Announcing the Mind Games Super Secret Sale, and Other Site News
You might recall awhile back we ran a “Thoughtseize” poll asking your opinion on several possible improvements to the site. Over the past three years that we’ve been helping represent Magic’s preconstructed community, we’ve continued to try and refine the Ertai’s Lament experience as we go, both in content as well as layout. Today we’d like to let you in on some of the exciting things that are in development, including some big changes in the works!
Sitenotes: What do the ads look like to you?
Hey folks, just wanting to get a little more feedback on the ads. One of our readers mentioned that there’s a pop-up video that takes over their whole screen whenever the visit the site now, and that’s a cause for concern.
Sitenotes: The Advertising on Ertai’s Lament
Awhile back, we kicked off an experiment to see whether or not it would be feasible to run advertising on the site. We’d been approached by WordPress to see if we wanted to participate, and as you may have noticed a couple of ads have appeared here and there as you navigate about. We ran a poll to get your feedback, and have had some time to digest the results.
Welcome to the New Ertai’s Lament
By now you might have noticed that we’ve gotten a bit of a facelift! Upgrading our appearance and functionality have been an ongoing project for us, and we hope you enjoy the new easier-to-read layout. We’ll continue to improve the site, with the eventual goal of getting self-hosted so we can have pop-up card links like all the fancy sites. But in the meantime, have a look around and let us know what you think. We’ll still continue to bring you the same content as before… and tomorrow we lead off with a review of the Innistrad Event Decks!
Good morning! Three very brief notes today.
1. Zac Hill, a member of the design team for Duel Decks: Elspeth vs Tezzeret, has posted a very interesting article about the design for it on the mothership- take a look!
2. Those who like to keep up with new columns and updates on their favourite blogs will be happy to note that Ertai’s Lament now makes this functionality easier than ever! Check out the subscription box just over on the right-hand margin.
3. And finally, anniversary giveaway winner (and frequent commentator) troacctid had this to say about his recent good fortune:
Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for all the insights you offer in the comments, troacctid!
That’s all for now, we’ll be back tomorrow with the next installment of our Scars of Mirrodin deck reviews as we take Phyrexian Poison onto the battlefield!
