The Muddy Matches website has had a face lift! Behind the scenes, we have spent a good part of this year working on a fresher-feeling and mobile-friendly website; we hope you like it!
So what can you expect from the new website?
Mostly, the changes have been aesthetic. You will notice that we have gone for a much cleaner look, which is more in line with what people expect from a website these days; as much as we loved our old website, the original design work was done in 2006 and it was starting to show!
These days, we like to access our accounts on the go and so the other major change is that the new website is fully “responsive”, meaning that you can easily access it from any device, be that the dusty old desktop computer in the farm office, or the latest whizzy tablet. Those accessing the site from a mobile device will notice a more “app-like” experience without the need to download a specific app – we do of course still have our own dedicated iPhone and Android apps for those who prefer this.
There are no new features as such at this stage, but we have been tweaking what we have already got to try and improve the user experience. You will notice, for example, that the messaging system has been completely overhauled and, with all the conversations between you and another person now on one page, we think you will find it much easier to keep tabs on what you have said to whom!
We’re here to help
We hope that you will find your way around the new site easily and get to grips with any of the functionality changes without a problem. However, if you are struggling with anything, please remember that you can get in touch with our Customer Care team who will be happy to help you. Please write to email@example.com.
We have tested and tested the new website until we are blue in the face and are happy with what has been released. However, there is always a chance that we have missed something, or that version 8.4 of one particular browser throws up a weird bug on a certain device that we haven’t spotted. Therefore, if there is anything that doesn’t seem right or that is affecting your user experience, please let us know and we will try to resolve it as soon as we can. Please report any technical issues to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The clocks have gone back, the nights are drawing in and it will soon be time for fireworks, bonfires and maybe a glass or two of mulled wine.
Here are some of our lovely members, appropriately named for the title of this Photo Call. If you would like to find out more about them then click on their photo which will take you directly to their full profile.
***This Offer Has Now Finished***
Would you like to earn a year’s subscription to Muddy Matches?
Countryfile magazine is writing a piece about about being a single farmer and they are hoping to interview a single farmer who is actively looking for Miss Right on Muddy Matches.
We will be offering a week’s free subscription to all single farmers who offer to speak to them, and a year’s free subscription to the final single farmer who is selected to do so.
If you, or anyone you know, would be happy to speak to them or would like more information, please get in touch with Lucy ASAP at email@example.com. The journalist would need to interview you some time during the week commencing Monday 5th November.
***This Offer Has Now Finished***
In September we launched our photo competition, entitled What Makes You Muddy?, asking people to send in pictures of what being ‘muddy’ meant to them.
We received 40 photos, that spanned the full spectrum of what it is to be ‘muddy’, ranging from the literal (lots of mud covered people) to countryside scenes and outdoor pursuits. Animals also featured heavily in the photos; including sheep, dogs, horses and cattle.
We were so impressed by the collection that we awarded every person who entered a week’s free subscription to Muddy Matches and three lucky winners also took the top prizes.
Gold prize winner – Roger
Roger’s photo made us laugh out loud and was a unanimous winner, scooping him a year’s free subscription. We’re not sure that his Labrador puppy, Bracken was quite as impressed with his antics.
Silver prize winner – Joanna
We were slightly worried that Joanna had been mown down by her over-enthusiastic sheep in this photo, but we awarded her six month’s free subscription anyway for this amusing up-turned farmyard shot.
Bronze prize – Lydya
Lydya’s photo really caught our eye, as I must admit it’s not every day that you see a photo of a lady learning how to work the land using Oxen. Lydya who developed a soft spot for the “big hearted” animals has won a three month long subscription to Muddy Matches.
