  • v1 Survey Results

    The survey results are dated 2010. 2011 marks the start of v2. Seems like the people who use GPT sites are ambitious. It’s to be expected, now I think about it, but I never really thought of it that way before. It’s the people who will resort to using a PTC site for money because there’s nothing else, who are the ambitious people.

    PS. I removed the ads from the login page.

    Running Your Price as well as being an experiment, is also a learning process for me. The things I learn along the way, I put into the stories blog category, to take you on a journey of exploration like me. Running Your Price, I learnt a lot of things about people, society, and usability. Back when I was running Your Price for 4 months last year, as well as dealing with an avid marxist, I also learnt about increasing conversions, using my own made up set of guidelines called ifumes. Before I get into what ifumes are, I’ll explain to you my thinking process. (More …)

I don’t know why, but that’s the way it is. (More …)

    v2 is here

    38% of people believe that Your Price needs a redesign. Well guess what? I’ve worked on a new design for v2, as I knew that the v1 design needed improvement.

    The v2 design is modelled to be reminiscent of a wallet. (The design word for this is affordance.) Another improvement of the design is a better colour theme, and that the content flows better as things are contained within a more sensible grid, and black bordered lines. The information bar is new too.

    Below you can see a comparison between v1 and v2.
