Like the new look to audiogon ?


Noticed this morning that a change happened on the site.   

If you go the category section and click on Amps / Solid State,  you then see all the thumbnails of the amps that are for sale.          Its a little confusing as first you see the BOOSTED LISTINGS, then after that is the FEATURED LISTINGS.....then you see ALL THE SOLID STATE LISTINGS. 

Gone is the category view of the listings......

@uberwaltz, if that is their reply, then all is lost. Dont expect any changes to this godawful format.

Once they see how much money and members they're losing, maybe they will address the problem. But by then it will be too late.

Where is the admin? She is usually very quick to post an update or info on the forum.
@rhassle
This is a text book case of failing to ask customers what is important to their daily browsing and buying practices and then develop their solution around that.
They were so busy figuring out how to raise revenue that they failed to take customer need into account. A classic blunder.
This is true. But can you explain to me how this new format will raise revenue? With this "Grid view" I can't tell the dealer ads from the private sellers. The Boosts have always been there, but now the entire page is a jumble of images.

The powers that be are very lucky to have rolled out this new format during a holiday week since there is very low traffic on the site. The forum has few new posts and consists mostly of talk about the unusable classifieds.
  But for the dedicated members, the damage has been done even after the site is corrected.

The daily traffic on Audiomart has been steadily increasing. And the amount of high-end audio gear for sale has increased as well. 
They're no longer a second-rate platform.
@uberwaltz , I've had good luck on US Audiomart with about 5 sales. The layout of the classifieds is not very inviting, but it is definitely a viable option.
 My go to site has always been the Gon;
easy to navigate, only good experiences buying and selling, and great interaction on the forum.

I honestly hope they will restore confidence in remaining with this site.

The Admin notified us that they will be providing the classic list view again.
 But since that hasn’t happened yet, methinks that they are not returning to the old format, but trying to incorporate a list view into this mess.

I have seen design problems and mistakes in websites and the IT dept. works 24 hours/day for a fix.
