Well, we made a few changes over the weekend! Over the last few months we’ve been working on correcting some glitches and modernizing the site. Like many readers, I find change to be painful. Having said that, I also know when change is necessary. The site badly needed an upgrade. (Folks who had issues searching neighborhoods, restaurants, etc will know what I’m talking about.) The new site will correct those issues and make reading on hand held devices (especially cell phones) much much easier. Of course we are still ironing out a few kinks so if you have any problems please let us know in the comments here or even better let me know via email at princepetworth(at)gmail(dot)com. You may have noticed that you will require a new log in but it’s really easy. All you have to do is reset your password. For anyone having problems signing in – we can help you here. Though of course, you can still comment without registering if you prefer.

You will notice we ditched the classifieds – not enough folks were using to it to justify the massive maintenance it required. However, the forum is still live in a slightly more basic format. Additionally the events page has been simplified so if you’d like to feature an event you can it add it yourself here.

We will likely be working out a few remaining issues over the coming days so, again, don’t hesitate to let me know if you are having any problems. At the end of the day, the site hasn’t changed too much, it’ll still be the place to easily find all your neighborhood news. Plus you can now easily search neighborhoods by viewing the horizontal gray bar on top of the first post. In this gray bar you can also search by topic as well. And in the upper left hand corner you can now sign up for email updates too. Thanks again for your patience while we finalize the upgrades!
