Re:  Launching The New-Improved GNSO Web Site

Dear GNSO Council Members, Stakeholder Group Leaders and Constituency Leaders,

We are pleased to announce that the new-improved GNSO website is just about 
complete with a scheduled "go-live" date of 24 May 2012.  Given the large 
quantity of new content and new design elements in the new site, we wanted to 
provide you with an opportunity to use, review and just generally experiment 
with the site prior to its public launch.

We are hopeful you will find the new look, site architecture and content, to be 
a vast improvement from the current site, but this is just first phase.  We are 
planning to add additional functionality, better graphics and further 
improvements over time - including now being able to move forward with efforts 
to provide web presence functionality for all GNSO Stakeholder Groups and 

As with any new tool, there may be some growing pains, so we are VERY 
interested in getting your early and initial feedback. In particular we are 
interested to hear what you like and what you don't like about the new design 
and navigation.  We're also very concerned that the information provided in the 
site is accurate and complete.  You'll note some new "About" sections that 
address the structure and operations of each of your respective organizations 
or communities.  Please alert us if anything needs to be changed in those areas 
of the site - even if you just want to supply us with a new or updated photo.

As an alternative to a lightly attended webinar, we've prepared a short set of 
slides (attached) with a quick overview of the new site.  The presentation 
highlights some of the new features of the site and provides a quick 
explanation of the new structure and how content is organized.  It also 
contains information about the form and timing of any potential feedback you 
might have for us.  We are still open to holding a community webinar or 
individual community calls if you think that you or members of the community 
would benefit from such events.

We'd appreciate that you share ANY feedback about the site with us at 
newgnsosite@xxxxxxxxx<mailto:newgnsosite@xxxxxxxxx> by May 20.  That central 
email address will allow us to capture all your comments and the date will give 
us time to process any final fixes or modifications prior to the public launch 
on May 24.  We are currently targeting the precise switch-over to take place 
late in the day of May 23 UTC time (23:59) - hence the "date" of 24 May.

Best regards,

Rob Hoggarth & Berry Cobb
