SITE NEWS: The 2009 NFL Draft On BRB

As you may or may not know, there's some draft thing this weekend. Seeing as how you're reading this, you may be interested in hanging out around these parts as the proceedings get underway on Saturday at 3 p.m. CST. Accommodating dorks that we are, we'll be open for business throughout the weekend. Here's the plan:

-An open thread, similar to what we do on game days during the season, will post to the main page at 8 a.m. CST on Saturday. That thread will be live until your Houston Texans go on the clock/make a pick/make a move which, if they stay at No. 15, would occur around 5:15 p.m. CST. If the open thread gets loaded with comments, we'll start more open threads as necessary.

-After the Texans do whatever it is they're going to do in Round One, we'll have a separate entry proclaiming a trade, or a "________ Is The Newest Texan!" post. After the Texans make their move, we'll then post another open thread to take us through the next Texans move. Thus, there should be separate posts for each Texans selection or trade, as well as a bevy of open threads in between them.

-Now that we've upgraded platforms on SB Nation, the Comments refresh automatically. In other words, if you're in a post or thread, you'll be notified (in real time) in the lower right hand corner of your screen whenever a new comment posts. This should essentially make each thread a running conversation. Make sure to use the "Reply" links and "Z" key (which takes you to the new comments you haven't read yet) judiciously to stay up to speed as the Comments update.

-Finally, and most importantly, I'll repeat our axiom here at BRB: This site is what it is because of all of you. You keep it interesting. You keep it running. So let your opinions be known this weekend. Love a pick another team made? Post a comment. Hate a pick? Post a comment. Wondering what the Texans were thinking with that second-round selection? Post a comment. If you haven't registered as a user here yet, do it! Join the community. We'd love to have you.

That's about it, folks. We'll be rocking it through the seventh round on Sunday night; hope to see you here. Questions? Let us know in the Comments below.
