In advance of this year’s ISA convention and the OAIS awards, we’re happy to launch a new and improved Duck of Minerva with a revamped look and feel. You will notice automatically a direct link to duckofminerva.com which should make access more straightforward. The new site is also responsive so will resize automatically on your phone or tablet. We’ve also added a new set of topics to classify posts by subject so you can find them easily. The Twitter feed and blogroll have been updated.
We wanted to thank permanent contributors Robert Kelly and Vikash Yadav who have decided to step down. In addition, we wanted to thank a number of guest contributors, Edward Carpenter, Adrienne Le Bas, Burcu Bayram, PM, and Cynthia Weber who are cycling off. We will be bringing some new guest contributors on so be on the lookout for more news on that front. Special thanks to Lori Lacy from mod.girl.designs for carrying out the web redesign.
Thanks again for your readership and contributions to the blog, which we hope continues to provide an eclectic source of analysis on all things international and political and beyond in 2015.
I welcome the new Duck! Looks great and I’m excited about the future. A possible technical issue is that old comments aren’t showing up for me. (OSX 10.10.2, Macbook, Chrome, if it helps.) Not sure if this is just part of the migration of if it’s an intentional break from the past, but I went looking for a source in an old comment and couldn’t access. Anyway, thought I’d bring it to your attention.
Will look into it thanks!
Can you flag the post for me? I see comments on old posts so wonder if it’s a particular post.
I can see comments on newer posts just fine, but it seems like they’ve disappeared for most posts that are older. Just to take one: https://www.duckofminerva.com/2012/04/winceoff-vs-nexon-cage-match.html
FWIW I’m having the same issue (also on OSX and Chrome). I can see the number of comments at the top of the post, but not any of the actual comments.
Beyond that, the new layout looks excellent!
