Hey <Name Removed>,
Thanks for the feedback 🙂
I like the front page of ravelry, I’m waiting for the signup confirmation email so I can get inside. I do rather appreciate most people are not computer nerds. Most of my professional life has been support focussed, which tends to help keep me grounded to that reality (besides, computers are mere tools, people make things interesting).
Providing an example is great, thank you. I’ll have a good look around ravelry when I gain access.
As for finding things on the Rowany site, I’ll probably tackle that once the site is more populated with “stuff”. I think the new structure will help greatly (once implemented), but how things like the menu are displayed will be worth consideration. I don’t like the current look and feel of the menu, it’s a bit clunky, old school 90’s and will likely change. I’m also looking into a menu that better displays hierarchy, perhaps in the sidebar or a drop-down as that will definitely improve a viewer’s ability to find things.
Oh YES, I very much like the idea of being able to display people’s heraldry.
We are looking at membership systems in order to provide functionality we think should be there. I’ll add this to the criteria for judgement.

Perhaps a similar format? Not everyone who joins the SCA is a computer nerdy type, and those of us that aren’t struggle a little.
