Hi Dave,


Thank you for your answers. 


I visited all the websites and I think they would look much better with a consistent color scheme. I’m going to try your suggested scheme. Also, if there is a range of different colors for the logo, then a good idea might be to use the same logo color for the websites that have more related content between them (i.e. homepage and activities).


Thanks for the prioritization of the websites, I will definitely take it into consideration when working on the redesign.


Jekyll is pretty good, another good option is NodeJS-based static site generator Hexo. Wouldn’t it might be more simple for the developers to use a same CMS or static site generator for all SL websites?



Best regards,


Juan Carlos Murillo

In addition to Sugar Labs main webpage, Wiki, Planet, and the Translation webpages, which other websites do you think will need to be redesigned?


I would prioritize/order them as: homepage, activities.sugarlabs.org <http://activities.sugarlabs.org> , wiki, lists, planet, translations, bugs


Which Sugar Lab’s logo color is going to be adopted: orange, green or blue? 


As I understand it - might be wrong - there isn't a single colour; the brand guidelines specify that a range of colors are used in a consistent pattern, and the brand identity is in the pattern. 




However, I think if there was to be one color, it would be the bright green ones (to match the bright green of the XOs)


What color schemes would you prefer to use on Sugar Lab’s websites?


I think it would be good to use a material design scheme, with a the grey scheme as primary, and the light green scheme as secondary. 


The current websites have a wide variety of color schemes; a same color scheme on all websites may look nicer.


I agree


Do you prefer a particular CMS? WordPress? Drupal? Joomla?


I think the existing CMS for each site are fine:

homepage, jeykll (https://github.com/sugarlabs/www-sugarlabs) 


activities.sugarlabs.org <http://activities.sugarlabs.org> , mozilla addons


wiki, mediawiki


lists, mailman2


planet, planet


translations, pootle


bugs, trac
