    Ban Thread

    Boubabi has been banned indefinitely. While I realize this was said once before, he was allowed back on the ideas of second chances and due process. At this point we’ve exhausted all alternatives with minimal to negative results. Nobody can reasonably claim he wasn’t given ample warnings and opportunities, up to and including an extraordinarily specific warning following his above suspension that this would be our next course of action. Ultimately his reaction upon returning has left us no viable alternative to following through on that warning. It’s become sadly clear that something needs to change, and no further amount of warnings or public statements was going to do it. We’ve been on an unsustainable path as a community the last while with the admin team forced to devote more time than in any other period in VHL history to keeping the peace and disciplining members. It’s my hope that this action puts us back on a better track to where we can all have fun without taking the league too seriously.

    VHL Portal Update - New HOF

    It's been awhile since I gave you an update on the VHL Portal, and this one is a big one! Though, I have been rolling out some of these features slowly of the past couple weeks so you might have noticed some already. The main thing is one you haven't seen though, the new Hall of Fame. With the pride we all tend to take in our history, it was only logical that we give the HOF what it deserved. And addition to looking 100x better than the HOF section of the forum, it's also going 100x easier to update every season and that's good news for everyone. The new HOF is now visible in the menu bar. Let's go through all the features: Hall of Fame - Searchable/Sortable indexes for both HOF Player and Builder articles - A page to show off both Founder Cup and Continental Cup banners along with their respective rosters - NOTE: These pages are not visible on mobile, for obvious reasons once you see them. However the listing of winners can still be seen under VHL/VHLM Awards. - Full history of each VHL and VHLM award winner - Overall career statistics and single season records - At this time, career stats/records do NOT update every sim. I had originally hoped to do that, but for the moment had to settle for them being updated after each season/playoff (that being said, the updating part is automated and only takes a minute for me to run it, so it should be quick). - Right now, these are only showing S49-Present. However, I will be adding as much as possible up to S35 within the next couple days as Jardy digs through his old files for me. Player Pages - Player Pages are now linked up with the HOF's award index: in other words you can now see all of a player's individual awards at the bottom of their player page. So we now enter the seasons award winners once, and all player pages are automatically updated - a drastic improvement over manually editing people's forum player pages. You can also click these awards to go the award history of that award. - Added ability to see multiple team stats for players traded during the season. However, this will only display while that season is the active season so when I switch the active season to Playoffs it will become one total stat line. - I really want these player pages to be used, and so I made them accessible as possible: Now, virtually anywhere you see a player's name you can click on it to go to their player page (if they have one, which is approx. anyone who played in S51 or beyond). This includes all stat pages (team scoring, pro leaders, ect) All Players Stat - Added a new stats page showing overall league stats: http://vhlportal.com/stats/league (it's empty atm because playoffs haven't been simmed yet) - Acessible under STATS > LEAGUE OVERALL - Not sure why it took me so long to do this - I really like how the goalie/player tabs work and plan to use them in future projects Other Changes - Drasticly improved how Team Scoring page is generated - Improved tables on the Archive - Added a 'Breadcrumb' trail of links while you navigate pages (i.e. Home / HOF / VHL Awards) - Several mobile display fixes - Added 'Forgot my password' - Added a shitty Playoff Standings page - Added ability to switch seasons on Standings - Added a tool to post games for @JardyB10 (why da fuck did I wait until he came back to do this) Lastly I want to give a big shout out to @STZ for doing the awesome GFX that you see in the HOF, as well as @boubabi, @Bushito, and @Jonessee27 for helping me get 58 seasons worth of HOF entered into the Portal's database.

    S59 Playoffs

    Why hello there VHL! It's me! JardyB10! I've returned, and I'm simming! Anywho, as you may have noticed, the VHL regular season quickly came to an end today! Unfortunately I wasn't really paying attention to VHLM pacing and see they're more than a couple days behind. SO, I do solemnly declare that we will not just have one day of rest and updates for everyone to get their shit together, but TWO days of rest, with VHL playoffs officially starting on Wednesday night, March 28, 2018. That should give @Higgins some time to reasonably double sim as needed to catch up. :] THANKS GUYS I LOVE YOU GOOD TO BE BACK

    Moving the Forum

    We're nearing the end of our current billing period with IPB hosting, so we will be making the move either today or early tomorrow morning. IPB's restrictions means we have to wait for them to provide us with backups, so we can't give an exact time as to when we'll recieve those. But you should EXPECT DOWNTIME WITHIN THE NEXT 24H Beyond that, connecting to site via vhlforum.com might be spotty for a day or so. That said, I'm going to try to replace the 'FORUM' link on the Portal (you may want to bookmark the portal) with a direct link to the new server once we make a change, so if vhlforum.com isn't working for you yet you SHOULD be able to access the forum through that link. It can take up to 24-48h for vhlforum.com to work for everyone.

