Hello Dave, 

Thank you very much for the detailed feedback! We really appreciate this!
Please be so kind to see my comments/questions in line.

As an overall clarification note, newatlarge.icann.org is in Beta Testing
version and there are a few remaining pages and functions to be built.
Hence, you may find certain links are not working. We will inform the
community when new items are added to the website and will invite you to
provide further inputs.

Thank you!

on	the	Beta At-Large Website

>Dear All,
>Please find below issues at first sight:
>1.	Login button not working

For the short and medium term, login will be available for ICANN Staff,
who will administer the website in coordination with community leaders.
Hence, login does not apply to visitors yet. That being said, a login is
not required to use all the functions on the website.

>2.	Sitemap missing

Good catch! We plan to add a link in the footer for sitemap before
official launch in January 2016.

>3.	Search engine referencing bad as simple words like ALAC or ALS give
>no results

After we launched the beta site and created the new URL
newatlarge.icann.org, the search appliance needs to be redirected to the
new URL. We are aware of this issue and are in process fixing the search

>4.	Social Media Logins (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ etc)
>missing. Facebook Connect is very popular in my country

We will likely not implement social media login due to security

>5.	No commenting module

Thank you for this feature enhancement idea! ICANN does have the
capability to add commenting feature and we will run this idea by the
Website Revamp Taskforce.

>6.	No twitter feed module to display recent and live feeds

We have two options for displaying social media content: 1) embed twitter
feed & Facebook fan page on homepage; 2) link out to twitter & Facebook
accounts from a prominent place on homepage. Both options are under
consideration and we will run this through the Website Revamp Taskforce.

>7.	No Facebook Fan Page module

See response to no.6

>8.	Contact-Us missing

It should be placed at the footer after the Contact-Us page is built.

>9.	Wrong hyperlink for "Get Involved"

ŒGet Involved¹ page is under development and it is currently linked to its

>10.	Many hyperlinks not working default to alses beginner's guide

Could you be so kind to point out the hyperlinks that you see? If you are
referring to the hyperlinks in the footer, they are linked to Beginner¹s
Guide because their respective pages are under construction.

>I will stop here are there are many. Time for corrections and then I will
>point out more

Please keep the feedback flowing! To make it easier for tracking feedback,
you could post them on the feedback collection wiki page here
https://community.icann.org/x/a69YAw, or write to me off-list.

>Best regards
