Rhythmbox Needs You!
Right, where to begin
During my first year at college studying networks and software systems one of the projects I had to do was create a simple html website. I chose Rhythmbox because I really love it and because I would like to see if I could do any better. Unfortunately, Web design was not my strong point. I created a simple website. nice looking but it couldn't really replace what is currently there.
Programming is more my thing.
So first year is over but I still think about the Rhythmbox website and see it as a huge flaw in Rhythmbox's armor. Banshee have a much nicer site but still not the best that can be done.
Whats the problem with the Rhythmbox site? its old. its not designed very well. The content is really, really bad. It has no sense of community. Its not a good place for developer interest etc.
So I thought how can we do something to change this. Hmmmmm... Ubuntu users are creative people. Lets start there.
So the object of this thread is to try and get input from ubuntu users and for the community to create a design.
I have spoken briefly to moch on #rhythmbox about this and he said that if the end product is up to scratch it can be used.
What needs to be done?
*New content(description/words for each corresponding page)
*Community(Maybe a slick looking page with links to forums, mailing lists, irc and some cool stuff like lastfm widgets for the rhythmbox group on lastfm)
When it comes to graphics keep in mind this is a gnome project not just ubuntu so browns wouldn't be the best option. Tango is a good was to go in terms of color scheme. Bright pastel summer colors would be nice.
So thats its really, if you like rhythmbox and want to help it grow a new site is needed. The easier it is for developers to learn about rhythmbox the better, the broader the community the better the feedback.
P.S. Currently there are no Rhythmbox forums, This is a problem. After the site redesign maybe another thread could be started with a poll on what forum software should be used.
"The program 'apt-get' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing apt-get install apt" LOL
