New and Improved SOInc.org

Postby fleet130 » August 27th, 2008, 4:40 pm

The new national website launched today. While there are many similarities in content, there are also many changes.

soinc.org

My guess is that very few of the old links will work.

How does one go about ordering the manuals? There isn't a link to the store anywhere, except for this page.

Also, what happened to the RSS feeds for the FAQs? Not that I subscribed to them... >_>

Whoa now. I have to say, the new site is much more sleek and attractive than the old one. Still no fossils or herpetology lists up yet though :(

As long as it still works you can go to the Science Olympiad Store. The new one should be open soon.

Note: You should be able to also access the Old Site (for a while).

The best thing about the new website, without a doubt, is that according to the trial event page, 'Birds and Bees' is now a lab event. :lol:

Haha that is amazing. And my LI ecology teacher was born in France, so he thought it was birds and flowers. When we corrected him, he was like "But birds and bees dont make sense. At least the birds help the flowers reproduce". :D

Personaly i do not like the new soinc.org too much. Sure it's appearance has improved and looks better but it has lost it's functionality. It might just be the transition phase and things might not be up and running yet like the SO store which i read about, idk. I can't find the draft rules, i don't like the trial events page plus the event desciption page and especially how it doesn't link to the specific event's page like it used to. I know that i'm going to get used to it and like it eventually but for now i rated it as " Idon't like it. Please go away, new website"

actually, on the other site, it didnt really link to the specific events page either, when you went to the event description page.

if you go to the old page: http://71.18.71.58/events/index.htm and let's say you click anatomy next to the number 2 you would go to the Anatomy page. ON the new site you can oly access the anatomy page by using the sidebar.

If anybody happened to save the draft rules for WS to their computer (I should have done that) could they please send it to me. Thanks
