    Default What do you think of the new MetService website

    I often check the weather situation at the MetService website but I find the new website design too busy and after some days of sticking with it I was about to search for another site with a more simple layout when I discovered that MetService has an option to select the old site still

    the new site is awefull. Looks prettier & more modern, but actually worse .
    Usual case of spend our money to fix something that wasnt broken .

    Thanks for the info about still being able to access the old site. Its much better for a quick look.

    Don't like it at all, the previous one was clear, concise and easy to follow my area or further afield. Yes agree it is far to busy.

    You have my 100% agreement! I'm pleased to be back at the 'old' site and I hope that they don't try to coerce us over to the 'new' site.
    Either go where you're looking or look where you're going!

    Thanks for telling that - I'll share with a number of my friends.

    best..comment..ever (facebook) " Looks like Metservice’s “New Coke” moment"

    "One of New Zealand's most important and popular websites has undergone a $1.7 million revamp based on the scrutiny of more than 1000 people."

    $1.7M. God help us. Another NZ Dept wasting money .

    Obviously, they didnt get an real world Joe(Jane) Average bloke to test it first .
    Look at the feedback on FB. Theres a lot of hate on the new look

    As a person who has not used the old one, did the same as piroska.

    Loaded up the two side by side, worked through various sections on each. Not really bothered. Personally I liked the newer one better.

    First thing that comes to mind - EXACTLY the same thing as Windows, changes are made and people don't like things changing, BUT have an open mind about it and its not that bad.

    I had a brilliant example of that the other day, put Windows 10 on a new PC in, the person said its so hard to use -REALLY-- OK lets try this - fired up W7 and W10 put them side by side- when doing certain tasks on both it was --- OH its not that different after all, in fact W10 looks easier in some ways-------- The metservice site will be the same

    ONLY thing that may be different is it may display differently in a phone than a real computer.

    Some of us dont live in their phones.

    The old layout was much better than the new one.
