Identify the different users, and their needs and wants.
"The beginning is the most important part of the work" - Plato
Possible structure :
A page "What is Diaspora" => global informations
A blog => news for non-tech (including press)
A page "how subscribe" linked to podupti.me which explains how to choose his pod.
A page "What can I do for Diaspora ?" => contribution
A documentation (wiki ?) => for dev contributor and podmins
this is about profile information on the site, right?
I add a field for user type in profile.
You could tell me if you like in general the adapted user grid view http://diasporatest.openspirit.de/people
People who want to know what they can do with Diaspora. For example people who come from Facebook.

I would like to add the non-tech user that have joined a pod already but need a user manual.
I accumulated your notes right on the wiki http://diasporawiki.openspirit.de/index.php/DiasporaProject_user_profiles
@groovehunter it is about the people who can visit diasporaproject.org, why are they here, what are they looking for... And how can we give them answers easily, so what structure should we have
The way I see it, we can make use of the following:
-Those contributing / reading documentation.
-Those that do copy-editing (writing Announcements, Press Releases, etc)
-People visiting the site looking for information about the project, both technical information and general info.
-People checking out the project for the first time ever to learn about it.
-Community members looking to get their fill of community news and blogs.
