- Apply Jakob Nielsen's usability guidelines. See also: Web Pages That Suck and Steve Krug's Don't Make Me Think.
- Be specific when telling people what's been updated on your web site. "Website updated" is useless info to most.
- Do not "auto-play" audio on your site. Co-workers don't need to know my plans for SUNDAY! SUNDAY! SUNDAY!
- Provide PDF files for documents that should be printed: registration forms, mailed documents, flyers, etc.
- It isn't the Internet that's killing cons. BlizzCon (a con dedicated to a MMORPG) had 35,000 people attend in '08.
