A big change is coming to Bluebird Banter and all SB Nation sites. We are calling it SB Nation United (I suggested we call it Fred, it was a close vote).
I know change is scary (trust me I really know on this one), but SB has to continue to grow and change or it will stagnate. We want to continue to keep improving the look and performance of our sites. Give a chance, you'll love it.
Things will look different, but the all things you like about the site will still be here. Commenting won't change. There will still be Fan Posts and Fan Shots. We'll still be doing Game Threads. Your humble hosts will still be here, maybe just slightly more confused as we try to get used to all the new bells and whistles we get to play with.
Some of the main points:
- SB Nation United is going to make our sites load faster and run better meaning you can get to the content you want faster.
- SB Nation United is going to make sure that you're seeing the best and brightest content up front with our flexible layout, modern design and reduction of clutter.
- SB Nation United is going to make the experience on our sites run seamlessly from every platform, whether mobile, tablet or computer. No matter where you are, the experience will not change.
- SB Nation United will not take away or change any of the community elements you love like FanPosts and FanShots and GameThreads.
When will it go live? At the moment we are in the final stages of Beta testing. Presuming nothing serious pops up, one morning in the next couple of weeks we'll wake up and it will be here, right in this very spot.
What will it look like? I'll put up some screen shots after the jump (unfortunately not BBB cover shots, but from other SB Nation blogs).
It is going to be great.
Or perhaps, the cover:
