Tools: Chat - Missions - Action Center

This is the gateway to our site. it should be soo beautiful, like a snap shot of all the millions of joyful smiles and positive action projects to benefit lives that we’ve created over the years. Its not, can you bring our community to life?

You’ll find suggested videos and tasks in ‘Missions’, when complete share your success with the community in the Hero Hub > Missions Complete

@albert_kai is going to bring his skills and kindness on to challenge this to improve the current homepage, and also use that as a template for the brightertomorrowmap.com

He’s going to start with the current ones gather.follocal.org and brightertomorrowmap.com, and improve them, keeping the same Menu (the Megamenu) and probably the same login. i’ve sent over improved text already.

@albert_kai you’ll notice that the Megamenu on brightertomorrowmap.com only has 1 icon ‘about us’ on the left. this is because its a stand alone project built by us, and within the Focallocal eco-system. Users we’re confused by clicking them and being led to our main site, so we’re only going to have the ‘about us’ menu icon there.

more notes:

it would be really good if you guys, @spartano @ydaniel98 couldhave a chat and give Albert any advice he needs to know about the current tech stack, homepage and integrations he’ll need to keep/have in the new home page he is building

(its very out of date and one of our community is working on a new one so we’ll be changing it shortly)

our mission

is there a 3rd video still? or just two now?
i’m going to have an animated video made for the brighter tomorrow map, so we could use that to showcase the projects we work on.
