The New Website is Here! The New Website is Here!
Well, here we are—the new website is live. It’s lighter, it’s brighter, and it’s completely redesigned. I hope you like it! Since the previous design had been in use since 2007 (can you believe it has been that long?!) I would say it was about time for a redesign.
Probably the biggest change in terms of content is the exclusion of our current score, which was a feature of our website ever since the very first version debuted in time for the 2000 contest. So, where did it go? Or, rather, WHY did it go? In short, it was a feature that had outlived its usefulness. When we first started posting our score to the site one had to actually listen to the contest in its entirety to perhaps catch an update on our score. Since we were keeping score anyway, it wasn’t a big deal to go ahead and post an update to the site whenever we got a chance. However, this is 2016, and for several years now the trivia masters have been posting the scores for all the teams online in the form of a downloadable spreadsheet instead of reading them over the air. Since posting our own score updates online is just overkill, it has been axed on our new site. C’est la vie. The rest is still here, but totally redesigned and updated and modernized for 2016. Woohoo!
And in case you aren’t actually following along at home, trivia is only 23 days away, so get your vacation bids in if you haven’t already. If you’re a team member on our mailing list keep an eye on your inbox, and everyone else keep an eye on our Facebook page, as we’ll be sending out the annual pre-trivia email and soliciting your input in making our plans.
