  • ...would be to get a professional designer to create a real logo and a site template, imo this is long overdue.
    And by professional designer i mean someone prominent, like Jon Hicks.
    • The logo we already have. The onion can be used really well and in different ways.

      It's the site template, done in a way that we people making up new perl.org/cpan.org websites can easily integrate, that we badly need.

      • A proposed redesign for use.perl.org, created by Andy Wardley the last time this discussion happened:
        http://wardley.org/use.perl.org/test.html [wardley.org]

        A few different people tried to contact pudge with no response, so plans/hopes to improve the looks of use.perl were abandoned.

        Trying to do something useful with the wave of enthusiasm for Perl websitey things, at Digital Craftsmen we built this:
        http://perlisalive.com/ [perlisalive.com]

        Which obviously uses a modified version of Andy's design. Meanwhile, Andy was working on a re

        • Most of Andy's changes were meaningless cosmetic changes, and I simply don't care about that, and don't have the time to give to shepherding through things that to me are unimportant. I have too many actually important things to ignore! I know a lot of you care deeply about how shiny a web page is. I am not one of these people. I don't apologize for it, and I find it odd that your perception of the site would be so drastically impacted by that.

          As to the lack of news that Alias mentioned, I've many times

          • Oh and BTW, I think Andy's changes mostly look good, I am not attacking him or them; I am just saying it's something I don't have the time to care about.

            • If someone had the time and inclination to apply some of those visual changes here, would you be willing to give access to do so? (I realize that your "I don't care about those things" means that you aren't likely to work on them. I'd just like to know if that means you're opposed to them.)

              • Perhaps. As noted, right now the code on this site is a bit behind. I am planning on updating it soon, within the next few weeks. I would be open to pure CSS+images changes. Unlikely I'll be too interested in code/HTML changes, as those tend to take up a lot of time, but you never know.
