BETA explained

You have probably seen the Beta sign at the top of the website – what does this mean? Well, in short, it mean this website is a work in progress.

We are aware there are glitches, incomplete pages, links that don’t work, some accessibility issues… but instead of the backroom staff – that’s Beki, Freddie and myself and our wonderful developers, Tammie and Mason – deciding how we think you would like to use the site, we are really keen to hear how you are finding it so we can make the changes you want.

We introduced this new website as many of you asked for Shift.ms to include social networking features so you can add friends, receive notifications on posts that interest you and generally see what’s going on in the community. It took us a while to get here, but we’re delighted that we now have a new website to build from.

Since this new site went live last week, we have started to make some of the changes you have asked for including increasing the text size, trying to make the pages less cluttered and looking to make the site as easy to navigate as we can. Please keep your feedback coming! If there are any glitches you notice, or pages you find difficult to see or use, please let us know by replying to this article below or via the feedback tab on the right hand side of the page.

We are a small team with limited resources, but we want you to find this site awesome. It may take us time to make all the changes, but we will get there!

In other news, after returning from my travels a couple of weeks ago (read more about it here), I have joined Beki as the second Shift.ms employee. This is only my first week, but Shift.ms has a busy few months ahead with exciting projects lined up. More about this soon.

We really look forward to discussing with you ways we can improve Shift.ms. This is your community and we really want to help make it as useful a space as we can. Let us know what you want.

Thanks,

George
