You guys need some usability testing done on your website. It has taken me a LONG time to find some very simple features that has been very frustrating. If your service wasn't so valuable, I would have ditched it without a second thought.

SomeNumbskull,

If you change and edit a favorite station's details to something other than how it was originally saved into your list (this being using the database synced info), this can create an unmatched status and create duplicates on the site.

The same unmatched status will be shown for someone who adds a favorite into their list through a manual entry (or in other words, manually provides details without using some of the favorite addition methods I described below).

When users add a station to their favorites using information as it is provided into and shared/suggested from the database, without changing or modifying the details with one's own personal changes, then it is almost always guaranteed you will have green check mark "Matched" favorites.

In the case of your FSL, judging by the favorite list screenshots you were talking about before hand, you had added some personal identifiers to your favorite stations list which resulted in the unmatched statuses.

(I do now recall someone sent us a link to your image of unmatched favorites list, and I did take the liberty of matching your stations to our system at that time. These should now be shown as matched in both the websites and mobile apps for you).

The unmatched status with edited FSL names is not a bug, you will get this status by design to let you know you're about to start causing duplicates to the site or posting station information that will lack a station profile and more station details.

"Your bad experience with the 84036 zip code search seems more like user error than site error."

I don't know how, this isn't rocket science. I will post screen shots and exact repro steps once I get to a better editor than paint.

I'm confused. This seems to be a big issues as a result of the “Unmatched” status as a result of editing those station labels. We've had a very spirited debate about this functionality over the past few days.

Don wrote > "There are not many full web services that provide fully functioning mobile apps"

Agreed, but the basic feature set between the two should at least be consistent. Otherwise it’s a bad user experience, like what I found with the 84036 zip code issue.

Don wrote > "I think you're focusing way too much attention on the (purposefully) less emphasized social aspect of the site."

Someone just asked me what I thought was missing from a newer forum. So I listed a few thoughts. I’m far less interested in your forum solution and much more interested in addressing the issues with ZIP code searching and Unmatched status problems with edited FSL station names.

SomeNumbSkull,

I'll try and respond to your concerns in the posting order you've provided them.

Re: your message posted Dec 17, 2013 2:39:34 PM

The zip code search is far from perfect, and we're constantly trying to improve the zip code table. Sometimes it is easier for users to enter an area name (City, State) or use the Show Search Options area drop down menu, rather than primarily search by zip or postal codes. We know that zip/postal code searches on the sites are not perfect, this is a constantly ever-being-improved-upon task. If you're having problems finding an area by searching for it's zip code, you can always email us and we can get the developers to check and ensure that an area is being associated with a certain zip code, and try an area name search.

As noted by many, your Favorite Stations List is found on the home page, below the price lists.

There are a few different ways you can add stations to your favorites. You could a) visit a station's details page and click Add To My Favorites on the station profile, b) When reporting prices using the Report Price utility or the Report Gas Prices page, check off the "Add to my Favorite Stations" box before hitting the Submit button, c) use the provided tools in the Edit my favorite stations hyperlink found at the top of the Member Favorites area to Add/Edit lists.

Information entered in the Comments field is shown below the prices in the price lists, surrounded by "()", or below the prices on the station details page (in the mobile apps).

We ask specifically in each local area's Price Posting Guidelines that station names not be personalized. A personal name is just that, a personal name, that other people may not be familiar with. If you want, you create a favorite station list with the personalized name, and include the station that applies with the station information synced in our system to that list. You could also use the Comments field to share a personalized name if you really want to.

Re: your message posted Jan 8, 2014 3:45:59 PM

Your "Nickname" is your username. This is usually pretty self explanatory.

I notice you said "When I type in my NICKNAME (which is "Someone"), I get an error. Surprising! well, not really) The error tells me "Wrong nickname/email and password combination."

Your username was not "Someone" at the time, it was "Someome"
(acknowledged Jan 9, 2014 11:36:12 AM).

If you're entering the wrong username, of course you're going to get a log in error. I don't know what more we can tell you other than there's not much we can do to prevent user-errors during log in and account registration.

You can use your registered email address as an alternative, in case you forget what your username is. We allow email addresses to be entered as usernames to log in for the convenience of our users (and we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you, though because you were having trouble logging in using a wrongly entered username, and were still able your account assuming you were then signing in with your email, it looks like the email log in availability did help you out).

