    ICC has a new committee established to evaluate their website. Part of the committee’s responsibility is to evaluate the website making recommendations for technical and content improvements.

    I've been appointed to the committee and I know that many users of this forum have some valuable feedback.

    If you would like to provide me with some feedback, please PM me and I’ll see what I can do to make sure your ideas/issues are shared with ICC.

    Just tell them to provide a link to this forum, and send Jeff a check.

    interesting.....they must not have liked the feedback they had from the first group/get-together.

    Or, maybe even though they tried to implement some of the ideas, they had already alienated enough folks that they could not get a following?

    Not trying to be a "smarty britches" here, ...would like to

    know how many times, from the forum members / guests

    / others, that "The Cow" is going to cry wolf and some

    go running and wagging their proverbial [ code ] tails?

    Haven't we been down this road multiple times already?

    The whole site is hard to navigate and is about as fast as an old 286 running on DOS commands

    Been down that road as well. But I have also been appointed to this committee. I will do my very best. Keep in mind that the committee can make a lot of recommendations but the board of directors has the final say.

    For the sake of those who do need advice and do use the ICC site, I wish them good luck, for my self this site is all I will use unless the two sites some how merge.

    I have to tell all of you that I was also a member of the "Denver Group" that worked on the ICC codes forum. Notice that I'm still only on this website. But my point here is that I, like many that were in Denver learned quite a bit going through the process. Now I will not tip my hand here but be assured there were lessons learned. Also be assured that I will work hard on this new venture and hope something very good will come out of it. That's just me the eternal optimist.

    But seriously folks, their e-commerce "store" needs a major overhaul. Purchasing codes, standards, & other products online should not be that tough. I had a heck of a time finding the A117.1-09 edition last week. Products should also be offered in bundles with additional discounts and should show up in a search. The site should also be intuitive in that when you click on a given product associated products automatically show up directly below it. This should also happen when searching for certification requirements. "People who purchased this product for that certification also purchased these products" for another related certification. Each code or standard should also have clearly labeled tabs for additional information. Like a tab for softbound, binder, pdf version, I-Quest version, commentary, etc...
