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!

1-5pm, drop in anytime
220A E 4th Street (between Avenues A & B), East Village, NYC
Contact nyc@radicalreference.info if you want to participate remotely

  • Are you interested in Radical Reference or already a volunteer?
  • Do you have experience with website usability or want to gain some?
  • Are you a coder with Drupal, CSS or other web development skills to improve or share?

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!
