Subdomains vs Subdirectories: The team discussed the complexity related to managing cookies across different subdomains and whether shifting to subdirectories would simplify matters. The change could also potentially reduce cost and facilitate easier maintenance. However, subdomains were initially considered to separate user experiences, as the application varied significantly for consumers, non-profits, and artists. The group decided that experimenting with subdirectories to assess simplicity, effectiveness, and maintenance should dictate the ideal approach.
Application Design: The State Changers also examined creating differing navigation and user experiences on separate subdomains. They reviewed a concept gallery for mobile and desktop versions of the application, with the desktop version opting for a more minimalist user experience. Legal and policy content would be available, recognizing this content as necessary but not frequently interacted with by users.
