Welcome to our new site. We are proud to launch it amid February’s sleet and snow and hope you like it as much as we do.
At the moment, you can only see a very stripped down ‘beta’ version of the site. This is because we will introduce all the functionality gently in order to let different people get up to speed without panicking anyone.
Here is how we plan to roll it out:
- Soft launch: read only beta: no-one invited in. All login/register/add options point to a holding page while we tinker live, move URLs, DNSs and other technical things with three letter acronyms, and find things we couldn’t foresee.
- People are welcome to come and read and get in contact using the contact form, help us spot bugs!
- Soft launch: invite only beta: only some people invited in. All login/register/add options still point to a holding page
- Ed will send invites to initiative profile admins/editors and project profile admins/editors to come in and tinker with the profile pages while it’s calm and we can concentrate on a limited number of users.
- Full launch: all welcomed with open arms, login/register/add options open and functioning
- Ed will send invites to all users registered on system.
Beyond these activities, we will:
- Open up the initiative directory so that mullers can add themselves (March)
- Open up the projects directory for new projects (March)
- Start trialling the new ‘Community Microsites’ for initiatives who need some website support (March/April)
