... if there's enough room on the UPSU.net homepage for "What is UPSU?" and "Take a tour of UPSU.net" links? There's certainly a good argument for both; how many students at the University of Portsmouth - or outside of it, for that matter - know that the Union is in fact two companies - UPSU and UPEL - and they do two very different jobs under the same roof, for largely the same target audience?
And also, while we're on the subject, how many people really know how huuuge a website UPSU.net is, and what it can offer students?
I think it might be time to reassess how well the Union promotes what it actually does: there's a helluva lot going on at the Union throughout the year, and pretty much every student - whether they're resident in Pompey or a distance learner - can benefit from at least something going on here.
In the meantime, I'm trying to figure out how we can a) streamline the galleries so they're as simple to use and update as, say, Flickrdotcom (or, for that matter, whether we should just invest in a Flickr account and put all our photos up there instead?) and b) really expand peoples' public profiles into something useful and interesting to wander around.
