Getmonero.org updated: One new page, new FAQ, translations, revamps and more

This is the last report from my previous CCS proposal and includes all the changes to Getmonero of the last ~30 days. I also want to say thanks for everyone who supported or contributed to my new CCS proposal, which is now in [funding required](https://ccs.getmonero.org/proposals/erciccione-website6.html) and it’s already almost completely funded. Thank you 🙂

## We need contributors willing to work on the website!
Contributors willing to help with the website are always welcome. You are encouraged to join the `#monero-site` chatroom (on Freenode, Matrix and MatterMost) to stay up to date and participate to the development. It’s possbile to contribute to the development of the website in several ways:

– **Translate!** It’s possible to translate the main parts of the website through an user-friendly graphic interface: [Weblate](https://translate.getmonero.org/projects/getmonero/). You don’t need any particular experience, except speaking a second language, but make sure to read the guide you find at the top of the page.
– **Resolve an issue!** There are many [open issues](https://github.com/monero-project/monero-site/issues) only waiting for contributors to work on them. Keep an eye especially on the issues labelled [“⛑️ contributor needed” ](https://github.com/monero-project/monero-site/issues?q=is%3Aissue+is%3Aopen+label%3A%22%E2%9B%91%EF%B8%8F+contributor+needed%22), which are mostly documentation changes or easy issues which don’t require deep technical knowledge. If you would like to help with one of those, but you are scared by the fact that you need to navigate the repository, feel free to contact us and we will manage to get you started.
