Christmas reminder

Hello, Therapist again

If you don’t know when Christmas is then this year it will be on Sunday 25th December, all day. If you go to a midnight mass then you will experience the first part of Christmas day at the time when the first part is, and not a second later. If you go to bed so as not to intercept Santa Claus then you will most likely miss the first part and so your Christmas day will begin some hours into the actual day.

Hope that clears that up.

In more serious news: SIGN UP TO THE MOHAWKS CHRISTMAS DINNER

If you’ve no idea what I am talking about then check out this forum topic and fill in the form to tell Jessie that you’re coming. Book yourself into ice skating if that’s what you’re into.

More soon, see you at training tomorrow (come across Stanmer park if you don’t want to invoke the picket line wrath).

Add facebook to your forum profile

I’ve been adding a lot of modifications to the forum (see the shout box at the bottom of the main forum page for details).  One of them is the inclusion of a facebook profile link.  You can see it in action on any post authored by me.

Over the last year or two, people have suggested having a way to link to a person’s facebook profile.  To get it activated on your profile, go to your UCP and fill in the facebook field with your facebook account name.

If you dont know how to get your facebook account name then visit facebook logged in, click on your name next to your picture (top left).  Your account name will appear in the address bar after www.facebook.com/.

Fill in other information too.  Also add an avatar if you haven’t already!

Order Kit!

Hey one and all,

Just to say that if you have not already done so then you need to order kit, now really.

So, go to this forum page and read the relevant information and get ordering… there’s not much time left!

If you don’t get kit then you will regret it. Also, you probably won’t match anybody else at tournaments because we don’t have much spare kit so just get some. It’ll last ages and you will love it and wear it loads and loads and loads. Also, Mohawks kit is the sexiest around so you’ll be the envy of EVERYBODY else in the world, probably.

Catch you all soon

Tournaments

Mohawks at SEUMIR

Last weekend (November 5th & 6th) Mohawks sent three teams to Mixed Indoor Regionals. I will mention quickly that no other team sent three teams so instant well done to the club and its members for being enthusiastic enough to go, and good job Kneetu for making it a reality.

A full tournament report will be written soon but just quickly, result wise the weekend was fantastic: Mohawks 1 finished second, Mohawks Basketball finished fourth and Mohawks 3 ended up 14th, beating a huge number of second teams on their way, too.

Fantastic weekend everybody, and good luck to those heading off to nationals in a few weeks time.

Gmail users

So I’ve just realised something that may effect you resting your password if you are using a gmail account.  Not sure what to do about it yet but the workaround is as follows

Use your normal address but rather than @gmail.com use @googlemail.com

New Mohawk Website 2011

Hello Mohawks

So we’ve got a new website.  Its been in the making for a long time but over the last few weeks, what with my paid projects coming to a close, I put in the hours and (at the very least) got the site live.

The website you’ve come to know and love had an original design and integrated nicely with the forum (most of the time) but all of the content needed to be maintained by me.  That comes with inherent problems, namely there is only so much I have time or will-power to do.  With this new website we’re using a content management system (cms) that allows you guys to add content!  This is good because it means other people can do the grunt work!

Initially, those that can add content will be added on an invite only bases.  Eventually, however, every one of you will have the opportunity to add content, related to frisbee, the mohawks or something else entirely.  Watch the category ‘Website Updates‘ for more developments.

There are also parts of the website that visually I am not happy with.  I have left them as they are since I just wanted the site to go live.

Some of the more important things you need to know:

  • Your old forum accounts still exist but you’ll need to reset your password.  Your passwords were always encrypted and so migrating them to the new system was not possible.
  • The forum is more or less the same, however it has been updated to the latest version.  Lets see if you can find the differences
  • The rest of the site is built in a different system to the forum.  Once you’ve logged in, you may notice the differences in user areas for each system.  The forum is what you’ve been using for years.  The other don’t worry about for now (unless you want to).
  • Quick intro to:
    • Pages – are found in the main menu along the top of the page
    • Posts – are assigned to categories, which can be found at the top of the right-hand-side sidebar
  • You can also Facebook ‘like’ or Google ‘+1’ pages and posts now for all you cyber butterflies
  • If you have any suggestions then here’s the post
  • If you have found any bugs then here is your post
Finally you’ll notice on posts you can leave comments.  So reset your password, log in and get commenting!

Report a Bug

I’ll be honest, the release of the website was a little rushed.  If you spot a bug then please let me know in the comment section of this post.  Also if you spot any spelling mistakes or content that could do with being improved, here is the place.

This thread is not for suggestions.

If you report a bug please be a descriptive as possible, including the browser you are using and any error messages you get.  If you want to be really helpful then email a screenshot to webmaster@mohawks.co.uk

Thanks,

Website Updates

Suggestion Box

If you have any suggestions for the new site then this is the place to leave a comment.  If its content related then editors can probably help you more quickly than I.  I will be concentrating on bug fixes first and foremost.  If you’ve noticed a bug then please post it here.

p.s. please don’t be offended if I don’t comment on everything.  Other people – feel free to comment.
