    Hi everyone,

    Would anyone like to user test my website today or tomorrow? I would like to do it in person. I could come to you (or one of your friends) or you could come to 2 Forresters Lane (off Tory Street opposite Bunnings).

    I would love to find someone who is not familiar with what we do (fresh eyes). If I could find a homeowner with a CSC card so much the better...

    Hi Sylvia,
    How masterful exactly is 5/10? Is it attached to ability to work the laptop or experience attempting to lure people to attend Transition Towns workshops/lectures etc??

      It is aimed for people who are actively involved in comms in some form. So doers. Sam and Ants will help you look where you have come from, and also help you create a comms plan for next year. So if you have the project and task (communications challenge) around Transitions Towns that sounds great.

    PayPal seems to default to two tickets... Could be user error!

    • Silvia

      Hi Charlotte - I have edited it - try now. If it still shows 2 just change it to 1 and click update - this should edit the total for you. Let me know if you have another issues.
