    The survey was timely. It was hilarious to see the last thread created for the survey, so much QQ. Read faster? click faster? Idk.

  9. pierre lapuck says:

    I have no ads or pop ups on my page, never have.  The site needs to have some manner in which us Anglo-only Hab fans can understand the French content either audio or written.  I used to copy and paste entire articles into babal fish  or whatever but it was like reading a ninth grade essay written by a student who would likely fail English.  As a result I have access to a portion of the site and not it’s entirety.

  10. smiler2729 says:

    Not to start a war of language here BUT I was born and raised in TMR, my dad’s anglo, my mom’s franco-anglo, we spoke english at home but I went to french school until grade 7 when we moved to the U.S., I understand french but I’ve lost a lot of it by not using it enough which is a shame. Whenever you have articles by journalists for french sites, I could use a translator.

  11. fbkj says:

    well for one these loto 6/49 ads are makin me mental

  12. Castor says:

    I did already! Get off my back!


  13. SmartDog says:

    The survey’s too long.  Sorry.

    But one thing: the new lotto ads at the bottom are making me want to leave.  I’m on a laptop and they eat up a quarter of my viewing space with a message about something that I hate (or in marketing terms, is not only NOT relevant to me, but detracts from my interest in the core content). They make me SERIOUSLY WANT TO LEAVE… as in if I dissappear soon, they are why.


    Listen to the SmartDog. He knows his poop!

  14. shiram says:

    I do agree, those ads that pop up over the content of the website are quite annoying.
    They really deter from the experience, but i guess they make it so this place is free.

  15. cautiousoptimist says:

    Totally agree — it’s extremely annoying.  This particular ad also really slows down the load time of the page.

    1. – not a hockey site, but still kinda neat
    2. Mike Boone: “With Gainey at my side, I’d walk into any dark alley in the world.”
  16. cautiousoptimist says:

    This wasn’t on the survey, but man, those pop-up ads are extremely annoying — make me feel like I’m on some sketchy Russian-based website or something.

    1. – not a hockey site, but still kinda neat
    2. Mike Boone: “With Gainey at my side, I’d walk into any dark alley in the world.”
  17. SlovakHab says:

    I did it a few days ago.

    Didn’t think it was too long at all! And I was really glad to be able to express my opinion about HIO and about potential future changes.

  18. SmartDog says:

    There are other better ways.  They’re testing this as an ad product – let them know it stinks.


    Listen to the SmartDog. He knows his poop!

  19. 24 Cups says:

    That’s weird because I’m not seeing any Loto ads at the bottom of the page.  In fact, the only ads I’m seeing are the ones for the survey and the Ontario Power Authority (top right-hand corner).

    I took the survey last week and it was about ten minutes long.  It could be a tad shorter but it’s certaily not the same as completing the federal long-version census form:-)

  20. Propwash says:

    ABP works wonders on Firefox for the ads.


    Goalies in Montreal have two roles, netminder and scapegoat. 

  21. fbkj says:

    that worked splendidly

    thank you

  22. Danno says:

    You probably already heard this but you really need to upgrade the H I/O server. It’s crapping out now, imagine how it will perform in June…


    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  23. Mr.Hazard says:

    TELL ME ABOUT IT!! They insist on only upgrading it AFTER it craps out 15 times, and then they only do patchwork. Fix it once and for all! We’re 8 or 9 games into the season and already unable to load the site sometimes. In our day and age, and considering the popularity of the site (judging from all those impressive charts), it’s embarassing!

  24. BJT says:

    I’d love to, but as soon as I start it tells me to go away, but my participation was appreciated.
