As of this morning, Windy City Gridiron had 12,609 members and countless other readers that are just lurking. While we value everyone that stops by to see what we're up to, we'd like to recognize those members that have been taking advantage of WCG to the fullest.
If you're not aware, we have a Fanpost section that any WCG member can utilize. Do you have an idea for an article that hasn't been touched on by one of our writers? Then write it yourself! Did you just write a 500 word response to someone in the comment section? That probably could have been shared as a Fanpost. Do you feel like sharing your top 100 reasons the Bears should bring back Rex Grossman? Fanpost it!
If you aren't sure where the Fanpost section is, it's found on the right side of the WCG home page if you are viewing on a computer of some sort. You just have to scroll down a little bit to find it. If you view via mobile, you have to click on Fanposts link that is near the top of the page.
Here are the Top 10 Fanposters in 2014 and their number of Fanposts.

Congrats to BloggerX, your peppermint is in the mail.
Did you know we also have a Fanshot section? What's a Fanshot you may ask... Well... Let's say you find an interesting article on the web that Spongie somehow missed while compiling the Den. Yeah, I know, unlikely, but it has happened on occasion. You can share the link in the Fanpost section for all of WCG to see. You can also pass along an interesting Tweet in the fanpost section, or a Bears related picture or video.
Here are the top Fanshotters on WCG for 2014.
Dane Noble 7

OK, Dane receives no peppermints for his Fanshotting prowess.
Just in case you are having trouble finding the Fanshot section on your desktop of laptop, it's just a touch below the Fanpost section. For you mobile viewers, you have to click on the link that is right next to the Fanpost link.
Now for the moment you've all been waiting for...
