An increasingly disappointing Jordan Planet

As much as I appreciate all the efforts of Isam Bayazidi and a few other bloggers in establishing and taking care of Jordan Planet, it seems the quality of the front page is detoriorating, in my humble opinion at least.

First, it was the omitting all the pictures from the front page. It made the planet less colorful and less exciting to read.

We used to have a section for Highlights of the week, I actually was not sure what it was for but it seems that the most popular threads discussed in the blogs were placed there.

Now one cannot view the blogs participating in Jordan Planet. I'm not sure if this is a technical error or a decision taken by the administration, but I'm pretty sure if it was the latter that it won't be popular among any bloggers.

JP is not only for bloggers to read, it's for all Jordanians, and the front page does not seem appealing at all. It looks just like a "copy and paste" from some Jordanian blogs. I hope something will be done to make it look better.

I hope my criticism will be seen as a constructive one.

Feras,
Add to that that since mid-June more than 60 blog addition requests were made, and none was handled. Sho had! ba6alt al3ab...

I agree with all your points above, and my answer will be "wait and see, walla '3air nwarjeekom" :)
