Also, FanSided received some great news yesterday, as the network was acquired by Time Inc. Here are more details from co-founder Adam Best:

"Loyal Fans and Readers,When we founded FanSided, we were just two brothers/fans who felt our voices weren’t properly represented when it came to the teams and topics we loved. We believed that our fellow fans craved intelligent content crafted from their perspective. When you are a fan, a real die-hard fan of something, that is part of your identity. You simply cannot get enough info and, perhaps more importantly, insight around your favorite teams and topics. We wanted to create a brand of content unafraid of adopting the fan POV. We’ve always been unabashedly fanatic about the categories we cover, and we always will be. That is why FanSided was conceived: to side with the fans.As fans, you want passion, you want perspective, you want coverage that pokes, prods and projects. Perhaps above all else, you want to feel a part of the process. We’ve built a network of sites dedicated to serving fans in the spirit of candor, curiosity and community. We feel we’ve done so without losing sight of the professionalism previously established by more traditional publishing outlets.300+ sites, roughly 1,500+ contributors and millions and millions of readers later, FanSided officially joins the Time Inc. family. What does this mean for you? It means lots of great things ahead, but there are no immediate plans to change the way you currently access and use our FanSided sites. Our core team will be sticking around to ensure we deliver more coverage, better products and even higher quality to service you, the fan. Our longstanding partnership with Sports Illustrated will only grow. Strategically, we will be more ambitious in our effort to be the one-stop shop for the most fanatical of fans. Additionally, we’ll be a sibling brand to other iconic Time brands like Entertainment Weekly and People. Overall, this will add up to a bigger, better fan experience.We want to thank you for allowing us to go from being a bootstrapped company run by two brothers to one of Time’s iconic brands. It was your loyalty as fellow fans and readers that got us here, along with the hard work and ingenuity of the terrific group of FanSiders we’ve been fortunate enough to call our team. We promise you that we will continue to do everything we can to make your experiences as fans as fun and fruitful as possible.Thank you for reading,FanSided Founders Adam and Zach Best"

While this is great news for the network, the network is not going to change how we post. We’ll still be that great interactive network for all fans.
