ColRouleBleu Posted August 22, 2010 Report Share Posted August 22, 2010 Again this season we will post monthly Gameday calendars to assign who will create Gameday threads. In the past seasons some of our members have become real experts at creating masterpieces of graphics and information summaries and they are certainly welcome to wow us again with their skills! However, creating a Gameday thread is open to all and doesn't have to be an art or a science. It would be great if more members gave it a try this year How to create a Gameday thread Gameday threads are created like any other thread on this forum. You need to be a registered member, have a post count of at least 100 and you should have given your name to create it (see below for instructions on how to do that). To create the thread, make sure you are in the Gameday subforum; click on the New Topic button at the top-right of your screen; enter game identification in the Topic Title box (eg Game #1 Canadiens @ Maple Leafs Thu Oct 7 2010 - 7PM); enter the information you want to post in the large text box as you would for any other post; click the Post New Topic button at the bottom of your screen and voilà! you're all done. I want to give it a try but I'm not sure I'm capable - What should I do? - What do I post? Keep in mind that the purpose of Gameday threads is to have a place for everyone to discuss the game itself before, during and after it's played. A place where we can just yell Go! Habs! Go! comment on specific plays as they happen, cheer for a goal, frown on missed plays... in other words, give our 2 cents about the game in a fun and relaxed environment. The first post can range from simple text only repeating the title of the thread, to elaborate pregame stats and matchup information in formatted text using images, with everything else in between. Here are a few suggestions for items to post: Repeat the game information from the thread title Habs lineup Starting goalies Team leaders in points General team stats such as the current rank in the conference standings, wins and losses, PP and PK % and rank A few photos Those are only suggestions, be as simple or as elaborate as you want. You can browse the Gameday Archive for examples. How do I give my name to create a Gameday thread? There's only one simple way to give your name to create a Gameday thread: repost the most recent calendar and add your username IN BOLD and IN COLOR next to the game of your choice. Keep the names of other members already signed-up in bold so that we can easily see which games are left to choose from. When we get close to the end of a month, the calendar for the next month will be posted. When can I create the thread? New Gameday threads should be created no sooner than the day before the game and no later than 3 PM on game day (10 AM for matinee games). For back to back games, wait until the first game is finished before creating a thread for the second. I signed-up for a game but I won't be able to make it We understand that everyone has a life and will not always be able to be online during the designated time window to create a Gameday thread. If you have signed-up and cannot make it, all we ask is that you let us know. If you know well in advance, just come back to this thread and remove your name from the calendar, someone else will take over. If it's a last minute thing, notify one of the moderators by PM, we will see to it that someone can replace you. Again the goal is to have a thread open, you don't have to give reasons, just say that you can't make it. Here we go, let the fun begin! and as always GO HABS GO! -------------------------------------------------------------------- Pre-season: Wed Sept. 22, 2010 Bruins @ Canadiens 7:30 PM (your name here) Fri Sept. 24, 2010 Senators @ Canadiens 7:30 PM Sat Sept. 25, 2010 Canadiens @ Senators 7:00 PM Sun Sept. 26, 2010 Wild @ Canadiens 7:00 PM Mon Sept. 27, 2010 Panthers @ Canadiens 7:30 PM Thu Sept. 30, 2010 Sabres @ Canadiens 7:30 PM Sat Oct. 2, 2010 Canadiens @ N.Y. islanders 7:00 PM (Quebec City) October 2010 (regular season) : Game #1: Thu, 7 Oct 2010 Canadiens @ Maple Leafs 7:00 PM Game #2: Sat, 9 Oct 2010 Canadiens @ Penguins 7:00 PM Game #3: Wed, 13 Oct 2010 Lightning @ Canadiens 7:30 PM ColRouléBleu Game #4: Fri, 15 Oct 2010 Canadiens @ Sabres 7:30 PM Game #5: Sat, 16 Oct 2010 Senators @ Canadiens 7:00 PM Game #6: Thu, 21 Oct 2010 Devils @ Canadiens 7:30 PM Game #7: Sat, 23 Oct 2010 Canadiens @ Senators 7:00 PM Game #8: Mon, 25 Oct 2010 Coyotes @ Canadiens 7:30 PM Game #9: Wed, 27 Oct 2010 Islanders @ Canadiens 7:30 PM Game #10: Fri, 29 Oct 2010 Canadiens @ Islanders 7:00 PM Game #11: Sat, 30 Oct 2010 Panthers @ Canadiens 7:00 PM Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
