  1. ad blocks your main headline

    Every time I view your homepage I can't see the top headline nor part of the second cause of your google ad. I'm UK based btw in case it's any different.

    I report via the ad that it blocks content but doesn't go away :)

  4. Please keep political views away from articles

    Hi,

    I am a fan of TechCrunch for latest tech related new articles. But recently, I am only seeing politically biased articles related to India by author Manish Singh. I am sure, we can find some tech related news from India rather then post biased political views from Manish Singh.
    Kindly look into this matter.

    Regards
    Tech Crunch Fan

  5. Wrong Crunchbase profile listed in article

    Good morning --

    RE: "Wasabi announces $30M Series B as cloud storage business continues to grow," 
    the article includes a link to the wrong Crunchbase profile --

    the piece links to:
    https://www.crunchbase.com/organization/wasabi-2

    (not the Wasabi about which the article is written)

    when in fact it should link to THIS one for the Wasabi referenced in the article:https://www.crunchbase.com/organization/wasabi-technologies-inc

    Could you please correct this? Thank you.

    EH

  6. GDPR complaint

    Hello,

    with the design of your website, especially with the cookie wall, you are not GDPR compliant and therefor you violate European data protection regulations. Forcing consent for cookies for access your site is illegal.

    You need to change that as soon as possible. I will check back in two weeks and send a complain to the GDPR authority if you will not comply.

    To read the regulation, see: https://edpb.europa.eu/sites/edpb/files/files/file1/edpbguidelines202005consenten.pdf

  7. Important Message About TechCrunch

    Hi, this is Lindani Dlamini

    I have visited your site earlier and it looks amazing. I’m not sure if you are open to a new feature that would help you get more customers, sales and conversions?

    I am currently running a Social Media Marketing Agency where I assist businesses to build their brand and conversions. Over 15, 000 other businesses are using this tool to scale their businesses rapidly.

    If you are interested, I can send you over the details and possibly a 14 days free trial here: lindanibhoboza@gmail.com

    Let me know if you have any questions.
    I have an…

  8. Get rid of the "scroll-changes-page" feature

    On every single website that this feature has been rolled out to, it's been an abject failure of UX. Users can no longer control navigation on this website and others, and sometimes they lose an article they've been reading for good b/c of some convoluted, arcane bug that even an experienced developer like me can't wrap his head around. Worst of all, the page-change erases comments in-progress. That might be why there's comparatively little engagement on TechCrunch compared to sites that don't use this navigational defect. Please get rid of it or create a version of it that doesn't have…

    Your unsubscribe link embedded in emails does not work. After clicking the button on the webpage, I'm stuck with "Please wait". For example, http://info.techcrunch.com/UnsubscribePage.html?mkt_unsubscribe=1

  10. Extra Crunch in Pocket app?

    I like to consume all my content in Pocket - is there a way to do so with the Premium Extra Crunch content? Is there a way to get an extra link that works for some time to import it there?

    Prosumers are probably typical users and a lot of them are using Pocket too.

  11. Enable deletion of (inactive) associated e-mail addresses with TechCrunch account

    It would be handy if there is an easy way to remove e-mail address(es) that are associated with your TechCrunch account but are about to be deactivated. I have added another active e-mail address but somehow are not able to delete the e-mail address with which I signed up in the first place. In general … there is also no seemingly easy way to delete your account to start over.

  13. Please don't wash-out the headline I am hovering over.

    When I'm on the home page and hover over an interesting-looking headline, the headline goes grey and the thumbnail is washed out. To me, this is the opposite of highlighting the article that currently has my interest. Please consider using a different mechanism to "highlight" the item I am hovering over.

  14. Getting directed through guce.advertising.com no matter what link I choose

    When trying to access your techcrunch.com at work, I get immediately directed to a link at guce.advertsing.com. That website is blocked and I cannot proceed to your website. Since this is a work (govt) internet, I have no control over this blocking. This keeps me from ever viewing your site.

  15. Diversity Report articles should not be paywalled behind ExtraCrunch

    I was disappointed to discover that the recent Pinterest diversity report article https://techcrunch.com/2020/01/16/pinterests-diversity-report-is-missing-some-key-data/ was locked behind an ExtraCrunch subscription. It goes without saying how important these reports are for holding tech companies accountable for meeting D&I goals, and as a PoC in tech I'm dismayed that I can't read about how Pinterest has met/not met their goals this year. I did a quick search on TechCrunch and I think this is the first time a Diversity Report has been paywalled, and I suggest that this NOT be a trend going forward, given the public benefit to all of reading key…

  16. sort

    I searched "e-learning startup" and found the results were not ordered and there is no way to order the results. The default should be reverse chronological. The effect now is listing companies in top 5 that got funding, e.g., Mindsy, that are now defunct.

    Also it takes a few extra steps to find where to provide feedback. This should at the very least always be available at the bottom of most pages.

  18. Increase contrast of the smalltext next to the title.

    The text next to a title in the list is small and light grey. It's hard to read (for no reason?).

  19. Link

    Hi! I'm using Link Results extension and found out that you have 1 invalid link in your page (TechCrunch). I was wondering if it can be replaced with a working link.
