Message to LP: Get your Website in Order

Once again I am doing work for the LP that they are too incompetent to do on their own. Today, a front page item on the CPAC sponsorship featured a logo that looked like it was edited by someone using MS-Paint, and by an odd chance I found yet another site problem. Here’s the email I sent to the LP (the image here is for illustrative purposes, only the fixed image was sent):

CPAC logo fixing

Two things:

1) the CPAC logo on the front page looks unprofessional in contrast to the stature of the CPAC and the LP. This may simply be a problem with the supplied art from CPAC, but it should not be as illegible. I have attached a replacement jpg that you should consider using.

2) The listing of elected officials page is incomplete and ends at Illinois. Also, it is not clear when this was last updated so I was wondering if the list was current as of the most recent elections.

See? I’m trying to be nice.

If you find any technical, visual or navigational problems with the LP.org website, CC me on the email. I’m trying to establish what kind of response is actually going on, or if there is any response at all to website feedback. I’m sure the state delegates who vote on LNC roles would be interested in knowing if reported problems are being fixed or ignored (we shall see).

If anyone is curious, I sent the email to the contacts on this page. Our favorite, George Getz, and a new person, Operations Director Jennifer Villarreal. There seems to be no links to web staff to send items to, so I would advise against a blind email to webmaster.

  1. Agreed… whoever is updating their site must have failed art class as a 6 year old. What webmaster of a national organization can’t use photoshop? And if cost is an issue, photoshop elements or the gimp for crying out loud!
