I think this needs to be updated

I think it might be time to update the main page. I noticed some things a while ago but since I'm not an admin I couldn't change it so I decided to just see how long it would take. Since it hasn't been done at this point though I thought I would mention it. The Main page still links to the Toolserver and that link no longer if we keep it at all, it should be noted as historical. Also, why do the things like Wikipedia link to the English version? I think these should link to a central page rather than be language specific. Thats enough for now, if there is interest in fixing it, I'll bring up some more.

@Reguyla: Actually, unlike enwiki, any autoconfirmed user can edit the Main Page here, but not directly (most vandals/spammers aren't knowledgeable enough to find the actual code). For example, the sister projects template code is semi-protected: Template:Main_Page/Sisterprojects/Code, and the full code (not localized) is also editable, as well as the English version and other translations. I think removing the toolserver is a great idea, since it's been dead for months. Just make it look symmetrical if possible. Feel free to make small or non-controversial changes without asking, but I think anything even slightly debatable should be discussed first due to the prominence of the Main Page. Currently the sister projects code links to the localized version of Wikipedia, Wikibooks, etc. instead of the multilingual portal. Maybe there's a way to fit both links in without making it look ugly. If not, then I think you would need consensus for that. PiRSquared17 (talk) 19:47, 25 October 2014 (UTC)
