We launched a new site design for Evanston Now on Thursday.

Hope you like it!

The new design provides a lot more flexibility in how we present news stories. It also should make the site’s content display more quickly – especially on mobile devices.

As we get used to the new system ourselves, we’ll likely be more venturesome in exploring the new design’s capabilities than what you may see on the site right away.

Along with the new design, we’ve also switched to a new system for handling reader comments on stories, so that all readers, not just site members, can submit them.

We ask that you follow our comment guidelines when you submit comments and note that all comments will be moderated before going live.

If you have thoughts about the new design, you can also reach me through our contact form.

The goal of our comment policy is to make the comments section a vibrant yet civil space. Treat each other with respect — even the people you disagree with. Whenever possible, provide links to credible documentary evidence to back up your factual claims.
