[DEV] Feathercoin Web Site Development & Artwork


  • Moderators | Tip wrapper

    How what do members need to have temporary web host servers to try the website out? or make some tweeks,

    Is it only Online? if so is there a cheap way to do that or recommended web hoster?

    or could we run a local version from home computer.

    I for instance, don’t want to maintain the site but I could invent cool charts, given the graphing tools / training.

    All right, I’ve drawn out a few more website themes. Check them out on the attachments.

    I’ll see if I can come up with some more. I think I need to design a theme that has either a more ‘communal’ or DIY/hobbyist feel to it.

    Hmmm…interesting Severino 🙂 +1 rep for those. I like the idea of first and last one…something we might use.

    That last one looks so dramatic with the circuit board.

    Hahah, because mining is dramatic? 😛

    Anyway, let me know if you need a hand with designing stuff like icons.

    I think we need to plan what will be the most important info to put on the homepage, in order of importance. For now all the info I’ve put on those wireframes are just examples. We can rearrange and add stuff.

    Also do you think we need to put in point (or with icons) the main features of FeatherCoin and what makes it unique? When someone visits the site, they’re going to want to know straight away what it is.

    Big thanks from the community. We appreciate you.

    Nice work, Severino. I liked the idea of the slider, but being auto generated somehow. Wireframe 5 is dramatic.

    I would like to see:

    The next step is to have a way that these web designs can be prototyped and demonstrated quickly (to the members).

    I don’t want to make a big thing of voting, I look at that as popularity, not law.

    It is obvious to me that, in a volunteer environment, the person doing the actual donkey work gets the last word on the work. I see that as the main reward for leading the work, a measure of artistic control.

    But, it looks like we could easily have a 3 design ideas to chosen to mock up, to vote on, as a general look and direction?

    The idea is to get some input from members which design they like and buy in to the process. This will also help to encourage, design and enable ways for more member input into Feathercoin projects. Its not essential, members can comment in the forum.

    That template looks really good to me, I like the direction the new site is going in.

    Heard about the upcoming website developments from Chrisj’s interview. Decided to see where this was hiding and eventually found it! Looking nice, Looking nice! I was really impressed with the way wireframe5.jpg looks as a theme.

    Thanks for support and rep points guys.

    Any idea what is the quickest way to do this? I think there’s a way to make .pdfs interactive. So I haven’t gone into the site structure/information architecture - just the visual theme of the website for now.

    Maybe we need to make a diagram of the site map. Also does the current Feathercoin website use Google analytics? If so, we can take a look at the user flow and see what are the most popular links or pages. We can maybe use that to decide which part of the website should be prioritised?

    I’ve attached a new, more electronic and code-styled website theme. I’m experimenting with various related visual elements that could work. I’m trying to go for that more DIY and Arduino style to it, but it’s tricky.

    Hey guys, is there any artwork you could point me toward? Namely, a vector version of the logo.


  • | Tip 555

    Perfect, cheers.

    The forum search facility is very primitive.

    I would like to search on * (anything) but in order of views or of number of thread replies, the amount of Rep contributers have. for instance.

    It’s terrible. It’s the same on Bitcointalk. As well as the homepage we also need to work out the functionality that we want from the forum and then we can kind it inline with the designs. I don’t just mean the functionality you have mentioned, I want to hear what other people want from it too.

    Great. +Rep

    +1REP Severino, i like the site of the new website.


  • | Tip thectspot

    I like the wireframe #3. Everything is easy to get to and you don’t have to do a lot of scrolling. Whatever the website redesign is, you want to make it accessible as possibly and fast as possible to load for people going to it. Also want to make sure that it is Mobile friendly.

    For convenience I have laid out Sev’s design’s on a Google Doc drawing board.
