One thing we need to decide on is how the gaia.customize.org mini-site is going to work. What do you guys envision? I'm thinking the same basic layout Imrik made, but instead of needing all the EVO tab, boxes etc we can just have it show the gallery nicely and put the message about global warming front and centre.

Okay so we want two layouts?

1) a GAIA layout like what you have to skin customize.org

2) a layout for the GAIA exhibit

Does that make sense to you guys? I think that'd work quite well. My main concern is how the exhibit links into customize.org. I'm thinking it could be almost a one page site that displays some information about the project and global warming, and then shows all the different submissions organized nicely. Each thumbnail would then link to its regular custo page (but using the GAIA skin).

Basically, like except instead of linking to the zip files it links to the custo page. So it would be quite simple, but give some freedom for laying out all the thumbnails and grouping by OS or type (icons together, etc).

i dont know how hard to implement could be this:

we start with a plain site, with some grass in the bottom of the page.

With a click over the "enter site or something" a seed drops to the field, then with each click it starts to grown showing diverse categories
text - global awarness tips - art - the suite

and with each "branch" we got many more like:

- VS
---- gaia by imrik
---- gaia by MAD
---- gaia by et al

hey akka :)

ego, your idea is cool but as Imrik says, usability is a problem. That was one thing people complained about with Desktopography. I like the idea of keeping it simple (HTML/CSS) and more similar to the feel of Custo so thats my vote... but if someone wants to do an elaborate Flash layout I certainly won't stop them :)

i'm totally with lamplighter and imrik. the page should really be fast and clean, because i've already made the experience that you get annoyed quickly by slow and uncomfortable layouts, although the looked very good.

Yeah the whole branch things sounds super wicked :) but indeed it might get annoying :/

Maybe there is a decent way to compromise? That would be a staple of the whole suite too ;) (Nice looks, and great in bed too)

sounds great.
I think we should have a variety of tracks. Ask all of your music friends to make something for us and get some publicity out of it.
