What else would you like to see the network offer? What are areas that can be improved? How is the website experience? What features would you like implemented? We value your feedback!

Hi - this is looking fantastic! Thanks for all the great work from ALL of you.
I'm wondering if, on the map function, you'll be able to separate out members who are individuals verses organizations. It's ok for now, because it's not too crowded yet, but I can imagine that very quickly that map is going to get pretty full. And it would be helpful to be able to differentiate, as I'd be looking for individuals and/or groups for different purposes.

The website functionality works great. I was able to change my password and upload my latest Mindscreen painting image with ease. Keep up the good work. I look forward to hearing more news from this network.

@ Art of The Danforth: Great idea! We are working on customizing the map function so that we can separate individuals and groups. We will keep you posted on new developments.

@ Art of the Danforth: We have updated the map function so you can search in different ways. If you go to the Members Page, there is a filter to the left of the map. You can filter by member type (Individual or Organization) and you can filter by discipline. Thanks for the suggestion!

This site is awesome!
The discussion section is great for posting up information and sharing over the long term.
The one thing I would suggest is integrateding a FEEDWALL much like status feed on facebook or Twitter. I think this will encourage casual posts by registered members and fast mini updates that everyone would check rather then clicking through discussion sections once they get big. They can also serve to link members to relevent discussion sections on this site.
This will encourage everyone to be familiar with eachother and check more info about who's posting feeds, possibly leading to more collaberative opportunities and direct engagement.

@Jon: Thanks! This is a great suggestion; the website has a lot of potential for developing online social connections. We'll look into it and see what the possibilities are.

Hi, to make the site more interactive we should each have our own mailbox.

@ Kurt - That sounds useful - I think it fits well with Break It Down's suggestion of building up the social aspects of the site. These kinds of improvements will be the focus of our second round of site revisions a few months down the road.

Nice to see some suggestions...here's another one:
What about compiling available venues for rehearsal/performance space?
I know of at least one great but sometimes underused dance studio (www.baviaarts.com) that could benefit if it were included in a list of available resources that artists/groups may need.

How can I receive funding to create a recording and video of my performance reading with piano. Is there a recording studio to help with this? I am a resident of Cabbagetown. Author, Poet, Visual Artist, my new collection of poetry CONCERTO For CABBAGETOWN will be launched at the Arts & Letters Club of Toronto, Oct 20, 2010.
Thank you for your reply,

Your website is showing a fault in Fire Fox and Safari. Top lower right where the page numbers are listed, "add your project" is underneath preventing me and others from adding our projects.

Thanks for the note, Glen! We are working on this - in the meantime, you can add a project by clicking on My Account > Add Project, or use this link http://www.neighbourhoodartsnetwork.org/node/add/project (don't forget to log in first)

I tried creating an account for my collective for the BMO grant an after filling in all areas in great detail I wasn't able to make the account because it kept saying that every picture I tried needed to be replaced even though the dimensions & size were as requested. I had to use my personal account a lot of writing time was wasted. Also in the BMO grant it says "250 wd max" and "750 wd max" when it's actually 250 characters max. I did a lot of extra writing and it almost killed me to try to cut it down. The individual artist pages don't have enough options too, and you "help" pop-ups pop up in unhelpful places like right over where I'm supposed to click submit or over the scroll bar. Overall the site is okay but definitely still needs work. I've never been so stressed out trying to sign up for a site in my life.
