Club Pogo has Launched its New Homepage!

See the video on Pogo’s Youtube page here:

In an effort to freshen up the Pogo site for our existing Club Pogo members and to make the site more appealing to potential subscribers, we’ve crafted a new design.

Here is a brief summary of the changes:

 

UP TOP…

Most Recently Played Games Bar. The first thing to note is the bar of most recently played games. Players can quickly add these games to their “My Favorites” list by simply clicking the little ‘heart’ icon in the upper left corner.

 

BELOW THE TOP…

Bigger Spotlight and News Section! Pogo News headlines now appear to the left of the expanded Spotlight section, which now allows you to preview all the spotlights by icon:

ON THE LEFT…

Member’s “My Stuff”.  On the left side of the screen players will find information that pertains to their account, including:

– Player’s Mini

– Token and Gem balances

– Messages

– Gifts and other information.

 

 

ON THE RIGHT…

Challenge Information! All of your Challenge and Badge information now appears on the right side of the screen. This includes:

– Daily Challenges

– Weekly Challenges

– Personal Challenges and more!

 

AND IN THE MIDDLE…

Navigation Tabs! You now have three tabs that give you the choice of how you’d like your Club Pogo homepage to show up. You are able to choose between “Favorites”, “Categories” and “Games A-Z”:

FAVORITES

If you rely on your favorites list as your main way to get to your games, then you may decide that Favorites is the tab for you. Click ‘Play’ to be taken directly to the game. One word of warning – due to the images associated with each game, if your list is super long, it may require a lot of scrolling.

CATEGORIES

If you enjoy looking at the entire menu of games divided by game type, then the Categories tab is for you. Other categories, not seen above, include: Word, Casino, Puzzle, Sports, Arcade, etc…

 

GAMES A-Z

And finally, there’s the A through Z list that allows you to sort alphabetically, by number of players, by category, whether or not it’s a Favorite, or even Club Pogo exclusivity!

 

These are the main changes to the new Club Pogo Homepage.

The new page couldn’t have happened without our Club Pogo customers! Learn about how customer feedback helped shape the new Club Pogo homepage in our Find Out about the New Club Pogo Homepage with Rochelle E interview!

Thanks for finding out about the new Club Pogo Homepage! Now, if you are a Club Pogo Member, you may go get your 20,000 tokens!

      from AnGeLlBabie68 and my biggest complaint is for us not so savy on posting y not make it easy and at the top put to post your feedback click here doh cant find that button so here i am bahhhh

      • You hit the nail on the head on many of your propositions. There are a lot of us ‘old retired folks’ that play. PLZ make the type bigger. I love Work Search and would like to play the highest one, but I can’t see! You’re right about the Chess.. who really knows how to play it. You people are making millions and millions. Why not let us buy games and gems for some of these tokens. Like…maybe each time you go up a level in tokens…let us use our tokens for things from the mini mall or a game. I’m also disgusted with the ‘Friends List’. Why does everything have to be so secretive?? It’s ridiculous. I used to sit here and play all day long. Now, I only play a couple of hours a day. It’s getting mighty boring. :(

        BTW…I’ve been playing on POGO since 2001 and a member for 7 years and I pay for three accounts. Please do something to make it like it was in some places and better in others to keep me as a member.

        Thanks :)

    • HATE THE NEW FORMAT WHY ON GODS GREEN EARTH WOULD U CHANGE SOMETHING EASY TO GET AROUND ON AND MAKE IT DIFFICULT WHAT A BUNCH OF FOOLS

    • My sentiments exactly! I don’t like the ads and I don’t like the new home page!

    • i agree with you, i hate it,it looks like them free games pages from the other game sights.
      i might not renew my membership.

    • It’s awful bad mistake & haven’t seen anyone say they liked it. Hopefully they’ll listen to their customers & go back to what they had.

    • I do NOT like the new home page, the old one was easier for me to see. I am leagilly blind and I need the old setup back . PLEASE!!!!! Thank You.

  • I Really REALLY DO NOT like this new homepage at all, not even a little bit !!!!!!! Between this and the fact that for over 6 months I Couldn’t even get most of the games to play or earn most of my badges, I am very seriously considering Not renewing, which is something, after all these years, I never thought I would do.

  • I hate the new homepage! Please let us have an option for it to look normal again. PLEASE!!!!!

  • when do we all get new homepage mine has not changed yet

    • thats what i would like to know is when we are getting the new homepage some of the u.s side of pogo already has it. and that was i think it was monday that a few said that they already have it i would really like to have it we have never been told unless i missed it which is possible as to when we are going to get it. thanks so much pogo now lets put up the amazing homepage

  • why are the games no longer loading since you’ve upgarded pogo?

  • Why do my games not work right? There is always a poll about the weekly challenges,such as how long it took, which one we liked Well how about adding DID WE HAVE ANY TROUBLE WITH A GAME? I am having trouble with most everyone of my games Would be nice to be able to call and talk with a person regarding this problem as I so not seem to be able to make myself understood typing the problems out.

