Our Week In The Web: August 14, 2015

This article is more than 5 years old.

It might feel redundant to repost an earlier (and mostly unsuccessful) call for audience input on the way our site is built, but we're doing it! Last week, we wanted your thoughts on how our site is constructed — what you like, what you don't like and where we need improvement. We received a few helpful notes and comments (thanks to those of you who weighed in!), but we still want to know what you think. So tell us! We're in the process of a redesign — more to come on that — and your input is just as important as our analysis of your anonymized behavior on our site. So email us at OnPointNPR AT gmail DOT com, or let us know in the comments below, on Facebook, Tumblr and @OnPointRadio. And thanks!
