Improving user interactions with top news displayer
On the front page, there is a top news/story displayer that constantly switches between the various stories.
Currently, there are two problems with this:
First, the title of the story is not link when it should be. I think you will find that most users will think that the title is a link, as is often the case, when it is not.
Second, the clickable space for switching between the different stories is too small. I can't find the research paper on this right now, but increasing the interaction space is nearly almost always helpful. It may also be useful to have small vertical space on both sides of the currently displaying story to switch to the last one.
Thanks for the suggestions. We are working on adding ability to filter through newsroom entries directly on the home page as a solution to this problem.
