    Announcement KO.com: Ushering in a new era + FORTNIGHTLY BLOG IDEA

    To all posters, new, old, and especially all of you guests that lurk about.

    The site's moderators have been discussing how the Knicks' improvement will be the harness for the site's improvement. As the Knicks have now put together their most experienced and rounded squad since the late 90s, the excitement and anticipation generated by this will hopefully propel KO.com in to its zenith year, after nearly 10 years of operation.

    As many of you are aware, Bleacher Report recently referred to the site as The Official Knicks Forum.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Huge exposure for KO. With the momentum on our side, it's only human/clever to be opportunistic in times like these.

    ☆ The purpose of this thread is to encourage all who use the site to bring in some new faces. Whether it be scouting, recruiting or whatever,

    I, on occasion, check out PSD's Knicks board to bring in any new articles they have that we don't, to keep us up to date. I also take the opportunity to talk smack to some of the tools on there too.

    After scouting their posters, I've already invited one individual, named DLeethal (as in David Lee), who is a good poster. I'm just about to send him the link for the site per his request, and think it can only be a good idea for us to usher him in nicely, and see if he'll bring along some fellow mutineers.

    Get in to it, gents.

    We have the credentials here on KO to bring it even more so to the forefront of online Knick fandom. Far less strict and far more fun. And, Rady has something up his sleeve for all of you, that will remain a secret until that time.

    This thread isn't a plea for more contributors, it's us doing these potential contributors a favour, by showing them how good being a Knicks fan can be, and how we as a whole can elevate any individual's fandom.

    If you know anyone, can entice anyone, whatever.

    Do it for their sake, and in turn, do it for knicksonline.com.


    There's now also talk of a fortnightly blog written by a KO member. If it gains enough popularity, it can be changed to a weekly blog.

    Please tell us your thoughts on the idea.

    Honestly everyone I talk to here in Canada is a raptor's fan. I even approached some guys that were wearing Knicks gear. One guy had a David Lee Jersey so i figured he HAD to be a knicks fan. Nope, a raptors fan that found a Lee jersey for $20.

    Another guy wearing a knicks summer league jersey, same ****ing bull****.

    Like what the hell is wrong with people, wearing other teams gear like that? not reppin your team is a pile of **** if you ask me.

    Of course, they could be knicks fans but just trying to deflect the heat that you get when you tell anyone in Canada your a Knicks fan.

    ^

    Haha..... Well, more power to you, Ponder. Hopefully we can find some new recruits that don't go for the Craptors. After getting Lowry for nothing, the Craps could have a decent season this year. Maybe even contest for 8th.

    I think it would be tough to find people in Canada because they only know hockey up there.

    I'm coming to the reality that Rockets fans, at least the ones on Clutchfans.net, don't know much about basketball........ Lin plays his first game after surgery, has a mediocre game at best...... His vertical and lateral movement aren't there, Russ Westbrook made some shots over him, committed a few turnovers, and now the fans are all piling on him...........

    I like the new Rockets team (I think they're going to surprise this season), but I miss the basketball discussion on this Knicks board.........

    The NHL is currently involved in a Lockout much like last season for the NBA. Players have fled all across Europe to play. I suspect that there will be more Canadian Basketball fans then ever this year.

    As a knicks fan they like to remind me that the raptors only playoff series win was against the Knicks. I like to remind them that is the only series they ever won.

    Personally I am not a big hockey fan and the lockout could go on forever and I would love it. It would mean more coverage for Basketball and football and less talking heads yammering on about Sidney Crosby and his bull****.

    Alright fellas, it's time for my 2:

    - our website looks like it's designed in the early 90s, which means it needs a serious graphics update. I know rady is currently working on the forums design, but if we want to make KO a key player, our site has to be redeveloped and redesigned.
    - we need regular beat writers, who'll cover all Knicks news on a daily basis, the latest news on our site come from the 2010 offseason...

    Seriously folk, more visitors on our site = more new posters. Besides, there are some minor things like sig size we need to take care of.

    You're right but these things cost time and money. If you want to turn Knicksonline from a community website into a full fledged Knicks resource and have regular writers that appeal to wide audiences that kinda stuff doesn't come free.

    This guys right this site is cool but it's not the best looking the Laker site I post at Lakernation from an aesthetic standpoint looks a lot better.

    But Ive actually told a few ppl about this site since most of my friends and half my family are Knicks fans. My older brother who's a Knicks fan actually signed up but I don't think he's ever posted.
