A quick update
We’ve heard from several people lately that our homepage is slow to load and jumpy on some connections, due to the fact that there’s so much content. In an effort to streamline things and hopefully make the page load more quickly, we’ve combined the featured blog space (by doing away with the “Community Spotlight” box). This doesn’t mean we’re not going to feature blog posts from the community anymore; it simply means featured posts will all appear in the same box – whether they’re the very best entries from community members, or whether they’re coming from long-time ND contributors. This will hopefully make it a little easier on those of you who RSS the featured blogs (who hadn’t been receiving Community Spotlight posts in your RSS feed).
If you have any other feedback or ideas about how we can improve the site, please let us know.
