New and have no idea how to find anything.  Will just watch until I learn.  Might be too old to learn how to follow all this info.

This is the Gameday Thread:

http://www.wnff.net/index.php?board=46.0

If you can't find it, you can refer to the aforementioned thread before/during every game.

PS   There are some threads you'll be better off not finding.     :)

this took me a while to learn, but click on the nationals logo in the top right hand corner of the site, it will load your unread threads.  You can then easily view what interests you (and mark everything else as read)

The fact this site includes a "mark all threads as read" mechanism makes things more manageable.

New here so still trying to learn to navigate around.  So many topics.  Trying to see area where comments are made on current days games.  Looks like this will be a worthwhile spot.
every game has a game day thread, so we isolate those in a separate part of the main "Clubhouse" board.  Look at the top of the Clubhouse and there's a link to the game day thread section.

If it is a general baseball topic not specific to the Nats, it is in the "Out of Town Scoreboard" section. Not a great name for it.  That is also were we have a thread for posts about former Nats.  "The Farm" is about minor league news.  In The Farm, there are threads for most of the major prospects linked through one thread at the top, the "follow the prospects" master thread. 

for non-baseball stuff, the threads are in the Red Loft section.

Hey y'all! I'm Brooke, a transplant from upstate NY currently living in Burke VA. My husband and I grew up both liking baseball, and after moving to the DC area in 2011, we became quick Nats fans. We've been season ticket holders since 2013. We've welcomed two babies since then, Emilia Harper (2015) and Reagan Elizabeth (2018). The girls are now unwilling Nationals fans, also.

If you're looking for some great seats in LF corner or the outfield, let me know! We're selling off as many tickets as possible this season because we found it too hard to make it out a ton of games last year with the two littles. Willing to take a loss up front if that means I'm not stressing about getting rid of games weekly during the season. I posted up in the "tickets for sale" thread, too.

And eventually they'll be among the hip young adults hanging at the bar in LF.

No wait, that's not the encouragement Brooke wants, is it.

Welcome, Brooke! Give it a couple years, those girls will love spending summers at the ballpark!

Greeting WNFF...Long time lurker here but finally made the leap to member.  Been a baseball fan my whole life, grew up an O's fan just outside of DC (Cal was my hero), my dad used to be a Senators usher at Griffith Stadium, became a Nats fan when they moved here, became a HUGE Nats fan as my son got older and fell in love with baseball and #34, and went all in a several years ago as a Nats season tix holder.  Been enjoying the ride (minus the game 5 loses...)  Anyway, Cheers!

Welcome Brooke, Rugby and any other recent new members to this Natastic community.

Been a while since I've even looked at this thread. I wasn't sure if I had even introduced myself way back whenever I joined (which was 21 Mar 2012). My intro post is #1881 posted 21 Mar 2012 approx 04:27 pm. Since that post I'm not as much of an O's fan as I was then. I barely know any of their players anymore. Well since whatshisname left and finally signed with the Padres.  :hysterical:

Oh BTW for those who are interested I am the one who has been keeping up with the "Season Series Tracker" posts for the last couple of years. It is a fun little stats type post that was started by someone else some years back and I adopted it one year when it appeared to be abandoned. Those posts are posted during the regular season (and the occasional post-season) and track the individual series as the season goes along. It gets updated upon the completion of each series, not after each game. Those postponed and rescheduled games get things a bit confusing and out of order for a little bit but things work out at the end of the season.

Should be super easy. They haven't made any moves. :)
