From Google Analytics I've learned that half the visitors to Accurate Democracy searched for a tidbit like voter turnout by country, or single transferable vote, or arguments against PR. Then they leave - without having seen the ideas that are almost unique to this website. So I want to put those ideas in navigation "tag lines" at the top of each page.

Here are 2 views of a typical page. The second shows how mouseover changes the menu row and bold tag line.

It must look attractive yet impressive, cool yet dignified to its primary audience of college students.

Center Majorities

Ensemble councils can form central majorities for balanced policies.


The logo box in the upper left has 3 general-chapter menus below it.

The tag-line box in the upper right has 5 or 6 task-chapter menus below it.

The logo is 2 big lines, ~20/30pt leading. The tag line can have up to 3 lines with ~12/20pt leading.

The chapter row begins softly as white text on 25% gray, 40% border. The current chapter is 50% gray on white.



On a narrow screen, the tag-line box might slide under the logo and the menus also split.




Accurate
Democracy


Ensemble councils make central majorities and balanced policies. The most common problem in election systems is creating a
council with an off-center majority and one-sided policies.

On mouseover of anything in the top, the whole row of menus changes color.


Mouseover a chapter to put its phrase in the tag-line box. (There might be a different phrase for each command.
This is optional. I built a mouseover to give hints for a simple STV game. But I'll have to test if it can work in this system.)
A chapter's menu of pages drops open on mouseover or mousedown.

This is colorful, playful fun, responsive, involving: the tag-line box is rich in snips for quickly exploring.


It's not as overwhelming as the site's table of contents page.
But the colors are too loud to show all the time; it could distract and tempt readers from the page's content below.

The menu colors are those used throughout the site for each voting rule. Each rule also has an icon.


An minor optional feature is to vary the tag line for the home, contents and other intro pages. Maybe I should just choose 1 version after testing these on some friends who know a little about the topic.

1 Real votes for real elections reps /leaders/laws/power/gov/

2 Powerful voters make a powerful city. **  /reps/gov/laws/mandates

3 Strong voting methods make/for strong mandates

4 Good voting methods do not "waste votes."

If/When you take votes, use well-chosen voting rules.


Popular, stable, quick = inclusive, centered, decisive

The best voting rules are fast, easy and fair.

Budgets Readers need to see that we cover budgets, even if becomes a subsection of projects.
( I want some symmetry because that is a political goal and theme of the website. So the page title goes in the middle.
The "Chair" menu centers the page as a chairperson is supposed to be central. "Council" is the center of 5 tasks.
But readers need to see that we cover budgets, even if becomes a subsection of projects.
¿ How to fill the space on each side of the page title ? -- perhaps a couple of photos. )