Re: your message posted Jan 8, 2014 4:06:53 PM

Most mobile app users are unaware that the GasBuddy.com system actually originated from a network of websites. The websites were in existence for many, many years before the arrival of the mobile apps. The apps exploded in popularity and we're still trying to keep up with the ever growing demand stretching 40,000,000+ app downloads across 4 major platforms. Sometimes being able to handle and adjust to the the amount of users trumps inclusion of site features. There's tons of back end work going on that goes without any changes to the client-side of things.

The primary focus of the mobile apps is to find and report prices while on the go.

There are not many full web services that provide fully functioning mobile apps, with this being said, you will generally see less features (or more main features) in a mobile app or mobile website - and some options may require visiting a full website for fully-fledged access.

It's for this reason things like the forums, Fuel Log Book, Trip Cost Calculator, blog access, Master Station List, etc. etc. etc. are not included in the apps.

Yes, you can add and remove stations or lists from the Android app favorites, but any more customization will require a trip to the website. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Your post from Jan 8, 2014 4:14:52 PM appears to be directed towards scoutmaster is geared toward being insulting so I will refrain from spending too much time responding to this.

What I can tell you is, as noted by other members, you can upload photos to your account's personal photo albums and share them in the forums for other people to view.

I would send you direct link to the photo album area but it looks like you've got a hold on using this feature already.

Re: Your message posted Jan 9, 2014 11:19:09 AM

1) I would like the ability to search on a topic that was previously discussed here to avoid repeating asking a question that was already asked.

At the top of the message forum you will find a search entry field labeled "Search for author:" with options to search for "topics by this author" or "messages by this author".

Combined with the "Add to favorite topics" feature, this should be enough to help you keep track of your frequented topics.

2) I also wouldn't mind being able to subscribe to a thread so I can get an email notification when someone replies to a conversation I'm interested in.

Unfortunately this is not a priority feature for our forums and such a feature will probably never be implemented, though it would be nice, forum subscription emails are not a necessity for GasBuddy.

3) posts are uneditable after another post has been made

Regular users have a message editing window of 5 minutes, after this your message is locked in, you can post a correction following your previous message or request a site moderator to make this change for you.

4) I would like to upload an image on the specific thread I'm referencing that attachment

I cannot answer positively as to why these are not available options but I have a feeling the embedding images or inclusion of file attachments was opted out of to help a) prevent and deter abuse and b)aid in faster site load times. It may be, and is a forum necessity for other websites, but a feature like this is not imperative to GasBuddy.

Re: your message from Jan 9, 2014 12:27:01 PM

Long before my time you could use bold and italicized tags (if you can locate messages from 2008-2009 to see as examples), I can't answer positively as to why these were removed. You are correct, however, that these kinds of options are readily available through "standard" and popular paid forum services such as vBulletin (something that we do not part take in).

Implementing and integrating the TapATalk service you've shared into the GasBuddy forums is probably not going to happen. The forums are considred a full website feature only. You can view the forums using your mobile browser and selecting the View Full Website option on the GasBuddy Touch mobile site redirect, if you wish.

I think you're focusing way too much attention on the (purposefully) less emphasized social aspect of the site. TxJeans responses are probably relatively in line with how the site co-founders designed and implemented the forums.

A lot of the features you are describing that you'd like to see on our site's forums are things you would find on fully-designated forum websites (off the top of my head, as an example EvoXForums), which are built off of fully paid subscription forum services.

Being that our site is free and we do not pay anyone a subscription fee for forum software, you will not get all of the "full forum functionality" that you are demanding.

These forums are an additional feature built upon the basic premise of connecting users across the GasBuddy network, after that, all other site features related to station and price information sharing take priority.

Let us know if you have any further questions or concerns.

-Don

Yes threaded messages and reply with quote are nice features. Many sites with those features use third party forum software that costs money.

Most of those forum softwares would not be compatible with posting messages for points for news or forum posts.

Personally, even though I doubt I would ever win a gas card, I would rather they spend the money on prizes than a forum software when the biggest % or more of the threads (topics) are yes/no or other junk that belongs in the JFF.

This is a free site. You are here as a relatively new user and instead of giving constructive criticism you come in with all guns blazing. This turns folks off really fast.

Could this site be better? Yes! Could it be a lot better? Probably. Can you find a better one that is still free? Let me know if you do. In the meantime, I appreciate this site for what it is...

