Thinking on the modern UX for the indymedia reboot.

Tabs are a line at the top of the page - metaphor is not buttons. You are switching sheets of paper. The page is the paper. The top banner is the desk under the paper. Its an intresting challange to think through metaphors.

Useing buttons you are outside the desk/paper metaphor so its a whole diffrent thing, to mix them is not KISS and confusing. Good not to mix these up for UX


You are into early computer metaphors with the buttons - think mainframes. We are a "newspaper" so the tabs and table and paper sheets make a feeling for the project. Always echo back if you can for a project that is based on a solid past.

For new stuff "invention" is good and the will be lots of space and growth for this when the is up and running...
