Updates and follow up

  • Beta site moved to production 16 April, but by that evening the Wiki had to be reverted to having the old site skin around it.
  • There have been many comments and complaints about the inability to find the Wiki on the new design. Feedback was sent to the product manager yesterday and a meeting was held regarding better links. There will be better links to the Wiki, some of them fairly soon. 
  • The skin on the Wiki will not be updated until the urgent needs are fixed.