    Retention Sig Campaign

    Hey everyone, as you may have noticed the VHL has got an influx of prospects and a huge boost in new members lately. That is why instead of just resting on that we need to make sure we are helping those who have signed up through chat, through posts and through our established links around the board. One of the things we want to do is make sure they feel apart of the community and with that we think this will be a win-win for all parties. For the next week (April 8th -> April 14th) you may create signatures for new members players. Two of these signatures (max) will reward you with 2 TPE extra. That's an extra 4 TPE uncapped just for making your graphic point task one that is for a new member. So basically nothing special from the sig makers, except that it is for a new member and you may claim 2 Uncapped TPE on top of the 6 TPE you'd get for the sig in the first place. Let's make these guys feel apart of the forum!

    VHL Portal - Team View

    Another major new feature! There is now a page for each VHL team, like so: http://vhlportal.com/stats/team/9 These pages display quite a lot of information about players including all attributes, TPA, stats and player info. It also displays the teams schedule (with links to each game) and all awards won by that team or a member of it. As well, all player names are clickable to take you to their player page to view their career stats and such. This makes a very convenient way to access player pages most of the time, versus the kind of clunky player list page. Overall, I think these do a nice job of tying together the index/stats aspect of the Portal as you now have a super convenient way of accessing most of the info you would normally go to the index for. The team pages can be accessed through the logo images above the menu bar similar to the links on the forum. On mobile, these can be accessed under the TEAMS menu. Note: If the logo images are displaying all fucky, you just need to clear your browser cache. Things to add to this soon: - Display lines - Display team stats (i.e. special teams, ect) But I need to figure out a good way to do those and right now I need to fix up the VHLM support now so I'm going to put those two off for a little bit. Also: I uncovered a mistake I made that was causing really excessive load times on areas of the site that have a lot of links to player pages, like Team Scoring and Individual Leaders. The fix cut the amount of database hits by about 95% so you'll likely see a noticeable load improvement in those areas.

    2nd Player Idea (kind of)

    Originally I was against having them go to the VHL at all (just VHLM) but you have a point about replacing the scrub inactives. I think the only thing I'd modify from your proposal is to add a rule you can't make a VHLM Star while your original player is in the VHLM, you have to wait until he's in the VHL

    With the influx of new members at an awkward time we as a league kinda got left scrambling for ideas to keep the new guys around. So i stole an idea from the SHL about interested prospect thread i shares abit about myself(deeper than the SHL) and asked a few simple questions help us get an idea of these new members. Perhaps this could be a regular thing(even if not ill keep doing one every year in presser for them to earn 2TPE) Maybe like award 1 TPE per VHLM team they fill out. Gives new guys something to do well they wait and gives us a big picture more than we have now.

    I actually enjoyed what Beave did setting up and running the live stream. It takes some work to do that and so I was thinking, why don't we have it where this can be say a monthly event? Or just when ever any member has the time to do this? They could earn some TPE compensation for running it and players picked for a game could win TPE for achievements in the game. It might add more spice to the game. It could include both the VHL/VHLM.

    Ban Thread

    For his role in an altercation (which has since been hidden) @boubabi has been put on post moderation for 24 hours. In addition, for abusing mod powers given to him for the HoF move he has been given a 1 week PT ban. This means that he may earn no TPE for the week of April 2nd to 8th. This was delayed because the server move caused an error with the forum that prevented us from editing members.

    Unfortunately we just have no control over this right now, so I still can't give an updated time. Higgins and I have been ready to go waiting for them to do their part since Friday. Not much we can do but wait for them. But definitely confirms the decision to leave them, I mean having the ability to make your own backups is a pretty standard feature on any host so it's kind of ridiculous that we're waiting days for them to do it for us. For now I would say that if we don't hear back from them by tonight we will send them another message to complain and say we want it done on Tuesday.

    How do I create a player?

    Im on my phone so @Beaviss will be better help.. but.. 1. Go to the "Create A Player" sub-forum. 2. Pick what you want - Goalie or Skater Template. 3. Fill out all the information and make a topic with your position and player name. As far as I'm aware, you get 30 TPE to start to apply to your player. 4. Use the "Update Scale" section in the Create A Player Sub-F to apply that TPE. You can be a speedy winger who scores, passes or has the hands of Peter Forsberg (with his strong physical abilities too). OR, nail the defensive or offensive dman! Goalies are great too but I think we got a few of those right now. Defense is likely high in demand but I encourage you to pick what YOU want to be - not what others wish or the league needs. Need anything else Fire me a PM or hit us up in here!

    S60 [Not so Live] Draft Lottery

    Sorry about this being not so live, unfortunately 7am is the only time I could get it done. The recording is genuine however. I also apologize for my voice being a tad low, I haven’t recorded on my mac in some time so my levels were off. It’s legible if you turn it up but to recap in case you can’t hear me: Number 3 was drawn first, corresponding to the Calgary Wranglers. Because teams cannot drop more than 1 spot, Quebec automatically receives the 2nd overall pick. In the recording I was dumb (it is very early in the morning) and then drew third overall as Quebec (From Riga). However this was an error on my part. Davos cannot drop more than 1 spot either which means they take third overall. This means Quebec (From Riga) picks 4th. Forgive me for this being a little oddly done, it was my lottery cherry if you will and it was far too early in the morning for it.
