Why FanShots Do Not Receive Enough Attention


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)

This is a FanPost and does not necessarily reflect the views of The Phinsider's writers or editors. It does reflect the views of this particular fan though, which is as important as the views of The Phinsider writers or editors.
