Ninja Post Featured On StartUpLift invites users to test and provide feedback about your site. Ninja Post used StartupLift to elicit answers to the following questions:

  • Visit Do you understand how to register?
  • Do you feel comfortable registering for the site?
  • Would you prefer a more traditional log in/registration system even if it’s more cumbersome?
  • Are you able to compose a test thread?
  • Are you able to post a reply to a thread?
  • Please share any additional feedback/comments you might have.

The feedback we received was insightful, well detailed, and plentiful. We received 19 comments altogether, which exceeded my expectations. In recent months, most of the feedback we get has come from site admins, so it was exciting to get feedback from end users for a change.

Even though the feedback is mixed, it’s still very useful to know what individual users think about certain design choices.
