    Done.


    You should probably advertise this in the forum as well to get additional eyes on it.

    I moved this to the Twins forum so it will get more eyeballs. I just discovered that vBulletin doesn't have an option for global threads out of the box, which is a little face-palm worthy. Next time around, I'll be sure to install a plug-in that handles creating global threads that appear in every forum.

    Really? Seems like an odd option to pull considering it's been a staple of forum administration forever.

    Excellent. It would especially be nice for accessing the active game thread from any forum.

    Yeah, I'll probably make use of it for game threads, as well. Something to add to the list. I can't believe vBulletin doesn't have it out of the box.

    Done! It was totally painless.

    snepp is right. :-) That's how we track our page views, etc.

    Thanks again to everyone that take the time, however little, to fill this out. It's very important to potential partners, and is the kind of small thing that can really help the site reach more people.

    Yep, but Analytics is pretty shoddy when it comes to demographics. They give you great information about location and technical specs of the user, but nothing about age/gender/etc. It's pretty obvious why they do it (Google has no idea who is actually sitting in front of the computer) but it's still lacking when we're trying to really dig into our target demos.

    Survey done. I hope to be cool enough one day that John will make reference to me when discussing the demographics.

    Quantcast is pretty good and they are free, I'd suggest signing up with them as they seem to hit demos overall quite a bit better.

    I really wanted to answer these questions but my hatred of the man refuses to let me do it.

    I wasn't sure if he was referring to me, but then I realized that I MUST be the only baseball-watching Jim in Iowa, right?
    I opine about the Twins and Kernels regularly at Knuckleballsblog.com while my alter ego, SD Buhr covers the Kernels for MetroSportsReport.com.
