Popup before posting in Help during global issues

By: firoze | 06-12-2018 19:32

There has been a global impact on data services within the o2 network.

Despite a banner provided by giffgaff at the top of the Help page, over 80% (sometimes over 90%) of posts in the Help section referred to this outage.

My idea is that during these admittedly occasional but global outages that affect all members, there is a divert in place when the user clicks "Post" to inform them of the issue. If they still feel the need to post a question, they can.

I feel this would have had a huge impact on the sheer number of posts today.

Worth bearing in mind for the future.

I like this as it may not stop the posts but i could help slow them down and inform more

I think that could be a good way to keep people more up-to-date when there's something big happening.

Sounds good but I doubt people pay much attention to pop ups.

Great idea but let’s hope this doesn’t happen too often.
