🚧 What Would You Change About this Website?

I've been working on this non-profit for a while, and we just finished rebuilding the entire website. Before, it was in vanilla Javascript, HTML, and CSS, but now its a mix of Gatsby, Theme UI, and glorious Server-Side Rendering. It took a few weeks to complete this, but now that it is done, I'm super proud of the result- I just want to know what you think.

Hi William, great work on the website :) Some observations/suggestions:

  1. Sign up and login forms don't have any client side validation except the T&S checkbox
  2. It was a little disorienting not having the navbar in those pages, even though I see the Go Home button, my cursor automatically went to the nav
  3. The trending/recent/unanswered links in the Questions page have a different font from anything else on the website, not sure if this is intentional
  4. In the Question page, it might be better to show "This question doesn't have a description..." in a slightly lighter color since I feel it's pulling some focus without adding any value
  5. The design is very clean but personally, I think the homepage would benefit from an image :)

Also, I'm seeing constant 304 requests on /learn.

Design wise the landing page is very blank and austere and does not effectively communicate what the non-profit is or it's purpose. If I were clicking around the web and was directed to it I would assume it was a scam site.
