This may not be a big deal but I find that most pages on the giffgaff website follow a clean graphical look apart from the community page. I have done a mock up of a possible solution.
In response I have to say Im not the best when it comes to the technicalities of the website. However I believe the most recent topics are slightly irrelevant because they change so quickly and are so small. Plus there is a recent topics box below already. Also this layout would simply hyperlink to the current community pages (e.g blog, ideas etc) so I think lithium would not be an issue. I see also though it is between providing a service for users and contributers. Looking forward to further discussion.
Hi driatheef I used screen grabs and a mixture of adobe illustrator and adobe photoshop to produce the mockup. Also thanks for showing the other link. My response to the other link is that that idea was just to add pictures. This idea is to simplify and bring the community page more in line with the rest of the website. Thanks
