We're now reasonably complete with implementing the MySpace design as static HTML.

We had to drop the drop-shadows from IE and there's still a small problem with spacing below the tabs on Opera, but we're ready to declare victory for now.

Please take a look at the HTML and CSS, and provide us with your feedback.

Am i understanding the terminology correctly in that the "Communities" portlet will list classes and communities and that it is the same as what is currently 'My Groups'?  If so, this goes against the terminology we have been using since launching SloanSpace.  For Sloan users, they understand 'groups' as the large umbrella and "class" and "community" as types of groups, so this change will cause confusion.

Hi DeeDee,

You're right. My bad for not keeping the header. I was trying to follow through on Bruce's advice not to make the "Classes & Communities" distinction above, and accidentally ended up with "Communities" instead of "Groups" like it is today.

I don't see "My Groups" anywhere, though. Regardless, I hope the changed version is better. Let me know if there's anything else.

Lars,

Thanks!  I like the new design, and even though all issues aren't resolved (are they ever?) like the My Space/Home redundancy issue, this is an attractive facelift and several steps in the right direction.
