From: "Madhu Menon" <webguru at vsnl.net>
| The reason we are arguing so much about what goes where is that there was
| no planned areas for these in the original design.


| Perhaps we should just postpone any further features and changes to the
| main site till we analyse the survey data, work out a fresh set of design
| requirements, and then create a totally new design that will actually
| a plan for author bios, etc. I see no other way to do it.


| Until then, let's just vote on concepts (e.g., "we need a spot for an
| author's mini-biography") and not on the actual implementation (e.g.,
| "let's put it next to the title in a 300px box")


| Once we get approval for ideas and concepts, we can then work them into
| design. If, however, most of us vote against a concept, then we'll all be
| wasting time and bandwidth arguing over the design of a concept that the
| majority were against anyway.
| So, Michele, it's probably a good idea to rephrase your vote questions
| 1) Do you want author stats on the article page?


| 2) Do you want author bio on the article page?


| If the majority votes yes, we'll put that down as part of the new design
| requirement. We then vote on the design of it much later.
| Do you folks think I'm talking sense?
