Thanks for your patience as I continue to work out a few kinks in Political Wire‘s new look. Readers have been very helpful in spotting bugs, glitches and other problems.
Here’s a sampling of the feedback:
I like it. Not that it makes any of your stories happier or cheerier, but it makes the reading experience more pleasant. Keep up the great work.
A majority of comments were like this one:
Love the new look! Much more distinctive and very easy to read.
But not everyone is happy. About a dozen readers shared this sentiment:
I’m an addictive reader and contributor on Political Wire. I’m not someone who is afraid of change or simply likes things “the old way.” So from that perspective I’m offering this critique: the red brick color for the headlines just glares off the screen. It’s off-putting/uninviting. I would say most of the readers come to PW for a calm conversation about the topics of the chaotic political day and a softer or more soothing color would work better for me.
In the hundreds of comments received, I’ve also had many good suggestions. Please keep them coming!
