Rise and shout, the new CougarFan boards are out. All good things, including Jimmer’s time at BYU, must come to an end. And so it is with the old CougarFan discussion boards. But with the new boards come some great new additions, just like Kieffer Longson committing to the football team.
And now for the best part of the new boards: First and foremost, they are mobile friendly. That’s right, you don’t have to wait until you’re home on your desktop to start a discussion; the lunchroom and your phone will suffice.
So why the change? We understand that change can be difficult and frustrating, Tyler Haws come back soon, but there are two main reasons for discontinuing the old boards.
First, we could no longer enhance the user experience on the old boards because the technology they were built on was extremely old.
Second, the interface used out-dated web technologies (such as frames). This was another huge barrier to improving the discussion boards, especially the mobile experience.
All this means that on Dec. 31, 2014, the legacy CougarFan discussions boards will be discontinued, just like the ill-fated “Tradition, Spirit, Honor” uniform. But we want you all to set a New Year’s resolution to come back to CougarFan often and join in the discussion.
We are committed to providing the best experience for you, and your feedback is highly valuable to us so we can continue to improve and grow the best BYU Cougar site in the world. Please send any comments or feedback to [email protected].
Happy Holidays, and Go Cougars.
