Things are all working for me, so I don't back the call for a revamp. If it 'aint broke...!

When a site undergoes a revamp, inevitably, new bugs appear and need to be worked out. A whole lot of effort just for a facelift. If you don't like the banner I'm sure there's a way you could change it using Greasemonkey (add-on for Firefox).

does anyone think with the growth and power of this site now it could be used like watchdog in helping its members who get shafted by companies

This site had a revamp in July/August last year, and the site is only just getting back to normal. If you think this looks old then you should've seen it a couple of years ago, one front page and the best was forum based.

An upgrade is all well and good, providing you have the resources available to do it properly. Problem is, every time this site is "upgraded" it is complete and utter chaos.

I wouldn't say no to an overhaul of the search feature.. very difficult to find things so I usually resort to using Google.

or am i missing something?

Trying to search for stuff on this site is a joke, that needs addressing first me thinks

A couple of years ago this was a great site and some brilliant deals were to be had, eg high-season transatlantic flights for under £300. Unfortunately due to the number of users we now have, it has become a victim of its own success as the increased traffic that a deal generates alerts companies to mistakes and misprices and loopholes are quickly closed. Most of the deals posted nowadays are only of interest to gamers and people looking to save a couple of pence off a grocery item. As for the site itself, the improvements implemented in the last revamp have done nothing but harm and I'm sure the same would happen if the designers were let loose again.
