    Re: Ubuntu.com redesign

    I reread Jono Bacon's comment. In my opinion, it doesn't read well. I wish things were worded differently.
    Folks, hold your horses.
    Implies haste on someone else's part. What really happened was that the status quo was changed based on the input of twelve testers.
    The position or prominence of the word 'Community' on ubuntu.com does not have a direct correlation to the importance of the community in the eyes of Canonical or Ubuntu leadership. In other words, just because you don't see Community in the header doesn't mean we suddenly don't care about the community any more.
    Below the fold!
    I do however think that the position and prominence of the word 'community' on ubuntu.com is an important discussion that we should have, ... at the next UDS; the very place designed to have those discussions.
    Then what about the change already made?
    ... Emotive ranting ... bickering ...
    Unfortunate choice of words.
    Finally, don't get too wrapped up on 'Won't Fix': people always flip out about 'Won't Fix'.
    More of the same.

    Yes you have.

    Or were the support posts you seem to have made a mistake

    Wow. That's crazy. I just read through those comments. This is very discouraging. I've always had a pretty high respect for Jono Bacon, but it seems like he's throwing us under a bus to keep the peace with his coworkers.

    Benjamin Kerensa made a great point when he said that it's not the Canonical web site; it's Ubuntu's web site. Ubuntu is the community supported OS. Canonical is the one selling products, not Ubuntu.

    They pay his wages. He's gotta tow the company line if he wants to put food on the table. I wonder how long before this thread gets locked or buried in an sub-obscure forum. This sort of topic usually doesn't go down too well with those at the top. They don't like people questioning things.

    Right. The leaders of the forums are the ones who have more reason to be concerned with this than almost anyone. The only people who would want to shut this down would be the people over Jono Bacon, and they're never going to look at this.

    Really? Do you have any evidence of someone "at the top" closing threads on the forums?

    Sad. I thought the people like Jono were sensible. Oh well, it seems all the time I took to answer those support questions I answered on this forumwere wastes of my time.

    Were they a waste if they helped someone solve a problem? I have a great deal of respect/admiration for those who can/will help others solve problems - just for the warm/fuzzy feeling.
