Welcome to the new Grizzlies Fan Boards. (The conversion took us about twice as long as we'd hoped, but we're up and everything's looking good.)

Signing in:
All member accounts should have transfered over with all info except passwords.
So click on "Log In" above, and then "I've forgotten my password! Click Here!" in the yellow area.
You will receive an email with further instructions...
** When entering the letters you see in the security code image, use capital letters**
A second quick email sent to you will include your new password. Use that to log in.

Now, you probably don't want to use that password again. Once you're in, click on "Controls" above to get to your Control Panel (with lots of new stuff). At the bottom of the left column, find "Change Password" to set it to something you'll remember.


What's new:
The big new thing is your profile page. Once you're logged in, click on "My Profile" above to see it.

You can add other fans as friends, rate other members, upload a personal photo, and a few other things.

To see other fans' profiles, click on "Members" at the top (under the search box) to search for other fans and to see a full list of members.


Technical info:
We've moved from a "hosted" forum at Eve/Groupe to our own self-hosted IP.board (Invision Power). It was time the boards grew up and offered more standard community features (profile pages) and a better and easier-to-use interface overall. Also, the url is much easier to remember: boards.grizzliesonline.com


More:
There will be a few more features added during this offseason. We'll post updates when there's new stuff to mention.

So enjoy, and reply to this post if you have any questions or find any problems.

Why is there no button to delete posts? There's edit, quote, and reply but no delete. I don't like that.

I had to make two password requests. It worked on the second one. Something seems to be messed up.

The board looks good visually, but the useability kinda sucks.

Can you be specific about those? It would help me out a lot.

There were about 10 minutes of lost comments when we started the transfer at about 10:10am. Could that be it?

Besides the "Delete Posts" button, what else sucks about the usability?

You can check this one

The first post should be mine but they are of order, check the date of posting. I hope it makes sense.

sure...

example 1

go to the Rockets game thread.....

the posts look out of order...

example 2

goto the "great article" thread...

the posts are out of order, some of my posts giving the OP a hard time are deleted (probably for the better...hehehe)....the quoted text isn't there.....etc....

I see. And Francesc's too. Not good. I probably won't be able to do anything until I get to work tomorrow, but I'll try a couple of things.

Yeah, looks like you are aware of the problem, but if you needed the point belabored, lol, there's also the Arthur thread. Anyway, I like the visual appearance better. I'm sure once the kinks are worked out it will be a better experience for us all...
