Posted by: Dan Rutledge on 12/28/10 07:29 AM EST
We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, that all your traveling has been safe, and that all your holiday events went off without a glitch! It's been a fantastic year of growth here at SignUpGenius where our member base grew by over 700%! We're very excited about 2011 and providing fun new features and continuing to expand our presence on the web. Please tell your friends at school, church, and on the sports field about our site!
Our Christmas Tree Contest is now over and the results of the judges are in. This was our hardest contest to judge yet... with many creative entries! We're so thankful for everyone that shared their Christmas with us by submitting a photo of their tree. After tallying the votes of our judges, the winners are:
Both winners will receive a $100 Visa gift card. In addition, the first 20 entries will receive a $5 Starbucks gift card. Thanks again to everyone that submitted!
Have a fantastic New Year! Enjoy one last cartoon for 2010 that I drew in honor of one of my sons!

SignUpGenius has so much promise to help groups simplify organization! I have some recommendations for improvements:
1) Give more lines for details concerning Location (IE: Space for address, phone # and TOPIC)
2) Create an option to create a contact list that will make it easy for everyone goto SignUpGenius to check for other members' phone#'s
3) On "People Needed" tab, allow sign up slots to be moved up and down manually. Right now, you can enter a title and select its organization as "alphabetical" or "As entered"... but when you edit, maybe your members want things moved around a bit. It would eliminate having to retype titles/sign up slots.
4) Perhaps create types of "Title/sign-up" slots. One thing that we want to know, is who will attend. It would be nice to be similar to Evite where members can simply click, "Yes, No, Maybe".
5) Allow Comments to be posted Anonomously or with abbreviated names.
Keep up the good work developing this site. It has a lot of potential. I have already recommended it to organizers at other schools.
Keep up the great work

Thanks so much for the comment and taking the time to write your suggestions. These are some great ideas, some of which are in our development plan and some of which we will definitely look at adding. I'll send you an email to follow up on all the specifics!

My name is Christophe Voisin, I'm the director of the Cobb Challengers Gymnastics and also head coach of the Boys competitive team. I love your the sign up genius it's making my work so much easier. Is there any chance we may see a Gymnastics Theme for Boys (a lot od people think gymnastics it's only a girls sport but it's not).
Thanks for your consideration.

Thanks for writing in and I'm so glad that our system is working well for you.
I'll make a note to have that looked at in our next batch of themes. We work with a specific image library that grants us a full license to use the images and we will just need to research it fully and see if we can find another alternative that would be more fitting for boys gymnastics. Thanks for the great suggestion.
