Change title of 'Create' page to 'Start Creating on the Commons'


I've put the copy of the Create page:

Into this Google Doc so we can review and potentially simplify it as per recent discussions:

I've run through it myself already with some suggested edits (probably best to use suggest mode for any of your edits also). Among other cuts, I'm wondering if we can do away with the Key Benefits bullet points, as they're a bit redundant with the intro sentence for each section.

We've discussed whether to mention privacy options here, but I left that in for now. I think it helps differentiate between the three options, doesn't take up much space, and is something users seem to be interested in regularly.

Thanks Colin, I took a look and made ome comments. Feel free to reject any/all as you see fit.

I think it important to keep the privacy options.

I think the best set up in each section is either bulleted lists or one short paragraph and a bulleted list. I think when people are skimming a page, bulleted lists are more digestible. My comment reflect this notion.

Let's go with the copy in the Google Doc as it sits now for the new Create page, if it's still possible to drop that in before launch:

Big thanks to Laurie for her help with this. Matt, feel free to offer any final feedback since you pointed out the need to shorten this originally, but I'm confident we've gotten at your intent.
