I am very happy that the PPD nerds continue to strive forward into the 21st century. The switch from MT to WP was a fine platform choice and the chosen design is quite lovely. A certain DIY aspect was lost however with the new banner submission process.
I’ll detail my complaints in order:
- The Perfect Duluth Day logo will be added by PDD’s art department.
- You will not be notified if your photo has been accepted or rejected.
Personally, the best part banner making is choosing where the PDD logo goes, how it blends into and becomes part of the photo, etc. Also I really enjoyed the immediate thrill of seeing the banner live immediately after posting. I can think of many times I sat there and refreshed my browser until I’d see my submission.
I would wholeheartedly enjoy a re-thinking of this policy. Perhaps the addition of the logo by the artist could be allowed yet approval still required? My $0.02. As always, keep up the good work, staffers.
