User feedback

After nearly three years of development we are very close to officially launching the GEN sites. It has been a long journey setting up such a complex system and then to reconcile it with our collaborators on all continents. Finally we are working on the last tuning in the user interface. What we really need is quality feedback. Where did you have problems in usage? Which functions are difficult to understand? Also - we would be very happy if you could point out what you especially like!

I'd really like to help develop networking and skillsharing tools for ecovillages. Are you looking for developers? -Matt

    Where to put Turkey! It is a historical, political and geographical puzzle:D As we talked with Ulrike, since Turkey is a part of GEN Europe and this is a GEN classification, it could be good to replace Turkey under South East Europe simply, rather than under Balkans specifically. Thank you so much for your prompt reply....

    Thank you so much for your efforts to create GEN sites. I especially liked the "Inspired" button on the page. That allows people to review their inspirations later. Please find below my particular feedback while trying to create a new project in the "Projects" sub menu. -"Create a Project" button is located at the very...
