Weather Underground Needs Your Help Testing New Products!!!

By: Shaun Tanner , 8:48 PM GMT on September 06, 2013

To become a Weather Underground product tester, please take this very quick survey!

Here at Weather Underground, we are constantly trying to improve our products. As part of this process, we will need feedback from some of our users before the products are released to everybody. Thus, you are a very important part to our product creation!

Weather Underground is seeking users interested in shaping the future of products. Participants will be contacted via email to schedule a quick video chat about current and potential new products. We need participants from all locations and users of any and all sections of the site. We won't be able to get to everyone immediately but are always developing prototypes for new features. We'll reach out as soon as we have something for you! All you have to do is complete this survey and we will contact you when we need your help!

Just complete this survey

I think the number one thing is to listen to what people have to say and the most popular items be priority and least popular items put on the back burner. For example personal weather stations are what people love about Wunderground. Using the feedback and comments you've gotten on the feedback forum build on what people want.

Another thing that would be nice is a customisable display where users can choose how their forecast and history pages are laid out. Or have it begin as a blank template and users drag and drop the stuff they personally find of value. I mean to some it's nice providing as much info as possible but for others simple does it. The forecast page is nice because you can minimise the different boxes. This is a plus. But I believe users would like a bit more control over some things.

I think what's been done is great but listen to people always approach improvements with an open mind and be creative.

The iwund site is fantastic for mobile devices. Please don't mess it up.

Jeff was SO on when Sandy hit, and before! I sail a lot, and that app and that website, customized for mobiles, is still the best. New owners--please don't "fix" what's not broken.

Using MacBook Pro, OSX 10.7.5, Safari

Trying your Trip Planner for the first time and can't get past the location, dates, and what to explore. Here is the screen that is returned. ?error=NOTFOUND

Otherwise the sight is great!

Hooked up with WU when I put up a PWS. I like most of the changes and the ones I'm not liking, I don't use. The Alert banner was great and hope it becomes a fixture.
Also like the blog and photo sections - keep up the good work.

WU is a fantastic weather site..
I enjoy news,video,and blogs..
My personal WU weather is fairly spot on..
I suppose if I had any gripe it would be that moderators in the blogs are erratic in their enforcement of blog rules..
Other that that I'm very happy to be a member here..
Keep up the good work.. :)

severe weather tab, community tab and what's in those tabs suits me fine. don't care to chat or give my email address, enough tracking and marketing with that already. aside from that, glad wunderground is here, an integral part of my day

Quoting 7. magian:
Great work on the site. I like the new changes.

Oh, and thank you for being a responsible science-based organization by acknowledging that climate change is real and not cowering to the ignorance of certain users who would have you do otherwise.

Oh Please pull your head out of your bum and have a good hard look, Climate change and science. no
what i see is perceived human induced climate change and lots of money thrown around to various groups to reinforce the misinformation, there is so much money buying peoples voices,
science has been gagged. such a shame.

now climate change is real (not human induced)
Due to the tilt of the earth we get our seasons this is climate change.
that big bright yellow thing in the sky
may have a lot to do with changes.
solar radiation,solar winds
the sunspots (you could fit the earth through some of the sunspots)
they are a tad large.
now the distance between the earth and the sun change due to the orbits
the closer the sun the more intense the radiation from the sun, the further it is away then the level of radiation is reduced

the earth, the sun and most planets are affected by each other, this induces changes in orbits
like little wobbles in the orbits
which can affect the amount of radiation and if the earth wobbles slightly then seasons could last longer (hotter summers in the northern hemisphere / colder winters in the southern hemisphere) or the other way.
2019 looks like the start of a cold cycle in both hemisphere's

human induced global climate change peddlers
have closed minds (a heard mentality) safety in numbers etc...

please start thinking, you won't regret it..might even enjoy it.....
much better then ingesting the rubbish that is pushed down your throat by the media, and then having to regurgitate
it back up word for word..

check out
it has very good information on the subjects.

i have followed the sunspot cycles since i was around ten years old (amateur radio got me into this) (wow forty years ago, gee time flies) and noticed the cycles matched very well with the flooding in south east Queensland since the 1800's (don't have much info prior to that for the flooding)

i even sold our house and moved to a property 300 meters higher, a year before the house suffered flooding three times in the last two years
amateur science helps

i live on 50 hectares of bush land
i can see the changes in the trees, plants and animals
about 5 months before the flooding all the white and pink gums dropped their bark

looks like trees are smarter then people, they knew what was happening way before humans.
i have seen this before in 1996 and in 1973/4
so it just confirmed my predictions

Please don't take offence at my comments
but i get sick of hearing the same worn out regurgitated vomit
about climate change......

I really liked the "old" format before it was "improved." I mostly use the animated radar map for my area and it's too bad that "animate" is not an option that can be saved as an option, too.

I know it's nice to monetize things, but it seems to me as if the broadcast and cable networks are trying to take over the internet and have ads everywhere that are really annoying and visually distracting (I'm a "visual" person, so blinking or wiggling ads are REALLY annoying and encourage me to NOT stay on a page at all!)

Some Mainscream Media websites actually don't understand "internet time" and think that most of us will stick around for 30-120 seconds to watch a video BEFORE we get to what we came for. Fortunately, many sites let us skip those ads (I wonder if they keep stats on how long viewers tolerate them!) but the ones that force you to watch ... well, I've got a mute button on my mouse and I can easily go read email or write my autobiography while the long ads play.

But I LOVE the weather data...

I personally don't care about all the new junk thats been added recently. I use the PWS info, the forecast and especially the radar with all its current capabilities. Never use anything else. I don't have sound on my PC or I would be glad to do a video chat to elaborate.

your predictions used to be pretty solid but since nbc bought you they have been so so. please go back to the previous way of interpreting the data.
Also, since you've been bought you seem to buying the line of climate change. please just stick to the weather and leave the politics to the idiots at msnbc!
