22 October 2001 saw Newsround's website get a complete overhaul.
Loads of new sections, way more stories and a daily comments page :)
Are you happy with the site, what would you do to improve it?
On the other hand, what would you dump, what parts of the site bore you and you never go near?
Let us know all your ideas for jazzing up your fave kids news website.
You can also fill in our online survey about the site by clicking here
Unfortunately this topic is now closed but there are Comments pages on other subjects on the main Chat index.
I think that the Newsround site is the only one that combines the best games, news quizzes and so much more. It is by far the best site on the web.

I think you should be allowed to play music on here with the top 40 charts. And you should have more pictures of stuff!
Adam, 12, Harlow
Movies, CDs reviews and news on upcoming things. And more questions and answers with Celebrities!
Hollie, 13, Aberdeen
I think you should have a service where you send out an e-mail when you update a particular area (like the Harry Potter area) so that fans don't miss any news about their fave subjects!!!
Natalie, 14, Leicestershire
Your website doesn't need improving. no matter what you do to it, it will always be the best site on the net :)
Shelly, 13, London
How come you never talk about us in Northern Ireland? I thought we were part of the UK too!
Emma, 7, Belfast
I'd luv to know more about the team. Also, there needs to be more updates on LOTR stuff.
Olivia, 15, Manchester
The website could be improved by having posters of movies or popstars on the site that could be printed off.
Roberto, 15, Edmonton
Just want to say THANKS for such a brilliant site! I have made sooooooo many GOOD friends here through LotR and HP. THANK YOU!
Jenny, 15, Scotland
Have a page where we can submit problems and things, and have more Lord of the Rings news! Also how about advice on jobs for when we're older!
I think it's great already, but it would be good if there was more stuff about LOTR, as much about that as there is about HP. And I also think we should be able to send in pictures on the message boards.
Josh, 12, Leiston
A board for people who DON'T like Harry Potter. Since Harry Potter, everyone's been going mad, including Newsround. Ever thought about the people who don't like it? And have a careers board, where people can tell other people about the sort of career they're thinking of taking up.
We were supposed to find news stories on the internet at school, and I went straight on to Newsround. Now my teacher thinks it's a great site for news stories!!!
Garima, 10, Leicester
I think a problem page would be good where other children around the same age could help them out. We could all be little agony aunts and uncles.
Lynsey, 15, Scotland
I think live web chats with sports/music stars would be good. And you should feature more of an assortment. Like in sports you should have more about F1, tennis and rugby. Don't just feature the best like Man United and Arsenal and Michael Schumacher. Feature things about division one teams and other drivers like Kimi Raikkonen and smaller teams.
Sarah, 14, Aldershot
I'd really like a section where we can put our fan art on!
Amy, 15, Surrey
This website is my fave website and there is nothing you need to do to make it better!!! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!!
Melanie, 13, Dumfries
I have only just seen the site a week ago and I think it's brill!! Although, I do understand if you have reasons for this but I think it would be better if you explained the news more. I also think you should do more quizzes for people who enjoy school like art and English. Stuff like that as well as game type ones. I appreciate your time in listening to my idea and a thumbs up from me!!!
Angharad, 11, Guildford
I think that your site is very well laid out but the only thing that I would put on it is a bit for the older kids, maybe a page all about being a journalist for their career.
Charlotte, 12, Worthing
More movie and music updates. Also, it would be good if the news pages would have a bit more info.
Sarah, 13, Ireland
Please include more news from Scotland because I'd like to know what's going on around me.
Kelly, 14, Edinburgh
I think the website should have more games, votes and more new reports. I also think there should be more about childrens' news.
Laura, 10, Nuneaton
We need a totally animal rights board and a sound off type chat room, moderated of course! And more animal stuff! And DO NOT DUMP THE ANIMAL BOARD! PLEASE!
Steph, 13, Liverpool
It would be nice if the website had some official clubs and more competitions and more stories about Mary-Kate and Ashley because I hardly hear about them. More news and more competitions to meet celebs or popstars and more games.
Ramandeep, 10, Derby
I think your message boards are great and I go on them everyday, but I think you could get some more, maybe one for vegetarians!
Sibyl, 11, Stockport
More Harry Potter stuff please!
Kristin, 10, London
I think you could make a part where you can be a member and you could chat and share views with other members about the top stories.
