  1. Thank you, a few things first, need to nail down whether the software even allows such a plan, also determining exactly what the cost would be.
  2. Thank you. I'm sending this to the ad company now
  3. Kinda defeats the purpose from my point of view
  4. Would some members consider paying an annual fee in exchange for an ad-free experience? Like the option you'd see on an app or something
  5. You should definitely not be seeing the Amazon spinning ad; this was not an advertisement that we put on the site, nor should you ever see any popup ads or redirects. Our old ad network was constantly getting hijacked (as you saw with those popups, etc.) so we bailed on them and signed up with these new guys. If you keep seeing these, screencap it and remember where you were on the site when it happened, then post it to here. The new ad network does add the floating ad on the bottom of the screen.
  6. Major League Baseball told me the National League would be wearing the white uniforms this year
  7. That's because the Knights didn't actually stop the Golden Knights from using the name, but it was an excuse the team went with anyways; they always wanted a two word nickname, "Black Knights" was the preferred choice.
  8. That dream seemed to die when Paul Beeston retired; an entirely new front office now, Mark Shapiro mentioned it wasn't as much of a priority to him.
  9. To those expressing frustration, I get it, from your perspective it seems like I'm intentionally ignoring or being rude. Of course it's not at all like that; I'm simply just buried under all this stuff... keep in mind that I'm just one person, I can get a few hundred messages a day (in between being a stay-at-home father of two young kids) from both readers and the actual teams/leagues themselves about updating or correcting the logos site, about making sure we cover a particular news item, and usually there's someone upset they were banned or suspended from these forums. If it's a slow news day I can get to maybe 10% of these each day? Things will get missed, often... I'm sorry that happens, I want to cover everything, I want to be as accurate and up-to-date as possible. Reality says otherwise and the reality is most days I'm exhausted by the end. I can only do so much, I can't afford to hire anyone. So if you're wondering, the best chance to get my attention these days is through a Twitter DM (@sportslogosnet); I tend to check that and interact there more often than anywhere else, if I'm terribly busy I will usually just focus on what interests me the most first - baseball, hockey will get priority because I personally enjoy baseball and hockey; if it's a slow day and I'm looking for stuff to do then I'll start looking for corrections of other things in my DMs. It could take days, weeks, months... I've had many try for years. I'm not happy that it happens like that, it makes me look bad, but I'm not sure what else to do.
  10. The NCAA had rules to allow their logos on our site; we had to follow them.
  11. I don't recall anyone ever asking for anything after a donation; there was one instance of a user making a large donation shortly after their account was banned but it didn't reverse the decision. Any perceived favouritism that may have occurred after a donation would have been completely unintentional/subconscious... but I'm sure it happened. That time feels like a hundred years ago now. I do agree with you though, I'd hate for that perception to return. Donations would be great, I'm not going to lie, but I don't think we're quite at the point (yet... could be within a year or so) where it's necessary to keep things up and running.
  12. The images alone were using up so much space it was costing me personally an extra $2,500 every year just to keep that feature. I had to kill it.
  13. It's in the breadcrumbs now up near the top, it's got a little picture of a house next to it.
