BBC News website redesign (1)08:07am on 11 Jul 2010@James Saunders Updating all the old pages would surely take up a lot of time (especially as there is more than 1 old template) but really isn't needed for the thousands of old articles? They're hardly looked at now compared to the recent news, and personally I like the way you can look at the old news in the format it was originally posted online as.
Also agree with countless others then localisation should be changeable - North American/International/UK loaded by default depending on location, but then cookie stores which site you actually want for future. Only complication is that all three sites will need to have both advert and non-advert modes for people viewing from outside Britain?
Over all great site at the moment and redesign also looks exciting!
