Very nice! Outstanding improvement over the legacy mepis.org !
:cool:

So who again gets all the credit for the hard work?


Two very minor comments:
1) MEPIS UPDATES should say MEPIS Twitter Updates, or otherwise mention twitter somehow?
2) "Linux" is not mentioned on the homepage. Should it be?


Cheers!

From the announcement:
SilverBear and his team laid the groundwork for a thorough reworking of the existing site. I became involved a couple of months ago, and have benefited from the contributions of the original team as well as a number of people here on ML who volunteered to look through a first draft a few weeks ago. Brooko made, as always, significant contributions at a number of points to keep it going.

Special recognition belongs to the incomparable peregrine, who gave selflessly of her time, energy and professional talent. I enormously enjoyed working with her on this project, as I have in the past on others.

You have all done a terrific job! Congrats!

mepis.org was a liability, and now it's an asset.

Yeah - great work! Really like the feeds and testimonials (no link to ML>Testimonials?) - it nicely links in to the community portal, here and wiki (although wiki perhaps should have direct front page link button?)
One thing that smacks me in the face as soon as the mepis.org page loads, is the desktop screen shot that is first in the queue - it's a bit full on psychedelic! I'p personally put the ootb default screen 1st in the queue, the tweaked ones further down the list... Just my opinion.

Great stuff tho - well done!

really nice, clean look. i like the icon for Get Mepis Now. overall structure is easier to navigate and it seems that everything is within the magical 3 click limit.

well done!

no link to ML>Testimonials?
We chose to select from the ML forum and lightly edit to form a pool, from which the three on the home page are randomly selected.
