Well they won't win any awards, but I have just grabbed the BitcoinQuickStart title text and made:

I've put a link to this guide on the multibit.org landing page as I think it is pretty good.
(Bottom right of multibit.org/index.html )

Would be nice to have a medium sized "BitcoinQuickStart.com" icon to use for the link as it is somewhat swamped by the LoveBitcoins.org one next to it.

Do newbies need a quick start?

No, they don't. Newbies don't need a quick start unless they're interested in selling or buying drugs or something. These are urgent needs that demand an anonymous payment. Can you tell me why they should replace dollars and credit cards with bitcoin at this stage taking safety, conveniences and transaction fees into consideration?

Maybe the most sincere design is to show them how to buy and sell bitcoins as ordinary commodity and earn some dollars.

Frankly I don't expect to see a large number of newbies hyped into bitcoin circle with nothing gained after a long period of anxiety and expectation in vain. I'm not being rude, but being practical and sincere Smiley

Do newbies need a quick start?

Yes, yes they do.  So they don't need to spend hours looking for good information, reading the stuff they already know over and over again.
Also, this way they can feel that they know enough to get started.

As for the drugs stuff: I am not here to buy drugs.  I am here to invest/speculate in what could become a mayor currency and store of value in the future.  And (with the exception of the syncing/scalability issue) I find, once you are set up, using bitcoins is extremely easy and fun.  Future convenience and safety will only improve as the bitcoin-economy matures.

One more navigation suggestion: As well as a 'Return to Homepage' link at the bottom, have a link to the next section (to allow a nice flow of reading & education) such as: 'Next: What is Mining?'

This is one of the best new bitcoin-related sites in quite a while. Great job!

I'm just playing the role of antagonist Cool. Of course beginners need quick start. I care about the facts concerning the profitability of both beginners and website owners, and optimize the market position in this context.

Since you annouce that "I am here to invest/speculate in what could become a mayor currency and store of value in the future", It can be assumed that you agree that bitcoin is not a currency for the time being, at least not fully-fledged. What is it now if less than 10% or 5% of the bitcoins are in circulation serving as medium of transaction? A sleeping beauty, or a gambling? What do you call bitcoin exchange? I would definitely call it operator of a biggest ponzi scheme if/when more than 50% of all the available coins are actively traded. All the hypers and the exchange stand in one side who make profit by so-called speculation, beginners lose money and bitcoin is dumped.

A grim picture, isn't it?
