Hi Chris,

I think the new Author Area is VERY attractive and things seem well organized.

As with any change, it will take a little getting used to, but on first glance I found everything I needed very quickly and easily.

Thanks for continuing to upgrade this amazing service!

Best wishes,

Yeah, we really wanted to give our members an easier to use experience with this new interface… but it’s so radically different (behind the scenes) than our current interface that we found it hard to ‘bridge’ users from one experience to the next.

The only thing missing is ‘art’ under arts and entretainment.
The closest you have to what I do, which is paint and sculpt and write about those things, is tatoos.

I think what you have now is MUCH easier to navigate and understand. I know it’s tempting to keep coming up with new innovations, but it’s also a good thing to know when you have something that’s working well.

What you have now is very easy to understand and access. I’d leave it.

How could we have made it better to navigate?

Comment provided May 22, 2006 at 3:16 PM



Hey, all.

I really, really like the new layout. I think that it puts the rules and procedures within easy access. It always takes a while to learn and adjust – things not being where we’re used to seeing them feels funny at first. We’ll all get it.

I think that when a new author arrives on the way it looks NOW (the all-red version), it’s not clear exactly how one goes about submitting the first article. Another oddity: you go to edit an article, and the rules are above the scroll but the article you wrote is way down below. I think that the new layout corrects both problems, with everything in easy access.

The rules are important as well. Many articles are held up in the queue due to authors not reading or understanding the rules. New layout makes them more accessible.

Overall, it’s an improvement, to me. And change is nice. got some brand new clothes. Nifty.

Hey Chris,

I like it. Just when I was thinking I had made a big mistake not keeping track of my publish dates so I could calculate average views per day or week or month, they are right there in plain view.
I don’t expect problems transitioning. What;s the target date for implementation?

Lance Winslow writes:

I agree with Dina. And imagine 5900 articles to scroll down to find the one you wish to edit? Impossible, so I have stopped editing, which is too bad, because some day I would like to go through all those articles and fix spelling and miss placed words which are out of sync. Another comment is that if I edit an article, I want to make sure it does not add “One More” article to my article count, other wise if I edit 5000 articles over lets say 2-years time, it would show 10,000 articles which is incorrect you see? Another editing issue I would like clarification on. Any format change takes getting use to, I suppose and any change requires risk, so as long as authors have no risk of data loss, they will eventually adapt and with new features or more humanly thought out navigation in the end it will be good. It would take getting use to of course. But it will become second nature rather quickly for those authors posting 5-10 or more articles per week. New authors will never know the difference having not be acclimated to the old way you see? Change is good on the back end as long as it works. Now then the important concentration should also be increasing traffic counts to the site.

Geez Chris, you had to go and ask something definitive! ;-)

Ok, I went back to it, spent a little more time, and I can see that the problem is with me–I HATE change. When I get used to something, I want it to stay that way. The old way is fine, but I can see the new way is more user friendly–the different menus near the top are nice to have there.

Brand new authors will not know the difference. The rest of us will either love it right away or get used to it.

To Lance.

Editing (with either interface) does not change how many articles you have. How many you have is counted in real time.

To everyone else,

Note: The newer beta interface Requires your java script to be turned on for the new preview to work while submitting an article. (you should get a message telling you if it isn’t). You will notice you never move from your submit form until you actually submit. What this means for you… You should Never lose your form info again! The new submit should be much more reliable.

No target date for implementation has been set as we’re working daily to improve it… When we are satisified that it delivers what we built it to deliver, then we’ll begin a transition plan. Till then, it’s a work in progress.

Comment provided May 23, 2006 at 1:50 PM




I do agree that the important focus should be on finding new ways to improve traffic to the site…as this is a daily and weekly focus for us that never ends.

Incidentally, yesterday was the highest traffic day this month… Any day with more than 100k+ visitors is a good day. :-)

Is there a way to put commas in the numbers for the number of article views? Because once you get very far over 1 million, for instance today I am at; 1577010 and with over 1.5 million article views that large number gets kind of blury and harder to read. Also with over 31170 article captures fromk Ezines that number is getting harder and harder to read, I mean you look at it and watch the number go up each day, but you really have to do a double take. Is this for real??? I know it is, but if it had commas in it, it would be easier to read you see? Other than that one little item, I think is the best website for writers and authors in the World. But hey that is just one man’s opinion right?

