For everyone that is new to 247 Sports and Huskers Illustrated, !! For those that have been here a while, this may be a refresher or update for ya guys. Some of you may be used to other sites or message boards, but 247 offers a whole variety of different features. Hopefully this will help you out getting started….

The Bone Yard
The Bone Yard is the name for the Message Board on Huskers Illustrated.
The Dashboard- With the Dashboard feature you can view Most Viewed Topics, Most Active Topics, Most Up-Voted Topics, Most Down-Voted Topics, Hall of Fame, Hall of Shame, and Most Followed.
-For a topic to be rated, rate the first post in the thread by clicking the green Upvote arrow or the red Downvote arrow. You can rate any post the same way. This is also how a poster becomes “Rated.” Under the poster’s name you can find their number of stars, and by holding the mouse over those stars you can see their actual rank.
Recruit Profile Features
There are ton of different feature on each recruit from the Recruiting Coach Profile (i.e. Coach Kaz to predictions with the Crystal Ball feature.
-The Crystal Ball has predictions from the team site staffs, national analysts, and other outside the networks. You can also check out the predictions from one staff member such as Mike Schaefer or Michael Bruntz.
-Here is a link to all Nebraska Predictions
-There is also a skills section that highlights that measures different attributes such as Speed, Motor, Leadership, Explosiveness, etc.....

- Other features include Interests, Timelines, Photos, Stats, Twitter References, etc….
Here is DJ Foster as an example.
-The Blue Board- Main football message board.
-The Green Board- Main basketball message board.
-There is a Private Message feature, so if you have a question for a staff member or another poster and dont want to post it, PM them by clicking the white envelope by their name.
-Navigation throughout 247 is insanely simple. Next to each thread you will notice a Green Envelope. When this is lit up, that means you have viewed this thread. If there is a little orange guy on there, that means you have posted in that thread. You can click on this green envelope when it is lit up and it will take you to the last post you read. This eliminates scanning through the entire thread to find where you left off.
-You can “Follow” any board. When you do this, up in the right hand corner of your screen, under “My Boards”, you can quickly flip though boards without having to go to each team site first.
-You can feel free to post on other team boards. This is great for in season discussions.
-BYC Badges are handed out to regular posters and who contribute to the board. There is no set time period when these are handed out, just when they earned. Some have a "12" on them indicating the first Dirty Dozen given out. Also, check out the Bone Yard Crew Thread. This is your all things OT. A simple "What's up BYC? " and you will make friends in a hurry.
- 247 has the best Mobile Site in the business. At the bottom of the page you will be able to find this feature. This is great for smartphones and tablets.
- The Husker emoticons are and
-If there are photos thread, you can click on the first photo in the thread and it will pop up bigger. Then you can see every photo in the thread just by using your right arrow button. No need to open and close each thread to see all the photos. Can scroll through them all.
-When attaching a video to a post, please use the attach video link instead of the attach link, link. Will allow you to watch the video on the site inside the thread without leaving. Likewise, use attach link area for links and attach photo area for pictures. Helps with functionality/features to use the correct method to attach to the post.
Hopefully this gets everyone on the right track. Got a great group of posters and staff here. Got any other questions, hit 'em up in this thread or feel free to PM one of the Staff, Mods, or I will be more than happy to help in anyway I can.
Will update this tomorrow. Until then, checkout This 247Sports Products and Features Guide and if it helps a "Contact Us" page.

Your team. All the time.
Thanks so much - this was a big help!
Good. Happy to hear that.
Saw a new feller. Thought this may need a bump.
shouldnt this be pinned?
It was, but we took it down during Signing Day because we had a number of other stories up there. I'll pin it back at the top for a bit here.
The Great Gopher led me around this board for the first month or two. There are not enough kudos that can go out to him. UV for you sir!
Although I am an infrequent poster, I am a daily . So many things are said, by the time I get to read anything.... I just enjoy the back and forth.
Keep it coming! Welcome to every new member! And GBR!
One of the emoticons that I never see as an option is the "popcorn muncher". Can we get that added, or am I just blind???
