I didn't say anything before because I don't jump on the forum and list everyting I do behind the scenes, but I designed the look and feel of the BitSharesX site and wrote all the content (with Cass implementing my ideas and choosing some of the images/design elements, of course).
I hear what you're saying and I agree, it's a simpler, more direct site to use for bitshares, but originally bitshares.org was what I was told to build. I incorporated every element I was told to. If I had it my way it would have looked like the X site from the very beginning. Stupid simple, elegant, easy to grasp.
I'll discuss with the team about changing our main site to something more like that, with at least a few more elements still included.... Would be silly not to include the video, as it's the very reason many people outside the industry told me they were hooked and wanted to learn more. B
