Thanks for the feedback

Thanks to our registered users that are giving us valuable feedback. We have already incorporated a lot of the suggestions, mostly usability stuff, and the site has shown improvements from it.

We appreciate the positive comments:

” This is amazing, I think all these years I was looking for this, this is great.”
“Job well done. I like the website and think it will very useful for the community.”

Now for the negatives. The java applet we use for the company graph is not well behaved. If there are other applets running sometimes there is a problem freezing the browser or the entire system. We are working on this, and are looking into a flash graphing module to solve this issue. Sorry for the inconvenience, we are working on fixing the problem.

Please keep the feedback coming. We have some great features planned for the next release and are continuing to make a useful and engaging service.

It’s Official

Since we actually launched to the general public only recently, I am pleased to say we are on our way. Thanks to all the new users that registered. This week Genotrope submitted resumes to various start-ups and will be following up with the hiring companies on behalf of the candidates.

Our goal is to be useful and engaging for our users. If you find a new position through Genotrope, that will be great too.

Let us know if you are having any problems or have some suggestions on features or improvements.

One thing we are considering is removing the defunct and public companies from the Find Company results. Although you can sort the list by clicking “Status” column title to group the early stage companies together, it may not be useful to see public companies on the list since you will mostly be looking for early stage companies. Let us know what you think.

Also, don’t forget to use the help windows by clicking on the question mark icon in the block headers.

thanks again ts add to the database when you can!
