Hey guys- as you may have noticed, I've added a new format for Clipper blog entries being shown on the front page. There is brand new way to have blogs show up on the front page. Previously Jamfan & other CTB bloggers would have to use a special admin interface to post their front page blogs. The new method involves simply placing your new blog in the Clippers Blog forum.

There are a few requirements and guidelines, however, to post a new blog (i.e. post a new topic in the blog forum). They are as follows:

-the author must have a reputation score of +3 or higher -the blog must contain at least 500 words and be original (not copied and pasted from elsewhere) -the blog should be clear of spelling/grammatical errors, and be split into multiple paragraphs -the blog should contain at least one relevant image/photo; note that if you spell out player names completely in the topic title, an image will be auto-selected for you if you don't manually upload one

And that is pretty much it. The growing CTB community and myself personally look forward to reading more interesting/though-provoking blogs from the top posters as well as new contributors as well.

Note that occasionally moderators or myself may deem specific posts deserving of being front-page featured, and move the post into the blog forum as a standalone topic. In fact, to get things started, I've done just that for some posts from Agent0, NUMB3RFIFTY, and Amnesty_David_Stern. Great posts there guys!

Thanks and please let me know if you have any feedback/suggestions!

Great addition! I guess a great team needs a great forum. So yeah lets all appreciate David's effort, I hope this website grows more and becomes more profitable for you David. BTW what happened to JamFan? Haven't seen him post anything

Thanks Freakeyy! As for Jamfan- I've just PM'ed him and hopefully I'll hear back. He probably has been busy or been on vacation.

And a special thanks to ClippyClip for the graphic CTB will be using as the default avatar. If you have a front-page blog, LTB will display that default avatar if you do not have one.

Repped High Quality Post

Thanks David,

I have been a long time reader on here and started posting I think earlier this year. This is great, I've really liked this forum and how you guys run it. You guys are really on top of keeping things respectful, and the majority of the posters are thought provoking on a constant basis. I have written papers in school (yeah I'm the old guy going back to school) on my thoughts on different aspects of sports; primarily MMA, Football, and Basketball. Having the opportunity to post similar things on here and getting feedback from other Clipper fans would be great and I appreciate the opportunity (It's always nice to get feedback from others that I feel know their stuff on the subject).

Thanks again for all the great work.