The new beta interface for members DOES HAVE the comma separation for all numbers in all reports.

The old interface does not and we have halted development on the old interface all together.

After carefully looking over the new Beta, I’ve decided that I like it better than what you’ve got going now. It take some people time to get used to new interfaces. The best thing I see (after actually going through and seeing what you have included) is the wysiwyg editor!

Now we don’t have to manually insert html making the job of formatting much easier. This is an excellent addition.

I do have a question. I noticed a press release feature. This may need some more explanation.

Hi Chris, Wally and the rest . . .

The new layout is attractive and intuitive.
After submitting 10 articles I felt completely comfortable with the process. The main improvement I noticed is the preview/submit function (with the separate window and improved spell checker).
I had a question (about formatting links in the Resource Box) that Wally answered right away — Thanks!
You guys are great; please keep enhancing your service and we’ll keep writing.

Chris, you asked Clayton:

“You said, ‚¬“One suggestion I’d like to make. Is it possible to be able to click on the ezine publishers number on the activity report and be able to identify who has picked up the article? That would be great for tracking.‚¬

Ok, HOW SPECIFICALLY would or could we pull that off?”

Which made me think:

What if you started another type of membership – the article publisher membership, and required logins and an article checkout process, as a way to keep track of what comes out. The same data could be pipelined into the system (okay so I’m throwing out jargon now) as what’s there now. You can import, sort, and categorize just as you do with the existing article submissions.

Now, I’m guessing that you’ll shoot down this idea because it’s simply easier for an article publisher to just grab and go without any fanfare.

However, because you threw out the question, I answered it. But if you DID do this… I guess you’d be doubling the size of your database and doubling your server load, which may in fact not be worth the investment.

The article word count is no longer shown. I believe that this is a handy tool.

I must admit, it did take me a few minutes to figure out where to go to view my reports. But it won’t take that long next time. I still, after five articles, have search the current site to find out where I want to go to submit and edit reports because the menu is so long.

Ed Howes writes:

Thinking about what Clayton and Dina said. In nearly three and a half years of publishing on large directories I have only twice received an Email from a publisher notifying me my article was being used at their web site. If I knew who was publishing my articles and when, I might visit. I might subscribe. I might read some of the articles by other articles and I might be inspired to write something specifically for that publisher. Maybe publishers are missing the boat because they don’t notify writers they are using their articles. If Dina and Clayton’s approach is technically beyond the pale how about a notice to publishers that aside from rare courtesy, they might benefit by sending an author an email notice her article is being published at this link. Make author email addresses available to the publishers so they don’t have to go to an author web site. These people are benefitting greatly from other people’s work and should be reminded from time to time.

Looks good at first glance (submitting first article with this new inteface now).

Request: Would be helpful to have a “favorite subcategory” feature that remembers the ones you’ve chosen in the past. has a feature like this where when you’re adding a post, it remembers some of the tags you’ve used in the past, and they are available to select right there.

Possible implementation: Store last 10 selected subcategories and display them dynamically at the top of the dropdown, much like MS Word does with recent font selections.

Right now, we’re focusing on the core engine and will focus on detail work over Summer… I’m sure we’ll be able to give you some pretty color choices for your membership stylesheet.


Yes, it can appear like a step back if you’ve logged a lot of time in our current membership interface, but the behind-the-scenes work that this new interface allows will give us some of the flexibility we’ve been missing to add new functionality.

Aussie Jan,

Thanks for catching that. Fixed.


The Press Release module is only a concept at this point and we’re proceeding slowly with it for fear of straying from our core path. More on what and why we built that project in a future blog entry.

This project is a serious team effort between tens of thousands of our users and our full-time developers. One of the best things that I can do for our development team is to get out of their way and let them build it…and they always find new ways to create new efficiencies, functionalities and innovations that we hope you’ll like.

Thanks for the feedback and know that if I didn’t respond to any of the issues, it’s because the whiteboards are currently full at the moment. :)

Hi Chris and your wonderfully talented and innovative team,

Great interface, easy to use; intuitive menus; love the WYSIWYG for articles, will really help non-techy colleagues I want to introduce to article writing; look forward to the launch of the press release module. And I agree with all the other positive feedback you’ve already received.

Q: Articles submitted through the beta interface; will they automatically be included in the current site or do they have to be submitted through the old one as well?

