Announcing the DonationCoder.com Best Of Blog:
An Exciting New Feature at DonationCoder.com
I had the idea for this feature almost a year ago, but only just recently bit the bullet and implemented it.
It's basically a blog-like view into the "best" posts on the forum at any given time.
In some sense, it turns the forum into a kind of digg-like cauldron, where the most notable posts can be recognized and promoted to the Best Of Blog page and presented for more casual viewing, in a form similar to lifehacker. Clicking on an entry brings you into the forum discussion of that post where the reader can join in on the discussion.
Note: This new page is not for hardcore DonationCoder.com forum readers. There will be nothing on this page that isn't already on the forum. It's main purpose is providing a less overwhelming, more accessible view of just a few items on the forum each day. It should provide a gentler way of casual visitors to get introduced to our site.
So, if you have a friend who would be too overwhelmed to jump right into the donationcoder.com forums, send them over to http://blog.donationcoder.com
- it's the perfect introduction.
