Im starting to think that my replays are not being read or note being
received by the mailing list T-T

Probably my email setup lol.

(1) I think that we all agree that our primary target would be new
fedora users/potential fedora users, as the fp.org website is meant to
show what the project is about and not dealing with the so deep issues
of the project (thats what the wiki is about).

Are there deep issues that the wiki is not good for?

(2) This is more a supposition than any other thing, but ive been
working on web development for a while and i might have get some
experience knowing what a website should focus in. So if our primary
target is new/potential fedora users, what they might be looking is what
the project is about, what are the new features the project has added,
whats so different about this project that make it better over some
others, and essentially how to be part of the community, either by
joining and contributing, or just by downloading the OS and being a user
(in case they are not users yet)

Sounds reasonable.

(3) Our goals should be to satisfy our target's goals!, which mean
showing the necessary info to supply their need of information about the
project, but also, it should be motivating them to join, and be part of
the community

BTW, Máirín, i'd like to know if i might have access to the designs you
made for the Spins website. I want to work a bit about making the spins
more noticeable. Also I'm already working on fp.org by adding a news
section with the Fedora weekly news RSS.

It seems I deleted them out of my fedorapeople account to free some space. I have them on my computer at home so I will try to upload them to the wiki tonight and send out the link.

I have thumbnails of them up on photo bucket:

Please, i already send the link with the current design, please comment
on it and let me know if you like it or if there is any suggestion

here is the link again: http://jprada.fedorapeople.org/pagina_web/

I think this is a great for integrating news feeds and a spin promo into the existing site, but the existing site is still very focused towards community contributors and developers, NOT the user / not-a-user-yet audience we seem to be leaning towards. I think that will take much more drastic changes.
