Coding4Fun blog only?

Dan Fernandez has asked the Coding4Fun authors for a little feedback regarding Coding4Fun and now Dan is asking for some reader feedback regarding making Coding4Fun a blog only site.  Coding4Fun has a hybrid blog system right now, however the move would make it full out blog such as Engadget or Make.

Advantages of moving to primarily a blog option

  • Built-in C4F only search so you can actually find articles
  • No formatting weirdness between sites where code looks good on the blog, but crappy on the MSDN site
  • No more disappearing articles where old articles can't be found because they are no longer visible through the RSS feed
  • Deeper categorization/tags - we can provide a much more thorough list of tags than we do today
  • Built-in comments so you can share your thoughts on articles
  • Easier to find in search engines
  • Less work for authors to publish
  • Version resilience - MSDN is moving to an new infrastructure that would tie up our dev resources
  • We would still have article redirection in place for previously published articles that would point to the blog
  • Printer-friendly articles, assuming we stick to some high-level authoring guidelines
