When I launched Defending Big D nearly two years ago I did so with the dream that this site would become a thriving community of Dallas Stars fans, a community in which fans could interact in a knowledgeable and friendly environment. I also sought to provide our readers with a fresh, comprehensive and entertaining view on the Stars and I like to think we've accomplished that feat while at the same time working to improve our product every day.
As we start a new and promising Dallas Stars season, our site here is welcoming more and more readers and members daily.
So if you're an old-timer or a brand new reader, chime in the comments below. Let us know where you hail from and how you became a Dallas Stars fan. If you've been lurking, feel free to take a moment to become a member and let us know you're here.
Never hesitate to comment on a thread or story. This isn't about commenting on the story itself, it's about engaging in conversation and debate with fellow Stars fans. SB Nation has the most advanced commenting technology in sports websites, we'd be amiss not to take advantage.
Also, FanPosts and FanShots are your way of sharing your thoughts on the team. If you have something to say or breaking news happens, we won't hesitate to promote it to the main page. In fact, our very own Brad Gardner got my attention by writing a number of great FanPosts last spring.
If you didn't know, Defending Big D is also on Facebook. Very soon we are going to start having weekly features on our Facebook page, so be sure to "Like" us if you haven't already. It's also a great way to keep up with all over the content we post throughout the day.
For those new to the site, after the jump I've included a few important links:
