It's Bryan from Bleacher Report here.
There are two important announcements for me to make today.
First, you have probably noticed the new Team Pages that we just pushed to the site. As many of you know, we have really focused on building our team-by-team communities. The Featured Columnist program is a big step in that direction. This new design is another big one.
Second, you guys may have noticed that the new design did not incorporate our User Rankings for the teams.
This is because we are doing a huge (and awesome) revamping of the team rankings. We have received a TON of feedback from the community on what the current rankings do right, and what they do wrong.
Given all of this, we felt that it was necessary to hold off on incorporating user rankings into the new team pages until a new user rankings system is established.
As far as our best contributors are concerned, don't worry about "losing" all your progress to date. You won't. We still have all our records intact, and contributions that you make today will still help your forthcoming ranking.
I'll be writing a follow-up post soon with some information on how the new rankings will be better than the old ones.
