2019 Threads

footerlogo.png

Moving on to making next seasons staple threads after the Grand Final.

The locked recruitment thread that was meant to only have the good stuff in it didn't work at all. It was difficult to move posts that had 20 replies to it already and meant more work for mods. We are looking at going back to the old system of having an open one for news and rumours while keeping one that people can bounce ideas off, shoot the breeze or discuss recruitment strategy without fear of moderation. The way it was set up this season there was no general discussion thread that catered to slightly off topic but still relevant posts.

So for 2019 we are looking at doing:

Warriors Recruitment NEWS and Rumour Mill - 2019

This is your standard news, leaks and rumour thread for official releases, media stories or good oil and ensuing discussion relevant to those posts. As usual this thread will be heavily moderated but 99% of OT posts will be moved to the one below.

2019 Warriors Recruitment DISCUSSION

Anything else to do with recruitment like strategy from Brian Smith and Peter O'Sullivan, thoughts on how it can be improved, where the club should be looking, thoughts on the current make up of the team etc. Anything that isn't official but still relevant to Warriors recruitment.

Also thinking of doing away with the Who Should The Warriors Sign For 2018/2019? thread with all those type posts simply going in the above thread. Just a thought on how to cut down overlapping threads and streamlining them to make it easier for everyone. In saying all that if you guys want it to remain that's all good too.


Let us know your thoughts on this and any improvements you feel would help. None of the above is written in stone. Just an idea. We can add threads or remove them as you guys want them.

All other standard threads like preseason, injury, roster etc will still be there and will be rolled out after the Grand Final as well.

Any other ideas for next season feel free to post up or message an admin.

There will be some improvements to the site/server soon which tajhay tajhay will elaborate on down the line.

Cheers...

Having two threads for recruitment seems like a good idea. Instead of discussion on general recruitment and strategies which leads to we should sign player x,y. Then having that also discussed in a seperate thread.

I know this is a Warriors Forum but we do discuss NRL, Super League etc. Is it worth having a threads in the NRL section for the other sides say Brisbane Broncos 2019 or just a generic one. A thread to discuss the other sides recruitment, pre season then their style of play during the season?

The style of play or selections does get discussed in the round discussion but that is only for that weekend. Just a thought.

Worth a trial run I guess. Most of it gets lost in the weekly threads. Will look to roll out 15 threads for the other teams for general discussion...

Few things guys and girls.

After the season is done and dusted, in mid October to mid Nov there are likely to be some server downtime as we upgrade the server and core components, and also setup an extra instance of the site to do some testing before relaunching to a new-look site for next year. As some of the work will be done remotely by people in other countries/timezones, we may not be able to give a fair warning that the site will go down and intermittent downtime is likely as there may be things which are no longer compatible.

To give a brief overview:
1) The site will be updating to a major update of its underlying architecture which is the forum software. All posts and user accounts will be migrated(hopefully).
2) There may be a some features currently available which will no longer be available. At the same time there will be some features that will be added. We will update you on what features made the cut and were let go before the site is migrated.
3) Some unused sections of the site such as media gallery, stats etc will be retired. Some of the the custom enhancements unique to the site i.e. player ratings will not redeveloped as the costs cannot be justified.
4) Before migration there may be some things turned on and off, just ignore it if you see something unusual that you hadnt seen it before. Chances are we are testing something.
5) Have a good break during the offseason and recharge your batteries to support the team next season. As always your support of the community is appreciated.

snake77 snake77 There may be a way of handing the team threads as you suggested in the next iteration of the site, which would be handled better than what it could do in the current version of the software. Thanks for the suggestion.

Have a good offseason folks.

Hey team. Anyone have a link to this year's (2018) promo video. Much better than the one they've got now. Need to hear/see it again.
