A poll is nice, oh yes, but about what?
A poll, in this case “And … do you like X-Plained?” could be helpful for everybody. Not only for us, but also for you. We all want that everything we’re looking for is available at X-Plained. Ok, perhaps “that” special review, impression or tutorial will take a week or month to get it ready for you, but that’s not how it works. The “thought” of having everything done within a split second would be great, but far from realistic. Writing about products takes time and with the help of “you”, we can try to make X-Plained better by listening to “your ideas and/or suggestions”. And then still, after a poll is closed, it will still cost some time to implement the ideas and/or suggestions.
Let’s start with this poll and see what the outcome brings. When you have ideas and/or suggestions, then please leave a comment. Please take the time to help us improving – in case you’ve selected “can be improved” – with your comments. But of course, other comments related to X-Plaiend are also welcome.
The general contents are great.
What I certainly do not like is this popup reminder for registering that blocks the sight every few seconds once someone is not logged in. I thought logging in would only be required for downloads but not for viewing reviews.
You’re right that logging-in offers you downloads and tutorials, but you can also see it from this way … just log in, assuming you’ve cookies enables and the next time you use your browser, you’re automatically logged in and you’ll never see the register popup. By the way Guido ….. it’s already mentioned in the popup …. see ….. “Registering gives you access to our downloads as well as tutorials. No worries, once registered and logged in, you won’t see this popup anymore! So … go for it!.”
“It’s OK” is a bit harsh, but I KNOW that X-Plained will evolve even to be better – because there is such a huge reservoir of experience being tapped. Please be encouraged by your success. Kind Regards P G
