Portal Closing Down :(

Hi guys,

On June 20th, we're going to be shutting down the jnPortal and retiring it from service. We made this decision for a few reasons.

For one, it's really not very useful anymore apart from the dailies list to the right. All of the other information can be easily found on JN within a few different clicks.

We also came to the conclusion that if we want to make the portal useful, we'd need to put in a lot of work codewise. This just is not worth it, because only about 1,000 people visit the portal a day, versus 10,000 for our JN main site. We'd much rather spend this summer working on cool new features instead of revamping an old feature that only a very small fraction of our users use.

It's also such an old clunker of code (JN's first big feature back in January 2005!) that it isn't working well with how our news and such is set up to work across all of JN. So, for all of those reasons, we decided it'd just be best to shut the jnPortal down and make it a fond memory instead of a constant headache. :P

Here are some useful links to the JN mainsite that show you the information the portal shows:

We hope you can see our logic behind this decision, and that you'll understand why we're doing this.

Update: Well, you guys are really attached to this ugly thing, so we're going to compensate. :) By next weekend, I plan on putting up a new page on JN with all of the daily information the portal had... but in a more condensed form on the main JN site. It'll have dailies, the daily puzzle, etc. I'll get it up before closing off the portal for good. :)
