Hey everyone. I’m Beth, and I oversee all of our NCAA communities.

This Thursday will be a big day for our community: we’re moving our comments to a brand new platform, developed especially for SB Nation. A select few of our NCAA communities will be moving to the new platform, and I’m excited about the change.

Some of you may already be familiar with this new platform as it rolled out to our NFL communities last year and to many of our soccer sites and our NHL and NBA communities this year. Over 30 updates to the platform have been released since then, each bringing new features for SB Nation communities specifically, and changes to the user experience based on community member feedback. It’s a very different platform today than it was last year, and I can’t wait to show you.

Top 10 potential one-and-dones to watch this college men's basketball season

  Top 10 potential one-and-dones to watch this college men's basketball season There are a ton of talented players entering their first year of college basketball and a handful are already projected as one-and-dones and high draft picks for the 2022 NBA draft. This is significantly different from last year as NBA scouts and front office executives have already been hitting the road attending practices and getting a first look at some of the top talent coming in. Here’s a look at 10 potential one-and-done players (and a few extra) to keep an eye on this upcoming college basketball season. © Provided by Yahoo!

Why this change? We’ve been using the same commenting platform for over a decade and it’s time for an upgrade. The old system is brittle, and prone to outages. It’s not built for the modern web, and even just maintaining it gets tougher every year.

Nobody likes change, but this is a necessary one, and it brings real improvements that’ll make our whole commenting experience better.

In the new system, you’ll see features that we’ve wanted to add for years, including:

  • Easier embeds (just paste the Twitter/YouTube link)
  • Easier rich text shortcuts (control-B for Bold, control-I for italics)
  • Email notifications when someone replies to you
  • See who’s Rec’d your comments
  • Better flagging options and strong anti-abuse controls
  • A GIF library for easy image posting
  • The ability to mute commenters you don’t want to see
  • Easily find the most Rec’d comments

Plus a whole host of features that we’ve kept because they make our communities special, such as new comment highlighting, color changes with high Rec counts, Z key scrolling, external image embeds, sarcasm font, and much more.

This platform has been built specifically for SB Nation communities and, for the first time, we now have a team dedicated to constantly evolving and improving our commenting tools.

I know that new things take a bit of time to get used to — I ask only that you give it a chance, try it on a few articles, and then tell us honestly what you think. This is a permanent work in progress — we will continue to evolve the tools over the coming months and years, to give you the tools and platform you deserve. In fact, we have already added dozens of new features based on feedback from our audiences since our initial launch on NFL communities last year. You can help make it better by giving us your feedback in the comments or emailing coralsupport@voxmedia.com

Some important information about the change: your old comments are being saved and will be returned to the pages in the future, but for now, stories won’t contain comments posted prior to the changeover. So please be mindful that any discussions happening at the time the switch is flipped will be interrupted.

Your comment history will now be located under the My Profile tab at the top of the comments (not the top of the page), which is also where your comments archive will be restored when we bring them back.

The new platform will go live on Duke Basketball Report beginning Thursday afternoon. You can use the same login as always.

Thanks as always for being here. Now let’s talk.

NBA Power Rankings: Stephen Curry shoots Warriors into top spot .
The Warriors have taken advantage of a soft schedule to get off to a fast start. 1. Warriors (9-1, Last Week No. 3). Winners of six in a row and with the best net rating in the NBA (via Cleaning the Glass), the Warriors don’t just look good; they look like themselves again. Are they contenders? Not sold on that, yet. The Warriors have had one of the two easiest schedules in the league so far, plus we need to see how Klay Thomson looks when he gets back on the court. Are the Warriors Stephen Curry for MVP good? Yes. It’s early, but Curry has to be near the top of the MVP conversation so far.
