    Cruise Dot new Q&A section

    Hi all

    This question appeared on the Q&A section of the Cruise Dot website this morning

    http://www.cruise.co.uk/cruise-answe...estion_168174/

    When they say the old system I presume they mean...........



    What does everyone think of the new Q&A system now you've had time to get used to it? Is it an improvement? Would you make any improvements? Or just go back to the old Q&A, (not the whole website - Just the Q&A section)

    Thanks

    You would get more answers if you didnt have to keep entering name, address, email etc every time you give a reply. Surely signing with a password just once would be enough. Its not as if it is top secret classified information!

      Suffice to say I have not used the new site pages since they were introduced, I stick solely to the forum..

        As stated above in#2 the requirement to continually enter personal details is an"of putter".

          I'm definitely with ILS on this, you need to get rid of the need to enter personal information every time as it's a pain and has put me off ever using it and can't imagine how many others have similarly been put off.

            The need to input personal information every time is really annoying. I rarely post for this reason and when I do I don't bother with the list of cruise lines. Couldn't the Q and A be combed with the forum. It might be an advantage for both.

                I stopped using it a few years ago for that VERY reason! Life's too short!

                  I guess I've got used to the new format. I answer when I can and have no problem with the info input as autofill takes away the 'grind'.

                  Back in the dark ages, the site used to remember personal details but I don't get bothered about lack of details like that because I can make time for 10/20 seconds of 'form filling' if I truly want to help.

                    The Q&A quick search was useful, and I agree with other comments about entering details all the time,one password would suffice.

                        Shouldn't need any sort of autofill tool as you've aleady signed in for goodness sake. The last time I used the Q&A I entered my details as Mickey Mouse, Cheese Cottage, Disneyland , Florida and it accepted it quite nicely, so basically there's no point asking the flipping question in the first place.

                          I have no objection to signing in each time with autofill but it was quicker when the site remembered your details. I have the xxx approach. Much quicker.

                              I find it okay if you're answering someone else's question, but searching for a topic already raised is something else again

                              I always used to check if my questions had been answered before, but now I just ask on the forum and hope I'm not causing too many repetitions

                              Cheers,
                              Lynn
