Feedback Roulette presents a unique rating system that keeps users constantly providing and receiving feedback. Feedback is extremely important to the success of a website. User input can lead to much needed changes or the addition of products the user base wants. The problem is finding a way to gather honest feedback. Feedback Roulette works by providing users with a random website that they check out and review. Each website the user reviews earns them Feedback Points. These points are spent when the user requests feedback from the Feedback Roulette community. After reading the feedback on their own website, the user can then rate the feedback they received. The final step of the rating system helps keep users honest and up front. Feedback Roulette has designed a give and take system that works well to keep the flow of valuable feedback moving.Show more screenshots »
Feedback Roulette was introduced in 2011. The creators wanted to find a better way to help users obtain and give feedback. Many website owners struggle over the best way to convince users to give feedback. By making feedback mandatory to receive it, Feedback Roulette helps keep the cycle moving. The site is still in beta, but shows potential to help many site owners get some honest opinions about their virtual spaces.
Leaving feedback is not a new activity on the internet. In fact many sites rely on feedback to keep users informed when making a purchase. This works well but the problem is there are situations where feedback is needed, but not easy to get. Feedback Roulette encourages a constant exchange of feedback by rewarding users for leaving feedback with the opportunity to get some in return.
The Feedback Roulette website offers a very sleek, professional appearance that will encourage the participation of website owners of all kinds, from those that own casual websites to those that manage business sites. A new visitor is greeted by a diagram explaining the system in a concise manner, using blue people figures displaying the three steps for giving and getting feedback.
A new user can get started right away by using the form presented on the Feedback Roulette homepage. The form asks the user to enter the URL of their website (the one they would like reviewed) and a valid email address. A check box is automatically checked to sign the user up to the Feedback Roulette newsletter. This must be manually unchecked to opt out. After entering the information, the user can click the blue “Start Exchanging Feedback” button just below the form. The user is advised that a temporary password has been emailed to the address they provided. This must be accessed to log in and begin using Feedback Roulette.
One of the best things about Feedback Roulette is the price. The application is completely free to use. Users benefit by having more individuals available to provide feedback and submit sites to be reviewed, so the free account option really works. There is no premium paid membership option at this time. The site is still in beta so this could change in the future.
Anyone who has a website can benefit from using Feedback Roulette. The system makes it easy to give and get website feedback. By taking a little time to give feedback, user can automatically earn feedback for their website. It is a great way to learn a website’s strengths and weaknesses from an unbiased third party.
