Firstly to Nick, we’re struggling to figure out how to access the admin account for the new domain, we’ve tried visiting cpanel.gmfoodforum.net and gmfoodforum.net/cpanel but neither seem to work. If you could point us in the right direction with this that would be great.
To address Charlie’s points:
- We have a colleague working on a potential logo idea, although we lack experience and tools for the task, so it might be worth hiring someone on a site like fiverr.com if you are after something a little more professional. We will send the logo we’re working on at the moment over once it’s done though.
- As we previously discussed, creating a place for the food action plan which would be easily accessible/editable by many people would be difficult to do on the main site without requiring some sort of administrator to allow people access, so perhaps it would work better on discourse as you say. We’re happy to meet with Tom to discuss it further, the details of how exactly he wants it to work are still a little vague at the moment.
I’ll email Tom and ask; might morning of Tuesday 29th be any good for you if he’s free?
- Moving the key collaborators to the main page is a simple enough change to make, so we’ll get that done ASAP. We mostly put those categories as suggestions/placeholders, so we’re happy to change them to something more suitable or get rid of them altogether, whichever makes sense to you two. If there is a way of splitting the remaining organisations into categories then we can think of a way to present that nicely.
I’ll ponder this before we meet. I also wondered if the shorter mission statement could perhaps replace the Latin bumf in the middle of the landing page?
We’ve updated the site to point to the forum now from the top bar, as well as updated the forum navigation bar to have the same options as the main site. Are you happy with this as a means for pointing back to the main site? We think it gives the impression that you’re not traveling from one site to another.
I think so- still wondering about having some of the collaborators’ sites in the top bar of discourse but currently the banner is working well.
Finally, happy to move discussion to the forums if that works better for you, just let us know.
All the best,
Flinn & Reece
