ICN was set up back in 2000, and now although our audience has increased to millions of unique viewers every year - the design of ICN hasn't really changed. In the past couple of years in particular our audience has risen to almost 45% from mobile devices like iPhones and iPads, which the site is not currently designed for. Text is very small & navigating it is a very slow process.
As of tomorrow around midday, we've redesigned the site to solve these issues. The new design will be much more readable on mobile devices, look much more up-to-date & load much faster than the current one - although to put your mind at ease; all of the news categories, links, listings, and all other content will still be there in the same places they're at now - this is a purely aesthetic change to improve your experience of ICN.
If you have any concerns over the new site - whether it be that you don't like how it looks or you're not sure how to find something, anything like that - please don't hesitate to get in touch!
There is a 'Contact' page linked in the header which you can use to contact us directly; we'll be keeping a very close eye on this for the next couple of weeks, so we welcome your feedback and opinions! Alternatively you're welcome to contact us via Twitter or our other social media:
We hope you enjoy the new site, and are very happy to improve it based on your feedback. If you don't like something, we'll do our very best to fix it!
- ICN Development Team.
Editor's note - Please say a prayer that it all goes smoothly!
