In the midst of all this draft excitement, I just did want to point out that overnight tonight is the night that The Phinsider joins the SB Nation 2.0 platform!!
To see what it looks like, if you haven't done so already, check out any of the MLB blogs or any of the 10 NFL blogs that have already been migrated over, such as Blogging the Boys or Big Cat Country, just to name a few.
With the change over, though, means downtime. The site will likely be down overnight tonight for about an hour or so while all our posts, comments, and diaries are migrated.
As far as new features go, there are many new aspects of these sites that I think you'll all enjoy. My favorite, as I've already said, will be the auto-refreshing comments. No longer will you have to click reload in a game thread, for example, to see the new comments. Instead, they will pop up in almost real time! And we will really take that feature for a test run on Saturday.
That's because Saturday should be a fun day here at The Phinsider, as I plan on being around for most, if not all, of the draft's first two rounds (and probably most of day two as well). So be sure to join in the conversation this weekend. It'll be a great way to kill some time before the 3 pm EDT start time on Saturday and definitely during that long wait from pick #1 to pick #32. Hopefully, it will be a fun and exciting day and not one filled with anger, a la last year's draft.
If you have any questions or concerns about the new site, be sure to leave your comment below and I'll try to address it as best I can. Or you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
