Well, this didn't happen quite this way, but it did happen. There were a lot of things that we wanted to do that we just didn't have time to make happen. Thus, 'phase 2' was born - and it immediately became a dumping ground for every idea that we either didn't want to deal with or didn't want to do at all in 'phase 1'.
So now that 'phase 1' is done, people are starting to ask about 'phase 2'. But remember all the stuff we were supposed to be doing as part of our real jobs that we put off so we could work on the home page? Well, we had to do that stuff some time, and that's what we're doing now instead of 'phase 2'.
Some people have gotten the idea of 'perpetual redesign' in their minds, but don't seem to understand that we all had full time jobs before the redesign came along. Of course, we're partly to blame by eagerly dumping every crappy idea that cam along into the 'phase 2' bucket. Right now, we are all doing our best to ignore as much 'phase 2' stuff as we can, but sooner or later we'll have to fess up and admit that we never intended to do 99% of what ended up in 'phase 2' ever.
