Good afternoon Badgers!
I wanted to give you a quick update on some changes we’re hoping to add to the site in the next few weeks or so.
We were asked about a leaderboard on the draw pages. It was something we’d considered before but as we chatted on comments about it, we’ve now decided not to implement something at this time. We couldn’t settle on a format we liked that so we’ve put it to one side for now.
Chat & Comments
We’ve been worried about the Facebook comments for a while now as they do slow down load times on the page. We’ve tried Disqus at the bottom of the page, so we are going to choose one or the other. I think as some people don’t like Facebook or don’t want everyone to know what they’re up to commenting on pages etc, we’re likely to choose Disqus for comments across the site. However… for those that would just like to have a natter and chat about all sorts, I think we’ll add a new Chat page with both Disqus and Facebook comments on so you can still chat together. This is only a maybe at the moment, but I think keeping it moderated that way would be much easier 🙂 I hope that sounds ok to everyone.
Adverts on the site
We’re still trialling new networks and ensuring we get things right but in the next month we’ll be moving to better rotation systems and management. It’ll allow us to better add different ones in different places. We’ll also be making sure to not stuff too many ads on site and we’ll be featuring other lottery sites in the rotations to help you all remember that though we’re the best Badger site, there are others available too 🙂
We’ll also be working heavily on the B2B page to offer businesses across the country the chance to sponsor a draw. It’s our hope that we can help spread the word about businesses that can offer prizes or services to anyone within the UK. If you know anyone that might be interested in this, please do let them know.
Much, much, much more….
We’ve lots of updates coming soon. Some behind the scenes and some more visible. We’ll be updating the Updates page to have a counter so you can see when we’ve posted something on there (or at least that’s the plan). We’ll also be adding much more features that you will see, with the hope of a new game for instant wins…. as always… for free 🙂
Enjoy the weekend and don’t forget to spread the word. The more badgers, the more we can give away 🙂
