Default New Website User Data

We've been tracking the % of users that are on the new website vs old style and as of yesterday 93.9% of all users were on the new format.

We appreciate your support and patience to adjust to something new and different.

If there are any ways we can improve please let us know.

Can we remain on the old format if we want to?? OR...will it be phased out? IF so, then just transfer all the accounts to the old one instead of jumping through signing up for it. I tried that and somehow it didn't work.

Also, are you tracking how long they are staying there? I tried it twice since it appeared without my having clicked on it. Both times I went back to the old version after a few minutes because it is too bright and has too much on it and seems disorganized. Maybe you thought I was using it, but I'm not.

Love new format, thank you did a wonderful job

We use Google Analytics which tells us precisely how many users are on the new format vs. the old format, how many pages are visited on average with each, the amount of time on average of each, and much much more detailed information.

If anyone has a suggestion on how to improve the new format feel free to PM us and we can look to make further improvements.

This is a great question. We will no longer support the old format. Google has requirements for mobile design and we will support the new format. That means if anything breaks on the old we will not fix it. It will be 'sunsetted'.

Tell us what we can do to improve the new one.
