Sneak peek at your future Cblogs Upgrade


In the next few weeks your blog will get a minor cosmetic update, but a major underlying CSS improvement. This is mostly in part to help us load faster on iOS 9 devices and Android Marshmellow, and also gets our code organized enough to let us do more interesting things with article layouts (planned for March).  Huge thanks to Raul, who designed and coded these. Peep it:

Example 1: User's  home page

Example 2: User's individual post

The major design change here is that we're adopting Twitter's post counts instead of small tabs for subsections of user content, and hopefully make it easier for people to get and track their followers (and who follows them).  This concept has long-since been vague on Dtoid so hopefully by straight up copying the #1 who gets it right it will become easier to use.  As you can also see, quickposts by an individual are more broken out (note: these links are hosted on a personal site so the speed is not reflective of Destructoid's beefy hosting service, and where it says "posts" it will read "blogs" instead)

What do you think of the update?  Let us know. 

- It takes a lot to make a stew

About Niero Gonzalezone of us since 9:58 PM on 03.16.2006

I keep Destructoid weird. Also I'm a playable character in Retro City Rampage, look:

(along with the whole 2009 Dtoid Editorial team)

Sometimes I have a villainous mustache

My dog CoCo checks all my work for bugs:

I live in Japan sometimes.

Sometimes I do volunteer stuff between gigs:

My advice to people who want to work in videogames is to just start doing the work, even if you do it incredibly poorly at first, until it just happens.

You want to be a writer?

Write daily. Eventually, you become a writer. Don't overthink it, that's all there is to it.

Live your dream! You only have one ticket, you may as well go for it. When I founded this site in 2006 everybody told me there were already too many gaming websites and it would never happen for me. I ended up selling the site to Enthusiast Gaming and now I help run the biggest gaming convention in Toronto, and continue to work on this site, which reaches millions a month. Basically fuck whatever people think - work hard everyday and don't take no for an answer.

The most important lesson I learned as an adult is that everybody's faking it at their job - and faking it better than everyone else is who gets the job. Also, be nice.
