Not mine, but skull88!

I think we should ask skull88 for public domain confirmation just to be on the safe side.

Here's what I'm thinking:




I swiped the layout and some other parts from another site however I'm working on composing a separate post and don't wish to share that URL just yet.

That looks too "commercial" to me. People will probably think that Bitcoin is run by a business from looking at that. I prefer the simple layout.

I don't see a problem with it looking too "commercial." I would rather NOT see something that looks like somebody's kid threw it together in 10 minutes from their parents' basement. This means, among other things, styling the main page, the wiki, the forum, and whatever else, all to match.

People love websites like this, I'm sure anybody who isn't a follower of RMS thinks this is cool.

...

Sorry, I don't care for it. Too convoluted. Dobry Den's version draws the eye to the relevant information and (if the download links are moved to top) has them grouped naturally. With this design, if I'm trying to read the info for consumers, my eye is being constantly drawn over to the merchant column. At a glance this tells me nothing, that's not a good thing.

Selling out to advertisers shows you respect neither yourself nor the rest of us.

Nope, didn't like it really.

1) First impression is a mess
2) Second impression is "typical business".
3) I think we want Bitcoin idea to be more independent, opensource & p2p - related than business-related (i may be wrong there though).

I prefer #2 of the original poster's layouts. Don't really care for the second poster's layouts, as it is very filled with information, but doesn't really say anything. Most people like that layout when they are looking at a business that they want to buy from, but Bitcoin isn't a business - it's a way of life.

I like this. The logo could be different though. We could get some professional to finish the visual appearance for the wanted layout.

The current plan is indeed to keep the main page and wiki separate. The main page should be an advertisement to newbies, while the wiki contains all the details. JesusTheCaffeine's idea of explaining the benefits for consumers and merchants is good, but maybe not on the front page if it's too much text.

Cut the two Windows downloads to a single installer download. There's little reason to have a .exe and a .zip.

It would be good to have the "big 3" all on one place, and then a link to a page with all other versions on it. You could call the .zip file a "portable" version since you don't have to install it.

This is a perfect design. I was going to get around to doing this, but you've already done the job.

The flow is perfect. From top to bottom:
- What is Bitcoin.
- Where to get it.
- Now what to do with it.

Any new person will be interested in those topics. I vote this for the new front page design.

Nice. Simple. Uncluttered. Concise.

Couldn't be better.

Add this:


And remove the drop shadow for the coin. It's inconsistent with your plain flat colouring on the rest of the page.

I like the alignment, although I'm not sure about the download buttons. Having all 4 there is claustrophobic. Maybe better to get rid of the left Windows button and replace it with some javascript that expands the blue bar to offer the 2 windows download urls below when clicked.

Soon there will be both 32bit and 64 bit Linux versions, and you can't just keep adding more buttons!

If there's no javascript enabled then the page will simply offer the links straight up.

[Windows] [Mac OS X] [Linux]

Windows expands the bar to show below:

- Windows Exe (Recommended)
- Windows Zip

Mac OS X is a normal URL.

Linux expands to:
- Linux (Recommended)
- Linux 64bit
- Debian package

Agreed.  It should not be too flashy nor too advocating.


PS.  I don't like the "virtual" adjective in the subtitle "P2P virtual currency".  I"d prefer "P2P digital currency"

I don't know if you all are familiar, but I think distributed.net's page is concise (but reports a lot of old news, sadly).

lol... this is why hackers make poor designers. We think differently to usual people.

Usual people like sites like yahoo.com , use MSN messenger, have a facebook

Me- I go on IRC and use email.

So I sometimes have trouble when designing interfaces for general use because I start thinking about what *I* would like. I reckon many of you have the same problem but aren't mindful of it.
