I like it, but where do we find it except here.
I think it needs to be more "helping" oriented. I'm not saying it's not like that already, I just think we could sort-of "reach out" to those who need help.
I mean, think about it, if you where someone completely new to programming, you would have probably stumbled on to this trying to search something like "Ti-83 programming." If that was the case, then seeing a screen that showed two pictures of a calculator saying that they were both TI-BASIC (TI-83 and 68k), would be confusing.
This could deter the visitor and ultimately make him/her not want to visit the site again.
Think of it as a store. You are an english-only speaking American. You walk into a Japanese store with signs that have a bunch of unrecognizable symbols on them. Everyone in the store speaks only Japanese. What do yo do? You run away of course. What's the point in shopping their if you can't really shop there?
On the other hand, If you where a fairly competent user who had some programming experience, but wasn't exactly a pro, you may have been invited to this website. You easily navigate through the first screen knowing that you only program a TI-83. You then stumble on the TI-83 home screen. You see there's a forum. Why not check it out?!?
While orienting to different users will be hard, I think it would be the best thing for the development of the website.
Well, please feel free to edit it to what you think makes sense.
I like it: it makes the site sound like a huge advantage. Good job!
Coffee + Radiohead = ^^
