I'm happy to announce that a new version of Japanator is in the works, and will soon be consuming the old site. We've not changed much: simply removed some clutter, improved the blogging system, made it load faster, and integrated a few new features like an improved comments system (you won't need two separate accounts anymore) and more customizable profile pages. We will import all of your old comments once we move to this new system. We've also added better mobile support, and a tablet version will soon be on the way.
While the beta still has a few known kinks (old photos are scaled funky, the editor avatars are cropped, some story photos are missing) you should be able to play around with it and see what it has to offer. I would love to get your feedback on it -- how can we make Japanator better for you? Let us know in the comments below!
