I understand that you guys want to try something new. I understand that there are already a number of complaints (whether constructive or not) about the website. I even like some additions to the website. But i cannot sit by and not say anything.
1) First of all there should be communication on all networks. For example some people only use reddit/pygame for discussion and help, and use the pygame website for docs. In this case, those people will never see mailinglist threads. I used pygame for 2 years before i even knew there even was a mailing list. Pygame is large enough to have its own forum as its base of communication. Since it does not, its all over the place. Mailing lists, reddit, google groups, facebook, twitter, IRC, etc. (and who knows where else) The average John Doe just starting python/pygame has to learn to tap into numerous connections to get help for pygame. This alone is daunting. (It would seem more natural to go to the pygame website and sign into a forum.) And all of these connections need to hear from "the almighty" (anyone pushing updates to pygame, and anyone in charge of the main website). Maybe if the community knew what you planned, it would make more sense, and you would get less complaining and more constructive criticism.
tl;dr It would be nice to hear from admins on all networks regarding pygame about major events...especially the main website changing. As well as responding and participating in exchange of ideas regarding the main web site from all networks on a regular basis.
2) All of my ideas regarding the change of the new site have already been spoken. However, there is not much response to them. Issues are closed, responses ignored, etc. It makes it look like you guys do not care about what the community thinks of the new site. And its a long line of history repeating itself too. For years, new users could not (and still not) sign up to post their projects). A lot of them had no idea where to post (a pygame forum would of been nice) to be allowed to create an account. A lot of them just abandoned the idea of sharing their projects with the "main website". Or worse went to another library. The few, were able to figure out how to create an account. This resonates the first argument. No communication (or very little).
I am going to withhold my comments about the new site as i fear they will fall on deaf ears.
