Volunteers wanted for Boatnerd

As many have noted, we have been short of staff this summer and having trouble keeping up with updates, including the photo galleries. We thank everyone for being patient.

We are looking for volunteers in several areas.

1. Help with weekly updates. This one is pretty straightforward – just pick the pictures of the week and send the links and descriptions by e-mail. We usually try to match pictures of the week with current or historic events or themes.

2. Content update/organization. Help is needed updating our fleet gallery of written vessel histories and pictures. All that is needed is someone to send updated text for the written portion of the vessel history. Images can be sent using the links and descriptions.

3. Web site redesign. We have had a long-stalled project on which we need design help. For the past several years we have been working to update the look and organization of Boatnerd. We are inviting users to send mockups of a redesigned Boatnerd site that would modernize the interface and reorganize the way data is accessed.

If you are part of a web company, this could lead to long-term paid work.

Part of this redesign will be an updated content management system that would allow us to expand our pool of volunteers to non-technical users who could help update content.

Thanks for your help and support. Please e-mail if you would like to help.
