Poor Site - Vote to bring back the old site

I'm very disappointed with the new site design, why did they change it!!

Very Very Poor !

Poor design, poor graphics, poor text sizes and fonts and difficult to navigate.

If we all add a comment about it maybe we can get our old site back!!

eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
what on earth are they thinking with this new site!Rubbish!.
#2
Seems very confused and slow to me, not a good first impression at all. There's text on top of other text, the old site was much easier to navigate round right from the off. This reminds me of that other dogs dinner MSE now. Hope it gets better......soon!!
#3
Have to agree the new site is terrible!! why change what was perfect b4! arrrghh!!!!!

[SIZE="5"]This is a load of rubbish,

No borders between deals on the home page

WHERE IS THE FORUM??

IF IT AINT BROKE THEN DON'T FIX IT - HDUK MANAGEMENT ARE A BUNCH OF MUPPETS[/SIZE]

I'm not going to concur with "site management muppetry" sentiments because there are obviously reasons for the layout change (bandwidth reduction ?). I've got to agree though that I vastly prefer the former skin/layout. This is horrid.
#6
Firstly, can't get the page to fit on my screen, can only find 'hot' deals not those warm or cold - anyone know where to find 'all deals', layout terrible, etc, etc, etc will probably stop using and go back to moneysavinguk site!
#7
Been using the site for a few hours now and have worked some of the problems out. Am pleased to see the Amazon Deals now seems to work properly.
But I still can't post any new deals or start a thread having tried everything including adjusting my security and cookies settings.
I think it's time one of the mods or Admin put out a statement of intention. If they will not go back to the old website format and try to press on with this can of worms they should at least explain why or even offer an apology.

apologies to the person i just PMed to ask how on earth i navigate this new site. after a long search i have found it.

i must say, this new website has taken all the character that the site had previously. I thought the only thing that needed changing was the server the site was hosted on...

Agreed - it's awful. completely ruined what was once a nice tidy forum.
#10

#11

#12

#13
OLD Site = Fantastic

New Site = ****

Bloody hell how small is this text in the editor!!!???
#14
bring back the old site NOW
#15
God some of you people are rude.

This is a FREE site, that helps YOU save money. What right have you to demand anything?

If you don't like the site, you can either a) not use it or b) make a polite, constructive request for what you would like to see changed. I'm sure the owners will listen to feedback.
#16
Im very shocked at this, lol the website looks very nice indeed. But its not user friendly at all.

But then again im not paying for the service not complaining, but would be nice if they had the old site :)
#17
meh its ok with text view

its more bandwidth heavy making it even more slow!!!
#18
The new site is almost worse than braving the crowds on the high street!
#19
I just posted somewhere how I hated this new look, now i can`t even find my way back to my post. It`s just to complicated.
Non of the threads seem to indicate that you have a post in that thread, i.e. I have just found ( by accident) the competitions forum but now don`t know which ones I have entered, where as before it was easy.

Help!

do we need another thread compaining?
#22
new site=poo site
a forum i'm a long-standing member of did a similar disastrous reformat, and now has about a tenth of the previous users- I can't get to grips with it so rarely log in. Their problem was not listening to the members asking for the original format to be put back into use....

ps you'd do wise to listen to the_andy, he knows his stuff...
#23
Please bring back the old site, this is truly awful!
#24
Well i've just changed my homepage from hotukdeals to MSE, the new look is pants !!
#25

#26

#27

Please can i have the old site back, i think its great that they are trying something new but im afraid the old site was a lot better.
#30
I personally don't think it looks that bad, looks quite like a smart version of the old site; providing you change your settings to text only. But it does seem to take longer to load up, and I'm still getting used to the new navigation system at the top. Someone commented somewhere else on the forum that it was a mistake to change the site this close to Christmas, and I'd agree with that.
#31
this is awful, i dont get why sites do rubbish like this, it looks 100 times worse than before. the site was awesome before so easy and comprehensive but now i just cant look at it very long. not very easy on the eyes at all!
#32
[SIZE="14"] I agree that we should be allowed to vote on the site one vote per member a straight YES or NO by pressing buttons on the site if anyone can manage to stay logged on long enough[/SIZE]

I must admit the old site was better! they should just improve on the design not remake the entire website!!!!



same here !! this web site lay out is nasty !!..... sorry but it is ****.:whistling:

oh by the way happy x-mas too :santa:
#36
Yeah, have to say, not liking this new layout, there must be a reason for it. Admin?
#37
Seriously... they have ruined the website... if its not broken why fix it? the navigation is an absolute joke.
#38
[FONT="Arial Black"][SIZE="7"]As many have said , if it ain't broke dont mend it, and can I have a magnifying glass to read what I have just typed.[/SIZE][/FONT]
#39
I have not been on here since yesterday, but in my 1 minutes so far of being on here, i am a bit shocked and disappointed. Hot Deals are hot and fiery and should be orange and red not bogie green bit of a disappointment, but I will reserve my whole judgement until I have used the site for a little longer.
