Your Opinion Needed - Player Charts

We have got some useful member feedback suggesting that the names on golfer graphs are difficult to read. This is because the names have to be rotated to make them fit on the page in a legible manner (see the top image above).

Since we here at Golf Predictor value the opinions of our users, we set about investigating ways of improving this. We came up with flipping the axes (see second image above), so that the all labels are horizontal. Before replacing all such charts, we thought it prudent to solicit more feedback from our users. To that end, we have added a link to most such chart pages so that you can access/evaluate the horizontal version.

Your choices are threefold:
  1. Leave the charts as they were.
  2. Change to the new horizontal ones.
  3. Leave it as it is now on the evaluation pages, with an option to view either.
Do let us know what you think via comments to this post. We would appreciate any and all feedback. We will leave it open for a week or so, depending on the response. Thanks.

To kick things off, the source of the original feedback is very happy with the new horizontal charts!

The original charts look a little nicer, but it's much easier to read the newer charts.

Maybe the best solution then is option 3.

Thanks for your comment.

The vertical charts have a 3D effect, while the horizontal ones don't unfortunately.

We may look into making the chart orientation a preference you can set on your profile page.

We have now implemented the above. Check out our main blog post on it.
