First, I wanted to point out and get some reaction to a few tweaks we've made to the site layout. Basically, everything we did came from the feedback you guys gave us.
First and foremost, we've repositioned the fanposts & fanshots to the right side and up as high as they were on the old site. I can also now promote fanposts (and add photos to them) to the top of the page. We've also added links to them on the top nav banner, which is on every page.
Also, one of the major complaints was how the stories below our "cover" were zig-zagged and made it more difficult to scan. No more. It's a straight line now.
Also, they've given us the option to have smaller lead story photos that take up less room. I'm using that layout right now, but I can still also use all the other layouts you've seen on the site as well. I'm just interested in what people think of the smaller ones.
Onto the year end user stats. Our pal One.Cool.Customer posted some of these recently, but I was able to get my hands on some more official numbers from the SBN mothership.
