Very nice. But I think the font of the pages are too small, not easily readable. I would slightly increase their size and make them bold to be more visible as click-able page links.

On the black bar or top-right links?

More updates - Less generic background applied, added more links at top, made them easier to find, edited welcome message, and am now starting to get to the more informational stuff.

It looks sensibly better. What do you think can be displayed in the place of the "Not found"? I think we need both a sort of news feed and a welcome message (it is actually placed next to the Kaltxi box, but the message needs to be less "revolutionary and more balanced though).

It is time to fill in the site and the pages. I am just not really sure how to write all this stuff, but it will come and help set our short term goals. We are getting there.

I will have to try and find which document to edit for the "Not Found" text,
that is because I deleted the WordPress-generated message for a clean start. The news feed can simply be added in a widget on the sidebar.

Edit: I just found it. What do you want it to say?

The current text is the following :

QuoteWelcome to Project Tribal, or more commonly, the Real Life Na'vi tribe. We are a group committed to finding a way to survive outside of the grasps of technology, war and urbanization to instead live a more free life as a hunter-gatherer society.

I italicized the words I think are inappropriate. This can actually go against what we want in some way. In fact,

- It is not only about survival, even if this is implied when we start. It is mainly about living in nature. Survival implies difficulties. We want to anticipate these difficulties and live properly even if it is in a more tribal way.
- Out of urban areas and an increasingly technological and news-washed society, certainly. Outside of war... well, we all come from peaceful areas, really.
- We already have an incredible freedom and wealth that so many humans dream of around the world.
- As we look for a sustainable land, it has been said in the topics that our project is essentially supposed to be a sort of community, but that won't go against local laws, principles and customs. So we won't create a new society, we will be part of the society that there will be, in our own way, and hopefully we can be useful to the local territory and activities and able to work within our natural environment. The point is to be integrated.

Considering these points (please fix me or tell if you see an issue), I would consider this :

QuoteWelcome to Project Tribal, or more commonly, the Real Life Na'vi tribe. We are a group committed to living in a natural environment away from urban areas as a hunter-gatherer community. The aim is to relearn to live properly while being in an optimal harmony with nature and work for local development or environment projects.

If we won't have technology with us constantly, actually learn to live without it most of the time, it isn't said we won't have some few computers to be able to access the Internet and keep track of what happens in the country, the world, and communicate with family and friends. This description seems to be more complete, pragmatic, and clearly set one goal that is not related to any kind of ideology. We just want to be able to live in a sustainable way in nature basically. :)

What do you think?

What do you think?

Yes, that sounds much better. I updated it, and another million things. Tell me what you think about the sight now...

This rocks! :)

I sent the site to the W3C validator. Only five errors were found.

It is now time to fill in pages. There are already the rules, and the about pages (that need a rewrite).

I think we can create thematic pages such as "Gathering resources", "Health" and "Life and good ways of being". This may be among the best choices to regroup the information we now have.

Fixed all the HTML errors. 0 errors as of now  ;)

I have very few times, as well as a little family inconvenience. Please help me. If you lack information or direction, I can tell you what can be done for the site. I am feeling a bit lonely here.
