Website Transition Complete!
We continue to learn and grow, always striving to be better. In that vein we corrected our two primary issues with the website; ease of use for mobile devices and site speed. When I first built the site I had no idea that about 70% of internet users are on their mobile device. The initial site focused on computer use with only a barely functional mobile interface. No more! We scrapped the entire thing, and rebuilt focusing on mobile, while ensuring looks and functionality for tablets and computer.
Regarding site speed, the website was initially loading in 15 to 18 seconds. I’m so grateful (and amazed) that people hung with us thru that pain! There is no place in this universe for a 15 second load time, and it took me some time to get my head around it. So, we switched servers and I reworked the entire site from top to bottom to respond better. Results? While it may not always be so, front page load times are averaging under 3 seconds. That’s more like it!
I encourage you to take the website for a spin and let us know what you think; I really do appreciate constructive criticism. As an interesting note, the site colors are inspired by the ocean; art imitating life. Anyway, in the end we want to be your FDGS (Friendly Distant Gaming Store) as we love the gaming scene as much as you! I believe a better internet site will go a long way in helping us realize that vision. Take care, and I hope to see you in the aisles!
