Send Out An SOS: New GOP Website Not An Improvement, Embarrassing
With nearly 120 votes counted so far, the Atlas poll has indicated many are displeased with the new Brooklyn GOP website.
Just 7% of voters say that the new site is good but needs some improvement, while nearly 30% say the site is embarassing and fundamentally flawed.
But there’s an even more important number that should worry the webmaster(s) of the new site. Almost 65% of voters believe the old website, which was uniformly panned and criticized for its lack of updates and terrible format, was a better site than the one now.
As you may recall, I previously wrote a piece about the old Brooklyn GOP website, calling it a disgrace.
This new website, I must confess, is not much of an improvement, and the designers do not appear to be moving toward any kind of fundamental restructuring any time soon.
With this lack of effort on the part of the Brooklyn GOP leadership, you almost have to wonder if they still care about the website. For the sake of the party, we hope they do, or, at the very least, issue an SOS to someone who can fix the website.
Then again, maybe they already know too many have been alienated who might have offered helped. If they had acted sooner (such as in September, when I first criticized the site) maybe they wouldn’t be in this position.
I’ll continue to keep you updated on the status of the poll. Be sure to vote!
