We've decided to go with the real team names and logos. This was a decision to make it easier for new people to figure out the site.

Also you may have noticed all the logos on the main forum page. If you click on the logo it will bring you to that teams main forum page. Enjoy!

Thanks.

I for one was confused by that and also the thread that stated Minnesota was playing St. Louis is the first round of the playoffs. I was happy, but strangely confused as to what kind of site I had signed up for on the internet.

It's clearly marked SIM and there's really nothing much I can do in that regard.

What do you think of the click-able logos that go straight to the teams forum page?

I know it was my own fault for not knowing what was going on, but I just was caught off gaurd originally. I didn't really read where I was clicking, I was just clicking away and reading.

Meh... not quite sure... it does not lay out well on my screen. Perhaps smaller icons so that it's all on one line?

wprager: Can you go into the admin panel and fix that? I tried making one image smaller and then all the links were screwed up. I fixed the links but I don't want to mess with the size.

The NHL bought them, sold them to Reindeer or something and he re-named the team to the Coyotes. Sarcasm

Yeah, you should be able to...

Go from this:

To this:

For all teams.

Indeed. I'll make the change now. Thanks. Looks simple enough.

Made them 3/4 scale and added a couple of breaks after the last one (the "NHL Playoffs" should be on a new line).

We really should divide them in to East and West conferences. And also add alt text to the image tags. Maybe tonight.

I believe you said that when changing the colour schemes at GMH in the early days... and we all know how that went... heh heh.

At that size, perhaps break it into East/West so that it's two lines with 15 logos...
