When we launched the new GoComics beta last month, we were that special kind of nervous you get watching your favorite people opening a present. The site was designed with our creators, their work, and your experience in mind, after all. We wanted you to enjoy it and our unblinking eyes needed to see how we did.
Here a month later, we have a strong impression of your strong impression. We've heard what you love, what you... less than love, what you'd like to see and what you can do without altogether. Many of our predictions were validated, some ongoing challenges were underscored, and more than a few unanticipated opportunities arose. In short, it's a great place to be during a beta testing phase.
Your comments, e-mails, social media reactions and survey responses have been essential, shaping our strategy for every corner of the site. There's more work to be done before we launch in early 2017 -- and well into the life of the new site -- but thanks to your feedback, we're confident that we'll deliver a beautiful, intuitive user experience that's a pleasure to come back to every day.
So thank you, thank you, thank you.
2017 is going to be an amazing year.
And in the meantime, don't forget to take the GoComics beta survey if you haven't yet, to make sure we hear your thoughts.
