All of our months of hard work have paid off and we're finally happy with the look and feel of the Bilerico facelift. The site might be offline for a short time later this evening as we rebuild Bilerico with all the new bells and whistles.

We'll be turning off readers' ability to comment on posts tonight at 10pm Eastern. When the new design comes up, bilerico_sept.jpgwe'll turn comments back on. Projectors will then have the ability to sign in with their Facebook login or with a Bilerico account. This will save us the time of moderating comments before they publish; readers can flag offending comments to have an editorial team member check them out.

Plus, when we come back online we'll also have a contest to win a few "birthday" gifts from Lady Gaga.

I can't wait for y'all to see the new site. I know you'll love it as much as we do. We've got a history together tho, this site and I.
