ASME Community Platform to Be Sunset
Mar 23, 2022
ASME values the contributions of our members and volunteers to our codes and standards, events, programs, and publications, and takes your information security seriously. ASME staff is evaluating and evolving our technology platforms to safeguard our constituents' security and move towards more modern technology to facilitate effective collaboration. Therefore, on March 28, 2022, ASME will be sunsetting our eight-year-old ASME Community platform. Platform use has decreased by over 70% from its peak years. In addition, the system does not meet today’s benchmarks for functionality or information security and is no longer supported by its original developers.
Some large public groups that used the ASME Community as their primary outward communication tool will be moved to ASME.org. You'll be notified directly with more details if your group is affected. Sections and Student Sections will be using the new portal sections.asme.org which will provide resources and information to their constituents.
We recognize that technology system changes may inconvenience some users for a limited time, but ASME staff will continue to look for enhancements to our technology ecosystem and provide you with guidance on how to better use social media platforms and other ways to communicate and collaborate. If you have any questions about the transition, please contact us at ASMECommunity@asme.org.
ASME Membership (1 year) has been added to your cart.
The price of yearly membership depends on a number of factors, so final price will be calculated during checkout.
Matt Cutts, a software engineer and former head of the web spam team at Google, stated back in 2012 that "spammy directories" are disregarded while those who "excercise editorial discretion" worth it.
Even though countless business directories litter the internet, they won't all offer a positive change. Don't take unneeded risks and suggest your website to one that Google loves!
