We like to move it, move it
7 May 2015
From time to time, we experiment with improvements to the website, and from early May some of you will see StarNow a little differently.
The main navigation links (My Profile, Auditions & Jobs, Talent Directory, etc.) are moving from the left-hand side to the top of every page and we're reorganising things a little bit. We think the new layout will be much tidier and simpler, and will work better on mobile devices.
What's changed in the new version?
- The navigation links have moved from the left side to the top of every page.
- If you're signed out, you'll only see Auditions & Jobs, Talent Directory and a new link, My StarNow, along the top.
- When you sign in, a link to Messages and your Profile are at the top right of every page.
- The new My StarNow option puts links to My Profile, My Applications, Messages and My Listings in one handy location.
- Sign out is now at the bottom of every page. Community is also at the bottom of every page.
We think these changes will make it easier for you to search for auditions & jobs, apply, and get cast. However, instead of making one sweeping change, we want to test the waters and get some feedback from our members first.
I can see the new version - how do I give feedback?
You can email us with your thoughts.
