As we mentioned a while back, NFN is in the process of transitioning to a new version. Our current target date for the launch is June 15. With that said, we have a lot of work to do before that time so please stay tuned for further updates over the next few weeks. At this time, we are focused on setting up the new transcription workflows, refining tutorials as well as generating new web pages and content.
As our current image sets are completed we will make the corresponding interfaces inactive until we launch the new site. For example, the pinned insect interface (“Calbug”) was taken down about a month ago for this reason.
As of today the herbarium, macrofungi and bird image sets are at 90%, 95% and 69% complete respectively. This means that some of these could be finished within the next few days!
Some of you may be wondering if there will be a gap where NFN will be completely inactive before the new site launches. We intend to minimize any such gap by uploading some small images sets on to the site as needed. Our goal is to make the transition as smooth as possible for our volunteers.
