Every now and then, one of us at Car Talk Plaza will wake up and do something useful. Now is one of those moments.
It’s time for an update!
Later tonight east coast time, we’ll launch a new version of the Car Talk web site. The new Car Talk site features a much cleaner look, and is fully responsive. Meaning, it will play nicely with your desktop computer, your laptop, your phone, your tablet, your… you get the picture. Literally. The new site has been six months in the work, and we’ve had to update a variety of our content. Older, less-visited features have been dropped, too.
The Car Talk Community will be largely unaffected by this change. The only difference you’ll notice is a new ad unit, which appear when you first visit the Community. Once you close it, you won’t see it again for another 24 hours. Please bear with us— advertising is vital to covering the costs of the site. We’re working with NPR and deepen our relationship with underwriters and ad networks, so the ads are as relevant as possible.
Once the new responsive site is launched, we’ll tidy things up for the ensuing month or so. Then, later this spring, we’ll continue to tap into some of the more powerful aspects of our new community platform. Stay tuned for more info on this front.
Message me or post below you have questions or suggestions. I can’t always reply quickly or to every note, but I’ll do my best.
And as always, thanks for your continued time here. For those loyal CTC’er who have been here for years, thanks for your hard work for our community visitors with questions.
