arenaband.com - New Website
« on: Thu, 2011-10-27, 23:16:40 »
Evening all,

just thought I'd ask for feedback on the website/twitter pages that we've just set-up, and although there's still loads to do, would like to know what you'd like to see on there?

We're planning videos and blogs from the Tour starting next week...

keep feeding back and let me know your thoughts! I'll feed back to the band

cheers!

The website is aesthetic and intuitive, and that's a good thing: it's very easy to find what you are looking for. I can't think of any advice for now, except that a DVD section for the discography would be nice and promote Caught in the Act and Smoke and Mirrors. The Cage releases are also missing. Great work overall  *horns*

The website is looking very good, I look forward to the the tour updates and more info in the band past/present section. I would also like to see included again the Tour Archive that's on ArenaWorld (but incomplete) with all the past gigs Arena ever played which is a great overview and reference. And not for now but when the guys are back in the studio once more a blog about the progress of a new album would be a cool feature.

In the discography as mentioned the DVD's are missing as well as the compilation Ten Years On. The Cage releases may be excluded as they aren't Verglas general release albums and you can read about them at the Cage website.

Regarding the album covers: there seems to be a colour difference running through all of them, there's a diagonal separation in two halves, the covers would look better if this were fixed.

Thanks for the feedback everyone, I'll be working hard on the site over the next few months - you are the customer so it needs to give you what you want!!! I'll take all the points on board and start working on them whilst on tour!! keep checking back for Tour updates and add comments if there is more you'd like to see!!

cheers

Alright, my two cents:

When I click on discography, we can see the whole Arena catalog.
But there are some tabs:
"All", "Live Albums" "Compilation", "Reworks", "Studio"

In "Live Albums" I miss the "Smoke And Mirrors" dvd.

In "Compilation" I miss the "Ten Years On" disc. Besides, I don't really see "The Cry" as a compilation disc. These are more reworkings and there's a 'bonus track' (The Healer).
I would put "The Cry" and "Edits" along with "Contagious" and "Contagium" under the tab "EPs and singles" or something like that.

In "Reworks" there are the two EPs "Contagium" and "Contagious". I don't see why they're called 'reworks'? I can only think of the two remixes, but the rest of these two discs are brand new songs.

For now, that's all I can think of. :)

Yep,  8). Also a tour update with Paul Manzi. I really appreciate the way they're keeping the website up-to-date  *horns*.

Really enjoyed the tour updates from the band members and the pictures. Too bad it stopped after 16th November. Would have loved to see more from f.e. the Germany and Zoetermeer (!) gig 8). Or will that be added later Twig?

Simple.
I cut and paste the arenaband link, and this 'award winning' site came up on my screen.
Obviously I pushed the X instead of ok. ;)
