Site is looking GREAT rbistolfi and M-ake!

I have two suggestions so far....

Screenshots in CD store are not true to the product that is for sale.  This could cause issues.

Left nav with Top nav are identical. Consider choosing one or the other, or linking different content?

Hate saying anything at all...  please don't be offended.  Just some "Brotherly" input. Smiley

The graphics made for the new website. You may use these within VL community for VL specific needs.

just one more thing- how about a FORUM link in the navigation here:
http://vector2.ecosq.com/

or a big fat "forum" button somewhere there.Its really important to have one


I really like the new look,both of the site and vector's desktop design.I think that vec made great leaps in its design since previous versions.

With VL6 now using a dark theme I suggest we should update the VL site color scheme to something more a-like.
Mockup:

The banner is unfinished.
Just a suggestion....what say you?

I like it very much. 
Btw, I think it's good to have our website theme in consonance with our default desktop. 
It shows community dynamism .

Great job M-ake!

No, no, no, no, no, no, no!!!

I HATE dark backgrounds with white text. It's hard to read. I'll often leave light-on-dark Web sites because I can't stand to look at them.

There seems to some sort of love affair between some Linux users and black/dark backagrounds. I'm constantly seeing these things posted as screen shots of someone's desktop and on Linux backgrounds sites. Fortunately, we have lots of choices. I do like the VL 6 Deluxe background (the lighter version), but I'd never call it a dark background.

I know quite a few people who don't like dark backgrounds on Web pages. Others do like them, but I don't think we should have a Web site that some find a turnoff.

So how about putting the banner logo on black then keep the white lettered black tabs and a black strip along the top of the tabbed page and use a lighter color or pattern for the actual page with black text..choose a color or pattern that is in keeping with the nice graphics and blue list near the bottom....did not think my idea of the page would look good on the opera photo page where I put screenshots so just discribing..it may satisfy grannygeeks desire while keep the dark logo design which suits the new look of the desktop..or maby not ...just a penny

cheers

It's not about what do we personally like, it's about what we think will give a better look to vl website.

In fact, the design I love most, is the one from http://www.iolanguage.com/ , but I know it's not suitable for any commercial thing, because the rest of the world does not think the same way as me.

Overall, I think theese are good designs.  Obviously, if readability has issues (and that's a good point, granny), we have to make sure everything is ok in the final version.

overthere,

I'm sorry to say that I think that one is worse than M-ake's. The reason is that it's even harder to read because there is not enough contrast between the text and the background.

I applaud that you're making an effort and I applaud everyone who is trying to improve the VL site. But I just don't like the direction this is going in.

I agree. My criticism is precisely that many people don't like dark backgrounds. What I don't want to happen is that someone would be turned off as soon as they laid eyes on the VL site and worst of all, that they'd leave without reading about our wonderful distro. Someone who loves dark backgrounds may think "ho-hum" at first glance, but I don't think they'd leave without reading what's there.

I don't like the banner on the proposed new page at all, but I realize this isn't the final version. I'm not happy with the banner on the current page either. It doesn't use the type style of the VL logo, having "Discover the Difference" reflected is excessive, and the horizontal lines are distracting and busy. I loved the banner we had on the page before the current one. It was elegant and beautiful. Our banner should incorporate our logo for brand identity. I'd be happy with something taken from the VL-Gridwave3 wallpaper or the VL-DLX61 wallpaper (leaving out the "Deluxe").

I don't mean to be too critical. I appreciate everyone's efforts and am sorry I don't have the artistic talent to contribute. I think we all want an attractive page that visitors will want to read.
