IBM's scoreboard on the US Open site sucks

Why couldn't they have stuck to the scoreboard that we are so used to seeing?

The color combination is awful. Plus there are scroll bars to read through bios and stuff (I wish some of these companies would get the design patterns of web 2.0)

Re: IBM's scoreboard on the US Open site sucks

Lets not turn this into a Euro vs US thread. The scoreboard sucks. Lets blame it on IBM which, let's not forget, is a global firm..

Re: IBM's scoreboard on the US Open site sucks

It's awful - don't like the match stats pop up display which you could have down the bottom last year. As someone who has managed the creation of a few major british sites the scoreboard is a mess!

I never use the independent scoreboard anyway, just the page with all the scores on them.

I don't care about the design but I totally agree with you. It has slowed up my computer considerably.

Re: IBM's scoreboard on the US Open site sucks

So, has anybody offered this negative feedback and commentary to the USO website in the hopes that you can influence them to change it for next year? Curse the darkness or light a candle?

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: IBM's scoreboard on the US Open site sucks

Fee, They seem to have a generic "contact us" page. I will send the feedback to them on that. I will wait for maybe another couple of hours to see what additional suggestions MTF members have, compile the list and send it over.

Re: IBM's scoreboard on the US Open site sucks

Actually, its best to send your own, in your own words. And everyone else too. I think the quantity of individual emails from all over the place would have more impact than a list sent by one guy. But I'm glad to hear that you know where the feedback form is.

Re: IBM's scoreboard on the US Open site sucks

Better colour differentiation between sections -
Ability to have stats showing and not interfering with seeing the scoreboard at the same time
Generally tidy it up so it's more intuitive to watch and use
It shouldn't be hogging that much speed it's making my PC fans go crazy and I don't remember the wimbly board doing the same.

Re: IBM's scoreboard on the US Open site sucks

Yeah, it kills me computer, although my system is pretty new. And it's way too big.
I was starting to think that 1 GB Ram memory for Win XP wasn't enough. Good to know that I am not the only one.
