I made a slight change to the forum main page. Hopefully it does not bother too many of you.

IPhone 6s.  It throws the recent messages up in the right.  Something I see when I switch a landscape to vertical view.   Also, sponsor icons at top overlap with first thread.  Together it threw me a bit.  I see though that the icons are fixed.   I actually like the layout but fear my old eyes will be taxed a bit.

Everyone needs to remember the changes are meant for the better....if people think it's for the worse...speak up.

It's your site for your use.    :drinks:

Go to admit I usually go straight to the "Unread Messages" page and hang out there, so I completely missed the change to the home page.  :drinks:

LOL ..........if you scroll down on the main page of the forum, you'll see very slight changes to it.

Small changes to the site......

Additional space for sponsors......... (Meaning of Sponsors) So members know I do not charge to support clubs or other local soccer sites....as long as the club or site supports the growth of youth soccer or  professional soccer in a positive way, I'll post an ad for them, of course space is limited, however to be fair I will rotate sponsors as often as needed for a month at a time.

The other thing you'll notice is when a member is online their avatar/icon shows up. So if you have not selected one, go in your profile and add one.

The 5 most recent posts show here......clicking them takes you directly to the post....

These are small changes..... I prefer keeping the site as simple as possible for all members.

I like having them at the bottom as opposed to the right side task bar. It was looking very busy before, now it flows easier.

I'm sure it bothers 3Play in some way or another  ;)

It may sound hard to believe but I like 3Play.

What makes me sad is how parents just bend over and take it these days........

I still love the game, miss coaching, but definitely would never miss the politics of youth soccer now. 3play is like .05% of the problem these days. To think I used to think Bernie handing out beers at coaches meetings was weird.....FACT

So true.  As one of my DKs ages out this year, many of the parents are getting a rude wake-up call, one that hundreds just in W. WA will get every year going forward. It has been verbalized weekly by parents at every game this season, parents that have not said mum for nearly five years as the same behavior occurred daily.  The conclusion being verbalized (from elite players' parents):
a) The club does not give a crap about our kid.
b) The club does nothing to help with positioning them for the next level.
c) This sure was overpriced.

Like Squash, I'm pretty disappointed in how parents take so much for so long thinking it will work out and only at the end have the realization that they and their DK own the situation, not the club and not the coaches, and being patsies to either is foolish.

Unless parents and DK take ownership of their youth soccer journey, they are victims in waiting.

A parent expecting a club to "care" about their kid is the problem, imo. Clubs exist to organize playing opportunities. They do so. Players have a right to expect fair treatment, and, for the most part, they get it. (Not that whiners can't find plenty to bitch about if so inclined)

I completely agree that the increase in cost is a bad thing. Used to be that teams that were good and needed to travel to find competition, traveled to find competition. Now teams that are bad and have plenty of local competition travel more than the good teams used to. It's phenomenally wasteful. Wish that clubs had DOCs with some character. Instead of mandating a bunch of pointless and expensive tournaments, they should be forbidding teams to waste money like that. Essentially DOCs are spending parents' money on wasteful events that do not benefit the players but which buy the club some ties to the organizers of these dubious events.

You just click on profile at the top of the page, then look to the left and pick forum profile......there are a lot to choose avatar from gallery  on the server. Pick one...scroll the the bottom and hit save.

Yea, but it doesn't let me "modify profile".  It's there, but nothing happens when I click on it.

Anyway, sorry to high-jack the thread.  Carry on....  :)
