Announcement: Design Update and Abduct Posts

I know we had just recently released a new design a few months ago, but the blog has since grown much more than we had expected. Now we have more contributors (which is fantastic!), more posts each day, and much more content in the whole site. And that’s why we had to update the site.

The new design, however, is not much different from the previous one. We just changed some areas we thought had problems like the footer. There is more content shown in that area now. We also removed the stars and reduced the headers height.

There are also some new features. One of them is the “abduct this post” allowing registered users to bookmark pages they like. Through this new feature we have now made it easier for you to find a tutorial or interview you saw and liked a long time ago.

Besides that, everybody can now register to the site. By doing this you will have a profile page where you can edit and use html code to even create a mini portfolio. You’ll also have your own “abducted” page where it’ll show all the pages you have abducted.

We are still working on these new features, and others. Our idea is to allow users to contribute more to the site, and even write articles. Because of that, now every contributor will have an area of 640x90 pixels in their posts. They will be able to sell that area, place banners, or even Google AdSense. Let us know if you want to be a contributor so we will provide you an account for that.

I hope you like the new design and feel free to send us suggestions and critics. All feedback is very welcome, we’d love to hear from you.