Phoebe, 12, Bucks
I think that there should be more competitions for people to enter. I also think that there should be more stuff in the music and animals sections.
Karen, 14, London
It would be nice if it has a page for girls with problems, games and lots more competition.
Hayley, 13, Plymouth
You make me sick is a horrid game. Especially at the end!
Ben, 10, Leigh-on-Sea
Newsround website is wicked! I think that there should be more on different types of music and it should be more organised!
Abigail, 11, Peterborough
I don't think the Newsround site could be
made better. It's great just as it is.
Amy, 9, London
I've never come on the website before and I think it's brilliant and really colourful. It will definitely make more people watch the show. I think the website could improve by being able to tell you why someone should be a Press Packer.
Sian, 11, Sale
Put some new games on and make a new section with stuff like animal rights, human rights and stuff like that! It would help us understand others' hardship.
Laura, 13, Southampton
More info pages!
Ewan, 13, Scotland
I think your website is perfect, I don't think you need to change anything.
Katie, 9, Worthing
It's a brilliant site! Please don't dump anything but why don't you put up some downloadable wallpapers and screensavers? Or put up some more games!
Emily, 10, Wickford
Dump the sports page.
Michael, 12, Hartlepool
I would put an area on the message boards where e-budz could chat privately, and exchange email addresses.
Lucy, 12, Markfield
I totally agree with Anton!! We want more news!!!!! And music to the site would make it even better!!!
Sara, 12, Barking
Use correct spellings, less exclamation marks, be less patronising.
I think you should make it more interactive and maybe have live chats, games where you can play other newsround fans, moderatered chat rooms. Penpals, e-pals, stuff that will make us happy!
Charlietta, 12, Cheshire
Put more games on the site!!!
Ellie, 13, London
It would be great to have some downloads from screensavers to desktop wallpapers!
Luke, 14, Birmingham
Newsround's website is great as it is, so please don't dump anything! It would be nice if there was more things about the presenters and also when we are sending our comments, it would be cool if we got to chat with the other people who send comments!
Amber, 13, London
Bring back the football game you had during the World Cup.
I think that there should be more Harry Potter stuff on the site! I am always on the site trying to find ways to be less impatient whilst waiting for the next book and film! There is just not enough of Harry around!!
Kat, 13, Cumbria
I think there should be quicker updates! Expand the site (I know people wouldn't agree with me) but more news is more fun I say! And competitions! Exciting ones! Add music to the site would be a good thing also! Basically just expand the site!!!
Anton, 14, London
I think the site is wicked, don't drop anything. Maybe add a few cool things. But news around the clock and fun things are just great. We don't need more on the site. Newsround is one of my favourite sites.
Claire, 10, Merton Park
I think you should put a religion message board! That way people can learn about all sorts of religions! I also think there should be a peace and love message board so people that think they are the only person in the world that wants peace, love and no war will not feel alone anymore. And a message board that you can get advise for problems about growing up or bullying so you can tell someone about what you're going through, not feel alone and get help from somebody that cannot tell because they do not know who you are and you do not know who they are!
I never go on the Sci/Tech section, as I find that boring, but other than that, your site rocks!
Ceri, 14, Monmouth
The Newsround website is just great! I love how you update it every day. I especially like the votes section. I think there should be a few more games to play though! Besides all that, it's great!
Dalia, 10, Leeds
More stories about good music bands such as Feeder! Get rid of the Buffy and Animal boards. Also, get a fashion board!
Rachael, 13, Scotland
Um..it's great but I think that the main problem is there are not enough Press Pack comps as they are really good. It's 100% great but could 101%!
Lucy, 12, Northants
We think that the website should have more things for teenagers. It should have more features about music instead of everything about Harry Potter and LOTR and we want some new games!
Jade & Dan, 13 & 11, Leeds
I think Newsround is great! It is the best site I know.
Vishali, 8, Leicester
I would improve it by putting more voting and games on here. Plus a few more competitions. I would also do a chatroom, but guarded with moderators!
Lydia, 12, Northants
I don't think I could improve your site because it's the best already.
Charlotte, 13, Cumbria
It would be nice if Mel and Max were longer and appeared more often. There should also be a mini site for Newsround Lite.
Hannah, 12, Milton Keynes
I would like to see more stories about girls' pro football as I play for a club. I would have said a Buffy board, but you guys just gave us one. Thank you Newsround. Let's have some wallpapers of the presenters too.
