That's what I've heard.

I've also learned around here that promises of new websites aren't generally to be taken very seriously. Maybe that will be different now in the post-Brian Page world. :)

Nothing special, just a fresh look that matches our branding and has a clearer message about our core value propositions and opportunities.

The only reason for the countdown is because an empty page has 0 public perception impact instead of negative impact we had with the previous site.
Do not use this post as information for making any important decisions. The only agreements I ever make are informal and non-binding. Take the same precautions as when dealing with a compromised account, scammer, sockpuppet, etc.

The countdown is up because cass is working on the design for the new website. Looking forward to it. :)

i fully can understand your feelings … hopefully we can convince you this time .. i can just speak from design point of view ... content is another part ...

It would be good to include options for translation.. I suspect some users are frustrated that there is only English GUI etc.. see https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=13587.0

It can be simple to translate content and even if standing text is hard to resolve, that can could just be a welcome page with text that can stand the test of time - request anyone submits a translation for each language, match two submissions and consider the difference.. throw through some online translation to check it's not wild. That'll likely be gifted to you for free, if you ask for contributions. It's simple to use a user's browser preferred language, to redirect to a page that is in that language or a place holder for it.

Haha, I certainly didn't mean to disparage your work, cass! Much respect for you and what you do.

From the glimpses we saw on Nullstreet, its way better than the old one.    Just dont expect it to magically take BTS to new highs or anything like that.

So this pressure makes the countdown changeable? Or I remember it wrong?
