Yeah the website is in pretty desperate need of some love the template we're currently on has aged very badly and some of the tools are sorely out of date. SMF is suppose to have a new version "soon" but not date on it either.
I agree with pretty much everything here, and some additional items I have on my list, right now my hope is I can burn some time over Thanksgiving and Christmas break to do a revamp/update/overhaul. We're missing a lot of content we need now given the Brigade has transformed into a full fledged organization itself and I really want to put together a more robust platform for donations that isn't just event specific.
Are you up for helping?
