[802SEC] RE: Poke!



Title: Message

Bob,    That works for me, but I don’t think we should necessarily be designing all our web information to accommodate the most “na´ve” visitor.  If the guy can’t even figure out where the meeting info is posted, how much help is he going to be in creating new standards ???    OK, OK, an elitist remark …. 

 

Let’s continue on with trying to be User-Friendly.    J  

 

Thanx,  Buzz

Perhaps there should always be a link to "Meeting Calendar" from the www.ieee802.org/meeting/index.html page?  This would have the one page list of dates and places of future meetings.

Geoff,  Good concept, usually do-able, but occasionally we have a problem like now, which is actually due to a whole series of problems we had with San Francisco that caused a lot of the things that are normally done before the start of the meeting to not be done (like the meeting announcement package). 

Partial is OK for me as long as it is correct; if it's dead wrong or misleading then it's a mistake to put it up. 

We DO have the dates and locations for the next four plenaries posted for all to see


Not in any place that the naive could find them.
We should, at least, move the future meetings page to the front of the package as soon as a meeting is over. There is no value to leaving the last meeting page under a URL that says next Plenary.

Geoff


so I don't think we're at risk of folks thinking we're shutting down.

Buzz-

We have been here before!
I do not think it is OK for us to wait to post next meeting information
until random debugging gets completed.

I would much rather that an incomplete notice be posted that says  when and
where it is and says that reservations and/or registration is not yet
available.

I want to be able to point people to a site that has the next meeting info
on it AT ANY TIME.

That means that the next meeting notice (at least to the extent of the
information distributed at the Plenary) be put up on the website by Monday
of the week following the Plenary.

I believe that the world is entitle to at least the same next meeting info
as was distributed at the meeting.

Is there a problem with my concept?

Geoff
