Bubblews is back up
Have you checked out the new Bubblews design yet? They've just done a major upgrade to the code that runs the site, and there's a new look to their user interface as well. Here are a couple of things that stand out so far for me.
First, one thing I really like is that editing is now restored for older posts. Before the upgrade, a post couldn't be edited 24 hours after it was published. That was really frustrating, since the passage of time made some posts inaccurate or irrelevant. I'm really glad to see this change.
The way they handle photos is better, but IMO, still not good enough. In the old design, text overlaid and obscured part of the photo. Now, there is no overlay, but part of the text block sticks up into the bottom of the photo. To my mind, that still devalues the photo.
These are a couple of initial reactions. I do wish they had posted some info about the changes so that users don't have to discover everything by trial and error.
But all in all, I'm encouraged to see them making efforts to improve the site. Now, the real question is, will they improve the way they deal with the writers who invest time and effort there?
