GameSkinny Update 5/13 - Extra Spicy
by Amy White
Our developers have cooked up a whole batch o' changes for you on GameSkinny today! Let's go over what's what:
Wait... Does Something Look Different?
It sure does. As a result of some of the font tests we've been conducting we're making a few more changes. The updates mean a couple of key things:
- Pages will load faster
- The 'bounce' you experienced on mobile devices is gone like last week's pork chops
- In general you should experience all things GameSkinny in a slighty faster, slightly more awesome way
I won't point out all the changes to appearance here because, frankly, I want to see if you notice them and how you react. Consider it a scavenger hunt!
NOTE TO WRITERS: If you've used special table-style formatting in any of your articles (guide writers, I'm especially looking at you here) the new font updates may mean your content displays differently than it once did. Don't go changing things just yet, we're observing how readers and writers react to the updates and will most likely be releasing tweaks to things over the next several weeks.
iPad / Safari Users Rejoice
Once upon a time, when you loaded up a GameSkinny article in Safari, especially on an iPad, the ad that normally hangs out all quiet like in the sidebar would rudely infiltrate the very center of your article. How rude! We've put that ad back in it's rightful place, and it won't be bothering your story any more.
It's in the Mail
Your email, that is. For awhile now many GameSkinny members haven't gotten the daily news they requested. (Oops.) We fixed that. In the process though, we may have sent a few extra messages this morning (oops again). We promise to tone it down tomorrow.
