theNational.ae website – usability failure

Description

“Registration for new users is temporarily suspended while we implement a web redesign. Apologies for any inconvenience and please watch this space for new developments.”

That’s the message I got when I attempted to register myself to post a comment that I had prepared for one of the stories – after spending almost half an hour writing it in a Word processor!! Is it not common sense that if a new design is in the works, why not simply disable the “Please log in to post a comment” label altogether to avoid something this?

TheNational seriously needs a design overhaul anyway considering they lack the social media elements. And a tip – instead of implementing a user registration system simply utilize APIs to authenticate users who already have accounts with various social media sites such as Google/ Facebook/ Twitter, etc – it will encourage more people to comment.

All the best!! You need it theNational!
