    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.

    If you want to make some comments directly on to the document please PM me your gmail account and I will give you editing permissions.

    Danke.

    I had a good long conversation with a friend of mine who is a great UX usability designer who really liked what Sev was doing. Now he could come in and do his own designs but actually what we realised was that it would be more productive if he worked alongside Sev and the rest of us and just helped to guide the process.

    He gave some great feedback on research that he has been reading about the use of sliders for example that I want to share with you. I am thinking of making a video about it so that it isn’t so typey. You know what I mean?

    I am impressed. Proposals from 1 guy with sharp vision 🙂
    I like the [s]first[/s] third out of [s]four[/s] six.

    So many good artwork designs here, Awesome! They stay better, when I’m not trying to comment those with my poor artist visions 😃

    But some comment about future contents. In update focus that web site contents can serve two important user group:

    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.

    Well, that first one with the tiles looks like something that I would really, really enjoy as the mobile version of the website. Not sure if there was going to be a mobile version of it, but this would be perfect in my humble opinion.

    I also really like that slick dark one, it’s stylish and easy to look at…

    Great designs, time to shake out some Rep 🙂

    I agree, I’ve added that to “possible requirements / enhancement ideas” so the designers can consider it as an option.

    Maybe the “mobile site!” is a design specification on its own? and potential for additional innovative features in the future.


  • Regular Member | Tip Pryderi

    Woop, this gets me excited! ::)

    I think the circuitry designs send out the wrong message. You need an inclusive design that suits the theme of friendly community and doesn’t scream ‘geeks’ or ‘hackers’. Bright, clean and clear white but with bold splashes of slightly softened primary colours, hinting at friendliness. Its important IMO that people feel safe, the design is a huge part of that.

    Yes one of the requirements should be that it is responsive design.

    Kevlar has a point when he says that our opening line states what we are in the negative:

    [center][i]Feathercoin is an Internet currency [b]not[/b] controlled by any central bank or institution[/i][/center]

    What do people feel about this instead:

    [center][i]Feathercoin is an Internet currency [b]free from[/b] any central bank or institution[/i]

    [i]Feathercoin is an Internet currency [b]independent of[/b] any central bank or institution[/i]
    [/center]

    Also what about the word [i]authority[/i] does that belong in there instead of institution?

    [/quote]I would say that in order to incite, so you probably want to stick with institution.

    Institution is much more vague referring to governments, reserves, banks and private money systems.

    If there would be a voting, I’d vote for the above and stick with institution.

    Also may be it’s worth to use ‘decentralized’ like

    Feathercoin is an Internet currency based on a decentralized infrastructure and [b]independent of[/b] any central bank or institution

    Fair point and I think you’re right about the colours. Also the use of rounded fonts give a soft, caring feel to it.

    Yeah once we choose a theme, we can develop the responsive version designs as well.
