    Exclamation BG Overdrive Modification

    As a general heads up ...

    We have modified the home page module for BG Overdrive.

    [For those not familiar with this feature, please click here for a full overview.]

    The home page module features the most recent member posts (3 displayed at present) you have voted for inclusion in the site's group blog. Previously the RSS feed showed only a teaser of the post's text. As of today it also now displays both the user name of the author (hot-linked to his/her profile) and the date the post was published.

    Not to get preachy, but while we're on the subject the truth is we think we're just scratching the surface with BG Overdrive. As we continue to grow and become more active as a community, we envision the blog updating on a regular basis. Several times a day, eventually. Given the required high quality of the posts found there (else they would not have been voted in), BG Overdrive has the potential to become a daily "must see" stop for serious Redskins fans and, dare we say it ... anyone, be they fan, media, etc., who wants a quality, well-written, thoughtful fans-eye view of what is going on in the Redskins universe.

    Just food for thought.

    Also, as a quick reminder, while we have yet to formalize this, given we track the number of posts each BGO member gets published to the blog (number is tracked and displayed below member's user name and avatar in every post), we will be rewarding those who get published the most ... BGO gear, premium memberships, special avatar, that kind of thing. The writing and recognition themselves are certainly rewards, but we also recognize there's a certain amount of challenge (read: fun) associated with being The Man.

    Okay so it was a little preachy ... but still.

    Thank you to one and all who have contributed to and participated in getting this unique feature off the ground, and here's to unlimited horizons.

    Hail.

    I've noticed this feature must be broken, because I have zero Overdrive posts.

    Or as we say in Alaska, "If you're not the lead dog, the scenery never changes."
