Crossing Zebras 3.1Niden
Ever since the launch of Crossing Zebras 3.0 we have been getting a lot of feedback from the community about the design. The main issues revolved around readability and responsive design that affected smaller display sizes and mobile platforms. We have taken what you, our readers, have said to heart and come up with a new design that we hope addresses your concerns and main pain points. We’re still working out some of the kinks, so bear with us.
We appreciate the feedback, and are sorry that it took a while for us to act on some of it. CZ 3.0 was in process for over a year due to the complexity of the overhaul, and as volunteers with full time jobs rather than employees of a business, sometimes CZ has to take a back seat to other priorities in our lives. We’re committed, as always, to engaging with the community and greatly appreciate your feedback, whether shared with us through firstname.lastname@example.org or via reddit or twitter.
You will notice that we have a new segmentation on the start page, this should allow for better readability and an easier overview. We have also updated our colour scheme with some softer tones, again to improve readability, along with an array of smaller fixes that you probably won’t notice. At the very bottom of the page, you will see some customisation options that will allow you to change how CZ looks and maximise readability according to your preference. Again, there are still a few things that need to be tweaked (as you may notice) and we hope to have those fixed today.
As we launch this updated version of CZ, we ask that you keep telling us what you think. It is important to us and the future of CZ. We have no illusions about getting it 100% right this time either, but hopefully you agree that it is a step in the right direction.
As always, we appreciate if you make an effort to be as constructive and specific in your feedback as possible.
