I'd like to see the 'Awards' area of our site better organized.

How about (a) one section for everything that is current, and (b) a separate section for the 'retired' ones.

Further, create a separate section for current "Tours". By separating the Tours from the rest of the awards listing (quite long), I believe it becomes easier to use.

I agree wholeheartedly. The current website organizes awards by whomever posted them; that works for no one.

I agree with the awards and tours and all. It all did it's job well when we installed it all back in the day and got it working properly but now it is long out dated. The current awards system is native to phpVMS / Nabeel and the Tour Module was written by David Clark SimPilot who is now long gone from the scene. Hopefully the new system addresses the separation issues unlike the old ones never did.

When I was IT guy here at United I tired like hell behind the scenes but was never able to make it work without breaking a half dozen other things so I left it be. I tested on a private server.
If I could I would. If I don't, it's because I am lazy!

Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark. Professionals built the Titanic.
