Softpedia suggestions/feedback?
« on: March 13, 2016, 12:17:09 PM »
Anyone know how to send suggestions/feedback to softpedia.com?

Every software description starts with "a simple and reliable software to..." so that it does no good to view the description snippet in the list.  You have to open every unfamiliar entry to get a clue what it does.  A lot of wasted effort.

I see no feedback or suggestion button anywhere.

That must be on purpose, they want you to click through, so they can serve you more ads  :huh:

Could be.  Every posting is a "review" now by some named individual.  It used to be that at least the category of the program was in the snippet.  Whatever software they use to put the snippet in the list should be set to start at the word following the white space 40+ characters in or so.   That's all it would take.

It seems like a recent development.
