One of the most common gripes from regulars around here is whether a post should be made a FanShot or a FanPost. Many, myself included, believe a short post containing a link to another article, or possibly a simple question to stimulate conversation, should be posted in the FanShot section. I started wondering why people tend to ignore FanShots (I am guilty of this) and then it hit me.
When you click on an article/post, regardless if it is a FanShot or a FanPost, the FanShot browsing pane is removed from the right-hand side of the page.
When I am perusing the posts of fellow Phinsiders, I jump from one FanPost to another (depending on subject content and # of replies), but I do this via the right-side browsing pane. I never even see FanShots once I've gone beyond the home page. I don't know if Matty has the ability to change this or if this is strictly an SB Nation thing, but it should be looked into. FanShots deserve love too! (Especially since I just posted one lol)
