Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Karaf marketing
Date Sun, 10 Jan 2016 17:29:23 GMT
Hi,

I did not want to comment, but my new involvement with Karaf demands for it
:)

The only thing I do not like as much is the homepage/landingpage/startpage.

The 3 columns do not attract me. The content could be a bit catchier, but
most importantly, I think the graphics (rubix, gears, cloud) do not make
much sense connected to the text. I would rather remove the graphics.

The scrolling "news" scroll too fast. Or better: unpredictably. Sometimes
they seem to be stuck, sometimes they move very fast. I think I would
rather prefer to navigate the news manually. Edit: oh i can swipe it
manually, guess that needs some kind of indication.

Overall it is much nicer and modern than the old site. great work

Fabian