A few wishes or thoughts:

1) I’d quite like a printer friendly version of my article reports.

2) For newbies – could we have a ‘tutorial’ or ‘how-to’ guide, or better still a link to your great article writing course. After all why shouldn’t you do some self-promotion, especially as you don’t force us authors to put up with google adsense whilst submitting our articles.

3) I know you don’t like us to change author names, but is it possible to let us delete author names that have no articles against them? Takes care of any mispellings / mis typings when setting an author name up.

Look forward to the new version being launched.

Comment provided May 27, 2006 at 5:58 AM




1) Ok, we’ll work on that.

2) Good idea.

3) Giving authors the ability to delete alt-author names will require a two weeks or more of programming to address all of the IF/THEN statements that this feature would require. For right now, we don’t mind if you send us an email to author support to remove alt author names that were a mistake.

Thanks again for the feedback!

I don’t know much about such things as Carol has suggested but it seems like such a system would require member formatting done on each article. Category: Double Space. Title: Double Space Summary: Double Space. Text: Double Space. Resource: 1,2,3. Double Space. Keywords: Double Space. I Agree. The big question would be, how much less editing would occur with this model? Would errors increase? I imagine they would and singular submission with edit features helps reduce these errors.

Those of us with multiple areas of interest may wish to use different pen names for different areas. Like I am Tig Leach in motorcycling…

I think it would also be helpful to have a “notes” box which would not be part of the published article at all, just information for the editors here and/or the user of the articles. I know this isn’t often available on any article directory, but I think it would be a useful enhancement.

In the preview window my article looked fine, but after posting it the line spaces before and after my bullet lists were stripped out.

I went back and edited, just in case I’d tken them out by mistake – but got the same result.

Might be a small glitch with the HTML editor.

Awesome new editor, Chris. I love it!

I noticed in the spell check all my words that contained an apostrophe were marked as incorrect. I do not use Word so this isn’t a curly quote issue. I have always used NoteTab Pro which is a straight text editor.

If it wasn’t already mentioned, I think your notice that HTML code input directly into the editor will not render properly should be somehow highlighted more. It’s there, yes, but who reads those things? ;-{)

Perhaps just bolding it? Perhaps a button that has “HTML ON” or something similar?

I just tried editing an existing article, previewing it with spell check and submitting it. I’ll come back later to try other features.

Frann Leach,

Yes, you already have the ability to use multiple pen names or multiple variations on your own name (provided someone else is not already using the same name). Just ADD an ALT-AUTHOR to your account.

Read this article on the subject:—Secrets-To-Managing-Multiple-Topics-When-Writing-Articles&id=154856

Our dev team and managing editor debated your request for an additional NOTES field to give comments to our editors. At this time, we’re gonna pass on adding that feature because it could massively slow down our ability to approve articles quickly (we’ve already had to double our editorial labor costs this year due to articlespammers and authors trying to sneak duplicate content past us).

For our new Premium author membership account that is not released yet, we could consider adding a notes field as a VIP service to our paid members…but no ETA as to when that will be released.

Thanks again to you and everyone for your feedback. We appreciate it and take every comment seriously.

Dave Navarro,

You ROCK!…ok, so perhaps that’s a different Dave Navarro. Never mind.

Important distinction for you and everyone using the WYSIWYG editor:

If you’re gonna use HTML code, then go into ACCOUNT MANAGER, ACCOUNT PREFERENCES, and choose NO for the WYSIWYG editor.

Then, the submission interface will perform exactly as it does not with the current old interface.

Don’t know why I just got an Email for a Dave Navarro comment back a ways, but I don’t recall reading it and I liked his idea about remembering the last 10 sub categories chosen for submissions. I was also thinking a two part cat dropdown would be handy. Choose your main category, then the sub. Faster and easier, if a little less educational. And speaking of scrolling forever, this must be the longest thread in the world. I wore out my mouse wheel to get here.

If staff is taking EVERY comment seriously, I must be more careful with mine.

Beta late than nevahh. I like the new site but I did get a bit ahead of myself when submitting a press release that got lost in space. Sorry ’bout that. When you are ready to launch it, please be specific in explaining what it’s for and how we are to use it. In fact, for the tech disadvantaged like me, I appreciate some hand holding. Thanks Chris and teammates for working so hard.
