We are in the process of redesigning our website to make it easier and more intuitive to use. One of the most important steps in the redesign is called "Information Architecture" and/or "Usability design". Basically, that means understanding the users of our site, and making things findable and intuitively grouped.

We are doing a study to see how our users would envision the grouping of all our features. If you would like to help us in this study and have been using the GYE tools and features for at least 3 months (and you feel you understand the make-up of our network and which tools are the most useful/powerful), please send me an e-mail and I will send you a link to our study. We only have room for a few participants, so we will select the first few that seem best suited to the task. Please write us a few lines describing why you feel you would be suited for the study.

Thank you!
Webmaster of - Maintaining Moral Purity in Today's World. We’re here on a quest ; it’s really all a test. Just do your best and G-d will do the rest.

The following is a inside scoop about the future plans of GYE!

Taken from The Lakewood Scoop

[quote="Yaakov - GYE Admin (Known to all as: The Heiliger Guard Shlita)]

...... I just want to point out that we recently gave Torah Umesorah full admin access to our website and they are in the process of editing many of the articles, stories and testimonials to remove anything that could bring people to “hirur” or give anyone new ideas. They are also changing the explicit words to cleaner terms. They are doing this because they endorse our program and recommend it to their schools and mechanchim, and they want to make sure that our website will be free of any mich’shol and be a credit to its good name. We are happy that they are doing this for us!

We are also in the process of redoing our website much more professionally now to build the framework to accommodate tens of thousands of Yidden. On the new site, there will be a strong division between “Prevention” (for everyone) and “Treatment” (for those who already stumbled). Users will not be able to access the “Treatment” website without first getting a disclaimer that lets them know that the content is more explicit. (They would have to press that they are over a certain age and that they agree to x,y and z)…

Also, we have already designed the registration system for the new website to include a drop-down where people identify if they are married or not, male or female, ‘addict’ or ’spouse of addict’. Depending on the choices the members make when signing up, there are special “permission” rules in the articles. Those in the other categories of membership will not be able to view the articles that are not appropriate for them to view. Men will not see articles about women, Bochurim won’t see articles that talk about marriage issues, etc…

Once these safeguards are in place, I believe that GYE will be more suited to becoming a fully mainstream organization for all that relates to the areas of Prevention & Treatment of these issues in today’s difficult world.

Blessed is the day GUARD was born,
      fortunate is the mother who bore him,
          Privileged are we to have been the Ginny pigs.

How did we get here?
      1. GUARD started the as a hobby
      2. kedusha got our fist Haskamah (how???)
      3. Klal Yisrael got addicted to the internet - or did that happen first?
    4.people keep donating LARGE SUMS to GYE  that wasn't so much how we got here, as how we will get "there..."
