Next week (god willing) we’ll be relaunching MotherJones.com. Gone will be the cluttered layout that you see here and the clunky code that we deal with. If you’d like to take a sneak peek, and along the way help us with load testing and bug targeting, go to http://preprod.motherjones.com. You’ll be asked for a login and password. That’s mojo/fearless (all lower case). Once you’re in the site, you can read about why we did what we did, poke around, register and pimp out your profile, etc. Please bear in mind, however, that:
1) Your username will stay valid after the new site launches, so choose wisely…
2) Content is a few weeks out of date, and some old comments have yet to migrate too. Don’t worry, we’ll get the latest articles and all the comments moved over when we launch.
3) Comments you leave on the beta site will be overwritten when we switch over. Please do leave comments and try out the discussion system, just remember that if you’ve written any great pearls of wisdom, you should save a copy elsewhere.
4) Any questions, bug reports, or general input about the site, please leave a comment on our inaugural blog post, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Eager to hear what you have to say. (And yes, we know it’s slow, we’re running compression programs…)
