A lot of good changes to the site.

One thing though that I think will lift the site up to a different plane is changing the fonts. You will be surprised how much it will do for the site.

Sorin, maybe you can come up with some good suggestions for this?

A modern, clean looking font could be Ubuntu: http://www.google.com/fonts/specimen/Ubuntu
Roboto is also nice: http://www.google.com/fonts/specimen/Roboto

One thing that is often forgotten when people are choosing fonts for Icelandic is that some of the special characters like Þ Æ Ð (þ æ ð) look quite badly as they were not properly designed for the font. This applies especially to the lower case æ and ð. But I checked both of these fonts out and it looks fine. Just wanted to mention this if you are checking out some other fonts.

Ubuntu is good but I really like this Roboto font. Very pleasing to the eye, nice round smooth curves and looks good in all weight variations. :D

Another thing I thought I mention is that I feel that the text on the site now are all just a little bit too small. Just feel like all the text might be upped a few px. But maybe it's enough to change the definition of the font as other fonts might be bigger with the same pixel size.

While the look & feel enhancements haven't all been made yet, the bounty functionality is now in place and partially tested.

If you are interested in trying it out and acting as betatesters please go ahead.

Maybe is little bit too much. Can you make the image smaller. I think that the search field should be on a clean background.

I need to shorten a couple phrases:

can "Samskipti við aðra notendur" become just "Samskipti"?

Can you shorten "Deildu vandamálum þínum með öðrum notendum og fáðu aðstoð."?


Also, instead of "Ask for free or set a bounty" it should say "Ask for free or set an Auroracoin bounty"

"Vote on answers and award the bounty" should instead be "Vote on answers and award the Auroracoin"


Thanks for your help.

Actually I think the boxes are a little bit too small. Would you consider to increase their height?

On that note I still think that most all text on the site is too small. Most all of the text is 11px which is way too small for good reading. I would suggest 14px minimum for most all text on the site. Regarding headers I suggest 24px as the most common size on the site. Then finally regarding the text colour, don't use black. Use a very dark gray text like hex #3c3c3c. That will make it more smooth and more comfortable to read.

Thanks Skarfurinn, I've englarged the boxes, changed the colour, and increase some of the fonts.

Can you tell me how to change "Ask for free or set a bounty" to "Ask for free or set an Auroracoin bounty"?

Also this phrase: "Have you claimed your Auroracoins yet? Get 636 AUR for free today at auroracoin.org"

Guys I'm still looking for a little help on those translations if you have a minute.

Other than that, we're ready to start testing. Please feel free to load up a few Auroracoins and start asking/answering questions.

Thanks for your assistance and remember not to put too many AURs in play yet.
