Hi all,

We are currently doing the
move<http://blog.openspending.org/2013/08/20/site-move-sprint/> of
the written content of help, resources etc. from OpenSpending.org to
blog.openspending.org (Wordpress). For this we are still looking for your
help, so ping us on IRC freenode #openspending this week from 16:00 CET -
2100 CET, if you can chip in an hour or two!

Thanks to Andy and Prakash, who helped out with our blog move a few months
back on the first leg of this exercise.

We have considered how to make it more clear to new arriving users *what
you can actually do with OpenSpending* on the front page, and have
therefore as a suggestion added four blocks of actions and buttons. The
blocks are replacing the [section] where the blog used to be located, as
the blog has now moved to blog.openspending.org.

I would be really interested to hear your thought on the new bottom half of
the OpenSpending front page: openspending.org

UI specialist or not, we'd be really keen to hear what you think:
- Do you like it?
- Are there too many blocks and buttons, and if so, what should go?
- Do you miss any concrete actions?
