Please go back to the original. Why condense the main headings at all? Typical arrogant developer rolling out nonsensical changes, seek opinions, then ignore them all.

Why would anyone think two clicks to navigate would be better than one?

Just gone on the mobile site and wow just wow. Did management not actually get presented with these changes, how would anyone new to the site know to click on the top left hand corner to see all of the usual
tabs or click on hot to see new and discussed items.

If you did this in my work place you would be sacked :(

I like the new placement of the submit button, I don't feel like I am missing anything :)

It looks pretty crisp on the desktop. Not tried it on mobile though. I like it.

Has the text size slightly changed too? either way I really like it. A lot sharper.

All thats changed is you now have to click twice rather than once to move from deals to misc, hot to discussed etc. It looks crisper as they have removed the text links / functionality oO

I actually can't even remember what the old layout looked like X)

Was there a misc tab before? I'm sure I had to click menu to get to misc?

Any good reasons for removing the link to custom view?

it's an improvement, there is less rubbish before you get to the deals, it's easier to navigate to the filters and categories.

I am not a fan of the new tabs (hot, new, discussed) but that's purely asthetic.

Thanks for the feedback. Reviewing it for passing over.

I don't use it on my Ipad but on my phone it's 1 long menu, and on the iPad it's only click to open on landscape view.

Testing the old version on my iPad, the functionality is still the same from what I can see, 1 click to open the menu and then click misc.... so they haven't changed anything that wasn't there before?

There were more sub menu items available without having to click on the dropdown

Hot, discussed, new were one click away; now two

Thanks for that. I use my tablet in portrait, but as you said, in landscape the tabs are there. Still don't like it though! :)

I realise this new implementation is going to stay regardless of what people think, but can I suggest a new approach for the future updates.
1. Put up a test page to see what members think. That way any bugs and issues can be dealt with before the update goes live.
2. Add HOT and COLD buttons to get instant insight into the feelings of members ;)

It's work in progress, they will make adjustments based on user feedback, not the way I would do it (beta version then launch changes) but there is nothing fundamentally wrong on this one, just user preference!

So you now you have to click your user icon to see if you have a pm or response to a post wheras before you knew instantly. Some 'improvement'

Am I missing something?

I'm old, I don't like to fix things that aren't broken

But there's not much changed on the site (using pc version/web access) except fonts/colours here and there

Or am I the only one not looking hard enough? The only gripe I had today was when the site went apesh** for about 4mins but it gave me enough time to put the kettle on a mash a cuppa

Looks sharper and cleaner to me but I can't see a big difference. Then again I'm not the most observant of people!

Either way it's certainly nothing to complain about ...

Here we go again, year after year asking for feedback and I have never seen it auctioned once when the users don't like it. Please please please stop asking for feedback if you don't actually care about it :(

Now trying the mobile page. The logo now no longer takes us "home" we get a menu. This effects my usage. The extra step to change type is also not great.
I guess having everything in drop-down menus makes room for feature expansion, like new sections, but this is a deals site foremost, please try keep that in mind.
I admit it looks tidyer on desktop but not enjoying it here on mobile.

Suggestion: Have the far left of the header image act as before. I know there is a "Home" link when in a deal but it's tiny. Not great with fat fingers.
