Hello there, kind and lovely people! We’ve updated some stuff, implemented new features and slightly changed the way QUOTE.fm works.
Some things look a bit better now. Isn’t that something! We’re going to use less buttons in favor of typography, which will take effect all over the site in the next few weeks. The “Choose Topics”-text on Discover describes what Discover does, how it’s used and its function as a menu. Three things in one, incredible.
“Popular” is gone for good. We’ve merged it into Discover, which now shows “Everything” by default, which are the same results Popular showed before. We’ve added a way to choose between a view by popularity and a chronological one.
In case you haven’t noticed: We’ve had Source Pages all along. This is the new Source Page for Daringfireball. You can follow a page, recommend it or block it if you don’t want to see any recommendations from that site. As of now, Source Pages feature all articles of their respective website, you can see which one is the newest and which one the most popular. A click on their headlines brings you to what we refer to as Article Pages. These show all recommendations for a certain article.
The new Discover takes advantage of this. Up until now, if a read was so good that many people recommended it, it would show up several times under Discover. Starting today, it will instead rank higher and therefore be more eye-catching. Its most popular recommendation by a single person will be shown on top, the faces of all the other people will line up right below. If you want to see every single recommendation for a text, the headline is linked to the Article Page, thus to all recommendations.
There’s a chance that some headlines are messed up, but we’ll try our best to fix them in the days to come and to make sure we spot them quickly in the future.
We hope you’ll like this update. The next one, “Project Underground” will introduce even more new stuff to play with. And yes, we’re making these project names up out of thin air. If it sounds cool, it doesn’t need a meaning.
