The newest issue, beyond the need to disable email notifications each time a new thread is up, is that when I post a comment, regardless of device type, it disappears and I can't really do anything without re-loading the page. Again, more of an annoyance than anything else, but I sure hope that Substack can start addressing some of these things. Thanks!

Hey this seems fixed 😁

I should add that the comment is there when I re-load.

Yes, very annoying. It didn't do this yesterday, so I hope substack will fix this soon.

So I guess I'm done with this site now, what a shame. Have to sign up each time? email flooded each time and have to reset not wanting any?

I hope we don't lose you- you are one of many great voices here that I am always looking forward to hearing.

Hi Qin, we would hate to see you go. Those are not our design, we are having some hiccups as we transition urls. Hoping everything clears up in a couple of weeks.

Thanks. I'll hang in there but right now going from device to device is a real pain.

Stick with it! I had some account issues at first (where it kept logging me out to where I had to re-enter my password), but it all vanished.

Stephen Jackson has two kids, Cameron and Taylor — I wonder if he’s tempted to call at least one of them “Substack.”

Uhhh... what the hell is going on?

I take a much needed break and you go and do this??!

Ha ha! Similar to what Dino said below, wherever you go I’m there. Like a creepy uncle.

Just let me know if I have to do anything different with my subscription.

That’s it, no more breaks for Freddy!

The subscription should continue without any issue. And thanks for the sub! We don’t take it for granted, and the subs help keep the site ad-free and well-stocked!

I would love it if there were a way to disable email notifications period, instead of each time there’s a new thread. I didn’t have to worry about this previously, and it’s not a super big deal.

I contacted Substack directly and after a bit of back and forth I finally got it fixed so now I don’t get a bazillion emails. Not sure if that is the issue you are experiencing though G and B...

what was the fix? Is it an option in our profile settings, or did Substack fiddle with things on their end?

Might be...

Congrats, good work, keep it going, Go Dubs, etc..

Just curious on your email metrics: how many of your emails (the first that used the new name) got tossed/marked as spam?

Cuz, I almoooooost....

Email opens and article traffic seem normal (for the deadest part of the year!). But no doubt we will lose some people. Just trying to minimize that…

Just got into the new site for the first time. Nice. Just to let you guys know, the URL is still a little screwy. If I put "letsgowarriors.com" in my URL bar, it automatically redirects to "dubnationhq", but the site won't load. If I put "dubnationhq.com" in the URL bar, the site loads just fine, but the URL has been redirected back to "letsgowarriors.com".

Thanks, I’m very glad you made it here anyway. I’m hoping things will be settled in URL-wise by the time of the Lottery, when we will have fully dropped LGW.com and moved to dubnationhq.com.

Does this mean you're going to have to move your E1P videos again?

Technically yes, but DubNationHQ.com still will be the place to find them, so I don’t think anyone besides me will have to worry about where they are stored…

Expand full comment

Keep the redirects from current domain to the new one as much as possible (if at all). This will help transfer the link juice to the new domain.

Thanks for the suggestion. I wish, but Rich wants to stop the redirect as soon as possible.

Moving is always stressful, but I'm optimistic for the future here with y'all! It was great of Rich to take y'all under his wing at the old site but it was obvious pretty early that the visions were different for what the site should be. Seems like smooth sailing with the transition so far, so 🤞 things go as planned for the site more than they did for the team this past couple seasons!

I saw there was a change in a couple of emails last night and am finally checking it out today. I need to peruse the whole page a little bit to see what others are referring to but good to have you guys "here." I started following on GSOM probably 4 or 5 yrs ago now and exited there when you set up shop in LGW. And I finally felt comfortable enough to add a comment here and there. Something I'm not sure I would have ever done if GSOM had stayed as it was. Not sure why, but I just felt more comfortable making comments on LGW. And I don't see that changing.

I love this. Thank you and glad to have you here.

There was a lot of behind-the-scenes commenter moderation at GSOM, to keep it at the level of civility it had (such as it was).

The moderation has been very very light over here so far, and I’m grateful for that.

Expand full comment

Thank you!! GSOM was not always such a warm & fuzzy place, especially for a relatively new Dubs fan who lived in the middle of the country. I would have liked to have posted several times but didn't feel the need to have my head chopped off. LOL

I think the tone has been great here from the beginning. One or 2 glitches - but not much more than that from what I've seen. Thanks for all that you and the rest of the crew do!! This site is a big part of my day anymore.

One thing about having the subscribers here is that a significant portion of this community comprises stakeholders in a way that wasn't the case at GSOM. We are invested in its success, so we treat it a little more sacredly. In turn, we get treated better as well (and not having ads is just SOOOOOOOO nice).

Expand full comment

I also like that when we do get a little bit overwrought and maybe say the wrong thing, Daniel and the team have a really good way of calming us down and reminding us that we're family and can disagree but shouldn't fight.

> one subtle callout to Warriors symbolism and one very subtle callout

Random-ass, pre-coffee guesses:

* Three bolts of lightning and a circle = 30

* Two flag poles = 11

* Two flag poles + three bolts = 23

* Lightning bolts (and Thunder) aimed to the right (East)? Thunder & East Bay??

I also was thinking that the three flags/bolts were like the three championships, but lament that all of stopnpop's awesomeness would then be tossed by the wayside when we add a 4th next season ;-)
