Here's an idea.

Still working on it? I'd set it up on bitcoin.org if it's ready. Doesn't need to be a Drupal theme, static pages load better.

I'll pay you 20 BTC for the job Smiley

First of all, all of the designs (with all respect for their makers) are only better than average. No one looks like it should for a Bitcoin official site - stunning, yet simple. If we want to make a really good website, we have to try harder.

We already set up a bounty for animated movie for Bitcoin and it turned out great. Why not set up a bounty to hire a proffesional website designer? I personaly know a few that would do a really good job if paid well Smiley.

Edit: To clarify what "well" means - I guess around 600 - 800 BTC.

I'd like to offer 500 BTC for a really cool website. 250 BTC for semi-cool.

These are my previous sites:

http://genjix.freehostia.com/
http://britcoin.co.uk/

Tell me what you mean by 'really cool'. Does my style fit that category? Because it usually takes a lot of work to design a professional looking site.

Probably for a Bitcoin website we'd make pixel art + some mascots.

genjix: Your websites look fine, but for "average joe" this is not the right direction for design. A design for mass audience (which is what we are aiming for in the end) should be clean, easy on the eyes, with some easy to understand image concepts. It should have nice graphics, but not too heavy so it'll load quick on slower ISPs and older browsers. Like you said, it's not a thing you can do overnight - its a process that needs professional software, skills and experience in design. That's why I think we should hire someone that has it all and pay him to do this, instead of hacking something ourselves.

Bounty campaign or fundraiser sounds good. I created a bounty specification page on the wiki. Please contribute if you have good ideas.

Should we put the "Trade" and "FAQ" links to the front page content instead of navigation menu? Should we have the contact details on the front page, so we'd only need 1 page?

Should we have a news section? I'd say no and keep bitcoin.org as a simple introductory page for newbies. Regular users can find news elsewhere.

Goverment websites are overpriced big time, web agencies are sucking as much as they can from them, because govs are clueless about this market. A solid website design (frontpage + 1-2 pages, no coding, just the PSD) can cost around $500 - $1000, so I guess that's not much for a community like this.

Drupal is useful mostly for translations, but if some other system can handle them, it's ok too. Some easy way to generate static or well cached pages would rock.

Tell me what you mean by 'really cool'.

Flattr, Mozilla and Dialogix for example. Or any site from here. Bitcoin.org is the most visible part of the project, so why settle for the second best? Smiley

Does it really need to be Drupal at all? Drupal is great for what it does well, but it's a huge, monstrous hog which is serious overkill for most sites on which it's used.

... but I would like to open up discussion of content.  I'd like to see the bitcoin.org home page to be less about bitcoin-the-software and more about bitcoin-the-currency.

You don't have to download and run any software to run bitcoin, and I think most non-technies are better off using an online wallet service rather than running bitcoin.exe.  So I'd like to see the DOWNLOAD/HOWTO sections moved to a separate page, and have the home page have links to there and to a Wiki page that lists the online wallet services (and starts with a little discussion of the tradeoffs of using an online wallet provider instead of running bitcoin yourself).

It sounds to me that the home page should look something like this: http://www.weusecoins.com/

How is WeUseCoins different than how the intended bitcoin.org homepage will look/behave? It seems to me that what separates bitcoin.org from WeUseCoins is that bitcoin.org is the place to discuss bitcoin stuff with the community (wiki/forum/IRC) and also to download the program. So if those two things are on secondary pages.... i think you can really just copy what WeUseCoins did for the homepage if that's the goal. It's simple, looks professional and easy to understand. (And the video is awesome!)

First of all, all of the designs (with all respect for their makers) are only better than average.

Thank you!.. i'll take better than average Smiley
I am a full time designer/drupal themer and I made the designs in this thread over night (the chance to help bitcoiners was irresistible). So, If anyone wants me to elaborate on my current designs, or go a completely new direction-- I am definitely willing if paid.

Yeah, weusecoins.com does a great job as an introductory site. Bitcoin.it is a good community portal and knowledge base. So what should bitcoin.org be? Since bitcoin.org is the number one search result, there should be at least some introductory stuff and downloads. "Less software and more currency" sounds good. We could translate it to as many languages as possible.

Why not make the wiki the front page?

I could even put that weusecoins as a huge banner on there.
