Merry Christmas, from Theme Park Insider
Written by Robert Niles
Well, you've probably noticed the new look around here. I'm still tweaking the design here and there, so please bear with me. :-)Tweet
The main format of the site hasn't changed all that much -- mostly just the colors. But the right rail from the home page is now found on all pages of the site, making navigation from park to park a bit easier.
Also, you no longer need to be a registered member of the site in order to vote on listed attractions, restaurants and hotels, though you will continue to need to be registered in order to submit a comment, a Blog Flume item, a discussion post or to update any of the park, attraction, restaurant or hotel description wikis. So if you are a TPI lurker, please jump in and submit your ratings for all the locations on the site that you've visited in person.
(Long-time readers, don't worry. I'm putting in place some safeguards to prevent ballot stuffing by unregistered readers.)
Finally, the bug reports: We typically keep votes on the site for 12 months, but in switching over to the open voting system, about 10 months of votes have gone missing. I'm trying to restore some of those with a back-up, but until then, please take this as an opportunity to recast your votes and submit fresh comments for the locations at the parks you frequent, or at least have visited recently.
Also, the page layout is a bit ragged at the bottom of shorter pages. I've got a potential fix for that which I'll be trying tomorrow. But right now, I'm tired. Time to go shop for Christmas dinner!
Best wishes for your holiday season, and, as always, thank you for reading and participating on Theme Park Insider!
