To do list:
- I’d like to try to publicize this project in order to increase exposure to the most important demographic: Durhamites that are not yet connected via
listservselectronic mailing lists. I’ll probably reach out to Bull City Rising (Done), The Independant Weekly, and The Durham News (Done) first. I would love to hear your ideas about how to get the word out.
- A custom header would be nice. Done.
- Address general ease-of-use issues. One example: a concise explanation of how to use the map needs to penned and placed in a prominent location, like directly under the map on the main page. Done.
- I’d like to draw the neighborhoods that don’t yet have
listservselectronic mailing lists (but probably should) to make it easier for someone to create it.
- Create color-coded clickable links for each Partners Against Crime district just below the list of neighborhoods.
- Broad neighborhood
listservelectronic mailing list enrollment mixed with communication between neighborhoods may correlate with reduced crime. I’d like to study that using my map and publicly available crime data.
- Something that would be really cool would be some way to dynamically/automatically obtain
listservelectronic mailing list enrollment data so that I could relay that information here. That feature would be difficult and tedious to implement manually. Done.
- In each neighborhood, I’d like to list links to blogs whose authors live within that neighborhood.
- Desperately need a contact form. Done.
- I got a savvy suggestion from the Splat Space
listservmailing list: offer advertising space to local realtors. Interested at the prospect.
For now, the number one priority is to complete the list of neighborhood pages available. I’m up to five or six, with ~60-70 more to go. oof.
What else could this website use?
Update: I accomplished the task of dynamically updating membership numbers for most
listservselectronic mailing lists. Surprisingly, most of the issues come from the Google hosted listservselectronic mailing lists. Yet another reason to use Yahoo groups instead (and this is coming from a Google fanboy).
