We Relaunched, We Listened, We’re Making Changes: A Note to MSA Readers About Our Latest Site Improvements
At My Subscription Addiction, we believe change can be a very good thing. (After all, we’re a business built on the excitement of trying something new every month!)
Still, when we relaunched our site earlier this month, we also recognized that change always comes with a learning curve. That’s why we’ve been reading through all of your comments (really, all of them!) for feedback on what we can do better. And now, we’re happy to tell you that we’ve already made some changes by adding a few new features that we think you’ll find super-helpful.
Here’s a rundown of what’s new and improved on our platform—thanks to you.
Writing and reading comments is easier
We moved the comment form on each post to the top so you don’t have to scroll to the bottom anymore to share your thoughts— hooray! Also, once you’re logged in, your info will be pre-populated so you don’t have to type it in each time. (Speaking of which, do you have an MSA profile yet? If not, you’re going to want to sign up for one here, because—spoiler alert!—there are many more goodies coming with all of our site updates. This is just the beginning.) Also, we changed the font on comments so they are easier to read. Hope that helps!
Time-traveling comments have departed
That was a great catch, folks; we had comments that were somehow appearing from the future. Technology is tricky, but thanks for helping us catch that. It’s fixed now.
Comments, comments, and more comments
There’s a Load More button for comments now. Before we cut off comments after a certain threshold to make sure the page was fast, but we hear you. The Load More button is after the most recent comments, click it to keep on scrolling through and see what friends are saying. All comments are there as long as they follow our Community Guidelines. TLDR: Let’s just have some fun and be nice.
“The Latest” posts are still here and even easier to find now
We love that you are here to read all about the newest spoilers, news, reviews and deals because our writers are busy making sure you’re up on the freshest intel when it comes to your favorite subscriptions. To make it even easier to get to The Latest, we added it to our Explore Bar, which lives just below our top-of-page content, as you can see below:
Also, all posts now include the date they were published and appear in order of most-recently-written, just like they did on the old site.
“What’s Trending” is now optional
The “What’s Trending” highlights top deals, spoilers, and stories based on the ones that get the most comments. We learned that it might be easier to shrink this section on mobile. Now it’s possible to do so by tapping on the arrow on mobile. Did we mention this feature is only on mobile? Yes, this is only on mobile.
Learning more before deciding if we should review
You all were the inspiration behind our new “Should We Review It?” section, but since launching that feature, we’ve learned that it would be helpful for you to be given some more details on the brand before deciding “No Thanks” or “Yes Please.” You can now click on the brand image to learn more before you vote. Keep those votes coming!
More reviews are coming soon
We also hear that you miss reviews. We do, too! We had to make some tweaks to our day-to-day to work on the site, but we are bringing back more reviews soon so you can learn about the latest brands.
