Several site notes from the Kings morning skate:
-LA Kings Insider will be undergoing a redesign that should take place at some point during the Stanley Cup Playoffs or early in the off-season. The change will be mostly aesthetic; there will be an updated skin and background, and each story will be accompanied by a picture. When we get closer to the update, I’m going to ask for Insider-submitted photos that would accompany particular articles. As for fundamental changes to the site, Insiders will soon have the ability to edit their posts, and we’re even tinkering with some kind of point system that will allow other Insiders to give a “+1” to posts that they particularly like.
-I totally dig all the interaction on the site and that Insiders seek out other Insiders to meet at games, before games and at TSC. Because I’ve only met a few of you and would love to get to know you guys better – and I feel many of you would like to get to know each other IRL, LOL – I’m planning on hosting a playoffs watch party during a Kings off-day in the first round of the playoffs. Would you attend? Would you mind coming to West LA or the South Bay on a weekday? Would you prefer a bar-type setting or a restaurant setting? We’d likely all get together to watch an early Western Conference game, schedule permitting.
-As for the moderation of those who distract from the general direction of LAKI conversation, I’m going to try to be a little quicker with my moderation trigger finger than in the past. Keep in mind that I don’t always catch everything immediately, and I generally only skim the game threads once or twice while the game is in progress. If you ever have any questions or would like to call something to my attention, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll do my best to respond as quickly as possible.
