Okay, I know the last thing anyone wants is another blog on the "new look" FanNation, but here it is anyway.
I count myself in the masses that immediately hated it. I was having trouble navigating, but that's another story. I also signed the petition to go back to the old site. By the way folks, that's not going to happen.
After a few days on the site it does start to grow on you. Then I realized it wasn't so much the format that I hated, rather the things that were gone. I still see people who are doing TDs and those posting blogs and comments, so what's changed...only the way things are done.
Don't get me wrong, I think that the new site still has its flaws, so instead of everyone demanding the "old site" back, maybe a different approach is needed. Maybe we should just let the "powers-that-be" know what we want back and what doesn't really work for us. I came up with a few things I'd like to see fixed, changed, or brought back.
1- Change the white background - its blinding
2 - Make blogs private in those groups that don't want it public.
3 - A button to find users/groups
4 - Some polls in the groups overlap (Real Ladies, Real Sports)
5 - Let people know if they have fanmail without going into it.
6 - Put message boards back into the groups
7 - Bring back the community page
That's about it, in no particular order, except to mention that the format isn't the real problem....SI took away things that members used the most.
Please add your thoughts and hopefully we can get something done!!!!!!!!!
