  1. "Discord" new way to be in touch

    There is no expiring link. It still works, I just tested it. You can join on your own. EDIT: What killed it was the total lack of buy-in from lifer folks. Some people complained that they had to use an email address to sign up (as though you can't create a throwaway). Some people complained that AIM was fine and needed no substitution. If leagues don't demand people use Slack/Discord, no one will bother. It's a very stubborn community at times. I've never been a large part of it, and I don't expect it to change because of or for me. That said, I haven't used AIM in a long ass time, so I have no reason to join any of the leagues.
  2. "Discord" new way to be in touch

    I set up a slack team before. Almost no one joined. http://forum.nhl94.com/index.php/topic/17538-nhl-94-slack-team/
  3. Scoring with 0:00 left in a period?

    It's happened quite a few times to me in SNES. Never been a crucial goal, luckily.
  4. NHL 94 Slack team

    Email is visible if you look at someone's profile. I'd suggest setting up an nhl-specific email address if you want to stay anonymous.
  5. NHL 94 Slack team

    https://slack.com/downloads Slack has free apps for ios/android/windows phone and I assure you it's a better experience than aim.
  6. NHL 94 Slack team

    I've added kingraph and halifax as admins, although I don't think there's really all that much to do in the slack team. I guess they can delete messages or kick people out if necessary. So far only a few people have signed up, but I'm hoping more people test it out and we can come to a consensus on whether or not to use it. I use slack for a few different teams/games, and it's been worlds better than aim. We could have integrations in slack that ping people to remind them about game deadlines, or push notifications to dedicated league channels when games are uploaded (showing team/player/score or whatever we want to put in there). There's just a lot of stuff you can do with it. My main push for slack vs aim is that you don't need to manage a buddy list, it's automatically managed as people join/leave the team.

    Just an FYI, I added a service that will let you join. Just enter your email address, hit join, and it will email you a link: https://nhl94slack.herokuapp.com/ This works indefinitely.

    Aim is ok overall. But you still have to get everyone's handle from somewhere, and someone has to maintain the list and keep it current. Slack lets people join with their handle and it's automatically listed for everyone to see. The chat history isn't dependent upon one person having aim log the conversations, it's automatically saved on the slack server for you. Want to leave a message for someone that's never online? Just send the message and they'll get it when they pop in. Aim doesn't reliably do that. If everyone on the site were using it, I think communications would be much smoother.

    Also, just want to note, I keep this slack room open in the background while I work, so if anyone ever does join, feel free to drop me a message (wambotron).

    The expiring link is only for signing up, I'll keep updating it. The other option is to just allow a list of @whatever domains for signup in the room. Slack is pretty nice. Chat history, file drops, shared rooms, etc. I understand we have some stubborn folks here, but if they want to stay on aim, that's fine.
  11. NHL 94 Slack team

    I know a lot of you enjoy using AIM, but it's kind of beat and can be a pain to track people down. I created a Slack team for everyone to use. You can use the web UI to chat, or download the client on your desktop/phone and be in contact whenever. https://nhl94slack.herokuapp.com/ Go there, enter your email, and it will send you an invite link. I've created channels for genesis/snes/test games. If you need a custom channel, you should be able to make one (like, say, for a league) and invite whoever you want into it. Or you can privately message 1 or more people into one chat. Or you can ignore it and not join! Whatever floats your boat.
  12. Is it a really a league or just exhibition?

    That's the reason I ended up making seahag. It seemed like most people just wanted some exhibitions where they could track their stats, but no one ever ended up using it. It's still around as a relic (http://nhl94hockey.com/games/) I stopped playing in leagues because of it as well. Too many unresponsive people. SUCH IS LIFE
  13. Forum redirects to porn?

    That's weird, all of my porn is redirecting to the forum!!!
  14. SNES Team Rankings

    He really is quite good for the auto goalie, but their team is SO abominably slow and inept at shooting. That's what really kills them. Some games, when they're hot (and usually if you put Hough in), they can get a little fire in their bellies. But for the most part, yeah, awful team. Someone who is good with maths should create some sort of X-Factor for these teams. It'd come in handy when comparing teams in a head-to-head for user stats. Maybe something like: -0.7 DET -0.6 LAK -0.5 BOS -0.5 CAL -0.5 CHI -0.5 PIT -0.4 NYR -0.3 MTL -0.3 VAN -0.2 QUE -0.1 TOR -0.1 WPG 0.0 BUF 0.0 NYI 0.0 WAS 0.1 DAL 0.1 EDM 0.1 STL 0.2 PHI 0.3 NJ 0.4 HFD 0.7 TB 0.8 SJ 0.9 OTT 0.9 ANA 1.0 FLA
