Greetings Researchers & Readers:
_About These Questions_
It has been far too long since we've posted on this wonderful service!
We've got a new series of questions related to the newest version
(4.0) of our web site, and really hope you guys can help us out.
Hopefully these questions/tasks will be fun! Oh, and no fair
answering identical questions ? feel free to answer different, but not
_About The MyAdventureGame.com Project _
MyAdventureGame.com is a website dedicated to playing, creating, and
sharing Choose-Your-Own-Adventure style games. The people behind
MyAdventureGame.com (us) created the site as a hobby and to have a fun
learning experience. Because of this, we have no real budget or
anything like that, which is directly reflected in the questions'
$-to-time ratios. But, we hope to make up it for fun. The current
live website has some more information if you're interested.
_About The New Version _
Being never satisfied, we've decided to complete redo the entire
website - from giving it a slightly cleaner interface to using an
industrial strength 3-tier ASP.NET web application (in our humble
opinion). Currently, we're in the Alpha stages, which we define as
having enough functionality to determine if the design/interface will
work. Expect broken links and errors, but don't worry about reporting
them unless we specifically request in the Question.
_And Finally, The Questions_
What do you think of the home page (same on Current & Alpha) design?
What mood/feelings does it invoke? What message does it convey? How is
Secondary Pages - Appearance
What do you think of the new secondary pages compared to the current?
Do the new colors and tab styles make a big difference?
Secondary Pages - Navigation
Do you find the names on the tab easy to understand? Do the tabs
contain the content you would expect? Is the Sub-Navigation bar (with
the overline and underline) useful and clear? Any suggestions?
We absolutely love this feature -- what do you think of it? How does
it make you feel?
? so we just asked a whole bunch of questions, but we're just trying
to explain what we're thinking. You don't have to explicitly answer
each question, but try to have your response answer the four main
areas (Home Page, Appearance, Navigation, Random Game).
Current Site: http://www.MyAdventureGame.com
Alpha Site: http://Mag.Papadimoulis.com
Please accept our apologies for the novella of a question. But,
understand that we want to be as concise as possible, and explain
exactly what we're looking for, and try to make sense of why we're
asking such atypical questions. Also, we really appreciate your help.
Everyone on this site has been very helpful in the past, so thanks in
The MyAdventureGame.com Team
