Feedback on magazine

Postby ghmpwife » Sun Feb 28, 2010 10:09 am

I am very pleased with the content of the WDYTYA? magazine, and always find something of interest but find the layout confusing when turning the page in the middle of an article. Frequently the first piece on the next page, although related to the main article, goes off at a tangent and could quite easily be fitted in after the main piece. It would be easier to keep the continuity.

I have subscribed to the magazine for some time now and think it helpful and informative. It is the best general purpose magazine I know covering a wide variety of interests. I recently showed it to a Australian relative who was visiting and she was quite impressed.
I particularly like the then and now photographs especially of areas I have visited. I found the one of the Birmingham Bull ring very interesting as it shows the church where a family ancestor was married and the modern one was a revelation as I haven't been there for almost 40 years.
I have finally plucked up sufficient courage to use the website to ask for help and would like to say Thanks to everyone involved.
Please continue to provide a separate CD of information

Hello, thank you for your feedback. I assume that you are referring to our 'background' boxes that sometimes take up a full page in our features? We are currently working on a redesign of the entire magazine so any feedback like this is very helpful. We will make it clearer what is a 'boxout' and what is part of the main copy in future. While we are working on the redesign, now is a good time for anyone to comment on the 'usability' of the magazine. We will also be 'restructuring' the magazine working on feedback that we have been getting from our Reader Panel. If you want to be involved in giving feedback on the magazine, you can join our Reader Panel at www.bbcmagazineinsiders.com.
