Well, their old look sucked as well so I guess it's a draw. I just visited the site for the first time in weeks and it looks like Ashish went out and bought him a template for 19.99 or something.

Looks very generic and Ashish is following Widro off the cliff by placing the wrestling section, what 90 percent of his audience is there for, at the bottom of the site.

Smart thing would have been to ditch the "portal" effort that was old hat in '95 and go back to concentrating on being a wrestling site. Bring in some actual writers versus the horrible crew they have now.

Also, I assume, in an effort to keep up with Widro's failures, Ashish threw up his new template before the site was finished. So now when you click on "politics" the page is filled with video game and music reviews. How minor leagues!!

Then when you go to log into the forum it repeatedly tells you that you didn't fill in all the required information. Um, there are only two slots; one for username and the other for password.

Horrible.

I'm trying to figure out exactly which site is more unprofessional and poorly ran, Inside Pulse or 411. From what I hear they are both doing terrible in their hit counts. 411 has dropped off the map completely and IP/Widro is startled at the amount of audience he lost with the move.

Very disappointing efforts by these guys. To bad they turned their backs on their core audience trying the stupid portal move.

They're paying for it now.

Yeah IP is doing so bad that they are attracting well known people from the Apprentice and Survivor winners to write for them.

Reality show rejects? They are forgotten a week after they leave the show.

Nice try though. I'm sure they will be sticking around once they figure out how much they will make per article.

Nothing.

Sorry but color me not impressed. They pull an Usher or Lucas interview out of their ass and we can talk.

Reality show has beens trying to hang on to their fifteen minutes does nothing for me.

If they're bothering with a new site design, and Scott Keith left the place months ago ... then why did they leave the "Rants" section (which hasn't been updated since July) intact?!?

You guys seem pretty convinced that Lafayette is a former 411/Inside Pulse writer.

Isn't it possible he's just a guy that thinks the new designs suck?

Face value, I know. It's probably a troll. Maybe not though, huh?

411's new design is naff, they should've stuck with the old one.

IP's design is amazing - it's just a shame that the wrestling content isn't updated often enough for my liking.
