From time to time, some users make inappropriate edits to this page.  Changes to the home page are bad because it makes the whole wiki look silly and it causes notifications to be sent to users that have it on their watchlist.  On Wikipedia they prevent this kind of abuse (intentional or accidental) by locking the page.  I think the same should be done here.  If locking the page seems extreme, there are Mediawiki extensions that disable edits by users that aren't in certain authorization groups, haven't contributed enough valid edits, or haven't been a member for a minimum amount of time.  --[[User:Lsloan-eclipse.org.umich.edu|Lance E Sloan]] 14:52, 14 October 2011 (UTC)

This talk page is for discussion relating to Main Page only. This is not the place to ask questions regarding Eclipse or its usage. For such queries, you should try a newsgroup on Eclipse.org, or a forum site like EclipseZone.

Index View

Is there any way we can get rid of the whole index paradigm for the front page? That's why the search function exists: to let people find pages. It's a little 'un-wiki' to have everything indexed on the front page. Anyone else agree? -051006 djspiewak [at] gmail

MediaWiki Extensions Link

It's interesting stuff, but I don't think it's all that relevant to most people who visit this page. I think we should either remove the link outright or find a better place for it. Thoughts? Djspiewak.gmail.com 14:01, 15 April 2008 (EDT)

New Homepage Look

The eclipse.org homepage has changed its overall LAF to be significantly less colorful and far more subdued. The colors on this page need to be updated accordingly, along with potentially some feel enhancements (rounded corners anyone?). I'll take a crack at it as soon as time allows.

Where's Indigo?

I was hoping to see some link to Indigo (as a work in progress) on the main page but there's no such a link. How about adding it?

Lock this page

From time to time, some users make inappropriate edits to this page. Changes to the home page are bad because it makes the whole wiki look silly and it causes notifications to be sent to users that have it on their watchlist. On Wikipedia they prevent this kind of abuse (intentional or accidental) by locking the page. I think the same should be done here. If locking the page seems extreme, there are Mediawiki extensions that disable edits by users that aren't in certain authorization groups, haven't contributed enough valid edits, or haven't been a member for a minimum amount of time. --Lance E Sloan 14:52, 14 October 2011 (UTC)
