The feedback boxes on the survey weren't big enough, so I'm going all out. Here are a few more feature ideas.
Pictures, gifs, screencaps of Lile's spreadsheets, Wonderbeard, etcetera.
Other SBN blogs do this, so I'm sure it's possible. Some types of stories lend themselves to this more than others, obviously. I doubt many users hunt through the old posts of various categories [stats especially], but plenty of the stuff in those old posts would still be relevant in later ones.
Steve Estep made an offer a few months ago relating to his radio show; call in and get a customized NHL94 signature/banner. The show was called off IIRC, but it gave me an idea. A member of the community (like Steve) donates the reward - customized banner, animated gif, skilled photoshop, what have you. The contest could be something simple, like a caption contest, or more elaborate (find the best 3second segment of this week's games to be made into a gif). I find that the hardest part of making a good gif/photoshop/whatever is always creativity, so getting the community involved could give great results.
