Hey, you! The Kinja Help staff has created a new community group blog, Community. Check out this incredible post on Kinja Community!
Hi All - the updates are fairly brief this week as the team has been focused on behind the scenes work:
Hi All - the big news this week of course is the release of our new Global Navigation which is now live across the whole Kinja network. Overall the feedback from users has been very positive, in particular the vastly improved mobile experience. We're keeping track of all the feedback and we'll be making improvements…
An open platform for collaborative, iterative and sustainable media: that's how we have defined Kinja. But collaboration between whom? Realizing our vision requires an undivided focus on the needs of our core users. And first we need to identify them clearly. So here goes.
We're very excited to introduce the new global navigation for Kinja.
Hi All - keeping it short and sweet today, please see updates below, enjoy your Labor Day weekend:
Earlier this year, I set a traffic goal for the Gawker Media Network of 80 million U.S. uniques, to be achieved by the end of the year. I'm pig-in-shitted to announce that as of today, Gawker Media has crossed that line, bringing in 81.3 million U.S. uniques over the last 30 days, as part of a greater 126.8 million…
We're introducing an update to pending replies that blurs images until you choose to see them. Update: This is now live across Kinja!
The Kinja Help team has seen some fine people come and go, and last week we added a great new member to the family.
Hi All, apologies for the 2 week gap in weekly updates, the NY Tech team made the annual pilgrimage to Budapest to spend time with our Hungarian crew (who proved to be far better hosts than we are).
If you're a reader of the Gawker Media properties, you're likely aware of the problem we've been having with graphic content.
Hi All - welcome to the weekly Tech Wrap-Up. I just wanted to quickly address site stability over the last few weeks, and questions such as "Why the hell is Tech doing a server maintenance during the day?", "Why do the sites crash every time they do a maintenance?". A couple of weeks ago we had some hardware fail in…
Hi All - please see below this weeks Tech Wrap-Up
I'm improving the image handling feature in the editor for more than a month now. After a lot of hard work it's finally starting to get it's final form. It Improves the speed of typing when you have a lot of images, It has a cleaner markup, out of the box supports drag'n drop, linking and copy/paste. So I can…
Hi All - welcome to this week's Tech Wrap-Up. We've been making some great strides on fixing issues over the last couple of weeks and I hope you're starting to see the improvements in the Editor.
Here's a list of keyboard shortcuts supported by Kinja, because you're a power user and you deserve it.
Hi All - welcome to our very first Weekly Tech Team Wrap-up! I joined the Gawker Tech Team last month as Director of Program Management and one of my responsibleness is to give everyone more visibility into what we're up to.
Beginning on the evening of Wednesday June 4, we began receiving reports of Error 200 OK pages across Gawker Media home pages, mostly on Gawker and Gizmodo. On Thursday, several other sites began experiencing the issue; Kotaku, io9, and Jalopnik.
Over the past few months, we of the Gawker Tech Team have put a ton of work into improving site performance and stability. If you don't recall seeing much evidence at all of the latter, you're right: we're only just now at the point of our time investment starting to pay off. More about that in a subsequent post! This…
We never supported this solution for creating a group blog, however we didn’t actively discourage its use either. If the merge method of creating a group blog no longer works, we will not fix it. There is some light at the end of the tunnel though, as we are tossing around the idea of opening group blog creation to…
