The New DDMS!
« on: February 01, 2017, 07:17:07 PM »
All feedback is most welcome, especially any bugs, glitches, suggestions, and positive feedback is appreciated too.

Things to keep in mind due to it not being a live version.
1. The speed will be slow.  Improved (the serious speed improvement will only be noticeable several days after GoLive) [Suave 2/2/17 4:14am]
2. Some images may not fit properly. Fixed (some images inside of posts may have extra spacing below them, working on a solution now) [Suave 2/2/17 5:21am]
3. the gear icon to switch to the legacy mode isn't functioning yet. Fixed [Suave 2/2/17 6:56am]

New home site: http://beta.dansdeals.com/

New Legacy Mode site: http://beta.dansdeals.com/all

If you will be leaving feedback about something the best way to do that is to be as specific as possible, meaning what device/browser/screen size you are using and a screen shot is always helpful if it's something that needs to be fixed.

You can select Explore New Features to see some of what we have added.

I'd like to give a huge shout out and thank you to Dan for trusting me with this endeavor (None of this amazing community would even exist without him) and to Suave for helping &  creating this fantastic new site. I hope this helps lead DD/DDF to an even greater future.

I hope everyone enjoys.

Truly a beautiful new experience! Thanks everyone for their hard work! (I'm sad about the icon though 😭 I'll get over it guess)

The link in the top post (belkin power strip) is a non-dd-kosher link.  :P

Love it mostly. Is there any chance to come up with some background color other than white? It's really hard on my eyes... Otherwise it's done really well...

The title "Dan's Commentary" seems a bit awkward imho. Perhaps something like "Other Posts" or "General Posts".

Each category can be clicked on and you'll see the description of that category. It may explain them a bit more.

I think a lot of people.are coming to the site to see what Dan has to say.

That said some category names will be changed. I just can't do it until the site is live.

good. I'd tweak/work on the logo a little bit more.

The new design, is clean, sleek, and modern looking. I'll miss the long 15-line paragraphs on the home page, so instead of the 4-line Deal Description, can you increase it to 5-line description? This way we can get an accurate look at the deal and decide if we need to click on a new page or not.

The ads displayed every few posts or so are annoying, but I guess that's purely a business decision.

The tabs "Poll" and "Discussion Post" (under Dan's commentary section) should probably be plural as are all the rest of the tabs. (Or make the others singular.)

If you miss the 15 line posts use the legacy site. We even added a cool skip to next post feature.

On mobile I assume? Might have less, as I said the ads/banners aren't set yet.

Do you want us to comb through it to get to the nitty-gritty, or use it casually and see if we bump into anything that hurts?
