I would like to offer a huge congratulations on the redesign and relaunch of the new site. This is just amazing. A huge improvement over the v1 of the site, a great representation of the community and profession(s), very clean and intuitive, and I am sure the kudos will keep rolling in.

Cheers-John

Agreed. Thanks to the IxDA team for putting in the years of effort that this project has taken so far. This organization just keeps getting better, between the conferences, the site, the local groups, and all the other programs - how lucky we are to have such a great community!

I'm really blown away by the new site. The old one served its simple purpose well, but this is an immense improvement. I'm excited to see the community expand to fill out the new space!

I'd like to add my congratulations, kudos, and thanks for everyone who made this new site a reality!  It's especially nice to have a home for local groups under the umbrella of the main site.

Yes, this is an enormous accomplishment!  Huge props to Liz, Greg, Carl, Ben, Steve, and everyone else that worked so hard on this.  You guys rock!  It's a wonderful thing for our community.

Since this is an IXDA site, I'm going to be extremely critical. I'm not offering any kudos. I'm really disappointed that with the lack of planning around the user experience.

Just on Notifications:
1) Waking up to over 15 IXDA messages was somewhat annoying. As of relaunch I'm getting spammed by IXDA daily emails. You failed to remember my Notification settings from the previous iteration. I had to redo them.

2) All the job postings now only contain the job title in the subject, and a link to the job post. That extra click is a waste of time. Especially on the fly when you're on your iphone or other mobile device. Why bother getting the notification at all if I'm forced to go to the website?

3) No easy 1-click unsubscribe or clear footer explaining how to. Can we say Can-Spam compliance rules? (http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/business/ecommerce/bus61.shtm) IXDA: you of all organizations, should get this right!

As for the website... I don't even want to get started on what's wrong with that. Fix your notifications!

Like I mentioned on my twitter. A major improvement of the site. I have been designing and developing on Drupal as well and it is a great CMS. The new graphic design is for me what stands out most for this change. The feeling of the site has changed to the better and the page looks much more engaging to me.

Also my kudos!

Agreed! I imagine we interaction designers can be a pretty formidable bunch for whom to design a web-based solution. But it clearly shows that some serious experience, expertise and time went into the redesign. We thank you!

I'm happy to see all the improvements, but I'd like to be removed from the constant email updates from all the threads. I have visited my account and removed all subscriptions, but that has not solved the problem. Any suggestions?
