We’re running through our last bits of testing and fixes before the launch of the new P.E.T. site, and I wanted to say thanks to everyone who made it possible.
First and foremost are Photo One’s Jim Mock and Cindy Samco, who have been living with the redesign for a long time, and made it all work, despite my semi-regular inconsistencies and outrageous demands. Jim deserves special kudos for taking the initiative and moving the site to WordPress, and then coming up with an improved design less than a month before the site launched. I think Cindy watched nearly every video — there are over 400! — as she uploaded them to the new site, and got the back end parts of the site up and running without a hitch.
As we got closer to launch, we sought out some help from some subscribers and Elements Village members. As I noted over in the Village, we wouldn’t be ready to go without their help. Thanks to Esther, Christell, Sepiana, Charles, Johnny, Mary Lou, Judy, Mike, Jens, Wendy, Diana, Don, Val, Byron, Tammy, Eleanor, and Tami. We got great feedback from everyone, but Esther and Christell get the Gold Star Award for visiting almost every page — and then — clicking on nearly every link on the site; I’m sure that there are still some broken links around, but that’s my fault, not theirs.
Thanks to everyone who helped; I really appreciate it.
