New Site Design

Thanks for checking out our beta preview. We’re using this forum to get your feedback to improve our design. Tell us what you think.

How can we improve our new look and site design?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. Just Stop

    It's unfortunate that once a thing is acquired, that thing must be monetized to within an inch of its life under the guise of "improvement".

    You all miss the point. The original wundermap was a beloved shortcut that when clicked gave us an simple and immediate representation of our local weather. It was simple and elegantly executed.

    Your current design team for this project has an extremely heavy hand, doesn't understand a workable and engaging user experience. And clearly doesn't understand performance and asynchronous processing in today's web browsers.

    My suggestion to improve the new design is to throw it…

        • Very sluggish compared to the classic site which works fine.

          Your website redesign runs very sluggishly compared to the classic site. With Javascript enabled, it is as slow as molasses. With Javascript disabled, half or more of the data disappears. The classic site runs fine with or without Javascript enabled. You need to tweak your new site quite a bit before I will ever use it at all. Why keep reinventing the wheel?

            • I believe you have a very good website and I can see that a lot of effort and imagination went into building and maintaining it, but I think

              I believe you have a very good website and I can see that a lot of effort and imagination went into building and maintaining it, but I think always there is always room for improvement.
              I have 2 suggestions for even more improvement.
              First I think it would be nice if you could add a horizontal "normal" (or "ideal temperature")reference bar to your charts on the main webpage.
              Second I was thinking about a possibility of comparison between different cities on your website. I don't know how hard is technically to implement something like this but I have seen "check…

              • Remove the Ad on Full Screen Weather

                The ad that now shows on Full Screen Weather is ridiculously large. It takes up 1/5th of my screen.

                • This would be really nice? To have an AVERAGE line below all of the local weather stations for Temperature, Humidity and Dew Point

                  Make all local weather station data a table with an AVERAGE line at the bottom of the table. The average would be of all the current readings from all weather stations in the zip codes for the city of interest. For example, for Lake Havasu City AZ it would be the zip code 86403 which would include the zip codes of 86403, 4, 5 and 86406. For someplace like Chicago or Boston maybe just the primary zip code would be fine.

                  If you really wanted to get technical and have some fun you could throw out any readings over or…

                      As a scientist I'll truly like the graphical forecast layout but, I suppose, I can see how non-scientists might like a more "verbal" forecast. Please go back to it.

                      • Get rid of the 43+ things that Ghostery blocks when opening your site.

                        Ghostery (Google Chrome plugin) says that it's blocking 43 separate things from your website. That's A LOT of stuff to block. When I open your website in Dolphin Zero on my tablet, it takes FOREVER. How about optimizing pages to load fast, instead of with more and more crap?

                        • Why is the travel planner so hard to find now?

                          I have always found the travel planner to be one of the most useful features of your website (after the wundermap), but you have made it very difficult to find now. Why? Can't you feature it under the 'More' heading on the new site?

                          At any rate, I advertised the site and, more specifically, the travel planner recently on travel.stackexchange.com. Link here: http://travel.stackexchange.com/q/36405/9872

                            I think it would be terrific if a weather website showed weather on their homepage.

                            • List the Towns and Cities

                              It would be nice and EASIER to read. If you were to list the towns and cities instead of running them all in never ending sentence form. An example would be todays public information statement with all the coldest temps here in Northern MN. Everything is just rammed together,,,finding a location near where you live is tough and time consuming.

                              • Please adjust the control bar on the Wunder Map

                                On the new Wunder Map design the model control bar is right over the top of the wind legend, thus making it very hard to read any of the wind ranges between 6kts and 74kts. Presentation mode seems to shrink the control bar a little but it still covers most of the center ranges. Could you please make it so we could turn off the control bar or place it just below the legend?

                                • Rocker animation, loop animation without delay

                                  I would like it if the Nexrad radar animation had the options to remove the delay at the end of the loop. It would also be amazing if you implemented rocker animation that is frequently used in weather centers where it plays backward and then forward and pauses shortly with the current latest frame.

                                    For the life of me, I can not figure out the hand grabber on my Mac with your WunderMap. It is the only instance of my inability to navigate a site while using a hand-grab control of all the applications at my disposal. Please change, as your WM is my favorite daily site to visit. Also, when I save my preferences for WM I don't need to see the preferences bar every time I open WM. That is the point of saving preferences; to not have to set preferences every time WM is opened. Iove to WU!

                                      Your new site takes way too long to load and it fills up with superfluous stuff while we wait for all the fluff to appear. If you want to keep the fluff then please allow people to navagate while it is loading. Very annoying as it now exists.
