A brief tour of LU's new surroundings

A brief tour of LU's new surroundings

Liberty UnyieldingWelcome to the new and, it is hoped, improved LU. We have a new design, as of our design launch last night, and some new features, with more on the way.  Some may take a while getting used to, while others will be immediately familiar.

One new feature, which you may have noticed is the Forum, which appears on the menu bar. This is a replacement for The Wall and offers the additional functionality of unlimited text. If you’ve got an axe to grind, joke to share, or just need a place to spend some time in out of the rain, this is it. The site contributors will also be using the Forum for shorter observations and news items.

Speaking of news,  “Headlines,” previously buried in the menu bar, is now prominently displayed in the side column. Clicking on the arrow takes you to an excerpt, which in turn provides the capacity to read the entire article at its source. You also have the ability to comment on articles and excerpts.

Another new feature, this one suggested by reader JPeterman, is a “tip line.” This item lives in the Contact link in the menu bar. It is a way of letting us know what you want to hear about and/or make suggestions about how we can improve the site.

Trending: NYT on a tear over doctored videos of Pelosi slurring her speech; just one problem

We look forward to seeing you often and reacting to your reactions.
