2015-12-03 16:59:58 +0000 <JazzyEagle> That's probably the only thing missing from the navbar at this time, and I didn't know if we wanted to try to tackle this while I'm wiring it up.
2015-12-03 17:10:02 +0000 <wolftune> JazzyEagle: mray doesn't want that in the navbar
2015-12-03 17:10:54 +0000 <wolftune> JazzyEagle: we *will* need that data to be present on the user's landing page, and we can go back in the git history to get that code if we don't decide that we'd rather handle it a different way
2015-12-03 17:12:44 +0000 <JazzyEagle> I'm not sure I agree with that. Some of the stuff he wanted on the navbar originally are things that aren't really useful after someone gets familiar with the website... A "How It Works" link. They're not going to use that on a regular basis. A link to Project Signup... A common patron may never need that, and those wanting to start a project won't need it after a project is set up. Why have those in
2015-12-03 17:12:47 +0000 <JazzyEagle> the navbar?
2015-12-03 17:13:37 +0000 <JazzyEagle> What we need in the navbar are things that will be useful on a regular basis. The search bar, though I'm not sure how exactly that will ultimately work, makes sense. The list of links under the username makes sense.
2015-12-03 17:13:44 +0000 <JazzyEagle> The avatar is nice, but not necessary.
2015-12-03 17:16:35 +0000 <wolftune> JazzyEagle: I agree with you, but aside from discussing with mray, he's the designer. So, we can and should express our opinions, but it's not okay to overrule him and just put things back in the navbar that he doesn't want just because we're doing the coding
2015-12-03 17:17:10 +0000 <wolftune> he felt that the numbers in the navbar make people focus too much on tracking the numbers where they should instead just check them when they have a reason to
2015-12-03 17:17:43 +0000 <wolftune> FWIW, I agree with you that some of the stuff in the navbar design may not make full sense
2015-12-03 17:23:03 +0000 <JazzyEagle> wolftune: Ok, now that response is a little concerning to me, as mray keeps saying he's focusing on the design itself and not specifically the content.
2015-12-03 17:23:30 +0000 <JazzyEagle> And even when asking about the footer, you told me to go ahead and make decisions about things.
2015-12-03 17:23:36 +0000 <JazzyEagle> So, I was making changes to what links existed.
2015-12-03 17:25:00 +0000 <wolftune> JazzyEagle: some of mray's mockups are not reflecting a final design decision
2015-12-03 17:25:18 +0000 <JazzyEagle> wolftune: The problem is, there IS no final design decision.
2015-12-03 17:25:22 +0000 <wolftune> JazzyEagle: and it's fine to make various sensible decisions as we go, especially if it's not clear about things
2015-12-03 17:25:35 +0000 <JazzyEagle> And every time I ask for one, I get blank stares.
2015-12-03 17:25:51 +0000 <JazzyEagle> Last time I was told to make the decisions myself, so that's what I started doing.
2015-12-03 17:25:54 +0000 <wolftune> JazzyEagle: in the case of the funding stats, mray specifically *did* decide that he does *not* want them in the navbar
2015-12-03 17:26:02 +0000 <JazzyEagle> Where is that documented?
2015-12-03 17:26:12 +0000 <wolftune> it should have been documented somewhere sorry
2015-12-03 17:26:38 +0000 <JazzyEagle> Even if it were documented somewhere, wolftune, there are SO many places that we're documenting. I can't comb it all looking for something.
2015-12-03 17:26:43 +0000 <wolftune> that's okay
2015-12-03 17:26:55 +0000 <wolftune> point is, if we're not sure about a design decision, we can discuss it
2015-12-03 17:27:00 +0000 <JazzyEagle> We have the wiki, the discussion boards, the e-mail list, IRC (and we havent' been keeping history), the etherpad...
2015-12-03 17:27:18 +0000 <JazzyEagle> I've been *trying* to discuss it.
2015-12-03 17:27:25 +0000 <JazzyEagle> For weeks now!!
2015-12-03 17:27:25 +0000 <wolftune> I'm just telling you that for *this* case, we're gonna not keep the fund numbers in the navbar
2015-12-03 17:27:39 +0000 <wolftune> right, I just mean each item
2015-12-03 17:28:06 +0000 <wolftune> like, with the links in the footer, if something clearly makes sense to you, you can do it, and if you're not sure, we can discuss it
2015-12-03 17:30:08 +0000 <wolftune> JazzyEagle: basically, it works like this: we go with mray's decisions as a default for now, bringing up any disagreements
2015-12-03 17:30:24 +0000 <JazzyEagle> Well, I set up the footer the best I can. I feel like I'm missing stuff, or I'm not laying it out well enough. If you could please pull the branch and let me know what you think of it, I would appreciate it.
2015-12-03 17:30:27 +0000 <wolftune> or questions
2015-12-03 17:30:42 +0000 <wolftune> JazzyEagle: okay
2015-12-03 17:31:09 +0000 <wolftune> JazzyEagle: which branch?
