In reference to Community page.

  • Write better intro description.
  • Improve content by describing each of the items available to the community (items being those things in the right sidebar -- and maybe more).
  • Provide useful links to resources for first-time community members.
I will take this on. --timsamoff 12:55, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
Thanks! Please create Task:Improving and put reciprocal links to the bug report Add RSS feeds to community portal that Dave and Ferenc agreed to work on. I also have some ideas and it will be easier to write them down once you start with a first proposal.--qgil 18:58, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
  • I'll most likely have to add some info pertaining to the new features that Henri Bergius has been working on (e.g., Maemo Forums, etc.), but I don't have the time to research right now.

Where to get dynamic content from

The community is dynamic and so could be the Community page. Potential sources of dynamic content:

Quim, starting to get time to work on this -- hopefully some this weekend, and then more Monday... Wondering: These are great ideas, but wouldn't they be more appropriate on the main page? I was thinking that this would be more of a community info/howto, but using it as a community portal works too. I just need to know what you're thinking so I don't do any unecessary work. --timsamoff 12:05, 1 August 2008 (UTC)
I'm not saying that all this *is* the content of the section. I was just thinking out loud the potential sources. That info&howto also needs to be there, and very prominent. All this + News + Pearl is too much for a home open to new visitors. The Community section assumes a default visitor more interested in the day to day of the community. A couple of these could go to the home though. Perhaps one day we have customizable homes for registered users and people can just select what they want... The basic info about the community needs to be clear in the section too, but make everything static when the community is vibrant is kind of a contradiction.--qgil 19:49, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Proposals for displaying dynamic content

With the understanding that the design/layout will soon change, propose possible ways to deliver dynamic content in an uncluttered manner...

Layout Proposal #1

Note: This layout is no longer relevant, as design for the general website has begun. Check here for progress.

  • Main page (textual) content on the left
  • All aggregated content on the right (number of tabs shown here could be reduced or expanded depending on amount of data that needed to be accessed from this page)
    • As aggregated content loads in each tab, a cycling progress indicator alert user to status
Layout Proposal #1

Content Iteration #2 (backup)

The Community

Welcome to the community!

Wikipedia defines a community of interest as, “a community of people who share a common interest or passion…” That’s what the community is all about: passion for Nokia Internet Tablets, passion for open source software, passion for new ideas -- the list goes on and on. Whether you’re a casual tablet user or a dyed-in-the-wool hacker, this is where you will find a collection of these passions -- a community constructed by spaces, events, tools, applications, and a desire to not only witness first-hand, but lend a hand to the future of mobile computing.

Admittedly, the list of community resources below is incomplete (there are just too many to include here). Visit each section to see how you can become connected with the greater community. Explore and you will find a number of additional spaces for involvement.

Community Exemplified

A healthy community is owes everything to the activity of it's members. The community exemplifies this reality better than any by continuing to be a passionate, self-motivated, and active group of people all interested in advancing Nokia Internet Tablets and the Maemo software platform. Nokia is proud of the community and below are a list of community-driven spaces that stand out and deserve to be recognized.

Community Experience

"Community" can be a rather nebulous term until you have a chance to experience the relationships, support, and friendship of other community members. Interestingly, if you are part of a truly authentic community, you will soon realize that you want to contribute to the community. The links below are for people who have reached the point that they desire to add to the efforts of the other community members.

Make a Difference

While being a part of the community is important, nothing is quite as critical as helping to make, the Maemo software platform, and Internet Tablets better for all users. To assist in this, every community member is asked to offer some time and energy into submitting bug reports and feature requests, and reporting potential security issues.

The Real Winner

Thriving communities are made up of many diverse people who have a common aspiration, common interests, and a willingness to help the community grow and sustain. In the case of, the community exists to further develop and improve on a leading-edge hardware and software methodology. The outcome of this effort is quite obvious: a mobile computing device that is powerful and easy to use. Consequently, the winner in this cohesion of minds and spirits is you. Consider joining this effort. Be a part of a community that has a solidified passion for improving on the Nokia Internet Tablet experience.

Get Involved

Moving Getting involved from the development proposals, since it was considered to be part of the /Community task. --qgil 11:50, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
