Win a free, personally dedicated Oxford Companion

2 Nov 2006 by JR

There is no doubt that the world of wine on the internet is an exciting one, as witness yesterday’s news of a new British element to erobertparker.com and heavy advertising of 'the world's most popular wine website' (winespectator.com). 

The current, eminently sensible online trend is to maximise all means available of discovering what users themselves want. I would of course like to keep developing and improving this site and would very much like to hear from you about what you like and, particularly, dislike about jancisrobinson.com. In the old days I might have asked you to send suggestions via email but now we have the delightfully simple and open method of your posting comments in the box below. Using a similar co-operative system of sharing views and information we have already made quite a number of refinements to the members’ forum on purple pages.
 
We would be particularly grateful for any constructive suggestions for how to make this site better. Not all of them may be technically possible to achieve but I promise to address all of them positively.
 
I would also like to send a personally dedicated copy of the new, 3rd edn of The Oxford Companion to Wine to the person who sends in the most useful suggestion(s).
 
As you may remember, we moved to a new platform in September and there are still some aspects that Subhub know need attention including: 
  • refining the general search function
  • improving the print function (printer icon top right)
  • reinstating the ‘send to a friend’ function (envelope icon top right)
  • reinstating the tag function whereby you can easily be directed to a list of other articles on a similar topic
  • moving the ‘add a new topic’ box to the top of the list of topics in the members’ forum  
Please bear in mind that we are already all too aware of the shortcomings listed above.
 
We would be extremely grateful if you could answer the following questions:
 
  1. If you are not a purple pager and would like to win the signed Oxford Companion, could you please supply your email address and your location as the system will describe you simply as 'Anonymous'.
 
  1. What do you like least about the site?
 
  1. What do you like most about the site?
 
  1. How do you suggest we should improve it?
 
 
With very many thanks for getting this far and hopes that together we can continue to improve jancisrobinson.com.
