The site beta launch is at hand. Today I am finishing up the creation of the Beta membership group and will be moving all the volunteers into that group. Starting tomorrow morning all of them will see a link to the beta at the top of the home page when they log into the site.
Here’s a screenshot of the new homepage:
For the most part the beta is self-contained; that is, you can view the site entirely within the beta, including using your mobile device. At this point the exceptions are the new member profile pages and the archives.
The framework for the micros is in place:
One of the primary reasons I am opening the beta is to get input from our new volunteer moderators on the design and to get help setting up our new moderation system. At the same time I’m looking for additional input and feedback on the updated mobile design.
In conjunction with opening the beta I will begin work on the new archive by converting our older blogs to the new setup. This means some of this content will not be available on the live site until the redesign is finished. Sorry for the inconvenience.
If you haven’t already and would like to volunteer to help out as a moderator or help out with other input on the beta follow the links.
