The 321Go pilot
IGS-PandaNet tries to spread Go by providing Go players from all over
the world with facilities to play or watch Go and communicate with other
players by Internet.
Meanwhile, local organizations notice more and more new players
learn the game by Internet, through articles on websites, discussion
groups and online playing facilities such as IGS-PandaNet.
Co-operation of the traditional local organizations and new global
Internet organizations seems a logical next step to take.
In the Netherlands the 321Go project tries to establish a proof of
concept of such new ideas and possibly expand on them. A central point
will be the website 321Go.org, an intermediate between local and global
facilities specially designed for beginners.
Below is a proposal for
the corporate image of 321Go and the website in particular.
Various logos have been designed. Our preferance for the moment
is the 5th (last) one.
Two website frontpages have been designed. Our preferance
for the moment is the 2nd one. Click on the images for a
design size version.
After a meeting with the design group two main conclusions were drawn:
- The photo should be more general or abstract in order to avoid it
appears we focus on a certain group of people.
- The banner in general should be less prominent.
The following three proposals were created to suit these suggestions:
A definite decision still needs to be taken.
For propaganda purposes a sticker will be developed. The proposals:
The website content
The content of the website will change over time but initially we would
like to provide the following services:
- Oefenstof (van Wim Berkelmans)
- Helpdesk (+ openingstijden)
- Spelen tegen de computer (igowin)
- Enkele tijdschriften van de NGoB (PDF)
- Partijarchiefje 9x9 en 13x13 (heel misschien 19x19)
- NGoB link
Best would be to meet soon again so that:
- Hans zijn voorstel kan toelichten
- De groep feedback kan geven op design en content
- Consequenties bepalen voor stickers, CD en gedrukt materiaal
- Actiepunten opstellen
The rules of Go
In the mean time the design has been applied to the document
"Werkboek I" as developed by Wim Berkelmans.
explains the rules of Go and will be distributed together with
the 9x9 and 13x13 Go sets of HOT.
An initial version
of the website has been published.
Feedback and ideas will be appreciated. Please send them
