I'm kind of in love with Chaos


Like many of you, I was highly skeptical of the recent changes to the community blogs as they were being implemented. It was all so seemingly sporadic and not communicated well (which, let's be honest, is kind of the Dtoid way <3), and despite Tom getting in there and (in my opinion) doing a good job of answering questions and concerns from cbloggers, there was a lot of turmoil for a week or so there, and understandably so.

But now that the dust has settled, I'm really liking some of the changes. This is especially true of the so-called "Chaos Mode."

For those not sure what I'm talking about, clicking the Community Remix button at the top of the post feed of any of the main Dtoid pages will take you to a new feed that shows all posts on Dtoid in one big mess. (Meaning front page posts from staff, normal cblogs, and the new quickposts.) While it took me a while to get used to it, now that I've gotten the feel for it I can't go back. Seeing community posts intermixed with the standard news posts and reviews is refreshing and fun, and I feel like it's taken community engagement and interaction to a whole new level. It's like a much more personal and catered Twitter feed, where I can see what fellow Dtoiders are eating for lunch or know when they are pooping as I read the latest headlines and peruse editorials and reviews from the community. I love it.

Give it a shot and see if you do, too! At the very least, you'll know the next time I'm pooping, which is something everyone needs in their lives.
