Is there a reason that the "Main Entrypoints" section was added? When I put together the page structure, I was expecting the "featured articles" section to be used for these things. Staz 11:48, 13 November 2006 (NZDT)

yeah...The wiki needs a structure and having entry points can provide a top level to that structure. to me featured articles implies a current selection of articles that are good(changing), not just the best of the best(static). Gible 16:08, 13 November 2006 (NZDT)

Regarding replacing the ship design and people entrypoints with category links...people I can understand, but I don't think it will work as well for ship design as the category pages only lists the pages in that category. Compare to what I'm building for race design. I think it would be better to have a separate page for ship design that is organised by the ship's purpose etc. There's nothing stopping us from doing this with the category page, but it would end up with the complete list of pages at the bottom and its nice having a separate list page. Good idea categorising the library articles tho :) Gible 16:14, 13 November 2006 (NZDT)

PS if you want to edit the side box the page to edit is Mediawiki:Sidebar Gible

I was thinking it would be nice to have a "Recent Changes" link in the menu to the left. Unfortunatly, my limited Wiki knowledge does not prevail in knowing exactly what I'd need to add for that to work. Plus, I wanted to ask you first. ;) --Eagle of Fire 09:40, 7 February 2009 (NZDT)
hmmm I'm sure it used to be in the toolbox, and has been replaced by Related changes...I'll look into how to edit the toolbox Gible 10:55, 7 February 2009 (NZDT)

Nice addition of the welcome message to the wiki. I looked through the change history code to see if it was a user welcome or a personal welcome. Nice touch. --Nmid
