Welcome to the NEW SITE!

Well, I’ve threatened to do this for a while (poor RMH has been PROMISED by me on several occasions it is “almost there”), but it looks like the day has finally arrived!  WELCOME TO THE NEW ROX WALK OFF SITE!!!

I’ve tried to update the look and feel of the site, as well as the color scheme, to make it a bit more “modern”.  I am hoping all is well with the old posts/comments coming over, as well as new posts/comments working flawlessly, but I’ve worked in this industry WAY too long to think it will be perfect.

So, feel free to comment below on things you like, don’t like, find that don’t work or don’t stoke your fancy!

I can’t believe I started this site over three years ago!!!  I believe that is longer than ITR lasted (woo hoo!!!)  I could NEVER EVER EVER have continued if it wasn’t for the AMAZING support of RMH, who has completely taken over the management of posting.   RMH my friend, Thank You!!!!   I also am in a HUGE debt to Jeem for being  stalwart with his stupendous post game prose.  Jeem, you are my architect hero!!!  I’d also like to give a shout-out to Dr. C, who can fill a page more than anyone i know and somehow make it seem like the many words are needed, wanted and loved.

I would like to make two “requests” if possible.  No, i’m not requesting a winning season for the team – that would be quite audacious of me.  But I would like to request the help of more writers.  We would love to have some of you kick out features, pre/post game posts or whatever you’d like.  The more we get on the site the better!!!   Just go to the CONTACT page and fill out the form or let me know below if you are interested in writing.

The other request would be for donations.  When i first launched in 2012 I was hoping that i could have some ad’s on the site to bring a little coin in.  Well, that was basically all it did bring – a few coin (like 3 dollars a month).  It wasn’t worth it, so i removed the ad’s from this new site for now.  But, there are several bills that need to be paid to keep the lights on and the site going.  If you can find it in your heart to donate I would be very appreciative.  If you are feeling a little more “frisky” you can always make your donation “reoccurring” – so i could get a little something each month.  I find when I ask, people are generous, but then it quickly becomes an out of site – out of mind thing until I ask again.  So a few reoccurring donations in-between my “fundraiser” efforts would be super sweet.

Thanks all for keeping with us.  On behalf of the team, we hope you love the new site, tell your friends, kick out some sweet comments and open your wallets!!!

GO ROX!!!

Really nice, Jared! Thank you for all your efforts of the past 3 years! And thanks all. I love the sunset “art photo” 🙂 Two comments: no author shown on the column (although it was obvious in this case); no time stamp on comments (not a big deal).

My old eyes could use more contrast between print and background and miss the list of recent posts which helped me see at a glance if anyone had posted something new.

The recent comments are still there on the front page of the site, but i do need to add them to the interior of the site…

As far as contrast, i’ll check to see if the text is actually black or not…as i type this it does seem a bit lite…do others have issues?

The contrast when typing IN the comment box is very low. Gray text. The site itself has black(er) text. It’s kinda small though. A lot of us are oldsters, as we know:)
