    Gentlemen, the TF admins recently performed a software update which rendered our past forum display obsolete. Now, when you come to view our forum, you will only see the six main forum categories: PMFL Spotlight, Gameday, Team Mgmt, Draft Room, HoF, and Info Center. You will need to click on each individual forum category in order to access the sub-forums inside. If you want to know which sub-forums exist in the forum without actually clicking on the forum category, you can just hover over the "Sub-Forums" link displayed below the forum title as circled in red below:

    Once you have hovered over the "Sub-Forums" link, it will display the sub-forum categories as portrayed for you below:

    From there, all you would need to do is just click on the sub-forum section that you want to access, and it will direct link you to that sub-forum. Our forum locations/options haven't changed. All that has changed is the main view and how to access the sub-forums. Hope this helps for those of you who have inquired. Any questions, concerns, suggestions, pointers... Let us know. Thx.

    Too much change is a bad thing, not a fan...

    Our sentiments exactly. Particularly since we haven't had a voice in any of the design changes that have been implemented. I've already discussed it with Eddie. We'll be moving away from the TF forums when the XFN forums are available. It will be a "one-stop shop" from our XFN page and we will have control over our forum structure AND the design. Don't get me wrong... TF has served us well here, but XFN will be able to cater to our needs and we'll be able to deliver a league forum directly from our stats page.

    Also not a fan, especially considering you have to open each main forum to see which of it's sub forms actually have the new posts. I preferred the more information at first glance style that it was previously, rather than extra clicking and page opening to get the same info now.

    Agreed, just makes it less user friendly and more time consuming to get where you want

    Sorry, guys. We're aware of what an annoyance it is. We'll hopefully have an alternative available in the short term... Until then, thx for your patience.
