Wikipedia:2008 main page redesign proposal/Casliber

Mine are more some ideas and observations rather than a concrete proposal. Page design would not be one of my strong points:

  • To promote the sister projects, list as a small bar across top (now empty whitespace) - commons, wiktionary etc. rather than way down the page
  • Cycle through featured portals in top right -- + maybe religion and one other
  • change to Featured Picture to Featured Media
  • Other areas of Wikipedia section could be moved to under Welcome to Wikipedia (alongside Overview · Editing · Questions · Help) and reduplication removed - lose local embassy and keep one only of community portal or site news maybe. In this way, help and help desk are similar and one could go. Same with Questions and reference desk
  • A-Z index must be redundant surely due to the huge number of articles. Doesn't everyone use search?

I may add to this
