    Hey Brad,

    I just wanted to let you know that Bleacher Report has launched out of beta with an updated look and feel and some great new features. Check out the "Game On" link in the header to find out more.

    Next week we'll be launching the site to the world with some public announcements—and it'd be great to get a contribution from you between now and Tuesday to make Bleacher Report's launch a success.

    Let me know if you need any help with ideas or have questions. Have a great weekend Brad!

    Don't trip, son. It looks like we were editing at the same time. I imagine I was just fixing the font from the original version, and in doing so overrode your substantive edit. I'll take care of it later today.

    In the meantime, we do have a "revert" option on the history page, which you can use to restore an prior edit you feel is superior to the present version, rather than relying on an admin to do it for you.

    It's also important to watch your tone when posting on the internet, as things which sound normal when spoken may take on a different connotation when stripped of the contextual signifiers of oral communication, and cause some people to take umbrage at your remarks.

    Brad thanks for the advice and new teaser. Any help is appreciated, as I'm going into post secondary education as a writer, and am using this a tool not only to be heard, but to hone my skills.

    Thanks again and feel free to leave feedback or revisions at any time.

    Hey Brad,
    I think what you said on my article on LeBron is absolutely right. All I really wanted to say is that LeBron has the potential to become the next Jordan, but I guess you have made some strong points too. Nevertheless, thank you for the comment.

    Hey Brad,

    Nothing was wrong with your headline at all -- just a stylistic thing. I thought that readers would get the play on words without the "(s)", and I added the "in D.C." to add a little more specificity and to help with getting picked up by news aggregators and search engines. Nit-picky stuff on my part to be sure, but clarity and specificity in the headline is often one of the most important ways that readers are drawn in to an article. Let me know if you have any more questions.

    Best,
    Mike

    Thanks for the add, Brad. I lived in Asheville for the last 4 years, and now I live in Columbia, so your article was good to read. I had tix to the game but couldn't make it. Looking forward to more stuff...
