No, you're not losing it: Patch looks different today. We did a quick visual makeover to the homepage to make it more user-friendly. And we've moved a couple pieces of furniture.
For those keeping score:
• We tweaked some words in our navigation bar to save space (e.g., "Traffic & Gas" is now "Commute," "Places" is now "Directory")
• We moved the weather icon next to the Patch branding so you can find it more quickly
• We moved, well, YOU closer to the top. (Our "shout stream" is now front and center so you can see what people are commenting on and talking about.)
• And of course we made a few things more visually appealing.
While the site might look a little different today, we still offer the same coverage of everything happening in your Patch community. That was, is, and will always be our mission. We hope you'll let us know what you think of our tweaks— or offer a comment below!
