VHL Mag Refresh

 

If you’ve been paying attention lately, you would have noticed a long-running section of the VHL site has been absent for the past season or so. I am, of course, referring to the VHL Mag. It was put on hiatus to re-structure after the last editor stepped down but it shall be returning very soon, likely during the off-season. So what is that re-structure?

 

Well, part 1 is a new editor. After showing intense interest in the job, @BluObieZ has officially been hired as the mag editor. His job will, however, be different than it has been in the past because of the further changes the mag is undergoing.

 

The formal “magazine” contained within a PDF and posted on dropbox will henceforth be no more. Instead, the mag will be posted as the news articles within the VHL Portal. @solas will remain on staff to supply the images for the articles which will be posted on a daily basis rather than in a weekly issue. Robbie’s job will be to post the articles as well as edit the content of them for grammatical and factual errors.

 

More changes will be coming in the future but we wanted to officially announce this first in order to share this exciting way we will be using the portal to bring content that has long been on the site back.

 

Job postings for mag writers will likely be going up soon (though former writers are welcome to their spots back) in order to fill some extra spots to keep your eyes peeled for those.

Not bad. Hope Solas can handle it. Grats @BluObieZ

To be fair it’s more images but doesn’t need cutouts or text. So long as articles (or at least their themes) are provided early enough he should have no issues supplying the header images.

The portal received a minor update today in preparation for the return of the VHL Magazine to change the home screen to what I hope is a better method of displaying articles. I also added a power ranking to the home page which is completely useless atm but may be handy for regular season. 

 

Let me know if anyone has any other suggestions for the home page

Just a minor suggestion, for the power ranking, it’s probably better to go off Point%, so you don’t have a team with more points but worse records sitting at the top

 

Not sure that will be a issue with the way our schedule works? generally most teams have the same GP

 

that what you mean?

Kinda...on the portal home page right now it has a power ranking with New York at the top even though they went 5-7 in the playoffs
