Description

7 years ago
Hi, all.  We need to shut down registration at 5pm EDT today, Nov 1.  I've assigned this to Ned & Katie, also Mark, because it's important.  That said, Mark is traveling to BCN tomorrow, so it's largely on us.

Here's what I see.  I'd say I've thought this process out 85%, so smart adjustments welcome.

1) Ned slaps a SOLD OUT image on top of all Register links on the top nav.  Keeps the links live to /register

2) Ned, on the /nav page replace current text with 

"Wow! Drumbeat Festival 2010 has sold out, with over 400 participants coming from 40 countries.  Online registration is closed.  If you missed your chance to register, you can catch much of the action online.  Check out the Festival homepage (link to: /festival) for the freshest updates, pics, videos, and more!  Next year, we will publish a book about the state of online learning and web innovations, with most of the content coming fresh from the Festival.  

If you would like to learn about future Drumbeat events, sign up here for our monthly e-newsletter (link to newsletter sign up page)>

If  you have already made travel plans and need to register send us an email (embedded, secure email link to Nathan & Katie), and we'll do our very best to get you into the registration list."

3) Switch out at 5pm EDT (Ned).  

4) Katie, you will be traveling, but at 5 pm EDT, I will turn the registration Wufoo form off from public mode.  You can turn it back on, hopefully password protected, on Wednesday, so you can do on site registrations, as appropriate.

I think that's it, but please add notes if I missed something.

Sorry to spring this on you as an urgent to-do today.  Appreciate your support!

Hi Nathan,

This is great news!

I won't have a problem getting this ready for 5pm. 

I added Toni and Guillermo so they can handle translation

I just want to be clear: I am reading "/nav" page as http://drumbeat.org/festival/register -- correct?

Hi Ned,

maybe we can wait you finish with the PHP includes. In any case, if it took too long, we could provide you the translated text or paste it directly. As you prefer.
