But don't think anybody from us is happy with this. There was a (way 
too long) search for a good CMS that could fulfill our needs, but the 
main problem was that there were just too few people (with time) to 
push it further faster. We only have so much resources for this kind of 
work (even though our work force there has expanded recently as well, 
thanks to James Gavin).

I'm afraid that's not that easy with our old site.

The new site just started a few weeks ago, and it has seen major 
progress since then; it already contains way more information than the 
old site, and allows for many more possibilties.
All that's left is a proper design (contest ongoing), and a different 
navigational structure. It won't take us half a year, but any help is 
surely appreciated.
