Two Changes to the ArLiSNAP Site

Hello all,

I just wanted to cover two changes to the site

  1. The removal of related links on individual posts
  2. The removal of Snap Shots

I removed related links on posts because the relavancy was very weak.  The links are automatically created, and some people have had poor experiences with it (e.g. a racial activist with links to racial hate groups).  I reviewed multiple posts of ours, and only a handful of links proved to be relevant.  If you’d like to view a blog currently with links, go to http://tinyurl.com/5c7es6  If you’d like to read about related links and the comments that Matt Mullenweg has received so far, go to http://wordpress.com/blog/2008/04/25/possibly-an-announcement/  If you like the idea of having links to outside blogs that might or might not be relevant, please comment below.

I also removed Snap Shots (the little pop-up windows when you mouse over a link) because they sometimes make it difficult to actually click on the link and their general annoyance to some people (i.e. Carter & I).  If you find that they are helpful, please comment below.

Thanks,

Bryan
