Introducing Players and Teams

Release #2 of 2009 is here in a big way, as I am happy to roll out the new Players and Teams functionality.

The players we write to and collect are one the most important aspects of this site. In the coming months, we'll look to expand the information available for players to better help you guys in your collecting endeavors. Therefore, I thought it would be really beneficial that we make it easier to find the players (and teams) and make the data for them in a more consistent format.

Since most of the upgrades we do are only for Premium member functionality, we decided to make the Players and Teams functionality open to all members with some features deprecated.

We added a new green tab at the top row called Players & Teams (replacing the Home button):

We have moved the Favorite Players functionality from Sigs By Mail to this new section.

Team Pages

We track each in the NBA, NHL, MLB, NFL (along with ABA & AFL) in our database going back to 1948. Each team now has their own upgrade team page (My Boston Celtics are shown below):

Browse for Players now have All Players

We decided that the pages where you can browse for players by first letter of the last name should have every player, not just the ones with successes.

Standardized Player Search Results

One thing that frustrated me was that you would see a player record show up differently depending on what part of the site you were on. I've standardized the information and added an important nice extra.

There is now a "Last Success" in search results. If the value appears in green, that means the player has a reported success within the past 30 days (as shown below):
