Hi Team Titleist,

We've been busy behind the scenes again and making some enhancements to the layout of the Beta view. We heard a lot of great feedback from everyone and went back to the drawing board on the Discussions layout to incorporate some of the suggestions we received.

As you will see, we've reverted back to more of a stacked, chronological view of the posts and we've added some more post details at the top level of the categories to help provide a glimpse of the recent activity.

We've also updated the "What's Trending" page to be a little more uniform in it's layout while providing new filtering options at the top of the page. Now you can easily select which stream of updates you want to explore from the TT Blog and Discussions to our Twitter feeds and Facebook updates along with our Instagram feed.

If you don't already follow us on Instagram, check us out here: www.instagram.com/titleist

Most of these updates went live yesterday and we would love to hear what you all think about this latest release.

As always, keep the suggestions coming!

Cheers,

Mike

Hi Mike,

    Wow....that's much better...!! The "old beta" looked very haphazard.....it was hard to find and follow the topic you were interested in.....

     Great work......hopefully now the team will have time to switch gears and work on the Android app..!!

The updates are very neat and tidy.  I guess I was in the minority that didn't mind the old beta layout.  

Keep up the great work.

The new Beta site is a big improvement over the first version....it would be cool if the functionality allowed you to scroll the discussions up and down while the categories on the left remained still.

The new Beta layout is much more intuitive and easy to follow.  The first thing i would select in the previous Beta version was "View TT Classic" so the items were presented in a more organized, chronoligical order.  The updated Beta version does a great job of combining some of the elements from the original beta version with the linear organization of the original format.

Keep up the good work and thanks for all of your efforts!

Mike, really digging the enhancements and it feels so much cleaner.  It'd be cool to eventually load any images from the thread as the preview image and only use the stock ones as a default when an image isn't uploaded by a user.

Thanks!

Love the new feel...easier to follow.  Great job TT Staff!!!

Mike - much improved design.  I really like the "stacking".  It was too busy in the other format.  Also, appears that the names of the thread titles are a larger font.  Very nice indeed!  

Thanks for the updates!

when will mobile site be up?

I didn't use the old beta, this one is usable.

Hopefully all the "script stop working" while on TT classic will stop now while using the new beta.

Mike:

I agree with previous comments.  The layout is much better and easier to follow.

Great Job.

What about the blog content? I haven't seen any contests that I know many of us are interested in.

Hi kbsmith,

We still run plenty of contests and sweeps throughout the site. We recently just completed a couple of great sweeps including our latest where you had a chance to win a tour prototype Vokey wedge that was gamed by Jason Dufner. Here is the link to the post:

http://www.titleist.com/teamtitleist/b/tourblog/archive/2013/02/26/from-the-tour-to-you-introducing-the-vokey-design-k-grind-wedge.aspx

Stay tuned to the blog and discussions to make sure you don't miss any exclusive opportunities...

Hi Mike,

      You guys do run some great contests and sweeps.....but someone needs to work on the posting of winners. If you go to the rules for the Jason Dufner Vokey wedge post (to see when the contest ends) it says "This contest is currently inactive".....and no winner is posted yet. And, the area under "Sweepstakes Winners" hasn't been undated in a while.....

       Thanks...!!

Hi Bill,

Thanks for the feedback. Just to help clarify, we do post winners quite frequently but the location has changed. Instead of the sweeps winners page, you can find winners at the bottom of the individual sweeps pages.

Here is an example: 2013 Pro V1 and Pro V1x Sweepstakes

In terms of the Dufner sweeps, we are in the process of verifying the winner's details so until we are able to confirm eligibility, we can't post any details.

Hope this helps.

Mike and team - well done on the new beta view layout.  It is much easier to follow, like the classic view, but adds the visuals too.

I was going to say the same thing so thanks Mike for pointing that out!

Now will the random contests that pop up in the General forum be added too (ie the recent one for the polos, balls, etc)?

Thanks for all of the great opportunities!  We appreciate it!

Hi Justin,

For the contests in the discussions, we always update those threads with the winner's names to keep all of the details contained within the thread.

Thanks for the updates Mike and team for the improvements.

HI Mike,

     Thanks for the clarification. If that's the plan going forward, I'd like to suggest that when a winner has been selected, but not announced yet, that some verbiage be added to the post that says that......it might save you and the team from fielding questions while you're in the process of verifying the eligibility of the person selected.....

      I think it would also be great if the dates for the sweep were included more consistently, and prominently, in the body of the posting, including the end date, and the expected date for the announcement of the winner.

      I usually use the rules to find this information, so that's why I was a little surprised that the rules for the Dufner Wedge Sweeps were no longer available when you click on the link in that posting.

      Not trying to make things more complicated.....more trying to save you and the team some time, so you can think up more contests and sweepstakes for us...!!

                                                                                        B.P.

Thanks for the feedback and input, Bill. We'll keep the suggestions in mind.

Ha, it looks like I was the only one who liked the previous version better.  I agree that it was sort o messy, but I liked reading the comments without having to go into the discussion.  I like this version, but I feel that once you got used to it it was much simpler.

Here's the first negative

What happened to "my discussions"?

Quintin H


Nevermind

I was looking and looking, came to this thread and hit reply, I went to the logon then I posted where is my discussion, then went back to discussions and there it was. duh guess it won't show my discussion if I'm not logged in.

Quintin H


Well my discuusions is there, but it won't let me stay there.

Even using the back button it switches me back to all discussions.

Something else to look at

I really like the new layout. I have been hitting the TT Classic button because I found the Beta layout difficult to follow. That will no longer be necessary. Thanks

Good catch, Quintin. The team is releasing a fix to that one shortly.

Thanks again!

Hey Mike

When they have time how about seeing about letting me stay in "my discussions" until I click on "all discussions" like TT classic did.

Now

I go to "my discussions", click on the top discussion, read it, If I click on discussions(on the left side of screen), or click on the back button on my browser, I go back to "all discussions".  I can't stay in "my discussions".
