Thanks a lot jjj for updating the welcome screen. Looks great and very clean. Just 1 point about the layout: the 4 dashicons are 'far' from the title of the 4 finer points, is it on purpose ?

Nope. :)

What OS and browser? They should be centered and uniform and symmetrical.

Looks nice!

I have a couple of points:

Member Types - IMO, the description needs to be altered slightly. When a non-dev site administrator reads this and sees the graphic, it can have the connotation that Member Types is heavily integrated into everything BP (registration, xprofile) when it isn't yet.

Not sure what to add for text though. Here's an attempt:

We're laying the groundwork for Member Types in BuddyPress 2.2.

Currently only available to developers, registering member types allows communities to start categorizing and querying users by different types.

Complex Activity Queries - excluding activity-related stuff, same also applies to XProfile (r9178).

For consideration: Add back "Go to the BuddyPress Settings page" link at the bottom of the About BP page per attached screenshot. edit - or something to that effect :)

Sorry, I'm a bit late to this party. Just tested 2.2 RC2. The only feedback I have is that the member types image looks a little lonely in the center at ~300px - might want to make that a little wider if possible.

Call me old fashioned, but I kinda like it small and proud. Willing to concede to stronger opinions though.

+1 for link to settings screens

Tend to agree with r-a-y that we could perhaps adjust the user type explanation - perhaps with a little more emphasis on what might be provided as things progress with this or what eventually an admin user might have available?

We're building the foundations for a Member Types API in BuddyPress 2.2.

The initial implementation allows for a member type to be registered. Developers will be able to start to use this in their plugins or site functions to categorize & query users by these types.

This API will continue to be expanded on with the eventual aim that a robust user interface will exist to allow setting a 'type' from the user settings screen.

Too late for any string changes unless it's really really critical.

I don't think it's likely that anyone who reads the wall of text on the welcome screen will then notice a small link at the bottom of the page for settings. I personally don't like the settings link here, it looks like an after-thought, so if it's gone, I'd rather we leave it out for now.

#21 @DJPaul

As imath's patch is CSS only, I think it's OK to add that in for 2.2.

Styling for network-admin welcome-screen. Props imath. See #6171.

Agree about the settings link. I think I silently yanked it a while ago.

Closing this, as everything we agree on is complete. Thanks for chiming in everyone.