We are waiting on a lot of far more important features than some of the social features you are "requesting".

Toddle around the site a bit, and look around for alternatives. There is no way this site will be ALL things for ALL members. It is your choice what you make out of your time - including time on this site.

I like your new screen name ;-) I bet you can now sign in with your screen name now that you are using the correct one ;-)

I seem to have no need of "nicknames" for my stations. I have no problem telling apart my stations by their MSL, but that is me.

"If you would have taken full advantage of your point earning opportunities instead of moaning and complaining and unmatching stations."

I couldn't care less about the points as a new user. I'm not interested in being on any kind of leader board. I was a casual user without an account until Dec, when I thought I should create one to help report prices. The way I approached this app was no different then any other brand new user, which was not at all intuitive in my opinion. Zip code search isn’t really by zip code, clunky FSL management, stations keyed by text labels... no one else is turned off by these simple feature flaws??

"Tell-A-Friend"

Ah, no. Passing along a recommendation usually comes *after* a great experience. I haven't had that yet, and couldn't believe how hard it was to find simple features... which is what started this whole thread to begin with: the need for some usability testing! Try it. Get a few people in a room who have never used the app. Ask them to perform some of these basic tasks and do not help them. Only watch how they attempt to perform those tasks and see what you now take for granted because you have used the system for so long.

This suggestion is being added to the Suggestion Tracking List based on the ideas expressed in the Jan 9 posts.

FYI, on idea 3), posts don't become uneditable after a reply (that I know of), but rather after 5 minutes have passed from the time a reply was posted.

On idea 4), yeah, that would be nice. At the least, one should be able to embed a thumbnail upon which the reader can click if he so chooses. That would give the best of both worlds, namely low bandwidth for ordinary loading of topics and the ability to at least see what a pix is like without clicking a "mystery meat" link.

In general, I think if you are going to have a community, you should be able to appeal to all flavors, i.e. users should be able to "pollute" any way they please mif they have followings.

It's what you didn't do. You can earn 975/day 6 days a week and 1,075/day 1 day a week. You can also earn a max of 1,200 points from Tell-A-Friend plus you earn 100 points for just signing up. If you would have taken full advantage of your point earning opportunities instead of moaning and complaining and unmatching stations, you would have earned roughly 28,000 point by this time.

5) It would be convenient to access these forums via Tapatalk on my tablet and/or smartphone.

6) of course, this is a much lower priority, but many of the more current forums provide rich text editing controls that have become a simple standard.

As others have said, I don't have to type in my e-mail address; merely my screen name. Depending on your device (computer or mobile app, etc.), you can have your device "Remember me" and not have to sign in repeatedly.

That said, as there seems to be a discrepancy ("Someone" versus "Someome"), you can either continue to use the unique screen name "Someome", or you can request the moderators change your screen name to "Someone" or another screen name of your choice.

If you want to contact the moderators, you can do so either via the Help link at the top of the page or via the Contact Us link at the bottom of the page. You may want to also provide alternate screen name choices in case the name you prefer is taken; moderators will attempt to give you the screen name of your choice in the order you list the choices.

Hope this helps.

"...but then again, we're using this antiquated forum here too, that is also so user-friendly."

What's the big deal that this forum isn't high-tech and the most up-to-date forum. It's not as if it's real-time discussion website; it's simply a place to put random comments (depending on the discussion category), suggestions, and a quick way to get points (in categories created to off-set members from "polluting" (my word) the more substantive discussion categories".

If the issue is that this should be a high-tech, all-encompassing site, then maybe it shouldn't be primarily a gas-price posting website, but rather be revamped into something more aligned with, say, Twitter, and forget the gas price part of the website. The alternative, of course, is to simply join discussions on other websites, or have person-to-person "chats" on (say) Google Chat.

That this is an "antiquated" forum really isn't that big a deal. At least not to me. But then I'm not looking to use this website as a discussion end-all. I use it for periodic comments on a variety of issues, few of which are in the vein of "discussions following newspaper stories/articles", which are much more immediate and substantive. But that's just my opinion.

scoutmaster, you must be a super user! not many achieve that level in their lifetime. congrats!

