sure, though I think the problem with that stance is that many others 
were not unhappy. The main problem last year was that the content was 
provided way way too late, and that feedback (the negative one) was 
given at about the same time, which meant that most people did not have 
the time to properly learn a new tool nor where the creators of the site 
given neither proper feedback nor time to fix things.

Just a note: do not wait too long to present the new site. It will take 
time to adjust to it and learn the tools, and if we *really* want to 
this years mistakes, we should fix the process and the delays in getting 
ready to actually do something, because there never were any big 
problmes with the tools, as far as I am concerned.

So, to sum it up: present the new site ASAP, it even needn't be 100% 
finished and give people time to get accustomed to it. Then immedialty 
start working on content and the process of getting content.
