After far too long, the newest version of Depressed Fan has finally taken flight. I'd say it's about 99% complete, so click around and enjoy.
The new commenting system is on this post, but it won't be used on all the posts. The main reason is that I can't pull out the most-recent comment and display it on the front page when using this system, and I think that's a pretty important feature of the new design. We'll use this system for Pressing Questions and game threads, to make it easier for readers to keep up with the threads.
Here's a quick and dirty look at what's changed, and why:
- Reading List - This list appears on every page, it should be pretty easy to find, it's always in red. Basically, when I see a story that interests me about the Sixers or hoops in general, I'll post the link there with a bit explanation. If you guys see anything worthwhile, you can e-mail it to me, send it to me via Twitter, or just leave it in the comments and I'll add it to the reading list. In general, the list is a good place to start if you're dying for Sixers content.
- Facebook - If you're on Facebook, make sure you like the new Depressed Fan page. facebook.com/DepressedFan. Once you like it, you'll get updates through Facebook whenever a post goes up. I also envision this page as a great way for people to share pictures/video from games, we'll use it to set up any field trips, etc.
- Schedule - Check out the full schedule here, it's pretty self-explanatory. Most important, the schedule will serve as your entrance to the new game capsule pages...
- Game Capsules - Here's a sample page. The idea here is a one-stop shop for all the coverage of the game, and a quick look at the rotation chart and advanced stats. If you're looking for trends, or just interested in game threads/previews, you can find everything you need here.
I hope you like it, let me know either way in the comments (and check the reading list for other discussion topics).
