Welcome to the new SB Nation! We're thrilled that you've stopped in to view the most ambitious project we've ever embarked upon. Re-engineering over 300 sites is not easy but everything we did, we did to make your experience on our sites the best it can possibly be. Below are a number of frequently asked questions about our new look and feel. We also have an introduction video and a downloadable PDF with more details. We want to make sure that you get to know and love your new communities as quickly and as easily as possible.
One quick note: this is merely the first day of SB Nation United and we like to think of it as a live beta. We're going to be working hard behind the scenes to be constantly improving it. So if you notice anything amiss or have suggestions for improvement, please email email@example.com.
SB Nation United FAQs
- Whoa, this page looks different. Is SB Nation changing the way they cover teams and sports?
SB Nation is not changing the way we cover sports. We're going to remain the place for passionate, intense and fan-driven coverage of your favorite teams and sports. This new look is designed to load faster, be more versatile on all platforms and give you the most important news and analysis in an easy to digest and prettier package.
- How do I sign up for a new account?
Simply click on the 'Sign up' link in the upper right hand corner of your favorite SB Nation community. Your username will work not only at all of SB Nation's sports sites, but also Vox Media's leading consumer tech destination, The Verge, and the forthcoming gaming-focused destination, Polygon. Signing up for an account allows you to comment on articles, track new comments and easily follow updates from your favorite SB Nation sites across all sports and leagues.
- If I had an account, where do I go to log in? Is the process still the same?
The process remains exactly the same. You should be able to login the same exact way you used to and you'll still have the same username and password as before. Logging in using your Facebook or Yahoo account will also work the same.
- Where do I go to comment? Will the commenting still work the same? (z-button, etc.?)
Commenting has changed to use the same system as SBNation.com and the team sites. Within an article, press C to tab to new comments, Shift-C to tab backwards, X to mark as read, and Shift-A to mark all read. The best: Z will simultaneously mark and tab forward, and R will reply to the comment that has focus.
- If I notice problems with the new site not working properly, what do I do?
Email firstname.lastname@example.org. We have a very friendly and helpful product support staff that is on call 24/7 and can address your issue. You might not hear back immediately but they are always there in the background waiting to help.
Attached to this post is further information but these FAQs as well as the video will get you cruising around the sites in no time.