  • I hate the new page. I don’t see how it is in the least bit better for us, I agree with the previous post stating we should have the option for the new or the older page front. and where is live chat why is it hidden if it is there at all? I have an issue with all my gifts suddenly being gone and would like to know how to get them to show again.

  • I do not like the new home page. I have eye problems and now you have to slide back and forth to see whats on the page. I have to use the 800 x 600 screen and it does not work with the new page. And the page has gaps all over it, bad move on your part. I am suppose to renew in December but not as it is. Sorry Pogo you are messing up, Some things are not always as good as they look.

  • Yes I can’t load all the games , plus they are not playing like before. And what java is pogo running on cause something seems to be wrong or not running right.

  • My page does not look like your example. the challenges are on the left side and much further down. there is a lot of empty white space and is does not look very efficient.

  • I hate the new page. Please bring back the old one.

  • HATE IT!

  • i dont like the new homepage at all. why cant pogo ask us before changing things

  • I don’t like it either. The challenges are harder to find and there’s a lot of wasted space.

  • I really don’t care how the page looks…I would like to the games to load now and the chat does not work. If it wasn’t broke, why mess with it?

  • Not a fan of the new page…it’s way more confusing than the old one and harder to navigate! GO BACK is my vote!

  • do not like the new homepage one bit bring back the old home page

  • I really enjoy a fresh new look,every so often.Now we need a few new games.It would be nice to let members come up with badge ideas for games.If their Idea is picked,give up a few gems to the weekly winner.

  • I DO NOT LIKE IT PL PUT MY BACK TO THE OLD ONE

  • This is absolutely HORRIBLE !!! Why do we need to see the latest games played? And right at the top, no less. Then there is that UGLY HUGE Spotlight section !!! Why does that need to be so big? It means nothing to most of us. I am so tired of Pogo changing things, supposedly for the better. All it is arranging things differently. Rochelle supposedly discussed changes with members? I don’t think she every talked with anyone not connected with Pogo. SIGH!!!!

  • I do not know what you have done but I can not get any of the tables to open. why would you spoil such a good thing.
    this is really frustrating….go back to what you had

  • HATE IT!!!!!!!! Please put back the old one. I am sick and tired of this crap. My renewal comes up soon and I will be happy not to. You people don’t care what we want.

  • HATE IT HATE IT HATE IT Hate that i cant see my mini makes me not interested. loved seeing it when i got on, why didnt u test it out n ask us paying customers what we thought! it is just HORRIBLE bring bk the old one

  • As a member of the club POGO and one of the more than 1 1/2 million members I feel it was a mistake at this time to come out with this new page. One problem I have encountered is trying to get into some of the games it is harder to get connected and some games can’t connect to them all of these bugs should have been worked out ahead of time prior to bring it on line. I also feel if you felt this change was needed to bring in more advertising i think it was the wrong move. I know that the dews and the moneys spent by your members should be enough to keep you running and still have money left over and am wondering why the change. I have read most of the comments and feel you are going to loose quite a few members by making this move. No I dont feel moving back to the old page would be a good move either, by giving the members a good and clear reason and some assistance and help on learning how to use your new system might sooth some of the members. When a person gets up in years it is very difficult to make changes when they have been used to doing things one certain way. I know i an 76 years old and don’t care for changes. I dont much care for the change but you needd to working on getting all the BUGS worked out and pay attention to your paying members. Thank you for letting me have my say.

  • I have been in the business area for many many years and one thing has always worked. If something isn’t broke – don’t fix it. What ever possessed you to come up with this flashy “page” Very hard on the eyes. Your venue has been a boon for a lot of older and handicapped persons. It passes the time so well. BUT – now it is hard to see = hard to find what you want – please Pogo – leave well enough alone. The new page is a bust as far as most of us are concerned.

  • So the whole point of this remake is to put Clue episodes and World Winner front and center???? When we the players are paying for what??? What do your customers want??? TO PLAY THE GAMES!!!!! Duh. And you have buried them below the center and buried them further under “navigation tabs”? How brilliant!!!! EA obviously does not “cherish” Pogo players as they tout in the Rochelle E interview. What an INCREDIBLE load of crap was that interview! Oh yes, POGO NEWS is my highest interest. Barf me out, man. To paraphrase James Carville, “It’s the games, stupid!!!”

  • Alice
    HOW DO YOU FIND THE DAILYS AND PERSONALS . i AM SO CONFUSED. tHIS NEW STUFF DOES NOT MAKE IT EASY. iS THERE ANOTHER GAME PROGRAM i CAN GO TO TO PLAY.

  • Hate this new page!!!!! The page is so oversized that it doesn’t all fit, I need to scroll left to right or up and down to to find the new places for my games (guess I have to figure out how to resize this page to see if I can use it the way it is intended). I hate the last played games icons on the top of the page, Thsi new page is so cluttered with useless information that it is frustrating, I know what my favorites games are and what I played last. Too much information really can be a bad thing!!!!

  • This was a huge mistake. When I opened the page this morning I felt like I had landed on the free pogo page not club Pogo. Where was everything? It assulted my eyes with the brightness.
    It looks like Pogo is pushing the games we have to pay for the episodes. Take this “new” homepage OUT and give us what we like.

