Lots of newcomers to the Gawker Media/Kinja world have questions about the different main blogs like Gawker or Deadspin (also called mainpages, gawker sites) and their sub-blogs or forums, so here's a guide to getting the much soughtafter posting privileges!

Each main blog has a general reader forum run by community moderators, so follow the provided links to learn more about how to post in these forums. The grey/black commenting system is the same as on the main page but because there are many more authors and far fewer comments, it's much easier to be followed by an author and have your comments appear black.

The main blogs also have smaller off shoot blogs about more specific topics. These generally have one contributor rather than a communal system (closed) but there's some really interesting stuff there and they're open for comments. You can access them via drop down menus from the main blogs they're associated with.

There are also a handful topic blogs that aren't directly associated with a main blog at the bottom of this list, posting guide included.
