I have other ways of contacting my friends. My big upset is that this is no longer the site I loved three years ago when I signed up.  I don't mind change, but this change has almost been a little much for me.

 That's why I stuck around after season 2 started. I support the sake of friendship.
I'm not about points or respects or any of those other numbers on the board.

Seems to me like the changes this time are mainly cosmetic.  I'm not all that concerned with them ... just need to learn my way around again.

Indubitably!!!

This is an excellent site and the ownership has been wonderful about giving the visitors a voice. Most websites are ran by people too stupid to realize the reason a website exists and produces a profit is because of the traffic / members. I do respect that the ownership has the right to change anything they want to about the site... And without profit there is no point in keeping the memebers happy.

Thank You to the powers that be.
YES  
#11 | 1555 days ago

Why not?   I never figured everything out before these changes ... I'll make time to figure this out sooner or later.
YES  
#12 | 1555 days ago

As long as all you want to do is place bets and see how many times the same few people post comments in the locker room than nothing has changed for you and you will still enjoy the site.  And y'all said faniq doesn't listen to you!

sports is why i came here. not betting. without the stories on the front page or easily accessible for that matter, who the hell is gonna contribute? participation had gone way down there already. as has mine in general. now when tempers and politics flare up in the locker room it seems like betting areas are where i have to turn to    gonna try and stick it out a while, but this may be just the push i needed to get the hell outta dodge indefinitely.

#27 | 1555 days ago

When season two started I backed off a little bit (Tihs I only logged in twice in a months time.) and was all set to leave when management wanted to turn "Pick'em's" into playbook instead of keeping then separate. It's not like anyone listens to me anyway; but, I'll keep saying it... I want FANIQ back. You can keep this Gnikcuf facebook/twitter/myspace clone and burn it. I've already exchanged email addresses with a few people here on the Q for that day when I or they (or all of us for that matter) decide to leave the Q. The only thing that really keeps me here is the people with whom I have built some type of rapport. The news that I used to post in hotlinks (by the way has anyone seen that lately?) comes from Cleveland.com, NBA.com or ESPN. I can talk CAVS and Browns on Cavfanatic.com most of my blog entries are things that I have written on Bleacher Report and if I were to spend as much time creating content on either of those sites as I do here I could actually be a team leader.

I came here looking for a sports site, then stumbled on the locker room.  It is the only place I have found where I can be as retarded as I want, and I fit right in with all of the others.  Of course, being allowed to motorboat Leigh helped to keep me through the season 1 to season 2 changeover.

As opposed to those that never post any comments there and randomly complain about those that do?  What a F'n joke.  Those "same few" posters are what kept the LR from crumbling to sh*t when season 2 came around.  Sounds to me like a whole d*mn lot of sour grapes on your part.

#34 | 1555 days ago

The changes that have been made to the "Q" over the past year or so have really turned me and many others away from it. The "Second Season" is a pathetic joke and should have been flushed long ago. Now the powers that be have gone and screwed it up even more with the new formatting. FANIQ is circling the drain! There are too many other sports trivia sites to go to now for people to waste their time on here!

So Faniq is no longer a sports news/ social networking site. It has become a gambling/fantasy sports site. It seems really hard to navigate, but I will have to see if I can figure it out this weekend.

Trust me Becky, there is nothing more us mods want then for everybody to have fun.  The problem we run in to though is that in the current locker room there seems to be alot of posters who cant have fun unless they are constantly pushing the envelope and in some cases, violating the code of conduct.  I will admit that the mods have been way more lenient then what they should and as a result, when we do come down hard on somebody we get an all out war between the two sides.  As I see it though, there is no reason why us mods should constantly have to monitor what the locker room clique is saying and doing. The majority of you have been on this site for quite a while and should know by now what is acceptable and unacceptable to post in a public forum yet everyday, a handful of mods are forced to take time away from other responsibilities on the site to delete pics and edit posts from locker room users who should know better.  I get that there are always going to be a couple of posters who just dont care and are always going to post something just to get a rise out of others and see what they can get away with.  What us moderators want is for the rest of the locker room clique to use better judgement before they post something that might be unacceptable and realize that these forums arent private, they are public for everybody to see.  For every person you are making laugh with a post using an asterisk every other word to hide the profanity, I'm getting just as many messages from people who are offended by what they see.  That puts us moderators in a tough situation, a situation that we really shouldnt be in if we could get some help from the locker room clique.  There is no reason why we all cant have fun.....inside the guidelines set forth by the code of conduct that everybody agreed to when they joined the site.

I have no other way of contacting the few people i call friend so i guess its time to exchange addys before we all disappear for ever. So if anyone wants to stay in touch hit me up for an email or IM address  .
#47 | 1552 days ago

It's been too many changes lately and it didn't make site any better!Since season 1 I don't have that much fun on the site.I still don't understand why all this changes were necessary.After season 1 ,I left and then I came back,but nothing is same.That's the reason why some very good people left.During the season 1 I used to spend hours and hours on the Q every day,now I spend few minutes on weekly bases.Most of us older Qers still miss season1.

I agree.............I check in when I'm at the computer for e-mail or facebook. Only to see how everything is or to check on a comment that I posted three days ago. A year ago this place was the primary reason that I turned on the computer. At home or at work there was always a Q page on the screen. I blog else where now. Heck I wouldn't know where to post a blog here if I wanted to.

Season 2 should be over by now anyway.....................It sucked! Now lets move on to season 3!! Why couldn't season 3 be a combination of seasons 1 and 2. Something like season 1 with Q-bucks instead of points.

I'm glad that you agree with me!After season 1 I quit (maybe you remember me as LFCRedStarSerb),cause I just didn't have fun here anymore!All this changes killed the Q like we knew it once!I'm not in this fantasy games stuff,respects....I liked points and rankings much better (not just about points,but still I worked very hard to get where I was in season 1,top 10 in trivia,#1 in soccer trivia,#2 in NBA trivia),I also liked PQ's,"funny" buttons and I liked my friends who left the site because of changes.I couldn't wait to get home from work and and go to the Q in season 1!Now ,I just check my messages(and with the newest change I even don't know how to do that) ,maybe create couple of trivia questions and that's it.I just don't enjoy it like I used to!

 Same song, thirteenth verse... Yes I'm staying here. I don't know if it will be forever-- one never knows. I'll continue to post content on my teams and topics that interest me even if only the dedicated users can find it. I'd like to find a place to write a higher-profile sports blog. A former Q'er and myself are planning to collaborate on one. 

There are dozens of sports news & information sites: ESPN, FOX, CBS, SI, Yahoo!, the list goes on. While all have the capacity of posting content and making comments on articles, none I've yet encountered had the social infrastructure to allow for constant back-and-forth interaction the way FanIQ did... and I use the past tense because it may still exist, but all of us can see it's diminished. I know I am not alone in wishing to find somewhere online to feel that "magic" again, corny as it sounds.

So, still here for the duration. I've found another place for many of us to commune as well. But I still value this site, our community, and the hard work of our community manager and moderators.

There are other ways and means about contacting my best friends here at FanIQ and I will really think about it myself in the long run since I have observe some bad moves and changes that has been really different from the site that I have signed in since last year.  I have had good and bad encounters with some so  called friends here too that's really upsetting me.   I choose to  lie low here at this site and visit once in a while.  So it's definitely NO.
