So, funny story. Shortly after writing this post, I emailed the board chair, asking that a site redesign be put on next meeting’s agenda. To my surprise he totally agreed, and in fact had already been planning to discuss the website (which I now feel I can name). They were going to redesign it last year, but the guy who volunteered got too busy. Which means I’m not stepping on anybody’s toes, so bonus there.
We had our board meeting this week and I made a little presentation, complete with screenshots of the current site, other gay volleyball sites, and of my own working copy I’d been fiddling with for the last couple of weeks. It was extremely well received, if I do say so myself; I even got compliments from that one board member who’s notoriously hard to please and easily bored. Go me!
I am tremendously excited about this project. It’ll be a great challenge for me but I already have lots of ideas, and can’t wait to test and refine them, pit them against each other in Darwinian competition. Fear me, for I am the God of Web design evolution!
