Order of the projects[edit]

You changed it? Somewhere (maybe the login screen) is the "official" order. It's supposed to go from oldest project to youngest. No idea if it did previously or does now with your changes. I will note, however, that there's also a template that should be nearly identical (at least in terms of presentation) to this one. --MZMcBride 20:33, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

I moved commons to the bottom row (from middle) and wikiversity up to the middle row (to hole left by commons); I also re-ordered the bottom row. It seems to me that the four I grouped into the bottom (MediaWiki, Meta, Commons, Incubator) are all somehow different than the 8 other project in the first two rows; "metaish". The order of the 8 should probably be in a number-of-views or number-of-articles order. Project age is meaningless to the outer world, although that may have been a compromise to settle some discussion. I'll quick-move them back if this is an issue. I saw the secure page you just edited and will look into what's connected to that. Oh, the quotes are only required on multi-word font-names. Cheers, Jack Merridew 04:47, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Possible change[edit]

Does anyone think we should maybe change the page to be something more like this? --Yair rand 23:29, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

Maybe. I'm not a huge fan of the blue background and I'm worried about browser compatibility / the overall size. --MZMcBride 01:45, 16 December 2009 (UTC)
I don't really like the blue background either, and we might want to remove the Wikimania logo, but I still think having the logos in a circle is better than just having rows. --Yair rand 17:43, 16 December 2009 (UTC)
Also, the current version doesn't fit on all screens. On my screen I have scroll down a bit to see the bottom halves of the lower logos. I think we should change it to that picture minus the blue background and Wikimania logo, Wiktionary logo changed to the text one (it will need to be changed once the logo vote is finished), autofitted to the screen size, imagemapped links to the main sites, and at the top center the words:

The standard Wikimedia format and fonts are probably best; I don't see why we need a separate font and style. --Yair rand 07:10, 17 December 2009 (UTC)
I love the current version actually. Cbrown1023 talk 20:51, 19 February 2011 (UTC)
