Wightbay Homepage Design

Hi All,

Ok, after what has been a VERY busy week working on teething issues, talking to users and establishing feedback for changes, I think we're getting there.

On Monday I expect the re-list / renewing old ads to be resolved and any expired ads you had on the old Wightbay will be available for you to rebook/re-use should you wish. Will keep you posted on this!

Within two weeks we should have the brand new Wightbay Messages service up and running - Put into immediate development after user requests told us you missed this A LOT! We are listening! :)

So this leave the homepage...

In our attempts to try and get people into content quickly and let them find what they want, we're getting feedback to say we have over-done it, that the homepage is now too cluttered and is somewhat scary to look at! So, again we've listened and today we've mocked up a few initial designs for improvements. And we want your opinion...

We've posted four mock-ups on our Facebook page for you to view. Please take a look and give us your thoughts. Any of them an improvement? What else would you do? Etc.

This is your chance to help us tweak the new Wightbay and deliver a site you are all proud of and love to use.

look forward to reading the comments :)

Rob

Oh I Wish! when will they be available and how do you relist current adds that might be due to end, if only you knew when that would help. Perhaps these teething problems should have been sorted before the new site was rolled out, as you have now broken something that worked. Why???? (must be trying to keep up with Ebay)

Sorry but I agree with the above comment. I have had a message from you to relist and have but noticed that it doesnt come up on latest ads anymore. So its down to the buyer to trawl through all the classified ads. There are a lot of impulse buyers like myself who used to love looking at the latest ads and actually have managed to buy a lot of items that I need or have been exactly what I was looking for for a present. Why break something that worked. All folk seemed to have grief with was the way the site was soooo slow.

Your main aim should be to make the viewing experience as comfortable as possible.
