I'd expect to see the list of GoHs, the name of the hotel, and a tab for hotel information, room rate & directions on the front page... all of the things that would go on a con flier, to convince people to go. Membership rates, even if online reg isn't up, with a mailing address if you take snail-mail registrations. The blog layout is good for planning and getting involved, but not so much for a homepage.

what's that I hear? someone volunteering the extra time required to help the web team complete the site development?
the team is trying to create spare time to make improvements and would probably love to have additional help from those able to provide it
Okay, I'll send the webmaster an email and volunteer to help.
there are pages you can get to from the top navigation which allow visitors to find the information they have on the website so far. They are still waiting for some of the information from the responsible parties and will be adding it to the website as soon as they get it.
Penguicon 2012 will be occurring from April 27th to April 29th, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency Dearborn hotel.
hotel information that we have so far is listed under "Attending"(again the group working on this will add more relevant information as they get it)
I have also forwarded your request for information to the webmaster
It was my understanding that the blog was meant as the front page with a sticky post for the top so that there would always be a consistent welcome message and recent news on the front page with the rest of the site is set up with various pages to match the various aspects of the convention.
The group working on this is open to ways to help improve the site so please send additional helpful comments to firstname.lastname@example.org
