After a lot of work – mainly from other people – the new mammalwatching.com is now live and appears, more or less, to be working. When building this we tried to take on board a bunch of comments I got from people here a year or two ago – better search function, ability to comment more easily on reports, ability to see most recent comments on the blog and so on. I hope to improve some of this over the coming months (especially being able to make comments on individual reports). But its been a lot of work just to recreate what I had before, in a shiny new site, so please bear with me. In the meantime I am relying on advice and feedback from you all to test and improve the new site.
First, I am sure it isn’t all working perfectly. Please let me know what needs fixing.
Second, I am sure that things can be improved. Please let me know what you like and what you don’t like.
Third the new community forum (or community blog) ( no… I don’t know what to call it) is now here http://www.mammalwatching.com/blog/ and it is integrated into the site. Please post on here from now on. Hopefully all your logins etc have been moved automatically to the new site… but let me know if there are glitches.
Hope everyone’s summers are going well. Mine improved significantly this weekend with some Gervais Beaked Whales off of North Carolina. Hope to see some of you at the British Bird Fair next weekend.
Oh one more thing …. I am interested to see whether this update gets sent out … so if you get this could you just comment below to say you got it?
