Are you happy with the new interface of WSO marketplace ?

10 replies
WSO section looks quite unfamiliar to me now, I like the previous interface which was attractive, well looked and user friendly. What do you think, which one is better - the previous interface or the current one ?

      I prefer the old look.... If something works well... why change it?

    I don't like it.

    Here's why:

    1. They took off the top navigation that is on every other page of this site (except 404 and error pages) which includes "New Posts" which is how I surf the forum. So it takes a couple extra clicks (extra time) to leave the WSO forum now.

    2. They took off the preview of thread contents that you get in every other forum. I also use this extensively to determine if I want to open a thread. While a graphic sales letter wouldn't show in the preview, there are enough text sales letters to save a lot of time. But no more due to the redesign.

    3. They took away the navigation to go beyond the next page. Before I could go back 100 pages with a click or two to browse/compare/etc. Now, that is impossible. I would have to click next 100 times.

    4. They have thrown other paid ads, such as classified ads, under the bus by not having a link to those subforums from anywhere but one place - the main forum index. If you click on marketplace at the top that goes to the WSO section but not classifieds, warriors for hire, etc. Likewise with the bottom menu - you can go to the War Room or WSO forum but not classifieds. With their rules about what can't go in the WSO section, it seems mighty unfair to hide ads people paid good money for in a place that is hard to get to. It's also harder for potential customers to get to those sections. If customers can't find where to buy stuff they won't buy which eventually hurts the forum so I'm not sure the reasoning that went into this.

    5. The Replies and Views columns are not sortable like they are in other parts of the forum. People ask, all the time, about what are the best WSOs. Being able to sort by replies and views may help in this regard. An offer that has 399 replies is either a scam or a success but it's worth looking at either way. Now, you can't.

    FL seems to have the mistaken notion that prettier will bring back the traffic. Besides the fact that many don't find it prettier, that's not the problem that needs to be tackled. But it's their call. Making something "prettier" while butchering the previously available features, though, seems to be going the wrong direction. But that's just my opinion.

    Honestly - I loved the older version. I logged into WF after a long time and things seem to be a little too different. Just my 2 cents.

    It is now a headline that you click if you are interested. In the previous format there was a headline that you would click if you were interested. Why is this even a question. Is there something really confusing about freelancer using the feed to display the headline instead of the forum.

    Broken promises don't upset me. I just think, why did they believe me?
