Ch-Ch-Changes: New Commenting System & Merc Mobile Upgrades

Posted by Alison Hallett on Fri, Jun 22, 2012 at 9:59 AM

Hello internet friends, enemies, and people we're slightly afraid might one day bomb the office. You may have noticed some recent changes to our commenting system, most notably the addition of "like" and "dislike" buttons, and the ability to subscribe to comment threads (no more annoying hitting "refresh!" until 3 in the morning!). You'll also notice that comments are no longer numbered—but don't worry! Bringing them back is on the to-do list, and in the meantime I guess referring to posts by name/time stamp is the next best option.

Bigger than the changes to our commenting system, though, are the upgrades to our mobile site—which now works on all phones with a browser including Android, iOS, Windows, Blackberry, etc. Merc Mobile has been completely revamped—event and restaurant info is now more easily searchable, and (this is awesome) the restaurant page now features menus. Plus, our blog, current issue, and issue archives are much easier to access and search. All told, it's a pretty giant improvement. Just dial up on your phone, and tap the "mobile version" link.


Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments. I look forward to down voting them.
