    Nice new look and organisation, but what about regular contributors?

    The new site is a lot better looking than the old one, and the navigation is much more simple and easy to use to find what you want when you need some info (apart from some teething problems with search). However, what if I come to the site looking to help others on the wiki or DiBo? There isn't any simple navigation there - I'm pretty much assumed to use a bookmark?

    Might it be better to put some more prominent links to the community sites (i.e. top level of DiBo & Wiki) along with the feeds on the various technology pages, or even higher up the page tree? I couldn't even find a simple link to get to a DiBo view, just direct links to the posts in the feeds.

    Also, what is the positioning of the major Qt focus here vs the Qt Developer Network that's currently in beta? (I much prefer the Qt DN site, even after this upgrade to FN I'm afraid - although it looks like this site cost a lot more, the Qt DN site is cleaner and simpler).

    Re: Nice new look and organisation, but what about regular contributors?

    I too like the new look and feel. Would take some time initially to get used to the new layout. Lot of stress on the eye in the initial phase due to bright colors, hope it gets better soon or I get used to it.

    Regarding navigation, I agree with Mark. For e.g. while writing this post, I cannot see how I can directly navigate to the Dibo index or any other forums, which used to be possible in the old dibo using the combo box at the bottom.

    The side bar for the dibo would look nice if spitted in sections like the side bar of the wiki. For now I cannot read them individually without stressing my eyes.

    Still exploring!

    Edit your profiles (https://www.forum.nokia.com/Profile/Settings.xhtml) and set a picture. Once you make the profile public it will propagate to the forums and blogs as well. That mostly applies to the gray avatars, I'm clueless about the colored ones. (Yellow may be activated profile but no picture set)

    Update: Remember to set the profile as public in order for the image (and other info) to propagate.

    First impression is good, home page looks much more organized, to me atleast everything seems to be easily reachable..

    This is the imbalance I mentioned in the previous post.. I had to Zoom out, hence ignore the clarity in the image..

    Also would like to Sign-In directly from the top-bar and not navigate to a separate page to do the same. Like in Twitter, a small panel pops out, where I can enter my username and Pwd and Click Login..

    This post has text in 2 different font sizes and different paragraph spacing.. This is not giving a pleasing look.

    Also like to point out that, Text is hidden behind the image..
