There are two types of postings you can do on this blog. One is a Fanpost and the other is a Fanshot.
A Fanpost: When you have some analysis, detailed story, report of some type, or a subject that is not already being shared on BTSC. These posts are what you would call an article. It's not just some random thought you just had and felt you'd just share it. Like: man Bruce Arians makes me mad. Then ramble enough to get the 75 words. Then minutes later write that we should not have let Willie Parker get away and fill the post with fluff to get to 75 words.
A Fanshot: This is where you put those brief things. If you want to share a quote, link, video, picture or anything like that with a short paragraph you would do a fanshot.
Comments: These are the comments we make in reference to the posts that are out. If you are feeling you have to express yourself in a paragraph find a post that is talking about the subject and express it there. This makes sure that the list of posts to the right isn't full of comments that are already discussed in Fanposts.
Let's give an example of why this is done this way. If I come in and want to see info on Charlie Batch, I can go to a game recap. If 5 people came in venting about Arians and 5 people came in venting about Tomlin wearing all black, you'll look to the right and see a bunch of garbage posts and nothing about the game. You would have to dig to find anything.
If you wanted to vent about Arians, then you could easily do that in a game recap thread. As a matter of fact those recap threads can hold various comments about different subjects. Then you don't have to click create fanpost and take up room with a comment that may have even been covered in another post.
I don't know if I'm rambling or if I'm even being coherent, but this gives a launching place for discussion on this.
