    the new site looks good but a few people have commented on how they dont like the new layout for viewing newly listed swaps, i think the old site for viewing swapz was much better were you could just go on and flick threw all the newly listed swapz and just see if anything interests you, would be great to see that option back

    all the best

  2. luke webster says:

    The new layout is horrendous. Can’t search all newly listed swaps and its hard to navigate the site. Why mess with something that wasn’t broke. Previous site was miles better.

    i have just logged on to the new swapz site what a shock i must say at the moment i am not impressed the old site format was easier to understand and simple to use god nose what is going to happen put it back as it was if it aint broken dont fix it

  4. T.lake says:

    This new site layout is a PITA…i can normally just log in and search for what i want to look for in particular

    ive tried listing my car on swapz within the last 10 mins and its failed miserabley as i have listed on here before and it was no problem

    Bad idea to update,dont think i will be using the site as of now as much as i did
    rant over

  7. phil watkins says:

    Not very impressed buttons don’t work eg bump,listing items also cant find my friends and dont agree you got to do a swap first thinking of closing my account!!!!!!!!!! It wasnt broke all you had to do is improve the excisting site.
    Not happy

  8. Matthew Hutton says:

    Cant even list an new item upgraded to premuim member and the bump part aint working

    PUT IT BACK TO THE OLD FORMAT WAS SO MUCH BETTER

  9. Nick says:

    This site is rubbish,
    i’m trying to look at pics of cars and it won’t let you see all of them,
    only the ones that it shows at the time.
    Sort it out Swapz or this will be another long time swapper leaving this site.
    Also at the bottom here when writing this inotice next to the “submit comment” it says CHANCEL,
    Is it just me or is it ment to say cancel,
    the way this is going there is no hope for this site anymore.
    Lets have a look at pre-loved,thats a good site.

    i quite like the new lay out … the only thing i can think of to improve the site is when new swaps have been listed , we should have them categorized accordingly. so when we log on we only get the category we desire. all done by user prefrence in settings :) just a thought :)

  11. ant says:

    How r u ment log owt this think its doin my head in n the old was well better 2 use this is shit nw get a grip swapz n get the old bk

  12. alison says:

    THE NEW FORMAT IS RUBBISH. EVEN THOUGH MOST OF THE SWAPS ARE CARS IM ONE THAT DOESNT FALL IN THE CAR SWAP CATEGORY. CANT FIND FRIENDS EASILY. BUMPS DONT ALWAYS WORK. FINDING LATEST ENTRIES IS CRAP. IT WAS GOOD TO SEE GUESTS BUT CANT NOW AND AS FOR PUTTING THINGS ON TO SWAP WELL NO COMMENT.

    BEING A PREMIUM MEMBER WELL I WOULDNT BOTHER.

    UNLESS THINGS ARE RESOLVED IT SEEMS A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE GOING TO LEAVE INCLUDING ME.

    IN SHORT THE SITE IS CRAP

  13. Briang2 says:

    I’m all up with modernisation but I don’t think this is an improvement can’t add new pictures to My listings it was much simpler before grrrrrr

  14. peter rodger says:

    NOTHING WORKS SWAPZ CARNT EVEN CLOSE MY ACOUNT.? IT A CRAP SITE NOW

  15. Robb says:

    im sure quite a lot of you cannot remember the transition from Swapz 2 to Swapz 3, it took a bit of time to sort it out but they smoothed out all the problems, half of you lot moaning probably joined when Swapz 3 was fully up and running with no problems, just give the guys some time and stop bitching and try reporting any problems you find so we can all make this a good site and start being a community again instead of a bunch of moaning buggers, try contributing rather than hindering.
    RANT OVER
    Thank you for reading.

    Sorry but this is shocking. You will loose members with the new layout

    Please return to how it was before.

    Others must agree with me

  17. jeff50 says:

    robb most of us remember it well ie the change over from swapz 2 to 3 and before that also. how you can say it was all sorted is beyond me?. swaps3 was never completed. to name a few we lost forums never for it to come back?. we lost posting pics in chats never for it to come back?.now we have also lost chats etc. maybe come back maybe wont?. how on earth is that better?. i myself being a old member and done many a swap carnt see it?.perhaps you
    dont remember the site the way it was?.
    i love this site and its done me proud but i carnt understand why you would say such a thing?. maybe your a member who didnt use the site fully?. ie forums now gone. chats no longer here to say a few. now you tell me how that makes for a better community. i fail to see it?..think most old swappers would agree truth be known..you tried searching for a username yet?.
    now dont get me wrong im for the site in any context but no way can you say its better?. still good granted and it still works for most but no way on gods green earth at this stage would i say better?.yes we will get there the question is when. no good after we lose all the best swappers?.just my thoughts on it robb.

    give it a chance you ain’t paying a lot of money for this site so stop bitching like old women!!!

  19. harry says:

    i love your sight its better than ebay but ebay is good to

  20. Dave says:

    Total rubbish, cant post anything now, old site was 100% better, seems you broke something that was working fine maybe a little slow but ya got there in the end..

  21. Ian says:

    New site that doesnt work. No newly listed items search. But, it still has the same MESSERS and ignorant gits. Why cant you fix the messages that they have to replied to before they can be deleted. If this was done to the first message, all messages will be answered. Make it so that when they log in, it automatically goes to the new message and they have to reply to carry on searching or anything else

  22. Ian says:

    Why cant the the listings with ‘see main ad’ be deleted as soon as they are posted. The moderators are not doing their jobs in deleting them. I see loads of them where the description is ‘see main ad’. Waste of time looking but you dont know until you look at the listing. the members who put this know they are listing the item more than once.

  23. keffy says:

    every time i try to respond to a message the send button disappears and have to do message from other swappers profile, also the swearch doesnt work is it just me or the site frustarted and may give up.and by the way its cancel not chancel as at bottom next to submit comment.

  24. Andy says:
