Refresh Fair.Coop’s Docs FairCoop Website Analysis

Some questions I’ve tried to answer so I could think and propose some sketches about faircoop website, and i hope you also have more opinions to share here, and to review the ones i’ve propose.

To who are we making the home page ?

  1. Activists that want to make a part of the 2017.fair.coop
  2. People that are interested in the commons, decentralized process
  3. People that work, write, study the areas that 2017.fair.coop covers
  4. Cryptocurrency enthusiasts
  5. Web surfers redirected by news about 2017.fair.coop
  6.  …………….. do you have more topics ?

What the home page should compile:

  1. Actual information about the 2017.fair.coop and the projects, like the bulletins information
  2. Short description about relevant information , like what is 2017.fair.coop, what is faircoin, what is fair.market
  3. The homepage needs to serve as an effective introduction to 2017.fair.coop for all of the user groups identified above, and provide easy access to all of the areas of the site. In part this is done by the use of an effective navigation system, supported by effective site search. Also by the design and content presented on the front page itself.
  4. The front page should present the story of 2017.fair.coop for new users unfamiliar with what 2017.fair.coop is all about, and provide channels of engagement to encourage and enable new site visitors to learn more, to interact and to get involved. We should understand what the paths to engagement are, and develop these. It may be possible to have a different front page for logged in users, that takes away the broad introduction and instead focusses on quick access to content and functionality that may be deep inside the site.
  5. Others?

What technologies could we use ?

Here his a list of the ones I seem more interesting , that can answer our needs and that are simply to use and implement with [shortcode]

  1. Responsive Sliders – https://theme.co/x/demo/integrity/1/shortcodes/responsive-slider/
    On the subject of sliders or carousels – while these are good at making a site look dynamic, they also take away user control. Often the use has no control over the slider or the timing of the slide change. I would suggest that we use a slider that it is under user control.
  2. Accordions – https://theme.co/x/demo/integrity/1/shortcodes/accordion/
  3. Block Grid – https://theme.co/x/demo/integrity/1/shortcodes/block-grid/
  4. Blockquote – https://theme.co/x/demo/integrity/1/shortcodes/blockquote/
  5. Columnize – https://theme.co/x/demo/integrity/1/shortcodes/columnize/
  6. Columns – https://theme.co/x/demo/integrity/1/shortcodes/columns/
  7. Content Band – https://theme.co/x/demo/integrity/1/shortcodes/content-band/
  8. Counters – https://theme.co/x/demo/integrity/1/shortcodes/counter/
  9. Custom Headline – https://theme.co/x/demo/integrity/1/shortcodes/custom-headline/
  10. Feature Headline – https://theme.co/x/demo/integrity/1/shortcodes/feature-headline/
  11. Entry Share – https://theme.co/x/demo/integrity/1/shortcodes/entry-share/
  12. Highlight – https://theme.co/x/demo/integrity/1/shortcodes/highlight/
  13. Icon – https://theme.co/x/demo/integrity/1/shortcodes/icons/
  14. Images – https://theme.co/x/demo/integrity/1/shortcodes/images/
  15. Popovers & Tooltips – https://theme.co/x/demo/integrity/1/shortcodes/popovers-and-tooltip/
  16. Pullquote – https://theme.co/x/demo/integrity/1/shortcodes/pullquote/
  17. Recent Posts – https://theme.co/x/demo/integrity/1/shortcodes/recent-posts/
  18. Responsive Video – https://theme.co/x/demo/integrity/1/shortcodes/responsive-video/
  19. Skill Bar – https://theme.co/x/demo/integrity/1/shortcodes/skill-bar/
  20. Tabbed Content – https://theme.co/x/demo/integrity/1/shortcodes/tabbed-content/
  21. Table Of Contents – https://theme.co/x/demo/integrity/1/shortcodes/table-of-contents/
  22. …………….. do you have more topics ?

After this points I think we can now Analise the rest of the pages, and can attach the technologies with the content.

We have a way to answer to the needs of lot of people already described over the several topics that born about the website and 2017.fair.coop communication system, including the forum.

On the next lines there his a small description and the links to all the pages under the English version, I believe that we can improve the way things are written , and how they are presented.

One of the things that I noticed his that when we click th main menu he take us to a page, if this link exists he could take to a page where we could find a “short vision” of all the sub menus under that specific structure.

About the menu for now I don’t feel the need of changes, more over the content, and usability.

1. FairCoop

/faircoop/

FairCoop (button/link) take us to the same page that the menu What

2. What ?

/faircoop/

Has the same content that we find in the homepage, except for the main text

3. Why ?

/why/

Why what ? If the menu his why, we should adrees the first word whit a Because .

Instead of :
There are many things in this world that don’t quite work
and here we share some of those which Fair.Coop may help transform:

It could be :

Because there are many things in this world that don’t quite work
and here we share some of those which Fair.Coop may help transform:

In this page the content his clear and short, I think we should only make it with more visiblity and readabiity using for instance the Tabbed Content https://theme.co/x/demo/integrity/1/shortcodes/tabbed-content/

4. Principles

/principles/

Here his a good starting point to thinkwhat kind of images or ilustrations we can start using for the all website, and ow can we find a good solution to use pictures with text in “chapters”.

Here we can have an idea : https://theme.co/x/demo/integrity/1/shortcodes/images/

But the question remains on what kind of visual concept we will addopt ?

5. FAQ’s

/questions-and-answers-a-faircoop-faq/

The image his really good

I think the way the Accordion his used his great.

Maybe just some point in the content could be updated or reviewd.

6. About Us

/docs/about-getfaircoin/

Wen we click on the About Us we are redirected to the about getfaircoin docs.

7. Promoter Team

/promoter-team/

While reading I think the content should be reorganized, if it’s a team, it could endorse first for the people, ad then describe the organizations in wich all the promoters are envolved.

Here his a good starting point to thinkwhat kind of images or ilustrations we can start using for the all website, and ow can we find a good solution to use pictures with text in “chapters”.

Here we can have an idea : https://theme.co/x/demo/integrity/1/shortcodes/images/

But the question remains on what kind of visual concept we will addopt ?

8. The First Counselors

/de/the-first-counselors/

When we click on the The First Counselors menu in the EN version of the site we are redirected to the german one, and the menus change the language too, but the content remains in EN.

A visual update o the trees, that are in a very low resolution, has well has the icons for all the councils could be changed.

Contnuing with the question on what kind of visual concept we will addopt for the images and ilustrations ?

Never the less the https://theme.co/x/demo/integrity/1/shortcodes/popovers-and-tooltip/, could be usefull alsoto give some information about the members to the user, so he/her dont be forced to click to see if the content interest or not .

When we click a member we are redirected to the economic council, but we dont give the user a way to go back, only the browser back button, and the user should know where he/her are standing.

/ecosystemic-council/

In the ecosystemic-council I propose the use of this https://theme.co/x/demo/integrity/1/shortcodes/promo/ or https://theme.co/x/demo/integrity/1/shortcodes/tabbed-content/ or a mix of both

so we can compile a litle bit the information and the user doesn’t need to scrool down all the page.

9. Organization

/coop-forest/

This space that we have here in the coopforest his alone comletly, and it informs , but does not explains nothing to the user .

25. Sidebar
