DMG's new website is up, and it's lovely. (^_^)b But as always when big changes happen, little things go out of wack.
I mean for this thread to be a combination bug report/constructive criticism, so the website can get even better. (And I know a few things were already noted on twitter. See, we're lookin' out for you.
) Here's some things I found, to start with:
*The frontpage says "Next Video Conference Schedule is February 29, 2012." If I recall, the next streams are on Feb. 17 and Mar. 2, so is that a mistake, or does it refer to something different?
*If I click Login while the email and password fields are blank, it takes me to the dashboard of, I guess it's a blank slate user, with the ID of G0000001828.
*The DMG Agreement can't be printed or saved. It says the file is damaged and can't be repaired. Says the same thing before and after I resubmitted my information.
*The online version of the Localizing Guidelines is missing the sample reference images, and it says Updated 6/8/2011 at the top, when there's an update from 9/12/2011 at the bottom. Also, it'd be nice to get a downloadable .pdf version of that again.
*The new Find Someone or Group tab is an interesting idea, but it sorely needs work. It's just not practical to browse through four names at a time (seemingly at random), with no way to search for someone by name or job type, and no way to go back in case you overclicked. Also, almost everyone I saw there had the "New user / Default profile summary," so I really hope you publicize this new feature in particular in the next newsletter so people know to either change their info to something more useful, or opt out of it in their Account Settings.
And that's it from me! Has anyone else gotten to play with the new site yet?
