[Marketing] (no subject)

Taking this to a seperate thread to avoid discussion getting in the way of voting (this is a common way get distracted and avoid quorum).

Jody (and others involved),

Would you mind summarising your reasoning for accepting this component 2. I have not had bandwidth to review and will be basing my vote on my trust of your reasoning and judgement.

Cheers, Cameron

The spreadsheet, listing contract items is provided. Each row lists a deliverable and a link to a page demonstrating the functionality. In a few cases an issue was found, the spreadsheet links to the issue and these were resolved prior to sign off.

My initial feedback (prior to issues being fixed) was concern about cross linking of content, Asan example ensuring events showing up on the project, initiative and local chapter pages so we only had to edit the event page. Although this was “missed” during wireframe sessions the functionality would be a pain to do by hand.

With that fixed the table has four items for a judgement call:

a) download page: idea was discarded during planning and wireframe mockups and not followed up.

b) event page, we did not outline a calendar view during wireframe session. Something we reviewed and signed off on. The page now lists future events in sorted order making it “easier” to find upcoming activities.

c) event page dynamic social media content, links are provided rather than pulling in recent tweets for flickr photos.

d) newsletter, while templates have been provided the GeoForAll community has not expressed a solid interest.
