Probably because we do not have good "usage patterns" that could make us understand: - how often the website is being used - what sections are used most - what sections are difficult to navigate to - what sections are directly exposed through Google and people go directly to (as opposed to through the navigation) There has not been an effort by anyone in the -www group, that I remember, to pester DSA and mirror admins to get the website logs, aggregate them and use some statistics and web oriented tools to get some usage information . With this information in hand one can make *qualified* suggestions related to what items to highlight, what items to remove from the menu list, what items to link better, what items to "hide", etc, etc. IMHO the problem with the current website is not the look in itself, but the fact that users have a difficult time navigating it or finding specific information in it. Regards Javier  This could be done, independently from DSA and website mirror admins through "hidden" web bugs but I'd rather we avoid them.
