Get it implemented? Not so fast, we need to apply your
suggestions to the
mockup and everyone to approve it, like Chris said.

The name of the blog could link to frontpage as well,
but I think we still
need "View Site" to be there 'cause it's more

Hey everyone,

This is the last week of my busy-period, so I'll soon
be back in  
black :)

Here are a few notes on Joen's latest 'sketch':

* While not entirely related to Joen's sketch, I don't
really like  
the new WordPress logo, if indeed the one Matt showed
us a little  
while back will be the final one. I am much more into
something along  
the lines of the hearts or something equally iconic.

* One the whole 'Aqua', I can get used to it. But we
need to  
implement it with great care, so as to not look like
an Apple.com  

* I'd love to see some bolder colors taken into use :)

* Shouldn't the 'View Site' link be on the name of the

* The submenu could be mildly confusing. It's not
immediately obvious  
which of the two links is the active one.

*  I would like to see the 'Preview' section moved up
over the  
'Advanced' section, especially if the plan is for it
to be live.

* I love the fact that the excerpt area has a little
more space than  
it does in the current version :)

* The password and post slug, should IMO be moved
under the categories.

Now we just need to get it implemented :)
