It just sounds so far fetched that the league would actually monitor bulletin boards.

You would think that they would have better things to do than to monitor the literally THOUSANDS of fan bulletin boards on the net.

And unless the site is using the logos, videos and such for PROFIT, I do not see how they can take issue with it. I am just not buying it.

I am a long time member of several fan forums and this is the only one I have encountered where the league took issue. Just does not make sense that they would have the manpower and resources to seek out boards like this and take issue.
This site does include a paid option, no? Making a profit or not doesn't matter.

The new domain should be fully propagated now. Thanks for your patience.

would this be the reason as to why my pc at home would not log on to the warpath? Even when I would try to use yahoo it would not let me in. I never had a problem before until the NFL pulled their little stunt...

Probably, it takes anywhere from 24-72 hours to fully propagate. I did the change on Saturday afternoon so by the end of today we should be in the clear.

Re: Important site news please read

It appears to be totally fine now. But last night and this morning when I was having trouble getting in through thewarpath.net, I just typed in thewarpath.org and it got me right through.

So that's a little suggestion for any of you still having some issues. Though those should be far and few between at this point.

thewarpath.net was down for me for the last few hours (mid-Atlantic FiOS). These are the pains of DNS, though.

Re: Important site news please read

It's alright. If there was ever a time for the site to go down I think the last few days would have been it. Though I guess Mid May might technically be a little better but thats besides the point. I was surprised though that after the whole cease and desist ordeal that redskinswarpath.com was working instead of thewarpath.net. Either way there isn't a whole lot to talk about right now, as the draft seems to invite the most speculation and once thats over the amount of information and debating is minimal untill preseason starts.

Re: Important site news please read

I'm sorry, but this is complete bullshit. They want fans, but they don't want fans to use thier team names? It's not like this is a forum that there's a huge profit being made from video's and pictures. It's a bunch of Men and Women supporting our players and teams. I don't know about you guys, but this sets me off. Good job Roger, way to help improve the image of the leauge by keeping the fans further distanced from the team and leauge.

Re: Important site news please read

We are back! I thought I was going to have register at another Skins site. If the NFL is cracking down on user sites that use licensed NFL names, they have a lot of work to do. I was surfing trying to find thewarpath.net and ran across a chiefswarpath. How come the NFL gestapo haven't commandeered their site? That site is loaded with pictures, videos, ...
