Here is the second Lottery Post site poll.  The first one was regarding the Left Menu, and can be found here: http://www.lotterypost.com/thread/154139.

If you would kindly take a few moments to record your vote I would appreciate it; adding comments would be even better, especially if you feel strongly about the issue.

I am considering some changes, and your input will be valuable — thank you!


Question #2.

I'd like to find out your opinion about the Home page (located at http://www.lotterypost.com/).

Please select the poll option that best describes your feelings. If it's not a perfect match, that's OK. It's more valuable for me if you answer something "in the ballpark" rather than discarding your vote.

Feel free to leave comments to describe anything that would add to your answer. For example, if you choose one of the options that includes "Needs more information," maybe you can add a comment describing what information you would like to add.

Again, thank you for your participation!

      I wouldn't change a thing.

      You have the news in the middle, and just enough info on the right to give the viewer an outline of what to expect in the LP, without cluttering it up.

        This is a tough one but an important question since it is the first thing people see when coming onto the site and you want to make a good impression to get them to stay.

        I voted "a little too much information". Guess I find all those newstories a little distracting, it's sort of like the 2nd page of the newspaper instead of the first page where a nice big headline cover story gets my attention to keep reading and delve deeper. I'm a sucker for teasers,though,so don't mind me!!

                    I may be wrong, but i think he recently added the "Favorites" feature.

                      Hi i don't think i explained it,I was trying to tell Todd it would be a good idea to put what ever features you are viewing on that particular moment or day and juggle it back and forth or have the option to put it all back,Just like the YAHOO Homepage,Here is an example of what i am saying,IF i want to watch TV on a certain day i can just put TV at the Top,this is the Guide and if i want just some of the news i can choose whatever i want to read that interest me and have it on 1 page, or sometimes i will have an entirely different selections of my own interest on the same page,Sometimes i don't explain things where people can understand me i hope noone gets offended or misunderstand my reply or request,i'm not saying what Todd already have is bad,I just want everyone to know what my opinion is.I hope you can understand that.

                        Don't worry, I understood exactly what you meant, and your comparison to Yahoo is correct.  That's what I meant by "customized".  No need to justify your comments at all by saying that the other features are not bad!  I get a lot out of free-form comments -- just say what's on your mind.  Thanks for your input.

                            It looks just fine to me.

                            I do not visit the home page very often any how.

                            I have the forums url on my favorites so I go straight to the forums page and go from there.

                              i replied I'd like to be able to customize it myself.

                              While i like it as it is, and can navigate through every page, if customizing was an option in the future i would use it.
