New tabs on homepage

#1 Post by coz » Wed May 13, 2009 2:45 pm

So I put the question out there on Twitter. I launched a new look to the homepage. Nothing drastic.
No content was removed, just consolidated. All the main feeds are now in the tabbed area at the top.

I've put a little more emphasis on the Google FriendConnect gadgets, too. Because hopefully in the not-too-distant future, youll be able to use one single login (your google login) to access all or many of the different areas of HITS (forums, fanjournals, news, feedback, more?)

I added the Google Trends graph, too, showing Tally Halls popularity.

But NO ONE replied except Jill who said it was too focused on the Google stuff and not enough on the content. And another guy said it was "well done".

So this leads me to think that either it has no effect on most of you, no one really cares, or most of you dont like it but dont want to tell me.

Tell me.... does it work for you? Does it not? Cuz I'm not doing it for me. I'm doing it for you!

you know how i feel about it. i do really like the fact that the tabs are at the top of the forums, too. i don't know if it's always been like that, but i just noticed and it's quite helpful!

Hmm..... it has always been like that... BUT, that's the main menu.
The tabs I'm talking about are in the grey-ish HERES THE LATEST box.

Thats the whole of what ive changed. Rather than have all that info in little boxes spread around the page, they're all right there in tabs. So now it seems theres a slight miscommunication and I gotta wonder what you were talking about....
