The moment you've all been waiting for has arrived! We've found someone to take over some of the subsections of the site, and get them updated. The first page that's been updated is the Screenshots page. A huge thank you goes out to Michael Hendy who will be maintaining both the screenshots page and the Fetch Builds page, which should be updated later this week.
Along with this, we're doubling down on our efforts to post timely news and keep you better informed of what's happening. As part of this effort, we're continuing to work on getting general discussion forums set up, and hope to have that done soon.
In other site news, our poll asking you about Mozilla news sites was pulled down today, after having someone skew the results by voting 200 times for one site (us. We know we've been slacking a bit of late, but not that badly :). We'll be working on getting better polling software, and will put a new poll up when that is taken care of. Stay Tuned.
#2 Thanks from asa

Thanks guys for jumping on this. I see you used a couple of my shots ;)
While we're discussing the changes to the site I thought I'd mentions some changes I'm testing at the BuildBar comments. I experimented with the strikethrough in bug numbers for fixed bugs but since this time I didn't mention any open bugs the value was lost. I suspect it's not worth the damage to legibility so I'll probably discontinue unless I hear otherwise from you all. Also, I'm thinking about dropping the title= attibute for bug numbers. I added that because I thought people would be happy not having to go to Bugzilla for every number to see what it was but it's the most time consuming part of doing the comments and no one seemed to notice when I added it. If no one is using the bug numbers I can save a lot of time (that translates into how regularly I update the buildbar) by not including actual bug numbers and moving to just briefly describing the fixes. I need to hear some imput to move forward. It's been a year and a half and a lot of updates with very little input from the people that use it. If there is other information you'd like me to include in the comments please let me know. (mozillaZine staff are working on talkback for buildbar so don't ask me for that. it's out of my domain).
Thanks also to the few of you that come to IRC with comments. It makes it a lot easier to do the update when people help out.
