Happy birthday to EHM The Blue Line!

The Blue Line is three years old!

Happy birthday to our site!  The Blue Line is now three years old, having been online since the 27th June 2004. It’s amazing how much our site has grown from just a little Geocities page into having its own domain and an ever-growing community. A lot of things have happened over the last three years; we’ve seen three versions of SI Games’ NHL:EHM, the temporary cessation of EHM’s development, the temporary merging of our site with Sortitoutsi.net and many, many different addons for all versions of EHM (by far the most comprehensive collection on the internet). We’d like to say...

New, improved Search feature

You will see on the Search Page that there’s a new option to “search topic title only”. Obviously this allows users to perform a search of topic titles only (rather than also searching through the text in each post in each topic)! This enables everyone to narrow down their searches, ensuring that you find only the most relevant topics according to your query. We recommend performing a topic search before posting a new thread requesting help on an EHM-related issue because it’s very possible that your question has already been asked (and answered). To perform a search, click on the icon located in...

Welcome to the TBL Moderating Team!

TBL is proud to announce the creation of the Moderating Team! We, the TBL Admins, have decided to appoint five users as Forum moderators. The reason that these five users were chosen was because of the big contributions they have all made to our community and the respect that they have from both their fellow users and the TBL Admins. So please welcome Batdad, Bruins72, CatchUp, Devils88 and Shadd666 to the TBL Moderating Team! The members of the Moderating Team have each been assigned a number of forums to moderate (see the list below). They will thus be responsible for helping...

Stanley Cup Final Wallpaper – ADM Style!

With the start of the Stanley Cup Final only five days away, there’s never been a better time to download CatchUp’s ADM Wallpaper and follow the the series’ progress in style on your desktop! For the remaining two teams in the Playoffs, CatchUp has snazzed-up the logos with a flame effect. It all looks very cool! If you have Windows XP you can even setup the wallpaper so that it will automatically update the series score after each game has been played! You find more information about downloading the wallpaper and how to have it automatically update here: http://www.ehmtheblueline.com/forums/vi … 3398#33398

New webmaster e-mail address

In case anyone needs to contact the TBL Admin Team by e-mail for whatever reason, we would like to make you all aware of a change of address. Our old address was webmaster@ehmtheblueline.com but this has recently run into issues meaning that we have not been able to receive e-mails for the past two or three months. Also, its spam filter was utterly useless! So now we’ve moved over to a gmail account. This will provide us with better spam protection and also it will continue to work even if the TBL server goes down (unlike our old address). So our new...

When uploading files to the server…

When uploading files to the server, please ensure that the file you upload does not have any spaces in its filename. If there are spaces in the file’s name then users will encounter problems when trying to download your file (it will not download with the correct file extension). Replace any spaces with either an underscore or a dash. For example: “North_American_Facepack.zip” and “North–American–Facepack.zip” are both acceptable filenames whereas “North American Facepack.zip” is unacceptable because it has spaces in it. I have added this note to the section of the site where users can upload their EHM addons.
