Talk:Main Page

Let's keep the layout consistent and simple on this page. Title of section and a short paragraph should be sufficient.--Antonioli, Joseph A 09:48, 14 August 2008 (EDT)

Logo for LIS wiki

It was fine when it was just EdTech. What should it be now?--Antonioli, Joseph A 14:01, 14 August 2008 (EDT)

Regardless of the logo, it should no longer say "EdTech", sin ce that's only a section of the wiki now. The Wiki is LIS, so the graphic, below "1800" should say "LIS". It's the most prominent indicator of where you are as a user/visitor to the wiki.--Carson, Bryan P. 14:12, 14 August 2008 (EDT)

Re-using Key Surveys

I've been trying to get a survey to people who are editing and revising it and therefore need to see it several times. They got it the first time, but it wasn't re-sent after that because "An email has been sent earlier and survey has been completed". Turns out you have to set an option when creating the survey to allow multiple responses from the same computer (which for most survey purposes is probably not a good idea, so I checked Don't Allow). You have to dig through Key Survey's Help to find this info; the implications aren't explained where you actually set the option. Would it be possible to put some kind of note on our Key Survey page to warn users?

Topher Hunt: Testing a condensed format

Hi everyone,

I've just tested out a more condensed layout for this page. In this layout the convention is: Each section gets a bullet, not a section header (to minimize vertical space) and the link to each section is in bold to draw the eye to it, with descriptive text following it on the same line.

As far as ordering of links, alphabetization only works well if each section has a very clear-cut name that people will be looking for when they arrive at the main page. Given that I feel people here will browse by content more than title, I think it's appropriate to order pages by how wide the projected audience is. Please give feedback. If you think the new layout is dismal please give feedback on that too.
