrolling. I’m not the only one, am I?

Should be resolved now. Something funky was going on with the default footer menu.

KC Dude (A.K.A Zif)

Did the posting to an old thread glitch get fixed? Apparently it did.

Patomic Fist

Not a glitch. The default age to keep comments open was 30 days. I changed it to 90.

Back in the Arrowfish days, fanshots were a big deal. Drove a lot of interest on that site. Could say it’s a cornerstone of the whole community-driven philosophy. Tom Sawyer whitewashing the fence, kinda thing.

How about a sticky-post for people to drop random interesting news and tweets and such? Maybe, The No Huddle, or Hat Tips, or something. It would give people an easy place to check real quick at lunchtime or whenever. Replace it whenever it gets full.

Thanks for the new website! Go Chiefs and let’s race to Superbowl!

Not trying to be critical, everything has been great so far. But, leaving the abusive and homophobic comments in the 4th qtr thread from last night is a bad look. It makes us all look bad in the perspective of we all bitched about AP leaving sexist and racist comments up for over 10 days, but we’re leaving obvious and blatant homophobic comments in our comment threads untouched. Could set a bad precedent going forward.

Thanks Tony and gang. Great work so far.

To recap:

  • Feature that lets us see if someone commented on our posts and will take us directly to the comment.
  • Feature that “greens” (or whatever alternative color) a comment after so many upvotes.
  • Feature that lets you see who a commenter is responding to.
  • When you login it carries you directly to home page and not the WP dashboard thing.

These are your objectives should you choose to accept this mission.

I wish there were an option for vision-impaired. I think just narrowing the columns a tad would be all I’d need, so I can enlarge the presentation without the text going off either edge of the page. It’s very tiring (and thus I won’t do it) to read your articles, although I make an effort on the pure football content articles. I like the spirit of the new site, but that’s not enough to bring me in, much, until it gets easier to read the articles.

Best KC season in decades, and I’m getting weaned off the blogosphere by forces beyond my control.

I have been trying to find out why on mobile or enlarging the text on desktops causes the page to go outside the width of the screen. Something is going past 100% width and I can’t find out what it is.

*Note: I am not the designer, I am just a fellow website designer trying to assist.

I used to work with a framework called Bootstrap to dynamically resize and rearrange content based on how large the viewing device was. Kind of a pain in the ass tbh but it works well

I think it would be nice if we had the option to turn on the “Notify of new replies to this comment” button by default

After a couple weeks of using the site and getting used to the functions, I suggest the following:
1. Adjust the indentations of subsequent comments to responses within a thread. Currently, everything is indented the same so it’s impossible to determine what is in response to what…at least for mobile.
2. Add a ‘next unread’ button for us mobile users. We don’t have a Z.
3. Add responses to your comments within the comments tab of the window that pops up when you click on your username.
4. Keep up the good work!

3. Add responses to your comments within the comments tab of the window that pops up when you click on your username.

This is the only thing I can think of that I miss from AP. Right now, I’ve been doing a search for my username in threads I’ve posted to just to see if anyone made a comment I should respond to. Hard to have a conversation if you don’t know it’s happening.
I’d only add that clicking on the comment would link you directly to that comment.
Otherwise, this place is rocking like Arrowhead tomorrow!

Someone help me out if I’m missing the obvious, but I’d like a way to jump from the bottom of the comments back to the AHG main page. Like a logo at the bottom of each page that links to the homepage. Currently it’s a two step process – click the up arrow at bottom right to go back to top of current page, then click home page.

Again – I might be missing something so help me out if I am. Thanks
