A redesignPosted: March 15, 2008, 00:16:33
A redesign of www.stephenking.com is in the making and earlier today this mail was sent out to the members of the official message board:
As those of you who frequent the Message Board know, we have been hinting for several months that the web site is going through its second major redesign. A lot has changed since the site first rolled out over a decade ago and version 3 is going to blow your socks off! Because of the sheer volume of material we will be offering and the complexity of the interactive features that are being designed, we will be launching the site in stages. The new Message Board was the first of those changes to go live but even that has new features in development. To whet your appetite for what's to come, here are a few of the changes you'll be seeing in the months ahead:
Big things are coming...
