After a long while, we’re moving some stuff around here on VCI.
If you visited over the weekend there’s a good chance you found a site in flux with occasional downtime and shifting formats, but we’re pretty close to functional now.
So how does that make you feel?
According to that informal poll to the left, it’s pretty much split at this time, with just over half of you liking the change, almost half hating it and a few that could care less.
But if you DO care, here are a few notes about the new site design:
Here’s the new comment box at the bottom of every article.:
There are a few new features:
- Notify of (new follow up comments) you can set this to get email updates if someone responds to the thread, or set it to email if someone responds to your comment so they don’t get the last word.
- There’s been a big shift in comment formatting. You can now reply to comments inline, but this makes it harder to see what’s new. click ‘Sort by: newest’ at the bottom of the comment box to see the newest comments first.
- We’re still trying to figure out how to format comments based on their number of votes. In the meanwhile you can click ‘Sort by: most voted’ to see the highest rated comments at the top of the list.
As always your feedback is welcome.
The best thing about this site has always been the readers that leave commentary (that’s you!), so we’re curious to see how you feel about this new format including things that you like and things that bug you.
Leave your comments below and have an excellent week!
