    Zeke,
     
    Thanks so much for the feedback… we’re not seeing the style issues that you mentioned (overlapping text and things overlapping in general) in our testing…. and we definitely want to get it fixed as soon as possible… would you mind letting me know what Operating System (OS) and Browser you are using?
     
    Also, if you were so inclined, you could send any screenshots of what you’re seeing to me here jeremy@firefield.com
     
    Once again, thanks so much for spending the time and providing the feedback. Very helpful.
     
    Best,
    Jeremy

    Please visit http://www.firefield.com and take a look at the homepage. What do you think this website is for?

    I have some questions for you, is this social network?  A way for businesses or individuals to get organized?  Why would someone want to create a profile with you?  The reason I am asking is because by looking at the homepage it isn’t very detailed as to what the website firefield is used for.  I see stuff about organizing, and socializing, but no statements as to what a person or even an organization can do with your service.

    Take a look at http://www.firefield.com/answers – is this helpful?

    I think they are helpful, but are they clear?  Have you ever looked at the FAQ areas of other websites, very crisp and to the point?  Yours is a bit chaotic, and looks like there are a lot to read in different spots.  Simpler is sometimes better when trying to get your point across.

    What do hate and/or like about the homepage?

    As I said above, not very much is said on the homepage as to what the service has to offer.  This is important to get individuals to want to sign up with you.  If you were to explain on the homepage how invaluable you service can be it would grab customers to it.  What I do like is the layout of the graphics; this is very well done.

    Do you think site would apply to you personally?

    I don’t know, I really don’t know.  I really don’t do much socializing online, and I really don’t have much need for someone to help me organize and keep track of my schedule.  But for those who do need such a service this could no doubt be something that would apply to them.

    The site is completely free and you can sign up using Facebook. Are you able to sign up?

    Yes, I was and it was quite simple to do so.  I was able to sign up through my Facebook account.  In fact I commend you on making this feature where people can use their Facebook account.  It makes it easy to sign up and also eliminates individuals having to create yet another account login.

    Once you sign up, what is the first thing you think you should do on this site?

    I’m not sure, maybe read some of the news articles to get more input on the website. 

    Think of someone who owns a small business or runs a sports team or organization, do you think they’d benefit from this site? Why or why not?

    If the website lives up to its claims of helping to organize task then I think that those in small businesses, and other organizations could benefit from signing up.  However, these types of services need to be made clearer to be able to attract those in the business community
    .
     

    Please let us know any feedback/comments about the site and anything that’s not clear or doesn’t make sense to you.

    As I stated above the homepage isn’t too clear about your services.  This is going to be the first impression that anyone will have of your service, it needs to grab him or her in.  You need to tell them what you can offer that no one else on the Internet can.  Remember that you are trying to grab in customers.  I think you have a good service to offer, for those who could utilize it, and it is certainly easy to sign up for, which is another plus, not to mention that its free.  But you need to really grab the potential customer on the homepage.  Your homepage can either make or break your website
