    Hi All,
    We are working towards updating the website as the current one getting shaky and looking old. The change will involve a migration towards an open source CMS (such as for example WordPress) and making the website theme uniform across all pages.
    I am attaching a sample draft page design for preview so you can get a feel about how it should look. It will possibly be a bit more minimalistic than what we had before. Please share your thoughts and concerns if any.

    Notes: I don’t see a forum page in the design templates. Will they be under a different label?
    The educational discussion is still not on the table is it? Is it true that most of your visitors are on the high end of understanding plasma science?
    Do you look at it from a perspective of the next generation’s understanding of this science?
    I know there have been links to other sites that are educational, but they seem to be at a very high level of physics.
    Historical references in an educational approach could provide information that comes directly from this website. It will also provide a basic form of marketing.

    HI Patientman. the forum link is in the top of the menu.
    Education certainly should be part of discussion. We will be able to post education and new articles on the new site and hopefully there will be both supply and demand for them.

    I generally like the new web page. I like the new modern layout. It flows better for the eye as you scroll down.

    I would like to see the FFS adopt a new logo, more consistent with that of LLP and its webpage perhaps using its logo http://lppfusion.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/lppFusionLogoGreenGreensmaller.jpg as a model. Perhaps the world could be figured as the plasmoid with green and blue poles sticking out.
    This is even something I might be willing to play with. It could also be used on the forum pages to give them a more consistent feel – just a suggestion.

    Thank you for your kind feedback bcreighton7.
    While we do collaborate, just to clarify FFS is not directly affiliated with LPP Fusion.
    I will pass the concept logo to our art contributor as a feedback.
