CBC Makes Use of Its Readership, Adds “Report Typo” Link

A quick, interesting update in the layout of a popular webpage noted by Portigal Consulting: CBC News has added a “report typo” link inside their main header on the top of each page. It’s a simple move, but it says a lot for the organization. How many of us who have blogs or deal with websites in one capacity or another, haven’t run into your accidentally formatting issues, like lines that run across the page because some tag wasn’t closed, or one of those stupid curly symbols because you didn’t reformat some block of text (we know these things probably have a name, but we refuse to look it up and call them by it because it would only give them more power). No matter the strength of an editor, the CBC gets that it takes a village to run a website. And for that, we applaud this decision.
