    A global Internet currency with everyday purchasing applications, independent of any bank or institution.
    [url=http://i.imgur.com/S0ij3zK.jpg]http://i.imgur.com/S0ij3zK.jpg[/url]
    The front page needs will further change (as the membership expands) , how can we make it easy to update?

    [b]Extended Search with, [/b]
    MetaData to Categorise forum data
    Ability of members to Categorise Pages.
    Search the forum on * (anything) but in order of views or of number of thread replies,
    or Search in order of the amount of Rep contributes have. for instance.

    [b]A banner with X major news items[/b]
    Show the Top ideas from “Your ideas for Feathercoin” in the “Banner” or dynamically on the “News” page

    [b]Have a “Dynamic News” Page.[/b]

    [b]Add Feathercoin Address to Website[/b]

    [b]Add “Listen to Feathercoin” to website[/b]

    [b]Talk to coinplorer about adding some Feathercoin specific graphs, membership, block time accuracy, etc and point to them / use them in tools…[/b]

    [b]Internally develop more Feathercoin specific charts for Tools [/b]

    [b]Email Notification Settings.[/b] Like subscribing to the Newsletter or just wanting to receive emails when new software releases become available.

    [b]Friends list where you could subscribe to feeds from people that you want to follow[/b] and a better notification system.

    [b]The ability to tag threads would also be good.[/b]

    [b]A user specific web / home page.[/b]

    1. Merchants and other business users. Answer questions what they might have: What is this?, why should I accept?, etc. And site can help them to find tools and instructions they need to use this.

    2. Basic home users. Answer their possible questions. What is this?, how can I send this to friend?, how can I buy something?, etc. And site should serve also for them to find different wallets + other necessary tools + guides.

    [b]Mobile Phone & Non English language Feathercoin v3 web sites versions and start pages.[/b]
    Need a separate design project for the “Smart phone web site”. Perhaps even the “3rd world facilities web site”
    [b] Add reputation in prioritising Twitter bot posts [/b]


  • Moderators

    [b]Any ideas, or opinions, I’ll add them to the main document for the moment.
    [/b]

    I have taken over Wellenreiter 2nd post, for the proposed or forum possible enhancements, ready for prioritising later. As the Main thread is getting too long.

    Each area, like the main page should be going ahead as its own thread. The members are helping with getting Github started to store and change control work and invite collaborators.

    For instance, example or other prototype ideas for the front page need more space to develop ideas…



  • Just thought about an everyday increasing overview about all areas Feathercoins are used already. Could grow in future with search functionality to check by categories, ratings by forum members, ads and random suggestions.

    Maybe some cool graphs showing the increasing FTC influence in the world - along with the detailed parts would be interesting too.

    Thought about it today, as currently a lot of interesting things appear and are distributed in the forum.

    This new section could become a center of visible Feathercoin innovations.

    Link integration?


  • Moderators

    Summery of iawgoM web site comments.

    [b]Current situation:[/b]
    1. Landing page is simple, maybe too simple?
    2. Forum is actually not integral part of website atm
    3. Market has design of its own
    4. Chatbox â€" stands for itself also
    5. New Members ask the same questions -already answered in guides & tutorials

    [b]Landing page[/b]
    Everything available at first sight, so the content should be something like:
    o Banner rotator which contains some of topics below
    o What is FeatherCoin â€" short intro with „more“ option…
    o How much is it worth? â€" Integrate live BTC/USD/EUR price ticker somewhere in header?
    o I want to mine it â€" how do I do that? Click on a link and you will be taken to „Getting started“ page where should be some of tutorials that we already have (update them with latest info, eg. Latest versions of cgminer are CPU only?)

    o How much will I earn? Again, link to profitability calculator, maybe even include a list of GPUs and average hashrates to calculator?
    o Footer â€" latest Tweets widget - chrisj is doing awesome job with that - everyone should be aware of that and follow us
    o Facebook feed?
    o Latest on Forum…?
    o Featured market products? (this is a must if you ask me)
    o Latest blog topics?
    o How do I exchange my FTC for other currencies?
    Advertising space for exchanges with a disclaimer?

    [b]Technical Comments[/b]
    • We will most likely buy some template which will be ripped apart and customized for us as it really doesn’t make much sense to develop new template from scratch â€" it would take months
    • Forum â€" we should stick to current SMF, I’ve seen there were some bridges available so it probably can be integrated into WordPress
    • Chatbox â€" integrate it as subpage
    • Market â€" with some CSS pimping, probably can look like the rest of the site

    [b]summery - Pyxis comments on Web development[/b]

    Design wise lets go google on it and Keep it simple.

    I do like the idea of a banner rotator as we have a ton of information to get across,
    no text, lets use video, images & info graphics in the banner, but we need to do this without it taking years to load.
    Banner rotator with 3 or 4 things max, 3 permanent and 1 weekly/monthly updated banner.

