The More You Know: Fanshots versus Fanposts

New, comments

Just a quick little Field Gulls public service announcement.

There's an awful lot of user-generated content on the blog these days. That's good! Unfortunately, this means things tend to get buried quickly before a proper discussion can be had. That's bad.

To deal with this, we ask you to determine which category your content falls under: fanposts or fanshots. Here's the general rule of thumb: A fanpost is for longer analysis and nuanced discussion. A fanshot is for links, quotes, pictures, and other things that don't quite warrant a few paragraphs of text.

If you can help us with this, both useful links/quotes and good discussion/analysis can stay on the sidebar longer and generate the views and comments they deserve.

Thanks!
