'Front end' redesign - by this I mean Main page, Community Portal and (I propose) a separate 'welcome page'. Because at least the first 2 of these are perhaps related to 'background style', propose separate redesign pages until a redesign reasonably set up, before replacing 'live' ones. Each section below has a sort of intro / discussion then 'to do' list.

Main page Edit

Main page redesign September 2008 - simplified basic design - welcomes, basic signposting for newbies, at least one, as good as we can get, photo / design thing, maybe rotate 'em

  • Photo of the (month, at first)
  • Gallery signposting to main articles

Community portal Edit

Community portal redesign September 2008 - more about 'news' re wikisocial for wikisocial returners / regulars (signed in's get ad free experience)

Welcome page Edit

Welcome page redesign September 2008 - outlines basic ways of helping - more for newbies / gen ref for returners

Agreed on the 'welcome page' idea. Sort of a brief help and what to do guide, I'm thinking. I have some ideas for this. Anarchyuk (talk)(Contribs) 18:19, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

Images Edit

{more on 'bright and welcoming, but fairly neutral' design) - lots more photos (especially for 'front end'). Good / appropriate photos and images can help brighten up the place enormously. We should welcome them, although obviously we don't want to go so far as people using wikisocial to rival photo collection sites. There may be scope for inviting design people from across wikia - eg Symbolism wikia - to help with designing specific logo / icons for specific wikisocial purposes. (I've got maybe one or two specific things in mind hopefully will get round to creating / uploading soon)

I'll look into getting help from other wikis.
I've spoken to Swannie from Symbolism and logocreation about doing some graphics for the welcome page and he said he would like to, we just need to think what they should look like. He probably wouldn't mind doing more. Anarchyuk (talk)(Contribs) 20:52, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
