the new you: a sneak preview04/23/06 at 3:59 pm | Posted in INQUIRER.net | 33 Comments
It's still in beta, as our tech people are testing and debugging the system, but here's a sneak peek at the revamped YOU — our site for the interactive youth. Sorry, couldn't resist sharing this screenshot.
Who knows, you might see it live in the next few days — heck, it might be live by the time you read this.
Props to my editorial assistant Cathy Miranda. We worked feverishly to migrate to the new template and meet the deadline, particularly since we introduced new sections. All the content's there, the articles have been edited, and the pages generated. The new site is waiting in the wings, so please just be patient while the tech people sort out the kinks. Kudos to the INQ7 tech team for the in-house system they developed — this is actually version 3 of our homegrown secret weapon.
Please feel free to share your comments. I hope all of you could be part of the new YOU.
We're unveiling a new submission form, but in the meantime you could already send pics for the new Barkada Scene online gallery/event calendar.
Whether they're pics of your school activities, gimmicks, concerts, trips, outdoor adventures, cosplay, hobbies, mall escapades, org events, LAN parties or online gaming sessions with your barkada, e-mail your photos to email@example.com and we'll check them out. Make us an extension of your moblog or photoblog, if you want 🙂 We can't guarantee that all pics will be posted, but we promise to take a look at all of them (especially if they're cosplay pics, hehe, just kidding).
Please e-mail your pics in JPEG format and include brief captions. Pics should be at least 300 pixels wide and at least 72 dpi. Actually, the bigger the pic, the better, so we can resize them for the thumbnail, standard and zoom versions. You want to look your best, right? We'll also be accepting video clips soon — I'll keep you posted once the site is live.
In the meantime, here's a screen capture of the whole site — hope you'll like it.
