Page renaming

I thought that HaskellWiki:Community is more concise than HaskellWiki:Community portal. In addition, the Haskell Performance Resource is also just called Performance. -- Wolfgang Jeltsch 23:27, 25 February 2006 (UTC)

Page position

I argue this page should be removed from its prominent position at the top of the front page. This page is getting 10,000 hits, making it one of the most popular pages, but with very little content of wide appeal.

I think the name is misleading viewers thinking 'Community' will point them to something like thing like the content of the 'The Haskell community' column on the frontpage, when its just a guide to editing the wiki (which only 1% of visitors want to do).

So, my proposal. HaskellWiki:Community_Portal should be removed from the top of the front page altogether. Its second place, at the bottom of the page near the editing facilities seems more appropriate.

While we're here, I think 'All pages' should also disappear from the top of the front page. Site maps aren't generally the first thing you see on a web site, right? And that the remaining elements of the bar:

                 All Pages - Categories - Community Portal
   Language | Packages | Standard libraries | Idioms | Tools | Proposals

should appear on the left hand column of the front page. Currently we have to scroll over this stuff to get to the most popular content.

Opinions? -- User:DonStewart