As for me, the rookie, never used a computer before, I recently cleared my cache and all data (including cookies), which forced me to have to RE-login. Imagine that. You're right, there is usually no reason to log out. Ever. BUT, since I had to, the intuitive thing was to enter what it asked for. That's when I found this. I'd upload a screenshot for proof, but then again, we're using this antiquated forum here too, that is also so user-friendly. And even worse, I probably haven't earned the right to complain about that yet here either.

"Please reconsider doing that." [re: differentiate them with a name (or hint) that I give the station to help me quickly identify which is which.]

OK, so after being pointed to the last place anyone looks for features (at the BOTTOM of the page, which of course is another argument), I see where you can EDIT a station's name (and even specific sort order). That was a nice surprise but again bewildered as to why this is possible on the website but not the mobile app?!

So the FAQ should direct people to the mobile app to create the favorite lists and add the stations they want to see (since that search functionality works better on mobile). Then come over to the web site to arrange the order and rename them (since that's not available on mobile).

Yeah, that's not a bad user experience.

Yeah, that doesn’t sound too tough for new non-technical users.

The fields to log in with are: "Nickname" and "Password"

When I type in my NICKNAME (which is "Someone"), I get an error. Surprising! well, not really) The error tells me "Wrong nickname/email and password combination."

Ohhhhh! I didn't realize by the LABEL that it really wanted my EMAIL address to log in with. Don't bother changing that, just let people know in the FAQ.

It appears this is the case of another new user complaining about the site before getting the lay of the land. Also, this user has left almost half their points on the table since joining. What that indicates to me is we have more of a user than a contributor.

As I have stated in the past, new members should not be allowed to start topics.

" I would really like to differentiate them with a name (or hint) that I give the station to help me quickly identify which is which."

Like Michael said, if you use the comment field and post from the FSL it will show on the price board. The comment field (as flawed as it is not being durable since it is not durable and doesn't force the next person to actively delete it or acknowledge it), is better used to indicate things like credit surcharges, etc.

To help, you might try putting stations in order of drive path, or grouped by "corners"/locations rather than all the Mobils and all the Shells.

"Speaking of adding a station to a favorite list, where do the Comments appear? I have yet to see that work too. Let’s say I have 5 Maverick’s and 4 Sinclair’s in my favorite list of “Stations near Home”, I would really like to differentiate them with a name (or hint) that I give the station to help me quickly identify which is which."

Please reconsider doing that. Those comments show up in the searches and lowest/highest price lists. They are viewable by all and your hints to yourself will likely not mean anything to other users. I found that organizing my favorite stations into separate lists by area/direction of travel, and within each list, re-ordering them into the order I'd expect to encounter them as I passed by them worked best for me. I save my comments fields in my favorite station lists to denote the credit surcharge at a station or to indicate if they sell ethanol-free gasoline, things that are much more valuable for other users to see. I also carry a digital voice recorder with me and for stations which have multiple locations, I note each station by their cross streets or general location. That has been serving me well for almost 3 years.

Your favorites list is below the main price board. Right in front of your nose. You can build as many lists as you need or want and you can add comments to each station so when you post from your FSL (Favorite Station List) the comments will appear. If you don't post from your favorites, the comments won't appear.

The FSL (on the full site) appears by default below the lowest and highest price lists on the home page. Thus to go to your FSL, you click Home.

Typically wherever a station appears on the site, you can add it to your FSL from there and the list grows. Then you can edit the list (controls are at the list top) to put them in order, etc. (also see my post of today in this topic.

I started a guide for this, but got sidetracked a long time ago and never finished it. Maybe you could make some notes while you attend the GasBuddy School of Hard Knocks and we could incorporate what you learn. Send me a PM if you have any questions.

Besides not finding stations through a zip code search as noted in my post about "Make it easier to suggest a new gas station", I was trying to build "My Favorites" lists using the website and still can’t find where to do that! You’d think the obvious place would be under your profile, or somewhere in the “Gas Prices” section. Unfortunately, I’m having no luck again today after trying once more before posting this reply. Maybe I’m blind… I’d love to know where I can view/create/manage these favorite lists online.

The user experience for “My Favorites” is awesome on the mobile app!

Speaking of adding a station to a favorite list, where do the Comments appear? I have yet to see that work too. Let’s say I have 5 Maverick’s and 4 Sinclair’s in my favorite list of “Stations near Home”, I would really like to differentiate them with a name (or hint) that I give the station to help me quickly identify which is which.

Your post is not very helpful w/out posting some suggestions based on what you found so frustrating.
