:Perhaps we need to change the lead text. I put these items on the front page because they feel right there for now. The search tool is especially appealing. The link to the encyclopedia web site may be moved in the near future. But I'm not certain where it belongs. I think we may want a page for Philadelphia "history" and the academic study of our history. So the encyclopedia may belong there. Also, I would like to engage in this kind of discussion with more people to determine how Wikidelphia will be structured. I like the idea that we can discuss this here in the talk pages. [[User:Stan|Stan]] 02:10, 13 February 2011 (EST)

Main Page Design Workspace

The "Big Links" section of the main page is kind of crowded. I'd like to clean it up and make it more elegant. Sections with several categories might best be linked to a Category:Is-Wikidelphia Resource Page much like the Housing Resource Page. I feel that page is a good model. Stan (talk) 00:34, 17 January 2017 (EST)

What I have below looks much better than the larger size text we have now. That was a good idea, but it's shouting instead of presenting...
