Okay ladies and gents, Brett and I have been talking about how to make this site better (as we always do) and we decided to reach out and see if any of you were interested in helping out.

Specifically, we are hoping to get some help with the forums.  Fran’s Forums are all set up and working well, but the conversation isn’t super regular these days.  So, what we are thinking is to see if anyone had any interest in being a “Moderator” for Fran’s Forums.  The duties would include:

–          Approving new users

–          Keeping scumbag spammers away

–          Posting content to keep things active

Brett and I both fear that we are not able to keep you as up-to-date as we want to and were thinking the forums are a great place for you all to keep each other informed on a daily basis, especially when things are slow on the blog.

You don’t need to be super “tech savvy” to be a good Mod and Brett will help guide you through what needs to be done.

If you have any interest in joining the team, then please visit our “contact us” page and let us know!

Now, he is thrilled to present you with one of the most comprehensive and analytical Vikings sites that you are going to find. More than anything, he hopes you enjoy reading VT as much as he enjoys putting it together.

  1. sounds like an awesome idea, and I certantly hope we will see more to Fran’s Forum. Unfortunately I’ll have to be in the military form august-december, so I won’t have the time.

  2. Adam and Brett, could you guys add a section for news that other people find besides the forums. Then we could post links to other sites like PFT there. And then maybe have a tracker, like Top Commentors on the side, so people looking at the blog could see highlights of what is being posted in the Fan news section. I don’t know what to call it.

      • Have on top, up with the blog, transaction reaction, tweet gridiron is. Something that is quick to access and for anybody. I have alot of friends that read VT, but don’t comment in the comment section. Most of them know the latest Vikings news before I do. They send me emails of which sites to go to. A couple friends have asked why VT doesn’t have a FAN post or FAN news area, where the rest of us can post Links. I’ve been trying to get my friends to comment on here. Another reason for having it on top, would be the causal reader could read it, and maybe they would get more interested in the site.

      • Adam, I think the fans news section will help you and Brett. You are both busy, and do a GREAT job here. It would allow anybody to post the latest Vikings news. I think the news should have a link to it. No rumors or ” i heard it her stuff ” Rumors and ” I heard it here stuff ” can go in comments section. Some days I have a lot of time to check on Vikings news , some days I don’t even get on the internet. That is why, I think a Fan news area would be really good, because some people don’t have time to check all the websites for Vikings news. If there was a area where someone could come on here and just look for links and quick comments, it would help out the busy Vikings fan. And hopefully bring in more readers.

        • I assume you’re talking about a fan post like they have at the daily norseman where it’s right on the home page? I have to admit that alot of the time when I’m in a hurry I dont think about checking the forum but if the info was on the home page without having to click on a separate link it would get more attention.

          • Thanks for the input, guys, I think Brett is going to start working on some sort of display on the main page that will show recent activity in the forums. We can see if that makes it easier to see if you want to visit the forums and respond to recent activity.

  3. Speaking of news! Percy Harvin has been making all kinds of news……http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/06/19/leslie-frazier-doesnt-think-percy-harvin-will-hold-out/
