The New Obstructed View (and a word on ads)

In Other Topics, Site, status by myles91 Comments

As you can certainly tell, OV has gone through some extensive changes. While the partnership with Bloguin alleviated much of the work for us (and when I say "us", I mean dmick89. He is the one that does nearly everything behind the scenes, and OV simply wouldn't exist without his leadership), it introduced other problems. Chief among them were the …

Playing online casino games is a fantastic way to pass the time while at home, this is because all you need some sort of device such as a phone, tablet or computer.

Cubs free agent contest

In Major League Baseball, Site, Transactions by dmick8947 Comments

I'll just say right now that there is nothing to win, but bragging rights. So if you're someone wanting to win something, well, we can give you a Kyuji Fujikawa bobblehead and that's it. Seriously, if you really want the bobblehead, we'll send it along. So if that's incentive, great. Otherwise, there is none. It's a free agent contest, but …

When we first started our forum we used a plugin that didn't end up working well with a later theme we used so we switched to bbpress. In the process, about 2500 posts were lost, which has always bugged me. I keep Another Cubs Blog around because it's content that myself and others spent a great deal of time putting …

Obstructed View Projections Contest Results

In Projections, Site by dmick8968 Comments

Prior to the start of the season we set up an over/under projections contest. It was rather extensive so fewer people than we'd hoped entered the contest. Plus, there aren't all that many people who are dying to have an Obstructed View t-shirt. There just aren't. Really, trust us. It was a long survey. We used 11 position players and …

Obstructed View is now responsive

In Site by dmick8921 Comments

If there's been one thing about our move to WordPress that has irritated us the most, it's the lack of mobile options. There are several, but each comes with their drawbacks. Most recently we learned there were some issues with the mobile theme we were using. It wasn't anything major, but enough of an issue that something had to be …

The winner of the Obstructed View Unofficially Official 2013 Chicago Cubs Slogan* Contest has been chosen. There were so many great entries, in a way you are all winners, but in a more accurate way, there was only the one winner.  By virtue of a plurality of the popular vote by our readers (and possibly members of their families), the …
