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 [View all]

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
