    I love the pictures, but it would be so much better if they were in order by date. One picture is the completed project the next is the construction. Only the demolition is in order. Everything else is just random. Question. Don't you have a video of the demolition?
    Also, I have to agree that this picture viewer is slow. I think the Deseret News is doing a great job in the internet market, but it could be a lot better.

    Way to find the dark lining in every silver cloud. Just enjoy the new downtown! It's a HUGE improvment over the gray monstrosity that was there before, right?

    It must be nice to get this much free advertising from your own newspaper and your own tv station.

    Okay, the last time I said this people complained at me for being 'impatient'.

    However, I being a full-on supporter of the D.N., a pretty big nerd, and a person who isn't complaining in a negative way but simply wanting to see this 'paper' have success- I hope that people will understand my complaint in the positive attitude I am sharing it in.


    Deseret News Staff:

    153 pictures? No problem. Showing a 'film-reel' style progression? No problem. Showing it click by click by click by click by click by click... problem.

    The method the D.N. is presenting content is years behind as far as online standards go. 'Top ten' articles shouldn't require loading new pages to navigate. No one likes it and it has other potential problems for user experience. Showing 150 pictures via a slow picture navigator is also a problem- an easily avoidable one.

    Some websites display content very effectively. I don't expect amazing- but at least not being far behind everyone else. Anyone understanding the backend of websites today, CMS's, templates, and how extensions work knows that I'm hardly asking for much effort to improve user experience.
