Main Page redesign

The current Main page redesign was discussed at Appropedia:Village pump#Main Page redesign. This redesign is based on the basic {{Box-header-watch}} style used on many of the site's high-level portals. In this case, the {{:Welcome to Appropedia/box-header}} uses a green line header style with no colors or borders. The modular approach used here places most of the page's content in subpages and uses the Main Page to arrange the placement of each section. All of the pages used in this design can be seen at the PrefixIndex link below.

For a cleaner presentation, the "edit" and "watch" links are hidden in plain sight on the right side of each box header. This means each viewed section of the Main Page can be edited directly from the edit link, even for the rotating content archive sections - Selected page, Selected project, Selected portal intro and Selected quote. All the rotating content subpages can be viewed from these archive pages.

For the page, project and quote archives, Selected page - Nominations, Selected project - Nominations and Selected quote - Nominations sections are included. These unprotected pages (or the archive talk pages) can be used by anyone to nominate new content for rotating display on the Main Page.

The complete sets of the four rotating archives can be seen at the PrefixIndex links below. These groupings include the main archive page, the related content subpages, the layout pages for displaying the content, nominations pages for the first three groups and different color schemes for the portal group.

Let me know if you have any questions about this redesign. --RichardF 12:11, 14 December 2011 (PST)

WHO deadline mentioned past

There are still two of the three categories still going tho, check the link.I'd update the FrontPage if I could :-) I'm assuming this is the best way to notify y'all, and of course this can be deleted after its taken care of. --Ajay (aka @) 12:31, 9 April 2013 (PDT)
