Welcome to the new look Dumaguete Info!!
Over the past 12 years, Dumagueteinfo.com has been the premier website for visitors, local residents and relocated expats to share their experiences and provide information to each other. Recently, we made the decision that to continue to provide top level service to our members, we needed to make some changes to make the site more visually attractive and user friendly. Over the past few months, our web-development staff has been hard at work trying to achieve these goals, while maintaining the parts of DumagueteInfo that are tried, true and popular.
Here’s a brief overview of the changes
We have broken down the site in numerous specific and well-defined sections as follows
On the review page, you will find categories for different types of businesses including hotel, restaurants, bars and nightlife, dive shops, real estate, construction and different medical services professional services. We invite business owners to claim the listings of we already have them covered and they are free to edit their own descriptions. If we do not have your business listed yet, then feel free to start one. From there, we hope that when any of the Dumagueteinfo members patronize these establishments, they will take the time to write a review of their experience to help other consumers as well as to provide feedback to the owners that will help them provide the best service possible. We do however reserve the right to delete any reviews which we feel cross the line and appear malicious.
Our classified section has been completely removed from the forum section, and now has clear sub-catagories, Real Estate Sales, Real estate Rentals, Vehicles and misc goods and services. Posting and editing existing ads in any of these categories will now be simple and easy. After a 60 day trial period during which we will refine or listing procedures, posting up to 3 ads per member will be free, however after the test period, we will then be providing our members with classified listing packages with minimal charges.
Attractions will encompass everything that there is to do and see in around the Dumaguete City area, whether you are a tourist or a resident. This section as well will be a review based system, where we will try to give a brief intro with all relevant info, then will depend upon our members to write their own reviews based on their personal experiences.
In our news section, we will be providing relevant news from Dumaguete City, surrounding Negros Oriental, and nationally.
In our blog section, we will concentrate on providing our members with a platform to share their own personal experiences living in the Dumaguete City area, which we feel also provides a more colorful explanation of the situation “on the ground”. If you have your own blog now, and would like to increase your readership, we are comfortable with you submitting articles with links back to your own site.
The forum has been the meat and potatoes of our site and we intend to keep it that way. The Dumaguete Info forum will remain almost unchanged beyond removing some duplicate categories, so if you are comfortable with do not get stressed out that we are messing with a good thing.
Well, there you go. Hope this overview helps you navigate our revamped site with ease, and we certainly will be open to any feedback to improve the site to meet our valued member’s needs
