The Like Canberra website has had an overhaul that may have helped make it a little more likeable, according to Canberra’s Centenary team.
After receiving nearly 14,000 nominations for things to like about the capital, the Like Canberra campaign last week launched the second phase of its website, asking users to vote on their favourites and narrow the list down to a top 100.
However negative user feedback about the design and usability of the site has led to an overhaul aimed at improving user experience, the Centenary team said in a statement.
‘‘In response to feedback, the Like Canberra website has an enhanced design that makes it easier to navigate and vote. There is also a new feature that makes it possible to ‘unvote’ if people make mistakes,’’ the statement said.
‘‘In addition to voting by category, people can also vote on a list of all likes in alphabetical order by selecting ‘list view’.’’
The voting period has also been extended by two weeks to February 28.
Centenary executive director Jeremy Lasek says the response to the voting stage of the Like Canberra campaign has been ‘‘huge’’.
“There are some interesting trends in the voting, but we will keep these under wraps,’’ he said.
“We wouldn’t want to skew the results in any way – the votes are genuine and heartfelt reflections of how people feel about a very wide range of things.”
A list of the top 100 reasons to like Canberra will be launched at a date yet to be decided, shortly after Canberra’s 100th birthday celebrations on March 11.
