[edit] Protect?

I think we need to protect this. It really doesn't need any editing and gets trolled often. Agree? —FireBird|Talk 22:43, 2 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Agreed. Its been spammed a lot recently, and I fail to see how anyone could ever need to edit it as its information is pretty much unchanging. -- Tony Stony 22:45, 2 Jun 2005 (UTC)
I don't think it should be protected. I don't think any page should be protected, as it's not the wiki way, but I accept that the Main Page is since it's the first thing visitors see. — It's dot com 00:41, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC)
But why would any non-admin type user ever need to edit this? -- Tony Stony 01:30, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC)
There are few, if any, pages that are 100% perfect the way they are. As I understand it, the intent of a wiki is to let any well-intentioned user—regardless of whether he or she is an admin—make any changes at all that improve the site. To that end, no page, with the exception noted above and possibly some templates, should be protected. De-trolling may be a chore, but it's the price we pay for this freedom to edit. {humming "The Battle Hymn of the Republic"}It's dot com 01:48, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Alright, you convinced me. I give in to the patriotism. -- Tony Stony 01:57, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC)
It is really iritating though...I just reverted it for the second time in like 2 days. -- Tony Stony 23:41, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Stylin'

I have styled this page à la HRWiki:The Stick. Revert if you really don't like it. --Stux 16:45, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

Ah, but I really do like it. —AbdiViklas 17:07, 30 December 2005 (UTC)
So do I, except for the title in the tab.. I'll probably just get used to that though. — Kilroy / talk 17:10, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Forum Information

In the forum, there is a big italicized link that reads "First time here?" and links to this page. However, there is absolutely no mention of the forum in this page. I think that such information should be added to this page, keeping new forum users who clicked on that link in mind. --Stux 17:27, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

I agree — there should be some information about the forum on this page. I don't think this is the right place to provide technical details for posting at the forum, but we should at least have some stuff here about how the forum relates to the main project. Trey56 18:05, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
So what kind of information would be useful? Like the forum purpose, brief history, community info, etc? --Stux 21:59, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
