    Brock, I think there's something wrong with your MLBTR feed... it appears it hasn't updated since you added it.

    I just noticed that an hour or so ago... I'll look into it later. I have no idea why that isn't updating.

    I'd like some sort of editorial calendar of content by regular participants. Say, John, Parker, Nick, Seth and two other regular participants writes a weekly column on a given day. When I was EIC of CU, we had this and it gave regular visitors who are not daily visitors a reason to come and follow their favorite authors. Do that for six days a week and leave the seventh day for guest columns by the unwashed masses, such as myself. While I couldn't contribute weekly, I could write like three pieces a year.

    Between the TD guys, we do have a regular schedule that we are trying to keep with. and, we typically have a few strong blog entries that get mixed in. But, I really like this idea of formalizing it a bit more.

    It would be easier to make t-shirts, and t-shirts could be made without buying a brewery.

    Absolutely love the site! And I also come to it at least a couple times a day just to see if there is something new or added, whether it be a forum, blog, or even addition replies. I used to read every blogger here on their individual sites, and when Twins Daily came along to provide the most comprehensive Twins site available, I was in Twins Fandom heaven.

    I am pleased, even a little proud, to now be a part of this community with my own shares. In the future, I'd like to personally expand my own contributions with blogs and the such.

    As a lifelong Twins fanatic, the only thing I can think of to improve or expand on would be minor league coverage. I know many of you devote a great deal of time already to the Twins minor leagues, but I sometimes find milb.com and said sites to be a little lacking in their coverage. Not sure specifically what to add, links and the such, but perhaps a few more bits of information as to who is doing well, showing improvement, scouting reports, etc. just to keep us with the prospects and teams if at all possible.

    Mostly, just keep up the good work. The best baseball site around!

    Completely agree, and feel very lucky to have such depth w/coverage of the farm system. Crikket's stuff is outstanding & is a great complement/ enhancement to TD's stuff about the big club, for example. Of course, the Twins future will depend largely on players working their way through the system, so the need for coverage is there.

    Ideally, it would be great to have someone dedicated to each of the farm club teams so that the coverage is comprehensive, system-wide.

    Keep up the good work!
    Feel free to pile on about Suzuki.

    Had a thought for a minor improvement:

    I'd change the Forums links on the homepage to jump to the last page of whatever thread rather than the first. Nine times out of ten, the reason I'm clicking that link is because I can tell a thread's received a newer post than the last time I viewed it.

    If you click that little fast forward icon next to the time of the last post, it will take you directly to that last post.

    Better yet if you click in the triple arrow next to the thread title, it takes you to the last post you've read.

    Ha, even better. Thanks, guys.

    Although Brock, I'm only seeing the triple arrow if I go into the Forums section--not in the "The Forums" widget on the homepage.

    Great forum, I enjoy it. Wish sometimes there was not the same arguments or close to threads over topics that seem to repeat.
    Keep up the good work.
    This is one of the two websites I tend to post on.

    Yeah, there are only so many buttons we can put various places before the interface becomes too cumbersome to use or confuses the average person.

    Absolutely, makes perfect sense. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something.

    I'm giddy enough thinking about all the time I'll save with the fast forward icon Brad Swanson pointed out, rather than always clicking the forum title, then the Last button.

    I didn't have a clue either. Wonder what other lovely features I'm missing? (some of us need remedial instruction).
