Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Tue Mar 13, 2012, 12:46 PM

We have made some changes to the DU Homepage

It's been three months since we launched our comprehensive overhaul of the site. One of the things that we changed was our homepage. But over time the admins decided that we needed to revisit the homepage and make some changes in order to make it fresher and more compelling. The updated homepage is now online:

http://www.democraticunderground.com

One of the driving principles of our comprehensive overhaul has been to give greater control of the site (including its content and its standards) to our members. But the homepage we created last December went in the opposite direction, giving greater control to the administrators to determine what appears there. This was a mistake which did not leverage our community's greatest strength: Our members. Our new homepage is an attempt to remedy this error. We believe this new homepage will much more interesting and useful than before.

The DU Administrators are working hard behind the scenes to make this community the best it can be. The next items on our agenda: Polls, Advanced Search, Spell Check, and improvements to the DU Journals.

Thank you for being a part of this community.

Skinner
DU Admin

1. And the Homepage looks great!

The judicious use of red makes it pop.

I like it!

But the best news is what's finally coming next! FINALLY!


Thank you Skinner, and all the admins. This is, bar none, the best site on the internet. I am proud to be a member.

I like this much better. Hopefully, it will add a little vibrancy to the site.

I would consider expanding the size of the DemocraticUnderground.com banner/button in the upper left of the screen. The real estate is available, and as it is, our "branding" is overwhelmed by our content. It should be just a little more obvious. But that is just a quibble.

Good job!

39. I haven't participated since the change was made

I really enjoyed the original DU. I am a member and a contributor since 2004.

I'm too busy to check every spelling error and I have come to rely on spell check in all the writing that I do everywhere.

I won't post again or contribute without spell check and a return to something closer to the original DU.

This is a case of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

42. Yup, the DU3 homepage kinda sucked.

 

On the old DU, the home page was pretty much my "portal" into DU. It was where I could easily scan for new content on DU. Most of the time I never even bothered with the "greatest" page, just the DU home page.

Since DU3, the home page seems cluttered and confusing to me.

For some reason my eyes don't like the video articles down the right sidebar of the screen. My mind keeps interpreting these as advertisements (because sidebars are usually advertisements, I guess), and I ignore them. The video articles used to be one of my biggest draws on the old DU home page.

I still think the home page is far too long. I don't tend to scroll down very far on web pages without something drawing me there.

The most important DU jump points for me are "greatest" and "trending now", which seems to be just another name for "greatest".

Other than that, I jump to my pet forum (guns).

43. There seems to be a glitch in my view of the home page.

When the page is minimized, I see "Latest Breaking News" as a column to the right of the "Pic of the Moment". But when I maximize the page, the "Latest Breaking News" header appears at the bottom of the column under the the "Pic of the Moment" - following the "Around DU" section - and the whole area to the right of the Pic is completely blank.

I just logged on this minute, so I don't think refresh/reload would help. I already closed the Home Page once and reloaded it - same thing.

I am also using IE 9.08112345.whatever. I'm on a laptop, circa 2009.

Any ideas on why it's doing this?

Other than that, I heartily approve of the changes!

Sometimes, things look funky when you resize, but they look fine when you load the page fresh with the page already at the desired size.

46. What I did was navigate away from the Home Page to a different page, and then back again.

It stayed the same.

BUT!!!! I have just now hit refresh on the Home Page, and - voila! - the "Latest Breaking News" section is indeed appearing as a column to the right of the "Pic of the Moment".

I am convinced that there is no technical explanation for this, and that the problem was corrected solely through your awesome mental powers decreeing that it should be so.

66. I like the set up, but the colors are identical

to the Bank of America corporate colors. Instead of doing the red/blue thing, could you go with some other combo, or make the red more orange or more purple? When Bank of America switched all of their signs to mostly red rather than mostly blue, it actually corresponded to their corporate headquarters moving from San Francisco to North Carolina......

So, I don't want to see that color of red here, it has too much baggage with it. But it is a good idea to have color contrasts.

I'm finding it both more useful and more interesting. Thank you to all the DU admin for your work over the years. This is one of the only forums I frequent on the net, in large part because I agree with the above statement. The community's greatest strength is in our members. No need to differentiate between admin though, aren't we all in it together? Technically, aren't we all members? Much praise. Well done.

76. I miss "cool" stories

Could we get some of the group hosts to submit possibilities to the Forum and Group Hosts and return that one feature?

78. Looks great, any chance to give us an easy way

To increase the width of the pages for those of running 1920 x 1200 or 2560 x 1600 monitors?

I use W7 64Bit and FF 10.0.3, and still see about 4 inches of white on either side with a 24" 1920 x 1200 monitor.

82. What is your precise meaning of "Advanced Search"?

On DU2 "Advanced Search" was used for archived posts (and was mostly useless, imho). So far, there are no archives on DU3.

So, is the DU3 "Advanced Search" only going to search DU2 archives? Are you going start archiving DU3 threads, and THEN activate "Advanced Search"?

Does this mean there will never be a "Simple Search" on DU3, like there was on DU2?

I think a lot of us would really like to know what the intentions are vis--vis a DU Search function on DU3.

Thank you in advance.

83. The search function on DU3 will be as functional as the DU2 search.

Hopefully more so.
