The Brothers E recently moved the "first time here" link to the top of the wiki main page. Do you like it there, or does it get in your way?

I think it's good to have it there for first time users, but I'm a little concerned about regular users finding it cumbersome.

I hate to say it, but I'm torn.
You're right on both accounts...

I guess the votes will tell.

[EDIT: Ok...I've decided. I think it belongs at the top because it needs to be somewhere that will catch the new user's eye. I mean I was on this wiki formatting pages LONG before I ever knew that link was there.

This will also help to cut down on people who come in and start jacking up all our work with crappy formatting and links. Subpaging is my pet-peeve...]

Yeah, keep it at the top. I saw it this morning and thought "Oh hey, that's a good idea!"

It saves us all some stress of having to deal with some ignorant newbie screwing things up because they don't know how a wiki works.

Well... there seems to be a lot of empty space up between the HR picture and the popular links... how about rearranging it again and placing it in that general area?

That's a great idea. I've placed a link on the top menu. I'm going to remove it from the home page. If anyone objects, let me know. I'll probably be closing this poll early.
