Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] "Get it here" community download promotion program
Date Thu, 07 Jun 2012 21:03:18 GMT
Hi! This looks so good! I do have some suggestions.  
	1. ' send a request to the ooo-dev mailing list and we can make a translated version for
you. ' takes you to the page of MANY mailing lists.  I can see someone getting overwhelmed
here.  People are not going to scroll too far down that list - maybe a direct link to the
page for translations without all of the choices - or - place a quick link button for Translations
at the top of the mailing list page?

	2. Items 2, 3 and 4 talk about the means for linking the logo - I really like the yellow
example below this (including the alt!) - could this be placed above 2,3 and 4 as simply 'Here
is a copy/paste link to use.  If you do not use this copy/past link and want to personalize
it further, these are the rules you must follow: (insert 2,3,4)'  I think this would encourage
the copy/paste (with the alt for SEO!)- and it offers an easy copy/paste connection for those
that are not into coding - but want a quick link.
Also, could the Image link include an alt="Download Apache OpenOffice here" that would help
- currently it is <img style="-webkit-user-select:none; "src=""

Here is the new page on the website. (It is not linked to from anywhere yet)

I'd like to kick this off with a blog post in the next week or so.  So
if anyone sees anything urgently wrong, please speak up now.
