This is currently just made to look like I expect we will want to change it later. —Ashley Y 21:58, 9 January 2006 (EST)

IMO the logo and design looks very amateurish. Are there no Haskell programmers with some experience in graphic design? Or maybe someone who knows someone? --SebastianSylvan 13:06, 11 January 2006 (EST)

The logo seems to be well established as the "Haskell" logo. —Ashley Y 14:42, 11 January 2006 (EST)
That doesn't change anything. In fact, it makes it worse! Appearances matter, if someone who doesn't know Haskell comes here, sees an amateurish web and logo design, they may not consider Haskell a "real" langauge, but rather an amateurish effort not suited for real work. In fact I'd prefer an approach similar to e.g. the ruby web site (no logo at all, rather than an amateurish logo). --SebastianSylvan 03:49, 12 January 2006 (EST)
I should clarify that the "Haskell" headline logo is what irks me the most. The lambda-logo thing isn't as bad, although it suffers from many of the same problems ("every-effect-in-photoshop-syndrome"). I'd like it more if it was just a two color logo (and not necessarily green and purple) without all those highlights and bevels.--SebastianSylvan 04:11, 12 January 2006 (EST)


I'm going to change this page to better reflect the existing content of the wiki, rather than the content of —Ashley Y 05:43, 14 January 2006 (UTC)

We should probably clean up some of the clutter. I'd like to tansfer everything more or less as is and the let the site go to the wiki before coming back to clean up. I'm planning to leave the old web pages for things like the history of Haskell alone at the moment.

Maybe the "learning" section should be improved? As it is none of the links under it are extremly useful. Maybe they could be concatenated and split up into "tutorials" for mere mortals, and papers which probably aren't as useful to the newbie? Also, an idea is to redesign to have the news section up in front and visible. The more important items in HWN etc. could be put here (signifcant new libraries etc). After all, most people are very web-centric these days so using the site as a general announcment page is probably a good idea if it doesn't get too cluttered.
