This weeks question of the week is another meta one, this time from Jeff Atwood!
Great job on the blog! After a call today with Ivo, we decided that the Super User Blog is now sufficiently awesome to be highlighted in the footer! You’ll note that the blog link in the Super User footer now points to
Awesome! With that we’ve been busily working on moving over from superuser.blogoverflow.com to the blog.superuser.com, which has kept us pretty busy. Some new things to look for in the coming future:
- Question of the Week every week
- Continued reviews of differing products
- Interviews with spot light users like you!
- And so much more!
If you have any suggestions for the blog, or would like to contribute yourself hop on over to the official SU blog chat room or you can email me at:
Also, you’ve probably noticed some new ‘ads’ on the side of the Super User interface:
This is a new feature that Jeff and the team have put together called community promotion ads:
What in the Wide, Wide World of Sports is Going On Here?TL;DR — put images and links in the answers. If they get voted up enough, they will appear on the main site as community promotion ads.
But whyyyyyyy?This is a method for the community to control what gets promoted to visitors on the site. For example, you might promote the following things:
The goal is for future visitors to find out about the stuff your community deems important. And to click on it for great justice!
- cool desktop apps
- the site’s twitter account
- scripts packs or power tools
- cool events or conferences
- anything else your community would genuinely be interested in
So there you have, if you’ve got a common program that you use, go promote it and if it gets enough up votes you’ll start seeing it on the side of the SU site!
