Wikidot Design & Development

If I owned Wikidot

Sunday morning dreaming had me thinking of ways to improve Wikidot.

The other morning I was thinking about what I would do if I could buy Wikidot. I would like to whittle down that big list of user-requested features waiting to be added, but the only way to achieve that is to hire more developers. Developers, for some reason, are expensive. The obvious solution is to increase the user-base, with a proportional increase in income. More users in general, and consequently more sites, would increase revenue from advertising, and would also increase the number of paying (pro) users. Therefore, we need more mainstream appeal. How? Here's what I came up with.

New design

It's time Wikidot got a new look. The current design has been around for years (from at least since I started using Wikidot1) and is starting to look dated. I'd implement a new theme to be used across the Wikidot brand of sites (www, blog, feedback, community), and give the interface elements (page editor, site manager, etc) a refresh.
