So this past Friday I made a ton of site changes and as we speak I am still writing code like some kind of evil demon to try and get all the new goodies up and running. As you should be noticing our site now runs a lot faster. The reason for this is the ‘backend’ that powers the site has been completely redone. This means you will get the same horror goodies but with even less loading time. Also you may have noticed the News page has been completely overhauled. It is only 50% complete so in the coming 3 or 4 days expect to see more improvements and tweaks as I complete it and start reworking the other pages on site as well.
Also as part of the new code rework a whole whack of new writers have come on board over the last few days and you should start seeing some interesting new writing from different perspectives. Some of those who have come on to write reviews, editorials and ramblings include Loudlon, Azathoth and Suspiria_89. All three have been positive contributors to our site over the last few years and I am very happy they have stepped up to take on the role of Site Contributor. More people have already offered to fill a role of Site Contributor so look for more new writers coming in the next week and of course if you would like to be a contributor simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject Site Contributor and outline why you want to be a contributor to our site.
The really big change for the site for those of you who like me are employed in a very hectic line of work is you can now get your fix on the road with our brand new mobile version of the site. To try it out pull out your BlackBerry, Iphone or other smart phone device and visit our site to see what our new Mobile Edition looks like. Its simple, slick and designed specifically to make reading our site on a mobile device super easy.
Lots more updates to come in the coming days, be sure to stay tuned. Any issues with the mobile site or anything not working quite right just drop us an email. Although this is a hobby site we do our very best to provide you with a friendly and fun experience which is why I spent nearly 3months completely reworking the site to make things hopefully that much easier to use!
