Rad Ref now running Drupal 6, but still buggy

As you may have noticed, the website has been updated and re-themed. It's a lot less hideous looking now, right? However...there are a few things that still need work. If you have any problems or notice any weirdnesses, please describe them here as comments to this post or email info@radicalreference.info and describe what you see. Screenshots a plus!

If you fall into at least one of these categories, please join us!

  • What does the Radical Reference site currently do, and what would we like it to do?
  • What do we like about the site?
  • What do we find frustrating?

The goal of this brainstorming session is to create a wishlist of functions and improvements for the site, and a roadmap for how to implement them.

And stick around after for a little social gathering!
