Last week I implemented further changes to this blog as part of my ongoing attempts to improve readability and finding information. At the time, I included a little poll to help gauge feedback, which I set to run for a week.
As the week is now up, here are the results. A total of 40 people took the time to vote. Of these:
- 33 people (82.5%) liked the new look overall, with 27 indicating they found the layout easier to navigate, and six stating they like it
- 3 people (7.5%) felt the layout is an improvement, but were not fond of the sidebar appearing on every page
- 3 people (7.5%) preferred the older layout
- 1 person had no opinion on the new layout either way.
One person remarked that they were having issues with the layout at a resolution of 1920×1080, with white space and problems with random characters appearing in bold. Feedback was requested from several people using the same resolution, and resolutions similar to it (all of which were beyond the range of my own screen output), and while some did remark on the borders around pages, they didn’t feel it was a problem to them, and none reported any issues with random character emboldening.
I don’t intend to make any more substantial changes to the blog for the time being, although I’ll be continuing to tweak things in small ways. However, I would like extend my thanks to everyone who took the time to provide feedback.
