Yeah, it doesn't get much better than Andray Blatche and G-Wiz getting their gangsta on, but I think this partnership has some potential:
Today we want to welcome some new members to our flourishing communities. SB Nation and our friends at Yahoo are partnering to give Yahoo Sports audiences one click access to our sites and content. In addition to being the largest sport property on the web, Yahoo Sports is known for some of the best general sports blogs including: Ball Don’t Lie, Puck Daddy, Dr. Saturday, Big League Stew and others.
Relevant pages of Yahoo Sports will now feature contextual links to specific SB Nation communities. Many other pages of Yahoo Sports will feature SB Nation content and links. The great news is that more sports fans will be introduced to SB Nation sites.
There are now close to 200 different sports communities for Yahoo users to discover. Each is led by bloggers who are first and foremost passionate fans. Part of what makes our network so special is that each SB Nation site has its own URL, name and colors as well as its own community guidelines and expectations. Some are more serious, some more irreverent, but they all share a common goal of nurturing strong and focused conversations around a common interest.
So what does this mean for you, the readers? Not a whole lot. We'll still link to and comment on content from sites just like we did before, regardless of what site the content comes from. The only thing that's changing is that we're getting a little more exposure.
Now, as to our new readers that are coming by way of Yahoo!, here's what you need to know...
Who are you guys? The quick answer is a few guys who enjoy discussing the highs and lows (mostly lows) of the Washington Wizards. Right now, the site editor and founder is on a little hiatus. He'll be back soon (and you'll see him floating around in the comments in the meantime) but until then we've got a three team crew that's holding down the fort. You can learn more about us here.
How long has this site been around for? Since December 2006.
So does that mean I should just leave now because you've come up with a bunch of witty inside jokes that I won't understand? Nope, the glossary should catch you up on everything you've missed. But there's a chance that some stuff has been overlooked. Don't ever feel scared to ask for clarifications on anything posted on the front page or in the comments.
Do you guys have any guidelines or can I just start saying whatever I want without reprecussion? On the whole, we're pretty laid back on things but we do have some Community Guidelines that we're not afraid to enforce when needed.
Are pop culture references frowned upon here? Goodness no.
Does that include Simpsons references? Absolutely. Dropping the occasional Simpsons reference will make you look S-M-R-T.
Is there anything else I should know? Oh, I'm sure there is, but I can't think of anymore ways to explain it to you in this Q&A format. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment or e-mail us. All of our e-mail addresses are there on the sidebar so you can get in contact with us over any questions/concerns/whatever that you may have.
