We've Made A Few Small Changes To Make Navigating Easier

As part of the ongoing effort to make Jalopnik (and all the other sites in the Kinja universe) more navigable and easier to use we're introducing a more cohesive "global navigation" that's launching first here as a test to make sure it actually works. » 9/10/14 3:06pm 9/10/14 3:06pm

Pending Replies Are Back And Should Solve Some Problems

As you may have realized, it's impossible at the moment to upload rich media like photos in the comments. This sucks and is because some people on the Internet are dicks. Thankfully, tech has a solution to this that'll also help with the spam problem: Pending Replies are back. » 8/15/14 11:57am 8/15/14 11:57am

What Gawker Media Is Doing About Our Rape Gif Problem

On Monday, we posted an open letter to the management of Gawker Media, our parent company, regarding an ongoing problem that we here at Jezebel could no longer tolerate: horribly violent rape gifs that were consistently appearing in our comments. For months, we asked Gawker Media HQ for help with the trolling — but… » 8/13/14 11:10am 8/13/14 11:10am

Thanks to everyone for being cool about the slight tweaks we've had to make following the attack on our network. They've mostly worked on Jalopnik but I can't promise we've plugged all the leaks yet, I can just promise a bunch of smart people who haven't slept are working on it. » 8/13/14 4:19am 8/13/14 4:19am

Introducing Invites, A New Feature We Just Added To Jalopnik

We're going to continue to roll out new features on the site designed to encourage conversation, and one of the projects I've most been excited about has just been added to Jalopnik.

We've fixed what, to me, was the biggest flaw with the version of Webchats we rolled out last week by making the "all replies" threaded and not just random chronological replies. Thoughts? » 3/05/14 11:12am 3/05/14 11:12am

The Next Iteration Of Kinja Is Live On Jalopnik

As you may have noticed, things look a bit different around here. The next iteration of Kinja and webchats is live on Jalopnik for you to play around with. Many of the changes will be minor and seamless, a few are more structural and obvious. » 2/25/14 1:05pm 2/25/14 1:05pm

I'll Probably Switch The Site Over To The New Design Tomorrow

I had a few requests for the people developing the next iteration of Kinja (called 'Tiger' internally) before I agreed this site over to it, based on a mix of my own experiences and on your responses to Nick Denton's product posts. I'm happy enough with the results to probably flip the switch tomorrow morning. » 2/24/14 9:45pm 2/24/14 9:45pm

Everyone Welcome Doug DeMuro To Jalopnik And Glimpse The Future

The benefit of having a huge network of commenters and contributors like Kinja is that the talent has a hard time hiding, which is why so many Jalopnik writers and editors got their start in our comments. Gawker has a plan to make this process even easier and I'm proud to announce Doug DeMuro will be our first… » 2/18/14 3:35pm 2/18/14 3:35pm

An Explanation Of Today's Kinja Changes + New Tools

One of my favorite tools that we've had as editors that you didn't have as a reader is the ability to not just share a post, but share it with your own personal spin. Alas, one of the changes coming soon is the ability to do just that. Read on for an update. » 10/03/13 9:52am 10/03/13 9:52am
