Re: [libreoffice-marketing] WhatCanIDoForLibreOffice micro site

Hi Sophie, Mike

Thank you for your comments and feedback. It's really important to get 
feedback from the community to improve the site even further.
The site is not finished yet, there are still things to improve from the 
texts and design. Considering your comments, the following changes were 
made:


From: "What's your area of expertise?"  TO "What area interests you?"



On a general remark, I would remove the line above the item, for 
example when clicking on 'Tell me more', this line 'So you like 
helping and mentoring other people? You could join' is displayed, and 
for me it's not needed. It's not present under the Marketing part and 
I find it clearer.


@Sophie you mean to remove totally the line  'So you like helping and 
mentoring other people? You could join' or replace it with something else?


Under Documentation, the same line shows 'So you like sharing what you 
know? You could teach' for Books and Help Content item, again I don't 
find it necessary or if you want to keep it, change it to 'You could 
write'. And for Documentation I would add 'Video Tutorials' and 'Write 
Tutorials'.



Added as a note for the updates we are going to do, to add 'Video 
Tutorials' and 'Write Tutorials' under Documentation.


On Infrastructure, I would replace 'Learn' by 'Participate' or 
something more inclusive than just learning which gives an impression 
of lurking


This is done.

On Translation and Localization, I would do a translation part which 
concerns documentation, websites, marketing materials, and a 
localization part which concerns LibreOffice products or infrastructure.


On Advocacy, there is a typo in 'Give presantations' vs 'Give 
presentations'. Edited.

Translations:

I have a last question, is the site accessible? I've tried to navigate 
through the page, but I'm only able to change the language, not to 
navigate through the buttons.


Yes the site is accessible. In the above link for the sitemap, you can 
move through the buttons on the tree, and the last step is a link from 
an outside resource. Javascript needs to be enabled on the browser also.


On the next steps, some changes to do:
- we need to add 'cookie policy' and maybe also 'privacy policy'
- manage translations. From the link I shared we can translate by 
editing the code files. We will have a look maybe to use a translation 
platform, to make it easier for community to get involved.

- Improve design and graphics. Replace LO logo and favicon.

Those are some notes weworked with these days.

In terms of next steps, would be nice if we worked back and forth on 
this for the next weeks untill January and transfer the code to an 
official TDF or LibreOffice owned git repo with the ultimate goal of 
going live in February.


What do you think?

Cheers,

Sidorela

Nice =)

> What do you think?

Looks great; we use only real-cores to calculate on[1]; so I'd mention
2 cores - rather than 4 threads. As such we got ~2x as fast with 2 cores ;-)

Do you have a 4 core machine nearby - or better a 24 one ?

Lovely video though; I love the raw motorbike-with-hole-in-exhaust
ricer feel =)

Good stuff,

Michael.

[1] - hyper-threading is not our friend in the case of some heavy usage
and can make it slower ;-)

This is great -- thanks for creating it! Videos like these are really
useful to show under-the-hood improvements in LibreOffice in a more
understandable way.

> but you get the idea.

Yeah, the popping is an issue, but I like the idea with the engine. My
two suggesions would be:

1) A bit of info at the start, providing some context -- eg "LibreOffice
6.2 includes calculation threading, which boosts performance". Followed
by: "Let's see it in action, on a complicated spreadsheet" (I don't
think you need to mention that it's about energy markets in different
countries -- that's just extra info that could potentially confuse
viewers, IMO)

2) At the end, a quick summary ("So LibreOffice 6.2 uses all CPU cores
more effectively, for a big speed boost!"), and some crediting to the
developer(s) and their affiliation as well. I can't find much about
threading at https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleaseNotes/6.2 though...

So what do you think of those ideas? When we have a final video, I can
spread it on Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, Reddit etc. :-)

Mike
