psb777 1 Posted November 11, 2014 Share Posted November 11, 2014 When I share a note or a notebook and I send the link to another and they click on the link there is an obtrusive (annoying and worrying) Evernote advert window overlayed on the shared note / notebook. I understand Evernote wish to expand the community but there are problems not so much with this method but with the presentation *and* the text. The clicker of the link is presented with two options. One is prominent. "JOIN EVERNOTE, SIGNUP" or "JOIN THIS NOTEBOOK" (or words to that effect) and the other is below, in less bold colours "continue without signing up" (or words to that effect). This inhibits people from continuing to the content I have posted in the note or notebook. It frightens them off! Please make the overlayed window less prominent. Please give equal weight to the "continue without joining / signing up / divulging id / providing health insurance data / selling oneself into slavery" option. Perhaps make the ad less obtrusive? Make it an UNDERlayed window? Make it bottom right, not top left. Make it smaller: How about "Like what you see? Click thru for more about Evernote" or "More about Evernote": that's all you would need. I think Evernote Inc does not realise the service sells itself. There is NO NEED for the annoying overlay which I think DISSUADES people from using Evernote. Me too, now. I have been a most enthusiastic (zero-revenue!) user I LIKE Evernote. And I pay nothing to use it. So thank you! But this and a few other annoyances make me wonder if there isn't something else :-( Link to comment
