    Fire Help Us Get Organized & We'll Help You Get Organized too!


    Welcome to our Budget101 Challenge Question! We'd like you to help us, Help You! Yes, you read that correctly! Sometimes when guests and new members join, they have a difficult time navigating the site with all that it has to offer. After all, it currently has over 560,000+ Thousand Pages of information that we've accumulated since 1999. Our problem is, we don't want to overwhelm new guests and members when they join, we'd like them to be able to find the content they're seeking quickly and easily; Which begs the following Challenge Question . . .


    The Challenge Question is : What would you like to see added to the site (or changed) that, in your opinion, would be most helpful to help new visitors/members learn about the various features and layout, to make it easier to find your way around?

    There are SO many ads that it clutters up the site and makes it more confusing. I realize that you need to make money but maybe less is more?

    Currently there are several levels of membership. The more active a member is in the community, the fewer ads they see. Also we have a Supporting Member option, which provides an entirely ad free user experience for less than .70 per WEEK.

    The only thing that I can think of girlfriend is to have a read only spot that all newbies are forwarded to when they join. You could then share the mission of the website, how to navigate, and search for what they are looking for;-D

    AND...Happy New Year!

    I realize people know what FAQ means for the most part, but someone may not know which area what they want to see is icon wise..maybe a "first time here" "lost" type easily seen section...with a binocular ion?..with navigation tips etc, which I know you already have, in an easily seen font would help. Also explaining that the ads will go away with participation would help..they can be overwhelming, especially the ones that yell at you.

    When a new member registers, they should be given a section up front to fill in their profile.

    As someone that is new to this site, the only thing that I can think of to improve is to make sure that your links work. I tried to enter for the fitbit and download the ebook and was told that the page was not found. I finally was able to register and download yesterday afternoon.

    I would like to see things a little more organized. I routinely have to use the search option to find something I thought should be in one place, only to find in in another.

    Yes, an introduction and summary of the site, with an optional "walk-through" or "tour" would be nice. Also, the pages are a little cluttered or too "busy." I think it would be possible to move things around a bit and re-size ads when possible to accommodate info and ads without the busy-ness.

    It is difficult for a newbie to find out where to edit profile. This should be in the banner at the top.

    If you wanted to get really fancy, you could make a tutorial that shows people around the site, and on the front of the home page make a "Newbies Start Here" button to take people to it.

    Place all registration information into the series of windows not just username, password, and email. Items that should be included should be mailing address, new member directions etc.

    This is only my second time at your site. It's different, but I'm enjoying browsing around. So far the only issue I've had is remembering my password. I didn't locate a "forgot my password" tab anywhere. That might be helpful. BTW obviously I remembered my password.
