I'm not about to go editing the main page without discussing this with others first, ergo I have made this post.
There are a lot of links on the Main Page & at the top of The List that are repeated over & over again. Several are posted three times on the Main Page (once at the top in the dropdown navigation bar, once on the sidebar, & once in one of the information boxes in the middle of the page). Rather than have them repeated multiple times, why don't we agree on where to put them?
Personally, I'm of the opinion that the following system would work:
- the sidebar should only have the generic Wiki links - Top Rated Pages & the forum, etc.
- the drop-down should have the core SCP links - The List & SCP Library, etc.
- the Main Page should have links that help newbies - how-to pages & pages on our jargon.
This isn't something we really have to make a rule, but this is something that makes the site look more professional & cleans things up a lot.
