Re: our website, so big and scrolly

I am not into compromising over the aesthetic design of the website. There should be a design and it should be accepted by the web team, and implemented as such. The current site design is a bastardised version of a design i suggested last year (i was not happy about that then, and i am not happy ab...

Re: our website, so big and scrolly

It is important that the forest site is great looking and fast! One reason for this is that I am currently approaching a number of external organisations who know nothing about forest, all they have to go by is our website. Currently I find this rather embarrassing, and I feel it gives us a bad impr...

Re: our website, so big and scrolly

Post meeting, with milk and joachim (a lovely power user!) I remain in favour of switching to tumblr.

Due to its great usability and simplicty, and also because the timescale mentioned to make drupal good was in the region 6 months.
