Ok, consider this a request for a login.

But here is the issue I really want to address -- when I go to the LGM
2014 website, it looks rather lifeless. Is this the face we wish to
present to the intentional visitor, the casual visitor, the
unintentional visitor? What would make it richer? Some photos? Some info
about Leipzig? We should be able to cast the net out to the Leipzig
community to help us become excited about visiting their city!

As someone who has gone to several LGMs and enjoyed them, there is a lot
of energy, a lot of positiveness, optimism, joie de vivre that is
missing from the LGM site. This isn't a criticism, it's meant to be
something of a wake up call.

As the plans for LGM evolve, I would intuitively expect an evolution in
the site, to become richer, having more details about the event, maybe
some information about what's on track and what isn't. This is a
collective effort, not something that we are searching to assign blame
for anything.
