Hey, Look Us Over!
We need your help!! As you can see, things have changed a bit at AccountingWEB. We have a shiny new site with lots of exciting features. As with any transition, there are a few bumps along the way, and we're going to spend the next few days looking for problems and fine-tuning the site. Because we think of AccountingWEB as a site that belongs to our readers as much as it belongs to us, we look forward to hearing from you regarding your reaction to the new site, any problems you might have with navigation or finding the items you're looking for, and any parts of the site that look like they're not working properly.
Simply post a comment below and let us know your reactions, comments, and any issues you might be having. Also, we really hope you like the changes we're making, and we'd like to hear about that too!
