Re: New IARU website!

Sterling Mann

Nice! I helped! :D

It'll be awesome to see the same design throughout. The continuity will go a long way. I'm especially interested in how R2's site is updated, specifically regarding language support (seeing their current page has both spanish and english on the same page).

One thing I have noticed is that search engines haven't caught up to the changes (e.g. the first link on google "IARU Region 2" goes to, which no longer exists.) I imagine that's just going to be a matter of time for site maps and SEO to work itself out.

I'm also looking at the A/B between the two, one thing that stuck out is difficulty in finding the organization's officers, which I caught on the bottom of the about-us page. The previous site version had it and the 3 secretaries of each region on the Contact page ( I would be inclined to suggest adding a link to the About IARU Hover-menu to an IARU Officers page (which has a listing and short bio of the IARU personnel) like my MS Paint rendition below.

Just to close the loop on Sterling's observation about Iceland being shown as in both Region 1 and Region 2, the tiny graphic has been fixed.

Any other comments/suggestions/corrections for the new IARU website will be welcomed. The Region 1 site is also up and running now, with Regions 2 and 3 soon to follow.

Awesome website! This is more like it! Just need to get the IARU regions on the same page (especially R2).

I just noticed that Iceland appears to belong to both R1 and R2 in the hover over dialog.
