Here's what's new
And here it is - Media UK v5. Here's what's new.
The layout is neater, flows better on wider screens (try resizing your screen wider and then smaller and see what happens), and allows us much more opportunity to control our look and feel in the future.
One less password to remember: Media UK uses Facebook to help you log in. You'll use this to control any email alerts you get from Media UK shortly - we've temporarily disabled new signups while we continue to work on the backend. It's swamped with users, which is great!
For selected journalists, we now list their most recent articles. Try Jemima Kiss's page for a good example. Shout if your favourite journalist isn't already linked.
v5 of Media UK includes a ton of layout tweaks and nudges to make your life easier (and help you find what you want). As a result, you'll notice, if you use Internet Explorer v6, that we no longer support your browser. Less than 3% of people do, and - since even Microsoft agrees - we no longer support it.
Media UK's discussions are now open to everyone, too. Our discussion system is rather rough and ready, but works. Join in the debate - using your Facebook password, or selected other providers too, as an initial trial.
Finally, if you're an old user of Media UK's discussion system - a "full user", in our parlance - we'll be removing your details in the next month or so from our database. We'll mail you as we do it.
Please do contact us with any specific issues - particularly if you spot an error. You will - a lot has changed. And thank you for continuing to use Media UK.
