This week's assignment is for Public Access members to contribute GIFs on how they feel about the redesigned home page, but we thought you might also want to see some reaction GIFs from the folks on staff because, hey, we have feelings too you guys. Let the GIF party commence!
When they first told me that there was a new home page in the words for Public Access, I was like:
It's been a few months since we started Public Access, and we wanted to make the home page clean, functional and inviting to use. We also wanted to play around some with new sections to highlight great stories and include links to the detailed user reviews that can be found on most product pages.
When the intrepid Engadget devs, Conrad and Stefan, gave me my first look at the mock up to the new Public Access home page I thought:
It's nicely laid out and the Top 5 box is a great way to highlight posts (it's currently displaying the posts with the most page views). It'll look even better when the Q&A section and the tags are added (which are both on the way).
When I heard there was an official launch date, I reacted a little like this:
When the new Public Access home page actually went up with all the elements working flawlessly, I was stoked and also thankful to Stefan and Conrad for all their work.
Just for fun I asked Stefan to share a GIF about how he felt when the page was done and up. He said this GIF pretty well sums up his reaction:
Thanks again to everyone who worked on the home page! We're looking forward to seeing your reaction GIFs too, so share 'em in a Public Access post (or heck, put them up here in the comments if you'd prefer).
