For the past two months the N1MM Dev Team has been working to migrate the
current website and its 900+ pages of documentation to a new platform. The work
is 100% Content-complete and 90% Feature-complete.
The Primary Goal of the migration is to improve the ease-of-use in
installing, configuring, and operating N1MM+ in contests. We cannot reduce the
manual's page count, but we think we can deliver better tools for browsing and
searching those pages to find the answers that you seek. Hopefully these better
tools will bring you quick access to the right information and make you more
The Secondary Goal is to reduce the burden on the N1MM Dev Team
members, who find themselves answering, re-answering and re-re-answering
questions that are difficult to get answered on our current ill-equipped
website. This new platform should deliver on that primary goal of
At first glance the new website looks like the old website, but
under-the-covers things are very different. Some of the most significant
- Reduced Web-Page Count - the material in the new N1MM Manual
section consists of 31 web-pages, reduced from the current 104 web-pages.
Fewer but Larger web-pages should eliminate much of the page-flipping when
looking for answers with a browser's <ctrl>+F find function
- Expanded Menu - navigate to one of those 31 pages directly from the
- Search and Advanced Search - it works. It's fast. Sorted by
Relevance. Results are highlighted on the page
- Bug Reports and Feature Requests - transparent, search-able. Read
your BRs and FRs on-line. Read postings from other users, and the Dev Team's
responses, before deciding if you need to submit one
- Explorer-like File Download - click-able hierarchy should be
easy-to-use and familiar to anyone on Microsoft Windows
- Single-table Supported Contests List - all 400+ supported contests
are listed in one table that can be sorted, searched and filtered. Rather than
having to know where to look before you look: Is this a UDC
contest? An HF contest? A QSO Party? ...
The Challenge to N1MM+ Users
If you have any spare time, please spend a little on the prototype website.
Experiment with the new features listed above - particularly the Search,
Advanced Search and Contests List. Create a bogus Bug Report and Feature
Request. Leave comments, suggestions and questions in the Comments sections of
the Prototype Description page. We hope to take the new website "live" in a few
weeks and need some diligent testing before throwing that switch.
