New and improved Boxwish site launches!
Posted on October 24, 2009
Back in July we donned our party hats, wheezed into our blow-outs and got squiffy on punch celebrating the first birthday of Boxwish and now we’ve got a new reason to make merry (and scoff a scrummy cake – see image) as today marks the launch of the new and improved Boxwish. Yes, we’re not ones to sit on our laurels and from day one have strived to bring you the most exciting and dynamic site for those itching for a little movie inspiration in their lives, one that we’re pleased to announce has received a few touch-ups and comes to you now in a bright and shiny new package – huzzah! Read over to find out about some of the brand, spanking new features and how you can be a part of the next stage.
A quick glance at our home page and it’s clear to see all the thrilling changes. We’re making the site more intuitive, helping you navigate around it with greater ease. This makes everything you do here easier and simpler, from adding a Spot to shopping for all your favourite Twilight goodies. And there’s plenty more for you to do now, so why not unleash your inner movie critic and rate the movies on our five star scale? Add any actors or films that we’ve somehow overlooked (a great chance to impress with your knowledge of German expressionism, Studio Ghibli or the past charms of Cary Grant) or even keep up-to-date with developments on your favourite stars, films and Spots (great news for updates regarding the availability of products) by Following them.
Of course, it’s not a completely new site. We’ve kept the same engaging editorial content in our Magazine section, (which now serves up your Blog along with more in-depth List and Feature articles in one handy feed) and all the energy and passion for movies remains undiminished. We’re talking evolution not revolution. And to help us make your site even better, please do send us your feedback (see tab on the left side of the page). We love hearing from you all and during this period of change, our ears are well and truly open to any suggestions you throw our way.
If you had an account with the old site, this will still be valid and if you’re new to our corner of the Internet – welcome! – it’s easy to create an account and doesn’t take a minute. Please can we ask for a teenie, weenie bit of patience as we make the switchover as we’re still in the process of refining and adding stuff. And that’s it! Explore, have a wander, and let us know what you reckon. Enjoy!
