TOPIC: New Design

New Design 1 year 8 months ago #18

Hi Trevor!

I found a few drawbacks in the most used menu, the ladder menu:

First: The pictures are incredible small!
Second: One of the best GTN features, the calculated level is somewhat lost in this new layout
Third: The “Last 5 Matches” only shows the first letter of the player's last name. This a little bit confusing because we have a couple of Joao Gs, Ricardo Ms, Joao Ms, etc

The old layout is not just different but more organized!
I post two images to exemplify:

Which one of the two designs the users prefer?

Thanks

Paulo Luz

Thank you Paulo for your constructive feedback. I couldn't agree more.

I can fix the “Last 5 Matches” names easily.

Don't worry, the ladder layout is going to change. I am not a fan. I just need to come up with something that works on desktop and mobile.

It will get much better soon I assure you.

Thanks for the feedback! Keep it coming.

Thanks Carlos. I agree. The ladder page is also my lest favorite aspect of the new design. You can expect a better version soon.

Hi Trevor,

Congrats on the new design.

I really like the built-in message editor, it allows publishing of rich and formatted content. All except for the message box when sending messages to members. Is it possible to enable the same editor for email messages to members? Messages are pretty plain right now.

Thanks

Agree with Paulo.
I´m also missing the space for the sponsor on the ladder page.

Best
Marcos

Trevor, I know how hard you work, and I appreciate it, but I am very nervous about the new design. I find a lot of things unintuitive now and I dread the amount of time I'm going to spend fielding questions from my members. One member told me she got a message that she had a pending notification and then got an error message when she tried to retrieve it. Don't know how many other members never got the notification about our end-of-season party.

It also took me a while to find that tiny little mail icon. I bet my members are going to have the same problem.

I really love the work you've done so far, and found that the site did not need an overhaul. My members, many of whom are not too tech savvy, were just starting to get the hang of the site and now they are going to have to relearn everything. I really wish there were a way we could revert back to the classic site, as you can with yahoo mail.

Thanks for the feedback Nancy. The bug mentioned has now been fixed.

Anyway, the new design does very little to improve the interface on computers, but on mobile devices, it is a huge improvement.

Mobile devices now account for over 40% of our traffic, and we were getting a lot of requests to make it mobile friendly. Google also makes it very clear that if your site isn't mobile friendly, it will be penalized in its search algorithm. We were seeing that first hand.

We will continue to improve the design, and make it even better with everyone's constructive feedback. Keep in mind, we also had a ton of complaints about the last design when it was first introduced.
