Hey howdy hey MiceChatters,
We've got some really exciting news for you today. Monorail Man and his elves have been burning the midnight oil to craft a whole new front page and featured content system for the site. Beginning VERY soon (perhaps as early as tomorrow) you'll find all your favorite articles in a new place (our front page). While all the old content will still be available where it was, all new content will be available only from our new front page (instead of the old vBulletin Blogs we have been using).
But that's not all. We've made significant changes to make it easier for folks to find and share MiceChat featured articles and news. To further that goal (and make it much easier to read our stories on mobile devices), many of our longer articles (like Dateline Disneyland, Orlando Parkhopper, In The Parks, Dateline Disney World and Weekend Update) will begin breaking their content up into individual stories rather than one big long post. Everything you love will still be there, but they'll be their own unique articles on the front page. An average Dateline Disneyland may end up being 3 or more articles. That means, when you share a story you like on Facebook or Twitter, your friends won't have any trouble finding the part you were trying to share. It will also make it possible for our theme park reporters to cover breaking news as it happens instead of always waiting for their publishing date. You'll find Dateline on Monday as you always have, but may also see additional stories from Dateline throughout the week!
To support all this new content, the front page has been completely redesigned. It will look much more like a magazine and have stories grouped around topics you are interested in (such as Disneyland, Disney World, Orlando Parks, Disney News, Featured articles, etc).
The Weekly Round Up will also be coming to your email. Rather than sending out one long out of date newsletter every month, we'll begin delivering an enhanced MiceChat Round Up via email (and also on the web) every Wednesday. If you don't get our current emails, please subscribe by visiting our Newsletter Sign Up Page: MiceChat Newsletters and Information
In the coming weeks, we'll have even more exciting changes, including a single front page for all of your favorite MiceChat AND MiceAge content. No more searching across multiple sites for your favorite writers. It will all be in one easy to find place.
The MiceChat forums will receive a very minor update, but all functionality will remain as it is for now.
We know you are going to love the new look and feature enhancements we've made and hope that the new easier to use MiceChat encourages you to start sharing more of our articles with your friends and family and that it will be much easier for you to read MiceChat from your smart phone and tablet devices as well.
Much thanks to Monorail Man and his crew of happy coding elves for the remarkable work they've done on the new site.
Keep your eyes open for a new front page shortly!
