The new DepressedFan.com has a few bells and whistles that I don't think I've done a very good job of explaining. The biggest change is the ability for you guys to sign in, upload avatars (user pictures) and track and follow your activity on profile pages.
Just to be clear, registration is not mandatory. If you don't want to do it, you don't have to. You can still comment exactly the same way you used to. I won't share your e-mail address with anyone if you do register, it's only required because a confirmation e-mail will be sent to you with a link to click to confirm your account.
If you have an account, once you sign in it should last for a day or two. If your cookie runs out there are Sign In links at the top of the page and also right above the comment form on every entry. You can edit your profile any time by clicking "Edit Profile" in the header, that's how you add a profile picture, or change the picture if you get sick of it.
If you'd like to see what the profiles look like, here's mine
If you'd like to create your own, click here
When you create a profile on this site, it will be good on all of the blogs in the Blogs By Fans network which have the new software enabled.
Thanks for your time and as always, thanks for being part of the community here at Depressed Fan.
Brian./we now return to your previously scheduled Sixers coverage.
