What kept us busy!!

Past couple of weeks we were busy with many new small small changes to the UX (User eXperience). Finally we have the launched the new changes.

Home page have been changed and things are more visible. Like all the channels ( wine & dine, lifestyle, local services, shopping) are more visible with tabbed structure.

New thing which we added was events. It involved a great lot of things, other then the UI. Events are collected from different sources and then changed to the datatype we wanted. We have categorized them into the following –

  • Conferences, Conventions
  • Learning, Education
  • Art, Antiques, Crafts
  • Sales, Retail, Open Houses
  • Performing Arts, Theater, Dance, Drama
  • Music, Concerts
  • Religion, Spirituality
  • Family Fun, Kids
  • Animals, Pets
  • Books, Poetry, Literature
  • Business, Finance, Investing
  • Charities, Fund Raisers
  • Clubs, Associations
  • Community, Neighborhood
  • Festivals, Fairs, Parades
  • Food, Cuisine, Wine
  • Movies, Film

  • Nightlife, Parties
  • Other
  • Outdoors, Recreation
  • Property, Furnishing, Furniture
  • Schools, Colleges and Alumni
  • Science

  1. But there is no way one can list an event on your site . Even members cannot do. If this site has to thrive on UGC then please allow that. BTW great UI.

    ANd please keep the file size to atleast 1MB so that it can accomodate a graphics heavy file. Unlike Sulekha which only allows 5KB(puny ).
