'You' have a "Tell us what you think!" button, but hopefully you also read the forum...

FWIW
This new dark forum theme would have perhaps worked when you were a 'games' site, but now that's in the past it really doesn't work for me.

As a broadband, domain names, hosting company the previous look worked better for me.

You have lots of "calls to action" to provide feedback, so I know you're always happy to hear people's views :¬)

As a long term happy Freeola customer (I spent over £1500 last year with you, not including the people I refer) I'm confused with recent changes.

The forum reduced in size etc. with the only live section "The Freeola Customer Forum" - so in theory focusing on broadband, domains and hosting.

But then the theme was revamped with a gaming style which doesn't seem to make sense to me...

You are now asking for gaming visitors to sign-up to discuss their games - but you've just closed that section of the forum?!


As an aside where you've mentioned analytics/visitors.
It's interesting how this thread quickly racked up 1300+ visitors. I think a lot of those may be 'bots' that arrived after I linked to this thread via Twitter - could be wrong but the figures look a bit strange.

Perhaps if you are thinking about returning to gaming related things you should run a gaming forum separately to your customer forum to help people like me that are easily confused ;¬)

It's not real gold. It's mud with a tinge of yellow.

In the past month there were 11413 visitors to the parts of our site which are now black and gold retro.

HEY - VISITORS - please sign up and tell us what games you play.

With the gold and black it's less 1995 and more 1920s

Having read 'stuff' from Freeola, guess this is what the intention is ;¬)
