    I can't really put my finger on why but does anyone else feel panthernation took a step back with the new site? I get that it's newer architecture, probably more secure and easier to manage but seems like there's no activity any more and it's not just because of the teams performance. I really miss just seeing how many unread posts I have and quickly reviewing them.
    "I think they're very good," Farley said of the preseason top 25 Hawkeyes. "But so are we."

      Traffic is basically a function of how well UNI is doing. Being in the playoffs and March Madness are huge things to miss lately.

                        I get it on phone and computer - much more on my phone when typing but equally as bad on both when I copy and paste. Which is why I assume it is a format recognition error.

                        I try to use exclusively Chrome on my iPhone and computers. I have had the same issue with Firefox as well. Can't confirm from IE though, because f IE and it's garbage browserness.

                          I changed the character encoding just in case. I haven't figured out how to duplicate it so it's hard to test any changes. I've tried Chrome/Firefox on PC. Chrome on Android. I'll have to try an iPhone.

                          Paste from word ‘ just to see.

                            I tried pasting a few things from UNIPanthers.com in my previous post and saving it to see if I could duplicate the result and it came out fine from my PC. UNIPanthers.com is usually horrendously bad at cutting off when pasted from.

                            I'll try one more article from my computer and then run a few tests from my iPhone

                            "NDSU is a very good football team," head coach Mark Farley said. "They've always had a solid defense and have been a consistent program.

                            • Senior Daurice Fountain has put up monster numbers in his final season at UNI. The 6-foot-1 receiver has hauled in five touchdowns this season, with 625 yards receiving.

                            • The 10 sacks were one shy of UNI's single-game record, while the number is tied for the most in the FCS this season since Eastern Washington recorded 10 quarterback take downs against Fordham on Sept. 16.
                            • Neal's 3.5 sacks against YSU is tied for third most in one game this season by any FCS player and ranks first for MVFC players
                            • The 6.5 sacks this season is tied for 12th overall in the FCS and tops the MVFC.

                                Whatever you did seems to have fixed the issue on Chrome from a Windows 7 based work PC

                                I'll try a few tests from my iPhone. Prior to iPhone rolling out their screen record feature I couldn't properly communicate the issue I was running into. Hopefully having the video helped show what I was talkinga bout.
