August’s homepage reviewed

Posted by Dom

Here’s a quick look at what you thought of the site in August.

The tragic plane crash in Madrid and Kerry Katona’s bankruptcy were two of the biggest news stories in our slides during August.

On a lifestyle front, a piece from Encarta on useless body parts really got you clicking (why do men have nipples?!), as did an interesting piece on what your sleeping position says about the state of your relationship.

And, of course, we can’t forget the Olympics, where Britain’s staggering gold medal success kept us busy putting up some memorable images in the slideshow.

Issues which got you irked this month included: an out-of-date photo of Kilimanjaro, some misleading or overly sensationalist headlines in our News module, inaccurate weather forecasts (‘Your weather forecasting is the worst I have ever seen, its so far out its embarrassing, do you use a pine cone and a piece of seaweed ?’) and an unfortunately wrongly programmed news link (‘Why is Barry George considered to be a speed camera cash cow on your news link. I’m sorry but I don’t understand that’).

Bad spelling and grammar also upset you:

‘When you write ‘the position in which we lay down …’ do you mean the position we use to lie down in, or are you confusing the transitive and intransitive forms of the verb, ‘to lie’?’

‘WHAT is an Olympic ‘gold MEAL’???? If cannot spell, RESIGN!!’

‘Can you not spell? IT’S ISAAC HAYES NOT ISSAC’

‘I have to write on behalf of all of us who are actually literate. Please employ some proof readers! In the decline of the honeybee article Varroa is named as both the mite AND the virus it carries. Also, this is the wrong ‘prey/pray’ – unless bee mites do have an organised religion :)’

The old issue of linking to stories about Madeleine McCann also prompted one user to write: ‘A war has broken out between Russia and Georgia, the Olympics have just started….but MSN will lead with the story that Maddie – an MSN headline fave – MIGHT have been seen in a bank in Belgium’.

Thanks for all your comments and opinions, and rest assured they were all taken note of and passed to the relevant editors.

On the bright side, we did get some positive feedback from one user: ‘The world’s weirdest animals and sea beasts article was brilliant. My sister and me loved it. They certainly are horrible, especially the one that eats its victims from the inside out. Educational, fun, very funny and insightful indeed.’

We’ll be back in a month to review September’s goings-on.
