Yay! A New BC NDP Website

November 21, 2008

Finally, replacing the website from hell (with very weird URLS), is the new BC NDP Website.

Trust me, this new version is way better. For one, the URLS are properly formed and the graphics have been also improved.

But the major thing is the content updates. For instance, the RSS feeds are now properly formed, and there are widgets to place those RSS feeds in your blog (blogspot blog, not wordpress blog, where you have to put the RSS feed into a RSS widget, like this site does) . There is also a BC NDP Twitter and a widget for that.

Taking a page from Obama, there is also a “Rapid Responder” section of the website, which gives average supporters, such as facebookers and bloggers the tools necessary to promote the BC NDP’s message and counter the spin.

Of course, there are a few things that could be improved.

There needs to be an online form to join to BC NDP to make it easy to join. Being able to download and snail mail the membership form just doesn’t cut it in today’s electronic world.

Another thing. I notice that the list of bloggers is missing some important BC NDP supporting blogs. Off the top of my head, Dipper Chick and State of OUR Forests by Bob Simpson should most definitely be on there. At least they got Chad In Kamloops.

But all in all, I think that the BC NDP got a hole-in-one on this one.
