Do you think this would be a substantial improvement over the Topical Guide? Granted, it would be more exhaustive, but would it uncover relationships that are not well-understood already? One problem that we've found with bayesian inference is that the vocabulary of Church content is relatively narr...

The economic argument for making the older archives available for free runs counter to current thinking about " long-tail " content, at least from the DN's perspective. And the user experience of being randomly (to the user) presented with a login screen to access some content would be confusing. Th...

I'm intrigued--can you provide some use cases for what you're suggesting? BTW, you might be interested to know that the new search on LDS.org is driven by a commercial Bayesian engine.

As the architect/developer of the original ldschurchnews.com site (and it pains me greatly to see that little has been done to update it), I can tell you that the issues around integrating Church News content with the Gospel Library would not be technical. Anything that undermines the economic value...

One of the challenges of developing a local-unit website for a global Church membership is that so many of the desired features are better met by third-party applications. For example, chriswoodut needs features common to e-mail systems; elsewhere, there are threads asking for mapping, photo directo...

We use Omniture to track web site statistics for LUWS, but these are not broken down by unit, which is why there are no plans to make them available to ward admins.

You are right that some minor enhancements have crept into LUWS over time, although these are rare exceptions. For example, case-sensitive names was actually a result of changes made to the membership database, not LUWS itself. In nearly all cases (bug fixes and Pete's changes are exceptions), makin...
