Introduction and Help
Context of comment:Simon, you have asked for feedback ref the new website feature and here's my twopence worth.
First you note that new users find the site hard to get into. It's no easier for the rest of us: it's just that we've got used to its ..... idiosyncrasies
I promote it to any poor soul backed on to an arete and have done so for all the years I have been on board; and to a man/woman, they revert to me with how very good the concept and info are but also how very user unfriendly it is.
It certainly doesn't have the slick urgency of high end perfume advertising or cars or exotic hols - but maybe that's​ not what you want.
On both your and my experience of feedback it is definitely high time there was an "intro page" at very least and with the basic offerings on show - and that's what we now have.
So initiative 100%, concept 100%, direction 100% - but application ... ?
The new menus came to me as an overlay to an already very busy and complicated page - and made me reach for the Annadin. Frustration more than migraine - because really all it needs is for the site to open on a simple still background of some mountain icon with these overlays on it.
A welcome to mountainviews before you go burrowing into its entrails.
So in conclusion, albeit just mine, a very good thing but realised to its full potential perhaps with some tweaking.
Lastly - not sure about your observation that the experienced user does "not always realise there are easier ways to do things".
It is my long experience in the communication industry that if the target doesn't get it, it's not because the target is dumb; it's because one hasn't communicated it as effectively as one could.
