    Also when it comes to using sliders we need to be careful, check this out

    Sometimes good information hierarchy goes a long way.

    I don’t agree with the reasoning in this link especially in our case. A store trying to sell a product relies on screen real-estate and sliders could be considered a waste of that space. Missing sales etc.

    Where we differ is we are trying to tell a story via info graphics and some visual cues. There is no click through requirement, just a visual concept to show and tell. A good slider can be used like a story board to get a point across.

    Another bonus is more more information can be conveyed in the same space. Learn to mine, what is FTC, we have a marketplace, the video, ideals/community and advertise this weeks news letter for example… have whatever you want.

    Disability issues imho are not a factor if links and content are represented elsewhere on the page.

    [quote]But if you can create an engaging slider that tells the story of your organization, you might be on to something.

    I think we have the perfect case to tell a story.

    Peter Blatchford has told me he has a new job on Monday so we will need to make a decision soon. He is doing a lighter variation on Severino. If you come back with something and we feel strongly that it’s a close run thing I will just make it right with Peter and then we can make a decision after he moves on.

    Are you coming to the meet?


  • Regular Member | Tip Entimp

    Can’t make it… job hunting n all that crap. Sorry. Really wanted to.

    Not sure what you mean on the theme? Sounds like it is already being done and decided on? Is there any point in me wasting my time? Will halt theming the ftcreboot site until you can tell me.


  • Regular Member | Tip chrisj

    Entimp and I just had a phone call to make sure we understood each other and he and Pete Blatchford are now both talking on email to make sure their work doesn’t overlap.

    If anyone has any feedback please say.


  • Regular Member | Tip Entimp

    I did a clean install of the site this morning too. So if anyone who had admin access who needs it please let me know.

    The site can be viewed as work progresses too. http://future.do/ftcreboot/

    For a quick win, please can someone change the date in the footer on the current site from 2013 to 2014. First impressions count! 😉

    [/quote]I used to be able to change things like that, Bush must have secured the forums since the attack. I think only he can change that now. I have PM’ed him.

    Superb - I am really excited the ongoing web development will be brilliant …

    Thanks! Maybe it could be done on http://feathercoin.com/ too? 😎

    I already put this on the Ideas page, but I’ll repeat it here.

    Section: “What can I do with feathercoin”.

    There needs to be a place where all the web applications are listed, not just places you can use it as a currency to buy stuff. I’m looking at applications like feather tipper and those are the real uses of a virtual currency where it is at home.

    This needs to be very visible and on top of things.

    Other way is to have some space where there’s these rolling “Did you know?”- flashes that roll out the interesting facts about Feathercoin that could mean something in a “first impression” situation. Later maybe even some semantic stuff.

    Other idea “What do you want to know about feathercoin?”, where questions are answered and approved by the community and made by those just arrived. This needs to be without any kind of registrations and newb areas.

    Just a polite heads up, I’m pulling out of all and any dev for the new site.

    If anyone needs access to the ftcreboot site give Chrisj a shout.

    Good luck with it.

    Hi all,
    I just wonder if you plan to translate the page to several languages.
    In my point of view it can help to attract the attention of new people.

    That’s a great idea. I was supposed to meet with Pete Blatchford (@555) today, I am now meeting him tomorrow. I have made sure that @entimp’s points about shortcodes etc have been included in Pete’s implementation and I have noted other comments on here also. Pete’s just not been willing to show his work until he is happy with it but I have seen it and I like where he is taking it; he has really understood Sev’s vision and implemented it faithfully.

    New web site : Enhancements Bugs

    Issue: There is no way back from the forum, the Feathercoin Button should do that, but returns to forum.

    Note, we need the Github set up for webSite issues, and once we are up and running, I will replace this thread [Development] Thread with a pinned web site “Support thread.”
