I have two things to say,

First: A professional company website should never go public with all these errors the fellow geekzoners have found.
 
Second: Tony leave some errors for other people to find :P

11.2 You may use the Content of the Website only for the purposes of reading and shopping
at the Website, or placing an order and for no other purpose.

Oh now surely I can quote small parts in a 'fair use' context for reporting, or perhaps entering a competition like I am doing now?

What about Search Engines? Are they not allowed to index the content of your site?

  • Nobody is paying me :(
  • Yes I really want a Centro. A free one even.
  • I have mowed the lawns, walked the kid, emptied the pool and waterblasted it, dismantled/cleaned/remantled the BBQ, bought all new socks and discarded old ones with holes + much more :-)
  • I am not a moderator these days. Please research the term Emeritus :-)


Haha - sorry - my mistake. Perhaps you are not the only Village Idiot.

Pointless statement - the Act does not permit any contracting out of itself.



Except for business transactions...

Thanks for all your comments so far, we are working through your suggestions.

You still have until 10pm NZ Time to qualify for the Centro Draw.

There are 3 Centros up for grabs; one here, one on our blog/forum site and one on our facebook page.

The odds on facebook look pretty good right now! 1 in 11. vs 1 in 31 on our site and a little lower here on Geekzone.

Remember you can list the same error in these three places and get three chances.

Our Facebook page - http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/pages/Black-White/31358664214

Our Blog/Forum - http://www.bw.co.nz/blog


tonyhughes has got to have the best odds right now!



Cheers,

Something that I think no one seems to have picked up...

Black + White - official name
Black+White - at the bottom of pages
Black & White - title on pages

Then we also have B+W... but then it would be strange to type B + W...

When viewing a product's details (eg a page like this http://www.bw.co.nz/phone/detail/34), if you hover the mouse over the price(s), you get a tooltip inexplicably saying "Zoom". (This is particularly bad for blind users who's text to speech software might read that out).

On Internet Explorer 7 (possibly other versions too), the photo and price(s) don't show on this page: http://www.bw.co.nz/phone/detail/34 (works fine in Firefox though).

On this page: http://www.bw.co.nz/phone/detail/34, the line "Carl Zeiss optics" is pushed up against the left hand margin - the same margin where the dashes (-) are for the other items in the list. It should instead be moved a few spaces to the right, like how it's done on other pages (eg http://www.bw.co.nz/phone/detail/16).

On this page: http://www.bw.co.nz/phone/detail/80, the product detail list is down the bottom of the page, instead of to the right of the picture as is the case for every other product. The dashes for the items in this list are also formatted wrong (eg " -Blah" vs "- Blah"), except for the last item.

That's 29 cents less than anytime any net mins on most prepay plans

This line seems a bit hard to understand for normal english speakers? Maybe its an error, maybe someone already noticed it =)
