Letter From The Editor: Pardon Our Mud!
You could have seen rather less exercise on The Warfare Zone’s homepage since yesterday. However don’t fear, we haven’t stopped publishing or something. Very a lot the other.
After over a 12 months of labor, we converted to a brand new content material administration system and irrespective of how a lot prep is finished, there’ll at all times be surprising points. We’re working by means of lots of them now, however the massive image is that this migration will likely be important to creating The Warfare Zone all that it may be within the weeks, months, and years to return. This consists of making the positioning quicker and extra navigable.
That is all occurring as we’ve two new glorious writers in coaching and one other will likely be becoming a member of our ranks subsequent Monday. That is a part of a long-planned progress spurt for TWZ that can imply extra content material from extra writers who all deliver their very own unimaginable skillsets to the crew. This has already been paying off, actually.
Final week, Howard Altman joined our crew. This week, Dan Parsons did as effectively. Howard involves us from Army Instances and is an old-school nationwide safety reporter with a deep Rolodex of sources. We’re ecstatic to have him. Dan involves us from Vertical Journal. Dan will likely be specializing in land fight techniques, small arms, particular operations, and rotary-wing subjects, whereas Howard will likely be working throughout our portfolio. In fact, all of us do some of the whole lot, however that’s at the very least the final plan.
We’ve another new addition I will likely be saying subsequent week, however till then, as soon as once more, thanks on your persistence and for reporting any bugs to us. We’ve a number of work forward to get the whole lot dialed in, however half of what’s to return would be the mom of all menu bars, with navigation to all our content material, new and previous. I’ve been mapping this out for weeks myself, it is going to be the perfect web site navigation of any navy web site as soon as it’s stay, which continues to be a methods out because it all must be categorized and programmed. The underside line right here is that daily, we work to construct the perfect navy web site round, and shortly sufficient our precise platform on the net will replicate that and allow us to do greater than we’ve ever executed earlier than.
All of those initiatives and extra are within the works to ensure we maintain evolving with our readership and produce the perfect web site we probably can for our readers. So please bear with us by means of just a little disruption now, as a result of it means some massive enhancements down the road.
