Default Puberty101.com

I have mentioned this a little while back. But on google, puberty101 is the 4th result after searching for "puberty". So this must mean it will get many hits.

But whoever maintains that site, have done a very bad job (no offense to whoever it may be). But come on, it's black with bright green writing. It's very messy, and looks like it has been knocked up by some 12 year old in 20 minutes.

Puberty101 is probably what brings in a great deal of our members.. and to put it simply, the site is a complete shambles.

Check it out yourself: www.puberty101.com

Well I'm pretty sure the site is maintained by the GovTeen people, so I think that needs to be brought up with them...

Mainly, but Ben is involved with them and can bring it forward to them or something.

As far as I know the GovTeen admins and Ricky (a GovTeen member that owns the site) are working on a new design.

Anyway, you may be suprised to know (I most certainly was) using Google Analytics, which monitors where our traffic comes from, very little traffic comes from puberty101. 6% of our visitors find VT through puberty101. Majority of our traffic (about 65%) find us through Google searches.

So its sort of a good thing we aren't entirely dependent on it but then again we probably could get more traffic if it had a presentable design. I know if I was signing on the very first time, I'd take one look and probably wouldn't stay on long and go some place else.

Puberty101 has potential to be so much more but redesigning an entire site from the ground up takes time I can imagine.

That's less than I thought. But like you said, it has huge potential. I was basing what I said on most of the older members, as a good majority found thair way here through P101.com

I think that they should just change the background and better organize it. Right now it just looks like one big mess.

It needs a complete makeover, so things are easy to find and give it a more professional look, in the same way the VT homepage was updated.

Yeah, it defiantly needs a make over but I remember before that it didn't look like that, it just looked like http://www.puberty101.com/p_circumcision.shtml like the layout, with it being white and all. Wonder why they changed it...

Yeah... You can tell that the person who had did it did not hire a web designer, and also it is never updated

I can remember one instance where a member wanted to know where he can ask a question like they had on there but obviously the forums are better.
However, I agree it needs to be redone.

I agree.
By the way it's not up to anybody at VT to get P101 fixed. We don't run that site, we just advertise there.

just a point on the VT banner,

I know its original but it really doesn't sum up the site and what our forum has to offer, perhaps maybe a fresh banner on VT could sparkle that site up at bit?
