Hey Scott, now that the season is over and the playoffs are starting to wind down, do you have anything planned during the off-season for this site in terms of content?

Hi Ryan,

Great question for Scott. I hope there is something up Scott's Sleeve as well as NFL85/Ed Hochuli's too.

It's been a great year on this site, and I'm very surprised how it has grown with members and content. Thank you all for your contributions over this season.

During the off-season I would like to make changes to the main pages of the site. I would like to add pages that will include several videos I have, including, hopefully, a tour of Ed's house. (the tour is dependent on us finishing some construction around there first. :) ) I would also like to add several pages of pictures. I have a couple cd's full of pictures to upload. Finally, I would like to create an area for "links" to other approved sites, such as the "what would ed hochuli do?" website.

Other than those, "off the top of my head", changes, I would like to make a few changes to the message board software. I would like to add a few modifications to the area that will allow users (especially Ed) the ability to be notified of responses within each area of the board, in addition to each thread/post. I also need to add a modification to limit registrations from "spammers". By far, the biggest challenge has been dealing with registration by new users looking to spam the message board with porn/viagra/loans/etc. There is a modification that will make it much more difficult for these "spambots" to register on the board.

I guess that's it for now, and looks like I'll have a full off-season.

Viagra, ha ha ha. Those "E.D." commercials are the worst. It should be called Limp D. syndrome, IMO, :roll:

Besides, I think God is trying to tell most of those men something...

Scott, First of all, great site and obviously a great idea. This is just an idea (sometimes I get these once in a while...it's weird) but is there a way, as fans, we can log on and have an explanatory section or game section that can explain the more obscure rule infractions and/or the gestures that go along with them? Or maybe a trivia section (especially in the off season) where there are questions where we have to match what ref made some particular obscure call and name the game it was called in??? Just throwing around ideas (well, actually typing ideas..throwing them would be difficult) Just something that we could have fun doing and debating while you would continue to get hits to the site long after the season is ended. Just a thought. Anyway, thanks for making this site a reality, fantastic job.

Hi Scott,

Moving into April 2008. Do you have any updates you have mentioned :?: Looking forward to see what you have going for the site for 2008 Season :!: :D All Ed Hochuli fans hope he comes on board to answer our questions too. :)
