Where was i speaking of a FESCO Vote? No, what it really requires is
the interest to do the things right. To think before you do. To really
care about your old and new users. There is already a website team.
But before i will join them or work with them together, i read a lot
and try to find out what will happen. And i doubt it was the website
team who made the decision how ugly (sorry just IMO) and poor it looks
like.

And what happens is best described in that long thread.

Pointlessly arguing in FESCo.. That pointlessly arguing brought up a
lot. Still not enough, but a lot. So i have to do the work. Not a
problem at all. I already made some pages. But i'm sure (more than
that) that the guys who does the job actually can do it not just as
well, but even better. So my question is, "why" is it then as it is?
And why would my work change anything? I think right now, there needs
some changes in some minds before.

I really like to contribute but it's still my decision. I'm one of the
2nd. class citizens.
