It's James, your community host for the site. I have some exciting news!
We (me, our design team, IT guys, volunteer site moderators and leadership team and, of course, Cara - aka Cara99) have been working for the last 17 months on some awesome new changes. It has definitely been a labor of love.
The site will have a new look (for example, we are swapping out the video for a scrolling masthead letting you know of things happening around the site)
Some of the forums will turn into groups, which will allow you to join the groups you most frequent, but also allow us to make them easier to read, easier to use and a lot prettier. Slowly but surely, we will also make all of the Get Local pages into groups.
The biggest change is that starting Friday, the site will be mobile compatible. The new site design is responsive to your phone, making it easy to respond to posts on the go. We especially wanted to help those families in the NICU to be able to quickly and easily get the information and support they need even at the bedside.
All of that said, the site will be going down on Thursday evening from about 6pm EST until roughly midnight. We will be using the time to move everything over and make sure that everything looks perfect, shiny, new.
On Friday morning, it may take you a few moments to get used to the new look and new features...but I promise that once you navigate around some...you will like the site even more.
ps. Thanks again to Cara and the volunteers for making this happen. You are all awesome! I am very lucky to be able to spend my days with you.
Yay!!!! I'm super excited about the new site! Way to go everyone!
Yay!!! So excited, especially about Share being mobile compatible. That will be fabulous for our NICU families! Gotta get busy planning my next parent hour! Thank you and your staff for all your hard to work to make this happen!
Thank you James and Cara!
