Welcome loyal readers and first time lurkers. What you’re seeing is the newly renovated third row of Cinema Internet. We figure you cared enough to drop by, the least we can do is make it feel a little more like home; both visually and interactively. There may be some minor glitches as the architecture of these new surroundings may still be a bit creaky. By all means LET US KNOW if there is something not working properly or that needs to addressed. Feel free to email or pop your thoughts in the comment section below.
Other than the obvious aesthetic differences, there are a few minor tweaks we’ve made that we hope will enhance your experience during your stay with us. Off the bat, one of the first things you should check out when you arrive in your seat, is the “featured article” on the upper-right side of the page. An ever changing post highlighting something worthy of a little more discussion than your typical posting. In theory, this article will change roughly every few days. So stop back often for something new in that corner of the screen.
Secondly, we’ve introduced “nested comments”. (*UPDATE: this is working now!*)This seems to be a helpful tool for productive film discussion as it provides a way for readers to reply directly to a comment further up in the hierarchy instead of way down at the bottom of the list where it may seem irrelevant if the discussion might have gone in another direction. This “nesting” as we call it, can go 5 comments deep. So use the feature to its fullest! Speaking of comments, the link to the comment section of a specific post from the main page is no longer at the bottom. The link is now in the upper right of the post in the form of a little speech bubble, which includes the current number of comments within that thread. Click the speech bubble to join in on the discussion.
Social media. The individual pages for the RowThree media sites (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) can be found at the top of the page in text only format – rather than the gaudy, obtrusive icons that once plagued the site. If you’re looking to help promote RowThre, find us on those pages and friend us, like us, kiss us, digg us, Tweet us, poke us or whatever it is that particular site might do. Of course we’re all about readers helping us out with spreading the word, so if you find a particular article you’d like to share with the world, click on the article’s title and then look for the sharing icons on the left hand side. You can auto-share to the internet’s more popular social media sites using those buttons.
I can’t think of much else to mention. It’s pretty much the same site, but without the fugly (hopefully). Once again, we’re so appreciative to everyone who stops by – especially those that take the time to leave their thoughts and get into filmatic discussion in the various comment threads. If there’s anything that needs looking into, tweaking or outright not working properly, again, let us know immediately in the comment section for this post or just shoot us an email. We’ll try to get it fixed up as soon as possible.
