  1. Link to game page with pre and post game articles.
  2. If you are referring to the ads that covered up the content that was due to coding errors by the programmer I hired and has been reversed. There are fewer ads here than on HuskerMax and that is by design.
  3. @BlitzFirst I purchased this site from the previous owners and it will take an absolute minimum of two years for me to recoup my investment so I am in it for the long haul. The only way I will recoup that investment and keep this site going is from a revenue stream. I do agree that advertising revenue is an ever changing medium and it will always be around in some form or fashion. The previous owners ran the site at a loss for many years and have now received a return on their investment that they deserve by selling the site. @knapplc It is not my intention to drive people away. It is my intention to find the happy medium of keeping the site going without a subscription model and the only way to do that is from advertising. It is unfortunate that with the upgrade the programmer I hired twice placed code that put the ads on top of the content. Not a good start and I will see to it that it doesn't happen a third time.
  4. Danny, I will consider making an ad free option. Too many posters want to label that as a subscription which is why I haven't offered it. I have stated it before and will state it again. Husker Board will not be a subscription board. The revenue model is 100% advertising and not subscriptions. A voluntary donation drive is not an option to get rid of the ads as the donors would be paying for those that don't donate. If enough posters want the option to pay not to view the ads I will add that option. That would give those that do pay the ability to view the board without ads.
  5. I was able to find and remove the code myself so it should be fixed now.
  6. I just contacted the developer and hopefully it can get it fixed before the weekend.
  7. Looking forward to going to the game with you. See you at the tailgate.
  8. I have two tickets to the Indiana game available. I offered them to the mods earlier this week and didn't get any takers. Here are the details. South End Zone Section 17, Row 37 - same seats my family has owned since the south end zone was built in 1964. Price - free to the first poster that replies to this thread. Tickets to be picked up from me at Smoker's tailgate at the corner of 8th and N on game day.
  9. Just kicked a 63 yard field goal for Dallas. Doing Nebraska and Kearney proud.
  10. I will see about increasing the amount of attachments you can add. May not be until tomorrow.
  11. It's 16 years, not 8. This site was created on May 13, 2003. Advertising as a revenue model is used by the vast majority of online sites. The previous owners of this site ran it at a loss for 16 years. With the current model in place it will take a minimum of two years to recoup what I paid them for the site. By blocking that revenue model you are essentially telling the people that provided this site to you at a financial loss that you don't appreciate what they did for the past 16 years. They came to me asking me to either buy the site or work with them to set up an advertising model with a strong preference to sell so they could spend more time with family. We agreed upon their desire to sell rather than continue and came to terms that we both agreed would remain confidential. Either way this site was going to have an advertising revenue model. As an internet security professional do you visit just about every news site with you ad blocker on. Does the OWH and LJS allow you to view their content with your ad blocker on? Do you have an Alexa or Google Home? Do you use Facebook? Do you use GPS on your phone? Do you use a web browser to surf the internet? If you surf the internet with or without ad blockers Google, Apple, Facebook and others have a profile on each and every one of us. They use that to target ads that they believe best fit those profiles. It's a fact of life. Bottom line is this site would cease to exist without a revenue model to support it.
  12. Illinois upsets Wisconsin with game ending field goal. Iowa wears down Purdue. Indiana - Maryland up next.
  13. The developer that did the upgrade is still involved and if any more issues like the mobile ad over content comes up it will be addressed and fixed. Glad it got done before the weekend.
  14. That issue has been fixed.
