You may have noticed a couple of small but significant changes to this site. Most importantly, Pinned Posts are much easier to find at long last. Pinned Posts cover the most commonly asked questions by those newly diagnosed with CLL (as well as topics that can become important later in our journey with CLL) and they became very hard to find when the site went through a big revamp a year ago. You'll now find them on the right of the Posts page, accompanied by the avatar of the author.

Secondly, you may have noticed that the 'Recommend' button has been changed to a 'Like' button. Joel from HU has stated that "Users have repeatedly asked for it (Like) and the support team continue to feed back that the users use the 'recommend' button like a 'Like' button. So, we figured, why fight it? They use it that way and they ask for it...
We originally used 'recommend' thinking that it would aid in finding quality content over and above a 'like' button. However, as we looked into it we saw that it wasn't being used in that way and, thus, was never implemented as a measure of quality.
There's also a psychological difference between the two. When I recommend your post / comment I'm telling others (not you), as it were, that they should read it. When I like your comment, I'm telling you that I appreciate it / you.
The more we looked at it the more it became clear that users weren't, for the most part, 'recommending' content, but trying to offer support. This seems to help with that."
What do you think of the changes?
