People fear change, they often don't like it and throw a fit about it. And people on the internet can really, really throw a fit about change, which is why I want to give you a heads up on some very big changes that are coming to the site very soon. We've given you a peek at our new logo, but that barely scratches the surface of a network-wide reformation we're calling SB Nation United. The picture above can give you a little bit of an idea of what our main page is going to look like (though picture it as blue and with a whole lot less Ohio St. coverage), though the new platform is going to let us use a bunch of different looks. It's also going to mean a redesign of our mobile site, which is going to be 10,000x better than what we have now.
In general, here's what you can expect:
- 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.
It's going to be different, but it's going to be vey cool and very exciting. If you want to get a good feel for the direction we're headed, check out The Verge, which runs on the same platform. We're really excited about it and though it may take some time to adjust, we're sure you'll grow to love it too. Hit the jump for some more sample images.
