The new site looks great.  Thanks for all the hard work.  

Clicking around on a machine not using OpenNIC DNS servers I noticed that the links on the "Configure Your DNS" and "Policies" pages hit the .glue domain.  Can you change those to hit the .org domain instead?  The How-To's pretty much have to be changed to be useful, policies could stay the same but we might as well make them as widely accessible as possible as well.

I am very pleased to announce a new website and member registration
system for OpenNIC. This has been months is the work, and I think it
is ready for release.

The new site I really hope is straight to the point with information
easily found. I think the mistake with the old site is it tried to do
too much.

Voting will be on the main site still, with no plans to change this
yet. Now onto the new membership registration system.

One of the pains with OpenNIC was the variety of sites you had to
remember a username for. This has been addressed with a central
authentication system. This system allows you to use the one username
on all OpenNIC sites. This only covers the main webite and the mailing
list so far. The wiki will follow in the coming months.

What this means for you? You will have to visit to create a new account, as the old
accounts have not been ported over.

If you have any dramas with the sites please email
general AT with your issue. SSL will be coming to
these sites very soon once a choice iin providers is made.

I really hope that all of this work makes OpenNIC eaiser for all to use!

I'm happy to answer any quetions.

Thanks for all the fish!
