    NSC Housekeeping

    Some updates on a few bits and pieces on NSC...

    1. Ad partner change. After some users experienced problems with some rogue ads with our previous partner, yesterday I swapped out the ad partner on NSC. Along with this, you will see, ideally only once per device, the option to tailor how ads are delivered to you on NSC. Regardless of what you choose, ads will still be delivered, but essentially you have the choice to have targeted (based on other sites you've visited etc) ads, or non-targeted.

    2. NSC is "not secure". Browsers have, or will, begin to tell users that a site is not secure if it's not running under an HTTPS connection. NSC never has run under HTTPS so is no more nor less secure today than it has ever been. However, I will be looking to get NSC to run under HTTPS over coming weeks. It shouldn't make any difference to your use of the site when it happens.

    3. Making NSC a responsive site. Unfortunately vBulletin 4, on which NSC runs, is not brilliant with regards to being mobile responsive. I have however found what seems to be a decent enough responsive theme for vB4 which I will buy over the next week or so, and install as a test. I will invite some users to try it out as part of that test. if it goes well, it will be phased in. This will mean that the look and feel of the site may change slightly and experience tells me that this will cause people to moan vociferously and abusively at me for a period of time.

    This may ultimately mean we remove Tapatalk as an access method for NSC, but only if the mobile responsive theme is considered fit for purpose.

    4. Amazon Christmas draw (http://www.northstandchat.com/showth...o-Dot-on-offer) - That didn't happen. I'll do it over the next week or so. Dig out your email receipts from Amazon purchases in November and December!

    5. Predict the Run In competition (http://www.northstandchat.com/showth...***-PRIZES-***) - The winner wasn't found and prizes weren't given. I'll dig out that thread over the next week or so and do that.

    6. The Sportsman Perfect 10 competition (http://www.northstandchat.com/showth...ize-for-NSCers) - the winner received their cash prize directly from The Sportsman.

    7. There may be a few moderator changes on the site for the coming season, including our first ever Palace fan moderator.

    8. If you are involved in a Sussex-based business who may like to promote to NSC's thousands of highly-engaged locally-focused audience on a site that gets c40m page views a year - please get in touch.

    9. If you can write, and would like to occasionally jot things down for a large Albion audience to read over the coming season - please get in touch.

    10. I've been slightly less shit at reading and replying to PMs of late - I'll try to keep that up.

    11. I was joking about the Palace fan moderator.

      Keep up the good work boss. I browse other club’s forums now and again, this is streets ahead of most with or without the odd wrinkle.

      Will any of this result in all post counts being reset to zero?

      You've very kind but also a bit mistaken. I've largely ignored NSC and all things Albion for the last 2-3 months which is poor form. Whilst I can make semi-decent excuses for not doing some of the more time-consuming structural things, it's inconsiderate to run a competition and then not sort out the prizes in a timely manner and to not look at my PMs far more frequently.

      As it is, I realise I've now committed to a fair few things in quite a short timeframe. Let's see where we are a week from now!

      Well even if you're leaving it to rot, it's still better than most

      NSC is one of the best football forums available, that's why we have so many other fans visit and stay.

      There's a community of football supporters who share all sorts of news and life stories which makes NSC a fun, engaging and entertaining place to interact and gather information without having to meet people or even get dressed. The users rarely post things that are abusive, insensitive or with the intention to offend and that's a credit to the NSC community, which you helped birth and grow, that a forum continues in that way.

      Bozza you have created something very impressive and it is appreciated by the majority on its members, please keep up the great work

      Top work. Had a double take on the palace fan bit. It would be quite an experiment if we could swap you for a loan deal with the BBS for a couple of days and see what carnage ensued on both sites
