Job Well Done!

Re: just awful
There are trade-offs to everything, but we know from experience with other UBM sites that this design makes it easier for readers to register and comment, and it tends to drive up the volume and quality of the conversation. The link showing where to comment certainly isn't hidden, although it may not be where you were looking for it previously.

I do think your point about not being able to see the article while you're commenting on it is a good one, and maybe that can be addressed as we refine the site.

I hadn't tried copying and pasting from Word, so I'm going to try it now, below to see if I have the same problem you reported with HTML gone wild.

Follow David F. Carr on Twitter @davidfcarr or Google+. He is the author of Social Collaboration For Dummies (October 2013).

Looks like it worked.

Re: Nice Revamp But...
The developers were targeting a responsive design that should adapt for display on mobile devices, so specific feedback on what needs to be improved will be important and welcome.

Great job on the revamp
I haven't tried the mobile app yet but I think this is a great revamp, making it easier to find and read/watch/digest content of interest. I particularly like 'Steal Our Slides' - a great resource and it made me laugh.

Great job - well done!

Nice Revamp But...
Works nicely on Windows based OS w/a traditional browser. On an Android-based mobile device or w/Safari, not so much, which is surprising for this publication since mobile device web access is the new sheriff in town.

Great site and approach
The new site is fabulous and I am looking forward to the quality of conversations on this site. Technology is the key driver for two-way conversations like this and is thus highly appropriate for a technology site!

Congrats on the relaunch!
Rob,

Web site relaunches are NO fun--I've been through a few myself over the years--and it seems you guys are managing this one smoothly. Bravo! 

I'm especially pleased to see how much attention the new site is giving to the "community" aspect around comments and so forth. That strategy is exactly right. Making it easier for readers to interact with IWeek--and each other--is vital. 

Looking forward to many informative stories and conversations.

P.S. One request: Spellchecker in the front-end comments editor! (If yours truly can launch a personal Joomla site with this feature, I'm certain UBM's crackerjack team can too.) You know, some poor bastards can't speel worthe a dyme and need all the help we can get.
