I've almost finished redesigning the gridcoin website, and I need input/opinions on the site.
Version 1: Bugs: 1. Alignment of text throughout site. Design changes: 1. Look into changing the background colour of the sub-header & how the change will affect the other pages (hero-tab might look bad). Content to create: 1. Need linux&mac guides for cpu/scrypt mining and installation of boinc.
Changes: (13/07/14) 1. IRC now points to kiwi irc chat. Now users don't need to install mirc to access the channel. 2. Updated the spacing of the sections on the front page. 3. Fixed the height glitch on the BOINC success stories section. 4. Added in social media links that should appear on the left (maybe in a day or two). 5. Created thorough linux compiling guides for gridcoin, gridcoin-qt and more! 6. The reddit tip bot is up and running in beta phase - expect issues, but give it a bash! www.reddit.com/r/gridcointipbot for more info. 7. Fixed swisscex's logo - now showing the authentic logo they provided What's next with the website? 1. Reddit tip bot's wiki for new users. 2. Reddit /r/gridcoin wiki 3. Media section for gridcoin (where we've been mentioned (articles), and videos that users have created). 4. Events section.
Version 2 Plans: ARIA support (Blind support) Translation support (french first, then others - anyone able to help with translation?). Making the site MVC/Angularjs/CMS'd. Integrating boinc stats into the site - directly interacting with API's instead of scraping existing boinc stat sites. Integrate reddit tip bot stats onto site.
Things I want to implement:
1. An events page - boinc competitions to create a great gridcoin community & boinc presence.
2. Gridcoin foundation.
Things I need people to do:
Be extremely picky; pick apart the website and give any and all input on what you think could be improved.
Provide any relevant content for the site.
Any kind of graphic/image improvents on the site - especially the background for the contact page.
Someone needs to help me compile a gridcoin/boinc/cryptocurrency terminology guide.
