Welcome to the new and improved Ultiworld.com! We hope you find the new design more engaging — here’s what’s new.
As you can see, the front page has a whole new look. We’ve eliminated the feature boxes, instead choosing to highlight one major story, along with some other featured content.
We also have a weekly newsletter now. It’s free! Sign up to get the best of Ultiworld delivered to your inbox every Tuesday, and tell us a little bit about your interests to get a more personalized version. No spam, ever.
Perhaps the biggest change is the addition of our editors’ blog on the left-hand side, adjacent to the main content area. It’s a space for insight, ideas, and context from the top Ultiworld editors as a supplement to the stories we publish. We have a longer explanation of its purpose over at the blog itself. Let us know what you think.
Finally, we have also implemented a much improved comment system. We encourage you to use or create a Disqus login, which will allow you to comment seamlessly across the site, keeping a record of what you post. You can also subscribe to individual comment threads by clicking the drop-down arrow to the right of the stars rating box. Comments can be voted up and down, and you can sort the thread in a variety of ways.
We think the new design will really improve your browsing experience. As always, we welcome your feedback. If you see any bugs or experience any problems, please let us know by comment or email.
