Goals for the Main Page

I've been trying to keep the main page as short and concise as possible. We need to keep in mind the users of this site. The main page is, in a sense, the main user interface for the wiki... it is how people start using the 'application'. So I'll be trying very hard to keep only the most important and relevant stuff on the main page. --Ansible 11:32, 28 March 2007 (CDT)

In fact, either on the main page, or on the getting started page, I'd like to have a 1 (one!) paragraph summary of E and why it the greatest thing since sliced bread. And then 3 or so paragraphs of further explaination. Perhaps we need to have an updated FAQ, and the first question answers this. --Ansible 11:37, 28 March 2007 (CDT)

I just starded the FAQ. I'll try to hack in as many questions as I can think of. --mscheffler 12:43, 21 April 2007 (CDT)

E vs. E

There seems to be a difference of opinion on how to write E on wiki pages. In some of the original documentatin on erights.org, I've seen it shown as in an italic and green font. We don't have easy wiki markup for colors, so I've always been just using the bold and italic markup together for the letter 'E' when it refers to the programming language. However, this is not the only view, and Kevin seems to prefer just a plain 'E'. Can we create a consensus on how to display 'E'? --Ansible 05:50, 4 July 2008 (CDT)

I'd suggest creating a template page, Template:E. Put in that page the wikitext for how we want the name of this language to be rendered. Then in other pages, simply transclude the template, i.e. write {{E}} for the language name. This would ensure consistency and be at least as simple as '''''E'''''. --Toby.murray 07:57, 4 July 2008 (CDT)

I've just created a demo templte, using my user talk page. Use it by writing {{:User_talk:Toby.murray}} somewhere, like here: E, or E there. --Toby.murray 08:05, 4 July 2008 (CDT)
