Football is back!!!
It is hard to believe, and some might still struggle with it, but NFL football is back!
It wasn’t always certain there would be a return of America’s favorite game, but here we are, preparing for the Thursday Night Football kickoff game between the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs and the visiting Houston Texans.
This will be the first NFL game of the 2020 season, and also the first game with our new commenting system. While improvements have been made, and they aren’t done with those improvements, just wanted to put a message here from NFL Manager Jeanna Thomas about the system:
Here are a few features that you might want to include in game day thread articles, to help your community enjoy the game day threads more:
If you change the ‘Sort By’ option to “Oldest,” you can read all the comments in chronological order, and the comment box moves to the bottom. If you leave it as “Newest”, the latest comments will appear at the top.
If you’re using a computer, you can move down the comments using C, and move back up using shift-C by clicking once inside the comments area. This can also be used to ‘load more’ comments.
Under the ‘My Profile’ tab, you can keep track of replies to your comments, and also sign up for email notifications of replies
If you want to auto-show all images/GIFs/Tweets, you can opt into this under My Profile – Preferences
As always, we’re continuing to improve the system, and will be watching how everyone is using it on game days – and if you or your community have suggestions on how we can further improve the game day thread experience, we’d love for you/them to join our commenting feedback group: https://forms.gle/2FTSCHRgnggxH6SR6 or you can email email@example.com.
For those wondering, you can enjoy some lively commentary with the best Steelers fans across the globe in the open thread for all BTSC members in the comment section below. Let’s remember to keep it clean, respect everyone’s thoughts and ideas, and ultimately remember we’re all here for the same reason—to root for the Steelers!
If you don’t want to hear Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth babble on about how great Kansas City is, you can always watch the game on mute and listen to some of our great Steelers podcasts. Check out the playlist below:
So enjoy the game and be sure to follow BTSC for all the latest news surrounding the team throughout the game and afterwards!
HERE WE GO STEELERS!
