Some flesh on the bones of our decision not to change the VFYW daily posts. One writes:
Please do not post the “where and when” for non-contest photos after the jump. I love VFYW and the contest, but once a week is good enough. It remains fresh this way. I enjoy the daily views, but part of the enjoyment of reading your blog is the ability to skim through quickly and grab what information I desire. But I’ll quickly grow disinterested in VFYW if you make me read the jump every time.
I prefer it the old way. The drop-down option would be a great alternative.
Please go back to the old way. I think we all can use our vertical scroll bars to prevent us from seeing the location. I really, really don’t want to click again on the blog more than I have to, especially since The Atlantic has added those motion-filled ads in the upper right. Those have really slowed down the loading of the blog for me.
VFYW is one of my favorite parts to your blog and I just take simple joy in looking at the picture and noting the location. While I wouldn’t want to deny anybody from “playing the game,” I know I probably won’t click through (as your site for some reason is slow going in my office), so my experience of VFYW diminishes somewhat by burying the location.
Click throughs = annoying
We’ll keep pushing for the drop-down option.
