I would like to call your attention to 2 important new features of this site that should make your Wesleying experience a little better. The first is the Featured Posts section of the sidebar. Here you’ll find the 5 latest non-event posts without having to scroll through a page of event posts to get to them. We have also added 2 filters, which you can find at the top of the sidebar. As you can see for yourself, you now have the option to view either only event posts or non-event posts instead of them all mixed together as in the default setting. These two changes are part of our efforts to make Wesleying just as much about student voices as it is student events. Hopefully, these changes and the ones to come will make it easier for you all to access the content you want to see, while also encouraging our writers to write more original content and our readers to join in on ensuing discussion.
We understand some of the frustration with how slow progress is in revamping the site, but please understand that we are students like you. We have all sorts of things to keep us busy and finding time for cosmetic changes and such is difficult. Still, we feel the same way as you all about how much there is to improve and I promise that all the things you find ugly/annoying/user-unfriendly are just as irritating to us. We’re working on it!
As for this no-longer-funny joke of a header, it is soon gone. I am deathly afraid of commitment but I’m gonna commit to this: there will be a new header by the end of next week. I’ve been looking at that thing for way too long and the time has come for change– change we can believe in!
PS- Because we all tend to focus on what needs to be improved and negativity isn’t always so helpful, I’d like to know:
What do you like about Wesleying? What do you want to see more of or hope stays the same?
*If no smartass commenter responds to this post with “it can’t get no worse,” I’ll be really disappointed.
