Got Feedback?

2000-07-15 22:42:04+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

Meta: A few days ago Todd was wondering if his contributions were in-line with what I was looking for, and Eric is out here in Cafilornia to visit, and he commented that he really likes the new multiple contributor format, but he'd really like to see the next contributor added to be a non-techie. He mentioned "someone like Debra", less nerdly than the rest of us, but I don't have anyone in line for that that doesn't already have their own 'blog. I haven't looked at the logs to see how the public at large is dealing with the changes, but does anyone have any suggestions or comments? On the list as soon as I get this one product done for a client is a list of most recent message activity at the top, and there's a few syndication things I need to clean up, but how's the multiple contributor thing working for y'all?

I like the multiple contributor thing; Todd and Eric seem to be fitting in with what I come to Flutterby for. I think adding a 'non-techie' would be interesting; if given a choice, I think I'd vote for a female voice.

The only suggestion I have is to move the entry information (title, author, and the comments link) from the end of the paragraph to the front, just to make it easier to tell who's saying what, and how many comments have been made, and so on.

Hey guys, I'm flattered -- very much so. Much thanks! I've really enjoyed the expanded, multi-contributor format and I think you should keep it going. (Even when it comes to sex stuff, you guys do a good job differentiating yourself from me -- kudos!) I don't have any preferences on the overall format/layout -- works fine for me as is. If you want different voices, you might want to look within your own neck of the woods. If you parade the idea around locally, I bet you'll get some bites -- you've gotten lots of journalists in your area and tons of arts people. (Between the dotcom's and the arts, sheesh -- there must be an untapped vein of gold there.) Think about hitting your most progressive colleges as well. Bet there's some talent there just waiting to discover the art of weblogging. Oh, and Dan: how about checking within that sexuality group you mentioned some time area. The one who's web page you were helping out with? Hope the leads help. And it's the least I can do, all things considered. Deb
