SB Nation introduces a new and exciting sports internet publishing concept.
We all woke up this morning to a new UW Dawg Pound. Let me start off by saying that nobody likes or enjoys change...especially two days before one of the biggest games of the year but change is definitely upon us and once we sort it out it will be good...very good!
Most of us on this volunteer staff are spending today reading a few tutorials to understand exactly how all these new toys work. Hang with us over the next week while we work all the kinks out of it and get the site laid out in a more pleasing manner.
After spending some time fooling around with the back end of this puppy I think once we get it optimized you are really going to love it. The big picture of what this new publishing concept will do is tell the overall story better by linking everything we do together on a site and network wide basis.
Be patient though...give us a little time to tinker with it and analyze what other sites are doing to leverage the technology. Expect a number of format changes over the next couple of days as we experiment with what everyone thinks is best.
One thing everyone is asking for is our old links and we are trying to figure out a way to activate those link widgets. The info is still there so we just need to figure out how to get it displayed in the new publishing format. I notice that our twitter is active so there must be a way to do that.
One thing I would like all of you to do is leave is to comment on what you like, don't like, and most importantly what you would like to see. The Dawg Pound is run by its membership...so chime in, and we will see what changes ,and improvements makes sense.
As for the logo...I know the majority of you folks don't like it. We will get it changed down the road but as you can see it isn't a huge priority for SBN right now because this roll is huge. IF they start taking special orders they just can't get everything done...so be patient on that...we are first in line when they start doing it.
P.S.: If you haven't taken the time to view the intro video, giving you the tour of everything SB Nation United has to offer, I highly recommend that you do that!
