If you have visited the site over the last couple of days you would have noticed that something was going on. This is Geek Native 3. The site you see at the minute is the third generation of the blog and the spiritual successor to GameWyrd.
Readers rarely react well when websites change. How many people have threatened to quit Facebook over cosmetic changes? I’ll try and wear thick skin but do let me know what you think in the comments below.
Why the change?
The new site moves from HTML 4 to HTML 5. It should be much faster to load. It should be better on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.
With the new site comes a new take on the logo. Explore the blog and you will see the logo changes. The traditional elements of the Geek Native logo are still present and has been adapted to cope with the lighter theme.
An emotional change is the removal of the old GameWyrd archives from the main navigation. The section is still available as an option from “Geek Stuff”.
The most significant visual change is the homepage. The featured tabs panel at dominates the top sector shows the most recent posts, with pictures, from some key categories. Geek Native’s readers are roleplayers at heart (or geeks smart and curious enough to become roleplayers) and the default image is taken from the RPG category.
You can now subscribe to Geek Native by email!
If you have been caught up in the weirdness of the migration in the last few days – thank you for putting up with the dust.
