Spring Has Sprung – And Scoop Gets A Facelift!

Spring is the season of renewal. And Scoop, as you will know, is constantly listening to its readers, as well as pondering the significance of the seasons, and weather.

Over the past few months many of you have expressed views on how we might improve navigation of the Scoop site. Your ideas have now been incorporated into a major upgrade to the Scoop interface design which went live today.

See…

http://www.scoop.co.nz/

Key improvements to the new design include:

- a new front-page which is continuously updated as soon as new items are posted to the site – the new front page displays the five most recent headlines from each of 11 Scoop wires;
- a new navigation system which is no longer frames based;
- two new front-page search boxes, one connected to the existing Scoop search engine - and a second powered Google - the world’s most popular search engine (also used by Yahoo!);
- a realignment of the Scoop wires to better reflect the expanded range of Scoop coverage and make navigation simpler and more consistent;
- a more consistent display format for Scoop’s feature pages – now all accessible via a new Features section;
- a new My Scoop section improving access to Scoop’s customiseable news-by-email services;

Scoop invites its users to have a look at the new Scoop design – if you haven’t already done so.

We also encourage you - if our improvements are to your liking - to assign Scoop as your home page.

To view the new Scoop design simply visit Scoop at:

Scoop would like to express its enormous gratitude to the following people for their considerable efforts in implementing the new design:

- Andrew McNaughton – Scoop’s technical director;
- Miles Thompson – assistant technical director and general trouble-shooter;
- Douglas Bagnall – designer.

Finally, if you have any problems with the new design please contact us at editor@scoop.co.nz as we will be continuing to improve it over the next few months.

In the spirit of renewal

Scoop 3.0 Update & Membership Sale: The End Of ‘Objectivity’ In Journalism

2019 looks like it might well be another really bad, terrible, not so good year for the traditional journalism model globally... on the positive side, smaller independent players with innovative digital models and a more open approach like our ScoopPro service look likely to be more relevant than ever.

Gordon Campbell: On America’s ‘Green New Deal’

‘Socialism’ is more of a political scare word than an objective condition. Even in the US, as Nate Silver’s 538 website pointed out this week there is polling evidence that modern Americans are inclined to treat socialism as meaning ‘equality’ rather than the ‘government ownership or control’ that Americans understood the term to mean back in the 1940s...

Gordon Campbell: On The Nelson Fire And Climate Change

The Nelson fire has been a useful warning of things to come, given how climate change will (a) increase the likelihood of reduced rainfall and drought-like conditions in many parts of New Zealand, which – obviously – will raise (b) the fire danger and (c) the cost of providing the communities at risk with the enhanced firefighting capabilities that they’re going to need.
