I do agree with the comments in the screenshots but i thought it was 
good-practice to avoid forcing a certain width and allow browsers to resize 
things to fit the screen as much as possible?  It is not always going to be 
possible and it is less of a worry since 'everyone' is moving to wide-screen 
nowadays but reducing the need to for side-scrolling makes the site easier for 
people to use.  Perhaps just keeping critical information that noobs need to the 
left might satify both sides?

Regarding stupid comments; i think they are usually best dealt with off-list as 
people may be new to the list and just asking questions to try to get on-track 
quickly.  While core-contributors may not have time there may be other people to 
enlighten noobs.

Hi Christian, :-)

Thanks for your reply. OK, I've noted about working with the git repo.
Let's see if there's any kind of go-ahead from Florian and Christoph.
If we wait for answers from everyone, we'll never get anywhere and the
subject will just drown in circular, endless discussions. My aim would
be to do something concrete real soon. Let's see what's said...

I personally don't like the libreofficeaustralia theme as it is now.
Header much too high, language selection doesn't work (something
opens, but that something is covered almost entirely by grey
background, no selection possioble, etc.
Visit it with german locale and you're locked out basically, as it
then also doesn't even offer navigation, etc. So from first looks:
Nah, needs work.

I'm only talking about achieving the same presentation as on that
site, so we're not really worried about what doesn't work on that
site. But it's a clean presentation that will allow us to make the
SilverStripe site and content look good quickly, and it basically fits
the graphic charter...



P.S. My advice would be not to get into arguments with stupid people
deliberately spamming the thread with irrelevant off-topic comments.
They do it deliberately to break up the intelligent discussion...
