  1. We're using the AYN sites, with good results so far. We like the revenue positive model, as we're receiving some funds from it. Even though there are ads on the site, we're getting a portion of the proceeds from them which is a plus for our Region. With our previous Clubspaces sites, we were ad-sponsored, but we received nothing for it.

    The folks at AYN have just upgraded the calendar function, which is rather similar to the old Clubspaces calendar. Since I was familiar with the old one, this is rather easy for me to pick up.

    Also, AYN developed a mobile app for our site, with our information on it. It seems to work rather well, although linking to the not mobile friendly eAYSO website is of rather limited utility. Maybe if I had a phablet it would work better, but on my old Android most of the app works well. It's available for Android and iPhone.

    The sites are based on Word Press which is very popular for websites and blogs. These sites also have many plug-ins that allow you do more things with them. I've just installed a SEO plug in on our site, and am excited to see what it might do for us.

    Generally, we're happy with our new site, and I would recommend it to Regions who are budget and technology limited.
