Oh man, it feels good to say that. At long last, I am proud to announce that the beta of our new Mister Poll web site is now online! It’s taken so much longer than I had initially hoped, but I’m quite happy with the end result. The real question is, will you be?
Before I send you over there, let me say a few quick words about this beta. First, it’s a beta, so there will likely be a few imperfections. Hopefully nothing major is still lurking out there, but if you do find something, please let us know. Also, don’t limit your comments to things that break. If something feels awkward, doesn’t make sense, or you simply have a suggestion on how to improve it, speak up. We want to hear about that too.
Also, this beta site is running completely separate from the live Mister Poll site. Nothing you do on the beta will effect the live site in any way, and vice versa. This includes making new polls, changing existing polls, voting, posting messages, changing your password, etc. The two sites are completely separate. The beta site was seeded with a copy of the data from the live site as of early morning October 1st, 2007. When beta ends and we launch for real, we’ll start over and the latest live data will be re-converted one final time.
As far as what’s new, in a nutshell: a lot! In addition to the snazzy new look, almost every feature is improved in some way. I will post additional articles talking about the new features in more detail, but for now, go explore!
I’d really appreciate any feedback.
Thanks! I hope you like it!
