#205 closed defect (FIXED)

Suitable home page for new mediagoblin setups

Reported by: Jef van Schendel Owned by: Jef van Schendel
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.0.5

Cc: Parent Tickets:


The first MediaGoblin instances are floating around right now and
soon we'll have our own public instance online. Which is great, but
there's one thing that would make it all a lot nicer which is a
proper home page. Right now got a quick "Welcome to GNU
MediaGoblin!", log in and register links plus some sample images,
but I've seen quite a few ideas thrown around for what should be on
that page.

-  Say you've just set up your own instance, what kind of things
   would you want for your new welcome page? What would make sense and
   be useful?
-  For our public instance, will we use the same page? If so, how
   will we change it and what should we add? How will our
   and relate?

There are several "faces" of MediaGoblin we could show. There could
be hints to help you make an account on that particular instance,
or set up your own. There could be featured images, tags or users.
We could show we're a FOSS project and that others can join us and
help improve/spread the software. Or a combination of all of

Alright, that's enough rambling for now. I'm assigning this ticket
to 0.0.5, because I think this is something we could really use for
that release and will not take a huge amount of time. It will
involve a lot of different aspects and people so I'm not assigning
it to anybody in particular. :)

I've pushed a new semi-placeholder base.html. It's a decent
placeholder for now, simple but it gets the job done.

I was thinking, maybe we should have a meeting some time in the
future to discuss all of this? Maybe grab an EtherPad and try to
make some decisions.

I'd really like to make something great for our front page, but I
need to know more about the content. :)

I'd be okay with making discussing the frontpage a priority on our
next hackers' meeting? We could even pull up an Etherpad for it.

Of course we could always discuss on IRC! ;)

Okay! We discussed on IRC and made some changes. I'm happy with it!
I'll run it by Deb for further textual change requests.
