This is a discussion on if, why, and how the home page should or shouldn't be updated/changed. Please share your opinion, suggestions, and ideas!
I'm proposing a home page update. Admin - Home Page Sandbox. It would significantly change how the page is arranged and would make it more mobile friendly. I'm not a wiki wizard, but I do think that this is a significant improvement. Additional content could be added without the page becoming too unmanageable. The down side is the categories available on the home page would be limited to the main ones and a few links for community use.
Please note that the categories chosen are open to discussion and are merely an idea of what could be done and do not represent a final version. In the example Category:Civilizations was removed and would likely became a Category:Society subcategory or removed entirely.
