I’ve posted a few (to say the least) posts talking about how the usability of the GoErie site could be drastically improved (1-Brief Go Erie Web 2.0 evaluation, 2-Go Erie: One Month Later, and 3-Go Erie…still the same site). Kristin Lynch, Interactive Brand Manager for GoErie.com even commented on my second post about GoErie thanking me for my evaluation and saying that “some [of the suggestions] are worth adding now. It’s been 7 months since that comment- I have yet to see any of my suggestions put into effect. In fact, when compared to the screen shots I took in November, the site looks exactly the same. An Erie Blogs reader recently took a screenshot and wrote in about the “Help Wanted” section of the GoErie Classifieds page. Apparently “none of these links have worked in 3 months,” as claimed by the reader who sent in the screenshot, which can be viewed here, along with comments by the author of the post. I couldn’t agree more with Dennis Weed, the author of the Erie Blogs post:
“BetaJohn has tried and tried to get Erie Times News and GoErie to fix their problem with the employment classified links. The Help Wanted link was recently fixed to reflect their switch over to HotJobs but none of the links for the sub-categories work. Maybe one of the job listings is for help in their IT department or a management position. If someone takes the time to make that graphic and email me, they are frustrated. Please fix it.”
Thanks Dennis, for sharing this concern brought up by one of your readers.
