  • Google-izing
    • Standout icon/box things
      • Super stand-out
      • Simple Tagline, icon or something for wiki and forum
    • Main page - link overload
      • Fundamentals - bury under send fundamentals
      • Pages as outline further down or baked
      • Entry points for brand new user are SEND Fundamentals and Getting SEND-ready
    • FAQ - first glimpse into page is crazy
      • maybe expand first sentence - say what TOC is, idea of search, etc.
      • reduce/remove all links in favor of template links
      • Basics - remove header
    • News not pretty or obvious - make it stand out as not the forum
      • To initiate, confusing what this is
        • needs better header to make it more clear what it is (specifically not the forum)
        • Example of nice version:
        • currently resource constrained
        • Next step #1: PhUSE core team item to evaluate news status quo vs future - get attendee list
        • Next step #2: header
        • Next step #3: email how to use reminder
    • ACTION: Troy to draft text for FAQ and Forum links
