Latest comments?

What is latest?

Didn't find your answer?

Search AccountingWEB

In the old site there was a list of questions that had the most recent comments but I can't see this in the new site. Is this one of the "improvements" or have I just not been able to find it?

There's an opportunity to receive updates when new replies are added but when I have selected that option I get a lot more notifications than just new replies. Have I misunderstood?

It's a lot harder to ask a question now. A lot of things are a lot harder. Is that a good idea? I would have thought AccountingWeb would want to make things easier. But maybe AccountingWeb live in an upside down world?

It's all about the (advertising) space, 'bout the (advertising) space. (Don't want) no trouble!

So that's alright then. The advertisers will be happy with having big graphics even though accountants will be leaving in droves.

No point in advertising if nobody there to read them is there? So this could really backfire on Aweb.
I hate all this ad garbage - the same reason I stopped reading local paper when they updated their online version.

Agreed. I used to read an online newspaper until they forced their adverts on me. I just stopped reading it.

I don't think 'latest answers' is currently visible - which is a shame as it is how I also used the site - mainly.

I have been reading the sift updates, and think they may well re-appear.

Fingers crossed.

What is the logic of that? Something that is useful and well used is hidden. It seems as if the people who designed the site live in an upside down world where they introduce things that make life difficult and take out things that make life better.

in short the whole 'update' is shocking disaster

Do you think AccountingWeb will admit it?
I think they will come up with some nonsense instead. If I was the owner and saw the mess they had created I would sack the lot of them.

Peter even for me that is a bit much ! however i would like to know more about who redesigned it , I am not sure that is down to JS and his team. i suspect the work of some sort of designer who doesnt quite get what we are about ;-) . i cant follow any answers at all now , its sad and so am I .JS and his team will surely recognise this in time . My challenge to them is to publish daily a list of hits , questions and answers

Obviously it's not the editorial staff who have come up with this design. They are the people who will suffer though. I've chased up some regulars and the constant answer is that they are on the site a lot less because it is a pain to use. If that doesn't lead to a slow demise I don't know what will.

It's a bit much? Are you telling me that if you owned a batch of web sites and you got some people in to change one and it resulted in many users leaving the site or cutting down their interaction to a large extent you would be eager to let them loose on another of your web sites?

Imagine you had a shop and it had plenty of parking and access to buses and trains. If somebody came along and suggested that you dug up the parking and lobbied for the bus stops and train stations to be taken away away and justified it by saying that eight year olds love that kind of thing as they walk past on their way to school would you embrace the idea with open arms or would you say "Don't be stupid". It seems that AccountingWeb have made the wrong decision.

To answer the OP. Yes.

According to Ben Smith (presumably one of the website designer teams) a "most recent replies" sub menu will be introduced by the end of the coming week (the 13th)

See:
https://www.accountingweb.co.uk/community/blogs/bensmithsift/accountingw...

for updates and an idea of what they are planning to change...

It's hard to believe that there appear to be so many "revisions" required, following the launch of the refreshed website.
From what I can see, this really wasn't thought through, was it?

I think this is why people are wanting to know who, if anybody, did the thinking about the changes.
