New Forum Launched!
Posted 06 March 2006 - 11:47 PM
It's called Cross-browser Device Assessment Panel (CDAP). The purpose of this new forum is similar to the Web Site Hospital that we've had for years. Members will have the ability to do online testing and get feedback and solutions for improvements and repairs.
The key to this new forum is involvement by peers and experts. The new forum has many "stickies" that contain resources, tools and other forms of assistance. The forum itself is designed for ongoing input and review. Those in the community who want to share their skills and knowledge with accessibility, browser issues, CSS, etc. will have plenty of opportunities to do so.
The press release is set for official release on March 7.

I think most people think no more about other people and what browser/device combination they may be using than those students did about the leaves. We tend to assume that the other person sees what we see. It's never, ever true.
Most regulars here are aware of this. Perhaps 5% of all Internet users are aware in the sense that they are constantly watching out where they may get tripped up. If we can bump that 5% up to say 6%, or 8% or more by having this Forum, then I think we can all be very pleased.

Very interesting idea. I like it very much. Congrats and well done!
By the way, praveen, don't browse forums, just use the new posts search. Saves time
thats what i tend to do most of the time. but once in a while just go to the forums in search of something specific
thanks for the Suggestion though

I can't take any credit whatsoever. I'm the "ad lady" these days...trying to LEARN how to generate revenue here. We're not used to actually earning money, ha ha. But, knowing we can pay for ourselves and do more things, such as pay for press releases, is cool. All I did for this new forum was play Indian Chief and push some official buttons.
I would direct all questions to Barry and/or Liz, for your guides to this new forum and ways to enhance it and make it the useful tool it is hoped it can be for the Community.
As always, we thank you all in the Cre8 Community for your support.

Thanks for the kind words, folks, but Elizabeth deserves a large part of the credit for opening my eyes to some of the mobile and accessible issues. I'd like to mention too that the whole admin/moderation team deserves credit. We've really tried to carve out as clearly as we can a slice of 'stuff' that was already rolling along. This was so that it was easier for people to grasp the concept and hopefully encourage some new visitors we haven't seen before. The same collegial spirit that is evident 'out front' is present even more so in the back. There were sometimes differences of opinion as we attempted to do the surgery and we'll continue to tweak and refine boundaries to make the process as efficient as we can.
However all that has been developed so far is an infrastructure. This will be a success or failure to the extent the Cre8asite community finds this a useful innovation and gets involved. So please use it. Also if you have access to particular browser/device combinations that are somewhat less common, then please take a look in there from time to time and see if someone is asking for the kind of help you can give.
