    ECarIndo.com - Feedback, please!




    Would understand what would happen if only "Click" was written and not "Click to open advanced search?"

    Is too cheerful?

    And would you understand if "Pull" was used? However, I was worried of how the user might and click and drag instead. Then again, I am aware of the fact that if the user does so (click and drag), the box would open up anyway.

    I think just 'Click' is understandable.

    I would think Pull is more confusing.

    Good Luck!

    I actually think you should leave "Click to open advanced search" as it is... it explains what happens, rather than simply inviting the user to "click" with little expectation for what should happen.

    Otherwise, the site looks nice, though I wish there was a link to review in my own browser.

    One thing though - shorten the text in your header image. I don't like how it goes onto two lines.

    If I didn't have that arrow as to what it did, I wouldn't know. I think you should make sign up a little bigger because I barely noticed it. Overall, nice site. I like it

    It's not 'too' cheerful, it's nice to see a chirpy site.

    I think you should leave the "Click to open advanced search" as it is. However if you're concerned it's taking up too much room, perhaps you could make the ring larger, and simply put the word 'Click' inside.

    I still like it as is though

    I'm a bit iffy on the "Sign Up" bar though, I think it would look nicer as a button along with the others. Maybe just keep the text orange to make it stand out from the crowd...

    The site looks great.
    I don't like a simple arrow being placed to guide the user to browse the needed.
    Perhaps increased weight ( to some points) on the arrow with a colorful representation would look better.

    Anyway good luck with your site

    I would put the logo ecarindo on the top left rather then the right.
    I think 'click to open advanced search' explains it best.

    I would make the advances search option look more like a button.

    The pull would be ok, If you make it part of a larger clickable area. but if you have to tell someone to click here for advanced options, then you have a design issue.

    How about:
    Click for advanced search
    Jump/go to advanced search
