Re: “AJC readers are really, really excited about the AJC.com redesign

@Willie Earl Hart
I thought that I was the only person in North America that refuses to get a cell phone, other than the fictional sheriff on the TV show "Longmire".

The AJC is getting a ton of comments about the redesign, and they promise that they're working on fixes, including a priority of improving the format of the commenting sections, which Medici admits they screwed up.

Re: “AJC readers are really, really excited about the AJC.com redesign

I appreciate the posts by Mr. Medici. However, when he says "most of my time has been spent in the digital space", I wonder if that includes time on other websites, including those of AJC's competitors. Many of them have also been redesigned in the last few years and are cleaner, more functional, easier to navigate -- bottom line, more user friendly, and those that have done a good job are the ones I tend to frequent. I've been a consumer of the AJC for decades, even had subscriptions to both the Journal and the Constitution when they were separate papers. And I realize that the AJC and "newspapers" in general are fighting for their lives. I'm not against change, but, from my perspective, change should first and foremost improve the user experience.
And for those of you ragging on his typos -- shame on you. Even though one may not agree with everything he's saying, at least he has the guts to put himself out there -- he didn't have to do that.

Re: “AJC readers are really, really excited about the AJC.com redesign

The site that the AJC created to "explain" the redesign (newsite.ajc.com) actually included a comments section at first. After a deluge of negative (& that's an understatement) comments were posted, the comments section "disappeared".
I'll bet the AJC won't print a (truthful) story on the reaction to the redesign -- I'll give 100-1 odds. Any takers? ;-)

Re: “AJC readers are really, really excited about the AJC.com redesign

I've actually e-mailed my complaints to feedback@ajc.com. Got an auto response that tries to sell you on buying a subscription to the online AJC, saying:
"You may want to check out myajc.com! It’s our subscriber website, but you can preview it for free during our open house that will take place on Monday November 10th and Tuesday November 11th. It hasn’t changed and is still organized much like the old ajc.com."

Re: “A requiem for Fuzzy's Place and (perhaps) a rebirth

Does anyone know what's going on with Melody? How to get in touch with her? She was always so good to me at Fuzzy's. After Fuzzy's closed, I found her at the Pirate's Pub and talked with her for a few minutes and promised to come back, but when I did, it was closed.