  • do’t like the new home page at all.

  • It was very interesting to play up until now that is up to date. And today, I was surprised by the appearance of the new page and I managed barely to understand what is mediated. The new side of POGO. I would prefer it to be very still old page because it is much more obvious, and easier to understand that for the game. Now the new side is all messed nekoko everything is mixed. POGO PLEASE COME BACK TO OLD SITE AND ADVANCE TO THANK YOU FOR IT.

  • You should have a survey so Pogo Members can rate these changes to the Pogo home page.

    “Do you like or not like these changes to the our Pogo Home Page? Mark “Yes”, or “No”.

    I believe you will find the answer is an overwhelming NO! Which is my answer. Totally. 100% hate it!

  • I’ve been a member now for five years and enjoyed pogo. Now I frusterated and getting ticked off. I HATE the new home page. Not only is it fragmented all over the place but when you click on weekly badges for tips you only get half of the statement good luck with that. What ever nimnod put this together should be shot. Why screw up a good thing. Extremely Cheesed

  • Do not like! Bad! Bad! Bad!

  • I do not like this new home page. You know the old saying “If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it.”
    The old home page was muuch easier to read and follow.

  • What amazes me about the change to pogo’s homepage is how without me speaking to another club pogo member on my personal feelings about the new homepage there seems to be a consensus in the comments…too confusing, too white, too busy, and too many ads that have displaced the paying members info, and last but not least the new homepage doesn’t look that much different from the free pogo’s homepage. These are my thoughts exactly! This last year pogo has gone downhill and that saddens me because I really do love pogo…but it’s almost as if it is being sabotaged by someone who doesn’t hope for its continued success, and is deliberately trying to destroy it. I hope that is not the case. Pogo get your act together. Please! Between Pogo, our browsers, Java and Flash updates you are all updating yourselves right out of compatibility. You can’t keep up with each others changes so how do you expect us too? I feel sorry for those that aren’t computer savvy. In order to keep playing the games I had to go to an older version of java, the latest version of flash player, an older version of my browser and shut off my updates. I hope for Pogo’s future.

  • There are pluses and minuses to this new home page. I deleted a lot of my favorite games because the page is just too busy now. In fact the home page is so busy I get off it as soon as possible. You may have had good reasons for the change but it is something designed for a web page fanatic maybe. Not designed for someone who just wants to enjoy the games.

  • I don’t like the new homepage – too busy – too awkward to use – even after watching the video – it wasn’t broken why did you try to fix it – this is a step backward – why can’t we choose to use the old page style – thumbs down on this

  • I rarely post comments, but this new home page that pogo has come up with is so bad that I had to say something. It is way too busy. The games at the top are supposed to be my “favorites” that I go to all the time, yet most of them are ones I haven’t gone to in months. There’s too much white space. This home page looks like something an amateur designed. It’s not professionally done and it looks way too much like the free version of pogo. If this home page that’s totally worthless is going to be the new “norm” for Pogo, I”ll have to think twice when my renewal comes up in a few months.

  • HATE IT!!! Horribly busy. Now I have to scroll to see everything that is My Stuff. Before it was right there on top with my beautiful mini. Now I get to see the head. Why does the favorites list have to be sooo large. I don’t need pictures to know my game. The other list was great. On the right side I could play my usual morning stuff-crossword, word search and mahjong without having to go back to the home page. Who cares what game was played last. Who cares what Pogos recommendations are for games to play? I’ll find them if I want to play them.
    This is just a jumbled up mess.

  • Don’t like it at all. Too jumbled. Not easy on the eye.

  • HATE THE NEW LAY OUT…but there isn’t much change I’ve liked since POGO sold out to EA

  • There are several things I don’t like about the new page, but the one that is the hardest to deal with is the snow white background!
    Good eye sight or bad the white is to glaring and at night it is all most impossible to see no mater what kind of back light you have in a room.
    I had thought this was addressed once before and that was when they put the cream back in the chat section as no one could see it for glare please do something to fix this.
    No eye Dr. would think this was a good idea just ask a few of them!

  • Wouldn’t POGOs time be better spent fixing the problems that exist with the games than to make such a drastic change to something that was fine. Do not like the new homepage at all.

  • New Home Page – I do not like anything about it.

  • I do not like this new page to hard to understand it please put it back the way it was it is realy not fair to change things esp. when you are a club member

  • do not like this home page give me back the old was nothing wrong with it

  • I just do not like it. Period. Too confusing try resolving our problems instead of changing the home page.

  • I can live with the new page but why do you have the games we just played on top. I know what I have played before. If this was off we could see our mini. Most of us have a good time making our mini and also buying items with gems and tokens. We want to see them when we go to the home page. You are trying to make us happy and make lots of money too but pogo player are not dumb. So stop pushing or you will lose many players.

  • I absolutely hate it! It seems to me instead of upgrading the homepage, you’ve gone and made it worse then the very first Pogo homepage. Please, either change it back, or make better improvements. No offence tot he designers but they could of really put more thought into it.
