Readers:

Since we rolled out our redesigned site this past weekend, many of you have noticed that our personalization and news menu navigation were disabled. These features are integral to MSNBC.com’s news experience. Personalization is already back, and news menu navigation will return to the site soon.

To ensure that we were able to deliver the story of the capture of Saddam Hussein to you, we removed those features as traffic to the site escalated in order to “lighten the load” on our new publishing system, which launched along with our new design, only hours before Saddam’s capture.

As we test and tweak our new service, know that we value those features and will re-introduce them both as soon as possible.

Here is an overview of the changes made to make MSNBC.com a better experience

We hope the changes we’ve made improve your experience with MSNBC.com.  We’re still working on other features we know our readers enjoy, such as:

Everyone involved in the redesign of MSNBC.com has worked many months on a design that highlights the strong journalism that MSNBC.com is known for.  We’re convinced the result is the most dynamic, interactive, clearest site on the Internet.

Let us know how we’re doing and the kinds of features you’d like to see us develop.  We welcome your comments at generalcomments@feedback.msnbc.com .
