We are presently looking for, purchasing, and testing new designs. The present design has been absolutely great except for a lingering phpThumb issue that hasn’t been resolved despite many attempts to fix it.
The new design will be more functional, faster, and even more feature rich. And we may even open it up to user registration, once we resolve the spam registration issue.
Right now we are testing four designs, and may test more. We are hoping to meet the New Year with a new TAZ face in early 2012. Unfortunately we can’t be more specific than that as we don’t know how many designs we will test or how long each design will take to test.
We want to make sure that when we do make the change that it will be free of any issues and provide a much better experience for our visitors.
This isn’t the first change we’ve made, TheTAZZone has gone through many incarnations over it’s 6 year existence. Spending the first 3 years as a website, and the last 3 years as a blog. Much of the first year was spent trying to find something to fit what we wanted the TAZ to be.
Along with this change we will be looking for contributors.
If you would like to be a part of our growing and progressive site we would be interested in hearing from you. The topics we focus on are:
- music lists and music-related articles
- computer, internet, blogging, and photoshop tutorials
- world news and opinion
- general personal commentary
( the games are all hand-picked by me, however gaming news might be another option. )
We will be looking for 12 regular contributors. Who will have their own section under Featured Writers; will have a small banner image on the main page linking to their site; will have a short bio in the footer of each article they post also linking to their site, and each article will display their own footer copyright notice.
This offer is only open to people I know; friends of mine on Twitter, Facebook, Blip, TAZforum, Friendfeed, and other haunts I attend.
If you are interested in becoming a regular contributor to TheTAZZone in 2012 please send your request to: submissions[at]thetazzone.com
