The comments are changing today

Andrew Vazzano, SNY.tv

We’ll be launching a new commenting system and social media tools across the SNY.TV network of sites today, which includes The Knicks Blog.

In a partnership with Livefyre, our commenting system will be overhauled, while adding new tools to better track the pulse of sports social networks, including players, beat writers and official team accounts. From chat rooms to live blogs to social media streams, these new additions will better connect you to your favorite sports teams and our writers to the 24/7 news cycle.

What’s different? You will now be able to log into our comments using an SNY, Facebook or Twitter account. This will help the conversation stay on topic and let the best discussions rise to the top and enrich the reading experience. This will also include a consistent commenting policy that will be applied to all team sites with better, stricter moderation tools.

To start commenting, hit the comments section and click “Sign In” (on the left, above the comment box). There, you will be prompted to sign in with either your Twitter, Facebook or SNY account. If you don’t have a Twitter or Facebook account, click “Login with SNY.tv” to create a new account, fill out the form, supply a nickname and you’ll be in!

We’re excited to take this first step in upgrading your experience and I hope you’ll enjoy what’s to come…

Any questions or concerns? Please email me: AVazzano@sny.tv

This site is another example of money talking over the preference of the users.

looking at last night game and idk why the coach doesn't apply the PnR to the offense. Melo & Stat played it well.

there should be a thread on this and a break down with a video.

As MELO2penplaza I prompted Admin to change to this format. When they get the kinks worked out it will be light years better than Discus

Where is the dashboard or do we have to have a facebook or twitter account to have an avatar?

This is one of those "feel good" formats. Only likes and no down-dings.

I really wonder if the game thread will work out with this format

@lobcity  I think Melo finally "gets it." They way he played last night is the only way for the Knicks to win. If Melo sticks to that type leadership....he will be MVP if the Knicks do a 180.

Melo did it last season. He should have gotten it

then. The coach needs to keep reminding him.
