Page goal

I think the functions should be limited to:

1. Orient visitors, as a large fraction of them enter by this page (bookmarkability). We separate between newcomers, users and developers, so 3 boxes here.

2. Announce news and upcoming events. One box.

Design notes

Please try to keep these elements in the top part of the screen (above the fold): Page title, motto, welcome statement, objective project definition, product picture, search box (not there yet !).

Please try to keep also on the page (not necessarily above the fold): links to other official information sources (trac, mailing lists, etc.), language chooser, more elaborated mission statement (historical overview), philosophical position, top level navigation within the wiki.

2007.2 link

In the software categories The link to the 2007.2 distribution goes to a picture of the software stack. That is not very appealing. Maybe this link should point to a software description (as the link to ASU, FSO, Qtopia does).

Thanks for pointing this out! I changed the link. --Galadh 22:23, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

Nav Bar on left

The Nav bar on the left is out of date, incorrect and has duplications.

Software is linked to a Developers page? There are two community links/ There is a Press Coverage on the left and in the new part What exactly is Technical, the whole site is technical.

There are many more items that make the nav bar on the left confusing, unproductive, incorrect and it needs to be fixed or wacked. Brenda seems to be attached to it or afraid to change it as this has come up before and all we got were lame excuses as to why it is like it is.

Please change it or remove it.

Translations

The continuous updating of pages result as an impossible-to-solve game to people who likes to localize wikie's pages.

Also, people visiting the site, may find outdated pages, thinking the project is dead or not so alive.

Please, consider to use a translation friendly wiki like anwiki (www.anwiki.com) used for build Ulteo's site (www.ulteo.com).

Alternatively, you can consider to find a way to comunicate to guests and translators if a page is outdated or not and put a link to the right english page.

Thank you and excuse my poor english: I can assure you I speak a more correct italian ;)
