Okay, looks like I’ve figured out how to get to the old threads. Now I’ll need to open them all, and redo the old homepage’s links. I’ve also been taught how to keep a thread at the top of the list.

ETA for all of this is early next week. 1925 results should be up tonight.

I think we have all learned an important lesson about what happens when there is no paper trail in the electronic voting machines. . . .

I'm just sad, because my old posts were under Bob T and now I'm BobT and I don't get credit.

My New Vote-Rigging Technique Is Unstoppable

Matt/Philly, do not even get me started. We already have a U.S. Senator elected with the help of electronic voting machines programmed by people who work for...the very same U.S. senator whom the machines identified as the winner. If you're keeping score at home, that means the U.S. Senator in question owns the voting machine company.

But surely no American would really rig an election said Chicken Little.

Good work, Joe. None of the old links worked, and the archives didn't seem to go back past this year, so some good stuff seemed lost.

On a related note, is there any way to recover those "homepage" links that people put in their posts? Because those were often very important to the discussion. Or they were good timewasters.

Okay, I've opened up all of the old threads.

I've got most of the links fixed on the "Important Links" page too.

Major issue - many comments throughout the project have been sporadically truncated, usually to the first paragraph. I've got a 'trouble ticket' in with the home office; hopefully that stuff can be recovered.

What else should be on my to do list?

Thanks, Joe!

World peace, end hunger, abolish the Dh ... nothing too big. :-)

Was it just my computer, or was anyone else unable to load up the pitchers thread? Also, when I clicked on the negro leaguers thread, I got the 1924 ballot discussion page.

Chris, it's not your computer.

Where is the Important Links page? I can't seem to find it anywhere?Ï
   12. DavidFoss Posted: May 16, 2004 at 06:53 PM (#630972)
Important Links is here:
http://www.baseballthinkfactory.org/files/primer/hom/

Its a bit funny because if you click on the discussion link or on the side-bar link... you get to this page... and the information at the top is gone.

The 1924 discussion page seems to be the default link for links that are not quite hooked up yet. All the ballots/discussions/results appear to be up, but many of the other stuff is not there yet. Quite a bit of progress though!

I'm going to go through and fix the broken links on the Important Links page.

"The 1924 discussion page seems to be the default link for links that are not quite hooked up yet."

Correct, as I was cutting and pasting, that's the default URL I used, then I changed the end of it. The ones I didn't get too are still on that default. I probably should have made the 1926 discussion the default, but it wasn't my intent to not finish . . . hopefully by morning all will be well in this neck of the woods.

So what should be first on my to do list now?

I'm leaning towards Pennants Added, any other ideas?

It may not be in your hands, Joe, but recovery of the truncated entries on many threads, most especially the new eligibles thread and the Negro Leagues thread, would be great.

If you're waiting on the Home Office on that one, then, yes, by all means Pennants Added!
   16. Joey Numbaz (Scruff) Posted: May 21, 2004 at 07:55 AM (#639000)
I am awaiting the home office on the truncated threads issue - I'll keep you posted.

Okay Pennants Added it will be. Hopefully in time for the 1927 election.