    Item 1 What is Feathercoin Video
    Item 2 Get a Wallet (this is everyones first step, it has to be here)
    Item 3 Get Feathercoins in your wallet and spend them, swap them, etc them
    Temp Item (Chrisj’s weekly newsletter)

    A point, new members how to make them work stuff out for themselves?.

    [b]Work by mnstrcck on web site ideas…[/b]

    [url=http://i.imgur.com/QXOyxir.jpg]http://i.imgur.com/QXOyxir.jpg[/url]

    Very rough - colours are not there, but I like to use the front page as a simple gateway - use the slider frames to communicate, have the client download link there.

    We can break that bottom portion into two - download links + social media portal.

    Another idea I had was to implement a slide up or down Stats Bar [about 20px high] with live updating stats such as [Diff. / Global Hashrate / Coin Prices / Coins Mined]

    I’d have to see what FB + Twitter offer in terms of API and customization, but it might be nice to have a micro hub somewhere, even in the footer.

    Oh, and finally - no idea what to do for our header/logo.

    I can upload PSD if anyone likes - it might be easier to tear it apart.

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    I did some tweaking today:

    [url=http://i.imgur.com/S0ij3zK.jpg]http://i.imgur.com/S0ij3zK.jpg[/url]

    • Menu moved to top so that it can be seen on every page in same spot [we have room on it for Social Media icons and maybe Feathercoin Icon + Name but…]
    • Portion between Menu and Carousel needs some content. Could also be used for FTC Logo + Feathercoin + Social Media
    • Carousel window enlarged for more content.
    • Space underneath split into two: CALL TO ACTION ON DOWNLOAD + KEY STATS [I will think about making these look prettier]
    • Footer extended to full width and - check it out - live stats! This would be awesome and I think we can easily implement it!

    Header and Footer always present on each page and visible - all other content within it.

    Next up I will think about how the pages inside work. I’m thinking two columns for About + Get Started with Left Column as Menu that opens Right Column articles.

    Thoughts?

    Finally, I have made the two PSD files available here -

    Can we not describe Feathercoin on the front page in terms of what it isn’t? ( I know, the irony… )

    Well technically it doesn’t. It says that Feathercoin [i]is[/i] an internet currency. What it isn’t is a currency that is controlled by a central bank. But I agree ;)

    How about: A global Internet currency independent of any bank or institution."



  • I like mnstrcck’s ideas, as he said its just needs colour.

    For a newbie, that kind of implies its sole purpose is for internet purchasing

    what about something like: A global Internet currency with everyday purchasing applications, independent of any bank or institution.

    Done a couple of updates, this is just brainstorming remember…

    [b]Summery of lizhi’s ideas[/b]

    Related resources link is very important. eg: Trading website, Mining Pool, business link ,related electronic manual,Pictures and videos. This is a huge amount of work. :)

    Maybe Chinese page, cn.feathercoin.com . ;)

    [b]Summery of Wrapper’s ideas[/b]

    [url=http://forum.feathercoin.com/index.php/topic,5143.msg38287.html#msg38287]http://forum.feathercoin.com/index.php/topic,5143.msg38287.html#msg38287[/url]

    This discussion is relevent, web site modes of failure discusion.

    Now Feathercoin is becoming popular, we are starting to get over run by support requests. This could result in manual DDoS.

    1. Simplify Wallet install
    2. Simplify Download page - Downloads should be more prominent
    3. Warn people not to download the beta test version unless they know what they are doing! Don’t confuse the versions
    4. Put a separate download link prominently on the Forum.
    5. Do not release until very high confidence everything is fine.
    6. Find ways to encourage more support staff volunteers…
    7. Improve guides section for absolute newbies
    8. Forum newbie help effectiveness analysis by testing new users (at meet-ups)
    9. Encourageing or facilitating more physical meet-ups and face to face training of initiators / helpers.

    10. Edit the forum help to "Forum rules / requirements
    11. Add an A.I. chatbot that uses old forum posts to answer questions about Feathercoin.

    An “FTC” icon, to use in Pool graphs and by other related web sites as … fontawesome BTC icon.

    Extra functionality for members who hold a block chain, ie graphs of hash rate (Calculated from the Block Chain)

    A Donations monitoring system such that it is easy to see how much a charity, or Kickstarter had given and where the funds go to …

    A Site index page, auto generated?

    Added:

    [b]Ability of members to Categorise Pages.[/b]
    (Note this is done by [Solved] and that could be extended.)

    Note that this idea has been implemented by moderators or posters to change the header to reflect the outcome.

    This is a case where training the membership is impossible so has ended as a job for moderators.

    I know from what they say and their actions that Peter, Chris and myself want the members to operate the forum, if possible, automatically.

    With the least necessity for moderation. ( I will add that to the specification as well) so automating the moderator categorisation would be double positive.


  • Moderators

    Change the name of the Feathercoin forum’s to:

    [b]The Feathercoin, Research and Development, Office and Training forum. [/b]

    We could have a “Pub” for adults only (which is not permanently recorded).
