Sharpologist has moved to a new hosting platform. While the previous host was certainly adequate, it just wasn’t keeping up with the times and it was preventing easy changes and improvements to the site.
You won’t see too many obvious changes at first: the migration is as close to “apples-to-apples” of the over-all look of the site as practical. The previous platform ran on a much earlier version of the blogging software that’s running here. As with many software updates, there are minor visual tweaks and redesigns but the big changes are behind the scenes.
Over the next several months there will be changes to both the “look” of the site and improving the feature set with the aim of making it more streamlined and easier to use. One improvement right off the bat–you can now (finally!) subscribe to article comments, so if someone replies to your comment you will know about it. Improvements to site navigation to make it easier to find the content that is most relevant to you, adding better feedback tools to show what kinds of articles are most popular, and making the site faster and easier to read (especially on mobile devices), are also planned.
Your help is needed with helping to determine new functionality. What kinds of things do you want to see?
- A Q&A section (not a forum, there are already enough of those)?
- A product review database?
- Online courses on shaving and grooming?
