With Poll: Patch Look Gets a 'Refresh'

You may notice a few changes to how our site looks today – we've done a little 'nip and tuck' to make it more user-friendly. What do you think?

No, you're not losing it! Patch looks different today. We did a quick visual nip-and-tuck to the homepage to make it even more user-friendly. And we've moved a couple pieces of furniture. For those keeping score: 

  • We tweaked some words in our navigation bar to save space (e.g., "Traffic & Gas" is now "Commute") 
  • We moved the weather icon next to the Patch branding so you can find it more quickly! 
  • We moved, well, YOU closer to the top! (Our "shout stream" is now front and center to show all your comments off.) 
  • And of course we prettified a few things. 

While the site might look a little different today, we still offer the same robust coverage of everything happening in your community. That was, is, and will always be our mission. We hope you'll let us know what you think of our tweaks. It's important to us that your experience with the site is as clear and easy as possible.

This is a really different look from when we first started... it's SO weird to look at the site and not see a ton of green!
