YM section of LDS.org falls short again

Posted in LDS Online by ldsym on December 29, 2008

Back in July I wrote about the YM section of LDS.org being late in posting the theme for 2009.     Unfortunately, they are again out of date.

2009 starts in 3 days, and they have dated info posted on lesson manual usage.

As the screen-cap above shows, there is no indication what manual is to be taught from in 2009.   Obviously you can surmise that the rotation holds, and it is back to Manual #1 in 2009, but we should not be left guessing.  In all fairness, If you search around enough on the site you can find another page that indicates to use Manual #1 in 2009, but dated info prominently displayed on the site is an unacceptable oversight.

Frankly it is not like the Church to do anything for public consumption that is not perfect, and there is no excuse for outdated info in a lead website for a 13 million member organization.

    I read a blog post on tech.lds.org that described the workflow of passing on feedback left on the website. Basically, each section of lds.org has content owners who are responsible for what’s available. Maybe noting the outdated info in the feedback page is all they need to jumpstart a change.
