Created Jan 15, 2014
Looking at some of the baseline CSS changes in the new version - link colors and hover states are acting differently, as are ````p```` tags.

Notes on maintenance mode
View gist:0aaad22001893ea47acf

The messaging here is pretty wordy - it would be great if we could include a little bit more info here (with examples) to give a heads up of what this does - showing rather than telling,with some little inline example:



Mainteance mode will direct traffic to your application's maintenance page (at public/maintenance.html), or fallback to use our system default (preview^) if none exists.

Platform updates: naming convention

Part of this YouTrack ticket on UX issues with the current platform updates / platform changelogs:

Release vs Update vs Version

I think it makes sense to talk about new versions of the platform purely as releases (or patch releases) and avoid using the word 'updates' to describe the releases, instead keeping that word to describe the action a user takes to get the releases. An update should be reserved for what you do to a cluster to apply the Engine Yard platform releases.


I think the current copy we have is a bit too indirect / wishy-washy! Ideally these sorts of important instuctional messgaes should be more assertive, but not too formal.


Current instructions:

Unless your git repo is public, you must copy this ssh key to your repo settings, otherwise we won't be able to access the repo to deploy. Managing Deploy Keys on GitHub explains how to do it, just skip Step 1 and use this key:

Rewording proposal:


At the age of 20, I was in my second year of my BSc in Multimedia at DCU in Dublin, Ireland. We were given an assignment in one of our Media Culture classes to invent a meme. I took this very seriously, and made a controversial website depicting one of Ireland's most beloved TV stars (a puppet by the name of Bosco) as a sort of arch-villain.

The site earned me a spot in a national tabloid newspaper, a lot of confused emails from the public and top marks in my class!
