In this kind of work, the screenshot is more powerful to give our
opinion than some comments.
I think this mocup has much information in a first browser screen and a
bit difficult to get the informations to need.
Then I re-align some components which you made and put some shots from
I change the logo to Cory K.'s Ideas because I want to put the COF
circle's color as key color.
This is the Grid-Analyzxe.
I put some basic and most needed information in the top. And I put much
text information to bottom. This layout will be good for several kind of
users, both newcomer and elder.
What I mean is not pushing my design but I prefer your mocup to current
ubuntustudio.com design. It's simple and easy to wathch. But there is
not so many information...
If you need my help and work, I have some time to help you till this
weekend. I can uunderstand and use the W3C's specification for (X)HTML,
with drupal if we share the basic source like MySQL data or theme
templates and so on. It'S a pretty sad that I usually use the other engines.
# I'm sorry if this post is duplicated because previous one has an
attached file and the mailserver reject instant post...
