top of that, in order to enrich the content, someone deeply involved in craft design needs to be employed as a Content Master. Content Quality Control. Quite often some pages were published without spelling mistakes, dead links and wrapped links ( Spool 1997) being picked up by the person responsible. Editorial Power. The amount of information received from each exhibitor was different. For example, some exhibitors did not tell us the weight of their products. It is a lot of work to put all the information on each booth page equally, but the quality of information may affect how the visitors trust the web site, so there is a need to enhance ability and productivity of our editorial work.
As the second stage of the Cyber Messe project, the Paper Prototype Model was developed into the Operational Prototype Model. The structured development procedures we adopted functioned extremely well. From the two month test-run, the following significant conclusions were drawn up.
Even those people who did not display any interest with just the concept or the paper prototype model began showing interest as the web site began to appear.
As a result, while being small, an on-line community which we thought had the potential to grow was established. Some evangelists ( Cohill 1997) came forward by themselves to cooperate with the operation.
Many areas which could only be grasped in a very abstract way with the paper prototype model, for example, what the exhibitors and visitors would be hoping for in detail, the amount of work involved and how much it would cost, the necessary make-up of an effective management team, became clear.
