- Booster Gold
Monday, April 2, 2018
This is not an April Fools joke. Boosterrific.com really has gotten a facelift for 2018!
Arg! Change is bad! Why did I do it? The last significant site redesign was nearly a decade ago, and people don't use the Internet in the same way in 2018 as they did in 2010. (For one thing, no one capitalizes the word "Internet" anymore.)
While I was beginning to feel that the site was looking a little stale, the chief purpose of this overhaul was twofold:
to allow smartphone users greater access to the site. Previously, mobile devices only had access to a specially designed portal. Now every page should render in the narrower smartphone viewport, including the individual comic pages.
to prepare for future changes. As I mentioned two weeks ago, Google's announcement of big changes to how they intend to police and present the web to its customers has me contemplating the best path forward. I don't know exactly what Google's changes are going to do to site traffic, but I do know that I wanted this aging site to be nimble enough to survive whatever hunger games Google sets off.
As always, thank you for your patience as I work through this site overhaul. There are definitely still some bugs to work out and some site functionality has yet to be fully restored (like the next/last issue buttons for the comics details pages). If you stumble across something that doesn't seem to be working to your satisfaction, please drop me a line. The contact form is working fine, and you can always send an email to webmaster at Boosterrific.com.
Thank you to everyone who has ever visited. You have all contributed to making Boosterrific.com the Internet's greatest Booster Gold archive.
