PostSubject: Poll #9 - The Main Site   Thu Apr 01, 2010 8:19 am

Axel and I have been fiddling about with the main site a bit and we've both noticed that it's a tad cluttered. I don't know if that is how you guys see it, or not, but we would like your honest opinion about the main site.

How do you see it? Do you like it? Is it too cluttered? Is it lacking in professionalism?

Well, if you answered yes to the last two questions, we would like to share our new main site concept with you.

http://axelsworldofcrap.webs.com/

It's hosted differently and is more simplified.

So, what now?
What we want to know from you is which you prefer. The current main site, or our new site concept.

Here are our list of pros and cons for each:


Current Main Site (axelsworldorcrap.spruz.com)


PROS

  • Custom profiles - Each member can choose a background colour, or image to suit their profile and install widgets to make their profile 100% unique.

  • 'Popular' and 'Recent' image display on main page - Every time a member uses their 'personal' albums in their profile, it will be displayed as a new pic on the main site. Depending on pageviews, comments and ratings, images will be displayed as 'popular', also.

  • News and Reviews feed - News will always be displayed on the main page via our news widget, as will reviews.

  • Chat - AWOC chat is available to members on the navigation bar.

  • Groups - Members can join groups to chat with other members about their interests. (IE: AWOC Gamers, etc.)

  • Footer Bar - Our Skysa bar is at the foot of both our main page AND our forum. It features links to the main site, the forum and the store, holds announcements, polls and user comments, while also having an online list for any friends who are online on the main site so you can IM them. Also has regular AWOC chat AND our awesome video chat installed in it and has our affilliates listed as well as a sharing tool.




CONS

  • Too cluttered for some - While having lots of features, some find it too cluttered making it both hard on the eye and hard to navigate.

  • Browser Compatibilty - In certain browsers, some features do not load and the layout does not look smooth and is sometime broken up making it look unprofessional.

  • Loading Speed - While ok for most, some do have an issue with loading speed due to their connection and the main site's host of features.

  • Gallery cramped -The gallery looks very squished and uninviting to submit to.

  • The Writing Section is ugly - It looks very ugly, basic and uninviting.

  • Popularity - While AWOC has a lot of different features and services, the main site is often neglected by members.






New Site (axelsworldofcrap.webs.com)


PROS

  • Professional Look - With a smoother, more streamlined look, the new home page looks a whole lot more professional and inviting. The navigation bar is centered so that it will fit most browsers.

  • Better Gallery - The gallery fits onto the screen better and has a more 'fun' look to it.

  • The Library - The writing section has been renamed to 'The Library' and looks much more professional and it's also easier to manage.

  • Custom Order Form - We have now been able to integrate our custom order for right into our site. You will find the link in the navigation bar.

  • Creative Geniuses - We now are able to display our members, who we have lovingly named our 'creative geniuses'.

  • FAQ - We now have a more detailed FAQ section where you can also post your own questions at the foot of the page!

  • Video Chat - We have a link to video chat. (You may also join tinychat.net to always join as a member.)

  • Testimonials - Members can rate the site and leave feedback in our testimonials section.



CONS

  • News and Reviews not listed - The news and reviews are not listed on the main site and are accessable via the navigation bar only. They have to be manually typed in, should they be displayed on the main page.

  • No Custom Profiles - While you do have a lot of info to fill out, profiles cannot be customised like in the old site.

  • No Personal Galleries - There is no option for a personal gallery (Album) to display photos in your profile.

  • No Groups - There are no ember groups (IE: AWOC Artists, AWOC Cooks, AWOC Gamers, etc.)

  • Less Features - We have less widgets floating around. (For some that's good, but it means less content.)




We would like 100% HONEST comments that tell us what you think of BOTH sites, what could be done to improve whichever your favourite may be and which you'd spend more time on and why.


VOTES WITHOUT COMMENTS WILL NOT BE COUNTED!

I'm used to the way it used to be so i can't really say much, but i think we should be open for changes. Who knows might be good.

Webs.com one. It looks better and less messy and I love the designs. I'd say it has a chance at being 10x more popular.
