It's "funny"; I'll give credit where "credit" is due...aside from maybe the odd peculiarity, things appear to be "working" now (I say "credit", because you really shouldn't be patted on the back, for taking weeks
...just to get back to being "functional"...lol).
Still...the changes go to serve what purposes? Yes, maybe they've added a few searches...that some members were like "it would be nice
if it could do this
", or "it would be nice if it could do that
". Small gains...when they even work...IMO, compared to the fact that the site just doesn't feel
the same anymore.
Countless members...including many here...have said it's just not as "enjoyable" to search anymore. And I'm talking guys...like myself...who would check deals, in certain categories...2, 3, 4 or more times a day (sad, but true...lol). There are things you just can't quite put your finger on, that people "like"...and "don't like"; there's a Trillion-dollar industry called Marketing based on it...lol.
People may not have been able to pick it more than 5 times out of 10...but they "didn't like" New
Coke (to site one of that industry's biggest missteps); and it doesn't appear they "like" New Audiogon
. Can't even say why; the font isn't inviting? The pics are too small? The color-scheme is cold? Who knows...I'm not in Graphic Design, nor Marketing Psychology.
I'd just love to shoot someone full of Sodium Pentothal, and ask them "why? What's the real
reason you felt you needed to change it?".
