Hello,

Over the past few months, I've received multiple messages of people interested in working on the ArdorPlatform website, usually after criticizing me about the quality of the website that I built, with which I usually joined in since the site has been much of a pain for me, both with my head and my hands, and one that I admit could and should be done a lot better. However, all of them ended up not proceeding with a proposal for various reasons.

I have decided to open things up now publicly for proposals to improve the ArdorPlatform.org website as well as the budget requested for them. Proposals must include website development, website design, and content creation (I can help with this). Please don't send proposals that involve just suggesting what I should do if you're unable to handle all three, but feel free to find others to collaborate with and submit a joint proposal. Hosting, however, will still be provided by the Nxt Foundation until further notice.

Website Details

Purpose: To provide an informative website for businesses, organizations, and project leaders to familiarize themselves about Ardor to help them make a decision on which blockchain platform to use for their needs.

Content Requirements:

  • Front page with general overview
  • Page going over how child chains work (pruning, bundling, etc.)
  • Page going over the features available to child chains
  • Sub-pages going over each feature
  • Special page going over the benefits of using an asset created on Ardor
  • Page going over information useful for users
  • Blog-style page going over the latest non-experimental version
  • Download page including information on navigating the client
  • Contact page with a form for formal inquiries and social media/community links

The page for user information should not be focused on the price, but rather to help the user navigate the Ardor Platform with the client as well as what areas would be of interest to users, such as registering their name using the Alias feature or seeking out assets to trade. Wherever possible, Ignis should also be used in examples.

If there are other pages that you feel should also be included, please feel free to do so.

A Content Management System (CMS) such as WordPress must be in place for easy modification of the written content as needed, as well as for the easy creation of new blog posts. This is because most of the pages will likely need to be updated as Jelurida adds more features to Ardor.

Basic Search Engine Optimization (SEO) work should also be done for the website.

Proposal Content

In your proposal, please include:

  • Budget request in EUR (payable in crypto) and time frame
  • Portfolio of previous work
  • Team information and respective backgrounds
  • Rough drafts (can be sketched) of page layouts

Ardor Media Kit and Style Guide: https://mega.nz/#!kDhBhSiD!6_hqMf8hv5ByiChLt3ZnfLDO2B_TYjVve9Va-c1PPgc

Proposals should be sent to travin@nxtfoundation.io. I will respond asap after I receive it where I will acknowledge that I have received your proposal and will provide follow-up questions if needed. If I do not respond in more than 2 business days, please send me a message here or on Slack. The deadline for submitting proposals is September 15th at 00:00 UTC. Afterwards, I will discuss the proposals with the rest of the Foundation as well as Jelurida.

Thanks for your time. I look forward to receiving your proposals.

First of all I want to compliment you with the website you created for Ardor, I know you put a lot of time in it and I appreciate that!  :)

After I created the current website for Nxt.org, I would really like to create the one for Ardor too of course.  8)

I will send you a proposal!

I am not a webdesigner, so I leave the proposals to people more qualified than me.
But I've created a page on nxtfolks.com with the information about Ardor... copied from the ardorplatform.org :).
https://nxtfolks.com/ardor-platform/
If you think it's worth keeping, I will add the page in the nxtfolks website menu. :)

Have a nice sunday all!

BTW, I also think that the current ardorplatform website is nicely done!

Thanks TheWireMaster, I appreciate it.

Sure, feel free to use the content from ArdorPlatform.org. However, I would recommend re-wording some things and perhaps writing Ardor in your own words based on the content you saw as Google tends to penalize sites that copy and paste content.

I don't see anything wrong with the website design. Just more content like you said, and there's no link to a whitepaper which I see on most sites.

I've done sites on wix, it's pretty easy and all you need, but many of those types of sites are good. You shouldn't have to pay anyone for that.

Even if the site is done on Wix, it should be paid for if it's done well. Even if it's easy and all I need, I can say the same with the Avada theme that is being used right now with the FusionBuilder plugin. I just don't have the time to work on the design of the site, learn necessary things, develop content, etc., on top of everything else that I have to do. I've created the current site for free last year before I was on any stipend from the Foundation, but I don't think anyone else should be unpaid for that kind of work. Even if it's simple, it's very impactful and essential.

If you're interested, feel free to submit a proposal involving Wix.

I actually like the current site, you did a nice job with it. It's simple and gets the job done. :)

Might play around and see if I can come up with something that would warrant a proposal of my own. If not, I would also be happy to lend a hand if whoever takes this needs an extra boost.

Please make it work well on mobile too. The current website unfortunately isn't (fonts are waaaay too large) unless I force 'Request desktop site' in Chrome on Android, so I can zoom in and out.

Yep. The previous one was more mobile-friendly than this one. Didn't have time to fix up the responsive design. Whoever makes the site will need to take this into account.

Thanks! When someone is working on it, they will be announced, so you're free to reach out to help them too.
