Ask your questions about the new site here!

It’s 5am here, and we’ve just finished relaunching the site. Initial reactions seems to be about 50/50, which we anticipated, but give it some time and we think most of you will love the changes.


We’re headed home now, but thought I’d be one of the first to use our new feature and answer any questions you have in regards to the new site, whether it be posting, features, or anything else on your mind. Will answer the questions first thing in the morning, or afternoon depending on when I wake up.


On a side note, discussions should mainly be kpop related, except in this case! We’ll get a full guide started shortly.

    So I made a looong comment about my thoughts on the changes, then I clicked Submit and it disappeared. How nice. Since this one seems to work, I'll make it short. The only good change is getting rid of the anonymous trolls in the comments. The new design, the format of the comment section and the upvote/downvote system seem like a major downgrade. Letting random people create their own posts changes your status from the news site into a forum, especially since it's hard to say which post was made by the staff. It will be hard to make it work in the Kpop community with all the fanwars and the new/less known artists will suffer. I'll give myself a break from your site for a while and see if you can make it work in the future, but for now off to Soompi we go.

    Please at least make it clear, with an icon or something, which posts are from staff. I come here mostly to check for comeback dates and I want to be able to find actual, researched articles on my favorite groups.
