When you are on our website do you think it is easy to get around from page to page or find the information you want?

Please elaborate on your response as to why or why not. If you have suggestions on making it better let us know.

Not really. When I saw someone mention that their was a form for official river surveys it took me forever to find it.

Also I know species profiles exist like this one http://www.nanfa.org.../actessel.shtml as I can find them on google searches, but for the life of me I cannot find them on the main NANFA page. Because info I want and/or find interesting is hard to find their I tend not to look at the page at all. Which came back to bite me at the Ohio convention when I failed to notice the schedule was posted their.

Josh, those articles are on the web page called "Publication". And this does bring up another issue that I have with the web-page layout. I think in some places we have pages that are too "tall"... so that you have a lot of infor that is not on the first screen and you don't always have a good visual queue to know that you need to scroll down to find more cool stuff.

In general, I think the webpage is well organized and easily navigated. Perhaps I've grown used to it but in any case it's layout seems logical to me.
I don't have any "gripes" but if I were to change anything, I would start with the main navigation panel on the left. I would prefer it have slightly larger text and/or a bit more space for when I'm spazzing out.
The only other item worthy of comment in my opinion is the completion of content which has been largely addressed (kudos to whoever has been working on filling in the content).

I think I'd agree. The site itself has GREAT information, but I too have had difficulty finding things from time to time. I kind of feel like it could have a "smoother" look to it too.

I think there should be a link from the home page to the forum.

OOPS - thanks. I overlooked it a dozen times. It blends into the surroundings like one of those photos of a copperhead, where if you can't find it in three seconds you would have stepped on it. I think if the link just said "Forum" it would be easier to spot.

Oh, I definitely agree with you that it needs to be redesigned and as part of that we need to emphasize things in a different or better way... that's what Andrew is looking for... so thanks for jumping in with your answers... I didn't mean to cut you off or anything... we need everyones feedback.

I've known that it is there for years, but it still takes me awhile to find it each time I access the forum through the main site (which is not very often). I agree that it should be more prominent.

I'd be inclined to agree with Josh & Josh. Not that I think the website is bad, because I don't, and using the search on the NANFA site usually helps me find what I'm interested in. But not always.
