Give the front page of the blog one more chance
« on: January 03, 2013, 07:53:40 AM »
The folks at SBNation heard the complaints and criticisms and other feedback and made adjustments.  So for all you who have decided to skip the front page and go directly to the forums, please give the front page one more chance.

if you still don't like it, fine, no problem, skip it and come here

if you like it better, great - and know that the developers are going to keep making tweaks to make it better and better as time goes by

cheers

the new version of the front page is a definite improvement.  not as good as the version before all the recent changes but the newest version is more user-friendly and I don't feel going there is a pain anymore. 

Pick 2 Draft 2014: Cleveland Cavs:
Starters:
Kyrie Irving, Kevin Martin, Luol Deng, Serge Ibaka, Nikola Vucevic.
Bench: Andray Blatche, Tyreke Evans, Corey Brewer, Kosta Koufos, Rodney Stuckey, Anthony Morrow, Reggie Evans

The new layout is a HUGE improvement. As somebody who does web development part-time I was baffled by the confusing layout they presented us in the first iteration. This one is much more intuitive. Well done.

I like it alot better than the last setup, definitely a step in the right direction. I like that the recent forum posts and fan posts are featured prominently on the right.

I also like that the front page is alot tidier and screen size is better used. Still some issues with it, but I definitely like it alot better than the old one.

Thumbs up!  ;)
Reclaiming the NBA Throne is easy.

All we need is a powerful beast that can soar up to the skies and lay waste on our enemies. One with potential to wreak havoc and strike fear. With such a mythical being, we can take back what is ours - with fire and blood.

I hear talk that such a beast is projected #1 overall in the 2014 draft.

Yuuuuuuuge improvement, still preferred the older version better but I'm guessing it wasn't generating the clicks. I'm happy to give SBNation the clicks for ad money if it means us continuing to get the quality writing it provides.
