Moving "recent changes"

Hi Themis - could you move the 'Recent Changes' stuff up towards the top of the lh navbar? It's the first thing I look at whenever I log onto a (MediaWiki-powered) wiki, and it's a PITA to have to scroll down before I get to it. Cheers --ChaRleyTroniC 17:07, 13 July 2006 (CDT)

Done! It's the first thing I look at as well, so it made sense, even though from an organisational point of view it belongs where it was before... oh well! :) Gryzor 08:45, 14 July 2006 (CDT)

Moving the search

field a bit more to the top of the left menu will be nice, so its easier to search articles without scrolling around. Hope you can do that PLEAAAASE :-) Kangaroo MusiQue of HJT 09:36, 5 August 2006 (CEST)

That would be nice - I think it should be higher, too. The problem is, this has to do with the skin, and I'm not yet as comfortable with customising it... if someone knows how, please step forward! Gryzor 16:48, 5 August 2006 (CEST)
so i now have moved the search field for the "monobook" template a bit up :) TO THE TOP :-D and leaved the searchfield at the bottom also. If you want, i can delete the search-field at the bottom later, to get things a bit thinner. Kangaroo MusiQue of HJT 16:10, 14 August 2006 (CEST)

Main page:

Yesterday, Kanga and me thought about how to do a good entry point for the articles of the Wiki and came to the conclusion that the main page wastes too much space and the sidebar gets too big. If it is ok, I will think about a new design of the main page during the weekend and maybe prepare a first design under in the "Loose Lemmas" article. --Octoate 10:09, 11 August 2006 (CEST)

Basically, I was thinking of creating text boxes on the main page. That was my intention right from the beginning, and I thought I'd do it once there's enough stuff. I'm not too sure about how to shorten the sidebar, though... Gryzor 22:08, 11 August 2006 (CEST)
Just dont add the whole CPC Models again :-) summarize the stuff in "CPC-Models" and you won 4-Lines in the Side.Bar Kangaroo MusiQue of HJT 22:20, 11 August 2006 (CEST)
Well, I know you're somewhat right, but I'd like to hope that by having them there would motivate someone to write something extensive on a single model... later on maybe I'll pull it in (probably two entries: CPC and CPC+/GX4000)... By the way, I've managed to tidy up the Sidebar a bit. Gryzor 07:12, 12 August 2006 (CEST)
Seems, that we can be happy if someones writes an article for at least one model of the old generation CPCs ;-) As the hardware is nearly the same between the first 3 models, I think one article should be enough. I modified the sidebar a little bit and changed the font size of the "mono book" skin back to its correct size of 127%. -- Prodatron 18:47, 12 August 2006 (CEST)

I think we shouldn't copy the links in the sidebar on the main page. What's about sections like:

  • Welcome/Description
  • CPC scene news
  • CPCWiki related news
  • new articles (larger ones)
  • additional important links not listed in the sidebar
