Description

Following the meeting on the 27th November 2012, it was decided that the homepage (among other things in the site design revamp) should be changed, this is one of them!

Replacing or completely removing are both plausible options.

So the decision happened after the meeting and is not in the meeting logs? Please add issues / justification / goals for a redesign. There's no useful information here now.

No, the decision was during the meeting (see http://www.i2p2.i2p/meeting210 at around 20:43).

The issue (that I have, at least) with the left column of the current revamp homepage is that it is a blatant copy of the Tor homepage (which I am guessing influenced duck's redesign). Justification for replacing it in the revamp is that the new I2P homepage should stand out and stand for itself IMHO.

It was undecided in the meeting whether the column would be removed entirely to make more room for the other columns/content (as zab suggests), or replace it with other content. The unresolved question is, what do we want to show to people when they first arrive? What content will attract new users? What content will encourage new developers? (Existing users and developers would be covered with a satisfactory navbar, as they would likely be more interested in looking for other pages than reading the front page.) We don't even need to go with columns - the underlying HTML is just a series of lists, so that can be dressed up or rearranged in any number of ways.

changeset:2064e519568aebdd4da1731ed155422231094f15 replaces the content of the left column with a "What is I2P?" section, combining text from http://trac.i2p2.i2p/wiki/Content with the old column content and linking to /lang/about/intro. It's live on the website (link in ticket #807) - feedback please.
