SB Nation United, and a New RaptorsHQ Coming Soon!


So remember the new RaptorsHQ logo we unveiled recently?

That was just a snack but coming soon, is the full meal deal, and we wanted to give you guys some more information in preparation for it.

After the jump, some screenshots of what's to come, as well as some more info on the big changes ahead...

Let's start by saying that RaptorsHQ, as well as the other blogs in the SB Nation network, are going to look very different.

But to what end?

Well, a quick primer:

  • SB Nation United is going to make our sites load faster and run better meaning you can get to the content you want faster.
  • SB Nation United is going to make sure that you're seeing the best and brightest content up front with our flexible layout, modern design and reduction of clutter.
  • SB Nation United is going to make the experience on our sites run seamlessly from every platform, whether mobile, tablet or computer. No matter where you are, the experience will not change.
  • SB Nation United will not take away or change any of the community elements you love like FanPosts and FanShots and GameThreads.

Those are the basics.

As mentioned above though, the site will look, and likely act quite differently, and no doubt this will be a major adjustment for all of us. The site won't have a typical blog layout where all posts look the same and are in reverse chronological order. And you will have to click through to read posts in their entirety.

But we're very excited about the changes, which will allow us more flexibility, the ability to group related contented together in a more seamless fashion, and add more feature content. The site will also look a lot prettier, with a "cover" displaying the top news of the moment.

Most importantly, you'll continue to get the web's most thorough coverage of the Raptors from the same crew that's been bringing it to you for the last several years.

So take a look at some of the sample screenshots below (none of the new HQ unfortunately), and give us your early take as we wait in eager anticipation of the changes to come.
