Welcome home :-D
DITTO!!! ; ) Welcome home...Cap'n!!! ; ) You've an OUTSTANDING TEAM!!! : D
Am wondering if the images being spoken of, are those of the book covers, as all I've been getting (and still see on my BC Bookshelf from a round of recently registered Children's Books) once I've registered books, is the delightful little white Ballycumber image on the blue background, even though several of the books showed their actual image when I was going through the registration process.
Sadly, I think part of BC's downhill spiral (would SO hate to see it go) may partially be due to the current "security climate" in the world, that is...Wild Releasing (in particular) books these days (which is an integral part of BookCrossing as I see it), as in leaving something unattended somewhere...ANYwhere, but especially around places children frequent...and hospitals, and such...is cause for great concern and scrutinization by others that we didn't see in the beginning.
Moving forward: I'd like to hear from you all what you think the biggest (fixable) problems are with BC currently. You can use this thread to post your thoughts.
I'm committed to doing everything in my power to make sure that doesn't happen. It would be helpful if, in addition to letting me know what BC's problem are, what your ideas for member and revenue growth would be.
I'll wrap this up by telling you the priority of the first three things I plan to tackle:
1. Site performance (starting with change I made today)
2. Site design (It's 2017 forgoshsakes. BC should have a clean, modern design that loads fast and is completely responsive on mobile.)
3. Revenue flow tweaks. It should be far fewer clicks to join Wings, and we should have recurring membership plans and clear benefits for being a Wings member.
To me the site's design is a thing of comfort...like a favorite pair of jeans, or an old shoe...a GOOD BOOK goes without saying...but I will give these things...particularly GROWTH...some deeper consideration. ; )
THANKS FOR EVERYTHING!!! : )
