At last, we are preparing to move the site. If all goes well, the only thing you will need to do is make sure you have www.538refugees.com bookmarked.
The plan is to move the site on Friday, November 12, late in the day.
Features of the new site:
- Cleaner Look: Black text on a white background
- Better Performance: The random page layout errors should go away
- Protection Against Forging: It will be harder (though not impossible) to craft comments that appear to come from some other known commenter
- Mobile Phone Access: The site automatically formats for mobile phones such as iPhones, BlackBerries, Android, and Windows Mobile
- Email Interface: You will be able to send comments to the site via email.
- Threaded Conversations: Replies will appear immediately after the associated comment.
Ed: note: This has been long overdue. We look forward to our new home. My original intent was to keep the discussion forum alive. But I think we should look beyond that now. 538 has taken on a life of its own. And so shall we at 538Refugees.com. We have an opinion. We engaged the oposition. We will continue to have our voices heard. Are you listening? Can you speak? Then jump in. We want you here.
