Say Hi! to the New INFORMS Website

INFORMS has a new website and it looks great. I was the founding editor of INFORMS Online way back in 1995, building off some preliminary work done by Jim Bean and ManMohan Sodhi. Over the years, IOL changed quite a bit but I could still see lots of the original work my original editorial team had done. With this new site, INFORMS has revamped everything from scratch (well, not quite from scratch: I still see a bit of previous work in places like the membership directory, though that may change, and things like the Resources Page have only undergone a facelift, not a revamp). I’m still exploring the nooks and crannies, but my initial impression is that this is a much better face for the organization and for our field.

They are still in the process of doing the changeover, so some things are not working right (see their blog entry for more information), but overall it is a huge improvement over the previous website.

    The “renew membership” link is broken. I get a Page not found error (404). If I try to use the contact web-master form on the Contact Informs page (http://www3.informs.org/index.php?c=367&kat=Contact+Form), it reports

    Error: Post from a different server

    Hope they can fix it before they start losing members.

    It’s been a while since ashutosh’s comment and this is probably old news, but I did want to point out that both the renewal and web-master contact pages are working and the URL above is incorrect.
