layout"? I'm familiar with the terms "web 1.0" and "web 2.0" but not
what that might mean for your layout.
- The layout we're currently using does not follow the
"classic" newspaper-type layout that New York Times,
Washington Post, or the other older well known news
sites use. People are used to reading the news in the
"old fashion" way. I'm trying to figure out if we are
friendly enough for the older generation of news
readers to read.
Here some of my questions for everyone:
1. Is our site easy to navigate?
2. It it easy to figure out that we are actually
keeping a live political dossier on the individuals we
are currently profiling? (THANKS to Josh we are now
trying to figure out how to add legislations in one of
our tabs. However, we are not as knowledgeable as Josh
so this is going to be slow in the making. Kudos to
3. How do we make our site even more appealing?
Anyway, any suggestions and comments will be
appreciated. Thanks James:)

Do You Yahoo!?
Tired of spam? Yahoo! Mail has the best spam protection around
- Votersdomain.com looks quite nice, easy to find my way around. The
profiles on the members are also very good. The design makes me want
to stay on the site rather then leave the site, which is the case with
many large-content based web sites. Good job!
