I know someone’s real proud of the new TUdiabetes logo and splash screen.
But really - even when I have my web browser taking up my entire screen, I never see anything BUT the logo “above the fold”. I have to scroll down to find any actual real content I’m interested in.
This is a very poor idea and there has to be some actual content above the fold. Otherwise only experienced users will ever do anything other than look at the lossy forum page and give up.
I would usually follow the rule of thumb that the site logo doesn’t take more than 10-15% of the screen when you load it. Prominent but tasteful at the top is fine.
The way the logo is designed it makes a very poor use of screen space (vast majority of screen is just white empty space).
The forum home page looks even worse on my cellphone than it does on my computer. I see “tu” and DIA taking up the whole screen. I have to scroll left and right to even see the website name and I have to scroll down a couple pages to see any content!
