  • Simplify the top box, and include the new Wiki tips article (maybe this is just a note for me) Vaguery 18:50, 22 May 2006 (PDT)
  • I think there should be clearly defined links on the Main Page related to both "Getting Started with Wiki-ing," which is what the current Getting started page is all about, and "Getting Started with Projects," which is just as important, if not more so, but geared towards a whole different audience (complete DP-newbies, versus current/old DP users who are wiki-newbies). I see "Getting Started with Projects" as a bit more generic phrase than "Getting Started with Proofing," because it's possible that some, albeit few, newbies may want to start with CP instead of Proofing. Just my 2-cents worth. Back to Jargon. :) Kraester 19:16, 24 May 2006 (PDT)
I removed "Getting Started" from the "Advice to new users" section because that section is geared more to New-to-DPWiki users, versus the Totally-New-to-DP users. The "Getting started" link still appears first on the page and will point the two groups to the best pages to address their concerns. I agree with your distinctions, kraester. The two groups will definitely want different pages. Estreya 17:53, 26 May 2006 (PDT)
Makes sense to me! I moved DP Wiki from the Jargon files to a base article, replacing it (with somebody's help) with Wiki. Shifted [K|k]raester's excellent analogy to the DP Wiki page. What a lovely little dance we've done! Vaguery 17:58, 26 May 2006 (PDT)
Wow! Looks great, you guys. I'll try to find time this weekend to flesh out the Getting started page a bit so it's actually useful. ;) Estreya 19:39, 26 May 2006 (PDT)
  • I think it might be fun to have a sort of "random" jargon item appear on the Main page, perhaps in or below the info box. Provide a link to a random jargon page. But have which page change, if not every time someone visits the Main Page, then every day or hour or.... Can this be done in a wiki? (Can it be done non-manually?)

  • This isn't just the main page... but can we get the image in the header to look like the one on the main site? (I'm guessing it's part of the css background?) logista 10:15, 22 September 2006 (PDT)
