Hornets247 Survey Part One

Published: May 27, 2011

Hey guys and girls, as you know we are working around the clock here at Hornets247.com to make this site the best site possible and the easiest way to do that is to get feedback from you. We wanna know what you like and what you don’t like. We wanna know what we can do better. In that vein, we have created two surveys- the first one very general and the second one more specific- that will help us gauge where we are at so we can blow it out of the water next year.

The survey is just 10 questions, all multiple choice. I took it myself and it took me just 1 minute and 28 seconds (is that some kind of Geico record?). Anyway, if you can take just two minutes of your day to complete it, that would mean the world to us. Here is The Survey.

If you wanna go further, feel free to write in below in the comments section. Any information is good information. Stories you liked, stories that you thought were a waste of time. Are we too objective for your liking? Are we “homers” that don’t write objectively at all. Too much data? Not enough? So on and so forth.

Again, thank you SO MUCH. And next week we will post part two, which will also be ten quick multiple choice questions, so be on the lookout for that.

(And one more time, here is the link for the survey)

    My ONLY wish is to clamp down a little harder on any participator that cusses and belittles rather than attempting to add thought.
    I had a long experience with Blog A Bull, and in fact was banned because I had the nerve to question Noah’s worth and contribution to the Bulls.
    Now I was cursed.
    I had such fabulous replies such as “you Stupid!” Ya, that was a real thought!
    Or many Fuck YOU!
    Now I was the one banned while all the cursers and idiots continued on as real contributions to the sight.
    Well, god bye all….

    Now, when I followed Aaron Gray to the Hornets, I searched hard until lucky enough to find 24/7 and atthehive.
    BOTH sights were good about keeping the high school dumbing down from the sight.
    Here, still quite a bit seems to still be the weapon of simple minds.
    But I am humbled by the majority of fans here and really feel I am the one a day late and dollars short.
    With 42 and others, I feel like I am talking to my college kids…I know they are now much smarter than their dad, but they are very nice to me and at least act like dad is working with something.

    So just a little tighter control on the cussing is all I would suggest.
    Never stop the fans who disagree, in fact hope more opposition takes part. In fact, I wish there was a way to get fans from opposing teams participate in live game discussions.
    That would be cool….as long as they were thoughtful and added to the action.
    All around me on the floor seats were VERY big Orlando fans!
    But we had a gas with each other all game long….trash talking and helping each other out with calls and such.
    And I was impressed how much they knew about the Hornets.

    So getting this in our live game discussions would be awesome!!!!
    As a note…when I attended the NOH/Orlando game in Orlando this season, I had a season ticket holder’s seat

      If nobody is aware…I had a terrible stroke a few years back.
      I continue to heal and in fact have become a 4.0 tennis player.
      However, from my spelling and typing, I am guessing many see some remaining damage. So please try to be understanding and see why some sentenses are out of order.
      I type, but cannot stop from my lines cutting and pasting at will and my brain seems not to catch it…until perhaps reading later, after sending.
      In my last post, you can see…”As a note…when I attended the NOH/Orlando game in Orlando this season, I had a season ticket holder’s seat…” was supposed to be the beginning of a new thought, but ended up at the end, totally out of content.
      Please understand…

      Agreed. Good back story.

      Hopefully Gray resigns for a reasonable price.

    Guys, my only real complaint and suggestion is to fix the wicked bad lag on page shifts. Going from page to page takes at least 5 seconds for the page to respond before beginning to change, and normally closer to 10 full seconds. I don’t know if others are experiencing this, but the problem appears to be within the web hoster’s network. If you guys would like me to provide some traceroutes I can.

      Glad to see you are among the living.

      I hope all is dry for you.

      This is actually something we’re gathering data on and is considered a top off-season priority. If phone calls alone don’t cut it with the host, you can bet I’ll be in touch.

      If it matters, my own little analysis agrees with yours generally, so good call. You sound much more confident than me, and probably with good reason.

        Glad my presence can still bring a twinkle to the Hornets247 eye. hehe

        Yeah we are holding tight here, water levels stayed around 10 ft instead of the 12-13 they were predicting, so it is just wait it out until the flood subsides.

        Yeah if you just do a basic tracert http://www.hornets247.com command in a command prompt you can see the pings explode and packet loss begins within the secureserver.net networks. However, as of me writing this now, I see that instability has cleared up. So either they did something, or it could be an intermittent router issue on their end. Also could possibly be the server that the site is on, but that would be pretty remote possibility.

        Let me know if you guys need any help… it’s watta-do.

        I think it’s intermittant. I get really good performance at times, and not so good performance others.

        Right now, it’s bad.
