    Phoronix: Phoronix Premium, Site Improvements Land

    A number of small site improvements were made on Monday. Subscribers to Phoronix Premium should also find that the log-in process is easier...

    The improvements are welcome.

    I, for one, would recommend against delaying content for non-subscribers. I am a subscriber, but I still don't think that's the right thing to do.

    If enabled, the delay would be for a couple hours, if that. Most content is posted as soon as it's written, but will often write some articles a few hours in advance to cover times when I am sleeping or not in front of computer.

    "After once logging into the forums on the new system, your premium account should remain logged in for the day on our main web-site."

    Does it mean that I still have to login to the forum every day? WHY???
    Do you know it will still not work for RSS readers such a way?

    Oh my, has hell finally frozen over? Being subscriber for several years now I surely welcome that - if it works. Once per day though... well. It's the small steps that count, right?

    I guess that's an improvement. It also shows the number of comments on the article page now. Nice.

    Finally
    Although forum visits once a day are still very frequent. Make that a week and you've got yourself a deal

    This. I'm a premium subscriber as well, and coming from a link in the RSS feed, I *still* have to open a forum tab to remove ads / enable single page articles. So this *fix* is pretty much useless for me

    That's the reason I stopped my subscription in the fist place.
