We're working a bit on redesigns of some of our main pages. I want to collect some ideas and pool our thoughts on goals for one page, the Tag Page -- which is here:
We've had some discussion on tag pages, in this question -- and it was a great one -- but it went in a lot of different directions outside of the narrower question of the design of the tag page (into tag visualizations, nomenclature, other good stuff) but I worked a bit on the visual layout and information organization on the tag page itself, and have a rough sketch that I'd like to use as a starting point to refine the page design -- addressing other discussion topics in parallel.
- less busy/overwhelming - cleaner, easier to follow information design
- quick at-a-glance view of the community engaged on this topic
- prominent ask a question prompt
- less confusion about Subscribe/Follow/Answer questions
- GitHub Pulse: https://github.com/publiclab/plots2/pulse/weekly
- I also wanted to point out @julvie's heuristic review, posted in this comment: https://publiclab.org/questions/tommystyles/10-20-2017/need-your-feedback-on-tag-pages#a725
Note that the code for the tag page can be found here:
You can read it in full here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1796lMEwSjUawamKIYebbsSikFBBboVK5lZ6jZFKJLXI/edit
You can edit the design yourself in this Google Presentation: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1TCZoTfuhamRVrUak8aDgqJAwSgyhRtZg2Pgacl2_4zc/edit#slide=id.g3924eb58a4_0_0
After just doing some basic design cleanup, I guess I'd like to see people featured more prominently, maybe kind of like on Community Toolbox at the page bottom. Maybe using Froala Design Blocks as we did on the welcome page design could help with this, although it might push the rest of the content down even further.
