    @0xb100d I've prepared a PR that adds links to Wiki, Community Projects (on the wiki) as well as links to a bunch of chats. Most are gitter chats, and keybase is the last. I've not linked discord any others yet. If all outstanding PRs on mw/site gets merged, the result would look like this: https://sesam.github.io/grin-site/

    i havent looked into the edit history but some discord made it to the homepage
    with links to the wiki I can easily add the slew of community created channels

    @sesam
    @0xb100d right, in the footer. I made a PR replacing discord with Keybase, since most will anyway use keybase for wallet send convenience

    @0xb100d @sesam I have no idea what you mean. The moderators are always active, could you point a situation out to me that isn't accurately handled? Or that someone hasn't been helped? Also. Alot of people use Discord, and not Keybase. Don't force people into a certain technology if they wish to stay with their to-go-to platforms, you will reach less people.
    I'm also going to respond on that PR. Because Discord is a large platform, far more adopted than keybase, let them co-exist.

    put the keybase on the website, wait a month and see which platform is more actively joined.

    its a great community channel but the aims are much broader than the core community I think, and in projects like this we want to minimize points of contact as much as possible. I am on there every day and am grateful for it

    Hi @sesam for me the "what's MimbleWimble" button on the homepage is still not very easy to see (when I don't hover on it)
    Simon B.
    @sesam
    Lance I agree. I was thinking changing the hover effect to "hover to show the black border" and maybe match border width with smiley logo border width.
    that would mean making that button and the github button much more "explicit" vs original design, so that's why I started with a smaller nuance in my direction. boiling the frog-style

    Hi there, is anyone here writing a frontend to the wallet?
    Simon B.
    @sesam
    :) Maybe try search above. Right now I can remember i1skn (native), kylanhurt (react-native), grin-web-wallet (web AngularJS, somewhat broken and maybe not too hard to get working again)
    then there's wallet713 that's currently command line, will have a GUI at some point, but that will take a while
    maybe if you have the skills you could try building a UI for wallet713? there are designs available if you scroll this channel, or ask lehnberg
    you will probably want to set up a Keybase account for yourself, if you haven't already, and join the team grincoin on Keybase

    @kendricktan
    Ahh oof, I was thinking something with electron + react, maybe i'll just build one from scatch. In the mean time i'll play around with the wallet a bit more before building it :O
    Also apologies for delayed responses, I'm not too familiar with the gitter UI...

    @DavidBurkett
    @kendricktan I’m working on an electron front-end for Grin++. It won’t be ready for a month or so though. If you’re interested in helping, let me know

    @sesam
    :tada: :)
    Kendrick Tan
    @kendricktan
    @DavidBurkett for sure, definitely keen on the idea

    @kendricktan DM me and we'll discuss how you can contribute

    Hey guys. Made an mock-up of an updated grin-tech.org site. If there's enough interest, I can complete it and add additional pages.
    Comments on how to improve is welcome!

    @lehnberg
    OMG
    @nijynot very nice!!
    lehnberg @lehnberg is crying tears of joy
    nijynot
    @nijynot
    @lehnberg Thanks! :-D
    lehnberg
    @lehnberg
    @nijynot some feedback/questions:
    1. Top right menu. Is no longer a menu? Where did the rest of the menu options go etc, are they visible somewhere? How do you access “friend” etc for example?
    2. "Andrew Pelstra's Whitepaper” -> "Andrew Poelstra’s”
    3. We’ve discussed and agreed before that it would be great to make “Improve this website” much more prominent than the current bottom right small link. Maybe a banner or something that really encourages people to edit copy / design
    4. Would be great to understand how subpages like https://nijynot.github.io/site/friends.html should behave look.
    5. Looks like it’s not fully responsive. There’s breakage on mobile / tablet.
    nijynot
    @nijynot
    Noted. Was thinking of fixing the menu, reponsiveness, etc. only if there was enough interest to update site.
    3 is also something that could be done better, agreed.
    lehnberg
    @lehnberg
    Cool, and makes sense. Let’s see what others think, but I’m 100% for this, feels like a very nice improvement.

    @sesam
    nicely minimalist, like grin wants to be. Though I'm still partial to thick borders that rhyme with the grin logo black borders. Could be worth trying out thick borders, even if only as a hover effect. my 2 mGrins

    I just compared the current version with the proposed update, tbh the new version looks better in every way for me. The font looks sharper. The way the Floonet banner notification blends into the next element of the page looks fantastic. Would be nice if we could rewrite 'Scaleable' to be the same height as the 'Private' and 'Open' text.
    Super nice @nijynot

    Yo what’s up people.i wanted to introduce myself. I doubt the people I have dueled with over the months will be chatty here. I am a major critic of Grin. I understand the issues that are ahead. I decided to help instead of complain. Complaining is not helpful. I brought a tempered lens with me. How should we start engaging? I want to get integrated.
    Spoke too soon. Let’s work together guys. I told you I would come. I’m here.

    Is this where all the design and marcom dialogue is happening or should I be adding additional channels?
    lehnberg
    @lehnberg
    Welcome @numecca, glad you joined Gitter! This is the design channel, where we focus on UX, Art, and Interaction Design related to Grin. General project critique is best directed in https://gitter.im/grin_community/Lobby.

    @numecca
    I’m done criticizing. Let’s get to work.

    nothing wrong with criticism, as long as its constructive :D
    and yes any help is welcome

    Tell me, who has distinguished themselves as a thought leader here for anything product or brand related. Maybe the best way to get started is to have a chat with this person.
    Do we have a Trello board or how are we managing tasks?
    lehnberg
    @lehnberg
    I think there are plenty of such people. Perhaps you can start by first sharing your views and what you would like to discuss, and then the thought leaders might just answer
