WAISworld.org Design Update (Eugenio Battaglia, Italy, 10/03/14 1:26 am)

Oh, you are really putting me in a bind.  I have no idea which website design remodel to choose, but I strongly agree with you: Keep the WAIS globe logo!

JE comments: So the WAISworld globe logo has at least two fans.  Thank you, Eugenio!

Here, once again, is the link to the website survey:  Please take a moment to give us your thoughts:

  • WAISworld.org Design Survey: Vote Now on the Two Finalists! (Roman Zhovtulya, USA 10/05/14 11:47 PM)

    Thanks to all who took part in the survey.  We've registered 26 answers.  Not a lot, given our 256-strong membership, but we saw the trend nonetheless.

    The first place goes to our "Custom Design 1":


    A close second is the Stanford adaptive design:


    After a lot of deliberation and 10 versions later, we managed to combine the two approaches. Please let us know you preference in the new survey:


    Also, I'd like to address some points/requests that were asked in the survey:

     1) Search engine

    Despite what some of the respondents claimed, we do have a search engine on our homepage (waisworld.org), in the upper right, where one can search by keywords and/or authors. Granted, our search is not as fast or sophisticated as Google's.  We can improve it if it is important.  

     2)  Profile pages and bios of contributors

    The features some requested (ability to see profiles of other WAISers, their bios, etc) are there and fully functional. I refer to my post of over a year ago:


    The trouble is, very few people have updated their profile (entered bio, etc.), so that's why nothing is displayed for most contributors. 

    Again, thank you for your feedback. I look forward to a new, more modern and responsive web design for waisworld.org.

    JE comments:  A big thanks to IT Director Roman Zhovtulya and his team...and a bigger mea culpa for not entering my own profile into the system.  I must lead by example.

    • New WAIS Design Implemented. Final Suggestions? (Roman Zhovtulya, USA 12/11/14 1:55 PM)

      Dear WAIS Community:

      Thank you for your input on the new WAIS design a while back. After months of working on dozens of designs, new logos, watermark features, etc., we are ready to present the final design implementation.  Click here:


      The design follows the best principles of Responsive Web (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Responsive_web_design ), which means self-optimizes for the best viewing experience, depending on the type of the device (cell phone, tablet, laptop, desktop, etc), used to access it. 

      We would appreciate your feedback (just the design/look-and-feel, features--some links might not work yet) before we finally replace the old web design with the new one. 

      Please try viewing the link above specifically on mobile devices (phones, tablets, etc.), to fully appreciate the  power of responsive design.

      JE comments:  I'm very excited about the new WAISworld, which we hope to launch by the New Year.  A big thanks to WAIS IT Director Roman Zhovtulya and his international team of developers.  One of our goals was to make our website mobile-friendly, as it hasn't been easy with the old webpage to read WAIS content on a tiny screen.  I'm also looking forward to playing with the "sliding image" feature at the top of the new page, which will allow us to highlight some of the best WAIS photos.

      Give it a test-drive, and send me your thoughts.
