Ha! Magneto is a comic book character. I’ve mis-spelled it as well.
I agree that marketing and training info is critical. I’m just getting started looking through materials, but what I’ve seen looks good. I’m not an advanced designer or developer, so it still looks rather daunting right now. So the more documentation, examples, and training, the better. Enable your users up front and that itself will serve as excellent marketing. And users include the not-so-technical store owners as well as designers and developers.
Not sure if it would be possible, but It would be great to have occasional (free) online seminars where Magento folks demonstrate and discuss particular features or tasks. Maybe the 3rd whatever-day of each month, or on an as-available basis. Send invitations to the email list, and record the session for playback on the support site. This would create a nice library of self-help videos.
Sessions don’t need to be anything formal or scripted - just jot some notes and walk through a topic. Maybe have a followup post on the forums to discuss any resulting Qs.
Anyone else like that idea? Or is that too much for the Magento gang to take on with everything else going on?
Just found the screencasts - excellent! Not sure how I missed them before, but as I said… just getting started.
