Hch, you said, "bring it up on the mailinglist". If you want people to use your change policy, it may be a good idea to put your change policy in the description area on your homepage.  Perhaps it should even have it's own page.  It's pretty hard to guess the policy as a first time user. -- [[User:J3gum|J3gum]] 13:47, 13 October 2011 (UTC)

[edit] De-pretty/complicate the page?

Hi! I've seen your edit to "De-pretty/complicate the page" and I don't understand why you did that? Don't we want our wiki to be pretty too? I don't think the page was overly complicated, just a few boxes so that one does not have to scroll down, as the page gets longer and longer. -- Ckujau 06:02, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

First, I apologize if I've overstepped. That was not my intention. I did try to add a link and header before the edit to which you referred. When added, the system generated table of contents overlapped the "custom box divisions". I added these two edits as two separate edits in case someone wanted to reimplement the "prettiness." I do believe these "prettiness" additions raise the bar for entry, that is not needed, for people trying to add content to the page. -- J3gum 14:21, 12 October 2011 (UTC)
No apology needed. I appreciate your addition and I agree that every formatting syntax (Mediawiki-syntax or HTML) inbetween context can confuse people who just want to add context. But the Main_Page is somewhat special, IMHO. It's an overview of the most important pages and I think we need to keep it somewhat organized and not every page needs to be on the front page. Otherwise we could just redirect to Special:AllPages :-) Every other page on this wiki needs only little formatting (just bullet points ("*") and paragraphs ("=="). I'd like to re-pretty the Main_Page again and keep watching the page so if another additon mangles the "prettyness" I'll gladly fix it. Thanks. -- Ckujau 20:59, 12 October 2011 (UTC)
Yes, please add the "prettiness" back in. -- J3gum 13:47, 13 October 2011 (UTC)
Please do not randomly edit front pages. If you think the format should be different please bring it up on the mailinglist. I really dislike the new look, but I'll give you the chance of getting more opinion on the mailinglist before simply reverting it. -- Hch 10:42, 13 October 2011 (UTC)
Please revert it, or better yet, add one in that doesn't break with the "auto-contents" menu. Either way is fine with me. -- J3gum 13:47, 13 October 2011 (UTC)
Done. -- Ckujau 19:31, 13 October 2011 (UTC)

[edit] What change policy

Hch, you said, "bring it up on the mailinglist". If you want people to use your change policy, it may be a good idea to put your change policy in the description area on your homepage. Perhaps it should even have it's own page. It's pretty hard to guess the policy as a first time user. -- J3gum 13:47, 13 October 2011 (UTC)
