Just finished the survey, but then it looped me back to the front without the satisfaction of a “you’ve completed the survey” message, and kept some of my responses but not others. Can I just confirm you received it?


#4

@Voltron_Blue I got your input.


#5

I had a simular issue and im unsure if my survey registered


#6

What are you guys seeing at the end? I just tried it and it ends up with a Survey Monkey screen.

FWIW, it looks like both of your surveys are in the database.


#7

Ok good, thanks


#8

Feedback provided, thanks for the site update!


#9

For me, it just looped to the front of the survey again.


#10

Forgot to include in my survey response, but any thoughts of putting together an UMHoops app?


#11

Good call. I’d be a big fan of that too, including willing to pay.


#12

@LeVertAlert @Voltron_Blue What features would you guys look for in an app that wouldn’t be on the website? Anything in particular or just not having to use the website?


#13

Yes, same functionality (reading articles, reading/writing in the forum, plus customizable notifications - i.e. alerts for new articles, when your posts have been responded to, when you’re mentioned, etc). I personally just prefer an app-based solution on mobile vs. a mobile-friendly website that works both ways. Mgoblog is a good example of this…if you polled their users, I bet the majority of them would say they miss the app even though the new site is mobile-friendly. This is working the other way, where it would be a plus to add.


#14

Gotcha. I think the forum is generally pretty good on mobile and the main site is OK. I’d have to look into building out an app and what all would be involved.


#15

I actually don’t think I would personally use an app. I feel “old curmudegon-ey” enough about technology and have too many things on my phone as is. I’m not opposed because I wouldn’t have to download it, but just tossing out one voice that personally doesn’t think they’d get too much value out of it.


#16

Totally get that your bandwidth is finite and there needs to be an ROI. Just letting you know that there’s at least one willing payer out here, and I bet you’d see higher engagement with articles with push notifications. Thanks for asking!


#17

I’m not normally an app user, but if you do create one, I’d recommend looking at the athletic’s app, it is very slick


#18

I just did the whole “put website onto home page icon” thing on my iPhone for both the forum and blog and it’s an app for all intents and purposes. I would probably use an app if it was good, but I don’t view it as an issue and I think the current mobile sites are fantastic.


#19

I think the current mobile site is good. I think the only real added value for an app to me would be push notifications. But, I don’t think that’s necessarily as important for UMHoops. Generally, there isn’t so much content that I am going to miss something.

Hey Dylan,
I tried to subscribe today, but I can’t log in. I’m getting a message that’s there is no record of any user with my email address, but I do get email notifications from the forum. I can’t log in with my user name either.
