Site update

by Rich Brome (Moderator)    Dec 19, 2011, 3:04 PM

This weekend, we launched an update to the site.

The big change is promoting "OSes" from just a few small forums to more prominent pages on the site, which - in addition to forums - include pages for related news.

As part of this change, we also changed how we list single-vendor OSes like iOS and BlackBerry. We're now treating them the same as multi-vendor OSes, instead of considering them "proprietary". (The way the smartphone market has evolved in the past few years, I think this makes the most sense going forward.)

A slew of other changes have been rolled out in this update (and in smaller updates earlier this month.) The highlights are:
  1. The main Forums page has a new look, making it easier and faster to get to the most popular forums.
  2. Manufacturer forums now have an area at the top of the page linking to current phone-specific discussions.
  3. The Reviews section now has a User Reviews tab, summarizing recent user review activity for new phones.
  4. There are now dedicated News tabs on all phone and manufacturer pages, showing all recent news for that phone / manufacturer.
  5. Carrier pages have updated options for filtering phones.

Please let me know if you run into any glitches with these new features.

I'd love to hear feedback, as well.
